We enjoyed 2 nights at La Papessa in Oct. of this year. It was wonderful in all aspects. The friendly helpful staff, central location for walking to the main sights, great breakfast, and accommodation suited us for our first trip to Rome. Being picked up at the airport was great too. The only negative was not having enough time in...

I am a single older woman traveling alone and La Papessa made me feel "at home" in Rome. Katerina and Marcella were extremely helpful in helping me find some unusual destinations and tickets to the opera. You can't beat the location, friendly staff, and large rooms. I would definitely recommend this guest house to my family and friends.

My family (including my 10 and 8 year old) had a great stay at La Papessa for 4 nights in October. We enjoyed the perfect temperature for exploring Rome, though we were surprised at how many tourists were there even in October. We loved wandering the streets, sampling ice cream and looking at the street artists and beautiful old buildings...

Hello lovely family, thank you for your comment. First of all we apologize for the mistake as you are right regarding the city tax.

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.
