Reviewed January 5, 2013

It was our first trip to Rome, I found the hotel through Trip Advisor. LOVED it! It is so cute, only 6 rooms. Ours was the perfect size, very comfortable, clean and with a lovely bathroom and killer shower! After touring Rome for 4 days, I was actually so happy that the hotel was located in Trastevere...it was such a cute little city just across the bridge with tiny cobblestone streets, great restaurants and shops all within walking distance. We actually chose to eat dinner every night here instead of in the city. It is an easy and nice walk to most of the tourist sites. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast was perfect...including the 'made to order' cappucinos! I look forward to staying here again next time I visit Rome...can't imagine staying anywhere else!

it's a very cozy hotel. you would feel like at home!
hotel is very small, but it is only better. the place is just wonderful. in a Trastevere district, with lots of bars around. but the hotel is located at a very silent street. however just few seconds away from the main streets with bars and etc. also just 10-15 min from Colloseo, Vatican ....
the stuff is really good . always ready to help.
few words about breakfast. the capucino at the hotel's bar is just wonderful. the same about meal. breakfast is really good.
i always stay in Residenza. it was my 3 time. and i am sure - not the last one :)

We just spent 5 days in Rome touring the sights. Found this hotel on the web, and for once everything was as advertised. The hotel is very small - about 5 rooms, but there usually is staff on site, and if not, a phone call away. The hotel consists of two nicely restored 13th-century buildings with a small courtyard in the middle. Room was smallish but well appointed and comfortable, including well-appointed bathroom. Mattress was a bit too soft for our comfort - our only quibble really. The staff is extraordinarily helpful without being intrusive, and are happy to also give you recommendations regarding visiting the sights. The breakfast is excellent and served in a medieval basement with vaulted ceiling. Location is great: in Trastevere, a neighbourhood of narrow streets full of restaurants and pubs, across the Tiber from the center of the city, very near the Jewish Ghetto area and the Tiber island. We walked from the hotel to the Roman forum and Coliseum (about 20 min), Jewish quarter (10 min), and even the Vatican (less than 30 min). Otherwise, a tramway and bus station (Belli) is at a 3-4 min walk from the hotel. All in all we highly recommend this hotel as the perfect place from which to explore Rome. Would definitely book there again if returning to the eternal city.

Each time I visit Rome, I stay in the Residenza Santa Maria. It is impossible to find a more comfortable and home-like place with caring staff members who go out of their way to take care of your every need without bothering you. This was my third time and I loved every minute of it. Because the Residenza is small and tucked out of the way a little, it feels like you're going home every day when you return. Its proximity to some of the very best Trastevere restaurants and enotecas is a definite plus. If you are looking for a "home away from home," where no one will hassle you, the Residenza Santa Maria is THE place in Rome to stay. Public transportation is quite convenient, as is shopping, walking to the Vatican and other historic places, and local sightseeing. I guarantee you'll love it--and miss it when you're gone.

Room Tip: Room #1, right off the lobby, is handy.

Just returned from a 3 night stay here. The hotel is in a fabulous location - lots of great bars and restaurants close by and in walking distance of all the sites. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful.

Well, it was only two nights, but we - .y wife and I - had at wonderful weekend, and Residenza Santa Maria proved to be absolutely excellent. Small and cozy without many facilities, but quiet and clean, with a very good breakfast, and in a location as taken from a Fellini film from 1957.
Oh, and bicycles free of charge. We did the streets of Rome by bicycle and lived to tell ;-)
Very nice indeed.

The room and building was well cared for and attractive. Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast was one the nicest we had anywhere. Location is less than 10 minute walk from main sites down-town and the local area is quiet, colorful and friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to lobby have better internet connection
