"Could Have Been Worse"
The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are clean, but the hotel is under renovations in the common areas. The website indicated free wifi, but beware that it is only available in public areas downstairs. Nevertheless, we had difficulty connecting anywhere but the lobby proper which had only two chairs. Our room for three was actually just a room for […] two with an extra bed/cot crammed in. There was barely room to walk. It was very crowded for three. Finally, we stayed for four nights and encountered multiple tour groups staying in the hotel. The groups can be overwhelming when loading and unloading the bus, but they don't seem to cause any inconvenience at other times. The location is close to the Metro A line at the Cornelia station. The nearby restaurants are friendly and quite reasonably priced. Along Via Cornelia, just around the corner from the hotel, several semi-permanent street vendors offer fresh fruit bowls for €3. We found this became a nightly ritual with a lovely walk back to the hotel. Overall, the hotel is beautiful and clean, but the services are slightly lacking. The neighborhood is local, not touristy and offers a more authentic visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"No room services"
This hotel is missing some pieces to fullfill regulare hotel services. If you are looking for somewhere just to sleep. This hotel might be OK.Genuine Expedia guest review
Can't find hotel because the sign in front said "Church Palace" instead of "Domus Mariae Palazzo Capegna". Restaurant is closed during our stay. I specific chose a 4-stars hotel to be able to eat at the hotel. Everyday I have to go outside for dinner and lunch and it's rain everyday. Very inconvenient for what I paid for. Internet only free in the lobby. […] My room was on the top floor, it's kind of hot in the evening. I asked if they can adjust the air conditioning. Answer" they only change the temperature in the whole building after april 30". Elevator does not go all the way up to the 4th floor. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The worst 6 nights ever"
I ordered 1 room for 2 people and paid for. When I arrived at the hotel I was told that they had me down for a single room, after argueing a while they gave me a room on the 4th floor of which the room was cut in half by the roof, without a window ( just a skylight) . After anable to sleep for several nights I went to the office and asked to be moved […] to a normal room . Hotel staff not impressed about my problems, anable to bread in a closed room without any air, and with my heart troubles ,but they moved us to a (normal) room. A week before my arrival to Rome I called the Hotel and made sure that I had a room for 2 people. I was told that I would. I been staying in this Hotel many times in the last 6 years. If nothing is done this will be my last time. Thank you for listening Bruno scandul Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would not stay again"
First, the good: Overall the staff was very pleasant to deal with, and they addressed our concerns in a timely manner. The location was across the street from a mini market and just 5-10 minutes walk from a bus stop and metro station, as well as a 'Old Bridge Gelateria' that was very good. The breakfast was decent... it was free. The internet in the […] lobby was great, and I was able to Skype with family back home with no lag time. The internet in the room was not free, nor was it nearly as good as the free internet in the lobby. From the outside, the hotel looks very nice, and the lobby and hallways leading to the rooms are very large, and layed in a nice marble. As with much of Rome, it has nice architecture and is pleasant on the eyes. Now for the bad: Certainly not as spacious as soon as you step in your room. If you read this and still stay at the hotel, just know the room is small. The view would probably be nice if our window didn't overlook an elevator shaft covered in pigeon droppings, but that's just bad luck. The phone didn't work, but they quickly replaced it as soon as we mentioned it to the desk. Beds are tiny (I am 6ft2in at 200lbs), the bathroom is small, the TV was smaller than my laptop screen, and their isn't much space to walk around. The fridge is standard sized for any hotel, as is the tiny safe. The hotel and its staff overall were great, but the rooms themselves were just tiny and that ruined it a bit for me.

"Wow.. Italian museum building"
We were surprised when pulled up to the driveway of this hotel. It's a historic building that used to be some type of official building. It looks like some type of museum or congress building. The room is clean and breakfast is nice. The restaurant in the facility exceed our expectation. Located 5 min walk from the Metro entrance. It's a great hotel […] for family or business vacation.

