Fantastic location

Posted May 13, 2014
Pros: location location location
Cons: update the WI FI system
What a fantastic location for our first week in Rome...... located on one of the seven hills of Rome, Avantina....right in the middle of a elegant residential area. 400 year old church right next door, out our window..... across the courtyard....6 great restaurants a 10 minute walk down the hill. The Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill all within walking distance. The Metro, subway system a five block walk away. The perfect place to return to after a full day in Rome.

Excellent hotel in a quiet but convenient location

Posted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: Quiet, well run and helpful.
Cons: Very little.
Location: Close to Palatine and Colesium and Pyramid and Keats/Shelley graves. Short walk up the hill to Santa Sabina and the Knights of Malta keyhole.
Hotel was a real gem in the quiet location in the Aventine. Staff were unfailingly helpful and the room was comfortable and clean. Balcony overlooking the church garden next door was a real bonus for the evening. If in Rome also check out the delightful little family run restaurant on the Via Garibaldi, No 6, where the food is delicious and the price so reasonable. It deserves a fine recommendation and is well worth seeking out.

Great price...OK area.

This was a very reasonably priced hotel that was near enough to both the Circo Massimo and Pyramide Metro stops. It was also VERY near one of the coolest lesser known places to visit in Rome - the keyhole.

Good location to visit Colosseum and Roman Forum

Posted Dec 28, 2013
Pros: Near location to Colosseum and Roman Forum
Cons: Provide quality beds
Location: Walk to Colosseum and Roman Forum with 10min.
The location of the hotel is within walking distance to the Colosseum and Roman Forum. We walked there in the evening to take night photos. The staff is friendly and surrounding is quite. The breakfast is a bit disappointing as the selection is limited. Only warm stuff is the hard boil egg. The beds are too hard. Especially the pull out bed. Shower cell is very small.

Highly recommended

If you do not mind a little walking, this is a great hotel! The nearest Metro stop is about an 8 minute walk, the Roman Forum and Colluseum are about a 15 minute walk. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, the rooms are spacious and confortable and the staff very helpful. There are a few good restaurants in the area but the evenings are pretty quiet in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.

Nice hotel with good staff

Posted Nov 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Domus Aventina is a little out of the way, but within walking distance to the Circo Massimo, Roman Forum, and Colisseum. The staff was really nice and helpful. The area of town is quiet and within easy walking distance of several restaurants, a bakery, a gelateria, a small grocery store, and a housewares store. The nearest metro stop is Circo Massimo, which is about a 10-minute walk away. The breakfast is modest, but good. Coffee was fantastic. Overall, the hotel is a very good value!

Nice little hotel

Posted Oct 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Good location. My room has a small balcony where two people can sit outside and enjoy the garden below. The room is also rather big as European hotels go. Hotel staff is polite and very pleasant. Overall a nice place and no nonsense hotel, especially for a quick short business stay.

Quiet room in handy location

Posted 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.

No frills, quiet

Posted Oct 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It was clean and the service was friendly. The neighbourhood is very nice and within walking distance to the Colluseum and other attractions. The rooms were clean but perhaps a little dated. The breakfast was mostly contnental. The wifi worked well in all areas. The only cons was that their is no elevator which is a hassle when lugging large suitcases. The showers would be small if you are a larger person.

A very comfortable hotel in a quiet part of Rome

Posted 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.
