“Perfect place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

I had read the reviews in Tripad and booked it for a day. Was bit apprehensive about the location as few people mentioned about strange looking people. But you dont even have to worry, a 5 to 10 min walk from termini just cannot be unsafe at all. There was a small road market on sunday morning which in no way disturbed us as we hardly realized until we came out of the hotel.
By far the biggest room we stayed during our 15 day stay in europe.
The person in the reception was really friendly.
An indian restaurant serving very good food just opposite to the hotel was an added advantage to us. Would definetely recommend this place for its wonderful price. Take the building # and the road name to locate it easily. I dont remember seeing any board or signs of the hotel. If you are using the shuttle from the airport to termini, the hotel gets nearer as the shuttle stops right opposite to this road.

Domas Praetoria is a charming little hotel with lots of character, from the huge wooden entry doors to the tiny elevator. The 16 rooms are on two different floors so we found it to be very quiet. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The breakfast room has a nice patio and the fresh baked goods are excellent. The neighborhood has numerous sidewalk cafes so walking to dinner is a pleasant experience. The rooms are all very individual and all comfortably Italian. The hotel has numerous safeguards to security. Overall it was a pleasant fun experience.

Room Tip: Our room was very spacious. You may ask to see the rooms available.

I stayed in this hotel for a night last week while on transit in Rome. I was able to locate the hotel very quickly and easily by following the directions that came with my booking. The hotel is only a short walk from the Rome termini, supermarkets and eateries. It is also a comfortable walk to a few other attractions (I walked to and from the Colosseum and Fontana di Trevi). Staff are extremely nice and helpful. I arrived Rome on a 13-hour overnight flight and had very little sleep during the flight. The front desk staff was really kind to get my room ready early so that I could check-in and have some sleep. My room was spacious, quiet and clean. Breakfast was simple but sufficient and with good coffee. Overall, I am extremely satsified with my stay.

An easy few minute walk from the Rome termini and 15-20 minute walk from the Colosseum.Staff are very friendly and helpful.The rooms are very clean and quiet. They provided a continental breakfast and each cup of coffee was made fresh.
I would highly recommend this hotel and would love to go back someday.

Location: An easy 5 Minute walk from the Rome Termini.
Staff: Staff are friendly, helpful and speak reasonable English
Accommodation: The rooms are quiet, spacious, comfortable and clean. The buffet breakfast served was very ordinary. Even though most city areas nearby to rail stations seem to attract seedy characters we found this area of Rome to be a safe area both daytime and night.
Would I Recommend: Definitely, but I would also explore other options first.

This is a family owned hotel. The family who owns it is very accommodating. They all spoke English and made us feel very welcome. They helped with arrangements to the Vatican and suggested restaurants, and provided excellent directions and a map. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. The location was excellent and not threatening and we felt very safe, although we did not venture out after dark as we were exhausted. Our room overlooked the street and I enjoyed waking up to see the market each day. They provided a continental breakfast and each cup of coffee was made fresh. I certainly miss the Coffee as it was excellent ! I would highly recommend this hotel and would love to go back someday.

Stayed for 3 nights prior to cruising for 7 days, and 1 night prior to returning home. Family run, with Massimo in particular, and his brother being most helpful in assisting us during our 4 days in Rome. The outside does not reflect the quality of the interior rooms, which are spotless and entirely adequate for our visit. Within 2/3 mins walk from Termini station for trains and metros, hence ideal for airport transfers by train, and for metros to all the sites such as Trevi, Vatican and Colesseum etc.

Room Tip: Requested a quiet room upon booking, and were accommodated with a large room for the 3 night stay, w...
