A Gem of a Place in Rome
Caterina and Giuesspe were outstanding hosts. They went out of their way to ensure my wife and I had an A1 anniversary experience. Champagne was provided as well as a sweet congratulatory note. I would not hesitate to recommend La Papessa to any traveler. It is a diamond of a place. The restaurant just outside the front door is also so amazing. the cuisine is top notch. Our server, Roman,took great care of us.

Nice and Simple with a great Location
I had a great stay here because Catdrina (owner) was very helpful, the price, and location. You are pretty close to the Pantheon, Piazza Venezia, and Trevi Fountain, while being a 15 to 20 minute walk to the Colosseum and Spanish steps. The room was nice and simple. You are getting great value as its not a luxurious place.

Caterina is very responsive to my emails before our arrival. Offered booking tours and arranged taxi for airport drop off. She is very sweet and helpful. The room is nice and clean. The only issue is the sofa bed is uncomfortable. There is a hole in the bed. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at La Papessa. It has very convenient location. We walked to most must-see places in Rome including Colosseum.

A Wonderful Stay at La Papessa for a Roman Holiday
Our four member family (husband, wife and two fourteen year old children) stayed at Lapessa for four nights during our European vacation here in July 2019. We enjoyed everything about it. It's location is 400 meters from Trevi Fountain and four hundred meters from the Pantheon. It is right on Via del Corso, one of the main streets in downtown Rome, giving easy taxi access to the nearby places like the Coliseum and the Vatican. . Yet the accommodations were quiet. It operates like a bed and breakfast. Each day food of your asking is deposited for you at both breakfast and dinner. Each day the rooms are cleaned. It is very comfortable. With its fourth floor location, the views are spectacular. This accommodation is a great deal. From a financial point of view you are paying about forty percent of what you would be paying in a centrally located Rome hotel. From a service point of view you really can't do better. We had a great time and will be planning to return again for a longer stay. .
