Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Hotel Nova Domus Rome
Nice hotel great location
we had a very good holiday at the nova domus hotel. staff very helpful, from our room on the top floor we had a nice view on S. Peter Dome. We even had our breakfast al fresco. Vatican at wolking distance, shopping center as well, and the subway stop at just 5 minutes walking distance allowed us to visit the city at the best condition. We reccomend to all our friends, it was really a very nice stay.
Definitely not 4*
We stayed in the hotel at the end of January 2004. We had a standard double room which was small. The lobby and corridors were nicely decorated, but the rooms were barely 2* standard (if that). The rooms were not finished as there were unpainted walls. I┬ m not sure whether they were planning on finishing the rooms. The linen and towels were old and threadbare. There was mold in the shower (there was running hot water). The hotel reception staff was not friendly, did not make us feel welcome but was not rude in any way. The breakfast was good and the staff in the breakfast area were nice. There was not much in the way of restaurants in the area, and we did wonder around for some time looking for something other than a ┬ pizzeria┬ . The rooms in the hotel are not four star standard, but comparable to a low end Quality Inn / Red Roof Inn in the US.
Disappointed. Not 4* in my opinion.
We stayed in a standard double room in January 2004 for 5 nights. Our room was small, and wasn't in the best of condition. We had a small pipe coming out of the ceiling, fixtures and fittings were not up to scratch - some missing or loose and the walls were noticably grubby/dirty. We were also woken every morning at 8.30 by builders working above us - not very good at all for a holiday lie in. The bathroom was grand, and had good shower.
Generally I do not think the hotels staff made us feel welcome enough, no recognitions when we returned or passed them - even a simple hello/ciao makes all the difference.
The hotels location was good, handy for the vatican as another reviewer said, and not too far to the metro station Cipro to go to spanish steps area/other. Area around the hotel was average if slightly run down, we spent most of our time in and around the spanish steps / navona / pantheon areas travelling there by metro only 2/3 stops away.
Breakfast was very good, wide selection of contential type fair and hot bacon & eggs. We also ate in the hotels restaurant which was had both good quality and service.
Overall I can't say I recommend the hotel in its current state, I presume they were renevating at the time, but still to put guests in rooms above/below rooms being renovated is not good - especially for a supposed 4* hotel. I do not think this rating was reflected in our experience at all.
Nice Rooms in Residential Location
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for several nights in early 2004. We had a "junior suite" which was extremely nice with a great bathroom.
The standard rooms appeared to be much smaller.The hotel has the "feel" of a family-owned type establishment.
The hotel is located in excellent proximity to the Vatican, but not so good if you want to spend your time near the Spanish Steps or Trevi Fountain. The closest Metro stop is about 3-4 blocks from the hotel.
Quality Hotel Nova Domus - Recommended
We stayed 4 nights at this hotel in October 2003 and would recommend it. The room was large, clean and comfortable, with good fittings and furnishings. The complimentary breakfast was fine - if a little chaotic some mornings! We found the hotel - which is minutes walk away from two underground stations - an extremely convenient location for visiting almost all of the main tourist attractions. Its proximity to the Vatican was ideal. The local area also contained a good variety of shops etc. In terms of getting to the hotel, get the airport bus that goes to the nearest Metro - its then a straight run on Line A to Cipro; cost was about 3 euros versus about 35 for a taxi.
Friendly & helpful Italians if you try the lingo
If you enjoy the adventure of getting there under your own steam, and you are travelling light, don't get the taxi from Fumicino airport to Rome centre. Go by train. It's half the price and very clean and on time. We travelled for 25minutes to the Termini (main station), jumped on the Metro some 10 minutes later arrived at Cipro station, which was a five minute walk to the hotel.We were greeted in a friendly manner and we were in our room five minutes later. We satyed at the Novo Domus for 4 nights in November 03. It is a ten minute walk to the Vatican City.The food was good and varied at the hotel. Although we struggled to find restraurants that opened in the early evening in Rome it's self.When we took in the sights we picked up a tip, which is don't queue at the Colessium, go to the Plantino just down the road and get your ticket there. It is valid for both venues. That will save you a 40 minute wait.We had a great time in Rome the people hear so much english they become battle weary with it. They appreciated the time taken to speak Italian. Try it it not that hard!!Would we do the same trip again? Yes!!!
Very Nice Hotel
We stayed here for three days in May 2003. Very nice hotel, clean, good water pressure (!), and quite nice by "American" standards. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was large and clean - beds not very comfortable though. We had a triple and there was a small "sitting room" with a pull out couch which was nice. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Vatican museum, but pretty far from everything else. The Cipro metro stop is only 10 minutes away though and from there you can get close to most tourist attractions. There are a number of nice restaurants in the area that are not "tourist traps." The hotel also has its own restaurant which wasn't bad in price or food quality . The complimentary breakfast is excellent. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

... Four rivers is a theater in the round, whose leading actor is the movement and sound of water splashing over and cascading down a mountain of travertine marble. The masterpiece was finally unveiled to the world on June 12, 1651, to joyous celebration and the inevitable criticisms of the day. Then as today the Fountain of the Four Rivers continues to amaze and entertain visitors to Rome. Bernini triumphs yet again!
... the rain to Termini and walked through the gusting wind to Hotel Sonya, where Carol, Tony and Erik checked in. We ate delicious porchetta panini at a little hole-in-the-wall place with only 3 tables, a tap that delivers the house wine, and porchetta that is so simple and delicious that it has kept people coming back since 1890, so they must be doing something right!

First a little about the neighbourhood I am staying in. It is very close to the Colli Albani metro stop. There are only 2 metro lines in Rome, a third is under construction. Apparently everytime they start to gig a new line they uncover more ancient Roman ruins. My metro stop is only about 15 mins from the main area of ancient Rome. Its certainly not ...
... less than $30 AUD.
Next stop was ROME. With it being one of the oldest Italian cities, it was sure not to disappoint. We visited the Spanish Steps, Plaza Montecitorio, Plaza Colona, Victor Emmanuel Monument, Piazza Novena, Pantheon, Forum Ruins, Colosseum, and so many more but a few favourites were the popular Trevi Fountain and the Vatican City.
Vatican city had a line up around the corner so it was suggested ...
... Ethan was incredibly disappointed when we couldn't find a slab of marble called Lapis *****, which is the oldest known relic in the Forum. It was covered and further excavation was going on in the area. It was fun to see everyone so enthralled by the Arch of Titus; the Temple of Antoninus Pius and Faustina, whose temple door stands quite a distance for the Forum's ground level; and the spot where Mark Antony burned Julius ...
