The hotel is right there near the bridge and we found the hotel to be everything that we had read in the reviews. During our stay in Rome we actually stayed there twice. The second time we had a wonderful room with a jacuzzi tub. The staff was friendly. The rooms were clean and there was a quaint courtyard to retire in the afternoon. The hotel is on the edge of the touristy spots so it is a little quieter yet a short walk to some of the major attractions. Dining was perfect across the bridge where the crowds were much less.

The hotel is located in a central area, with clean rooms and a decent buffet breakfast in the morning. We rented three rooms during our stay. Two were more on the inside of the hotel rm 322 & 321, the other room was street side rm 326. If you like sleeping NEVER,NEVER stay on street side. For the first two nights you lay in bed listening to the bar across the street til 4am. Unfortunately the hotel knows about this and never bother to mention it to us on check in. After the first night, we asked to change rooms , but they told us they where booked solid. Not till after the second night of people yelling and screaming like hey were in the room with you till 4am again did we get customer service and changed rooms.

Overall the hotel was clean, rooms decent size, but if your looking for customer service look else where.

Room Tip: Not street side

Stayed 4 nights at this great hotel. Our junior suite was spacious, comfortable, and felt new. The balcony had potted citrus trees (with lots of limes!) and a small table and chairs. The hotel roof deck - something they don't talk much about - is INCREDIBLE. Skytop view of Rome and assorted basilicas. The breakfast was top notch. The location - a short walk to the Trastevere across the bridge and the Campo de Fiore around the corner made wandering Rome easy.

I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was friendly (all speak English) and very helpful.

Room Tip: I highly recommend a room with a court yard view (quieter) and if you can do the Junior Suite - its...

Stayed for 3 nights and loved this hotel. The room was spacious, modern and had a real quality feel to it.

The internal courtyard was great to flop in after the madness of Rome, the breakfast was spot on and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Worth paying a bit extra for the superior room as it was quieter and had a decent view. Really can't fault the place.

The location is also worth a mention as it is so central. During the day you can get to all the usual attractions on foot in no time at all, and in the evening its only a few yards over the bridge to get the quieter bars and resaurants in Trastevere.

Room Tip: quieter out the back

I was nervous about our stay here because, never having been to Rome before, I was worried that it was a bit too far away from the sights. How wrong I was! The location is excellent. The first night of our three night stay I wanted to walk around and try to "calculate" how much walking we would need to do or if we would need to rely on buses. We reached Campo dei Fiori in less than 5 minutes, Piazza Navona and the Pantheon under 10 and the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps were about 15-20 minutes away. We only took a bus once to the Vatican and the bus stop was just down the street from the hotel. Couldn't have been easier.

The staff was nice, didn't have a ton of interaction with them however. Breakfast was the best of all 5 hotels during our 2 week stay in Italy. The room and bathroom were the largest as well. Wish there had been wifi in the room, but even that wasn't a big deal.

One complaint? The shower door! It was one of those half doors but it leaked water all over the bathroom floor. Not fun to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and wade through a swamp then get back in bed. Small problem and easy to overlook in the grand scheme of things.

I would definitely stay here again. Just bring your wellies ;)

Since my boyfriend and I are in our mid-twenties, we wanted to stay somewhere affordable, safe, clean, boutique-like, and also close to fun local bars and non-tourist restaurants. We stumbled upon Hotel Ponte Sisto after much research and based on the TA ratings, decided to book at less than $200/night (last week of Aug '12). We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

The rooms were clean, bathrooms were updated, and all the windows had beautiful shutters. The hotel staff was extremely helpful in providing directions to landmarks. Luckily for us, we were able to walk to Roman Forum, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Vatican in less than 20 minutes. Even better, we were a 5 minute walk away from Campo de' Fiori to the northwest (great restaurants and awesome farmers market on the weekends) and a 2 minute walk from Trestavere (West Village meets Lower East Side...small restaurants, lots of gelato and beer, young people everywhere at night) to the southwest over the Ponte Sisto pedestrian bridge. We were able to enjoy every minute knowing we could head back to the hotel, in the peace and quiet, and out of the tourist craziness.

FYI - Free WiFi in lobby and garden area. Breakfast was plentiful and no shortage of prosciutto, cheese, and bread! Great market next door for bottled waters, snacks, and wine.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the courtyard!

I thought this was going to be my favorite hotel of 5 I stayed in as it was nicer and more recently upgraded than some of our other hotels. That all came to a screeching halt when from about 2AM until 4AM I thought my window was open due to the partying going on below. Turns out the windows are paper thin and there is a bar right below the rooms.

My original request to move wasn't going to happen as the front desk guy tried to pass it on to the next shift. We were able to work things out just fine. Close to the river and walking distance to many of the have to see sights.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room
