... worked out. You just never know what you are going to get. The whole apartment was sloping and all the doors would open by themselves;) At least I don't have to live there! The owner was very nice and printed our reserved tickets for us so we didn't have to wait in a huge line at the Vatican Museum. Our first stop - the Vatican! On the way I needed some lunch and grabbed a sandwich at a little place. It was the best food ...
Today I took a guided tour of Vatican City. We visited some of the museums, the Sistine chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. This was the worst part of my trip so far - I hated it. Sure the paintings and stuff was beautiful but it was so crowded I felt like I was in Walmart on Christmas Eve. I thought about leaving 30 mins in - it was a 3.5 hour ...
... had booked a tour so that we could skip lines and also be told a bit about the Vatican and its museums as we went around. The tour was for 1.15pm so we had the morning just to wonder around and see some more stuff. We found Piazza Navona and the Fountain of the Four Rivers which was part of the Angels & Demons book. We also found Castel Sant'Angelo which is a pretty impressive looking fortress outside of the Vatican which was used by the Pope when they were under seige in the ...
... a rose thrust in your face with the offer to buy, we realised that wherever you go you will most likely come across people wanting you to buy everything and anything. With the wave of my hand they soon got the point that having been scammed once today we were not prepared to be done over again. Found a terrific restaurant not far from where we are staying that has the best food and wine of our time in Italy so far. Our Waiter was great and as he is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Domus Romana Hotel Rome
Clean, pleasant, comfy.
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!
hotel is about a 10 minute walk to trevi fountain and spanish steps. about 15 mins to the pantheon and about 20 or so to the colloseum. all sites are walkable too but do bring comfy shoes as you will walk everywhere. vatican city is about an hours walk away. we got taxi to it and walked back.
clean rooms every day without fail. staff friendly and helpful. kitchenette in room with hob and a fridge this however contains the mini bar but im sure you could find room for whatever you wanted to put in it. plenty of cutlery, cups, plates etc, although we did not use.
all in all would stay in this hotel again if i was to return to rome.
Excellent hotel in excellent location
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.
Getting around is so easy to all the major sites and the January sales on Via Nazionale and Via del Corso were excellent too.
The room was clean, spacious - with the added bonus of a large living room and private roof terrace alongside a huge bedroom and bathroom - room was cleaned daily and the breakfast buffet offered a better selection than most Roman hotel fayre: salami, sweet breads, yoghurts, cereals, etc.
Staff were friendly, helpful and bi-lingual. The hotel also offers a transfer service to Ciampino airport for 50euro.
All in all a fantastic holiday which was added to by staying in a wonderful hotel. Would recommend to everyone.
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!
Excellent location, excellent service, and cleanliness
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).
All other main attraction sites like the Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps square (Piazza di Spagna), Colosseum, Piazza Novana, etc. are all within 25-45 minutes walking distances.
There's no curfews although the main doors are locked after 23:00 for security reasons where a buzzer is available on the outside to catch the attention of the reception staffs. Most staffs are bilingual and English is not a problem.
Breakfast are served from 07:00 to 10:30. Sweet breads, croissants, and cakes, salami, ham, and cheese are usually served. Cereals, milk, filtered coffee, tea, yogurts, and plain bread are also available.
It's a 15 minutes walk from the main train station (Stazione Termini) and getting to and from the airport is a piece of cake.
It's a great place to stay and I would definitely recommend it to all wishing to stay in the center of Rome for an affordable price.
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!
What a lovely place
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 found the location to be fantastic. You could walk to the ancient areas in a 15 minute walk, you could hop on one of the three bus lines that ran down the Via Nationzale in front of the hotel, or you could take the subway from Repulica. This hotel and residence is also close to Termini, the main train station and transportation hub in Rome.
The concierges David and Poala were suberb and went out of their way to make sure we had a marvelous vacation. The breakfast was quite nice. It was a little more than a typical continental breakfast. Besides the standard fare, they added meats and cheeses to the table. They also had European yogurts, croissants, cakes and cereals there too. The beds were very comfortable, which is of highest importantance to me and my bad back.
All in all, I have no trouble rating this hotel five stars because it was indeed excellent. If we ever get the opportunity to return to Rome this is the only place we would stay.
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.
