The hotel is clean and in good condition. It is not close to the city center, which makes it a nice and relaxing environment away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. It also gave us a wonderful opportunity to navigate Rome's exceptional public transport system (bus and train). If you are also going this route, ensure that you grab... More

My friends and I had booked three nights in this hotel but only stayed one. The hotel is very far from Rome, it's not in the city at all, and there is absolutely no information provided by the hotel as to how to get there. So we had a really difficult time finding this place. Here is the information we... More

It is out of Rome, but there is a bus station at 10 minutes from the hotel, from where you can take the 993 bus which will left you to M. If you don't want to take the bus, a taxi will cost about 25 E to the closest M station-Batistinni. The hotel is very beautiful and very clean. I... More

The initial impression of hotel was fine, located out of town but next to supermarket and an Electrical/clothing store. As our travelling was part of a tour group (50+), the service/restaurant staffs attitude left you feeling that they could not cater for a large group. A real let down was on checking out, the Hotels attitude to guests (as others... More

The Papillo Hotel is really hard to find. The GPS on my iPhone would change the street when I put the address in. We spent an hour looking for it after spotting it from the highway & even had to stop & ask for directions after calling the hotel for more clear directions. Once we finally arrived, we found the...

Crap service. Lousy staff. Obvious racial discrimination. Lousy location. Poor and slow service. Cannot stand such incompetent service staff. If they were in Asia.... Their business would fold in a month.

We went as a tour group for 2 days. We did not get our due internet facility though other people were allowed access. One toddler had made some felt pen marks on a blanket for which 40 euros were charged saying it was a laundry charge. Does that blanket cost so much? After much ado we still had to pay... More
