Don't book anywhere else because this hotel is the best... a quiet oasis in the middle of a bustling area. Walking distance to everything. All the staff are so helpful. Recommending and booking restaurants, organizing taxis, handing out umbrellas!! It's just amazing when you first arrive and see the Orange tree garden and right outside your bedroom door.! Room was...

Unfortunately, I spent only one night at this charming hotel. It is a peaceful place with a lovely garden sitting area and yet a very short walk over the bridge to the center of Rome and all the activity. The room was small but very well-appointed and the bathroom was great. All of the staff were extremely helpful. I would...

I've been to Rome to several times and found adequate hotels. Hotel Santa Maria is different and better - it is an enclave with a friendly staff, generous breakfasts and happy hour food and, most important, comfortable rooms. And, it is located in one of the more interesting "hip" neighborhoods. We paid a bit more for split level room and...

Orangery court yard in the centre of hotel was a small oasis after a hectic days site seeing. Teddies left for children on the last day of out stay was a nice touch. Would stay here again both...

Amazing little hotel with a beautiful courtyard of orange and lemon trees. A Little house was given to us. The only bad thing, my partner is 6ft4 and the ceilings were too low for him and he ended up bending over and hunching the whole time! Not great when you hit your head in the middle of the night too!BUT...

Stayed for an extended weekend and couldn't believe how relaxing the place was. Ideal base for walking to all sites and reception staff give you a map with approximate time to get to them. Room spotlessly clean as was rest of hotel. The courtyard is stunning in the sunlight and the evening buffet is a must !

This is the second time I stayed at Hotel Santa Maria. Both times my stay has been great. Right in the heart of Trastevere, this is a great location. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and capuccinos are great. A big bonus for me has been free use of their bicycles - that's how I've gotten around...

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.
