Loved this little hotel! Nice, spacious clean rooms, huge bathrooms, helpful and friendly staff (the maid folded my kids nightclothes and left them on their pillows every day! Not kidding) comfortable beds and good towels. A little off the beaten path but we taxied and walked to the sights no problem. Breakfast very good, especially the delicious blood orange juice...

We stayed here for a three day break at the end of July 2014. On the down side, rooms are not huge. On the upside, everything else. Location is fantastic (no more than a 25 minute walk from central attractions, tram if you're a little less mobile), room itself nice, staff incredibly helpful (I really cannot state that point enough)...

Hotel San Francesco is a well-priced gem in Trastevere. This is a delightful part of Rome, full of character, less touristy than other parts and with lots of small shops and restaurants. It is a short walk to the Tiber to the Lungo di Tevere festival which is on in the summer. Here lots of inexpensive pop- up food places... More

Six of us (3 couples) spent 3 nights at Hotel San Francesco in Trastevere. We loved it. It was clean and the staff was courteous and helpful.They have a great rooftop bar area which was great for just relaxing after a full day/evening, having a night-cap, and reviewing the day. It's a little off the beaten path, but still conveniently... More

We stayed three nights here and walked all over Rome from its location.The staff organized a driver to pick us up from the airport (which was key when arriving at 9:30 at night after traveling over 24 hours), gave us excellent dinner recommendations, and was always friendly and helpful. Giordano, the bartender up on the lovely terrace, was very accommodating... More

We spent here nights here and liked it very much. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the bathroom was very clean. The staff was freindly and helpful. The rooftop terrace was delightful. Breakfast was good. The AC was a bit weak but not bad. Also the location was great once we figured out the bus system. I... More

I spent 2 night here in early July 2014. The rooms are small but equipped. Free WiFi was a plus. The roof terrace is spectacular with a refreshing breeze blowing even on the hottest days. The bar is open at 6PM with a wonderful bartender, Giordano, who was friendly, knowledgeable but not overbearing. You can sit up there anytime of... More

We stayed here for our last 2 nights in Italy. The location is very convenient for getting to all of the sights and Trastevere is full of great places to eat and drink. Our room was on the third floor with a walk-in shower, it clean and had a great view. The staff at the hotel were also very attentive,... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights here. This was our second visit, being there about 6 years ago. I was shocked about how the rooms were in disarray. We had booked one of the rooms in the back, so there were no noise issue. When we checked in, we asked if we could upgrade but we were told... More

The location is the best thing about the hotel. We walked to almost all the places in Central Rome we wanted to see. Only the Vatican was too far to walk (although we did walk back to our hotel because we couldn't figure out where the bus stop was for the route going in reverse). As has been stated by... More
