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

Nice hotel with walking distance to many of the nice spots in Rome, including the lovely streets and piazzas in Trastevere. Our room was rather small and definitely inefficiently soundproof, and we could hear a lot more than we wanted to hear from the adjacent rooms. The breakfast room was rather crowded and one morning we had to eat our... More

I went there on business for two nights. The rooms are fine with free wifi. They are former monk bedrooms so a bit Spartan but ok for me. Bathroom fairly large, clean, good bed. Common grounds are very nice and cosy, they try to create some vintage atmosphere. The breakfast is in a vaulted room, the choice of food is... More

Big shoutout to Giordano! The best part about this hotel was the rooftop bar. My wife and I were made to feel very welcomed. The room could use some TLC though. However, the hotel is in a great location, and we wish we had more nights to enjoy in Rome.
