Simply not as advertised. No air-conditioning, although each day we were promised they were going to work on it 'today.' Very hot inside, temperature in Rome was in the 80s in May and humid. Because the air conditioning was not working we had to keep the windows open on a very noisy street with buses and trams running nearby all... More

Friendly staff. Clean rooms and good breakfast. Stayed on 3rd floor and there were lots of traffic noise. The roofbar was ok, and gave another dimension to the hotel on a sunny day. The reception area also offered a sitting area, which was good on a rainy day. Often you do not find that on 3star downtown hotels.

The staff was helpful and friendly. Shout out to Guiseppe for sorting out the train connections between Rome and Sorrento and for being very pleasant to speak with. The room was clean and modern and the birds chirping in the morning right outside the window were lovely to wake up to. Peaceful neighborhood off the beaten path. Very good trendy... More

We were lucky enough to grab a room here after deciding to stay in Rome a bit longer than initially planned. Rooms were fine, but got a little warm at night. Might've been due to the weather heating up, but with no air con at this time of year, it made it a but uncomfortable. Breakfast was very good. Selection... More

Breakfast was plentiful - fruit/pastries/cereal/meats/cheese/tea/coffee (nothing hot) Room was small - but had hot shower and cleaned daily Local area is great for dining and bars - save yourself some money and find somewhere away from the main square (Piazza...

Double room of reasonable size with a good sized en suite bathroom. Close to a noisy busy road. Reasonably close to the centre of Trastevere. Friendly and efficient staff. Don't be late for breakfast - you may not get a seat. Good place for the price.

Central location near a major trolley line. Place is an old Monastery, Rooms are typical (small) for Europe. Breakfast included with the room was quite good. Many dining options within walking distance. Roof-top bar is seasonal, so we missed it. But you can buy a bottle of wine at the market a half a block and have it yourself up... More

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

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.
