“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

The hotel is an oasis in the middle of Rome. Very quiet and peaceful, in nice surroundings. Breakfast in the garden with orange-trees. Excellent service and cleaning.

This was the second time I stayed at Hotel Santa Maria. And probably not the last. Excellent value in a city with very expensive hotel rooms. Will definitely recommend to all our friends and look forward to returning on our next stay in Rome.

Location is fantastic, staff really excellent, rooms are comfortable, huge and very clean. Breakfast good enough, you can find scrambled eggs as well. From there, just walking 30 minutes you can reach all the important historical and interesting areas. In the evening you are in the heart of one of the best places in Rome. A lot of restaurants, pizzerie and bars. There you can really enjoy your "vacanza romana".

I worked hard to plan a family vacation to Rome, and am very glad we chose to stay at Hotel Residenza Santa Maria. It is in the Trastevere neighborhood, which is convenient to key areas from the Vatican to Ancient Rome, but is also in its own very lively and colorful neighborhood (great restaurants and sites just feet away!). The room itself was very comfortable for 4 people, and had a lot of local color. Perhaps most importantly, the staff was very welcoming and helpful to my family which had never taken a vacation like this, arrived exhausted, and wanted to do a lot in the few days we had. I highly recommend staying at this hotel!

Wonderful hotel a block off the main square in Trastevere. Great location near many good restaurants as well as public transportation to all areas in Rome.
The entire staff was very welcoming, rooms clean, great shower and delicious breakfasts.
Will be staying here again on our next trip to Rome

A beautiful little hotel in a quiet street just off the main square in Trastevere. The staff were charming, very helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Rooms were large and spotlessly clean. Would thoroughly recommend this little gem of a hotel without hesitation. You won't be disappointed.

Not only is this tucked away from the maddening pace of the Roman sites, it is close enough to enjoy it all on foot. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and the breakfast is outstanding. Cannot recommend this enough! You have to say here!

Great little hotel, in Trastevere. Very accommodating staff & we're had a most enjoyable stay. Excellent sleeping, I guess the very thick walls block out the sound. Excellent breakfasts. We were sad to leave.

The Residenza San Calisto ( previously know Residenza Santa Maria), is a small exclusive Hotel de charme, located I the heart of Rome, just a stone's from the magnificent and picturesque square of Santa Maria in Trastevere. This boutique Hotel is the result of the skilful restoration of a 17th century building. The whole house is dominated by brick arches, wooden ceilings, artistic hand painted frescos and wall decorations which give to the Residenza Santa Maria an atmosphere of refined elegance. With only 6 rooms, the Residenza Santa Maria is somewhat smaller than its namesake which allows for even greater atmosphere, notwithstanding the fact that having only recently opened it is also equipped with high tech environment. The large and quite, no smoking, rooms, some of which family rooms, are fully equipped with private bathroom with tub and shower, A/C, telephone, mini-bar, safe, satellite flat panel TVs, free internet connection, boiler for tea/coffee and other amenities. In the breakfast room, once a Roman cistern of the II cen. BC, decorated by original ancient Roman artifacts found on site during restoration of the building, guests can enjoy a rich and delicious buffet breakfast, (scramble or boiled eggs, ham, cheese, salami, fresh bread, assortment of biscuits, cakes, fresh fruits, yogurt, fresh croissants, selection of fruit juices etc.). Thanks to great location, from the Residenza Santa Maria, guests can easily reach the main tourist sites like Campo de' Fiori, Navona Square, the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi's fountain, the Roman Forum and Coliseum with just a relaxing stroll through a maze of fascinating medieval streets. The Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Square are a few minutes away. Furthermore Trastevere, apart from the beauty of its mediaeval narrow little streets, is filled with typical restaurants, markets, pubs and cafes.The Residenza Santa Maria also offers services like transfer to and from the airport, private guided tours, laundry service, shiatsu massage, beauty centre, baby sitting service and car and scooter hire, as well as offering free use of bikes to its personal guests. ... more   less
