We very much enjoyed our stay the nights of Nov. 1,2 and 3, 2011! I was using a wheel chair and a walker and found the room very well equipped for me. It was large enough for the wheel chair to fit in the door and move around the room. The bathroom was very large and had safety bars and a pull down plastic seat and movable shower head which worked very well for me to use. The glass doors on the shower opened up and the entrance to the shower was flat so that I could easily get in and out.
There was a small elevator that I was able to use to get into the building. (I was told that a new one was being built with the new patio to access the main lobby area which would be more convenient.)
The front desk people were very helpful and polite. The lounge was nice and access to WIFI good. The breakfast room and sleeping rooms were cheery and bright. The food was great! The rooftop patio was beautiful and had a fantastic view of St. Peter's Dome, Castel San Angelo and Maximilliano!!!
We will definitely recommend Domus Carmelitana to any of our friends who visit Rome. It's only 6 blocks from the Vatican!
