Casa Di Santa Francesca Romana
Ranked #163 of 1,148 Specialty Lodging in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 24, 2012

When I lived in Rome, this is where my Mother would stay sometimes when she wanted to get away from the madness of our young kids. It's in Trastevere, my old neighborhood, and it's a great, great find. It's safe, clean, well managed and has a nice garden.

I want to make clear that it is very basic. Small rooms, no frills, no big TVs etc. But if you're in Rome, you are not going to be spending much time in a hotel room. You just want something that is clean and quiet at the end of the day. I highly recommend this place. It's a nice little island in the midst of Roman madness.

This place is located on the other side of the Tiber River, in Trastevere. It is far away from the busy city of Rome which has its advantages. The food in this area is decent, authentic (not tourist-like) and less expensive. There are many bars where you can enjoy some great coffee. It is walkable to the main sights and close to different forms of transport - buses and trams. The rooms are spacious and clean. They have hair dryers in the bathrooms (room 237 and 236). I spent about 3 weeks in this place have no real complaints. The staff are nice and friendly. The only downside is that the wi-fi is only available in the lobby.

We found this hotel to be an excellent retreat after each day of exploring Rome.
The pleasant staff, the quiet courtyard, breakfast and being surrounded by serenity all make this a perfect place to rest.
It is central to all of Romes sights whether you explore by foot or public transport.
We would certainly stay here again when we are back in Rome.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard.

Only spent two nights here at the start of our Italy trip and could easily spent more time in this lovely hotel. Simple, but clean and in an excellent location. Charming area with lots of interesting places to eat. Wonderful breakfast buffet w/ yogurt, cereals, fruit,meats,cheese,bread,pastries and excellent coffee (expresso or reg). Ate dinner diagonally across and up the street at a tiny restaurant with 4 outdoor tables, which were filled. We ate inside and had delicious pasta.

Room Tip: Check the a/c right away. We had to change rooms because it didn't work and Rome was very hot w...

Travelled with 3 girlfriends, having been to Rome a dozen times. This hotel is clean, very comfortable, and the breakfast is generous. The place is very well kept with the original furniture and artefacts. Rooms are simple but comfortable. Staff was very nice. Location is perfect, walking distance to all of Trastevere, one of Rome's best areas, near Campo dei fiori, Piazza Navona... you can even walk to St-Peters! Would go back.

We stayed two nights at this convent, and it was just perfect. The location in Trastevere is ideal! Hard to find better!

The breakfast are just fine, the place is very clean and the rooms are plenty big. Nothing fancy, but the value is perfect.
