Nice, cozy hotel in Trastevere section of Rome, located 1 minute from the plaza where the Santa Maria de Trastevere church is located. Don't miss out on visiting the church.
Hotel room was quiet, even when there was lots of activity right outside the hotel.
The hotel is not staffed 7x24, but there is a parent hotel a couple of minutes away if you need help when the hotel does not have staff on duty.
Breakfast was good.
Room was deceptively big - there is a main bedroom plus a second area where there are two bunk beds, a closet and fridge/safe. Bathroom was fine except the hair dryer did not work very well.
Trastevere is indeed a good section of town to stay in, and this is a good location in Trastevere. Make sure you have a good map when wandering around, as the streets twist around and change names. From here, we walked everywhere in the city, although not everyone would want to walk from here to the Vatican or Borghese gallery.
Staff was helpful at all times except once when they suggested that we would not need a dinner reservation at 7:30 anywhere, and we couldn't get in to a restaurant that we really wanted to go to.
