Area description
The Papavista Relais offers a prime location at the heart of Rome, 20 meters from the Vatican Museums and a few steps from the main monuments of the Eternal City, close to the subway station Ottaviano-Musei Vaticani. You can soak in the beauty of the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica, or in the thousand-year history of Castel Sant'Angelo. Walking along the Tiber you can reach the characteristic district of Trastevere, with its excellent bars and restaurants ready to welcome you at any hour of the evening. The heart of the medieval town lies on the other side of the Tiber. Just cross one of the bridges to find yourselves immersed in a dense network of roads, streets and several alleys, full of inns, pubs, bars, shops and craft shops. The rest of the city is accessible by public transport and by the efficient underground network, with a stop a few meters from Papavista Relais.

Impossible to find

We got to venice and started looking for the hotel, nobody seemed to know that hotel, we walked and walked, and walked and after 2 hours of walking with our luggage up and down bridges and stairs, we finally found it. The first thing we saw was the horrible entrance to the building that appeared to be on construction, then I found out that the hotel was on the third floor, NO ELEVATOR and about 60 stairs to climb. I would definitely never come back to this hotel.

Excellent service and value.

Very comfortable and clean rooms. Excellent location next to Vatican Museum and 5-10 min walk from a metro station. Service was VERY helpful to provide tips on how to get around Rome and what to see.

Great B&B

I can not say enough about this Great B&B. We have stayed at several B&B's in the last couple of years and this one is at the top of the list. The staff went out of their way to make everything perfect. On mornings that we were leaving early for trips they prepared a breakfast tray the night before and left in our room since their regular breakfast bar was not open that early. The loacation was perfect for the Vatican Tour. We were at the foot of the steps to the Vatican Museum. Always helpful on mapping routes, transportation or whatever. Keep in mind that this is not the center of town but very close to the Vatican.We love to walk and covered most of Rome by foot from here. The Metro and Buses are only a few blocks away if walking is a problem. This place is one of the Best, and all of the staff will go out of their way for whatever you might need.

Dining is everywhere in Rome, and no shortage around this B&B. Dining on every block in the area. Two Grocery Stores down the street, and a McDonalds and Burger KIng a few blocks away (about a 10 walk) for an American taste.

Wonderful Experience!

I can't say enough great things about the staff and accomodations of the Papavista Relais. I was amazed at the amenities included for such a reasonable room rate. But what really makes this hotel stand out and would make me definitely book it again if I am in Rome was the hotel staff. Due to Huricane Sandy we had a bunch of last minute travel changes and I was able to keep in constant email communication with them and they were so helpful, responsive and understanding. Since they knew the storm was causing us to travel for two days straight they even allowed us check in to our rooms at 6 AM (even though their normal check in time is late afternoon) for no additional charge. The other thing about this hotel is the location. You are literally right next to the Vatican Museums and in the middle of all the action of Rome. I highly recommend this hotel if you will be in Rome.

Make an online reservartion to visit the Vatican Museums at a specific time. The Papavista Relais hotel front desk staff will be happy to book it for you and this will allow you to walk out of your hotel and literally straight into the museums (just up the stairs from the hotel) bypassing the line that often stretches well into the 5 hour range to get in.

Fabulous Vatican location

The staff at this hotel are far better than a 5-star hotel. Every single one of them went out of their way to be helpful and respond to unusual requests--and always with a smile and the feeling that they were glad you gave them the chance to help. The hotel is just about two blocks from the Vatican and also within walking distance of other sights. We had a fabulous stay!!

QUAINT HOTEL, INCREDIBLE STAFF

Papavista Relais Rome is a 5 room hotel (i.e. Quaint hotel) very near the Vatican Museums. My family occupied 3 of the 5 rooms and found each to be spacious, beautifully clean with great AC and very nice bathrooms. Adding a mattress pad to improve bed softness would be our only suggestion. The wonderful staff makes this hotel special. Each of them made us feel as if we were staying in their home and had become part of their family. Many thanks to David, Grasia and Stefani for making our visit so memorable!
