“Great hotel!!!”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I traveled to this hotel with my boyfriend in January 2014. We were only in Rome for 1 weekend, and this hotel was really fantastic. The owner was extremely sweet and helpful - she even brought us breakfast to our room in the morning! The location was perfect - we could walk to all the major sites. It was even an easy 20 minute walk from Termini station (where you get dropped off from the airport with the Leonardo Express). Our room at night was very quiet and peaceful, even though the street was pretty lively (lots of choices for restaurants / bars). I would DEFINITELY stay at this hotel again, and would recommend it to any friend traveling to Rome in the future.

A nice little hotel in a great location close to the Roman Forum and Colosseum. There are two metro stations within walking distance of the hotel. The rooms are clean, and the bed was huge. The lady who runs the hotel is really nice and very helpful. We had a late flight in to Rome and she stayed back late until 11pm to make sure we checked in to our room. The breakfast is served in your room and is always fresh. A very pleasant hotel.

A quaint and cozy hotel located conveniently just around the corner from the Colosseo and Forum. The proprietor, Alberta is a sage but quite friendly elderly woman who will provide guidance on the sights and how best to get around the city. She even secured a very reasonably priced airport shuttle for our departure (at 3 am). Breakfast (fresh large croissants, toast, and another bread of some type) is served in your spacious (for Rome) room. Though it faces the busy Via Cavour the double paned windows seal out most of the noise. Prices are fair.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have larger bathrooms, some are like closets.

My husband and I stayed here in December 2011, and we had an incredible time in Rome & this hotel was certainly one of them. The place is run by a little elderly lady who checked us in & made our breakfast daily. The croissant was the most delicious breakfast pastry - I still dream about it. I Fresh juice & coffee every morning - i agree that I felt like i was staying at an old italian home complete with the authentic grandmother and all...the whole experience was so authentic. Ask her to recommend a "REAL" italian meal that locals would enjoy. We did, and it was by far the best meal we had in Rome. She actually had to write us a note to hand the hostess so that we could get a table - we felt special! the room was large with a balcony that looked onto the street...private bathroom...everything was clean..if you're looking for fancy, this isn't it, but if you're wanting an authentic experience, this is a great value. Doesn't hurt that the coliseum is around the corner!

Room Tip: ask for the room with a balcony, i don;t think they all have one.

We spent 2 days in this great little place. Its a nice, clean, quaint hotel in a great location. 5-7 mins from the metro and very close to the colloseo. The hotel is run by an excellent elderly lady. Small, warm and cosy place and the only thing the place lacked was a better breakfast. BTW.. Don't miss the unique lift..we'd never seen the likes of it even in India.

The location is close to the coliseum and many major sites. The rooms are nice and the service is great. The complimentary breakfast is good and it's like being taken care of by your grandma. A wonderful experience of Rome

We stayed for five nights at the precious Hotel Paba, located minutes from the Coliseum, the Forum and the subway to gain access to all that Rome has to offer. Our room was larger than we expected - we got the family room with an additional bedroom that was great for our luggage. Madame Alberta, the owner, works seven days a week because she takes pride in her hotel. She personally delivers breakfast to your room and makes sure that everything is to your delight. She is completely familiar with Rome and gives great advice about local treasures that may not be in your guidebook or are in the book, but not so interesting. She speaks six languages so no matter where you are from, Madame can help you. We would go back in a heartbeat. The hotel was clean, had free WiFI, TV (who watches TV whilst in Rome?), coffee or tea any time of the day and the best location one could imagine. Thank you Madame Alberta. A bien tot!

Room Tip: The windows had double pane glass so it was always quiet at night with the windows closed.
