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.

... able to get a better look at the maze of the underground filled with chambers and cells. After we were finished exploring the colosseum we sat out side admiring the classic tourist shot of the colosseum whiles eating our lunch. We then headed into the roman forum and Paletine hill, so many roman relics laying around. The arco di Tito (arch way) was really impressive! We spent ages wandering around exploring all the sites, came across some ...
... that there was a cardinal that was outraged at the artwork Michelangelo had done after something like 4 or 5 years into the project – he disliked all the nudity and thought it was indecent to have in a church. At that point, Michelangelo worked one of the ugly, tortured souls in the Final Judgment wall into a portrait of that cardinal. When he complained further about that, evidently, the Pope said there was nothing that could be done about it and that’s ...
... Being off our feet was good though, and Liam got his first sight of a Ferrari in the land of Ferrari, a bit more impressive than the Fiats he's been looking at with glee. It did however reinforce for all of us the degree of constructed sanctity in Rome, ie. many places are considered to be great because of a Papal contribution or some Saintly history, meaning they relate to manmade contribution. Seems to be rather at odds with what is Biblically described as ...
... fella from NZ who had just finished his first year of primary teaching and was heading to England with his English girlfriend for a couple of weeks. We had a great chat about the NZ processes for teaching reading - all hail Marie Clay - and as a parting gift I gave him the NT website with AL resources. Share & share alike.

It was so gross, but if it was going to happen to anyone it wold happen to Tim so it made it hilarious as well. On our second night in Florence we went to Space Nightclub, which for all you Jersey Shore fans out there was the club they went to in the season where they went to Italy. The club was amazing, it was so big! After Florence we moved on to Rome. I was ...
