Hotel Saint Paul Rome4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Good Clean, friendly staff, good value, 10 minutes walk to the metro, comfortable beds and a good shower. Bad Quite a way from centre but compensated for by price. Quite noisy, there is a bar/club next door and music didn't stop until 1am but double glazing helped. Breakfast was cleared away 1 minute after 10am. Summary Good value hotel if you don't mind being a bit away from the centre.
The hotel and staff are first class.nothing was to much trouble for them I had a problem with my return flight and hotel transfer the receptionist Valentina (I hope I have got her name right) went above and beyond to help me sort it out. Would and have recommend this hotel.i will be back again soon...
We stayed at Saint Paul Hotel for two nights at the end of September. Good hotel with everything you need for a few days stay. Wifi, hairdryer (very good one too!), extra pillows, blankets, air con, good shower facilities and towels. Quiet hotel and comfy beds, so two good nights sleep. Friendly, helpful welcome on arrival and this level of service continued throughout our stay. Lovely outdoor area for a few drinks in the evening and good selection of drinks.
Arrived late on Saturday to be greeted by a lovely man. He showed us to our room behind the reception desk, think it was room 02 or 03, the room seemed ok, nice and clean but felt we were trapped under ground with no windows. Then the noise started, think it was from the restaurant next door or up above. The noise eventually stopped around 12pm. We asked to move rooms and the nice gentleman moved us right across to room 04, again behind reception, really weird, we were really tired by then. Lay on the bed and the noise started again, We just gave up and slept the best we could. The room was small, two single beds pushed together, and very very squeaky. The shower was good but over flowed, needed some updating, walls a bit dirty, no stopper in the sink but it was clean. Overall the room and the noise was a major let down, definitely not 4star and we were hit with the €6 per night per person tourist tax, so 3 nights cost us €36, which is a lot considering the room was not great. However I was feeling unwell the day we were departing and we were allowed stay in our room until 1pm without charge, normal check out 11. Breakfast was ok €8 per person extra, but nothing cooked. Took us about 25 mins by Bus 170 across the road to get into main town, beware, the buses and metro are Extremley busy and you will get to smell a lot of peoples armpits :(. Hotel staff friendly, overrated 4 star, but a lovely trip, enjoy. Oh and request a room on 1st or 2nd floor to avoid the dungeon rooms and noise.
I booked a 4 night Italian stay with Groupon, 2 nights in Rome and 2 nights in Venice. Out of the two hotels we were allocated this was the better of the two. This is the first time that myself or sister had visited Rome so we weren't familiar with the transport at all. We arrived at Fiumicino Airport and had read previous reviews about how it was best to get to the Hotel via Bus. Although others described this as being the easiest way we were unable to find the Bus Stop to take the Bus from. We visited the Tourist Information desk at the Airport and were advised to take the Train and then Metro, although this took 45 minutes and significantly longer than the Bus would have, this was simple for us and would recommend the TrenItalia company for tourists as they are very accommodating of any language barrier and an efficient service. Once we arrived at San Paolo Metro Station the walk to the hotel was around 10 minutes. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming and we were allocated a ground floor room. Although the view from the room wasn't much we soon realized we were given a room with disabled access which was very spacious and made for an enjoyable stay. The room was extremely clean and comfortable with plenty of towels in the bathroom and complimentary toiletries. We only found 1 English Speaking Channel on the TV which was fine for us as we weren't spending a lot of time in the room anyway. The breakfast was the usual Continental breakfast you'd expect; cheese, ham, toast, pastries, Madeira cake. As a typical British tourist I was pleased to find Twinings Tea available in the Breakfast Room and also a coffee machine and fruit juice dispenser. All in all a good breakfast and no issues there. On Check-Out we paid our Tourism Tax which was slightly higher than the price we paid in Venice however this is expected as we were in the Capital and a 4 star hotel. Location wise I think this is a great hotel, we walked up to Saint Paul Outside the Walls which was spectacular and a hidden gem which I hadn't heard much people recommend so was grateful to have the opportunity to visit this during our 48 hours. We took the Metro from San Paolo to Coleseo for 1.50 which was perfect as you come out to the Colosseum immediately. All in all I would recommend this Hotel to anyone coming to Rome as the area is more quiet than being right in the center of Rome and you can enjoy some local restaurants and shops at reasonable prices. EG. We stumbled across a Gelateria selling Gelato for 1 Euro a scoop with tonnes of different flavours to choose from!!
