Good HotelPosted 27-May-2012
Pros: The cleanliness.
Cons: The power shut off system.
Location: Not bad.
The hotel itself was very nice - a bit of a walk away from the subway stop though. It's pretty much located on a university campus and you can use the campus cafeteria next door, but no one spoke English there. The Good: Nice and Clean Hotel - looks very new Great Staff - very helpful The Bad: Small Italian Shower The Electricity Shut Off - the room key activates the electricity inside the room, therefore when you're not in the room there is no power, which is frustrating when you want to leave your devices to charge. Overall a very nice experience, definitely recommend.

Clean and serviceable, staff were helpful. It was quiet too. Downside is that it's a bit of a walk (bus/metro ride) into town and the area is not one of Rome's prettiest. But overall good value.

Good location, Good Hotel and Exceptional service-despite some of the reviews here!!!!Posted 24-Sep-2011
Right let me start of by telling you how hard it was to find this little gem amongst the rubbish available in Rome!!!I read an extensive range of online Roman hotel reviews and from recommendations from Italian friends, Hotel Saint Paul seemed like an excellent option. …. And boy was I happy with my selection! The hotel itself is around 8-10 mins walk from Basilica San Paolo station. When you have been walking around the entire city all day a short walk to the hotel from the station will not be an issue despite some reviews on this site. The station is also relevantly placed on Line B which during the engineering works (till 2012) remains open till late. The hotel is clean, tidy, and modern and feels really fresh. The hotel staffs were exceptionally professionally, helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet has a huge selection of continental food to set you up for the day, and on a Saturday served till 11am. The rooms are clean and tidy, could be a little more spacious (but you are in the middle of a inner city tower block). The only few down sides were the one single small window, so use this as an excuse to get out the room and explore the city! My partner and I were sharing two twin beds joined together, which during the night would shuffle apart. The TV channels are in italian, again another excuse to get out and see Rome. But my biggest issue was with the no free WIFI, this should be a standard not an addition to the price, cause European data costs a lot!!

Hotel Saint PaulPosted 16-May-2011 on Hotels.com
The staff was very helpful. The room was small but worked just fine. The mattress was VERY firm. From a location point of view, it was about a 10 minute walk to the Basilica San Paolo Metro stop and you could be at the Colosseum in 2 stops. There's a great trattoria across Via Marconi that works in a pinch for dinner for weary tourists. Also, there is a restaurant next door to the hotel that had salsa dance lessons and great salami pizza. Breakfast was included and it was a great buffet. Nice updated hotel + the staff made it even better.

It is not in a walking distance from the tourist atractionsPosted 23-Mar-2011
The hotel was clean and nice atmosphere. If I go back to Rome I will stay there if they have the same price :-) The only downside of the hotel is that you cannot go to the tourist attractions by feet, you have to take public transportation.

Hotel Saint Paul - OverratedPosted 31-Jan-2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel Saint Paul’s in Rome is definitely NOT a 4-Star hotel. There was no room service. However the mini bar had very good prices comparing to other hotels. Its location was a 10 minute walk from the Metro, however the surrounding area didn’t have many restaurants for a late arrival meal. Wi-Fi was not free they asked for 3€/half an hour. The rooms were clean but not as sound proof as required. And our room on the 5th floor had some mold on the sealing. Our TV was very old and not adequate for a 4 star hotel. The bathroom was very nice and clean, however the shower was quite small and the pluming was not working perfectly. The breakfast buffet was very nice. However it was good choice for the price it offered.

Definitely Not a 4 Star HotelPosted 12-Dec-2010 on Hotels.com
This hotel was a 3 star at best. The rooms were very small and basic. On the hotel's website free WIFI was listed, which they do not have. You can purchase it by the minute but It is very expensive. In the main lobby they have a computer from the 1990s with very slow interent that one can use. The woman that checked my friend and I in was very cold and rude. Nothing pleasant about the staff at all. We had requested a room with 2 twin beds, and she gave us a tiny room with a double bed. When I went back to her to ask her for a room with twin beds, she said in a very cold voice, "Okay, I will give you a different room, but don't touch anything in that room I just gave you." I had already given her the key back, what I could I possibly do to that room? The other people staying in the hotel were noisy until after midnight, as well as people on the street. But after 1am things finally started to quiet down. Breakfast is not included and comes at a hefty price (we did not have it there). There is a cafe/bar a block away and a Chinese restaurant a few blocks down that had great service and great food!
