We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - particularly our time on the terraces. The location was great (near famous sites, restaurants, gelato places).
We had the great pleasure of Renting Domitilla early September 2016. It was my Sisters
Birthday & we wanted to find something very special in Rome. While checking the internet
I came across an Apartment called Domitilla, which immediately caught my Eye.
The apartment was designed in the 60’s and is of its time, beautiful layout / incredibly spacious with 3 terraces & views which I think would be hard to match in Rome.
Spent afternoons being very lazy in the sitting room taking advantage of the Eames Chair
And Ottoman (exceptionally comfortable) & mornings on the Large top terrace enjoying the Sunshine & great views ……….
Location of apartment is brilliant; 10 min walk to the Trevi’s Fountain / 15 min the the Forum & about 20 mins to the Cool shops by the Spanish steps.
Adriana (Our Greeter) could not have been more helpful, did some shopping for us prior to our arrival, Organised Taxi’s from/to the Airport / recommended Restaurants – which we enjoyed very much (All very local – particularly the restaurant behind the apartment, a
Family run place – food was fantastic – recommend the Pasta Carbonara)
Over all, I can highly recommend both Domitilla & Commendable Rentals (looking forward to using the apartment again in 2017)

I traveled with my husband and two teenagers. This apartment had more than enough space for our size party. The THREE terraces were the best part of the experience staying in this apartment. Fabulous views!!! There was AC but ONLY in the three bedrooms so wimpy Americans BEWARE! It is not enough to cool down the entire apartment. The Kitchen especially was HOT. The management was excellent in accommodating our requests. Ex: we couldn't figure out how to open the washing machine so the property caretaker went there to open it and even hung our clothes to dry for us while we were out touring. Note: there is no clothes dryer but typical in Italy. Restaurant recommendations were spot on. The second bathroom on the second level was not conducive to taking a shower (it has a combined shower/tub) but there was a standing shower in the main floor bathroom so that worked out fine, Despite the lack of consistent AC (or just avoid Italy in July and early August!), I would definitely recommend this apartment. It was great!

Our stay at the domatilla was wonderful. Having such a beautiful place to come home to and helped make our trip wonderful. Our party included myself and my husband, his parents and our 6 month old son. Since having a child, it is much more difficult to go out and experience the nightlife while traveling, so it is important for us to stay in an apartment or hotel where you feel like you are in a different city and not say in the middle of New Jersey. This apartment delivers. From the moment your eyes open in the morning you see some amazing monument or architectural wonder and the entire city skyline spanning centuries is laid out in front of you.
I cannot stress how perfect the location is. It is within walking distance to almost all major attractions in the city. We signed up for two tours and both times our guides just met us at the front door since it was so close to where we were going. This was essential for traveling with a small child.
The apartment is so spacious and allowed us to spread out and have our own space throughout the week. The large dining table was perfect and allowed us to all have dinner together.The beautiful terraces (there are three) were the perfect place to relax after a day of touring and we could watch the amazing sunset with a nice glass of wine.
One of the greatest parts of our trip was Mr. Soni. He is a master in the kitchen and prepared such delicious meals for us. It was such a wonderful feature to be able to come back from a long day and have someone prepare a wonderful (and authentic) Italian meal in the comfort of our apartment. If I could have taken Mr. Soni home with us, I would have.
Commendable Rentals were absolute pros and helped stock the kitchen for us upon arrival and coordinate with Mr. Soni and even found our baby monitor that we accidentally left. They absolutely go the extra mile to make your experience great.
I would recommend this apartment in a heartbeat and my only criticism would be the upstairs bathroom is in need of some updating and tlc - but we used it for a week with no problem. Also I would note that we had a young child (not walking yet) and it was great - if we had toddlers or more mobile children, I would have kept a closer eye on upper terrace door to make sure they could not go out there. It has a lock and safeguards of course, but you would need to be diligent if you had toddling small children.
