Quiet room in handy locationPosted Oct 9, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at the Domus Aventina. We had a third floor room which allowed us to open the windows and enjoy the church garden below us. Particularly pleasing on an evening with a light rain fall. The hotel is only a few blocks from the Circo Massimo Metro stop. It is also served by buses only a block away and the #3 Tram runs up and down Via Aventina at the bottom of the hill. Along the Via Aventina are restaurants, a small grocery and any other necessary service. In short, the hotel is quiet and convenient. We also found the staff (concierges, maids and the breakfast guy) to be helpful and friendly. One of our other hotels required a direct contact and a concierge at the Domus handled the call for us. Especially helpful since I do not speak Italian. The breakfast is basic; pastries, cereals and fruit. The only protein are the hard boiled eggs. Any shortfall was trumped (in our eyes) by the room attendant, who made coffee drinks to order.

A very comfortable hotel in a quiet part of RomePosted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: The quiet area but closeness to the main parts of Rome; the helpful, polite staff; the comfortable, spacious room and excellent air-conditioning.
Cons: Perhaps a bit of fruit available at breakfast would be nice, but I'm not complaining about the selection available.
Location: Within easy walking distance of a number of attractions but good transport links to help you get anywhere if you didn't want to walk.
This hotel was ideal - quite close to a lot of the main features of Rome but tucked away in a very pleasant and quiet part. The hotel staff were all very polite and spoke good English. Our room was very large, really comfortable with an excellent en-suite bathroom. And the air conditioning was one of the most efficient I have come across - very necessary in the hot temperatures at the time of our holiday. Not far from the hotel was the river and over the other side in the Trastevere region was a wonderful selection of reasonably-priced restaurants. In fact the whole area comes alive at night. But the centre of Rome and all the key attractions were also very accessible, either by walking or on the excellent 175 bus which stops less than 100 yards from the hotel. For us this was the perfect location - away from the rush and bustle (and the less desirable parts that are supposed to be more subject to pick-pocketing) but sufficiently close to everything that mattered.

Small but very nice hotelPosted Aug 9, 2013
This was a small but very nice hotel. Rooms were very comfortable and staff very friendly. The hotel is not in the centre of Rome but is a 5 minute walk away from the Ciro Massimo subway which can take you wherever you want to go. The Paletine, Colosseum, the Forum are a 10-15 minute walk away (20 if you have kids in tow). We had a very happy stay and feel it was good value for money considering we visited Rome in the height of season. We liked it much better than the idea of being in a converted appartment block in the city. Breakfast is very basic but not much differnt to any Italian Hotel.

High standard, straight forward hotel. Great placePosted Jul 7, 2013
This is quite a straight forward, simple hotel, not high on luxury but a very good standard. We had a great stay. It was everything we wanted especially for the price. The room was big, the bed was pretty big, the bathroom was a good size and everything was clean. We had a private terrace with chairs too which was lovely. Great to have air conditioning when it was 34 degrees outside and shutters on the windows which kept the room nice and dark when we slept. The staff were v friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.

Perfect it was right next to my daughters college. Within walking distance of all the sights.

Unpretentious, pleasant and peaceful.Posted Apr 20, 2013
Quiet, friendly English-speaking staff. Very convenient if you are visiting the Aventine area. Free WiFi is rather slow and not secure. Simple self service cold breakfast bar.

Clean, quiet, convenientPosted Mar 18, 2013
The Domus Aventina is in a quiet neighborhood with nearby shops and easy access to convenient bus and metro stops. It is not luxurious, but is well tended and comfortable, and it will be most appreciated by those who have some experience of European travel. I have stayed there several times over several years and look forward to returning.

Reasonably priced hotel in a good areaPosted Jan 23, 2013
Extremely reasonably priced hotel in a lovely quiet suburb of Rome, close to the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant at all times. 5 minutes walk from a number of good eateries- would definitely stay here again.

Domus Aventino RomePosted Dec 16, 2012
Hotel isn't that close to bars and cafes and has no facilities for making tea/ coffee. Breakfast is the only opportunity to get a hot drink. Breakfast was good with fresh fruit and great coffee. Rooms were dark but spacious. Bed comfy but hard and blankets needed replacing. The shower was minuscule with barely enough room to turn around and the doors were very difficult to close. However the location was very pleasant as long as you don't want to be in the thick of it all. Bus and tram services are good and staff very helpful. We got plenty of opportunity to walk everywhere and got a good feel for Rome after 5 days exploring.

Decent - as expected...Posted Nov 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
As, expected hotel was fine and the reviews I read were accurate. I chose this mainly for it's convenient location--within walking distance of Circus Maximus metro stop. Breakfast was ok. Room was clean (a little mold in the shower.) Front desk staff was very helpful with directions, reserving airport transportation, etc. (although I speak Italian so I can't rate their English.) Overall, decent hotel and value.
