Hotel Antico Borgo di Trastevere
Ranked #953 of 1,272 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed September 5, 2010

Although we booked this hotel while the site said there were four rooms available, they could not lodge us. Instead we were moved to a nearby hotel, called Hotel Domus Tiberina. The room in this hotel was ok for us, but I felt a littlebit cheated to. I do not like the feeling.
This way, any hotel bookable through bookings.com could expand the number of the rooms unlimitedly, and guests would end up in non-booked hotels. Often, their location is relevant to guests.
Their site should have said Antico Borgo Di Trastevere was full, and might recommend e.g. Hotel Domus Tiberina. That way I could have made my own choice. As it is with the former, the latter hotel is very noisy too. By the way, the showering cabin sliding doors allow for max 30 cm opening. Larger people cannot take a shower in room 21.

Stayed here one night. It was quite cramped and a little pokey, but perfectly comfortable, clean and staff were friendly. The breakfast was a bit rubbish (they gave us cereal, but no milk or bowls to eat it with/in), but it got the day started perfectly well. The building though is charming and you're in the heart of beautiful Trastevere which is a great base in Rome. Don't expect too much, but it's a perfectly good, ok priced place for a shortish stay.

This small and ancient hotel is in a corner of Trastevere- which was a great location, BUT
the room was minisucule, as was the shower. There were NO amenities ie towels were large clothes, no soap, no area within the hotel or in the room to sit. Trastevere is very noisy at night, so it is close to the center of a very lively night life but the hotel sits right on the street so forget about sleeping.Since it is an old hotel the walls are paper thin and one could hear what was going on in the rooms next door. The biggest complaint we had was how overpriced it was....also the included breakfast was terrible.
Don't believe what you read in Lonely Planet about this place.

Cute little hotel in Rome's best neighborhood. Perfect location in charming old building on a sidestreet without traffic. Altough, it is not for spoiled travellers who expect North American room standards, nor for kids.
Rooms are really small, as are bathrooms, but hotel is charming.

The hotel is in a very nice area but apart from that it has been a very disappointing experience. We went there with our 3 children. The bathroom (bathroom? just a toilet, a sink and a shower with no place even to have your beautycase at easy reach) is so small that you cannot move around (imagine with small children...) and the smell was disgusting. There is no phone, no fridge, they do not even sell you a bottle of water for the night . Breakfast is served in your room but there is no space for the tray and you end up having your breakfast on the bed. We asked for 2 nights in a row to have orange juice for breakfast and instead we had pineapple juice (which of course the kids did not like). When we asked why they said they did not have any. Service is awful, the staff is not friendly, definitely customer service is not their best. The price is too high for what you get. I would definitely not recommend it to a family with young children. When I complained I got 20 euro back per night, but I still think that we paid too much for what we got.

This is a charming little hotel in a great neighborhood, but it definitely has some downsides. First, it is not the easiest place to find as it is located in a small alley that is not marked on many maps of Rome. The directions provided on the hotel website were not particularly helpful. We ended up walking around (with all of our luggage) for quite some time before we found it.

The rooms are incredibly tiny for the price. We were initially put in the room right near the reception desk. The A/C did not work in this room. We complained about this for 2 days before they finally moved us to a room that had working A/C. Unfortunatley, the staff was neither helpful nor friendly about resolving this situation. In fact, we really didn't find that any of the staff members were friendly at all.

They tell you that breakfast is included, but you either have to go to a nearby hotel, or have it served in your room. You also have to ask about breakfast, as they did not volunteer this information to us. Our first morning, I asked where the breakfast room was. The woman at the front desk told me that they could bring coffee or juice to our room, but that was all. It wasn't until the second day that we found out about the nearby hotel option from a different front desk person.

All in all, not a bad place to stay. It's a bit overpriced for what you get. But the neighborhood makes up for it.

Location was excellent, but the cab driver had a hard time finding it. Rooms small but clean. Two of our party had rooms upstairs and they were much nicer than our ground floor room. Breakfast was adequate. delivered to the room. Neighborhood perfect. We were able to take the bus anywhere (like the vatican) or walk to the forum, or Campo di Fiore. The hotel reccomended a restaurant around the corner which was the best food and value of our entire month!
