What an amazing property a true Roman Villa! we stayed here on a 5 day break and loved the hotel. Although not in the nicest location across the River from the centre of Rome it is walking distance to the Pantheon. The hotel does operate a shuttle bus which we used several times. The facilities on offer are first rate... More

Great place in downtown Rome and perfect in summer season thanks to the beautiful garden and pool. Weak points? The gym is almost non existing and some details in the rooms but nothing relevant. Very close to vatican city and in the way to gianicolo, one of the best views of Rome

Very friendly, very helpful, very responsive to questions. The concierge even spent a ton of time making phone calls regarding a lost piece of luggage for... More

We were upgraded to a Premium Room which was much appreciated as we were there to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Our room was swish and the beds were very comfortable. it is in a good location close to the Vatican and a 15-20 minute walk to... More

Simply superb to have a pool and gardens all within walking distance of central Rome and Trastavere. Fabulous location. Great facilities. Definitely 5 star. Red level service a bonus but not a necessity. Restaurant a bit average. Spa service and staff very good. Will definitely return.

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location with a fabulous pool which is a real gem. It really is a gorgeous place to stay in the heart of Rome that provides a lovely respite from a hot day of sightseeing or shopping. However, I would say it is very expensive for what you get. So unless you plan... More

Interior: modern design meets Renaissance. Quiet, elegant, bright and airy, with large windows, glass paneling and white colour that dominates all areas. Our room was a decent size, contemporary decorated with a large-scale interpretations of Renaissance paintings, super tidy and clean, functional. We had a view of the Vatican City. Clarins products in the room bathroom and throughout the hotel.... More

This is a good solid hotel in a wonderful location. Close to the Vatican and close to the heart of the city and great dining. We chose one of the more premium rooms which was very spacious and had a nice view of a small courtyard. Traveling with a toddler meant a lot of room service and the food was... 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.
