My husband and I travel to Italy a couple of times a year to visit family and we always stay at the Hotel Santa Maria. It is a charming hotel in a great location. It is secure, quiet and the staff is so helpful. I've stayed other places in Rome, but nothing compares to Hotel Santa Maria. The rooms are simple and clean with cheery paintings and comfortable beds. Nice, modern bathrooms.
They have a lovely, quiet court yard with orange trees. In the spring the scent of the blossoms is amazing. There are chairs for lounging, bikes for a spin around the city and rooms that work well for singles, couples and families. They offer a great breakfast and afternoon afternoon happy hour, serving typical Roman treats.
The Trastavere neighborhood is with in walking distance of everything you would like to see in Rome. It is full of excellent restaurants, coffee shops and gelato. It's a neighborhood that feels like real Rome, not tourist Rome. One of the wonderful things about the Hotel Santa Maria is very close to a large piazza, which makes for excellent people watching.
The staff is great and take care of our every need. They will arrange for a paid car service to and/or from the airport which is great when you have jet lag coming in or an early flight out in the morning.
The best part of staying here is the charming location and the only thing I don't like is that at some point I have to leave! For a room in Rome, it's an excellent value.