"old buildng the pic is deciving. cust serv sucks"
Arrived to the hotel early, had to wait several hours to get to the room. Had 3 kids w me but they did not care to let me know the room is ready. They were ckn walk ins while i sat in the lobby. The room is nice but the bath rooms need updating. The breakfast was good. Near the vatican but far away from everything else. Wouldnt stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and affordable beauty in Rome"
My daughter stayed at this hotel for her study abroad and we joined her. We were very pleased with the value and the beauty of this hotel. The rooms were comfortable and the staff very friendly. The area is not in the downtown area of Rome, which we liked, but certainly had many amenities,i.e. good restaurants and metro near-by. We also enjoyed the […] buffet breakfast which was included and delicious! There is also a beautiful park nearby and the grounds itself are beautiful! When coming to Rome , I certainly would recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We made the rounds in Italy. This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. I would definitely come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to Metro."
Parking is free. It is not easy in Rome. The space in the hotel is very big. Nice dinning room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and secure. Good for family."
Hotel is 600m away from metro station. So it is very easy to reach the city center. If you want to go by taxi, it only costs 14-20 EUR according to your destination. All of the taxi drivers know the hotel (at least the ones that we have used). Very clean and new hotel. Breakfast was very good and rich in content. We have stayed in a tower suite with […] our 4 people family and in 4 days everything was fine. Actually it is a congress hotel, but also good for a family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice from far away"
Hotel is beautiful on the outside and lobby area. Rooms are old and dirty. Beds are hard as a rock. Free WIFI only in lobby area, in the rooms you must pay for WIFI. i stayed here about 10 months ago and it has definitely gone down!Genuine Expedia guest review

"great hotel with big spaces and very comfort"
everything was excelent, the only thing is that the place where the hotel is, is not very preatty and is far away of most of the popular sites in rome, just the vatican is quite near.Genuine Expedia guest review
The front desk staff very arrogant. They did not give much information about the area or activities, unless you asked. We were made to wait 2 hours before our room was ready and then it was the wrong room and we had to move. The room was cramped, mold in the bathroom, the decoration was sparse. The location was not central and we had to take the metro […] everywhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Metro"
The hotel was overall nice. It was close to the metro which was nice and you could get where you needed. The breakfast was good. If I were to go back I would prefer to stay closer to Trevi Fountain.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
convenient ( short walk -500 meters ) to bus and Metro stops. front desk staff very helpful. larger hotel than expecting. Breakfast wonderful..... full american ..... not just coffee and danish. not fancy but clean .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rome Hotel - Decent Value and Location"
Overall we enjoyed our stay and the staff were very helpful. We found the beds to be extremely firm and the lift was often unavailable (especially in the mornings as it appeared that housekeeping uses the same elevators). The breakfast had a very nice variety; however, we found the "hot" food temperature to be warm at best. Having to go to the lobby […] for wifi was not very relaxing to say the least. We had an issue with one of our original rooms not having A/C the day we arrived and the staff did a great job in moving things around so that we at least had A/C for that first night although we were in a downgraded room.

