We stayed at this hotel with colleagues due to the proximity of the hotel to the venue of our business meetings. As there are not many hotels in Trastevere, this hotel proved to be a practical choice. It is a nice, small hotel, offering standard services for a hotel of this level. Breakfast is available for a (small) fee. It...

My friend booked this hotel for us impulsively and I was positively surprised by our very comfortable stay. The room and bathroom were very clean and the staff was very kind. We spent 5 nights in this hotel and never once occured the thought that we should change the hotel. It's in perfect walking distance to a lot of restaurants...

I chose this hotel as it was close to where our son is studying for a semester abroad. I was delightfully surprised at this gem hidden down a side street. I stayed for 4 nights and had a nice room that overlooked a lovely courtyard. I would definitely stay here again!

We found this hotel at the last minute and we're lucky they had openings because it's normally full. The cost was moderate for the area but the staff was extremely helpful with directions, the room was very clean and comfortable with a few English channels and a nice bathroom and the breakfast was amazing. A short walk to the bus...

I was spending a few days in Rome while my husband was working and this lovely little hotel was a peaceful and restful oasis close to all the big sights but away from the hoards of tourists. The hotel isn't as sumptuous as some of the city centre chains but the rooms are spotless and well kept and the bathrooms...

We stayed 5 nights. Room was small but sufficient as we were out most of the day. What would be helpful is coffee facilities in the room or available earlier than 7:30AM. When asking for tour information front desk was not helpful more than what we could have googled. Breakfast was the best part and a good value. Rooftop bar...

The room was sparsely but adequately furnished and clean. The hotel is on a quiet street and when I was there I didn't hear a lot going on in the other rooms. The staff was very helpful when needed. The 5 Euro breakfast was great in the morning. No complaints!

Stayed here for 3 nights with my sister. Staff were friendly and helpful with directions and interpreting Rome map, also booked taxis for us. Room small but nice, bathroom clean. Wifi a little unreliable. Breakfast buffet quite enjoyable. Would stay again.

My wife and i spent a week here and really enjoyed our stay. The staff are very helpfull and the roof top bar is a great spot in the evenings. The location is very good and we were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. Trastevere is a good area for food and there are some nice bars...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel San Francesco is a small & charming 3 star hotel located in Trastevere the hippest and most lively area in the center of Rome. 24 rooms all set with Private Bathroom, Free WiFi, Minibar, Flat TV, Hairdryer, Telephone, Safe Box and Air Conditioning. The Continental Buffet Breakfast is always included and the reception is open 24h. An amazing 360° view overlooking the Aventino hill and Trastevere is waiting for you at the top of the hotel. Our Rooftop bar La Terrazza will be open on warm seasons from 6 PM to 11:30 PM. An oasis of peace and relaxation where you can have a refreshing drink and chill out after a day sightseeing. All major tourist sights such as the Colosseum, the Vatican and Trevi Fountain can be easily reached by public transports but our suggestion is to wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the city by walking through the ancient narrow streets. ... more   less
