This hotel is in a fantastic location — about ten minutes walk from the heart of the old town with its charming streets, restaurants, the Pantheon etc, whilst only one minute from the river. (Which meant for a nice thirty minute walk to the Vatican, mostly along the river bank, the day we went there). There are also plenty of restaurants within only a few minutes walk and a co-op convenience store for top up stuff two or three doors away.

It's in a quiet street which means you aren't bothered by the noises of a busy city; nor did we feel unsafe walking around, even late at night (although sadly at our time of life that still often means back for eleven p.m.).

It really is an excellent location.

The staff were friendly, helpful and professional and the hotel was very clean. It's rated as a four star hotel, but as others have commented, it feels a bit tired in places (carpets, elevator etc). The rooms are on the small side, which is not unusual in the heart of one Europe's most popular cities (or New York for that matter), but the flip side is the excellent location.

Having read many of the reviews before we chose this I can see why people paying 300 a night grumbled, particularly if they're from the states and used to American standards and pricing (although of course that price just reflected supply and demand in one of the world's most visited cities for tourism), but for the 100 a night we paid in these quiet times, we thought it more than did the job and was fair.

That said, a reviewer a couple before us made a good point - wouldn't you have thought given everything so quiet at the moment, wouldn't the hotel move customers to their bigger rooms by way of complimentary upgrades? It would cost them nothing, yet be good marketing. Maybe they only have so many bigger rooms? Who knows?

Would we stay again? Absolutely, if the price was reasonable.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and was very impressed. My room was very clean and had a sizable bathroom. There was a safe in the room, a tv, and a refrigerator. The common areas were also clean and the rooftop view was a beautiful touch.

Breakfast was well provided. I had cereal, yogurt, prosciutto, cheese, various breads, eggs, and I didn't even try it all. The staff were helpful as were the doormen, and my items were carefully tucked away when I arrived before check in. I really enjoyed my stay.

The only downside is that their wifi was very slow for me. I had a difficult time using FaceTime and other apps.

The staff were amazing. They were friendly and spoke perfect English. One of there doormen would joke with me as I tried to speak Italian. We had the breakfast buffet include in our stay. This was not a typical budget buffet. Fresh fruits, meats, cheeses, as well as fresh pastries and a variety of breads. The attentive servers were nearby offering fresh brewed Italian coffees and fruit juices. Our room was beautiful and housekeeping again were attentive and efficient. The location made it very easy to walk to all of the major sites. This was my second time at the Hotel Ponte Sisto, and I cant wait to book for my next trip.

Stayed a week over Christmas with my family. We were all sad it didn't do the trick for us. Looks nicer, better in online photos. Everything is just a little shabby. Furniture in the lobby is worn, indoor public spaces are smaller than they appear on the website, breakfast room is a bit dorm style/institutional feeling. The breakfast that goes with it was adequate but not in any way remarkable. Actual guest room was a decent size and personally I far prefer the wood/laminate floor to carpet for cleanliness reasons. And the room was very clean so that is a huge plus. The bathroom was also clean but again a bit shabby around the edges. Grout needed a redo and the plastic shower surround was pretty tired ‘70s. Linnen on the bed was not super great and really hated the shiny polyester bed cover. Also personally hate any kind of throw or decorative pillows that don’t get cleaned between guests. The room did not bring joy but was adequate. All that said the staff was terrific. Some reviewers have complained of surliness but we had a good experience. Everyone was friendly and helpful (including in tracking down a lost bag). Our room key was an ongoing frustration. We were in a family room (two rooms, each with a key pad) and a single door opening into the hallway between the two rooms. There were particular instructions on how to use it. Despite our best efforts we kept needing togo to the desk for help. To their credit they were patient with us, but honestly, it is a messed up system if it needs that much assistance. We could walk everywhere which was great. In summary, I likely would not stay here again. With a bit of an investment this place could be great. It has nice bones. But for now it just didn’t bring joy.

This is a lovely hotel with a brilliant situation in the Centro Storico. Almost everything you are likely to want to see in Rome is within walking distance with the possible exception of Villa Borghese. Adjustments for Covid appear to be working well and a pre-ordered breakfast is served in the outdoor courtyard and choices can be amended at the time. The room was well equipped but very small. I would have thought that in these difficult times and with a hotel that was far from fully occupied that an uograde to a larger room would have been offered as an excellent piece of future marketing. So I would recommend this hotel in many ways except for this noticeable failure on their part.

This is our second two week stay at this agreeable good value hotel. There is a lot to like and a few things that could really be better. On the plus side it would be hard to find many hotels at this price point with comparable quality. Many four star hotels in Rome, depending on neighborhoods, could be 2-4 times more expensive. The location, just off the Ponte Sisto Bridge, is convenient and pleasant if slightly scruffy. The hotel has a lovely courtyard and rooftop garden. The "superior" rooms are fairly spacious, and half a block back from Via Pettinari pleasingly quiet.

As a large hotel, it gets its share of tour group and meeting business. The bellman, breakfast room and leaning staff are all friendly and will greet you with a genuine smile. As several other reviewers have noted, the reception staff are mostly poker faced and glum. They will answer when asked, but would be better suited for metro toll booths. On the other hand, I would rather they be neutral than put on the smiley faces expected in many Americn chain hotels.

