Lovely stay in this characterful hotel. Good varied breakfast. Relaxed stay. Good location, able to walk across the river to the main sites. Also walked to the Vatican 25mins, bus also available. After all the busy sightseeing the hotel was ideally situated for dining in the evening, many places to eat in this area which was quite busy with tourists...

My husband and I booked this lovely hotel for a short break. Having visited Rome previously and falling in love with the Trastevere district we knew we wanted to stay in this area. The hotel is in a perfect location for exploring Trastevere and the Vatican. The Colosseum and other attractions are about a 30 minute stroll away down the...

We found Residenza Santa Maria on Trip Advisor when we were looking for a neighborhood hotel in the Trastevere Neighborhood. Through their web site, we booked their luxury apartment unit. The price for the unit was very reasonable. When we were confirming reservations, we learned that the apartment is separate from the hotel and is located in the Jewish Ghetto,...

We spent two nights here during our honeymoon in Rome. After researching and reading many reviews, we knew we wanted to stay in Trastevere. It was the perfect location for us, surrounded by the best restaurants and still in good walking distance to the major sites. We did take a taxi to the Vatican but it was quick and inexpensive,...

This is my favorite location in all of Rome. Seconds from Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, easy access to the whole neighborhood and 15-20 min walk across the river to the historic downtown. The room was great, front desk service was wonderful and they were so kind to us!

Very helpful staff arranged for a car to meet us at the airport-70 euros for 4 of us. Lovely small boutique hotel. Room was quiet and comfortable. Big breakfast with pastries, fruit, meat, cheese and eggs. All the staff were lovely. Nice location in Trastevere. Had a wonderful lunch at Nonna Betta in the Jewish ghetto.

A nice little hotel in Trastevere, many restaurants and bars in a short walking distance. The room was fine, the service was good (except for the reception opening hours which I'll explain) and the breakfast was OK. BUT we had to do a 'self check in' because the reception was open until 2 pm in that day. 2 pm??? We...

Dear Guest, we're glad you enjoyed the location of our small hotel which has only six rooms. Trastevere is is the most typical district of Rome full of small alleys, little streets and romantic squares, each of them has its own history and character. Trastevere, literally the neighbourhood “across the Tiber” on Tiber’s left bank, is a lovely recreation from...

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)
The 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. This boutique Hotel is the result of the skilful restoration of a 17th century building. 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. With only 6 rooms, the Residenza Santa Maria is somewhat smaller than its namesake which allows for even greater atmosphere, notwithstanding the fact that having only recently opened it is also equipped with high tech environment. The large and quite, no smoking, rooms, some of which family rooms, are fully equipped with private bathroom with tub and shower, A/C, telephone, mini-bar, safe, satellite flat panel TVs, free internet connection, boiler for tea/coffee and other amenities. 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
