Hotels “Affordable Europe”
“From within the butter-hued walls of the verdant courtyard at Relais le Clarisse, the lively streets of downtown Rome seem a world away. But this remodeled former cloister in the bohemian Trastevere neighborhood is still just a short walk from the heart of the city. Blond-wood furniture and wrought-iron beds give the five rooms a warm, residential feel While all of them flank the sun-soaked courtyard, the Rose suite has its own vestibule and tall, vaulted ceilings. In the evening, stroll through the cobblestoned streets and do as Trastevereans do: pause for an aperitivo.”
