Roof terrace with beautiful view and peaceful courtyard
Via Garibaldi 27
Built within the walls of an old convent from the 17th century, 4-star hotel Donna Camilla Savelli contrasts the architecture of a bygone age with elegantly furnished rooms. Spacious accommodations beneath original wood-beam ceilings, earthenware floors, long covered corridors, arched doorways and a quaint cellar vault all preserve a sense of historical charm. 78 rooms and suites in total, each individually furnished, are available to choose from at the Donna Camilla Savelli. For common use: a panorama roof terrace and beautiful courtyard with cactus and palm trees, where a generous breakfast starts off the day.
City: A peaceful stay in lively Trastevere
The Donna Camilla Savelli is located on a small hill in the Trastevere district; this part of the city lies on the shore of the Tiber across from the old city center with the Collosseum, Circus Maximus and Forum Romanum. A lively and beloved area, the Trastevere is full of countless businesses, bars and cafes, well-suited for a walking tour: historical buildings, typical Roman squares, cobblestone streets and narrow alley walls mark the district’s picturesque face. At night, the hotel is very quiet, though it makes a good starting point for investigating the district’s nightlife and cuisine.
Historical: Elegant interior in historical architecture
Long ago, the Donna Camilla Savelli was an important city nunnery. In one wing, there are still a few nuns living in the building, and a beautiful chapel is located within the hotel grounds. The expertly renovated building exudes a dignified aura: large paintings and sculptures, stained glass and original earthenware floors, premium wood panelling and heavy silk curtains in the halls.
Romantic: Top comfort and nostalgic furnishings
This hotel is a great choice for romantic travelers to Rome with an interest in history and culture. The intimate rooms are furnished in a sleek, partly rustic style. Each room is equipped with individually-suited antique dressers, bureaus, and a nostalgic bed. Modern amenities such as a flatscreen TV and comfortable bathroom are included.
Food & Drink: Large breakfast in the garden or on the rooftop terrace
From a finely decorated rooftop terrace, guests at the Donna Camilla Savelli enjoy a magnificent panorama view of the city. In summer, an ample breakfast is served here or in the cozy courtyard: eggs, cheese, prosciutto, salami, cake, muffins, croissants and above all typical Italian coffee make a perfect start to the day. At night, countless restaurants in the immediate area offer diverse dining options.
Athletics & Leisure: Sightseeing, shopping, eating out
Rome’s Bohemians live in the Trastevere district: the streets are full of trattorias, bars and exclusive boutiques. Definitely worth a visit: the nearby weekly Porta Portese flea market, as well as the botanical gardens. The Ponte Sisto bridge leads to the historical city center, a beautiful walk leading directly to the Vatican.
Location: On the left shore of the Tiber in Trastevere
The Vatican is a 10-minute walk from the hotel, along the banks of River Tiber. The historic centre of Rome is just across Sisto Bridge. The Donna Camilla Savelli is situated in the beloved Trastevere district on the western shore of the Tiber River, directly by the botanical gardens.
