We had 4 nights in this hotel. While it was adequate, we wished we'd spent more money for better accom. The air con was incredibly noisy and the heat in August that week required it's use consistently. Rooms are fine as are the bathroom facilities - but they are old and rundown. Clean and comfortable but only adequate. Small rooms... More

I stayed at the Carmel Hotel 2 of my 5 nights in Rome. While I loved Trastevere and wished I had stayed there the entire time, I found the hotel to be just adequate. There was nothing bad about it, but relative to my other Roman hotel and other lodging in Florence and Venice, I thought the quality relative to... More

I was so disappointed with this hotel after choosing it based on reviews on Tripadvisor. I had booked ( and paid for) a double room but was allocated a shabby single room next to the breakfast room and adjacent to the kitchen. There was only one curtain on the window, which was hanging off the rail. No idea what happened... More

The room was small and the bathroom tiny, barely room to turn around in. But it was clean and comfortable and the breakfast room was charming. The cornflakes however tasted a bit stale.

Great value, OK location, clean rooms. Don't expect it to be luxurious - it is a "1 star hotel" after all. But it's got everything you need (including free wifi - albeit in the lounge + dining room), and nicer than a lot of 3 star hotels I've seen.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
