Charming and Off the Beaten Pathfrom CatherinedePaquis
Perfect for what we wantedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Nice hotel in charming area of Romefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel gives a nice impression. The lobby is nicely decorated. The rooms are a bit small, but the bathrooms are spacious. There was a closet to hang up clothes, but it would have been nice to have a dresser as well. The airconditioning was very quiet and effective, and the double-paned windows did a good job of blocking out the moderate traffic noise. (Ask for a room in the back; I think they're probably quieter.)
There's an attractive roof garden with a pleasant view. A nice place to meet before heading out for dinner.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. If you're arriving from the main airport, take the train to the Trastevere station (not the central station). It will save you a lot of hassle and expense.

Terrific in Travestrefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Upon Arrival, our room was freshly cleaned. Additionally, they pointed us in the right direction for a great lunch and explained where everything was in location to the hotel on a map. The bathroom has a huge walk-in shower – delightful. The room is big by European standards, with beautiful long windows that open to let in fresh air and sun. I would definitely stay in this wonderful relaxing hotel, with a great location in a residential neighborhood – no tourist pricey traps here. You’ll find delightful gelateria’s and ristarante’s in Travestre.
Small hotel, great locationfrom dbus85
Trestavere is a great location, a real Roman neighborhood, near everything and safe. What we liked most was that it was not a tourist trap section, like other parts of Rome.
We stayed in a nice room with a modern bathroom. Spacious by European Standards. Room and hotel was quiet and very clean.
Great Breakfast ...much to chose from and very Italian/European. Massimo and the entire staff was extremely helpful in getting us cabs, directions, flat irons, etc...
Our last nite we stayed at another hotel near the Airport...we regretted not coming back to Trastevere and Hotel San Francesco.
While there is some traffic in front of the hotel it quiets at night. The hotel has a very pleasant, modern lobby, nice touches like a bowls of cherry tomatoes and chocolates for nibbling on the front desk. Our room was small, but very clean, very comfortable bed (we like a firm mattress). TV has BBC and CNN. Bathroom was large, modern, attractive. Breakfast buffet was quite good, lots of fresh fruit, pasteries, breads, cereal, yogurt, juices, cold meat, cheese and always hot eggs and bacon. The breakfast room is long and narrow, one side is glass and looks out on a lovely old cloistered yard (it belong to the church next door, so one can only look). The staff was quite accomodating in calling restaurants to get reservations, arranging taxi rides, etc. location is very convenient to the tram which takes you quickly to the historic center of Rome. We enjoyed the roof top terrace, several times picnic-ing with lovely supplies from neighborhood cheese and wine shops. This is not the hotel for you if you like big Hilton/Sheraton type places, but if you enjoy smaller, less "cookie cutter" hotels in interesting areas (no tee shirt shops, no mcdonalds, no prada,) you will like this hotel. One should also be willing and able to do some walking or navigating the transportation system to really enjoy the location.(We find using public transportation interesting and a positive aspect of our travel) The price seemed quite reasonable.We will definately return and will recommend it to our friends
Weekend Breakfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I recommend the bus/tram/metro tickets which can be bought for 4 euros per day or 11 euros for 3 days, great value as you can use all services unlimited.
Customer service was great both before and after arrival, email contact was superb and all queries answered.
Desk staff nothing short of first class from serving lager, ordering taxis, waking people up so others could get into their rooms etc.
Careful at the railway station where naive travellers will be caught by unofficial taxi drivers offering rides for extortionate prices. They wanted 40 euros for two cars eg. 80 euros. We new this and used some anglo saxon words to move them on.
Use the official rank. 10 euros to our Hotel for 6 people.
I think our group behaved ok which for 12 adult males is a bonus.

Top Local Tips for Rome
Helpful Hint To really get the most out of a short break in Rome, I highly recommend going on a guided tour/trip. You get to see a lot of the city in a short space of time, see lots of attractions and get insights that would otherwise be missed.
Ai Marni thinnest crispiest tastiest pizz'as in the world.
St Peter's You now have to be security scanned to enter St Peter's. Best to avoid peak times, when the tour buses go.....
