We selected Domus Australia because we are Australian and wanted to see what the Church had built. Plus it is about 10 mins walk from Termini station which suited us.
The staff were great to talk to and extremely helpful because the airline had damaged one of our cases and the checkin staff showed us where to go to replace it.
The hotel is built to resemble an old monastery complete with cloister type passage along the courtyard to the lifts. Our room was a basic standard room and was adequate for our needs. Somone staying for a few days would be advised to select a superior room as the standard has no desk. The room was clean and simply furnished whilst the bed was very comfortable and the ensuite well equiped.
The hotel has a rooftop patio but the weather was too cool for it to be opened. Would be lovely on a warm night. Below the courtyard and in front of the restaurant is another small patio and we would meet with other guests in the evening for a drink.
Breakfast is very good with a reasonable selection from cold to hot. Evening meals are excellent but expensive so we ate out most nights.
The hotel includes a chapel built alongside which is extremely lavish in design. It is like a mini Cistine Chapel and is well worth seeing.
We would stay here again if we return to Rome
