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.

... of this neighbourhood are jumping even though Sunday Mass isn't very far away. See pic. Apart from Trevi fountain looking so awful and being such a major disappointment to me as it was supposed to be a highlight of this trip, it has been great to be in Rome. To see all these ancient sights and just being here is such a privilege. Glad it hasn't been raining. We start the tour soon - after Monday. Hope you are all enjoying our blog. It is a real education being ...
... though we couldn't take photography inside so I don't have a pic to show you guys. After the Sistine chapel we had a quick bite to eat and kept going to St Peters square (which was really an oval:/). We went to the St Peters basilica. It was so so so so so big! We saw all of the statues taken from the colosseum. And the best food in the world to finish the day...........you guessed it, the old famous GELATO. Going to Florence tomorrow ...
... white chocolate gelato I have tasted and after another half hour or so, decided to bail and go to bed as it was getting late.
The following day we slept in a little and after discovering I had little bites up my arm (presumed to be bed bugs) made our way to the Vatican. We arrived at the courtyard around lunch time and were instantly impressed at how grand and large the courtyard was. The walls of the Vatican courtyard designed as to represent arms embracing all ...

His massive muscle mass flexed as he showed us his scares & broken bones but his lovely smile gave his masculine persona away as a "softie" :) He frequents Bulgaria and is almost considered royalty there. He stays & ...
... it good. Got chatting with the lifeguard there for a bit, turns out he works six out of seven days, 8:00am to 11:00pm. Stuff that for a joke! Around 6:30pm, my stomach was really starting to rumble, having barely eaten al day. I've noticed that I've lost weight while on this trip, I don't know how much but where before I could just get away without wearing a belt on my shorts, now they fall off completely if I don't wear one. Dinner again was schnitzels, they are by far the easiest things ...
