Located in Trastevere with all of its narrow cobbled lanes full of bars and restaurants. All of the major sights were in walking distance and it was lovely coming back to the area with its relaxing neighbourhood feel after a busy day to unwind. The hotel, tucked away in a quiet spot, was clean and the staff very friendy. I... More

Fabulous place we spent a night in while doing an all too short reconnaissance of the sites of Rome before we can come back and do it properly. Recently renovated and lots of attention to detail in the facilities and from the staff. I couldn't fault it. The online booking and self check in worked seamlessly. The staff were switched... More

Awesome hotel in the heart of the beautiful Trastevere. The location is prefect, it's close (few minutes walk) to the Tevere river in the city center. The Vatican and the Colosseum is approximately 15-20 minutes walk. It's nice and quiet, there isn't any busy traffic in the surroundings. Wonderful atmosphere in the room, comfortable, hosting and meal (breakfast) was really... More

As a family of four (including two 6ft teenage sons) we had a very enjoyable stay in this hotel. Not much to see from the outside, but has everything you need on the inside! The staff were very welcoming, and couldn't have been more helpful, despite remaining unobtrusive. Our quadruple room was very comfortable, had good air conditioning (which was... More

Small boutique hotel in Trastevere. Everything was just perfect. The beds are comfortable, the showers are very good with great water pressure. The breakfast is included and consists of fresh fruit, freshly baked pastries and bread, cooked eggs, cereals, juices and coffee made by a barrista! The staff are warm and inviting and will direct you wherever you want to... More

For the price, this was a nice place to stay. It was not the Ritz, but much nicer than many hotels I have paid much more to stay at! I would definitely stay here again if I wanted the Trastevere area, which was much more charming that the main city itself. LOCATION: Once we found the hotel, we liked the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Residenza Santa Maria for 3 nights. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated and the staff was very polite and friendly. Breakfast was included and very pleasant in the downstairs dining area. The location was also great. Surrounding the hotel is a very charming neighborhood with cobble-stone streets and filled with lovely restaurants... More

This small hotel is a hidden gem in Trastevere. It is quiet, well situated and has a helpful staff. Although Trastevere is a bit off the beaten path for the average tourist who wants to be closer to the major sites, we love the variety of restaurants and the quaintness of being in a "local" neighborhood. We will definitely stay... More

We stayed with our friends at Residenza for the second time and it was just as wonderful as the first time. Rooms are always spotless, breakfast is plentiful including delicious cappuccino and the location can't be beat. The staff - Husseen and Edeline - are so warm, friendly and helpful. If you want a quaint, charming place to stay with... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Residenza Santa Maria, is a small exclusive Hotel de charm, located I the heart of Rome, just a stone’s from the magnificent and picturesque square of Santa Maria in Trastevere. This boutique Hotel is the result of the skilful restoration of a 17th century building. The whole house is dominated by brick arches, wooden ceilings, artistic hand painted frescos and wall decorations which give to the Residenza Santa Maria an atmosphere of refined elegance. With only 6 rooms, the Residenza Santa Maria is somewhat smaller than its namesake which allows for even greater atmosphere, notwithstanding the fact that having only recently opened it is also equipped with high tech environment. The large and quite, no smoking, rooms, some of which family rooms, are fully equipped with private bathroom with tub and shower, A/C, telephone, mini-bar, safe, satellite flat panel TVs, free internet connection, boiler for tea/coffee and other amenities. In the breakfast room, once a Roman cistern of the II cen. BC, decorated by original ancient Roman artifacts found on site during restoration of the building, guests can enjoy a rich and delicious buffet breakfast, (scramble or boiled eggs, ham, cheese, salami, fresh bread, assortment of biscuits, cakes, fresh fruits, yogurt, fresh croissants, selection of fruit juices etc.). Thanks to great location, from the Hotel Residenza Santa Maria, guests can easily reach the main tourist sites like Campo de’ Fiori, Navona Square, the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi’s fountain, the Roman Forum and Coliseum with just a relaxing stroll through a maze of fascinating medieval streets. The Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Square are a few minutes away. Furthermore Trastevere, apart from the beauty of its mediaeval narrow little streets, is filled with typical restaurants, markets, pubs and cafés.The Residenza Santa Maria also offers services like transfer to and from the airport, private guided tours, laundry service, shiatsu massage, beauty centre, baby sitting service and car and scooter hire, as well as offering free use of bikes to its personal guests. ... more   less
