Domus Romana Hotel
Travel Blogs from Rome
... inside, we strolled around taking pictures and exploring the sections they permit tourists to enter, which was most of the above ground arena. The main floor of the arena did not withstand the test of time leaving the underground labyrinth of holding cells and chambers exposed. However, we both still really wanted to be able to go down below the structure and explore but I think that is reserved for people who fork out the money for special tours. We ...
... visited several tourist attractions. On the second day, we stopped by the Vatican, walking around St. Peter's Basilica. Lauren dropped her sunglasses behind a wall, just beyond our reach. We both tried to grab them, and a guard even came over to warn us to stay away from the wall, before he saw what we were doing. I eventually snagged them using my sunglasses as a tool. After St. Peter's Basilica, we couldn't find where the Sistine Chapel was located, ...
... break so gelati and coffee beckoned, we had been on our feet for 8 hours and we decided that we couldn't make it across the other side of the city to see the Borghese gallery for the 5pm time slot we had booked. Instead we got the metro again and got to the Spanish steps, which we didn't climb using the excuse that there were too many people sitting on them at the end of the day exhausted just like ...
... few people, and no marked taxis. I stood in disgust as I realized that the unmarked, mostly run-down cars in front of me were actually cars for hire, and my last remaining option for transportation without the ability to call a true company. Unfortunately, my fears were realized, and I got bit in the ass. A tidy-looking gentleman walked up to me and asked in well-spoken English if I needed a taxi, to which I resentfully agreed. He was in no uniform, my first warning ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Domus Romana Hotel Rome
hotel situated just of nationale street, which is a main street. when taxi dropped us of i thought oh my, were are we. it is on a narrow street with a stone archway as entrance and a small plaque telling you the name of hotel. however delighted to say once you go through the glass door the small reception is adequate and you forget about your first impression. sliding door then out to a courtyard which takes you to the breakfast room and also other rooms. there is a lift to reach floors. we were on third floor looking out onto the street. it could be noisy in morning but it was not unbearable. breakfast was buffet style and included, cereal, yoghurts, bread, cheese, ham, croissants with various fillings, orange and grapefruit juice and of course tea or coffee. all was nice and set us up nicely for the six hour walks we did everyday!
We stayed 8th - 15th January 2007 after booking through GTA hotels for a great deal. The hotel is located just off Via Nazionale but as the room we were allocated faced the internal courtyard there was absolutely no noise from the busy traffic.
Wir sind gerade erst aus Rom zurück, wo wir eine Woche Urlaub im Domus Romana Hotel gemacht haben. Wir hatten ein sehr ruhiges Zimmer mit Ausblick auf den schönen Springbrunnen auf der Terrasse. Das Zimmer war zwar nicht geräumig, aber sauber. Es hatte eine kleine Dusche und einen kleinen Fernseher. Das Frühstück übertraf das normal übliche Continentale Frühstück. Die Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit und das Bett sehr bequem. Das Hotel liegt in der Nähe der Via Nazionale und vielen wichtigen Bushaltestellen, wie z.B. Nr. 64, 40 und anderen. Dieses 4 Sterne Hotel hat viel zu unserem tollen Urlaub beigetragen.
Eines der besten Hotels, in dem ich in Rom je gewesen bin. Das Dreibettzimmer hatte zwei große Zimmer und ein Bad! Wir hatten sogar einen Wasserkocher im Zimmer. Erstklassige Möbel. Das Frühstück war kontinental und entsprach der übliche Auswahl der Hotels in Rom. Wir hatten leider keinen Adaptor an der Rezeption bekommen können, der restliche Service war allerdings sehr gut. Wir hatten das Hotel über ein Reisebüro gebucht und nur 120 Euro pro Nacht bezahlt!
Stayed in a double bed room on 3rd floor with great view of Domus Romana's court featuring their fountain. The room features a small kitchen/cooker, which is a fabulous addition for travellers who wishes to cook their own meals. There's a convenience store, Desparo, just around the corner along Via Nazioinale (about 3-4 minutes walk).
C'est l'un des meilleurs hôtels à Rome que je connaisse.
La chambre triple était constituée de deux grandes chambres et une salle de bain ! Il y avait même des plaques de cuisson.
Le mobilier était parfait.
Le petit déjeuner était classique, comme partout dans les hôtels à Rome.
Le personnel à la réception ne nous a pas fourni d'adaptateur mais dans l'ensemble le service était excellent.
Nous avons réservé l'hôtel par le biais d'une agence de voyages - la chambre triple à seulement 120 euros la nuit !
Nous revenons à peine de Rome, où nous avons passé 7 nuits au Domus Romana Hotel. Nous avions une chambre très calme, en face d'un patio avec une fontaine. La chambre n'était pas grande mais propre. Le lit était très confortable. Il y a une petite douche et une petite télévision. Mais à Rome, on n'a pas le temps de regarder la télé.
Le petit déjeuner était meilleur qu'un classique petit déjeuner. Le personnel était très sympathique et serviable. L'hôtel est très bien situé, près de la Via Nazionale et près des stations de bus très pratiques comme le 64, et le 40 entre autres.
Cet hôtel 4 étoiles a largement contribué à ce que nous passions un très bon séjour à Rome.
One of the best hotels in Rome I've ever been two.
The triple room consisted of two large rooms and a bathroom! There was even a cooker in the room.
Breakfast was continental, usual style for Rome hotels.
Staff in reception did not provide us with an adaptor but on the whole the service was excellent.
Hotel booked with a travel agent - triple room only 120 euros per ngiht!
We stayed at the Domus Romana last week and we are still thrilled to be talking about it. This hotel and Residence is actually an old converted nunnery. We had a one Bedroom suite with a small kitchenette. The suite had a gigantic living/dining room area plus a very large bedroom and large bath. We did have to change rooms after the first night due to the noise from the busy street below. They kindly let us change to a courtyard room for the rest of our seven nights with them. What a difference in rooms. The first room was very very large but the second room was more cozy and better laid out. The floors were granite throughout so bring slippers with you when you travel.
We just came back from Rome where we spent 7 nights in the Domus Romana Hotel. We stayed in a very quiet room, facing a nice patio with a fountain. The room was not spacious, but clean. The bed was very comfortable. Small shower and small TV. But in Rome we did not have time for TV.
The breakfast was beyond the usual continental breakfast.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very well located, near the Via Nazionale and near very useful bus stations such as 64, 40 and others.
This 4 stars hotel contributed a lot to our pleasant stay in Rome.
