During last weeks we have been moving all reservation data from an old software to a new one and it happened that one reservation has been wrongly considered cancelled. As soon as we realized it was not we made our best to provide an alternative accommodation. So we booked a 4 star hotel (we are 3 star) at the same...

I've just returned from my first trip to Italy with the first 2 nights in Rome at the Hotel San Francesco. This is very much a boutique hotel--filled with many artistic touches throughout the building. The rooftop terrace is very cool, and yes(as noted in a previous review) the wine is kind of expensive and the glasses were not as...

We very much enjoyed our week long stay at the Hotel San Francesco in Trastevere. The room was small, but it was also quiet and relatively inexpensive by Roman standards. The breakfast was wonderful and the rooftop bar was a lovely place to have a drink in the afternoon. Trastevere is a fun place to stay with numerous great restaurants...

We enjoyed our 6 nights at Hotel San Francesco very much. There are many quaint little restaurants within walking distance, and it was easy to access public transportation to get to anywhere we wanted to go in Rome. Our room was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spotless and quite large. All the staff (front desk, breakfast servers, etc.) were...

Perfect location in a quiet square off the Viale Trastevere, the only sound was the chiming of the local church bell. Room was small but perfectly adequate and very clean, nice large bathroom. Breakfast was lovely, great choice of fruits, yoghurt, cereals, bread, ham, cheese, cakes, pastries and even bacon and eggs in the hot cabinet. We walked to all...

What a delight! Of all the hotels on our trip, this was absolutely the best. Astounding low price for great location, services, and air conditioned accommodation with spectacular bathroom. Our beautiful room overlooked the monestary and we loved watching the old friar fall asleep under the oilve tree in his garden surrounded by birds and chickens. Incredibly quiet, a real...

Our family of five stayed at the San Francesco from August 2-6,2005. The hotel is modern and comfortable, while maintaining that intimate boutique hotel feel. Both the double and the triple rooms were nicely decorated, had great showers, and air conditioning that really worked. The breakfast room was lovely and the breakfast buffet included more options than anyplace else we...

We booked this hotel based on recommendations from this website and were slightly disppointed as we were expecting something fantastic. The hotel is good but not as great as some people made out.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere
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)
Hotel San Francesco is a small & charming 3 star hotel located in Trastevere the hippest and most lively area in the center of Rome. 24 rooms all set with Private Bathroom, Free WiFi, Minibar, Flat TV, Hairdryer, Telephone, Safe Box and Air Conditioning. The Continental Buffet Breakfast is always included and the reception is open 24h. An amazing 360° view overlooking the Aventino hill and Trastevere is waiting for you at the top of the hotel. Our Rooftop bar La Terrazza will be open on warm seasons from 6 PM to 11:30 PM. An oasis of peace and relaxation where you can have a refreshing drink and chill out after a day sightseeing. All major tourist sights such as the Colosseum, the Vatican and Trevi Fountain can be easily reached by public transports but our suggestion is to wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the city by walking through the ancient narrow streets. ... more   less
