Travelled to Rome from Florence by train and taxi to the hotel, Taxi did not know of the property so dropped us at 241 Via Corso the guest house address. Not the easiest found property for our 4 night stay just before Easter 2014, Behind a street kiosk, 10 meters down a side street, there is a large door opposite some restaurant tables, up six flights of stairs or via a small lift on in-between floors you will find a door for the La Papessa Guest; not a very impressive entrance but you are in the centre of Rome! However, once inside the welcome is friendly and informative, Marcella talked us through the sites, transport, restaurants and the accommodation. There are 4 rooms and we stayed in the rear room that does not front the Via Corso so had no traffic noise. The rooms are of ample size clean and well decorated. Free fridge and safe provided. En-suite bathroom, our only issue is that the shower has a spa unit in the cubical which makes normal showering difficult as it occupies half the available area. The reception area doubles as the breakfast room and while small functions well. A good selection of fresh breakfast items were available each morning. The location is excellent, we walked everywhere, in any direction we were within half an hour of all the sites including the Vatican, if you prefer local transport it can be found right in front of the property. The great service continued when, as our flight home was in the evening we were able to leave our bags at the guest house after checkout and were given keys to collect them later, letting us enjoy the whole day before meeting the car they had arranged for our trip to the airport. If you want a central location, simple, clean accommodation, friendly and informative staff this is for you.
