“1st Time in Rome”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Just returned from a five night stay in this hotel. Would agree with all of the positive reviews I read prior to my visit. This hotel has to be one of the best I have stayed in anywhere in Europe or America. Centrally located close to the main restaurant area and within walking distance of all the main attractions. Over the five day period the only transport we used was to travel to the "Santa Sebastiano catacombe" on the 118 bus.

Would recommend that you avail of the pick up from and to the airport at €55 each way if not familiar with city.

Breakfast in the hotel excellent and we enjoyed the "happy hour" on our return each evening. The room we had (No.10) was spacious and clean and we enjoyed five peaceful nights with only the occasional noise from seagulls on the adjacent roofs to disturb us.

Just spent 3 nights at the Hotel Santa Maria in Trastevere, Rome, with our 8yr old. We stayed in the Mansard Suite which is perfect for a small family - in number and height! We found it very comfortable and private. Can't praise the hotel enough. This was my 3rd time in Rome and easily the best. The staff are very friendly and obliging and the hotel is like a little haven. Trastevere is a great location with lots of bars and restaurants in easy walking distance from the hotel. We just loved every minute.

This hotel is truly amazing and the setting is stunning.
Down a small lane it has the upmost privacy.
In this beautiful part of Rome within easy walking distance of everything that you wish to see.
The staff are fantastic they simply cannot do enough for you.
The rooms are immaculate and perfectly clean and the atmosphere is one of complete relaxation.
We were treated like old friends.
You can see the love and attention that has gone into one of the best hotels I have ever stayed it.
20 rooms round the beautiful courtyard you simply cannot fail to relax.
We will definitely return.

My wife and I have just returned from a trip to Rome and stayed at the Santa Maria Hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Adviser. The location was great and the hotel itself was just lovely. It was quiet, pretty and unlike any hotel I've stayed at before. What made it special though was the service which was as good as anywhere either of us have received at any other hotel anywhere! The day we arrived it was my wife's birthday and after spotting this on her passport the staff went to great lengths it seemed to ensure all of the staff were aware of this. Everybody seemed to be wishing her Happy Birthday and we were given a free bottle of Prosecco along with the free buffet that this hotel offers to it's guests on a daily basis if you order a drink at the bar. It's little touches like this which make it special and will ensure we return here the next time we go to Rome.

My family of 4 has stayed at Hotel Santa Maria before. We loved it so much, we came back again.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. The front desk is amazingly helpful. The breakfast is wonderful. The Hotel grounds are beautiful. Best of all is the quiet. We have stayed in other Rome hotels are were up all night with the city noise. But I've saved the best for last. Santa Maria is located in the best part of Rome. Trastevere. Great restaurants everywhere. Great for walking. Great for people watching. All this, and a short walk to all the best sites in Rome. There is no better way to stay in Rome.

my son and i stayed at the hotel and enjoyed the location being surrounded by great restaurants and bars to chill out in. the rooms are very comfortable and the service was impeccable and friendly. The courtyard with the orange trees are just gorgeous and acts as a great retreat from the outside world. The staff recommended some great places to eat and drink in the neighbourhood.
a very good experience and we would go back.
