Really friendly staff who pointed out all the best places to visit. Gorgeous breakfast and lovely room - very impressive shower! Close enough to the centre of Rome to walk to all the main sites or catch the bus /tram. We walked everywhere! Close to fabulous food area where you can have amazing food at reasonable prices. Loved our stay!
Upon arrival the front desk staff (wish I knew the woman's name-but she only works in the morning) was going to allow another guest to check in before me, so that irritated me. The guest had to point out that i was standing the.
The room was spacious, had a balcony, and large tub/shower. I had no idea that you had to use European outlets to charge your phone (FYI first time Americans). The other front desk staff was very helpful and told me where I could purchase one. They also do not have irons (another surprise).You also have to check your key every time you leave the hotel. This didn't bother me but took some getting used to. The breakfast was pretty good with a really decent selection (pastries, cheese, Turkey deli meat, eggs, bacon, and cappuccino ). The hotel is pretty close to the bus or tram. Overall, it was a good hotel with a couple of glitches.
Modern, clean and comfortable. Very convenient stay whilst attending a conference at the University of Archeology just across the river. Beware evening noise from bar below that goes on until 1am even at weekdays.

Like many low-price B&B's, La Civetta has no street presence other than a buzzer at a door, and the desk is not staffed continuously through the day. So it's important to be in email contact with the host to agree on an arrival time, and to have their phone number in case your plans change. The elevator is unusual--it runs up the middle of the courtyard of the building stopping at catwalks between stories, so there are a few steps that have to be climbed or descended after you exit from the elevator. My room was wonderful--clean, bright, and modern, with brand-new bathroom facilities, good wi-fi connectivity, and excellent air conditioning. The breakfast room was right next door; both open en suite onto the "reception desk," actually just a small room with a table and computer. Walls and floors are thick and solid, so the soundproofing is good. Street noise from my second-story window was a consideration, but this is a quiet street compared to most in Rome.
Across the River Tiber, Trastevere is a well-established 'boho chic' quarter, full of local character. The patchwork of tiny, cobbled streets houses many bars, good restaurants and buzzing nightlife spots. There is also a treasure trove of medieval churches. In its own piazza, the beautiful Santa Maria in Trastevere has shimmering golden mosaics and was probably Rome's first Christian basilica, founded in 222 AD.
