“Wonderful Christmas in Rome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

Papa Vista Relais played no small part in making our recent trip to Rome very memorable! The staff was incredibly helpful in assisting us with all of our needs-from arranging an airport transfer, to finding us a restaurant that was open on Christmas, to loaning us a power converter-that she personally owned (after ours broke). The staff assisted us in planning our adventure through the city. The breakfast started our day right and was plentiful-it was nice to have a freshly-made cappuccino to start our day!

The location provided us easy access to all of Rome. The subway was a five minute walk away and the entrance to the Vatican-St. Peter's Square was less than a 10 minute walk.

We would certainly return to Papa Vista in the future and we happily recommend Papa Vista to anyone visiting Rome.

This hotel was great! The location is excellent, a short walk from the subway station, and right next to the Vatican museum. Most of all, the staff was just amazing, very helpful! The rooms are tastefully decorated and very clean.

Me and my grandmother had a wonderful weekend in Rome and the staff at PapavistaRelais were a big part of it. From the nice mails from David that I got in advance to the friendly welcoming from Grazia. She showed us what she thought could be interesting for us to see and do. The room was very clean, comfortable beds and looked very new. We had a nice woman helping us with the breakfast too. All together: They helped us get a weekend in Rome that we will remember for a long time, in most positive way. When we come back, we will stay here.

My husband and I stayed here on our last night in Rome purely to visit the Vatican, we had spent time in Rome earlier in our Honeymoon & missed the Vatican.

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Great service and a warm welcome received by David on our first day.

Free wi-fi and a great buffet breakfast. The staff were happy to hold our bags while we visited the Vatican and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

Not a great location if you are wanting to see Rome city centre but really fantastic for the Vatican and that side of the River!!

We stayed here during our Honeymoon. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome. On entering our room (The Vatican Suite) there were candles lit & a complimentory bottle of red wine, The location is excellent with many great restaurants within walking distance. We strongly recommend this Hotel. We will be back!!

This is a great place to stay. It has everything: easy access to the Metro, close to Vatican City (it's practically across the street from the entrance to the Vatican Museum); bright, welcoming common areas; friendly staff; spacious, impeccably clean rooms and bathrooms; and, best of all, an elevator! An affordable, delightful experience as we explored the richness of Rome. And great coffee.

David & Sylvia's welcome and the information they provided us with was much appreciated and helped us to make the most of our 4 nights in Rome. We ate at 3 of the restaurants they recommended and were able to enjoy excellent food in the company of locals and at a reasonable price. David went to some trouble to book us a tour of the Borghese Gallery,
which was superb.
Our room was very comfortable and well presented, with a large shower in the ensuite. Breakfast was fresh and delicious.
The position was very convenient for the Vatican Museum, but we were glad we arrived by taxi since otherwise we might have struggled to find the door in first time.
We highly recommend PapaVistaRelais.
