Domus Fontis
Ranked #604 of 3,734 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is at a great location, just by Fontana di trevi. The issue was that the room was very cold, due to outside temperature was about 10-15 degrees and Italians don't know what heating is :). Otherwise ok room, but the breakfast served on a trolley to the room was nothing to cheer for.

Believe what you read, four of us stayed two nights here In mid October. Steps from Trevi Fountain, and in the center of Rome. We drove in - which can be difficult, but found it quickly. Be aware you have to search for address - its on the Fifth floor of a building - and is not marked except on the call panel outside. Modern appointments, very quiet - five or six individual rooms. Continental breakfast - croissants and coffee, packaged meat and cheese. Very clean. It was a welcome location at the end of long days.. Deborah was wonderful. Shower was exceptional. It was higher priced than some we reviewed, but less than upscale hotels..

We stayed here for 4 nights and were impressed all round. Central location means you can walk (20-30mins max) to every major sight in rome - Trevi (30 seconds), Spanish steps, coliseum etc. Rooms are converted from an apartment but are spacious and modern. Breakfast ok but they have a nespresso machine so not too bad. Call ahead to arrange arrival time. Location - if you are facing Trevi, walk down the road at the front-left side of the fountain and the entrance is opposite a takeaway pizza place

This place is so centrally located that you could hit both the Trevi Fountain and Zara's with a rock thrown from the front door. You'll need to call to arrange access, particularly if arriving outside the posted hours. The place is dead quiet inside with the windows closed and the air conditioning on in spite of the many thousands gathered just down the street. The beds are comfortable, the pillows nearly so. It's a little Spartan but new and clean. Breakfast is brought to the room at the agreed upon time. You'll see sugar laden croissants, cheese, cold cuts, bread, yogurt and milk. All good.

Great location, literally 20 metres from the Trevi Fountain. Our room was gorgeous, very clean and air conditioning was great (and needed!) bathroom was brand new. Breakfast was basic, pre-packaged croissants and cold meats, yogurt etc.
Be aware that the owner does not actually live at the premises but rather outside of Rome central and is only contactable by mobile phone so you are literally renting a room and you’re on your own, there is no 24hour reception, I think this is important and worth mentioning. The owner was very helpful in arranging our airport transfer and was an excellent communicator!

Ultra modern defines the Domus Fontis. A lovely place to stay for my daughter and myself in the beautiful city of Rome. Awakening early one morning I was able to share the Trevi Fountain with a newly married couple taking some photos at this location. I wasn't sure but it might have been a modeling shoot. Either way, the location was perfect for both our pleasure without the crowds. We used the nearby metro to get to St. Peter's and a cab to return. The location was right on on of Rick Steve's walking tours and we just followed along, losing ourselves in the twists and turns of Roman streets. 50 plus hours in not near enough for this city but staying at the Domus Fontis makes the short stay a pleasure. The staff were very helpful in arranging a car to return to the FCO at the early hour that we needed. I liked the food vendors nearby for a little bedtime snack.

I really can't find anything negative to write about Domus Fontis... It is more of an hotel than a B & B really. It is located in a recently converted flat (about 8 months ago) on the 5th floor of a traditional roman building, which is literally located 20 meters from the Trevi fountain (so very central for everything). The owners are very nice and helpful. They are very well organised and have many suggestions to help you organise your visit of the city.
There are four rooms, which are elegantly decorated and equipped with modern furniture (including a safe, free WiFi, and an expresso machine). The en-suite bathroom is sparkling clean and serviced daily with fresh towels. Beds are very comfortable and the house is very quiet.
The breakfast also is very nice (served in the room but there is only one chair to sit though).
Overall, a hidden gem in the heart of the city, and a much better option than most hotels in the area.
