Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 April 2012

If you want a hotel that's clean, funky, perfectly situated with a great breakfast then this hotel is for you. But what really sets this hotel apart from many others is the staff. Nothing it seems is too much trouble for them. They are courteous, helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and quite honestly wonderful. We had a fabulous time in Rome, but what really made our stay so perfect was knowing that at the end of a tiring day we would return to the friendliness of the Relais dei Papi.

For our first trip to Rome, we couldn't have asked for a better stay. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. David - front desk - was wonderful and arranged for our pick-up and return to the airport. We were close to the Vatican and other sites. There were good restaurants in the area recommended by the staff and the hotel breakfast was very good. Room was clean and all was very nice. We'd definitely stay again and recommend to our friends.

If you want to visit Rome and prefer an uncomplicated and nice hotel, go to the Relais dei Papi. The location is absolutely perfect for visiting the Vatican (10 Minute walk away) and all other sights can be easily reached by metro or bus. The rooms are extremly clean, some even don't have carpets (allergies!). The staff is very kind and provides maps, extra information about city and sights and recommends restaurants that are worth visiting. Breakfast varies: sweet Italien styled things, but also eggs, ham, cheese, toast and marmelade, tea and cakes are available. We enjoyed our stay a lot!

We stayed here four nights 17th Mar to 21st Mar 2012 the hotel from the outside is nothing special but looks are deceiving on this occasion, just a door on a back street but once inside the Hotel is pleasant, clean and tidy. Only a continental breakfast and no bar but we prefer to be out and about normally when on a City Break so no problem with that. The Staff were very friendly (in fact the only friendly people we met in Rome) as soon as we arrived the porter gave us excellent information and advice on the city and the people, with a free map he wrote all of the best places to explore, although great advice some of it was a real downer. He warned us that everyone would be out to fleece us, said be very careful of pick pockets and never sit outside a restaurant without know the prices first. This unfortunately left us with a bad taste and did not help our frame of mind as we felt on edge and suspicious of everyone all weekend. He also told us that the taxi trip from the main station should have been 15 euro and not the 40 euro we had to pay!

I have to say that apart from a visit to the Sistine Chapel and the Hotel we stayed at The Relais Dei Papi our trip was the worst city break ever. It was very clear that the Italians hate the British, very rude people especially when they knew you were British - we were ripped off at every opportunity with EXTORTIONATE charges for: -

Taxi 4 km trip 40 euro!!!
2/3 pint of beer 7 euro!
1 x tea+ 1x coffee+ 2 x pastries + 33 euro!!!

A work colleague of mine yesterday told me that he had similar experiences visiting Rome, Venice and Milan on a three City excursion, he was fleeced by everyone at one point with his pregnant wife he had a 2km taxi ride with luggage that the driver wanted 50 euro for!! - the taxi driver would not let them have their luggage until they paid!!

This is just my opinion but if you are considering Rome or even Italy THINK AGAIN!

Room Tip: we were in 412 which was a good room but the bed was a little uncomfortable - to be fair the porter...
