... in the early 4th century!)—I see new sights every day, even along familiar routes!
The market was busier than ever (well, than last weekend when I went there for the first time)! Crazy busy, especially the 2 most popular produce vendors, which is where I wanted to buy my cut vegetables and roma tomatoes (of course!). I squeezed my way through the crowd (really, no exaggeration) and pulled number 45—they were serving number 81 (again, ...
Very sad to be leaving Positano, hopefully I can return again soon... I did invest in a book, 24 walks on the Amalfi coast, so maybe one day soon? After an hour delay in Naples, due to a body on the train tracks.. Whatever that meant, we were on our way. An hour late we arrived in Rome. Of course now we needed to find our way to our hotel!!! We purchased a map and off we went, down ...

... ended up shooting two officers and 4 civilians. Pretty freaky stuff. There was no sign of it when we were there that afternoon and did not find out about it until we got home that day. Certainly glad we were not around when it happened. After leaving the Parliament building we walked to the Pantheon and had some amazing gelato! I've never had so much gelato in my life, and I love it! Sooo good! The Pantheon is a building that was commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during ...
... ate bread and water as representations of the body and blood of the bull. Sound familiar? The early Christians thought so too, and were fervently against the cult, feeling the practices were too close to their own. Its ironic that Rome's best preserved Mithraic temple lies beneath the beautiful Christian Basilica di San Clemente." The temple was rather small and plain. Would have been interesting to see how it was decorated and furnished when it was a working cult. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Domus Aurea Rome
We stayed at this hotel for one night at either end of our Italy trip. On the first occasion, when we had asked for a quiet, no-smoking room, we were given one right by the cleaners' storage room in which they gathered from 7 in the morning, chain-smoking and talking loudly. Anything you touched in the shower would come off in your hand or fall on your feet. Finally, the girl at reception was more interested in talking on the phone than helping us with directions. The last night was better, although it had in common with the first: 1) that the room needed redecorating, 2) that the matresses were too old and too soft (you could feel every single spring) and 3) that the coffee (I remind you that we are talking Italy here) was thoroughly horrible - the pot kept on the buffet was of course disgusting, but even the specially ordered cappucino was instant and the specailly ordered espresso was disgusting (cheapest coffee on the planet). Avoid, but if you must stay here, make sure you do not get room 509 and go to breakfast early if you want something resembling bread.
The location of the Domus Aurea is superb. The termini is very close as it the bus station and taxi ranks. It is also still in walking distance to most of the main sites and you will see much more of the city this way!
The rooms very clean and functional. They were small but fairly quiet for Rome with good black out curtains. One warning - they do not turn the air con on before June 15th no matter what the temperature! Breakfast isn't up to much, better off eating out
We took an overnight break from a two week stay in Sorrento to visit Rome and it was well worth it. The Coliseum and Vatican City are a must to visit.
Very good location!
Domus Aurea is a very good hotel, clean, safe, with a helpful staff. The best thing is the location, it's very close to Roma Termini, Rome's main train station, 5 minutes walking. There,
you can take the subway to go everywhere, Coliseum, Forum Romano, Vaticano, etc.
If you're looking for good location, Domus Aurea is the choice.
Well placed near temini rail station, helpful staff, beware of scicillian cafe near by for over charging though, 6 euros for 2 cokes! Rooms air conditioned.
Nice, clean, comfortable
My family and I stayed at the hotel for three nights and we were very happy with the service. The best way to describe the hotel is that it is simple and clean, so if you are looking for luxury this is not the hotel for you. We had a triple room and it was comfortable. The staff is very friendly plus their website was accurate and there were no hidden charges. It is about three blocks from the train station, the metro and one of the main bus stops in the city. So getting to all the attractions in Rome was easy. We were a bit concerned that it would be noisy with the train station so close, but it wasn't. Their breakfast was pretty good compared to other hotels except for the eggs, but they made up for it with the view from the breakfast room.
My 13-year old daughter and I stayed in a room for 2 at the Domus Aurea Hotel and could barely move around. There was no place to put our clothes except a tiny wardrobe with only 3 hangers. The room and bathroom were clean and attractive, but unbelievably small. The staff for the most part were friendly but I would not say they were all fluent in English, just enough to get by. The breakfast was OK but the eggs were always cold and the coffee sometimes cold. I don't know if other rooms were larger but looking at the floor plan in the room, not many were. It's close to Termini was I found to be an OK area, even in the evening. Close to Metro and the buses was a real plus. Only a few homeless and beggars on the sidewalks. I'd book early and get the best rate, otherwise find a hotel with larger rooms.
We stayed at the Hotel Domus Aurea in March 2004. The hotel is very nice. The rooms are stylishly decorated with updated bathrooms. The hotel staff are pleasant and helpful. They speak English well. The breakfast is excellent and served on the rooftop!! The only drawbacks of this hotel are: 1) Location: It is close to the train station, which is both good and bad. Good because the main metro stop is located there ...so easy access to sites. Bad because it is not in the best part of town ( a little scary sometimes).
2) TV: The TV's only partly English speaking station was MTV. There was a Pay TV option for movies in English but no CNN or BBC. Overall a very nice hotel.
Stayed at the Domus Aurea in March after booking it on Expedia.com. Was worried that the room would not be as nice as the picture made out but it really was exactly the same. A green and yellow themed room which was very clean, and a lovely marble bathroom with all amenities such as shower cap/shampoo/soaps etc. The room even had a sewing kit! A buffet breakfast was included in the price and included different meats/cheeses/lots of fresh bread which you cut yourself/fruit/yoghurts/cakes/cereal/croissants & pastries, and even a cooked breakfast if you choose. The breakfast room looks over some old Roman Baths - the view was amazing. Definitely recommend this hotel.
