We stayed in Hotel Paba in November 2011 for our first trip to Rome - three night stay. We wanted to experience Italy by staying in a privately run, small hotel. This hotel was recommended in the Rick Steeve's book. The entrance to the hotel rom the street is unassuming; the hotel is located on the third floor of an apartment building, which I understand is typical or Italy. Alberta, the host and hotelier was wonderful. We stayed in the room closest to the front desk, but there was no noise or distractions. Alberta was informative but never intrusive, and happily provided information concerning the metro, buses, restaurants and the like.
The room was ample, the bed comfortable and the bathroom was bigger than we expected. There was a nice sized shower and we never ran out of hot water. A lovely breakfast was served in the room each morning.The room was very clean.
There is probably not a better location in Rome. It was within 100 yards of a train station which we took to the Vatican. Almost everything is within walking distance and the colliseum is literally steps away. It is a vibrant street. We went to a restaurant on the same side, down the street, whose name escapes me, but it was open late with a local crowd and we enjoyed some great pizza and good pasta dishes. We shared a table with an Italian couple and it was a wonderful experience.
When we go back to Rome, we will definitely stay at Hotel Paba. Its location, price and host combine for a memorable experience!! Plan to stay at the Hotel Paba and you will not be disappointed.
