Just got back from a 3 night stay at the Roma De Papi, and all I can say is it is the perfect place to stay in Rome! The location is perfect, directly behind St Angels Castle. All other major sights are literally 15/20 minute walking distance, barring the colleseum. This is about 30 minutes away, but there is that much to see when you are walking to it, the walk really doesnt feel that bad! If it is a bit far though, there is a bus that picks you up from just round the corner of the hotel (no 87). This takes you there for 1 euro! The staff at the hotel are lovely, and very helpful. When we arrived the man behind reception gave us a map, and told us which places to visit, when the best times to visit them were, and other useful information. The rooms are quite small and basic, but very clean, and to be honest, you dont spend much time in them when you are spending 10 hours a day sightseeing like we were!Each room does come with a safe, and air con though, so thats good, as some places you have to pay extra for things like that. Myself and my mum also had no complaints with the breakfast, there isnt a great deal of choice, but thats to be expected with a small place. There were cereals,juices, meats, eggs, bread, pastries etc, so I was more than happy with that.
Also, dont get a taxi from the airport, as these are very expensive - 40/50 euros. We got the bus from the airport to the Termini, which was only 8 euro each, and then from the termini, we got the no 40 bus, which takes you to St Angels castle. This was only 1 euro each. The hotel is easy to find, as it is literally round the back of the castle over the road. There is a small sign to say it is the Roma De Papi.
