You can't hope to find a friendlier, more helpful person than Marco who works at the front desk. The location is great, but that unfortunately is where it ends. The rooms are really shabby and the bathrooms even more so. Breakfast was very, very basic even by Italian standards. If you're looking for value-for-money, don't stay here. It was very... More

This hotel is situated in a great location, right in the center, with walking distance to attractions. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very small but it is good for the price.

We had prepaid two rooms for three nights at San Silvestro. Upon arrival we were told that only one room was available but for the second room we would have to go for one night to the Doge hotel. We were actually in a hurry as we had a prepaid tour to go to that afternoon, yet we had to... More

The hotel is very centrally located. An easy 2-20 minute walk to most of the sights, but there are others nearby that can claim the same thing. The day-clerk at the desk is very unhelpful and unfriendly. He seems inconvenienced by every simple request, including adjustment of our room's climate controls (which are handled 100% from front desk - you... More

Although this hotel is dated and a little warn around the edges, it is in a great location. Minutes walk to Spansih steps and the Trevi fountain, plus very close to the metro, you can't go wrong staying here. We were greeted by a lovely man at reception, who was really helpful in guiding us to the local attractions and... More

The Hotel San Silvestro is a small, well kept, reasonably priced and very clean hotel located in the heart of Rome. A very short walk gets you to Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Forum and many other famous sites in Rome. The room was a bit small to be accommodation for 3 adults, but was well kept and cleaned... More

Don't be fooled by the photos! This is a shabby, tired and very depressing hotel. Granted it is in a very good situation for the main sights. The rooms were clean and the sheets of good quality but the bedspreads , rugs and furniture were more like a 1970s student flat! We were greeted by the Roman version of Basil... More

Despite the somewhat outdated furniture, this turned out to be a very clean, quaint small hotel with wonderful staff. Well located for easy walk to Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Pantheon and equally easy to get to busses and metro. Only maybe 2 dozen rooms, but 24-hour front desk. funny little oddities like a two-person elevator, and having to call... More

Just got back from a long weekend staying at San Silvestro. It is in a great location very central to all the sights. Few minutes walk to Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. 20 mins to Colosseum and 25 to Vatican. Hotel rooms small and basic but comfortable and has air conditioning which is a must. Staff very freindly and breakfast... More
