We just returned from our first trip to Italy where we spent five nights in Hotel Santa Maria. This is really an extraordinary place. From the moment our taxi dropped us at the square we were entranced by the quiet alleyways that lead to this lovely and secluded the hotel. Little did we know these same alleyways become lively nightspots full of people strolling and dining in the dozens of trattorrias and wine bars. The hotel is an oasis in Rome, with quiet garden patios under orange trees where we sipped cappuchino and used the Wi-Fi. We walked easily to most of the sites. The staff was happy to summon a taxi for others. They couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was a "mansarda" suite, meaning it was on the second floor in a sort of dormer configuration. It was very comfortable with a seperate sleeping area and 1/2 bath for our teenager, and so quiet that we all overslept the first day. The only sounds we heard were birds and chuchbells from nearby Santa Maria. The breakfast buffet, served in a lovely cafe with beautiful pastrys and fresh cappuchino, made it hard to leave each day, but the incredible sights of Rome await! In all, an unforgettable stay.
