The Hotel San Francesco is an excellent choice for those individuals that want to stay in the Trastevere section of Rome. The staff is very helpful, the rooms are fairly large, it has a roof top bar, and the breakfast is unbeatable. Wonderful restaurants and small shops are all within walking distance. There is easy access to public transportation that...

After three days, we had to move to another hotel for a business conference, but we liked the Trastevere neighborhood so much we came back here for the final night of our stay. It is true, as others have noted, that the rooms are small. But there is an easy solution - pack light and use a laundry just a...

My daughter and I just returned from a four night stay at the San Francesco. The rooms were small but immaculate. The bathroom was huge. It is a lovely hotel with a very friendly English speaking staff. Unfortunately, the weather was very hot and there was no air conditioning so we had no choice but to keep the windows open...

We eventually opted to stay in SF for 4 nights from the reviews seen here. It was an idyllic place as it was situated next to a quiet piazza. Picked up by airport transfer which was perfect as soon as you land from an 8 hour flight without the hassle of finding a cab or shuttle. Check-in was quick and...

A quiet hotel in Trastevere, a delightful residential area of Rome without many tourists, yet only about a 15 minute walk to Piazza Navona. Rooms are smallish, but workable, great breakfast, relaxing rooftop bar. We will stay here again on our next trip.

We had a fabulous 3 night stay at the San Francesco in mid May. The directions from airport via train and tram were provided by the hotel and were so helpful.

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.

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
