Property Description

Please note that check-in takes place at the following address: Via Paolina, 20, at my cafe.

Established in 1990, Rose Santa Maria has come to be one of the most popular accommodations in Rome and a well-known place to stay for young travelers. Since its opening it has been recommended in all the main guide books.

The structure is located in Rione Monti, a lively neighborhood close to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Just down the hill you will find the charming cobble-stone streets, Monti proper, complete with fountain for nighttime gatherings. A trendy area, it boasts artisan and vintage shops, a plethora of dining options and cafes, and bustling crowds comprised of residents, artists, tourists, and other colorful folk.

Rose Santa Maria is a calm, clean, budget-friendly place to crash in the heart of Rome. It is located on the fourth floor of a 19th-century close to Via Cavour, one of Rome’s main roads. Despite being a small property, with no common room and no kitchen, our guests appreciate the cozy, homey atmosphere.

Several transport options, such as metro, buses, trams, taxi stands, and tour buses, are at your fingertips. Rose Santa Maria is easily accessible from Termini central train station, just a few minutes' walk from the structure. Termini hosts bus and train transport to and from Rome's airports.

Thank you and enjoy Rome.

    This is a great, affordable place to stay and I recommend it to everyone! Franco, the man who owns the building, is extremely kind and helpful. We had a checkout at 10am on Thursday, however, our flight wasn’t until 8pm. Franco was kind enough to let us keep the room until our flight at no extra cost. I highly recommend this place to everyone! As for location, couldn’t be better. Only about a 15 min walk to the Coliseum, etc. Also tons of restaurants nearby. Thanks Franco for an amazing stay! -James

    For the price range it’s definitely a really good option, really convenient and near the hub of transportation of Rome, Termini. The rooms like all Rome are old but with good maintenance everything works. The staff Franco is really easy going and it’s always available.

    This is such a great place to stay. The location is great, the man that runs it is an angel however keep in mind there are a lot of stairs to walk up depending on what floor your room is on and it’s a bit outdated. But the beds are comfy and everything is in working order. I really loved my stay here.

    My friend and I stayed at Rose Santamaria for a week and had a wonderful time! The room was located very central and close to the Colosseum, all the attractions and highlights of the city were within walking distance. Franco kindly showed us the room and was always available, (either in his café nearby, or by text). I would definitely book again when I visit Rome again. Ciao!

    Hard to find the location. You must call the owner to get your keys so do not come earlier. You also need to remind them a few times if you need something. Great location and within walking distance of a couple of the attractions.

    Unbeatable location for the price and a very nice man who runs it! Not having a kitchen was a bit tough, but I knew that going in. Also, I couldn’t get the shower to get hot. Other than that, I had a good experience. I was able to walk everywhere and felt very safe in the area.
