Hotel San Francesco

Certificate of Excellence
Hotel San Francesco is a small & charming 3 star hotel located in Trastevere, the hippest and most lively area in the center of Rome. 24 rooms all set with Private Bathroom, Free WiFi, Minibar, Flat TV, Hairdryer, Telephone, Safe Box and Air Conditioning. One of the best Buffet Breakfast of Rome is served from 7:30 to 10:00 and the reception is open 24h. An amazing 360° view overlooking the Aventino hill and Trastevere is waiting for you at the top of the hotel. Our Rooftop bar La Terrazza will be open on warm seasons from 6 PM to 11:30 PM. An oasis of peace and relaxation where you can have a refreshing drink and chill out after a day sightseeing. All major tourist sights such as the Colosseum, the Vatican and Trevi Fountain can be easily reached by public transports but our suggestion is to wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the city by walking through the ancient narrow streets.

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.

A quiet place, with all touristic sites well within walking distance, on a very quiet street. There is a Carrefour 100 meters away and it's a 15 minute walk to Trastevere train station. Very nice restaurants in the vicinity.

Great location. Uncharacteristically quiet... We really enjoyed the quiet. Nice, clean room for the price. Very friendly staff. Great value. We would definitely return here on our next (5th) trip to Trastevere.

Hi, is your hotel handicap accessible? Are the bathrooms accessible?
Cannot remember exactly. Steps to enter the hotel. The roof terrace was only accessible by staircase. The room and bathroom we had were rather small. Not easy to manoeuvre in. But maybe large rooms/bathrooms available. However much I loved the hotel, I would not specifically recommend it for handicapped persons.

Someone had written about the hotal having transportation to and from the airport How do we find out about this ? Thank you
As the above answer indicates, talk to the hotel staff at Hotel San Francesco. We usually arrive by train from Naples, take a taxi from Termini train station and stay in Rome for a few nights before flying out. Upon arrival at the hotel we immediately make a reservation for a shuttle to the airport. The transportation available is a private shuttle service, 50 euros one way to Fiumicino Airport. Depending how many in your party, a driver arrives with a suitable size vehicle. The drivers are great, and know all the shortcuts to the airport. Be sure to add a little tip.

"Check the noise from roof top bar...maybe a room on another floor besides the fourth."
"Rooms away from the street."
"Our room was much much smaller then It appeared based on website pictures"
"the breakfast option is worth it"
"Our room faced the street but was quiet with the windows closed. The back roomsface an enclosed garden which is a nicer view."
$81 - $202 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
