I've stayed in the S. Prisca a number of times over the years. It is in a great location and it is clean. However, the rooms are tiny, the beds far too small and they serve a really poor breakfast. I've stayed in much better hotels in the same area for roughly the same price (Aventino and surroundings).

Six of us stayed here on a five day trip to Rome. It's a pleasant building in it's own grounds just a short stroll from the Piramide metro and bus stops. Public transport connections are superb. There are plenty of bus stops directly in front, including direct routes that follow the river all the way to St. Peters and the... More

The hotel is in a beautiful old building with sweeping, sunlit marble staircases. It may have been a monastery or nunnery in earlier days. Unfortunately, the rooms are only adequate at best, rather small and with almost no work space. Furnishings are rather shabby (e.g. linoleum floors with worn patches) and the shower is tiny. Breakfast is minimal and does... More

A Hotel with an excellent reach out. Just walking up after the exit you take a good peaceful walk up the Aventino Hill. Across the road is Testaccio with its extraordinary restaurants and trattorie. Close to Circo Massimo and the Colosseo as well. The Hotel offered us excellent service. The breakfast though I must say was Just ok. For an... More

This hotel was a nice surprise. Very close to tram and bus stop as well as Metro (Piramide) and railway station and only at short walking distance from the colosseum. The interior is luminous, the staircase has daylight and makes the place airy. The room was small but kept very tidy, the bed comfortable and the bathroom impeccable. Although not... More

Clean room, comfortable bed, friendly staff. Every tourist attraction is accessible from here by foot easily. The only problem here is the boring breakfast which was just the same every single day....

I often travel for work to a small town ~10miles southeast of Rome. I picked this hotel because it has a large parking lot and is very easy to get to main roads leading outside the city. This hotel is not in the heart of the tourist district but is an easy ~15 min walk to the Colosseum. The room... More

I've never written a review before, but I feel like I owe it to Hotel Santa Prisca to write something. My wife and I loved this place. When we booked our hotels we decided to stay at a low-budget place the first few nights then splurge on something fancier for the end of the trip. We wish we had just... More

Our original booking to an another B&B in Testaccio was cancelled and then we found this nice place. Location is perfect, 20 mins walk to the heart of Trastevere, 30 mins walk to Colosseum and 10 mins walk to stations: Metro Piramide and Train Ostiense. Breakfast had serials, bread, cheese, ham, eggs, pastries, yogurth, jam, cappuchino, juices and filtered coffee.... More

Me and my father stayed here 3 nights. It's walking distance to Forum Romanum, the Vatican etc. There is free parking och free wifi. The service is nothing out of the ordinary, but it's clean and works. The breakfast is an optional if you book through their own site. It's also nothing special and best avoided. It's not too expensive,... More

Staying in Testaccio

Neighborhood Profile
Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche (nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club hit, the area is full of locally owned small businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
