Property Description

Established in 1990, Paolina Rooms has come to be one of the most popular accommodations in Rome and a well-known place to stay for young travelers. Since its opening it has been recommended in all the main guide books.

The structure is located in Rione Monti, a lively neighborhood close to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Just down the hill you will find the charming cobble-stone streets, Monti proper, complete with fountain for nighttime gatherings. A trendy area, it boasts artisan and vintage shops, a plethora of dining options and cafes, and bustling crowds comprised of residents, artists, tourists, and other colorful folk.

Paolina Rooms is a calm, clean, budget-friendly place to crash in the heart of Rome. It is located on a 19th-century townhouse close to the Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica and to Via Cavour, one of Rome’s main roads. Despite being a small property, with no common room and no kitchen, our guests appreciate the cozy, homey atmosphere.

Several transport options, such as metro, buses, trams, taxi stands, and tour buses, are at your fingertips. Paolina Rooms is easily accessible from Termini central train station, just a few minutes' walk from the structure. Termini hosts bus and train transport to and from Rome's airports.

Thank you and enjoy Rome.

    Franco was amazing! He moved us to a bigger place for free. He went above and beyond. Place was nice and clean. The Colosseum was 5 minutes away. Amazing!

    Was a bit hard to find where to check in, but once I did Franco was great and gave a good overview of where to go in Rome. Facilities and rooms were basic but had what I needed. Room could have been cleaner. Location was good for walking to most of the major sights.

    Franco is the nicest man youll ever meet in Rome. We had some issues with our suite and he helped us move to a new one immediately. Very attentive and great service. Our first room and an unacceptable bathroom and our 2nd room and an average cleaned bathroom. Keep in mind the building is very old but in a great area! Close to the attractions/bus stops. I did not mind my stay and franco was great :)

    Well located in a quiet neighborhood (for Rome...). Staff (Franco) is very nice and answers to any demand. Although the room was clean, it was very basic, small and had a degraded feel to it (cracked tiles, marks on the wall, etc.). Our room was in a old Rome building with a rather sinister atmosphere to it. Don't expect a hotel or a hostel, this is more like an apartment renting, therefore you don't really get to meet other travelers.

    The bar at No 20 where we agreed to meet was empty, however on calling Franco he did send someone pretty quickly. Our apartment was on the third floor so loads of steps. On arrival it had not been cleaned but when Franco arrived he was very helpful and arranged cleaning. The rooms were basic - the bathroom really below par, No smoke alarms or fire escape. However the beds were super comfortable. We also had a fridge, microwave and kettle.

    I stayed with 2 friends at Paolina Rooms in Rome and I have to say it was the worst hostel experience I’ve had so far. When we arrived, there was no one there to check us in and we had to wait over an hour outside the office for someone to show up. I also found a razor from the previous guest in my room’s shower and the locks on the doors are extremely hard to open and not safe for 3 girls coming home late at night. Location was good but it wasn’t worth what they’re charging.
