“Excellent hotel. Excellent location. Excellent service.”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

This litte hotel is right in the centre of rome about 300m from the colloseum. We found it very easy to find from the train station.
Rooms are a good size and very clean. We had room 6 which had a balcony which was fab for sitting out in the sun. The hotel service is fantastic with clean sheets and towels daily. The hotel owner is a little old lady who was so lovely - she brought us breakfast every morning. Breakfast consisted of a croissant and toast with orange juice or coffee. The hotel also has WIFI which is charged at 2 euros per day. The rooms also have a fridge in them and air conditioning.
Overall I would say this hotel is fantastic and I would definately stay here again and would without a doubt recommend it to others going to Rome.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a balcony.

Alberta is a gem, she makes you feel like you are in your home. The setting, while not luxurious, is pleasant and the location could not be better. Let me just add a couple of things that others haven't mentioned: 1) I was a little nervous going as a gay couple to a 7-room bed and breakfast in Rome operated by an woman of a different generation. I shouldn't have been. Alberta couldn't have been more welcoming 2) She goes out of her way in all kinds of ways. Two days in a row because of jet lag and our general night owl nature, we didn't order breakfast til after noon! No problem! I will definitely recommend this place to my friends!

nice room. very clean. (our beds had hard mattresses,- we did not mind, maybe other rooms have softer ones -if you mind you should ask) walking distance from Rome's main train station (15 min) and close to metro station(5 min) Lady who runs it is very nice. you get continental breakfast to the room every morning. very close to coliseum and forum. very good value for the money

We loved Hotel PABA. Alberta was very helpful. The location is perfect near Colosseum and right on the Metro. We had nice towels, good water pressure and a big bed. The breakfast croissant and cappuccino were just right and brought to our room. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!!

The ladies working here were extremely nice and helpful. The location was great. Very close to good restaurants and the colliseum. The room was very clean and nice and had a nice balcony overlooking the roman forum. I would definitely recommend this place.

We stayed a week at the hotel, and had booked it based on both the location and the recommendations here. We have nothing to add to all the good things already said. This is a very small hotel located on the 2nd floor of a building and has no dining room but has the breakfast served in your room. The room we had was very clean and nice and the location of the hotel is perfect for visiting Colosseum and its surroundings, and for good Italian dining! There are lots of excellent dining places within 5-10 minutes walking distance, e.g. Taverna Romana and La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali. The lady at the reception is very helpful and friendly, and will happily make restaurant reservations for you if you need help. Very recommendable place to stay!

This is our second stay at Hotel PABA. We were here in 2010 for 6 night and have now been here for 13 nights, leaving tomorrow. The location is perfect. You are only minutes to 2 metro stations, The Coloseum and The Forum are literally at the end of the street and the owner is DARLING! Mrs. Castelli (Alberta) takes such pride in her hotel and has been so good to us. Breakfast is included in your stay. I would never stay anywhere else in Rome!
