Nothing was too much trouble, Caterina even booked our train tickets to Naples. It is situated just off Via Corso making it very central. Our room was...

We had everything we needed for a family get together, without a huge lobby, and in a perfect location Rome. The help in where to go, how to get there, was excellent, and given with a smile by all involved. Everything worked, breakfast was just what we needed. Hope to go back again.

La Papessa is very well located on the Via del Corso and within walking distance of most sites. It is very close to the Trevi Fountain. The hosts are always helpful and make very good continental breakfasts. The rooms are spacious and well equipped.

La Papessa is perfectly positioned in the middle of Via del Corso, which despite being Rome's main street, is quiet at night. All of Rome's main attractions are within walking distance. Staying there is like staying in a clean and comfortable Roman home, with gracious and helpful hosts.Breakfast isn't bad either.

5 mins from the Trevi, 10 from the Colosseum, Pantheon & Piazza Navona 5 mins away. You can't get much more central than this. Lovely, helpful couple met us; provided us with a map and advice re what was on. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was plentiful. We would heartily recommend staying here.

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
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.
