The friendly sisters of Santa Brigida oversee simple, straightforward, and centrally located accommodations in one of Rome's loveliest convents, with a rooftop terrace overlooking Palazzo Farnese. You won't find iPod charging docks or flat-screen TVs here, and breakfast is only served after the sisters have finished their prayers. Still, the atmosphere is serene and the rooms are perfect for the price. The Brigidine sisters, who wear a distinctive habit and veil with a
caplike headband, are known for their gentle manner. They sometimes offer guests tickets to the papal audience. Breakfast is included, and you can elect to eat other meals here as well. The guesthouse entrance is around the corner from the church at Via Monserrato 54.
