“LOVE THIS PLACE”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

This is a wonderful small hotel located very close to Piazza Santa Maria in the heart of Trastevere. The large rooms are clean, well appointed and comfortable. The staff is wonderful; very friendly and helpful.Good breakfast. We have stayed in several other Trastevere B+Bs but will return to Residenza Santa Maria.

This is a great place, just around the corner from Piazza Maria di Trastevere in the middle of everything. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff and a good breakfast with parma, salami, cheese and scrambled eggs.
We will be back!

Spending four November nights in the centre of Trastevere was a real treat for us. We liked the room, the breakfasts and the friendly and helpful staff a lot. We will choose to return here next time we visit Rome.

Conveniently located among Trastevere's narrow cobbled streets, the Residenza comprises 6 rooms in a 17th century(?) building. It is a satellite of a larger hotel a few blocks away. In consequence reception is only staffed in the morning and early evening. The breakfast buffet was good considering the small number of rooms served. Our room was large, with traditional high wooden ceiling, tiled floor and hand-stencilled wall. There was a good powerful shower and tub. We walked to the major sites (colosseum, forum, Vatican, Trevi etc). A big plus is the large choice of eateries in Travestere very close to the Residenza, many inexpensive (we loved the Augusto).

Perfect location in the Trastevere neighborhood (with many cafe's, restaurants, little shops, quaint streets for exploring), close to the Tiber River and the #23 bus line, and walkable to the Collusium (if you like/areable to walk a mile or so). Friendly staff who were willing to assist with any questions/needs. Our room was quite large and well-appointed, very comfortable. The premises were clean and well-kept and buffet breakfast was a great way to start the day. We were only a block from the Plaza Santa Maria, a fun place for evening drinks and enjoying the local atmosphere. After a day of sightseeing with the crowds, an evening in Trastevere was perfect! We would definitely recommend this charming boutique hotel and would love to be able to return again.

Reviewed 13 October 2013

very nice boutique hotel. We really like the location - so close to the Trastevere main fair while at the same is in a very quite street.

We've stayed in a room with bunk beds and a queen bed - although very small, I thought the room was very practically appointed with tasteful decoration, as well as being very clean.

I also loved the nice indoor terrace just near the reception - I get up quite early in the mornings and have really enjoyed reading here until the breakfast time.

People at the reception were very helpful and polite.

breakfast was quite average - meaning the food. The service staff was great and the breakfast room was quite nice as well.

When in Rome, we probably would stay here again.

The Residenza San Calisto ( previously know Residenza Santa Maria), is a small exclusive Hotel de charme, located I the heart of Rome, just a stone's from the magnificent and picturesque square of Santa Maria in Trastevere. This boutique Hotel is the result of the skilful restoration of a 17th century building. The whole house is dominated by brick arches, wooden ceilings, artistic hand painted frescos and wall decorations which give to the Residenza Santa Maria an atmosphere of refined elegance. With only 6 rooms, the Residenza Santa Maria is somewhat smaller than its namesake which allows for even greater atmosphere, notwithstanding the fact that having only recently opened it is also equipped with high tech environment. The large and quite, no smoking, rooms, some of which family rooms, are fully equipped with private bathroom with tub and shower, A/C, telephone, mini-bar, safe, satellite flat panel TVs, free internet connection, boiler for tea/coffee and other amenities. In the breakfast room, once a Roman cistern of the II cen. BC, decorated by original ancient Roman artifacts found on site during restoration of the building, guests can enjoy a rich and delicious buffet breakfast, (scramble or boiled eggs, ham, cheese, salami, fresh bread, assortment of biscuits, cakes, fresh fruits, yogurt, fresh croissants, selection of fruit juices etc.). Thanks to great location, from the Residenza Santa Maria, guests can easily reach the main tourist sites like Campo de' Fiori, Navona Square, the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi's fountain, the Roman Forum and Coliseum with just a relaxing stroll through a maze of fascinating medieval streets. The Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Square are a few minutes away. Furthermore Trastevere, apart from the beauty of its mediaeval narrow little streets, is filled with typical restaurants, markets, pubs and cafes.The Residenza Santa Maria also offers services like transfer to and from the airport, private guided tours, laundry service, shiatsu massage, beauty centre, baby sitting service and car and scooter hire, as well as offering free use of bikes to its personal guests. ... more   less
