We stayed at Reisdenza Santa Maria for 4 nights in Nov 2012. Our room was right off the lobby sitting room, wi-fi worked well, and the room was large and comfortable. The shower was the best we experienced out of many hotels in Italy, including some 5 star. The room was serviced daily,large fluffy towels, the breakfast buffet was very...

My daughter and I stayed four nights at this delightful hotel in the heart of Trastevere, a district with maximum charm and (positive) attitude. The hotel staff were knowledgeable and very friendly; the accommodations were very comfortable, and the included breakfast was a perfect way to start each day. I would definitely stay at Residenza Santa Maria again, if I...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in October and loved the Residenza Santa Maria. Trastevere is a great location to return to at the end of a busy day touring Rome. Great restaurants and night life but still quiet. Our room was lovely and made us feel like we were in a country inn (other than the obnoxiously noisy...

This is a nice, clean and cute small hotel. It is in the heart of Trastevere, close to shopping, restaurants and sights. The staff is nice, friendly and helpful.

This was the second stay at Residenza Santa Maria, and I would definately book it again, when I return to the eternal city!

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 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
