This was the perfect place to stay for our first trip to Rome. Our room was big enough for 2 persons. It was clean and very quiet. They cleaned our room everyday; they may change towels when asked. Windows may be open. At night, we did not need any eye mask to sleep; the room was dark. The AC kept as very comfortable. Our room had small refrigerator with snacks, soda, and water. Croissant, breads, orange juice, and outstanding capuccino were served every morning into our room. Susana, Marisa, and Dennis were very helpful. They all speak English. They made reservation for our Borghese Gallery visit. They confirmed our bus shuttle pickup to the airport. The hotel itself is a walking distance to many restaurants, shopping stores, pharmacy, grocery store, and of course Roma Termini (hub for trains, metro, and buses). No negative feedback to say. We would stay here again when we come back! Thanks to its wonderful staff.

Room Tip: Our room was #6, not on the side of the busy street Via Nazionale.

Was a bit dubious about booking as sites don't seem to know how to describe this place. Some call it a hotel some a B&B. Now I've been there I can understand why. There are about 6 private rooms in an large old charming apartment block all leading off a secure corridor that houses a reception area. It's like a normal hotel that is split between different owners and they each run their own corridor. It turned out to be the best of both. Essentially a hotel with a very personal service. Little touches like being offered an umbrella on a rainy day were very much appreciated

My wife and I had booked a 7 night stay just to see the City. A week before we were due to arrive, our daughter decided she wanted to come too. I emailed the hotel, more out of hope than expectancy that they could accommodate an extra person at such late notice. Was pleasantly surprised, when they said they would switch us to bigger room that could house another bed (for a reasonable fee)

The Hotel is very clean and rooms were spacious and had maid service daily. Air con was powerful and free, as was wifi. The receptionist was extremely helpful, spoke perfect English, was happy to give advice on the area and how best to book the attractions etc. Only thing I would suggest is that they put a safe in the room. Receptionist said they didn't need to as the rooms were perfectly secure and reception was literally just down the corridor, which was true and we had no problems, but having been robbed in Italy before, I would have felt better for having one

Location was 10 mins walk from the main bus station (Termini) sited on a busy commercial street with loads of shops, restaurants and convenience stores. Very central to a lot of the sites, short walk to Spanish steps, Trevi fountain etc. As the hotel is sited on the 5th floor, there is no sound from the street when you are in the room, so no need to worry about noise

I very much doubt, that for the money they charge, you would find better.

If you get bored of pasta and pizza, there is fantastic Chinese restaurant just across the road. It is simply called "Chinese restaurant" and is tucked away down an alley behind a newspaper stand. Doesn't look much from outside, but the food was excellent.

The rooms are very clean and large. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and speak English very well. The breakfast (Italian) is delivered to your room.
Central location in a town house on the 5th Floor. Most attractions are within walking distance.

Room Tip: Room 2 and 3 may be connected by a door as required.

A very nice little hotel/ bnb in Rome,close to Termini station, yet quiet during the night. We especially enjoyed that the breakfast was served in the room each morning after your choice. Nice helpful staff.

The concept of the Domus Livia "Suites" is more "private apartment" than "hotel". For us, this worked out very well and we favored it. Our family of four (2 adults, 2 children) stayed at the Domus Livia for three nights in June 2013. We were very pleased with the space. We had a room with the normal "double" bed (two twins pushed together), plus two twin beds that had been rolled in.

Our room was spacious (certainly by European standards), perfectly clean, comfortable and completely sufficient. To me, the inherent European character made it charming. We were thrilled that the A/C was working steadily! (I had read reviews of other hotels in town where A/C is not always available or working.) Our only frustration was weak WiFi in the room. This was remedied by opening the door to the room and/or stepping out into the lobby.

The location within the city was very convenient. The neighborhood was busy without being loud or distracting. There was a metro stop (Repubblica) just a couple of blocks up the street. There were plenty of restaurant choices within walking distance. We were able to walk over to Trevi Fountain within about 10-15 minutes.

My thanks to the super-friendly staff, especially Susanna! We received timely and friendly responses (in excellent English!) when we wrote to confirm our reservation. Upon arrival, Susanna assisted me with a tour reservation at the Colosseum. Before departure, Susanna helped me decide on my outing for our last day in Rome - there were too many options to cover everything!

I would highly recommend the Domus Livia for travelers with similar desires. I would definitely stay here again on a future trip. And again, thanks to Susanna for her friendly assistance! Ciao!
