“Simply.... The Best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2011

The Hotel Domus Praetoria is extremly clean and the rooms are very large & comfortable with free wi-fi & breakfast as well. The hotel in a great location, very close to the Termini and the three brothers (owners), Massimo, Antonio and Fabio speak english very well.

We are so happy we found this gem! No need to look further...
Enjoy Rome!

When my friend and I checked in at the hotel, Massimo mentioned that the room had one large bed but that if we preferred to have the bed split, they would do it for us. It was a thoughtful gesture, so we accepted. The next day, he apologized stating that they actually can't split the bed in our room, so instead, he would give us an extra room free of charge! They went beyond what I expected to make our stay comfortable. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast that was included was nice. The only thing for me was that the location was a bit far from some of that areas we wanted to stay out late in, so getting back was not as convenient. It's very close to the Metro, but the Metro stops at midnight-1AM. But we figured out the bus schedule and it wasn't too bad... If you don't plan to stay out late, the Metro is very convenient. I would stay here again the next time I'm in Rome.

The Rooms at this place was like staying in an apartment, very large. Really large bathroom. Very clean. Good walking location to lots of attractions. Only problem we had is that I use a wheelchair and they didn't mention the 3 steps you need to climb to get to the elevator which is tiny. But we made it work and for most travels a great place to stay that is very affordable.

This small, budget hotel is family-run, and the service is absolutely excellent for anything in this category. I was also quite surprised at the quality of the rooms (large bathrooms, newly remodeled floors and cabinets). The neighborhood isn't exciting, and I wouldn't stay here for any long time. But it's near the train station, which is very convenient if you're transiting (we had an early morning flight, so spent the previous night here, after taking the train to Rome).

All in all, considering the overall costs of Rome, it was a good value. The service was the stand-out, though.

Excellent staff - very friendly, because the hotel is family-owned. Good location, near to the main train station, supermarkets and bistros in a 5 minute radius. Very clean, decent breakfast, free WLAN in the rooms. Within 2 metro station away from the most atractions (Colosseum, Spagna, Trevi Fountain) or 20-25 minutes walking distance. Very good price-value ratio! Great choice for a medium budget stay.

You can't complain about the service here, but the street market outside our window was a real bummer. Very loud in the morning. The room was nice, but small. Rome is just expensive, period. Of all our hotels in Italy, this was the smallest room in the worst area for the most money. It's not far from the train station which is nice, but the walk there is kind of dirty. For Rome the price was ok, but next time we'll be looking for another neighborhood that is a bit nicer.