The breakfast buffet is extensive and uneven. Nice to have some fresh fruit and cheese. as to the orange juice and cappucino, they have got the right colors, but they are not of great quality. There are Hero Jams (bravo) and supermarket standard pastries and breads. High marks for the scrambled eggs. Even though breakfast was included, we were happy to walk diagonally across the street to Mariani, a neighborhood cafe where you can get freshly squeezed orange juice (spremuta), decent pastries and a fine coffee of your choosing.

High marks for the linens and towels, miniature toiletries, comfortable bedding and plenty of hangars in the closets. As is often the case in Italian and Frrenh hotels lighting in 12 foot+ ceilings provides ideal conditions on the floor but moonlight at mirrors. Did anyone who designed these settings ever have to shave or put makeup on?

On the way home, I am mindful I will be paying twice as much for a lesser airport hotel. So, if you can time your visits to the breakfast room and bar when the tour groups are out following their umbrellas, you can pretend that they are pleased to have you here.

This was our 2nd time staying at the Pointe Sisto and once again it didn't disappoint.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
We had a standard double room which was spacious and had a small balcony. There was room service everyday.
The hotel has a lovely courtyard where breakfast was served and it has a roof top bar. The breakfast was great with lots of choice: yoghurt/ fresh fruit/ cereal/ selection of breads/ hams and cheeses/ sausage, bacon and scrambled eggs, etc.
It is perfectly located in Rome for all the attractions: approx. 20 mins walk to the Colloseum/ 10 mins to Piazza Novona/ 25 mins to the Vatican/ 25 mins to the Spanish Steps. Just cross the Pointe Sisto bridge beside the hotel and you are in the Trastevere area which is full of bars and restaurants and live music every night in the main Piazza.

Negatives:
Hard mattress which made it difficult to sleep.
Don't leave your table unattended in the courtyard at breakfast as there are lots of little birds about which will descend on your food.
The roof top terrace is lovely but the drinks are expensive. 10 euros for a glass of wine/ 8 euros for a small beer - when you can pay 5 euros for a large beer in a bar nearby.

Despite the negatives I would recommend this hotel and if in Rome again would definitely stay here.

Classic hotel next to Ponte Sisto in the heart of Rome. A former monastery, the 104-room Hotel Ponte Sisto boasts an impressive interior courtyard with towering palm trees and assorted garden furniture. It must be lovely to have breakfast here when it’s open. The hotel also has a large roof terrace that is open for drinks in the warmer months. A buffet breakfast is served in the dining room. Although it offers a plethora of pastries, breads, cereals, fruit, salad, cold cuts, & cheeses, the warm breakfast choices are limited to overcooked, tepid scrambled eggs, inedible mini sausages, and greasy, fatty bacon. Fruit juices, coffee, and tea are also served.
The decor throughout is quite dated. We stayed in the 1st floor Venere Suite. Although this room does not have a view, the big plus is its large, furnished private patio. The bed was comfortable although the mattress was a tad soft. The pillows and duvet were soft and fluffy. The marble heavy bathroom features a huge Jacuzzi tub with a handheld shower. It’s difficult to shower without getting the whole bathroom wet. The marble floor is also a slippery deathtrap. As the tub is a bit raised, it’s not only a tad difficult to get in but it’s also quite tricky and slippery, dangerous when getting out. There are no handrails in the bathroom so this is not a room that would be appropriate, or safe, for an elderly guest or a guest with mobility issues.
Overall, a pleasant stay in a very convenient location when visiting Rome’s principal sites.

Full disclosure - we are Marriott people. We try to stay at a Marriott or one of their Bonvoy partners every time, but this time we wanted to stay near Trastevere and, after many problems with other reservations, ending up snagging one of the last reservations at this hotel.

We were assigned room 224 and it was blissfully quiet. The hotel is an old monastery and walls are not thin as in current hotels. True, the decor is a bit dated but I found it to be quaint. Also, prepare yourself for a VERY firm mattress. This is not to say it is not comfortable, because it is of high quality. I slept very well.

The bathroom was spacious and all marble. There was a nice desk, small refrigerator with mini-bar and very large closet with a safe. The one thing I did not like was the giant closet doors, they were very heavy and hard for me to open.

Hint - you have to leave the key in the slot by the door after you enter the room or the lights turn off after about 2 minutes.

The courtyard and rooftop lounge were highlights for me. A beautiful buffet breakfast was served in the courtyard (weather permitting) and it was a peaceful, elegant start to the day. The rooftop bar is open evenings. We went up there when we arrived late from the airport and the bartender gave us some snacks so we didn't have to go seek out food.

The location is the best thing! Although if you call a ride shade, you have to meet them at the corner by the mini mart. We walked to everything. Trip advisor said over 450 restaurants within a third of a mile and it was true. Plus across the Ponte Sisto, which is right there, every evening there was street performers and more free
entertainment at the piazza across the bridge.

Some of the hotel staff seemed surly at times, but I think they were going for reserved. Many of them were friendly and all of them very professional. I was a little disappointed that no one wished us a happy anniversary, even though I noted on the reservation it was our 40th.

You are right in the middle and everything is within walking distance. Rooms in Rome are normally on the smaller side but this was actually fine. We had a room to the courtyard. The alley outside the hotel is the direct route from Trastevere to city center so I would guess rooms to this side can be noisy.There's a rooftop terrace which is nice in the summer time I guess. Breakfast is fine, better than the average italian hotel breakfast. The bar is not very interesting, you can of course get a drink but take it to the room instead of there. Price in December was very good and it seems ok for prices in the warmer part of the year. On our next trip to Rome we will definitely book this hotel again.
