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.

... for tomorrow.
Brilliant decision, as it would turn out as you need a full day for it. We had an awesome afternoon, my favourite really. You see Megan, ever prepared as she is, had downloaded a self-guided walking tour of the central Roman highlights.
We popped off some postcards to relies abroad and headed along Via dei Coronari to Piazza Navona (this street is where visitors used to buy rosaries (coronaris) on their way to visit St Peter's tomb ...
... to school, so he spoke very fluent English. He told me the craziest thing about Rome, I honestly did not believe him when he told me. There are three levels of Rome, the top one that everyone visits now, and there are two more beneath it. This means that there are literally two massive cities underneath the streets of Rome! The reason for this is that the water levels kept rising in Rome and flooding the city, so the people would ...
... that acts as a compression ring. Inside are the tombs of Raphael and kings vittorio Emanuele II and Umberto I. On our free day in Rome we went to the Vatican City in the morning then in the afternoon the roman ruins, palatine hill and the colosseum. We were amazed at how the Vatican is considered it's own country so technically we were in another country for the morning. We walked all around the Vatican including seeing the old vehicles used for the popes, Indonesia ...

There were four different types of cheese for us to sample which included one of the strongest cheeses in the world. It looked more like a spread than a cheese and we were told cautiously by Jill that we only needed the tiniest bit. She was right, of course, because as soon as it hit the tongue, sharp hot flavours was all that could be felt. More like a super hot ...

The place was infested with tourists alike as I wandered around the inside of the Pantheon while admiring its huge dome way above me with an oculus (Latin word for eye) or circular window right in the middle of it!
Reading a sign right next to me, I learned that the dome’s height and diameter were ...
