My honey and I were guests at the Hotel Domus Praetoria in Rome for three nights from November 21 – 24, 2007. The 5 star reviews in Trip Advisor on this hotel are accurate. The best part of our stay in the hotel was the superior attention to customer service from the owners and operators of the hotel, the Menichelli brothers. The hotel even picked-up our Trenitalia train tickets from the main station and mailed them to us in the USA and then answer every tourist question we threw at them in Rome.
Our room #210 was oversized, even by US standards. We enjoyed wood floors, high ceilings, a granite tile bathroom, an excellent king size bed, and lots of storage space. Breakfast each morning included fresh fruit, Italian pastries, yogurt, juice, and their new espresso machine worked perfectly.
The hotel is a quick five-minute walk from the main train station in Rome and is located in a larger condo complex. The map provided on the hotels web site allowed us to walk straight to the complex’s door to ring the bell to find the lobby of the hotel. If you are looking for a hotel with a large lobby and a pool I would suggest another hotel at more than twice the price. However, I wonder if the service will be better?
The hotel rates were fair, the service and room were superior, and the location was convenient to the train station, and neighborhood was safe. I also enjoyed the market that was on the street right in front of the hotel. Another bonus was the convenience of boarding the express train that went directly to the airport from the main train station only 5 minutes from the hotel.
Overall we highly recommend the Hotel Domus Praetoria in Rome and would stay with the Menichelli brothers when we return to Rome.
