Hotel Ponte Sisto
Travel Blogs from Rome
... as well I can tell you... After finally leaving the Colosseum, we called past the hotel to "regroup" and headed out to get a coffee & a bite to eat, and experienced the next " interesting" event of the day!! We could see more weather brewing, so decided to stop at a cafe with large permanent umbrellas. We ordered & proceeded to watch the heavens open. Rain, wind, thunder lightening, you name it, we had it. People were running everywhere, including jumping in ...
... just couldn’t see it for a while. Farther along there were a few wide ramp-like entries where the bicyclists could easily access this bike path.
Just where the Olympic stadium and buildings begin, there’s a beautiful pedestrian bridge called Ponte della Musica, very modern looking with bold white sweeping steel arches. The very next bridge, the Ponte Duca d’Aosta, was named after a WWI hero and at the entrance to the bridge there ...
... beyond belief. Same with the square, it can fit 300 000 people standing on any given day. It was a cool feeling to be standing in the square looking back at the church and imagining how many important things have been said there through our history by any given Pope. Again despite your beliefs, there's no denying the Catholic Church has been and is very powerful. Moving out of the Vatican we boarded the metro with the locals and got off at Spagna. It was time for ...
... Monteforte for chocolate chip gelato for Abby and a granita di caffe con panna (iced coffee with whipped cream). As if the night couldn't get any better, we stopped at a supermarket on the way home and got a bottle of wine. We were planning on going to drink it at a park and when we were passing the Castle of St. Angelo we saw a sign saying there were going to be fireworks in around 45 minutes. We tried to find ...
... of pastry and coffee. The most adorable little café, moth watering custard pastry, and entertainment to boot! The little baker man came out with a cd player, and starts his cd of classical Italian music. He quickly stops it, realising he’s put the wrong cd in, and the next thing that’s blaring form the speakers is Stayin Alive from Saturday Night Fever!! The funniest thing ever as he dances around the café John Travolta style!!!! Too ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ponte Sisto Rome
Being as the entrance is in an Alley, one could be taken aback for a moment but this hotel is great once you get through the Glass Doors, the friendly staff, lovely breakfasts in the courtyard, free internet and comfortable bed are all ones needs. The doorman is very attentive and helpful and the left just down the street is the Campo de Flori with its restaurants, morning market and evening entertainers. A few blocks farther is Piazza Navona. In the other direction is the Ponte Sisto Bridge and more narrow streets with cafes and churches. One really has to watch the traffic in this area as there are 5 way intersections and short blocks with little space for strolling.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ponte Sisto Rome
Great Location, Great Hotel
This hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to almost every important sight in Rome. Have to take cab or bus to Via Vento area. We found the hotel very, very nice, the staff extremely helpful and all in all the experience great. Would say again.
Lots to like
This hotel has a good location for both the famous sights and Trastevere, elegant interiors, and helpful, friendly staff. The shower in the marble bathroom was excellent! Try ReservationItaly for discounted rates.
I cannot tell you how overjoyed we were with the Hotel Ponte Sisto. We spent ten days there, from Dec. 25, 2003 through Jan. 3, 2004. It surpassed all of our expectations, which were quite high to begin with.
Ponte Sisto Is Top Notch
Great hotel, great location. Comfortable room and friendly people. I don't want to say too much or there won't be room next time I head to Rome. Definitely will want to stay at Hotel Ponte Sisto again.
The hotel also made it into the new Access Guide.
Overbooking at Ponte Sisto
I booked this hotel for a family wedding in Rome.We were required to leave half way through the booked period due presumably to overbooking which was known to the hotel but we were not advised until we were unceremoniously told to exit at short notice.A fax seeking explanation was ignored. Other family members staying elsewhere in Rome who came to the hotel looking for those who had to move were not even informed of details of the hotel we had been moved to.I would not recommend this hotel to anyone mainly in view of the arrogance of reception staff.

Super hotel, super location
We stayed in this hotel in October, and it was the nicest hotel we've ever been to. Beautiful atmosphere and very high servicelevel. Superb position in the heart of the ancient Rome, just a few passes from Campo de' Fiori. For information we found this hotel at very convenient rate on the web site of Reservationitaly.
My wife and I found this hotel by sheer chance, while we were wandering through the narrow streets of ancient Rome, close to Campo di Fiori. A friendly lady at the front desk was kind enough to show us a suite and quote a rate for us and we decided we would book the suite upon our return from Florence and Siena. Well, our first impression proved us right, anb we intend to make this hotel our "pied a terre" in Rome. The location is perfect for us. Right across the Ponte Sisto bridge from Trastevere and all its wonderful restaurants, a couple of blocks off Campo di Fiori and its daily extravaganzas and a short stroll away from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, this hotel sits in a narrow street and shows a somewhat unremarkable facade, but our suite was the most comfortable we have had for that price in Rome, and very quiet. This was, for sure, one of our great finds in our most recent trip to Italy.
Location, location, location
On of the most convenient hotels in Rome for exploring the ancient city on foot. Close to all the major landmarks and the restaurants of the Campo de Fiori. All this and charm! Wonderful stay.
Eines der angenehmsten Hotels in Rom für alle, die die historische Stadt zu Fuß erkunden möchten. In der Nähe von allen wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten und den Restaurants des Campo de Fiori. All das und jede Menge Ausstrahlung! Wunderbarer Aufenthalt.
Luxury in an idealistic setting
Stayed here in May 2003 in a suite with my wife.Cross the bridge (Ponte Sisto) and you are in an very traditional part of town with a lot of restaurants and great atmosphere. The hotelroom was luxurious, and they have a beautifull centercourt for some relaxing before you hit the city, the monuments and the art.Breakfast could use a bit more variety , but hey, I'm from Flanders - Belgium and we set a very high standard on meals.Hotel Ponte Sisto : Warmly recommended.Peter.
