      Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Hotel Nova Domus Rome

      Nice hotel great location

      from

      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*

      from

      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.

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

I missed the shuttle bus, most likely I was at the wrong stop but after waiting an hour I figured it wasn’t coming. So a metro and bus ride later I was standing directly opposite the place. Unfortunately due to re-construction of the ...

      ... searching bike friendly trains. Some pages default to Le Frecce - fast trains (literally, "arrows"). You need to choose the "Tutti i Treni" tab. Our bikes are terrific, well geared, and they handle well. With four panniers, I felt as confident descending as I am on my road bike. However, when I rode Helen's bike carrying perhaps half the weight, in two rear panniers, I was struck by how unstable it was. Four panniers is better. The difficulty Helen has with ...

      ... got our stuff organized. We had to check in for our flight from Paris to Dublin so we printed those out just so we had them and then we made our way to the Colosseum because we already bought tickets and didn't have to wait in line and we were only a ten minute walk from it. That was really interesting, so weird to think that it is how old it is. It does not seem real. After we finished at the Colosseum we walked to the main area of the city to find some place to ...

Started in the 2nd century and in use through the 4th century, these are the largest of Rome's catacombs. Located just south of the city walls just off the Appian Way (outside the walls because no one could be buried inside the walls for sanitary reasons), these catacombs were the official ...
