  Casa Santa Brigida - Farnese

A hot tip for Rome travellers - even Rick Steves knows. Not many people know, but there are quite a few convents in Rome that make accommodations available to tourists. These accommodations are run like a business - not a "convent." Moreover, the nuns really don't care if you are Catholic or not - the curfews at many are now Midnight. They are the most inexpensive, and pristine facilities you will find anywhere in Rome or close to the Vatican.

There is a complete convent list including Historic Center on my ROME page

Here is a list:
