As stated in previous reviews, this hotel is a converted monastery which means it is a very interesting place to stay. It's not much else though. Wifi is available but only in the common areas and the connection/speed isn't great. The rooms have a bit of a hostel feel to them, don't expect much more than a place to rest... More

Nice area to stay. The church at the hotel and the others at the end of the park are amazing. You probably would never get to see these if you did not stay in this area.Nice and close to the metro or tram. In the evenings at the end of the park there is an open area with tents serving... More

We booked this hotel on the day we arrived in Rome as a replacement for the hotel we originally booked which was awful... The staff in the Domus Sessoriana where so welcoming when we arrived and even let us take our room 3 hours earlier then the booking in time. The Hotel itself is an old monastery and looks amazing...

This is a unique hotel. The outside is very impressive, the inside very interesting and very old. The oval window of our room (number 10) opened up into the dome of the basilica and we were awakened from our siesta by the beautiful noise of Sunday Mass. That's where it all ended though.... The first room we were given had... More

This is an average hotel with no apparent flaws or positive points to talk about. The locations is entertaining, it is in fact in a church. The place has competent and helpful staff, do not hesitate to ask for help from them. They do not reserve a perfect raiting though, wifi is only available in the longue, and the entrance... More

Many travelers now seek accommodation in “historic hotels.” In Europe, converted monasteries and palaces are among the most popular building types remodeled for tourists. Domus Sessoriana is both of these. It was in the Palace Sessoriana that Helena, Emperor Constantine’s mother, deposited part of Jesus’ cross that she legendarily found in Jerusalem. The palace was later refashioned as a church,... More

Dear guest, very few among our guests spend their own time seeking historical information about the site where Domus Sessoriana is located. We are very pleased to know that you are aware not only about the church of Holy Cross in Gerusalem but the other churches of Rome as well. As you well pointed out this is a very ancient... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in March 2013 (I just forgot to write a review so had to select March 14) We really loved the whole place, it's so unique. Our room was quite small but we've had much smaller. It was very clean with a terrace outside. The rooms were very quiet and the location is good for... More

Staying in such a beautiful site is a lovely experience. The hotel is within walking distance of metro,tram,and visits to some known historic sites.We had a beautiful spacey room with basic interior and not as clean as we expected based on previous reviews. The staff, except for the breakfast attendants, are friendly and very willing to assist you. What is... More

Not impressed with staff at all. Housekeeping left room door unlocked & reception staff completely unconcern and unhelpful. Not an easy place to find. Rooms ok although basic. Building itself is impressive, well maintain. Would not be going back to stay here.
