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.

I was very confused and we really had no idea where/what we were doing (doug side note: the lady that sold us the ticket told us to go back to Termini and take the number 40 or the number 64 bus). I asked a few times if we could take a taxi, but db said no. So we wandered around and around until we got ...
... it just looks like another old building but when we saw a group of tourists being led by a guide to this place, we decided to have a look and it was a wise decision... I guess "Wisdom of Crowds" rarely is proven wrong !!
This meaning of Scala Sancta is Holy Stairs. According to the Catholic tradition, these are the steps that led up to the praetorium of Pontius Pilate in Jerusalem, which Jesus Christ stood on during his Passion on his way to trial. The ...
... and we arrived in Rome at about 7.45am.
Well, Rome airport is a very different sight to Singapore. Smaller, older and nowhere as clean. We did notice there were some pretty major building works going on, perhaps new terminals? We actually exited the plane via steps onto the tarmac and then were transported via bus back to the main terminal. Unlike Singapore where we had a private transfer, this time we were in a small ...
