We spent 3 nights here recently and have to say we lived the hotel. Our room was on the 3rd floor with stunning views overlooking Rome.
Our room was spotless and towells replaced each time we used them. Breakfast was awesome and we ate in the garden each morning which was beautiful. The staff were lovely, efficient, helpful and friendly.
The location of the hotel was perfect for us easy to get to all the places we wanted to visit and lively and vibrant bars and restaurants nearby.
If we have the opportunity to visit Rime again this would be the hotel without any doubt.
Wonderful, secluded hotel in perfect location of Trastavere with quaint cafes and back-alley streets right outside the gate to the hotel. All of the staff were terrific- friendly, professional, helpful, and charming to interact with! The room decor was adorable- especially the furniture knobs that were little oranges; our room and all hotel areas were immaculate and cozy. Especially loved the outdoor garden where we enjoyed the scrumptious breakfast and happy hour each day. Unfortunately didn't have time to use the bicycles, hopefully next time! Also enjoyed Chantel, the sweet golden retriever that Valentina brought to work. Easy 15 minute walk to Vatican city, Castel San Angelo and across the bridge to Jewish Ghetto and right to center of city at the Victor Emmanuel monument. Highly recommend Hotel Santa Maria...5 stars!!
If you are heading to Rome in the heat of the summer this is the perfect hotel; the pool area outweighs any distance to the historical center by far. The bus is very easy to catch; the stop is just around the corner, they run very regularly and it takes between 10-15 minutes to be dropped off right in the heart of the city. The staff are very polite and helpful, and speak English perfectly. There is also a shuttle bus that runs in to town a few times a day. Although we didn't pay to have breakfast, we did order room service a couple of times and the food was excellent.
Nice little place in Trastevere, the staff was always accomodating and friendly. Continental breakfast included. The zone is safe and beautiful, right by the Tevere river which is beautiful to walk by at night. Be aware that the hotel is not reachable by metro, but if you are willing to learn how to go by tram, or (like me) lo e walking, you should be ok

Talk to the manager about the history of the building! Like most of the buildings in Rome, there are many layers and good stories!
The breakfast includes some of the best coffee and baked goods we had while in Rome! I was very impressed with the care that was taken each morning to make such a wonderful spread! They had the nicest towels here!! Almost felt like linen.
We found it easy to walk or take the bus to any part of Rome.
Americans Beware! You must validate (or stamp) your ticket when you use transportation. They are overly dramatic in Italy if they find you with a ticket that has not been stamped.

Charming and professional staff, good sized rooms, very roomy bathrooms. Within 20 minutes walking from the old city of Rome, and located in a wonderful part of town across the Tiber River. Fabulous food within easy walking. Interesting older part of town.
A Trastevere da M.E., conveniently located in the heart of the Trastevere neighborhood, went far beyond our expectations. Not only was the location ideal if you're a foodie and looking to enjoy some of the most authentic Roman restaurants in the city, but the staff also went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Special thanks in particular to Michaela, who was able to accommodate an additional night's stay for us at Trastevere da M.E. after our return flight to the U.S. was cancelled. This certainly made things much easier for us in light of what was a very stressful situation--Michaela, grazie mille di nuovo dell'ottima accoglienza ricevuta durante il nostro soggiorno! Further, the rooms were generously spacious with modern and recently renovated bathrooms, and the beds were very comfortable. In sum, an excellent hotel with my highest recommendation--if I could give it a higher rating, I would in a heartbeat! I very much look forward to my next stay at A Trastevere da M.E.
Across the River Tiber, Trastevere is a well-established 'boho chic' quarter, full of local character. The patchwork of tiny, cobbled streets houses many bars, good restaurants and buzzing nightlife spots. There is also a treasure trove of medieval churches. In its own piazza, the beautiful Santa Maria in Trastevere has shimmering golden mosaics and was probably Rome's first Christian basilica, founded in 222 AD.
