The Trastevere neighborhood is the lively and charming sweetheart of Rome. With wonderful restaurants, bars to suit all tastes and preferences, and a location within walking distance to both the Vatican and Piazza Navona, it’s a great area to stay in and explore during your visit in the city. It offers plenty of options for a comfortable home away from home, often in historic buildings (or even a converted convent). Stay at one of these hand-picked hotels and B&Bs to ensure a great sojourn in the Eternal City.
Tree Charme is a quaint little hotel overlooking Trastevere’s lovely Ponte Sisto, a walking bridge that leads to Campo de’ Fiori and the historic center of Rome. The four rooms lie within a palazzo from the 1900s and are decorated in an art deco style, creating a refined and romantic atmosphere. The rooms are bright, with crisp linens and touches of teal and green, and breakfast can be enjoyed on the terrace each morning.
This artistic jewel is a real oasis in Trastevere. With only three rooms, Buonanotte Garibaldi offers you an exceedingly intimate and relaxing stay while being strategically located close to all the action of the neighborhood. The bed & breakfast was originally the fiber art studio of Luisa Longo who has since transformed the property into a boutique guesthouse. Her art adorns the walls and the rooms, each of which has a different theme.
For a uniquely Roman experience, why not book a stay within a convent-turned-luxury-hotel? The original 17th century convent was commissioned by Camilla Savelli, a noblewoman who belonged to the important Farnese family, and designed by famed Baroque architect Francesco Borromini. The structure has since been renovated to include 78 unique rooms and nine suites. Donna Camilla Savelli Hotel also has two large terraces overlooking Gianicolo Hill, indoor and outdoor cloisters, and a monumental staircase to reach the second floor.
Domus Monamì is located behind the beautiful Fontanone (Fontana dell’Acqua Paola) on Gianicolo Hill, providing a luxury recluse along with a magnificent view of the city from up high. It has five suites, aptly named after Roman Emperors, furnished with elegant pieces and plenty of Italian taste. Guests can admire the private art collection displayed in the hall gallery and recline amidst antique furniture in the shared living area. The large terrace offers panoramic views of Rome, particularly photogenic at sunrise and sunset.
Relais Le Clarisse is a lovely hotel housed in a 12th century building that belonged to the religious order Le Clarisse. It has an outdoor cloister with a fragrant Mediterranean garden and aims to transmit classic Italian style to guests. The rooms incorporate exposed brick into the walls, cotto tiles on the floor, wrought iron bed frames and Travertino marble in the bathrooms for a tasteful fusion of traditional style and modern comfort. Just three minutes from the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, the location couldn’t be more central.
