Where to stay in Rome has always been an adventure for me; personal recommendations are not always consistent, and fussing about on the internet is often a hit-or-miss game. However, after two weeks painting a mural in a villa on the Amalfi coast, my partner and I were to continue our business in Rome for two days and needed to be near the American Academy, so at least the 'internet' decision was made to try for the first time, Locanda San Pancrazio. Our decision could not have suited us better.
The inn is small, beautifully appointed and administered by gracious, helpful people. The location is great for visiting the Centro Storico, the Vatican, and of course, Trastervere. Our room was a classic double, with almost enough storage for our two-week old chattel, and the atmosphere was serene. The best surprise was the terrace, which is the entire roof of the building, and is surrounded mostly by trees and a few taller, picturesque buildings, all of which frame interesting views of the city. We had cocktails on the terrace in the afternoon, and breakfast there in the morning...molto bellisimo! And, at all times serenaded by the song birds, entertained by acrobatic swallows, with the occasional parrot sighting. The birdsong almost drowned out the minimal traffic--the inn is a hundred metres from the Via Garabaldi and next to the botanical garden, ensuring peace--and as close to quiet as I have found in Rome. Neither of us could imagine we would have the city version of our Amalfi villa, but then, Rome is sometime a city of nice surprises. I may not have to play the hit or miss game for a hotel in Rome ever again.
