5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013

We stayed in Hotel Paba in November 2011 for our first trip to Rome - three night stay. We wanted to experience Italy by staying in a privately run, small hotel. This hotel was recommended in the Rick Steeve's book. The entrance to the hotel rom the street is unassuming; the hotel is located on the third floor of an apartment building, which I understand is typical or Italy. Alberta, the host and hotelier was wonderful. We stayed in the room closest to the front desk, but there was no noise or distractions. Alberta was informative but never intrusive, and happily provided information concerning the metro, buses, restaurants and the like.

The room was ample, the bed comfortable and the bathroom was bigger than we expected. There was a nice sized shower and we never ran out of hot water. A lovely breakfast was served in the room each morning.The room was very clean.

There is probably not a better location in Rome. It was within 100 yards of a train station which we took to the Vatican. Almost everything is within walking distance and the colliseum is literally steps away. It is a vibrant street. We went to a restaurant on the same side, down the street, whose name escapes me, but it was open late with a local crowd and we enjoyed some great pizza and good pasta dishes. We shared a table with an Italian couple and it was a wonderful experience.

When we go back to Rome, we will definitely stay at Hotel Paba. Its location, price and host combine for a memorable experience!! Plan to stay at the Hotel Paba and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Be sure to take advantage of Alberta's knowledge about restaurants, transportation and everythin...

Great rooms, great location! Good for couples and families.

The lady who runs Hotel Paba is very helpful and goes out of her way to make your holiday more enjoyable. She bought us breakfast in bed as well as phoned us at 4am to let us know the taxi was downstairs ready to go to the airport. Hotel Paba is on the 2nd floor. There is a lift but taking the stairs was quicker :)

A couple of restaurants nearby were just alright but encourage people to look up trip advisor for good restaurants!

Definitely stay here!

We were a little apprehensive about it being a 2 star hotel, but the room was very charming and much larger than anticipated. The owner was very cute and went out of her way to make sure the room was ready for an early check-in even though she didn't have to. She gave us a good map of the city and offered some advice on how to get around and what we may want to see for our short stay. The only thing better than the room was the location. Very nicely located close to the Colosseum and only about a 4 minute walk to the closest metro station. There are about 3 nice restaurants close by as well as a fairly large grocery store just down the street. The water pressure was a little low in the shower, but if this is all you have to complain about you don't have your priorities in order! I would highly recommend the hotel because it is easy to find and in a good location.

Alberta was so kind and helpful. My room was perfect (nice size bathroom too!), with a view out to the street. You cannot hear street noise when the windows and shutters are closed so it was perfect for recuperating from jet lag.

The location cannot be beat, with your choice of restaurants right outside the front door. Walk just a couple of blocks down and you're at the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Amazing sights and so close to the hotel.

I felt safe and right where I wanted to be in the city. Someone commented on the breakfast. Italians don't really eat what we call breakfast so the toast, croissant and coffee are perfect. If you want more, step outside and head to any of the conveniently located restaurants.

Functional yet cozy rooms, great location close to many important sights, wonderful service from Alberta and her son Alessio. Very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is modest, mostly toast and croissants and coffee. It's a wonderful place to stay at a good price.

It's also close to many restaurants, one of them being taverna romana. It has authentic food, a cozy atmosphere and decent prices.

We will definitely come back and send our friends here!
