First let me say that our hosts were beyond accommodating since our flights from the U.S. kept getting delayed and changed and our phone messages and emails updating them of the situation were spotty at best. They had arranged a car service to pick us up so staying in contact was critical. They were the best. They stayed until midnight... More

What can we say that hasn't already been said! This wonderfully quaint, 4 room, guest house is in the absolute most perfect location just off Via Del Corso. We were literally minutes, and I mean minutes, from the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Victor Emmanuelle Museum, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum, and Coliseum! Caterina and her staff are truly wonderful and... More

We recently stayed here after deciding this area was the best for our 3 day tour of Rome, and boy was I correct! This hotel is in THE PERFECT area to see all the major Piazza's and statues, as well as being 15 minutes away from the Colosseum, which you should walk to. However, if you want, right across the...

La Papessa is a fantastic location. We had never been to Rome, and after all options decided here. Lorodana was our hostess and sweet, kind and helpful. The hotel is small, 4 rooms, and there IS and elevator so that helps. It's clean, the beds are basic but comfortable and very big, w good AC and breakfast is included. The... More

It is a small hotel, with only 4 rooms. Close to Fountain Trevi, less than 500m. Caterina is very kind and was in contact with us, we arrived very late. It is an old roman building in Via Corso, down town. Very convenient to be in the centre close to Navona Plazza, Plaza España, Coliseum... I recommend you!

We picked the hotel for its central location for exploring Rome, and were not disappointed. Most of Rome's key sights are within walking distance, particularly the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and Pantheon. What turned out to be a pleasant surprise was how warm and welcoming our hosts were. They really made us feel comfortable and took extra time to give... More

Ideally located for being close to anything in Rome, both turistic attractions and shopping Very nice staff, clean room and fair rates Taxi and bus station nearby, caffetaria, restaurants and a supermarket 3 minutes away by foot. Went with some friends, had a room for three and we found no inconveniences with it

We all travel with different needs. The constant I wanted coming from the USA was friendly and helpful hosts in the cities we chose to visit as first time visitors. With La Papessa, you get that. Both Caterina and Loredana are very helpful and easy to make arrangements with, given your particular travel arrangements before and during your visit. We... More

I booked two nights in La Pappessa for an aniversary trip for my parents. They don't travel very often and were a bit worried about traveling by themselves. However Caterina was so helpful and made them feel so welcome. The Room was lovely and in a great location.

La Papessa is a 4-room B&B centrally located 5 minutes away from Trevi Fountain, close to other attractions, and very well communicated through the buses network (there's a stop in front).

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
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.
