The Residenza San Calisto ( previously know Residenza Santa Maria), is a small exclusive Hotel de charme, located I the heart of Rome, just a stone's from the magnificent and picturesque square of Santa Maria in Trastevere. This boutique Hotel is the result of the skilful restoration of a 17th century building. The whole house is dominated by brick arches, wooden ceilings, artistic hand painted frescos and wall decorations which give to the Residenza Santa Maria an atmosphere of refined elegance. With only 6 rooms, the Residenza Santa Maria is somewhat smaller than its namesake which allows for even greater atmosphere, notwithstanding the fact that having only recently opened it is also equipped with high tech environment. The large and quite, no smoking, rooms, some of which family rooms, are fully equipped with private bathroom with tub and shower, A/C, telephone, mini-bar, safe, satellite flat panel TVs, free internet connection, boiler for tea/coffee and other amenities. In the breakfast room, once a Roman cistern of the II cen. BC, decorated by original ancient Roman artifacts found on site during restoration of the building, guests can enjoy a rich and delicious buffet breakfast, (scramble or boiled eggs, ham, cheese, salami, fresh bread, assortment of biscuits, cakes, fresh fruits, yogurt, fresh croissants, selection of fruit juices etc.). Thanks to great location, from the Residenza Santa Maria, guests can easily reach the main tourist sites like Campo de' Fiori, Navona Square, the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi's fountain, the Roman Forum and Coliseum with just a relaxing stroll through a maze of fascinating medieval streets. The Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Square are a few minutes away. Furthermore Trastevere, apart from the beauty of its mediaeval narrow little streets, is filled with typical restaurants, markets, pubs and cafes.The Residenza Santa Maria also offers services like transfer to and from the airport, private guided tours, laundry service, shiatsu massage, beauty centre, baby sitting service and car and scooter hire, as well as offering free use of bikes to its personal guests.

When you are in Rome, the eternal City, the experience to stay in a place like this one, is the experience that makes you feel Roman. The tour around, by walk, in all these little paved roads, this all these ancient houses, little bars, Romans as well as tourists enjoying drinks, makes you feel you are in the right spot. Loved the clean simplicity of the rooms, I felt the attention to cleaning and disinfection in every little detail and felt secure for my self and my family to sleep in here. Strongly recommend this little tiny place for your next stay in Rome

We stayed a few days in this Trastevere (be sure to pronounce it as a Roman would) neighborhood hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. The wi-fi worked perfectly for the duration of our stay. The staff were helpful and kind. Breakfast was included and we stopped each morning we didn't sleep in. The neighborhood is safe and friendly to all kinds of travelers. Calm by day and busy by night, always with something to do. We walked to and from the hotel whenever we wanted to go see the sights. When we did need a taxi, the hotel was able to arrange a ride for us. I would highly recommend the Hotel Residenza San Calisto for travel to Rome.
