My husband and I stayed here for 4 days in 2009 for a long weekend, and we were enchanted. The ambiance, courtyard, service and location made for a perfect stay, plus the available complimentary bikes made sightseeing a different kind of thrill...(much better than traipsing in the hot sun). This time we took our 3 teenage kids (ages 11, 14...

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Hotel Santa Maria. It was definitely our favorite place to stay in Italy. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We just loved the afternoon snacks and wine. The bartenders in the dining room were very pleasant and helpful. We just loved the little oasis in the central courtyard with the beautiful...

We had 2 rooms, one for our 3 children and the other for my husband and me. It was comfortable, clean, and cool in hot June. The breakfast was lovely every morning and we could eat it out in the courtyard which is ringed with orange trees. We loved being in Trastevere where we found great restaurants, and shops, and...

We capped off our vacation in Italy with a 3 night stay at the Hotel Santa Maria. Our room was immaculately clean with all the basics and the bonus of great Wi-Fi (to the relief of my son who had to put up with spotty internet connections in the other 3 hotels we stayed in during our trip to Italy)....

This was one of our favorite hotels during our 2 week vacation to Italy. Breakfast under the orange trees made for a perfect start to our mornings. It was nicely maintained and the staff really cared about the details- breakfast and appetizers were great, the room was clean, the grounds beautiful. If I return to Rome, I will be sure...

I stayed at the Hotel Santa Maria for 5 nights in January. I typically stay at its' sister hotel, Residenza Santa Maria, however that was not available for the nights I needed, so I was booked here instead. I was not disappointed. The hotel is tucked away on a quiet street just off of Piazza Santa Maria. The hotel is...

Many of us will have memories of Italian city hotels – basic, noisy, sole less with indifferent service and equally indifferent breakfasts. Hotel Santa Maria definitely does not fit into this category. Situated a few minutes walk from the bustling main square in frenetic Trastevere, large iron gates open on to another world. Peaceful, quiet and in beautifully cared for...

A peaceful haven amongst the busy-ness of Rome. Lovely breakfasts in the shade under orange trees before venturing out into the city - only 15 - 20 minutes walk to most of the classical sites. Then enjoy a campari & soda from the bar before re-entry into the buzz for dinner - around the corner is Trattoria da Augusto for...

We stayed in the Hotel Santa Maria for two nights at the end of two weeks in Italy. The Santa Maria really is an oasis, with around 20 rooms facing into lovely courtyards. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was small but comfortable. The breakfast (included in the price) was nothing exceptional but quite adequate. This is an...

We stayed in June for 4 days at the Hotel Santa Maria and we enjoyed it very much. The hotel is an oasis in the very lively district of Trasvestere. After any tiring walk, we were always glad to return back to the beautiful and quiet courtyard. The staff was very friendly and our room (No. 12) was quite comfortable....

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
