I stayed at Hotel Santa Maria only for two nights, but had a very good impression.
The hotel is well situated in a side street of the Piazza Santa Maria , the heart of the Trastevere neighbourhood.
The location is convenient to explore Rome by foot and (in my opinion) has the added bonus of being in a very pleasant area , especially during the day, where the streets are calm in comparison to the historic center of the city.
Many restaurants and bars nearby. In the weekends, during the night, It might get annoying because of young people and turists getting drunk , but the hotel is well protected from the noise.
One thing that I like is the fact that all rooms are at ground level, facing a courtyard with orange trees. I noticed some bycicles for rent, which was a nice touch too.
The room (triple) had a good size, a flower themed decoration and an excellent bathroom, with a bathtub and a real shower.
Breakfast was nice but can be improved with more organic choices, specially regarding cereals.
Overall , Hotel Santa Maria is a fine option in Rome .
