We stayed here for four nights and were met by the friendly. The area is very good, it's a 25-30 min walk to all the attractions in every direction, we walked everywhere. The rooms are very small though, we were expecting small rooms but still, it felt smaller. The beds are quite hard as well, if you like that then... More

Trastevere is the coolest part of Rome, we absolutely loved staying here, so many nice bars and restaurants to choose from, we never ate in any other part of the city! The hotel is perfect, in a quieter part of the neighbourhood, the room was small but with a great bathroom and was always kept so clean and nice by... More

We stayed here at the end of February for 3 nights, and I couldn't really fault it. Location was perfect and we managed to walk everywhere and find our bearings quickly and easily. Lots of yummy restaurants and bar nearby so we didn't bother heading back into the city centre for our evening meal as we were shattered from all... More

Just come back from a 4 night stay in this beautiful little hotel. It is very well located within walking distance to many very good restaurants. It is also very well served by public transport with the 75 bus stop just across the Road which takes you into central Rome and right to the front door of Termini Station. The... More

This was our second visit to Hotel San Francesco. It is in a really convenient location for walking and tram/bus routes. The are is surrounded by good restaurants and local shops.The real selling point of the hotel is the rooftop bar but we missed it this time as it is closed in the winter this leaves the public spaces a...

We stayed for four nights last week and this was our honeymoon. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would say that let it down is that the rooms need updating. It was only a 20 min walk to the main attractions and is close to some lovely local restaurants which are good value for money.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights from 20/1/15 which was my Birthday. Everything about the Hotel was just perfect, front desk very friendly and informative. Stayed in 401 which was very clean and had a very big walk in shower which was great after pounding the streets every day. Great location with just a short walk to local bars and plenty... More

This hotel is well situated for walking to all the major attractions in Rome. Rooms are fairly small but very good. Spotlessly clean, large bathrooms. The staff are very helpful and the reception staff are brilliant and make recommendations of where to go and where to eat. They also arranged pick up to and from the airport and for 4... More

I was able to work in a short, two night layover in Rome to our recent trip to Europe. While we thoroughly enjoyed where we stayed near the Vatican four years ago, I was yearning for something a little less touristy and a little more authentic. Trastevere is an ideal location and Hotel San Francesco is a great choice in... More

Location here is very good a short walk to a tram line to Venezia square, or a nice stroll over the Tiber to the Jewish quarter. Very good dining nearby. Fun passagiata in the church square area in the evenings, with good street performances. The hotel itself was comfortable, clean and pleasant enough. It's most redeeming quality however is it's...

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
