We stayed three days/nights in the cosy well-situated hotel apartment of this hotel. The street is lively and beautifully Roman, the building is grand and the accommodation very nice. As if we lived in Rome, close to major places, quaint like one likes when in Rome. We certainly recommend, only hoping that it will not be one do popular that...

We spent 3 nights here while sightseeing in Rome. As others have already mentioned, the hotel is located in an ideal location, a 15 minute walk to the Colosseum, and to Campo de Fiori. It was nice renewing friendships with the hotel staff whom we had gotten to know last year, Giovanna, Adelina and Christiana. And boy, did they make...

We weren't able to get a booking in the hotel so instead took an apartment also operated by the hotel. The apartment was in a lovely 15C building in the Jewish ghetto neighborhood which is centrally located in the city. The owner met us at the apartment and gave us much helpful advice about things to do and see. The...

We stayed in the apartment one door down from the main entrance for 5 of us and it was absolutely perfect! The place was comfortable, clean and spacious. Highly recommended hotel with lovely friendly staff. Out of all the areas we visited in Rome, Trastevere was the best location and Residenza Santa Maria was awesome!

Location of the hotel is very good, especially if you plan to spend some time in the Trastevere area. We stayed from Fri to Tue morning and had a room that had a lot of space for two persons. Friendly staff and such a good breakfast. Recommended!

The room was clean, more than adequate in size and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was continental but was more than enough to get us fuelled up for the day ahead. Location was just right as we could walk to all the tourist attractions quite comfortably. Definitely would stay here again

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Residenza San Calisto ( previously know Residenza Santa Maria), is a small exclusive Hotel de charme, 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 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 cafes.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
