“Not a 3 star hotel by a long shot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

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. The carpets were old and worn. No room safe. Very, very, very small shower. The hotel staff was indifferent. That being said, the location is excellent. It is a 5 minute walk to the Termini train and subway station. The rooms were clean and the beds were serviceable. It is a cheap place to stay in Rome. It is okay if you don't expect much.

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 had to knock a few times to wake the attendant up- after we waited at the front desk for him to wake up we got to our room, stayed about 2 mins- long enough to take photos and book another hotel... not a proper mattress its about 75mm thick- not on a proper base, its just a fold out, where the carpet isn't ripped its stained- the room stank of air freshener (an entire can)... could go on but its just crap

Room Tip: AVOID, just stay somewhere else

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 air con was either freezing or off, the shower was over the toilet, there was no breakfast (as advertised on their website), and the room was extremely small. The ugly - the wallpaper was furry (I kid you not) and the decor hasn't been updated since the 70s.
This is not a 3 star hotel - maybe a 1 star.

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 period. Trip Advisor needs to look into this Hotel because the Web site is nothing like the actual Hotel. I personally DONOT recommend this Hotel to anyone.

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 had visible dirt marks. We didn't stay there.

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 do not put 3 stars on their sign in entry way, must be Rome tourist board doesn't let them. First off, the room is about 7X10 ft(not exaggerating).Shower area is tiny and you are touching the shower curtain always, yuck. Dirty carpets and walls and fridge. All they have to do is replace some things and clean. No breakfast as advertised. Nice view of Baths of Diocleziano next door and very easy walk to Termini. Shame they don't try a little harder, it would be easy fixes.
