“Decent at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

The location is really quite out of the way. Price wise is alright but to this hotel really needs to use things like free WIFI to entice customers to stay with them. In this day and age WIFI really is as important as a working shower.

That aside, I'd skip the hotel breakfast and grab some fruits at the fruttieria 2mins away or eat at the university cafeteria that is right next door. they sell cheap water as well.

The only plus point from staying in the Basilica S. paolo neighborhood is the very relaxed atmosphere, also good is that you pass by Piramide metro station on the way back from central Rome and there is an abundance of good food in the Testaccio vicinity. Da Felice, Augustrello, Da Bucatino and Volpetti for their deli goods.

The room is alright, clean and functional, water is nice and hot and decent sized. Reception though as one other reviewer mentioned is quite dreadful. Studied my passport longer than it took customs to stamp it.

All in all avoid this hotel if possible, you can get other hotels at similar prices in better locations.

Stay away from this hotel. It is expensive, but you get only a small room with cheap and low-quality furniture (they call it "minimalistic!). Parquet on the floor, but with clear scratches on it. TV was still a huge cheap old model (no flat screen here). Shower doors didn't close well so water escaped on the floor. Small lavatory in a corner, no light over the mirror. At €150 breakfast and wifi access had to be paid separately. Thin windows glass, noise outside isn't kept out. Early morning rubbish collection awoke me this moring. And this morning the corridor was filled with a greasy taste coming from who knows where - not the smell you'd like to meet when you leave the room. At that price you can easily find better, even in Rome.

First off, let me say that this hotel is WAY off the beaten path. In fact, we kind of got lost trying to find it as we were roaming neighborhoods well outside the tourist hotspots. Also, it is about a 10 min walk from the closest metro. Oh, and it wasn't just us lost. Locals near the station weren't even aware of it so it really wasn't big by any means.

All that said, once we found it and got settled in we were pretty happy. It's a nice walk to/from the metro once you know where you are headed. I kind of liked the charm of being in a quite part of town and just seeing people roaming about their normal day-to-day lives. Also, the hotel is cute, but very small. Nothing too fantastic really, pretty standard, but it was clean and I knew what I was getting into for the price/other reviews.

This seems best suited for students or couples like us that don't mind staying a little out of the main areas to save some money(so you can spend it on more meaningful things of course).

A very minimal hotel
No restaurant or room service
No fitness center
No complimentary wifi
Staff seems to have an attitude
Shower is *really* small, literally elbow space only. Drain pipe would get clogged and will take a while to clean up.
Most likely would not stay with a family here, prefer a hotel with a restaurant/room service at least. There are no tourist spots near by the hotel as well. The nearest ATM machine is also about 0.5 km.

We stayed at the Hotel St Paul for three nights (Wednesday, Thursday & Friday nights).

We arrived at Roma Termini railway station. From there it was a Metro ride (about 15-20 minutes) to Basillica San Paulo and from there a ten minute walk to the hotel.

Check-in was good and the man at reception spoke good English and gave us a fantastic tourist map of Rome and highlighted the main tourist sites. We found that this map was more helpful than the guidebook that we had purchased before leaving home !

Our room was clean and located on the top floor (the 5th). The complaints we have about the room are
1) 1 pillow per person. This was quite flat and an additional pillow would have been welcome.
2) The hot air heater was sometimes not sufficient to keep the room warm. It was a choice of either having a noisy heater on all night or allowing the room to become somewhat chilly. I suppose, with hindsight, we should have asked for a blacket and extra pillows.

Brekfast was very good. Lots of choice. Ham, cheese, eggs (hard boiled and scrambled) and sausages (hot dog type). Tea, coffee, lots of fresh fruit. Cakes, biscuits and much more !

Wi-Fi is in the hotel but is chargeable. There's a computer in the reception area that guests may use the internet free of charge - however they suggest no more than 15 minutes of use to allow other guest to access the service.

Sadly our last night was spoilt by loud noises made a bunch of alcohol induced neandrathal idiots who found it extremely amusing to arrive back at the hotel at 3am. Not the hotels fault - but a blot on an otherwise peaceful stay.
