The staff at this bed a breakfast was amazing!! Especially Federica who helped us navigate our way around. The only issue we had was the beds were extremely hard, other than that the breakfast and guidance was amazing!! Thank you for the wonderful time.

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.

This hotel was beautiful, and the staff was so helpful. The hotel overlooked the Vatican, it lived up to the name Papavista.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

Very good B&B type hotel, good location, clean room and very friendly staff. Great value.

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!

THE HOTEL STAFF WAS AMAIZING AND HOTEL AND SERVICES GREAT , JUST A FEW STEPS FROM VATICANO. VERY RARE WAY TO GET IN TO HOTEL SINCE IS IN A 3TH FLOOR FROM AN ANTIQUE BUILD, BUT GREAT EXPERIENCE IN ROME,,AND SO KIND !!!! THANK YOU !!!!

The hotel was very comfy and the staff was helpful. I would recommend this hotel and the location is great, very close to the vatican.

Everything was great! Airport shuttle was expensive but so is a taxi. Homy feel to the room was nice.

The staff were highly accommodating, and friendly. After a long day I felt very comfortable coming to the B&B, and speaking with the desk attendant. It is very small, only 6 rooms; I felt that i was staying in someone's home. My only criticism, is that it was very difficult to find. We could not find it on our own when driving, and even when we choose to take a cab from the nearby Vatican, my taxi driver was still confused; we passed the location several times until asking a local and finding that it is on the 3rd floor of a residential building.
