I fully agree with the recent review of Kathy S about this hotel. We stayed in the hotel last year and were impressed - not so this week in early October. The prices had climbed dramatically, but the overall quality had dropped dramatically. Our room was little more than a large box room, the bathroom had significant defects and the...

This hotel is located in Trastevere in Rome, a very calm but alive neighborhood. This means you are at a walking distance from all of the attractions offered in Rome. You can also easily commute to go faster. The rooms are clean and offer just a decent size. The hotel offers a bar/terrasse on top where you have a great...

I had booked this hotel for five nights and left after the first few hours.I have never written a poor review but I want others not to make the same mistake I did. The room was dated, had peeling paint/plaster and a very strong musty smell. Thinking this would disappear once the air conditioner was turned on we waited for...

This hotel is in a good location, easy access to the historical centre etc. Excellent breakfasts, good staff, clean enough although difficult to make the rooms look good as they do need an upgrade. Would stay here again though.

This is a lovely hotel. We have stayed here several times and it is clean, comfortable and a good base for a visit to Rome. The staff is kind and helpful, the breakfast is great and we like the rooftop bar. The rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable.

The room we stayed in at Hotel San Francesco was cramped and dated - incredibly basic, a room from a budget chain hotel in need of a refurb, NOT a boutique hotel. We weren't expecting 5 star luxury, but we were expecting a room shown a little love and charm, not a gloomy little bed box. We were so disappointed...

Hotel San Francesco was only one walking block from the Main Street. Great little hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. The best part of the hotel was their roof top patio bar. Very comfortable, gorgeous views and very friendly bartender. Breakfast was included in the price even thought there wasn't a kitchen (continental). The room was quite small but...

Great stay at the San Francesco. Nice location, a short walk to the center of Trastevere. The rooftop bar is a great place to relax with a beautiful view, even if you're not a guest. Bartender is fantastic. Rooms were not luxurious, but clean and comfortable, with modern bathrooms. Walls were thin, so could be a problem for light sleepers....

With a crazy idea of setting up a surprise for daughter and husband on their 10th anniversary in Rome, I contacted the hotel San Francesco where their first 2 nights were booked. By email, and with lots of what I would like and their responses, the hotel pulled off this surprise in excellent Italian fashion. The rooftop bar staff prepared...

To be fair, I'm just going to organize this by Pro/Con Pros: They were very receptive during the booking process to answering questions and offering a discount for Rick Steves readers.

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