We were somewhat disappointed with this hotel. Firstly it was some 15 minutes or so walk to the metro which was fine for us and took us to every where we wanted. The staff were very good indeed and more than helpful in everyway. The room was very small and the noise from the aircon was so noisy that we had to turn it down from level 3 to two. Having said that the noise from the bathroom extractor fan was so loud that you didn't want to stay in the room longer than you had to. The shower permanently pointed downwards so you either had to remove it from the bracket and use it as a hand held shower or hold it up with one hand and shower accordingly. The plaster on the ceiling above the shower was also coming away. This was B&B only as there was no facility for other meals. Breakfast was poor to say the least with what I would call plastic cheese and ham. No eggs but lots of other carbohydrates. Nothing to really look forward to. Making toast was a lesson in patience these so called toasters are slow at the best of times but this one was the slowest I have ever come across. In fact I didn't bother afterwards and just had bread. The waiter ( who didn't wait on anyone) would clear and clean the tables after someone had left. Cleaning comprised of wiping the table with a cloth and putting the crumbs etc on the floor then wiping the cup and saucer for the next guest with the same cloth We decided to eat locally as some previous reviews had mentioned that there were some places to eat. They were literally round the corner - come out of the hotel turn left then 30 meters away turn left and cross the main road and there was an Italian place to eat. this was very busy so obviously we thought this will be good. We do sometimes get things wrong. There was no place inside so we sat outside as it was relatively warm 21C and sat and sat. Eventually someone came out and we first ordered a bottle of wine. this eventually arrived the waiter opened the bottle and walked off. The food which seemed for ever to arrive eventually came. If you like your spaghetti al dente then great and if you like your spaghetti warm rather than hot then also great but if you like your spaghetti al dente and warm then this is the place for you to eat. Next day we went to a Chinese which one of the best we have had in years. Follow the same route but don't cross the road and its on the right. I think its called Asian Inn. The waiter told us that they get a lot of UK customers there and we also noticed a lot from the UK and our hotel Finally I wondered how this place ranked as a 4 star so looked it up on Google and was somewhat surprises at how this is done. All I can say is be careful when you see 4 star and do some serious investigation before you decide on where you stay. Photographs prepared by the hotel or its group are not always what you find
After being held up at what seemed like ransom for more money from the official white cab driver as he wouldn't let us out of the car until we gave him more money according to the meter it was €27.40 we gave him €30 he was getting very agitated our Italian limited as was his English we gave him another €10 and he then got out the car and let us out. The lady at reception was courteous and friendly but did remind us on booking in that we would have a 'tourist charge' to pay in cash on leaving. Arriving in our room which I thought was more like a prison even though we were on the 1st floor our 'window' looked out into a garage or something like that,it was dark in the room. The room was clean,but needs decorating and a little love no pictures on the wall,no bottled water or tea making facilities, the mattress was hard and not particularly comfortable.The bathroom was ok shower quite small but the water was powerful. The breakfast was a continental and an average amount of choice,was tasty and fresh. We had a drink in the bar the bartender was friendly, I didn't get that if I paid for a vodka and Coke (coke came in a can) I didn't get to have the can as we were told it's not their policy to give the can although they charge you for a whole can. The same with a bottle of wine when my asked how much for the bottle,he was told that they only sell by the glass but was offered the end of the bottle for €6 after having two glasses!! I'm surprised that this hotel has 4 stars should be less, unless it was judged on the lobby with its regal red chair and ornate mirrors rather than the rest of the hotel! Plus side good connections for buses and trains and only a 3 mile walk to the Colosseum...
Hotel not far from metro station, only 6 mins walk and every 10 mins to all major sites in rome. Tickets only €1.50 bargain!!!!!! Hotel itself was very clean staff courteous and helpful and continental breakfast was lovely.....
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. We had an amazing time, despite the area seem rough. We had a lovely room. Prior to our arrival had email the hotel saying that it was my husband 50th bday. They gave us a complimentary procesco on ice. Which was rather nice. On my last day I've actually torn a ligament on my ankle. The guy at the reception was so lovely and gave me couple of ice packs and ask for more if needed. Overall our stay was lovely. Rome is such a beautiful city. So much to see. We have enjoyed everything. There is a convenient less than 5 mins walk. Which was quiet cheap. About 10 mins to the station.
Scuff marks on the wall, broken shower, toilets that are practically hanging on by a thread and can be practically moved, hotel guests smoking on the daily yet nothing has been resolved even though smoking is supposedly prohibited. Received bug bites despite the bed lining being washed daily. Would not recommend, don't know how anyone can give them any more than one star, I unfortunately could not give less than one star. Would not recommend and will definitely not be returning. Spend your money elsewhere. 4 star, haha what a joke.
