- Parking On Site
Converted from a 19th-century stone townhouse in a leafy pocket of Rome, a short walk from the city’s hip Trastevere neighborhood, Locanda San Pancrazio is simple, refined and full of character. Large doors open to reveal a tiny but well-conceived black-and-white reception area with high ceilings, pale cream walls, grand mirrors encased in heavy black wood and one simple, cozy chair. Lauded Italian architect Danilo Maglio has made recent updates to the property, creating a classy but homey vibe.
Bed and Bath
An eclectic combination of classic Roman and modern Northern European design, each of the seven guestrooms is unique and features a different color palette. There are common facets in all rooms, such as high ceilings, striped cloth–covered headboards, handcrafted chairs and prominent glass chandeliers. For travelers keen on space, opt for the apartment or the Deluxe Room. Though bathrooms are generally tiny, the space has been well utilized, with walk-in showers (Deluxe Rooms also have a tub), heavy, angular porcelain sinks and large vanity mirrors.
For rest and relaxation (or breakfast on sunny days), head up to the hotel’s rooftop terrace. With a small Jacuzzi and rustic wooden tables and chairs shaded by a sea of greenery, it may make you forget you’re in the heart of bustling Rome. And if things look good now, they’re only going to get better. This summer the new owners will be adding a kitchen to serve food and drinks, and they’ll be covering a portion of the terrace to allow for happy hour drinks year-round.
In the Area
The hotel is a short walk from Trastevere, a hipster ‘hood packed with trendy eateries, bars and nightclubs. Make reservations at Antica Pesa for upscale dining and the occasional celeb sighting. For something more modest, the Fish Market’s seafood-centric menu is hard to beat. Bar-hop along Trastevere’s winding streets, stopping at Freni e Frizioni, a former garage turned cool alfresco bar, and the artisanal beer powerhouse Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fa. Climb Gianicolo Hill for sweeping views of the city, or walk farther afield to tour Rome’s iconic historical sights.
How to Get There
I wish I'd read the reviews before booking. The negative reviews are not unfounded.
No one at reception and no support
Breakfast poor and starts very late which meant in 4 days we only managed to have breakfast once
Terrace has a public bar and we had a party one night and got no sleep until 4am!
No hot water for 1 shower
Soap no restocked
Mosquito ridden and we got bitten really badly.
Pity because the location was really good.
In a night club, paper thin walls, no reception, no hot water and unbearable. I am an easy going traveller and when I read the reviews I thoughts it was a joke. No. This is the worst place I have ever stayed in my my life. You may as we'll hire a locker in the train station. This is a hotel on the outskirts of nowhere who hire the breakfast room out to local events companies / students. OMG!!! This place would be banned from being sheltered accommodation in the UK! Save your money and buy a 6 man tent and sleep behind a wheelie bin
When we arrived there was a private party on the terrace. The girl at the front door could not bother to support us or to give us any information.
Eventually I realized there was an envelope with instruction sticked at the front door, just in front the nice girl.
I was lucky coz I could speak the language, I am pretty sure a non-Italian speaker would not be so lucky.
We went for dinner and we went to sleep.
We did not rest because of the street noise and the chatty chat of what I presume they were the event organizers.
One of them locked his scooter to our window and at 4 o'clock in the morning, the clanking
Very basic breakfast (packed croissants, cereal and toast. No warm food).
눇the location was ok, the lady that served us breakfast was very friendly and so the guy at the reception. the room was cleaned and beds very comfy.
