What a lovely place to stay. My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night break and were extremely happy with our choice to accommodation. We did have a little problem with the taxi transfer that we had arranged via La Papessa but after a phone call it was sorted quickly, It is 50 Euro to get a... More

We stayed in the annex in La Papessa, and had a wonderful two nights. We arrived late in Rome at 10pm due to a flight delay, and Caterina still met us outside, took us up to our room, and took the time to show us around the B&B as well as our room and orient us to Rome on their... More

we stayed here in April. The location was brilliant. The staff were very nice and gave us great tips on how to see the sights without waiting in huge lines! The room itself was nice. The bed was good, the bathroom clean but a little small. The shower was very tight in particular. Breakfast was OK also. As we were... More

The ladies who run it are lovely and very helpful. The breakfast is just okay. I will definitely return and have recommended it to all my friends.

La Papessa was the perfect place to stay for our time in Rome. It is in the perfect location close to everything. We felt right at home there and loved the cozy rooms with beautiful antiques, high ceilings and beams that were hand painted. Breakfast was very good and the owner is very helpful with tickets and directions. I would... More

Great small hotel in the heart of Rome, we really enjoyed our stay here! As in many small hotels in Rome, there are no big signs on the street telling where the hotel is actually located, so you just have to rely on the address telling you to the right door. Or if you use the transportation service they offer... More

La Papessa Pros: Location - near the Trevi Fountain and Altare della Patria (which can be visually located from many places throughout Rome) on Via Del Corso which a very busy and affordable shopping area. I can't say enough about the location. It was perfect for us. Hospitality - top notch. Personal attention in the morning during the free breakfast.... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
