Hotel Donna Camilla Savelli is a good base for anyone who wants to stay in the bustling, happening Trastevere area in Rome. It's good and close to numerous restaurants, cafes, shops and bars, but it also maintains a unique aura of tranquility and quiet: this probably stems from its years as a monastery. In fact, you might see a nun or two wandering around during your visit - it seems a few of them still live there.
Our room was a decent size for continental Europe with a firm bed and good amenities: a hair dryer, nice toiletries and tissues, plus fluffy bathrobes and slippers. The bathroom was on the large size and very modern and up to date, with a lovely big tub. My only caveat about the room is that the one we were in was quite dark and didn't get much natural light. But honestly don't expect to spend much time in Rome in your hotel room - there's too much to do out there!
The hotel had a very good buffet breakfast which you could take in the courtyard garden if desired. Otherwise, the breakfast is taken along the elegant Roman corridor, which features impressive frescos over the door frames. Breakfast was a good selection of hot food, cheeses, fruit, bread and juice. Unfortunately there is no dinner service but you can order drinks in the evening to have in the corridor or the courtyard. The wireless in the corridor was pretty good as well - but it doesn't work in the rooms themselves.
Don't miss going up to the roof terrace to see the views over the Trastevere and beyond, and if you get the chance have a wander: there are a few architectural delights here, such as the gorgeous marble staircase - all designed by Francesco Borromini, one of Rome's renaissance architects of note.
If you want to eat nearby there are lots of good restaurants, including Isole di Sicilia just a few steps down on the Via Garibaldi for excellent Sicilian food, and Dar Poeta, just a bit further into the Trastevere for some seriously rustic and delicious pizza. Oh, and you'll find Gelataria La Scala just a few steps away at the interchange of Via Garibaldi and Via Della Scala for some good gelato and granita.
