Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Paba Rome
Great Clean Centrally Located Hotel
This was the first hotel that we stayed at in Italy. It was a great place to relax after a long trip. The hotel is clean and the service is friendly. We did have to move around a bit, but the rooms were spacious and in a great location. A little, expensive for backpackers like us, but reasonable. Loved the wood floors, made it feel cleaner still!
We spent 3 nights at Hotel Paba & liked the location, super friendly staff, ok breakfast (Italian breakfast's are lacking) but the only problem that I found was almost intolerable was the bed. Rock hard! The bed would be the only reason I would not return.
It was not what we expected...
This 2 star hotel is ok, but the biggest problem was the noise from the reception. Other problem: the towels were not changed every day; they also had some stains.
By the web site, it's not possible to know that the hotel has only 7 rooms and occupies the half of the second floor (it's almost a "pensione").
The breakfast was not what we expected, because it was completly "industrial", I mean, there was no natural stuff, like fruits, for exemple.
The location is really good, near Colosseo and old center of Rome.
But the rate is very expensive (128 euros/night), considering the few benefits.
Sra. Alberta (we believe she's the owner) was friendly and helpful.
Great Location for Seeing the Sights
We recently spent two nights at the Hotel Paba in Rome. It has a great location, convient from the train station and also within walking distance of many of the tourists sights. Alberta Castelli, was very helpful during our stay. She took good care of us and her English was far better than our Italian!!!
Hotel Paba a Roman treasure
On a friend's recommendation, we contacted Signora Castelli for our recent one-week stay in Rome. She was welcoming, helpful, and the most gracious host anyone could hope for. Her English is excellent, her advice always right on, and our room was large and comfortable with amenities and service exceeding the alotted two stars. We felt safe, comfortable and pampered. The location couldn't be better for tourists and those wanting to stray from the book - convenient to the metro as well, and no more than a 10-euro cab ride to the train station. We will continue to stay at the Paba when in Rome and enthusiastically recommend Alberta and her hotel to friends.
Perfect place to stay
We stayed at the Hotel Paba a couple of years ago and I have to agree with the other reviews on this page, this lady is so friendly and accommodating, she delivers breakfast to your room each morning, you just give her a ring when you are ready to eat. The hotel is very clean and central - and the price is good. If you are going to Rome this hotel is well worth staying at.
We have stayed in Rome two times in the past year, both times staying at the Hotel Paba. We stayed in Hotel Paba the second time because we were so pleased with our trip last year. This quaint hotel was spotless and had spacious rooms. It is run by quite possibly the nicest woman in Rome, Alberta. She speaks English extremely well, and is also marvelous at sending her visitors to wonderful hidden restaraunts around Rome. I would strongly recommend the Hotel Paba to any visitor to Rome, on account of its beautiful rooms, wonderful owner, and fantastic location.
When in Rome....
When in Rome, stay at Hotel Paba. This lovely place is run by the friendliest of ladies, Mrs. Alberta Castelli. She speaks excellent English and is kindness personified. The rooms are clean, spacious and cosy. Best of all is the location. A mere 10 minutes away from Rome Termini. And get out of the hotel, turn left, walk 500 metres, look to your left and the Colloseum will take your breath away. To the right, not more than 200 metres away if the Forum. Fro location you can't beat this place. My wife and I spent 5 lovely nights at Hotel Paba, enjoying Mrs. Castelli's warm hospitality.

... dozen monks either lying on a bed of long bones or standing in their habits holding a cross, quite an experience.
We left here and walked to Trinita dei Monti the church overlooking the Spanish steps with one of 13 roman obelisks in the center of the square. At the time we didn't realize this was the Spanish steps, so we go back to them tomorrow. This was a roman imitation of an Egyptian obelisk even copying the hieroglyphs on it, very impressive. We continued on ...
... Glad we remembered to do that. So as we walk into the arrivals area, Claudio was there waiting for us, with my name on a sign. He walked us to his car, a Mercedes E Class sedan, so we travelled to our hotel in style. He was very informative, as he gave us a map of Rome, and recommendations of places to go, and pointed out some places of interest as we were driving along. It wasn't long until we were driving down a few back streets to our ...
... with mushrooms and peas, a glass of wine. (I wrote this because I know I won't remember. We are still on the hunt for that amazing meal!) The table next to us had a tame version of the Soprano family. They obviously knew the owner and bantered loudly in Italian to each other and the staff. Random food items kept appearing on their table that no one else seemed to have. Grant wanted the patriarch of the family to adopt him or at least be ...
... with the guards constantly hushing the new people as they enter. Michelangelo knew his stuff!! The artwork really is magnificent and the colours stunning. The crowd moves almost as a whole, so we are in the chapel for only a short time. While the artwork in the chapel is truly amazing, so too is some of the work in the surrounding rooms and halls which we make our way back through on our way to St Peters Basilica. You know...where the Pope ...
... tasty ristorante about a block from our apartment. Marco decided to adventure a little with his pizza habit and ordered pizza con funghi (mushrooms), Paolo ordered spaghetti alla carbonara, I got gnocchi con pesto e Olivia got the same, as well as a pizza margherita. We made our way back to Trastevere, where we stopped at a supermercato for some new wine to taste and some snacks for the night. Olivia bonded with a few Italian men about our ...
