Let me just say the staff who work at these apartments are very helpful and attentive. The location is an excellent place right in the middle of rome not far from trevi fountain and the Spanish steps. The breakfast is continental and very good. I would defiantly recommend this for anyone who wants to go to rome.

The location is amazing. A few blocks from Trevi, a few blocks from the Pantheon, a few blocks from Piazza Venezia so nice during the day and evening. The room was spotless and the service was great. Staff was very helpful and went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. There is a lift after a few steps. Breakfast...

First let me say that our hosts were beyond accommodating since our flights from the U.S. kept getting delayed and changed and our phone messages and emails updating them of the situation were spotty at best. They had arranged a car service to pick us up so staying in contact was critical. They were the best. They stayed until midnight...

What can we say that hasn't already been said! This wonderfully quaint, 4 room, guest house is in the absolute most perfect location just off Via Del Corso. We were literally minutes, and I mean minutes, from the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Victor Emmanuelle Museum, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum, and Coliseum! Caterina and her staff are truly wonderful and...

We recently stayed here after deciding this area was the best for our 3 day tour of Rome, and boy was I correct! This hotel is in THE PERFECT area to see all the major Piazza's and statues, as well as being 15 minutes away from the Colosseum, which you should walk to. However, if you want, right across the...

La Papessa is a fantastic location. We had never been to Rome, and after all options decided here. Lorodana was our hostess and sweet, kind and helpful. The hotel is small, 4 rooms, and there IS and elevator so that helps. It's clean, the beds are basic but comfortable and very big, w good AC and breakfast is included. The...

It is a small hotel, with only 4 rooms. Close to Fountain Trevi, less than 500m. Caterina is very kind and was in contact with us, we arrived very late. It is an old roman building in Via Corso, down town. Very convenient to be in the centre close to Navona Plazza, Plaza España, Coliseum... I recommend you!

We picked the hotel for its central location for exploring Rome, and were not disappointed. Most of Rome's key sights are within walking distance, particularly the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and Pantheon. What turned out to be a pleasant surprise was how warm and welcoming our hosts were. They really made us feel comfortable and took extra time to give...

Ideally located for being close to anything in Rome, both turistic attractions and shopping Very nice staff, clean room and fair rates Taxi and bus station nearby, caffetaria, restaurants and a supermarket 3 minutes away by foot. Went with some friends, had a room for three and we found no inconveniences with it

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
