We stayed at Hotel San Francesco for a week in August 2015.The hotel was easy to find; from the trainstation 'Trastevere' , you can take the bus line 8, that runs straight through Trastevere (the name of the main road in Trastevere is: Viale di Trastevere), and you just get off at P. Za. Bernardino da Feltre (5 min. from... More

Never having been to Rome before we weren't sure which area would be best to stay in. Needn't of been worried as we have found a gem. Both in the hotel and area. The hotel is small and perfect. Stylish and unpretentious. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was on the 4th floor and had dual aspect giving us... More

We enjoyed our 2 night stay here, paying less than 100 Euro a night and sleeping just outside the heart of Rome. Everything is in walking distance, 20 minutes to the Forum/Coliseum, 5 minutes to Trastevere, and 25 minutes to Via del Corso. The walk to the Vatican is probably 45 minutes but its easy. The tram on Viale di... More

This hotel ticked all the boxes for our recent stay in Rome. The staff were friendly and helpful - recommending restaurants, securing taxis and offering advice. Our rooms were comfortable despite the plus 30 degree heat and we particularly loved the roof top bar with its magnificent view of Rome. A quiet location but in walking distance of major attractions... More

Beautiful hotel with very good service. The air conditioning did not work in our room the first night so the management moved us to a new room the next day while we were out sightseeing. The hotel has a roof top bar which was a lot of fun. The bartender was very attentive and accommodating. The bar is open in... More

Couldn't have been more pleased with the hotel, especially for the price, which was incredibly reasonable. The English-speaking staff was knowledgeable and helpful; the rooftop bar had a beautiful view and was such a calm respite at the end of a busy day. The breakfast was wonderful and the location was perfect. Totally recommend!

Love this hotel! Check in was easy. Staff really helpful. Breakfast was really good. Roof terrace was lovely to sit on whilst watching the sun go down. Rooms are a bit on the small side but clean and modern. Location is great too.

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

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.
