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.

    Beautiful private room, was basically an apartment to ourselves with everything but a kitchen! Not sure what the shared dorms would be like but this was perfect and in an amazing location! And super friendly and helpful staff, would definitely come again.

    Very Good

    Overall a good stay. Location is about 15 mins walking from coliseum, 20 from trevi, 50 from Vatican. The host Franco is helpful and will be there to help check in and check out as long as you give him a call ahead of time, and he answers calls right away! Did the job and felt safe and clean enough, standard for a hostel. This wasn’t as much of a hostel though as it was a room in a building, there’s no lobby either. Could’ve been cheaper for what it was but it was clean, good location, good host

    This is a basic hostel. Beds are comfortable and there are fans for summertime and good charging facilities. The photos are accurate but do put the rooms in the best possible light. For the price I was expecting better and I have found cheaper and nicer places. However the location is ideal and the owner is very nice and kind and allowed me to store my suitcase for free for a few hours which was exceptionally useful. Do be aware that there is no lift and some rooms are many flights up.

    The shower bearly worked, the sink mostly sprays you with water. It would have been exactly what I was looking for but not spending what could not be more than 50 euro and some CLR to fix the shower head and sink was extremely disappointing.

    This stay is not for an inexperienced traveler. Very bare bones but the staff was nice. Overall, we didn’t feel very safe or clean. Also, our room was nine flights up with no elevator and no air conditioning in the middle of July.
