This newly opened hotel is situated in a quiet residential area of Rome, only a 5-minute walk to the Saint Peter's Basilica and 15 minutes from the Vatican Museums.
Nearby you will find numerous restaurants, pizza al taglio places or gelaterias offering delicious Italian food and sweets. Rome's major tourist sights can be reached on foot in only 30 minutes or by taking a bus from nearby bus stop.
The hotel is not easy to spot from the main street because it is not signposted. When you arrive at the address you will notice a large brown door where you need to ring the bell and step into the courtyard where the Hotel Paolo II is situated.
The hotel's rooms are large with comfortable beds and quality bed linen. Guests can choose from single, economy double and large double (or twin) rooms decorated in brown and beige tones.
Each of 15 rooms has a large wardrobe where you can store all your clothes, a table and chair, bedside tables with lamps and a flat screen TV with satellite channels.

The Hotel Paolo II offers breakfast from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m. in a small restaurant next to the reception. The breakfast is basic and includes hot drinks, juices, fruits, butter, jams, cereals, sandwiches etc. If the breakfast is not included in the room price, you need to pay €4 for it.
Staff at the reception are very kind and helpful and they will do their best to make your stay at the hotel pleasant.
When you step from the hotel on the main road, you will notice "Mastro Pistacchio Gelateria & Pasticceria" situated just across the street. This cute little place offers amazing sweets, coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolates, granite, juices etc. We recommend amazing Sicilian cannoli which comes in two sizes - small and large. These creamy sweets can be filled with ricotta or pistachio cream. They also have authentic gelato (which is kept in a container) several flavours (hazelnut, almond, coconut, pistachio, chocolate, fruits etc). This place is ideal for both a morning coffee with a pastry or afternoon treat so be sure to visit it while here.
