          This is an incredibly impressive looking hotel from the outside, but it's in a strange part of the city. It's not close to anything touristy, but it's only a 5 minute walk to the metro which can bring you into the city center. The staff were ok, and the rooms were decent. Nothing too great, but nice enough. The breakfast in the restaurant was pretty good.

          Great Value


          Situated just on the outskirts of Rome with Metro station very near (5 min walk). Located in own grounds and very quiet. We were there as part of a group of 18 and staff in the hotel couldnt do enough for us. Rooms clean, high ceilings, large windows, good sized bathrooms, adequate breakfast and very comformable lobby's and courtyard near bar downstairs. If ever back in Rome we would have no hesitation in re-visiting this hotel.

          A great hotel in great grounds


          A pleasant hotel situated on the edge of the city, thus getting there was either by taxi or the Metro. The station to use is Cornelia which is about 800 yards away although there are no directions to the hotel anywhere. Best to ask. It is set well away from the road and quiet, away from all the traffic noise. Booking in and out was no problem. The staff generally had a good grasp of english and were in the main helpful. They advertise the use of a swimming pool at a nearby hotel but didn't know the telephone number or the cost which was 5 euros !

          Rooms were nicely air conditioned and the breakfasts filling. Would use it again.

          Simply Fabulous!


          It was a very picturesque and very delightful stay! The people were very sweet and helpful and the location was very convenient to the metro! It really made our stay in the Eternal City that little bit more fabulous! We were thoroughly satisfied!

          Near Metro station Cornelia


          Other than having to wait 5 hours past check-in we were very pleased with this hotel. The staff was helpful (they even recognized us personally during our 9 day stay). The hotel is set back about 200 meters from the street which is important in noisy Rome. The hotel is 2 blocks (400 to 500 meters) from the Cornelia Metro (subway) entry. No part of the tourist areas are over 20 minutes away!

          Also, if a window is important to you make sure you don't get assigned to the 4th floor; you will only get a skylight. We stayed on the 4th floor and it did not bother us since we only slept there and never really stayed in the room.

          The hotel offer a free full breakfast from 7:00 to 11:00 AM.

          Absolutely terrible


          We had the single most worst time of our lives at this establishment. We had to wait 7 our past our check-in time to get a room, after they sent us to 2 rooms that were under construction! They have no sattilite tv,(as advertised) no restaurant(as advertised) and the people there are rude. You would of thought they were paying us to stay there!

          Please don't go here!

          Very Clean


          My husband and I are Americans living in Italy and stayed in Rome for the weekend. We were very impressed with the Hotel Domus Mariae. The rooms were small which is very typical of a European hotel. The bathrooms were very nice and very clean. The walls in the room were not decorated making the room look a little bare but you could tell that the walls had been freshly painted. The staff spoke English and were very accomodating; they let us check in hours before the scheduled check in time. The hotel is VERY close to a Metro station which makes exploring the city convenient. The hotel is also on it's own gardens making the evenings very quiet. By the way, if you have kids there is a McDonald's around the corner for quick snacks. I look forward to staying here again!

          A smart place to stay in Rome


          Had a block of three rooms for our family vacation to Rome. The hotel staff were extremely helpful. Most understood English. The morning buffet was always worth looking forward to. The rooms were cozy and kept clean. The bathrooms were first class (great showers). The hotel grounds were park-like with beautiful trees. The morning views were great in March with the misty mornings. The hotel is located (not central, though) (2 mile walk to the vatican) at almost the end of the Metro Line A. We did not try the buses as we were satisfied with the metro. Would love to return to Rome and would most likely try to stay at the Domus Mariae. Finally, the hotel was frequented by large groups on tour buses (probably the exceptional value) but the staff kept everything smooth.

          Today was a long busy day. It was yet again another 6am early wake-up call because we had to leave early for Pompeii and Sorrento. After a few hours on the bus we arrived in Pompei, an ancient Roman city that was destroyed by the volcanic explosion of Mount Vesuvius back in 79 A.D.. About 20,000 residents lived in the city at the time of the …

          When I looked at the itinerary for this trip one of the places that I was really excited to see was the Colossum. I have heard so much about it and have seen so many pictures of it through the years, both in school and through friends who have traveled here. We took the metro in the morning and it took us right to the entrance of the site. Before …

          In relation to the past few days, today was a pretty low key day. We had a guided tour of the vatican museum where we got to see some incredible artwork done by the likes of Michael Angelo and Sandro Botticeli. My favorite part of the tour was getting to see the Sistine Chapel. This is the home of the Papal Conclave where all cardinal members …
