Great location for Rome visit. Lovely Alessa sent us out into the evening with tips on a secret park that overlooked the city and also to sweet restaurant in the neighborhood. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast best of any place we stayed in Italy. We enjoyed our walk along the river into Rome.

For this review, I believe it's important to put it into context: Rome hotels/rooms are expensive, old and small. This is the nature of the economy and the architecture. So while in general I rate this hotel as average, I should note that for Rome hotels, it was pretty good. Rooms: small, but clean with large bathrooms. Comfortable bed. Breakfast... More

We stayed here for three nights and the staff was super helpful and friendly on all points. Breakfast had a lot of options, the rooms were clean, and there are a ton of restaurants and shops nearby. Walking distance from most major attractions.

This boutique hotel has nicely decorated small rooms (A bit small for the price, but large nicely painted bathroom!), nice breakfast area and a roof deck bar... More

The hotel is located in the Trastevere area of Rome which is more laid back and cheaper than the city centre. The hotel was clean and staff were friendly. Continental breakfast is provided and plentiful. Our room was a bit on the small side for two of us sharing but the beds were comfortable. Could have done with a full... More

I share the views of others who have reviewed this hotel. It has a really nice feel about it, comfortable, well designed rooms and friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast was delicious, fresh and lots of variety. Rooftop bar a nice extra. What we least liked was that the guest computer did not work while we stayed there, over a seven day... 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.
