This is a small boutique hotel and it was my first experience staying at a boutique hotel. Pros: I checked in late but I was emailed a code before hand on how to gain access to the property. Its just about 6 rooms so very homey feel. Bathroom was very updated. Cute patio for smoking (?) or coffee or drinks...

The staff was wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable, the room quiet, and great location! Loved it. The location in Trastevere was excellent. It was across the river from many of the main sites but easily within walking distance.Would recommend without hesitation and would stay there again!

We stayed at the Residenza for 4 nights and this was our first trip to Italy. When we go back to Rome some day we will stay again. The room we had (family of 4 - room #1) was perfect.

Our trip was pretty last minute but luckily we were able to score a room at the Residenza Santa Maria. It's located off a small cobbled street with plenty of restaurants around. We HIGHLY recommend Le Mani in Pasta, which is only a 7-10 min walk. The room we had was very clean and comfortable. I think the only small...

We stayed at the Residenza Santa Maria in the first week of July '13... I had done a fair bit of research into choosing our accomodation and I have to stress that whatever I had read about this hotel didn't do justice. Rooms are the standard European size which meant small to us spoilt Asians but it was spotlessly clean,...

Residenza Santa Maria is a tremendous value. The Trasterve neighborhood is fantastic with all of the wonderful restaurants to eat with the locals literally right outside your door. It's also only a 2 minute light rail ride away from the center of Rome. The breakfast is fantastic and very large. The rooms were very clean and private. The staff was...

We recently stayed at this well located boutique hotel. The staff was great, and the included breakfast a typical Roman fare. Unfortunately our room, a family suite, was quite musty, and the bedding old. The shared inner courtyard could use some updates, as well. I would, however, return to this site, choosing a different room or book at its sister...

The hotel is small and very cozy. It looks like it would be a such a big flat. Only 6 rooms are at the hotel, however this fact makes things only better.

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)
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. ... more   less
