Stayed 4 nights in Trastavere- this hotel is on the outer edge of that neighborhood & is not particularly close to public transportation except for the line 8 Tram. so prepare to walk/taxi to tourist spots but the pay off is being close to cool nightlife and the rooftop bar is awesome and rare for that area. Matteo at the roofbar is extremely nice & very informative. He took our map to a whole new level with bus/tram and see or skip it info. our room was quiet (3rd floor) even though we were near elevator/stairs. the room decor is sparse, barron, not much to it. the flooring feels like burlap. its very hard on tired feet but the payoff is the big spacious (american sized!) shower. this was our last stop on a 10 day trip and to have room in the shower was huge plus. Breakfast was good, but the area is small & it was crowded everyday we went down there. the tables all seemed set for 2 people and they didn't really bring us more cups/plates/forks so we just shared. coffee is bad but they will make you a cappucino if you ask. service is excellent. front desk is there 24/7 & they printed out several vouchers/tickets internet info that we sent them from our ipad. the only weird thing is they give you this 10 lb key (no lie, its heavy) that they encourage you to leave with them- kinda old school style- not sure why they are still doing this when most have updated to keycards. And having to have your key in the lightswitch gets annoying when there are several guests.
