The only good thing I have to say about this place is the location, which is fabulous! We were in very easy walking distance of the main attractions of Rome, including the Vatican City and the Spanish Steps. On the other hand, however, there is nothing else to mention that is positive about this place. Firstly, the rooms are incredibly... More

Relatively basic B&B, often used by groups, which may mean high level of noise, people running up and down stairs etc. Rooms OK, all with wc and showers ensuite. Bus stop around the corner. Avoid the very basic breakfast, go to the bar around the corner for a caffè latte and a cornetto instead. Location, on the other hand, is... More

We had stayed in a convent previously and had a delightful experience, so we were hoping this would be similar. How wrong! Our room was miniscule with miniscule bathroom. VERY noisy from street noise, I hardly got any sleep (window was closed). We complained to the sisters, and they got defensive and huffy. After much wrangling and unpleasantness, they agreed... More

We first stayed at Fraterna Domus in 2006 with the kids (triple room), and this year when I brought my mom to Rome, I could not think of any better place to stay. The location is fabulous, we only walked everywhere for 3 days, never having to take any other mode of transport around the city. Staff very friendly, from... More

My sister and her husband had never been to Rome before and we wanted to give them a great taste of the wonderful city. Included in this wish was a return visit to Fraterna Domus for evening dinner. We were not disappointed. The welcome was warm and the food delicious. As I understand it, fresh ingredients are purchased each day... More

NOTE: This review is only about the restaurant of Fraterna Domus. We did not stay overnight. After reading a lot of great reviews, our group of 8 made a reservation and walked a couple of kms to this unassuming place. It was a little confusing when we got there -- hard to determine exactly how to get in, and where... More

what we spent, and what we got for what we spent, has become the running joke of our vacation. once the laugh is done, i can't help but feel like this place is symbolic of how some businesses expect tourism to compensate for the weakness of the local, national or regional economy. in this case, we got some basic pasta...

What a find! Had a great experience here. The room was basic yet super clean. Small room but adequate for me and my husband. The included breakfast was typical Italian style with crusty bread, cheese, coffee. They also served fruits and crackers. I wasn't able to make it to dinner but we were able to join them for lunch and... More

I learned about Fraterna Domus from the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide on Italy. It was on the list of restaurants in the Piazza Navona area, not on the hotel list. After my family and I finished our visit to the magnificent square on a beautiful sunny summer day we felt hungry and consulted the guide book for some places to... More
