We had a quad room with a king-size bed and bunk-bed singles. There was plenty of room for luggage, a small refrigerator to keep our drinks cold, and a good-sized bath. Very cheerful and comfortable; bathroom spotless; my son said the top bunk was a dusty (hence the good-not-excellent rating on cleanliiness) The rooms surround a courtyard where we had breakfast when weather allowed -- lovely! Good selection of food, too: Eggs, meats and cheeses, yogurt, cereal, bread, sweets, and fresh fruit. At 5:30, the bar serves delicious little appetizers, like bruscheta and bites of pizza, and the drinks are inexpensive. Free internet. Great location, just a block away from the (beautiful!) church of S. Maria in Trastevere, and the active, fun square in front of it. Tons of restaurants, bars, and gelateria in the neighborhood, and it's only a 15-minute walk to the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, or the Roman forum. Even closer to the restaurants and stalls along the river. Trastevere is just great, and the Hotel Santa Maria is a great place to stay there. A few comments in the guest book were negative on the staff serving breakfast, and they were occasionally brusque but still responsive to any request, and the front desk folks are truly gracious helpful!
