We were there in the first week of October 2013. The location was excellent, a short walk from the central train station Roma Termini. Also, the area with a neighborhood market in the mornings is fine. But we should have taken the time to find a different place after the first night, because our room just smelled very badly, like...

If you can afford a better hotel, book it. If you can't, Hotel Pavia will do. When we booked online, it was advertised as a 3 star hotel. Not by a long shot. It is a 1 or 2 star hotel at best. Motel 6 in the USA offers more and better accommodations. No breakfast available. No A/C!!! No elevator.... More

We arrived to Rome termini without a hotel reservation. After searching a lot this was our only choice for the night. The room was dirty and really small. Next day we booked to another hotel that it was way too better and cheap. Take this hotel only if you have no choice and only for 1 night.

We also booked this hotel on Hotwire, but unfortunately could not afford to move to a different hotel. We booked for 3 nights. The good - it is very close to the train station and there is wi-fi. The bad - it was extremely dirty and we were surprised we didn't get bed bugs (we were in room 35). The... More

Booked thru Hotwire. Checked in at the dirty ran down non polite desk. Walked up two flights of dirt soaked stairs. Opened our door and about gagged. Room light switch hanging on wall, DIRT everywhere and scum on shower floor. Called and fought with Hotwire about complete refund. Checked out as soon as we checked in. Horrible place to stay...

Bought this hotel on Hotwire expecting a 3-star hotel. When we arrived, the hotel was filthy dirty. We had to carry our luggage up the stairs to arrive in a dirty room. The bathroom was awful. There was still shower gel on the sink and shower. The bedroom was heavily soiled. The carpet hadn't been vacuumed in months. The walls... More

stayed 2 nights May 8-10. It is old, dusty, run down, broken down. It does not take much to make me happy with a hotel room. I have stayed in backpack type places in Central America and Asia. I do not need more than a decent place to rest after touring for the day. Advertised as 3 star but they... More

I stayed a total of 4 nights at hotel Pavia, first in tiny room 35 where you basically shower on top of the toilet, the mattress is very hard and the blankets are dirty. Then I was moved to room 33 - it's a triple room. Every day I would wake up with a few bites but since it was... More

Having booked The Pavia for my friend and I mainly for its location and price, we were somewhat taken aback when we read some of the adverse comments listed on your web site; we were not looking forward to staying at this hotel. On arrival we found this small family run hotel within easy walking distance of the main station... More
