Stayed here at the end of March 2014. Basically, it's a nice small hotel with easy access to the restaurants and bars of Trastevere. Friendly and helpful staff on reception, nice room with view over the rooftops. The bedroom furniture was perhaps a little tired but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom enormous and recently refurbished all spotless. Breakfast... More

I had my doubts about this hotel, having read some of the reviews, but I am glad I chose it. For the price we paid we couldn't have asked for more. The staff were very kind too, they helped us book our tickets for the Sixtine Chapel. It is true that the breakfast could be improved, specially the coffee, being... More

We stayed here for one night before we had to fly out, wished we had stayed a few more nights. Great location in old Rome. The location is a little off the beaten track but not far from all the restaurants, shopping, sights etc. The hotel is very well done. Our room was small but that is unimportant to us.... More

I stayed here a year ago...trastevere is breath taking. The rooms are small but nice and comfortable. The breakfast is really good. The location is kind of far from some places (like the vatican or piazza spagna) but the public transport, like tram and buses, can take you to almost any place. I think it's better to stay in nice... More

Excellent location in Trastevere. Quiet and inviting. Excellent value for money. Breakfast adequate but the rooms serve their purpose - comfortable and clean. Good reception and very helpful. Well recommended and interesting bars and restaurants can be found nearby.

We stayed May 2011. We couldn't have picked a better hotel to start our 2 week vacation. Kind staff, decent sized bathrooms as far as traveling it Italy goes. The bed was a little firm, but the roof top space more than made up for it. Great location....we loved staying in Trastevere! The breakfast was probably the best out of... More

In the Trastaverre neighborhood, which is safe and convenient to the Coliseum and other sites (20 min walk). Also a good selection of restaurants nearby and way cheaper than over the bridge in downtown area. Hotel clerks were very helpful with info.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Price was reasonable because we booked very early, probably about 8 months ahead of time. Out of curiosity, we checked the room price a month before we left and it had tripled in price!! The room was small, but very comfortable with small fridge, great wifi, and strong a/c. The front desk staff was very... More

We stayed for 4 nights as part of a family celebration. Definitely worth asking for rooms at the rear- better view, less noise. The roof terrace is a definite plus point. Rooms and bathrooms are fine for a hotel in this location in Rome. Within walking distance of Trastevere restaurants in the evening and Colosseum and Palatine Hill during the... More

We stayed at the Hotel San Francesco for a week. The staff was great, the rooms comfortable, the breakfast just fine, the price right, and the neighborhood quiet and interesting. It's a little further away from the historic center (close to the Porta Portese) than other neighborhoods I've stayed in in Trastevere, but only a 10 minute walk up the... More
