Excellent BargainPosted Oct 1, 2013
Really nice room and superb bathroom. Only problem is due to location on main street with lots of foot traffic, our room on ground floor afforded no privacy unless we closed curtains. Minor inconvenience. Part-time concierges VERY helpful and friendly. Great location in centro storico.

Dynamite Location for our 3-Night Intro to RomePosted Sep 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Although other raters comment re varied locations, ours (at 36 via Dei Coronari / across and down block from hotel entrance) worked out very well for us. The location is perfect - walk to the Vatican and Castel St. Angelo, 1.5 blocks from Piazza Navona, and our 2 rooms were across hall from each other in a very secure apartment building (3 locked doors from street). Rooms were clean and big; showers tight (like many) but I'd stay there again to be close to the action. Good AC - Wi-Fi was OK, too, and we enjoyed the voucher-at-bar breakfast deal - no gripes there at all. As others probably note, location, location, location!

Perfect distance from the TrevinoPosted Sep 19, 2013
After several shining reviews of this place, I decided to book this place for my grandmother and I for our stay in Rome. What they don't tell you is that the stairs are a huge burden for tired and exhausted travelers and a 72 year old elderly woman to walk up everyday. Minor setback, so I'll continue. We were "warmly" welcome by a lady at the front. My Italian is not great, but as a desk receptionist I assumed they would be accommodating for all. Moving along. Finally, we made it to our room. The room was very clean and the perfect vision of an Italian getaway. It was smaller than I'm used to, but it was no problem to us. We had a window to the street which was perfect. The guy that works during the day was very nice and offered me his converter charger for my iPhone. He was nice, helpful, and very accommodating. The other staff was the same. The major downfall was the breakfast which included a croissant/sweet roll and cappuccino and juice that I had to walk to a snack bar to obtain. The highlight, however, did trump the bad. I enjoyed the room, it was exactly what I was looking for. They kept it clean and besides the rude lady, the staff took great care of us. We were in close proximity to the Trevi Fountain and Pantheon and there was a nice plaza around the corner that had gelato, tourist attractions, and restaurants for days!! I would recommend this place for several reasons: it's a great location to the city, nice authentic Italian rooms, and the perfect view at night.

Great Location and ComfortablePosted Sep 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
Residenza Domizia is housed in three seperate buildings. We stayed in the one near the river Tiber. Location was great, room was claen and the breakfast served by the Cafe was adequate to begin our day. The only draw back for us was that the front desk was sparcely manned. I tried to call the reception for instructions but the line did not work. Had to leave the keys in the room when leaving. The main reception is in a building about 1/2 a mile away. The rating above is for our building. It has only five units. The steel frame beds squeeked upon movement, but they were comfortable.

enjoyable stay but mis-advertisedPosted Aug 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
I have mixed feelings about this guest house. I enjoyed my time there and it is well situated. It was easy to find and the late-entry process worked well. I was put into a small, dark room the first night but managed to get moved to a good, light, large room for the rest of my stay. But they incorrectly advertise. They say: “The private bathroom has a bathtub with a handheld showerhead, as well as bathrobes and slippers. Air conditioning, a ceiling fan, and a safe are among the conveniences offered.” In fact, some rooms have tubs and some have showers. There were no bathrobes and slippers, and I saw no fans. The safe is at the desk and thus unusable as the desk is not always open. They say: “Free breakfast is brought to your room each morning.” In fact, you are given tickets and have a choice of three different local cafes. This suited me well as I got a chance to sample different cafes - even though what was included in the ticket price was limited to a croissant, juice and coffee or tea. I don’t expect, or want, bathrobes and slippers or breakfast in my room – so why mis-advertise?

good accommodationPosted Aug 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Location is great for seeing major attraction...or easy bus ride away. Room we had was prob a bit too small for 3 nights - not that you should be in your room while in Rome anyway! Breakfast was a voucher at a cafe which wasnt open early enough for us but would be fine if not early risers! Would stay here again but would pay more for larger room. Oh no elevator so one flight of stairs...no a big problem.

Good value and good locationPosted Jul 29, 2013
I was looking for a hotel near Piazza Navona without spending too much. Overall, this hotel was exactly what you would expect for what you pay. It's in a good area, but the street is more like an alley way and can be hard to find when returning home late at night. The receptionists are friendly and helpful. The room was clean, but the bathroom was small and the walls were very thin and our neighbors could hear us. I would recommend this place to someone looking for a clean and moderately priced hotel in a great area of Rome.

Great hotel. Poor wifiPosted Jul 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
The only thing about this hotel is the lack of wifi in the room I was staying I think it was called palazzo spanolo or something similar but the rest of the hotel seem to get great wifi. And besides that the rooms are probably the cleanest and better taken care of that I've found in my travels through Italy

No frills, right next to Piazza NavonaPosted Jul 5, 2013
Pros: Its proximity to Piazza Navona and its relative affordability.
Cons: The room did not have enough lighting -- there was an overhead light and two desk lamps, but you could hardly see, which made reading difficult.
The room was simple, but the bed was comfortable enough, the desk and wardrobe more than adequate, and the bathroom much better than a lot of places in Italy (i.e., it had a real stand-up shower with a door). There was no view out the windows, but the location is only a couple of blocks from the Piazza Navona, which made it incredibly useful for me, as I had a conference at a nearby university.
