Amazing little hotel with a beautiful courtyard of orange and lemon trees. A Little house was given to us. The only bad thing, my partner is 6ft4 and the ceilings were too low for him and he ended up bending over and hunching the whole time! Not great when you hit your head in the middle of the night too!BUT...

Stayed for an extended weekend and couldn't believe how relaxing the place was. Ideal base for walking to all sites and reception staff give you a map with approximate time to get to them. Room spotlessly clean as was rest of hotel. The courtyard is stunning in the sunlight and the evening buffet is a must !

This is the second time I stayed at Hotel Santa Maria. Both times my stay has been great. Right in the heart of Trastevere, this is a great location. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and capuccinos are great. A big bonus for me has been free use of their bicycles - that's how I've gotten around...

Lovely to be in the inasanity of a tight maze of pedestrian streets full of restaurants and action until very late , but off in the quiet of a super charming private courtyard. Very friendly staff, breakfast perfect, room perfectly comfortable but a little cool in its styling.

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it ! Rooms were spacious and immaculately clean , very friendly helpful staff who are more than willing to assist. Buffet breakfast was good but exactly the same every day. The hotel grounds are beautiful I imagine in the summer would be even better sitting under the gorgeous orange trees. We thoroughly...

From walking thru the gate and seeing the lemon trees to the patio area covered in orange trees. Very quiet and quaint . Rooms are clean and larger than I expected ....

It was an amazing trip to Rome and Hotel Santa Maria was central to our experience. The hotel had been a 16th century Convent and the history and design of the hotel also added to its charm. The hotel staff were helpful, warm and courteous. Rooms are specious, very clean, quite good with comfortable mattresses, fresh flowers placed in rooms,...

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
