Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A historic monastery turned boutique hotel
  • Located in a peaceful garden setting, close to restaurants and bars
  • Historic touches throughout, such as wood-beamed ceilings and marble floors
  • The leafy outdoor courtyard provides a relaxing spot for summer breakfasts or evening cocktails
  • A rooftop terrace with views, though it lacks seating
  • A generous breakfast included with the rate
  • Spacious rooms have antique-style furniture, minibars, flat-screen TVs, and bathrobes
  • Free parking, and Wi-Fi in the lobby

Cons

  • Some rooms lack natural light
  • Wi-Fi is not available in rooms
  • Far from most tourist sights

Bottom Line

This elegant, 78-room boutique hotel is located in the Trastevere neighborhood on the right bank of the Tiber River, a bit far from most tourist sights. Lovers of history will likely appreciate the 17th century monastery setting, designed by a well-known Baroque architect and featuring wood-beamed ceilings, arched hallways, and marble floors. Rooms have antique-style furniture (though some bedding is slightly dated rather than charmingly old-world), as well as flat-screen TVs, minibars, spacious bathrooms, and bathrobes. The rooftop terrace offers outstanding panoramic views of the neighborhood, but it lacks seating areas. Those who want to relax outside will have to make do with the pretty courtyard garden on ground level. This is where the free breakfast can be enjoyed in summer months, as well as cocktails in the evening (there is no full restaurant on-site). Parking is free, and Wi-Fi is available in the lobby at no additional charge -- but it's not available in rooms at all.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A peaceful location in the heart of trendy Trastevere, close to restaurants and bars

This former monastery is located on the right bank of the Tiber River, within a 30-minute walk of many attractions, including Vatican City. For a slightly longer walk, guests can head across the Sisto Bridge to access the sights of Old Rome, including the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and Spanish Steps. Taxis can be arranged by asking a member of staff, and the Carabinieri Metro Station is located near the hotel, as well. Though Donna Camilla Savelli is in the Trastevere neighborhood -- a lively hub for shops, restaurants and bars -- the premise feels like a peaceful respite with its leafy courtyard settings. (Make sure to check out the rooftop terrace for photo ops.) On Sundays, there is a nearby outdoor market featuring local vendors.

  • 9-minute drive or 20-minute walk to the Pantheon
  • 10-minute drive or 22-minute walk to the Colosseum
  • 11-minute drive or 31-minute walk to the Roman Forum
  • 11-minute drive or 31-minute walk to the Trevi Fountain
  • 13-minute drive or 35-minute walk to the Spanish Steps
  • 13-minute drive or 35-minute walk to Palazzo Barberini
  • 15-minute drive or 37-minute walk to the Opera House
  • 15-minute drive or 37-minute walk to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore
  • 17-minute drive or 38-minute walk to Santa Maria degli Angeli
  • 17-minute drive or 38-minute walk to the Baths of Diocletian
  • 35-minute drive to Rome Ciampino International Airport
  • 46-minute drive to Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport
