Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Domus Praetoria Rome
Domus Praetoria is a great little hotel
I can't say enough good things about this little hotel. It is extremely clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very nice, and the prices are very reasonable.It's a very small hotel, with only about 10 rooms, off of Termini station, but it is a gem. The neighborhood is in a nice area and everyone is very helpful even if you don't speak Italian.
