Santa Sofia (Saint Sophie) is one of the best situated nuns’ residences in Rome, on Piazza della Madonna dei Monti square, a splendid area with many shops and restaurants from which it is an easy walk to the Forum, Piazza Venezia or the Monument to the Republic.

Casa Santa Sofia is just 250 metres from the Cavour metro station, with good connections to the other areas of Rome. The main commercial street, Via Del Corso, is a 10-minute walk away.

The services are typical of this type of accommodation: simple rooms, located on the first, second and third floors (there is a lift), the majority with external views to the Piazza della Madonna dei Monti or the Via del Boschetto and some overlooking an internal patio.

All the rooms have private bathrooms with a shower, bath and other essential amenities. The rooms are simple and furnished with a bed, chair, table, a small wardrobe and a bedside table. There is free Wi-Fi connection in the whole establishment. Double and individual rooms are available and are cleaned every day except Sundays and bank holidays. Guests are provided with an entry code to use after the doors close at 11pm.

This is undoubtedly one of the best guesthouses run by nuns in Rome, with a very good quality/price ratio.
