The Hotel is in the Best position , in the heart of Trastevere, close to a lot of typical roman restaurants and it's near 10 minutes walking to Vatican City, too, but all of this the hotel is very quiet and peaceful. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast is excellent.

We travelled around Italy for a family vacation and found by chance this hotel, an ex convent near a trastevere. We had a awful experience at another hotel and checked out early. We called this hotel and got simply excellent service, attitude and reception. A hotel with excellently trained staff, able to solve problems, be flexible accommodating and yet professional. The whole experience upgraded our confidence 10 fold. Then we got into the rooms and they are fantastic, well equipped, clean, quiet and frankly charming. Attached to the hotel is a chapel and I think a few nuns are still living on the premises ( retired) . It all added to the atmosphere. There is no restaurant at the hotel but its 20-50 meters away from one of the best restaurant areas in Rome. There is however an excellent breakfast service and whether inside or in the courtyard garden it's is truly fantastic.
This is a super location, a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle and very good quality and service.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel, albeit a winding walk from reception, are very quiet- it also le...

Of all the places we stayed in Italy, this was our least favorite. It was fine, but not worth the price.

Location is good (not great) and the building is pretty cool, but the rooms and decor were tired and worn. Staff was not particularly friendly -- not rude, but not welcoming like other places.

WiFi only in the lobby was a drag. The air conditioning was off and our room was 75-80 degrees. The window blinds did not open to allow more air circulation and it was extremely noisy to have the windows open on a Saturday night. With so much happening in the area, that meant a lot of street noise until around 4:00AM.

We really liked the area -- a change of pace for our last night in Italy from our first hotel near the Campo di Fiori -- but were underwhelmed here.

This is a very well located hotel in the Travestere district. It has a central garden which in Summer is a delight for breakfast which is ample and good. If you get the right room, and I saw those of my colleagues which were good sized and well appointed, then this is a great hotel but if you have the misfortune to be in Room 315, you will not have such a great stay. It was on the fourth floor, was incredibly tiny and gloomy with a tatty wardrobe, a TV that didn't work and most irritating of all, absolutely zero space in the shower room to put anything. They must be aware of this because it had obviously been a struggle even to put out the complimentary toiletries which were jostling precariously behind the basin taps, occupying the only free space there was. The hotel could put this right with a couple of glass shelves. And for a business traveller, a big problem - no table or desk that you could work at. But even with a room that was frankly well below par, this is still a hotel that I would recommend for its ambiance and location.

Room Tip: Avoid the small rooms on the top floor, especially 315

We stayed at the Donna Camilla Savelli for one night in September. It was on our tour so that may explain why we didn't feel it was exceptional as they probably save the best rooms for individuals. We were in room #313 on the 4th floor. It looked out onto nothing. The bathroom was nice and large though and clean. The hotel is a long walk from St. Peter's Basilica. We had been in Rome 5 nights before this near Termini and had walked everywhere except Vatican City (where we took the metro to get to) so knew where we wanted to walk. It was a nice area to walk in, down tiny side streets with old cobblestones and very scenic although walking is difficult. You do need comfortable footwear to navigate the streets.We walked back to the Piazza Navona and Campo di Fiori for gelato so it is walkable, just a lot of walking. The hotel's history as a former convent makes it interesting, not just a plain city hotel. Breakfast selection was large although the scrambled eggs and bacon could have been cooked more thoroughly for my taste. There was a good variety of cheeses also.

This is a lovely hotel; a calm and peaceful haven - so hard to find in busy Rome! The location is great, in Trastevere, with lots of eateries in the area but close enough to walk to the Vatican, Colosseum and old town.

I would have rated the hotel higher but for a couple of niggles. There is no restaurant in the hotel (not necessarily a problem as we enjoyed eating out) but it would have been nice to have tea and coffee making facilities in our room.

Secondly, the room was very hot and uncomfortable, ranging from 25 to 28 degrees (even though it was the first weekend in November). We phoned for assistance and one staff member fiddled with the air conditioning, reassuring us that it would cool soon, but it didn't. The receptionist later told us that the air conditioning was switched off as it was 'winter.' There was a cool breeze when we opened the window but, being a ground floor room, we couldn't keep the window open all night.

That said, there is much to recommend this hotel. It's grand breakfast room, terrace and garden and elegant but simple decor were lovely.

Room Tip: Try to avoid room 606 (or any rooms on the ground floor) if possible
