Arriving at the apartments at 11:08pm after a 2 hour easyJet delayed flight, and where greeted by no one, and had to call a mobile number suck on the gates. Thankfully my phone worked in Rome or we would have been stranded outside all night, after about a 10 minute wait a man came up behind us and let us in to reception and took my passport and told me to return for it in the morning and the gave us the keys and point in the general direction of where to go. The next morning I went to retrieve my passport and was told because we arrived after 11pm (11:08) we have to paid a fine of €50, I explained this was not on purpose or are fault. But are plane leaving Gatwick was held up for 2 hours at the gate. But to no luck and still had to pay the €50 late fine so not a good start to the holiday at all!! Next was the issue that the apartment was dirty! As you can see from the photos I've added, there are cracks in the walls, dirty marks all over the walls and cobwebs, broken toilet push buttons, and a smells of sewage, and after spending a hole week here, house keeping only came round ONCE!! After going to reception to bring up these points I was just shrugged off, The grounds around the place are a tip! Filled with rotting food! Broken glass. And god knows what else! Again just look at the photos! All in all I have to give this place a 1 star
We stayed at the Borgo Papareschi for 5 nights Monday to Saturday during August 17 with a group of 6, our family of 4 with children 12 and 14, and their grandparents. The apartments are out of the centre of Rome in an 'upcoming' residential area. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with my wife and me and our 12 and 14 years old children. The apartment was great for our needs and spacious with a double bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge area, clean and looked newly decorated. The small kitchen area was fine for preparing meals, and the shower room modern with no limits on hot water! My parents stayed in a studio flat that was similarly well equipped and proportioned. The accommodation is in 3 renovated farm buildings in a gated compound with access control , and feels rustic and safe. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only draw back was to get to the adjacent main road where the shops and restaurants were we had to walk through a path which took us through an area of scrub land which was littered with rubbish, the locals used it including lone women at night and it was fine. In fact at night there were a lot of bats hunting over the area which was nice to watch. From the main road about 5 mins walk away you can catch the 170 bus which for 1.5 euro takes you to the centre of Rome in less than 20 mins. It stops near the Forum / Colosseum area and Plaza Venicia which allows you to walk to all the main sites in the centre. You can catch the bus back from the same area, although don't catch it between 5-6 pm when there is standing room only. We also got a taxi to the Vatican organised by the hotel which was 17 euro each way but avoided a couple of bus changes. The apartment is in a local residential area, and the there were a number of nice restaurants, ice cream parlours and coffee shops near by. The local shops provided good quality for about 60% of the price of the centre of Rome and with an authentic feel as they are used by the locals, the Tiramisu from the Coffee shop called Pompeii was great. Most of the restaurants in the area did not open until 7.30pm. (see my other Rome reviews for the restaurants we used). The main shopping area does not have any tourist shops but the standard high street chemist, supermarket, household and clothes shops which we enjoyed walking around, and provided our self catering needs. This is a good option it you want self catering and to experience some of Rome away from the tourist areas in the centre.
This hotel is in a perfect place. In the middle of everything, yet tucked away from all the noise of the city. It also offers private parking. The 2 bedroom townhouse was perfect for our family of four.
The apartment was great. Two floors & all you need for a comfortable stay, however the area surrounding the property does leave a little to be desired... downside was the tourist tax - by the time that was applied then a property nearer Rome or an area that was less grubby may have been a better option: also be aware that if you arrive after 2200 - this also incurs extra charge .. plus side staff friendly
We had a really difficult time finding the hotel because it's tucked down off of a side street at the end. Once we did though we were pleased. We had to ask a couple of local people for directions because the gps was sending us in circles. The inside was very clean. The people at the front desk were very helpful with information and provided us with tourist maps. There is a short walk through a path to one of the main streets where you will find a supermarket for groceries, bus stops, retail stores and restaurants. The kitchen was complete with pans, silverware, dishes, coffee pot etc however there is not a microwave. The free parking was great as most hotels charge an extra fee to park. In Italy you have to pay a tax on each night you stay there and they will only accept cash in euros. I didn't have enough however they said we could pay it sometime during the stay.
Want to get away from the hustle and bustle? Try this little gem out. It is a short walk to the bus depot which drops you right into the city center of Rome in about 15 minutes. Laundry machines are available if you are a traveling minimalist. Staff is multi lingual and extremely helpful Our room was gorgeous! Tiled flooring kept it cool for the warm weather and it is very clean. Tv's are in the room and we had a nice surprise of free wifi and an upgrade from our studio to a one bedroom. We can't wait to come back!
Having visited Rome previously I wanted to stay in Trasteverte and this property came up in a search and it looked very nice on the web site. In reality it was brilliant and just what I wanted. I had a studio apartment, my delight when I walked through the door after a stress filled day of travelling up from Naples was enough to wipe all of the days experience away. I wish now that I had based myself in Rome at this place this time rather than Naples initially and just took the high speed train down to Naples to view Heeerculaneum and Pompeii and spent the rest of my time in Rome exploring its many wonders. The rooms are large and comfortable and modern. I had a Lounge/kitchen/diner a large bathroom and a lovely sized bedroom, all modern. It is situated just off the via Trasteverte, bus 170 take 5 minutes in the centre of Rome. Piramide is 20 minute walk away for train to Ostia and metro and it takes about an hour to walk into town. The property is very secure and the staff very helpful, all in all a great place to stay.
We were in Trastevere/Rome for 4 days, and were very pleased about our stay. Our room was flawless, clean and had very nice facillities as a refrigerator, a little kitchen, a big bathroom and a nice terrace. The staff was incredibly nice, kind and really helpful. Always smiling and welcoming. They would go a long way to recommend us places to go and how to get there smartest as possible. We asked for a restaurant and bars for young people and we got 8 suggestions. All of the recommendations that we tried were really spot on 👍🏼 We will definitely be back at Borgo Papareschi!
We stayed here for a week in October. It was so quiet and peaceful. I loved the garden outside our apartment. The apartment was very clean and tidy and it was great to get our linen changed twice during our stay. The local shops were a 5 minute walk away. The road was very busy but you couldn't hear any noise in our apartment. There were lots of great shops, cafes, restaurants. It was easy to get the bus in to the centre of Rome. It only took about 20 minutes and they come very frequently. Not many people in this area speak a lot of English so it's helpful to know some basic Italian. In the city centre of Rome English is more widely spoken. The staff were fantastic. Mario greeted us upon our arrival and was very helpful. He gave us a map and answered all our questions. All the other staff were also very courteous and helpful. We had a wonderful stay. The only downside was a few mozzie bites, the heated towel rack wasn't working and there wasn't a microwave. Otherwise it was an excellent location for exploring Rome and very good value for money. We will definitely be coming back when we next visit Rome. Bellissimo
Located about 1km from Trastevere Station, which is on the airport line (not the express train), and in a quiet location, Borgo Papareschi is an ideal small group of apartments. Trams at the station run through to the center of Rome and the bubbling restro area of Trastevere. Spacious units are fairly well appointed for longer stays.
