“Freak!”
Reviewed May 28, 2007

We decided to book a last minute short break to Rome, once the flights were done we turned our attention to a place to stay, we initially need two double rooms at the same hotel and suffice to say at short notice this was easier said then done!

The Lonely Plant Rome Guide pointed us in the direction of this hotel; the original booking was made via the telephone with a really helpful young lady, who was very patient with me as I don't speak any Italian at all.

Just seven days prior to our stay we had to cancel one of the rooms and this was done with complete ease.

Prior to arriving we had checked out the previous reviews that trip advisor has for this hotel and had we not been a little desperate I am sure that they would have completely put us off and we would have booked elsewhere.

We arrived at the hotel to be met by a charming and very helpful receptionist, as we had arrived quite early in the day our room wasn't quite ready, so after getting a quick but really helpful overview of the area we left our bags and headed out into the eternal city.

On arriving back at the hotel we were given Room 23, we were both pleasantly surprised and somewhat relieved with what we found.

Our bathroom had a really big and very powerful shower, with constant hot water. The room was a little small with twin beds that were made up as a double, so the actual sleeping area was larger than a normal size double. The room was very clean and tidy, simply furnished but it had everything that we needed!

One morning we did try the television, we were not at all disappointed by the lack of English speaking channels as the city (and my company) were so fantastic that we never turned it on again!

The air con worked perfectly, and kept the room nicely chilled. The blackout shutters and double glazing made for a perfect night's sleep also.

The reception area was staffed around the clock and we found all the staff members to be perfectly helpful and approachable.

Breakfast was simple but ample and afforded us a quick getaway each morning to see more of the city.

All in all the hotel was perfect for our requirements, it is a quiet quarter of Trastevere. There are a few restaurants in the Square to the side of the hotel and once you have spent your whole day sightseeing and having a perfect time, eating somewhere relaxed, affordable with excellent food a stone's throw away is a splendid way to end your day. On saying all of that the hotel is just a short walk from the main Trastevere drag, and everything that the area has to offer.

Only having got back today, I might still be feeling fairly wonderful as my whole weekend was perfect.

Rome is just amazing and absolutely the best short break I have ever had in Europe, the hotel was in a excellent location and was everything we needed at a really reasonable price for a city like Rome and lastly my partner in crime (PIC) was completely splendid (you know who you are)!

Can't promise that my PIC will be available for your trip, but if you choose Rome and this hotel and you only have half the fun I had, and only get half the amount of wonderful memories you will still have had a fabulous time!

You might as well spend a little more money and stay in a decent place. The staff here is awful, confrontational and unhelpful. The rooms are basically like a youth hostel, the bathrooms smell, and the management doesn't care. Admittedly, the location is good, but it's not worth it. Same owners as Hotel Trastevere House, so don't be fooled. It's no better.

We have visited Rome five times in the past 7 years so have some feel for mid-range hotels in that city. In our opinion, a stay in Trastevere while in Rome is the one area of the city giving the tourist a taste of "old Rome" with streets of character, tons of excellent restaurants, lack of the maddening traffic and a sense of not being in huge metropolitan city. We just returned from a 5 night stay in Rome ( May 3-May 8) and stayed at the Domus Tiberna Hotel. We have some mixed feelings about the stay, but would consider staying there again. On the plus side: location. Just a five minute walk from the Tiber Island and the river. On the other side of the river is Bus 23 which will take you close to St. Peter's Basilica (stop on Via Conciliazone (sic), and also a later stop on the bus close to the Vatican Museums (Piazza Risorgiamento)--this is important to many tourists and keeps you away from the packed bus 64 with its pickpockets. If you need to visit the area around the Pantheon then take Tram 8 near the hotel. Now the hotel staff was quite friendly and spoke English. Everyone tried to assist with answers to our questions. Now to the other side of the coin: the rooms are so tiny and very hard to move around in. If you travel with a lot of luggage you will have problems reaching your bed; the bed linen is not changed on a daily basis so we had the same sheets for our entire stay; the breakfast is a bit ordinary: one cup of coffee to your order,a small plastic glass of juice, two rolls per person, a container of yogurt, little container of cheese spread. On our travel home date, the lady who presents the breakfast came in late to work so the front desk person had to make some quick coffee and give us our rolls (he was quite pleasant about it). Do not expecgt breakfast before 8:00 The showers are tiny,be careful if overweight as you may get stuck and need assistance. No english speaking channels on the TV, although this was only a concern late at night after returning from sightseeing. Now the cost was 140 euros per night for a double room. All in all,it was o.k.and a possibility for the future, but not something I would go out of my way to return to in the future. However if you desire to stay in Trastevere you may want to consider this place if this is your budget.
