I had a good stay in Domus Romana, the manager Mr Valerio was very nice and kind, a tipical young Roman guy. The room was comfortable and for 2 night stay was the best choise to have a good and clean room at a resonable price.
The pros. for this place is its location.It is just between the Manzoni and San Laterano metro stations, and there are also trams passing near by. For those who choose to walk, the Colloseum is about 20 minutes away.
The place it self is an appartment on the basement floor consisting of 3 rooms, each with it wc and shower. and a shared kitchen. The rooms are small with small windows. The one we stayed in did not have an a.c unit, which would be a problem in the summer.The room wasn't cleaned properly and had some drianage problems. The breakfast offered is a coffee machine and some supermarket cakes, both didn't look good.
This place is suitable only for budget travelers since it is just like a private room in a hostel.
We chose this B&B for its price and its location. The B&B is off the main street about a block and a half from a metro station two stops from the Termini. The staff are very nice and helpful. The room is small but how much time do you spend in your room. If you are traveling on a budget this is a place I would consider.
How can they say that the breakfast is included in the price? We spent two nights in Domus Romana. The first evening, we had two small cakes in a polythene bags for the breakfast, the second evening, there was nothing. You have to share the kitchen with two other bedrooms.
The room is in the basement. A small window is available but there isn't any sunlight in the room and you always have to turn on the switch light. We didn't find the way to close the small window, and we heard outside noises from the street during all the night.
We didn't find the way to switch on the heater.
The towels were not changed the second evening. We had to dry ourselves with wet towels.
Don't manage to use the hair dryer, it is completely broken, sparks and burned smells come out of it when you plug it on.
The positive point is that you are in the city center.
It is cheap but does not worth 68 euros a night (for 2).
You can't pay by credit card.
First of all, we had a very nice stay at Domus Romana B&B, and I would definitly recommend it to other.
But there is a few things I would like to have known prior to my arrival ;o)
- There is no sign on the building with the name Domus Romana, it looks like a normal appartment building, but we couldn't enter the building without a key, and didn't know which floot the B&B was on.
- You have to call Mauro, whose number you will receive with you booking, and who speaks perfectly good english, and he will come within 5 min to let you in. Tip: Call him a little before arrival ;o)
- The B&B is in the basement, which I didn't know, and was a little nervous about, because i instantly thought of a cold og moist room. This could not be farther from he truth, the rooms are light and very cosy.
Because we didn't know these things, our start was quite bumpy, but had I know this prior to my arrival, I would not have one negative thing to say about Domus Romana. Mauro was extremely helpfull, and even dropped us of at a fantastisk restaurant near by, so we could get something to eat.
I will definitly stay there next time we come to Rome :oD
