In the very heart of Trastevere, location could not be better! Very small, only ground floor, only 6 rooms. Still, breakfast is varied and good. The place is cosy and with a personal atmosphere. 5 of the rooms face the back, one (nr 1) faces the street. This is a bigger room (triple), but there is some noise from the street at night even if it is located in one of these narrow streets. And since you are on the ground floor, you hear them quite well. Wifi works well in the reception room.

Room Tip: If you don't need 3 beds, ask for a more quiet room (not nr 1).

We stayed 2 nights at the Residenza Santa Maria, and loved it. It is tucked away on a quiet street, yet in the middle of action in Trastevere, and close to nice restaurants. We had a triple room, impeccably clean, with comfortable bedding, air conditioning worked great and it was quiet, breakfast was very good with scrambled eggs, prosciutto, cheese, yogurt, pastries, cereals, some fresh fruit and fabulous coffee.
Internet is available and free, but was slow in the room, worked better in the reception area where there is also a laptop with printer available for guests.
Staff is very friendly and helpful, and they can schedule a cab to get to the airport.
Location is also great, 20 mins walk to Vatican or Collisseum, 30 mins to Spanish steps, we walked everywhere without any problems.
Totally recommend this small hotel!

This quaint little hotel in the heart of Trastevere was just lovely. The staff were really warm & welcoming, our room had a rustic Italian charm about it & was so clean. The area was by far the place to be, you can see all the sights easily from here & on an evening there are so many lovely bars & restaurants to choose from. Perfect stay & we would defiantly return.

We have stayed in Trastevere before, and having found this place, we need look no further for future accommodations--this place is perfect! Beautifully kept, on a quiet street, but close to virtually everything; this is our new home away from home in Rome! So happy to have found this hotel!! Thank you for your hospitality. Oh, have to mention, we had a bathtub in the bathroom--what a delight after walking in Rome all day and a long train ride to get there....aahhhh...yes, definitely staying here again.

We know Rome well, having traveled there and lived there, and are very happy to have found the Santa Maria. It is more like having your own cozy and clean apartment to stay at, rather than an anonymous hotel. For us, tranquility, cleanliness and courtesy are paramount, and when you find all these at a convenient yet characteristic location (Trastevere is our favorite neighborhood) and a reasonable price, there is no contest. We will definitely make this our home away from home when in Rome. Giovanna and Adelina, with their smiling faces and kindness were a pleasure to greet in the morning, and make us want to return soon. Highly recommended!

Small friendly hotel ideally situated in Trastevere, near many bars and restaurants. We stayed in room no 1, which although on the ground floor, had no noise from outside if windows kept closed. Room was large, comfortable and always cleaned to a high standard and air con worked fine. WiFi reception was excellent as the router was directly outside the room. The only niggle with the bedroom is the lack of a mirror, the only mirror being in the bathroom which was an inconvenience when getting ready. Breakfast was good and the coffee was amazing. Lovely place to stay in Rome, with friendly helpful staff, highly recommended!

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.

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.

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
