“Great Hotel and Great Location!”
Reviewed 25 September 2009

The hotel was great! Welcoming staff, great rooms and that courtyard. I can't wait to go back. We were only thhere for three nights but it was well worth it. We walked to all the major and some minor tourist attractions with ease from this hotel.
We got a little lost in the neigborhood but we were able to see more of the area.

It is difficult to find hotels in Rome which manage to combine friendly service, value for money and a decent location. The hotel owner and staff were all extremely pleasant, the breakfast and pre-dinner snacks included in the room rate were a pleasant start and end to the day and the little hotel courtyard was a good place to relax and escape from the chaos of the city. We all enjoyed use of the free hotel bicycles, managing to see a great deal of Rome which we would otherwise have missed. Another detail: our son forgot one of his shirts in the room when we left and they sent it on to us, refusing to charge for postage.

The hotel is in a great location in the Travestere and is quiet with a nice courtyard. Rooms are very clean, breakfast was good & the staff are very helpful. Great value in August although more expensive in other months.

The Hotel Santa Maria,Trastevere will not disappoint . Trastevere is a fantastic base for exploring all the main tourist attractions of Rome which are all within reasonable walking distance of the hotel. A street map is essential as the hotel is hidden away in a small side street which can be difficult to locate. The hotel is secured by a set of high iron gates with 24 hour access. Free snacks are provided during the early evening and an excellent breakfast choice is available in the covered courtyard. The rooms are a good size by Rome standards equipped with a comfortable bed and excellent en-suite facilities. One disappointment was the lack of any room tea/coffee making equipment.
Light sleepers are advised to travel with earplugs because the nearby church and clock bells ring during the night.. Restaurants recommended by the hotel staff were excellent and very good value. The hotel taxi service to and from the hotel is recommended for price and service. I would highly recommend the Hotel Santa Maria for the tranquillity, location , service and for the opportunity to experience the "real" Rome.

We stayed here for two nights prior to leaving for a cruise. We loved the courtyard where we could sit and have a meal, a cocktail or pleasant conversation. The wine bar had free appetizers each night and the bar tender was a lot of fun. They were happy to provide lots of ice which we didn't get in other places. The breakfasts were very good. Internet only in the breakfast room area. We were able to get it out in the courtyard or our room. Lots of good cafes close by, a taxi stand within walking distance(or have one called for a couple more euros). The staff were helpful and pleasant. All in all, a great start to our vacation. You do have to be able to pull your luggage as it is in an alley that many taxis cannot get into.
