A perfect location for anyone seeking luxury in the heart of Rome.  Hotel Ponte Sisto is located on a quiet street that in one direction leads you across Ponte Sisto into the characteristic quarter of Trastevere.  In the other direction, one can reach Campo dei Fiori and Piazza Navona within minutes.


I have terrific memories of this hotel – memories that date back four decades when it was a much simpler pensione.  I lived here with my family for six months and remember with fondness the warm hospitality – and the patience – the staff showed our large family.  The hospitality is as warm as ever; the creature comforts have multiplied over the years.  The hotel has been renovated more than once and is now a 4-star hotel, which merits every one of those stars.  The rooms are beautifully decorated, the bathrooms sumptuous.  The breakfast buffet is a great way to start one’s day and it is always nice to come back “home” to Ponte Sisto – it was forty years ago and still is today!
