Lying at the edge of Trastevere, close to the Porta Portese gate in an area that hasn’t (yet) been gentrified, this hotel still has a local feel that has disappeared from much of the neighborhood. All rooms are bright, with color-washed walls and modern tiling. Doubles are fairly small, but the bathrooms are palatial. The grand piano in the lobby adds a touch of old-time charm; a top-floor garden with a cocktail bar overlooks terracotta rooftops and pealing church bell towers. Tip: Book a “charity room,” and the hotel will match your 2€ donation to help Rome’s shelter dogs.
