Lovely stay in this hotel. Fantastic location close to all the major sites of Rome (we walked to all of them but then we love walking..). Hotel itself was rustic and simple as it is a converted seminary, and was spotlessly clean and maintained throughout our stay. Some may prefer a more luxurious style accommodation but I loved the rustic... More

We stayed for 1 week at this hotel and enjoyed it very much. The hotel is located on the quiet side of Trastevere, right next to an old and charming church - and only a 5 minute walk to the heart of Trastevere with all it has to offer of restaurants and bars. Our room was clean, the beds were... More

We were very happy with the hotel and will definitely stay again next time we visit Rome. From check in to check out, the staff were especially helpful and friendly. The location is also great. Public transport access is close by and there are many great attractions within easy walking distance.

What a nice hotel! Very pretty and clean! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room, which was on the third floor, was a nice size with a very large modern bathroom. Although the air conditioner was not as cool as we would have liked, keeping the bathroom door closed, kept the room comfortable. The breakfast room is very... More

We arrived jet-lagged and exhausted so were delighted to find the hotel staff were friendly and spoke English. Check in time was 2PM but they were able to let us into our room at just after 1PM. The room was small (as they are in older, historic buildings) but perfectly adequate, as was the huge ensuite bathroom with a generous... More

Travelled as 2 couples and stayed for 3 nights in May. Rooms extremely clean with comfortable beds/pillows & spacious bathrooms. Staff were exceptional-readily booked us taxis and made phone reservations at restaurants for us. Easy walk to all the main attractions, handy for the wonderful, numerous restaurants in Trastevere. Breakfast plentiful although nothing hot which seems to be the norm... More

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.

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.
