A nice cosy hotel near the Vatican. Importantly, the service and dedication of the staff is commendable. My wife had left her wallet in the hotel and the staff made all efforts to ensure that we got it back in a different country (they were even prepared to drive to our airport if necessary, although it was too late by...

Very friendly staff who are always willing to do something extra (information/arrange/sort out). Located on the 3-the floor of a building in a quiet street close to the Vatican, within walking distance of shopping streets, restaurants and more busy/lively streets. Neat bathroom and room, so to see recently renewed. Small and cosy, with attention from the staff, making you feel... More

We caught the Sip bus from Fiumicino and walked from the stop near Piazza Cavour - only 15 mins... More

Tiny b&b in an excellent location, perfect for the Vatican! Staff are all excellent and willing to help. Rooms spotless but in need of slight improvement- cracked bathroom tiles and such. Biggest downfall is breakfast- far too limited options could do with improvement.

After looking for a while on trip advisor & various other sites for our trip to Rome, we came across Papavista & what a little find!! After booking we had a welcome email with lots of information on how to get to the hotel by using train, bus or organising a taxi for you. We chose the taxi route in... More

This little B&B is a diamond in the rough! Stayed in a corner room (Room 302). Pros: You can see the entrance to the Vatican Museum from your window. A two minute walk. Breakfast served in the breakfast room or brought to your room (all included in the price!) For Europe, the rooms were fairly large. Hotel is on 3rd... More

A great B&B that is good enough to merit a boutique hotel description. Great location, ever so friendly staff and a great location for Vatican area visiting. A number of good little personal touches and satisfying breakfast.

Thank you for the wonderful welcome and the provision of everything we needed for the 4 day visit. The hotel is only a few steps away from the Vatican and all the sites worth a visit. The service was friendly and cosy. All the information you need is available and WiFi in the room. Walked to most places and David... More
