Beautiful neighborhood, we visited during Fall when the leaves were still green and the Roman light crisp and golden hued. It's vibrant.
Great value, the hotel staff is friendly and attentive. We had a standard room on the second floor with a window overlooking the courtyard; it was clean, comfortable, quiet, and small. Breakfast is excellent.
Sightseeing, very easy to get to all the spots by taking the tram to Piazza Argentina, or the subway line at the Piramide stop. Rome is easy to navigate on foot too, follow the signs that mark walking paths.
Shopping, go to Porta Portese--the ancient Roman flea market--on Sunday when everything else remains closed. I bought a dress, sweater, bag, and shoes and thought about getting a suitcase.
Nightlife, many restaurants with prized outside tables and reasonable prices. Cheap eats at the cross streets of Trastevere and San Francesco a Ripa, where old men stand behind the counter and serve the food--grab a ticket and order several pizza and wine for lunch.
Neighborhood secret, go to see Bernini's statue to Ludovica Albertoni next door. It's gorgeous.
This is probably one of the biggest hotel secrets in Rome. I lived in Roma for three years and ALWAYS put my guests in this hotel. When I fly to Rome each year to teach at an American university there, I always stay my first night at Hotel San Francesco. It's centrally located with easy access to most of Rome's famous sites. It's also within walking distance to the charming Trastevere, the famous medieval section of Rome. There you'll find more restaurants than you can count, and some great wine bars. Hotel San Francesco is a beautifully appointed, small, intimate hotel with a modern interior and an ancient exterior. It was built sometime around the 12th Century. The church that stands immediately beside it is purported to have been the pulpit from which Saint Frances of Assisi was to have conducted masses during his stay in Rome. You won't regret your stay in this hotel. It's as enjoyable as Rome is!
