We arrived during the day and were a bit concerned at the area having read all of the excellent Tripadvisor reviews. Once we were inside the Guesthouse we were delighted with our choice as it is clean and bright and Sonia is very friendly and helpful. The room was everything we needed with a safe and a mini bar as... More

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed the perfect location and the kindness of a superb hostess. Thank you Sonia for making our visit a great success! Can't wait to come back. The room was spacious and the breakfast way over what we expected.

After a sleepless night in this Relais, we decided to leave and search for another hotel in town. When I had booked in this Relais I had specifically requested a very quiet room. The answer was that all the rooms were quiet. We ended up in a room directly looking out on to the busy terrace of the restaurant next... More

Dear Veronique, the restaurant's cuisine has an extractor fan that is powered from h. 19:00 until 22:00. I did close the extractor fan immediately after your request. Anyhow the restaurant closes at 23:00. The Guests next your room have never complained. Many Guests ask me where to buy the perfume. But if you do not like it you can move... More

I stayed here with my friend in June 2015 and it was the first time in Rome for the both of us. We had booked a room with two singles but ended up with a double bed, however we didn't bother changing when we were later offered as we were happy enough to top-and-tail. The rooms were so lovely -... More

I stayed here in room 3 with my wife back in early November 2014 and it was so good I'm visiting again next month. The property is small & simple but well appointed inside. Location in Trastevere is great, right by the Porta Settimana the building is supposedly where Raphael's mistress lived (La Fornarina). Despite being a lively area the... More

This is a great place to stay if you want to be close to restaurants and bars while having the city centre only a short walk away. We had a really nice, clean and spacious room, that was fairly quiet despite the window facing a busy street. I would definitely stay there again!

My wife and I stayed at Relais Casa della Fornarina in December 2013 for an 8 day stay in Rome. The only problem with this guest house is finding it.

We stayed 3 nights here in Room 2 - huge room, spotlessly clean - very good double glazed windows - although it was pretty quiet at night. We booked the airport transfer which was faultless and very pleasant. Sonia was very helpful and came up with some great restaurant recommendations.

The communal areas were very clean, as were the bedrooms/bathrooms. Furnishings were modern and well maintained. The room was big enough, but not huge. There is satellite tv, but note that no channels are completely in English if this is important to you.

Clean, modern, amenable and quiet b&b in the centre of trastavere. An excellent find, with all facilities needed in the room, including safe, and cappuccino maker. For the price this was well above standard, and I felt safe here Ada solo travellers. 20 min walk to Vatican, and 20 mon down to tram 8 to trastavere station and rome airport.... More

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.

“Our room at the front of the building upstairs was lovely - I am pretty sure the other 2/3 rooms are just as lovely - we didn't see these though. Probably don't worry about which room you get I am sure they are all fab.”
