We arrived (myself, husband and husbands parents) at the hotel on Tuesday 24th October during the evening and stayed for 3 nights. Check in was very quick and we were shown to our rooms. The building itself is a very old authentic roman building of the art deco period. Beds were comfy, room was spacious and the view was lovely. Breakfast is served from 7.30-9.30am. Breakfast was a continental breakfast and there was plenty of food.
The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and very friendly, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Rome as it’s reasonably priced, directly opposite the entrance for the Vatican museum and a short 10 minute walk to St. Peter’s square. We will definitely be returning.
Thank you to the staff for making our visit to Rome a memorable one.

The staff of the Hotel are very friendly and helpful. We wanted to see the rooms before booking, and it was before the check in time. It was no problem for us to see them and they (rooms) were great!

The rooms were close together (booked 2 rooms), we had two passes for each room, which made it easy for us to go inside.
The rooms were very clean and spacious, for most hotels I have been to earlier near the center of Rome, were either small or untidy.
The bathroom was great too, and the airconditioning was heavenly.

We booked for one night at first, and it was no problem for us to book a second night.

If you have questions about directions or anything, they try to help you as much as they can.
I definitely will come back to Rome and I would like to come to this hotel again.

It's close to the Vatican and metro stops. If you want to go there by car, you'll have to pay or park it at a payed and secured parking. But it is all in walking distance.

Thanks to the staff for helping us and see you next time :)

Located in the heart of Rome beside the Vatican and close to the metro so it is only minutes to all the beautiful sights to see in Rome. The neighborhood is a taste of real Rome with shops, pharmacies, beautiful restaurants, everything you need.

During our 4 night stay Stefania and Jessica were always there to help and assist with everything and nothing was a problem.Their genuine warmth and friendliness shows what true Italian hospitality is all about.

The room was comfortable and had views of the Vatican museum steps. At night all is quiet for a good night sleep. The hotel has all modern conveniences.The breakfast had plenty of selection and was fresh with lovely coffee and tea.

Thank you Stefania and Jessica for making our trip to Rome so memorable and beautiful.

Back again to PapaVista and another great stay.
This is a small (only 6 rooms) boutique 3* guest house/hotel on the third floor of a traditional "old Roman" block. The Vatican museum is less than a minutes walk and St Peter square about 10 but for all that it's off the main routes and is quiet. Breakfast is the only meal served in the hotel and is always fresh and tasty - the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Rooms are spacious and comfortable - if you are looking to stay away from the mega-hotels with all their lack of charm and are happy to dine out every day this hotel is perfect

Stefania was a wonderful host. Love the location, very close to The Vatican & great restaurants. A nice B&B very comfortable room - I actually liked it better than the other hotel where we stayed for the rest of our stay in Rome while touring with a tour group.

Small B&B right by the wall of the Vatican. Comfortable, clean. Nice breakfast and very nice owner.
It allowed us to enjoy our stay in Rome at a nice accommodation for a comparatively reasonable price.
We'll go back if/when we go back to Rome!