"Rome in Domus"
We had a wonderful stay at Domus!! Few minute walk to the Metro and few stops away from It all:) We arrived at 9:30am room wasn't ready, But we knew check in time was at 2pm. After a 9hr Flight from New York.. We kinda...Wanted to freshen up? But we were able to leave our bags and started our Adventures in Rome!! Only Negative comment is.. Even though […] we were one of the first to Check in They placed us in a room with a view of the garbage dumpster. Let's just say we never looked out. Other than that.. The Hotel itself was a delight. Breakfast was pretty Yummie too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfort and Clean"
Our hotel stay was pleasent with the room being very confortable and clean. The desk staff were neutral, but the dinning room staff and bar staff were very friendly, and made you feel like they were there to not only serve you but also to make you feel welcome. They were great! The location of the hotel was not as expected, as walking to main attractions […] was not an option. Overall the hotel experience was above average and would recommend this hotel if you do not want to be in the center of the city. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A long weekend in Rome"
We where disappointed to find on arrival the hotel was having work done which meant no restaurant facility or room service yet we weren't advised prior to booking. Breakfast was good with a wide range of choices catering for the variety of nationalities. The hotel is situated out of the city centre but the metro was close by and very easy to use costing […] 1 Euro 50 each. Multiple travel tickets are also available. Metro stations are situated very close to all the major sites. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"far from attactions"
Good hotel. Clean. Staff were helpful. Far from the attractions but the metro is only a short walk away. Surrounding neighbourhood has a lot of tagging everywhere. Didn't feel too safe walking back to the hotel at night. If u have a car it is great. They offer free parking however driving in Rome is quite scary.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely family friendly hotel"
Really enjoyed our stay, felt like nothing was ever too much trouble, staff were lovely particularly with our 3 year old son, they even went so far as to dress his teddy in pj's one night. Would love to go back when renovations are done can only imagine how good it would be then!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel metro was close lots of shops too"
I just wish there where no scaffoldings and building work on site at the time we went it was ment to be special ..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel."
Hotel was said to be under renovation, so we got a discount price. This only meant however that you couldn't have dinner in the restaurant and on a buffet breakfast was served. Room was clean and lovely, staff spoke excellent English (my Italian will only get me a nice cream and a bottle of wine) and recommended some local restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was in a lovely, quiet setting. Although it is a little way from the centre, there is a metro station only a five minute walk away. The hotel was clean, the rooms were a little small but had everything you would need for a comfortable , few days. I personally don't think it deserves a four star rating, three star at best as breakfast was […] extremely basic but just enough to get you to lunch if your not too choosey. Overall a good hotel for the price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"First time in Rome"
Dissapointed just how far out of town the hotel ended up being. Clearly used to be a lovely place but now looking very tired. Not a four star but a three at best. Could have been warned about the in going referb lack of restaurant. Had to travel on metro into town to find somewhere to eat. Hotel located in a very run down part of town. However staff […] were great. Was quite quiet and very spacious. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"disappointing and bland"
Hotel and grounds looked impressive but on entering the hotel it was dull and bland. Not welcoming at all. One breakfast room, no dining room in operation no comfortable lounge area to sit in and get to know fellow travellers. plus we were not notified that renovations were taking place in the hotel. I would not go back to it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel under renovation"
Please note this hotel is under renovation which is not advertised when you book. Although it looks grand from the outside the inside is disappointing and the rooms are small. I would not recommend or go back to this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, location not great"
Good clean room, Air conditioning inadequate, nice gardens, good breakfast-good location if you like to walk. Good parking but practically close to useless having a car here as its difficult to park in the city, traffic jams everywhere and Rome driving! A bit basic for a 4 star...Genuine Expedia guest review
We were disappointed to learn on arrival at the hotel that due to renovations the hotel restaurant and bar were closed and that there was no room service. We had not been informed beforehand and would not have chosen the hotel had we known. There was tea, coffee and water available in the reception area but there was never any milk and the bottles of […] water provided were usually empty. We saw on one floor some dirty dishes that remained there for 2 days and maybe longer as we were leaving that day. (Not sure why they were there as there was no room service) ,We had to go and ask at reception for shower wash etc as this was not replenished each day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Exactly what you need when staying in Rome"

I thought this be proper hotel but it like Government type hotel, the room are very small toilet also small but only a feeling of colonial .Hope this kind of property should be a proper management.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Palatial hotel too far out of Rome."
Whist all the rooms downstairs are very impressive the bedrooms are needing some T L C The inner net curtain was torn, hadn't been repaired. The wardrobe area was very high to place your hangers on. Also only 6 hangers of poor quality for my husband and I. the shelf under the tv had not been dusted.Pieces missing from the shelf inside the wardrobe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant stay in a convenient location"
Great hotel in a fairly convenient location. Nice building and a pleasant stay overall. The only downside was that their wifi access is only free in the lobby, and is quite slow. Metro line is a few blocks away and there is a grocery store within a block of the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderfully peaceful yet not far from the sights"
OK for families, great breakfast, and lots of quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A nice hotel for a quiet relaxing stay."
A really stylish hotel just 5 minutes walk from the Metro and 15 minutes into the centre of Rome. Room was very comfortable and reception staff helpful. Breakfast was ok but don't expect the bacon and eggs to be hot! There is a bar and outside seating/eating area in the middle and some extensive gardens to stroll or sit in. It lacks a bit of atmosphere […] in the public area and I wouldn't recommend this hotel for families as there is nothing for the kids . Having said that it is a really nice hotel. If you are flying in go to the fast train terminal but book an airport shuttle direct to the hotel it is 15euros each and will take about 20 minutes and then relax!

"Great Location - in need of a refurb though!.."
Although the room was clean everything is in desperate need of a refurb there, great location being just 3/4 stops from the centre of Rome and the whole reasonably comfertable and clean. Breakfast was standard but not the best! - Rome's version of a travelodge effectively... They will sting you 6 euro a night in tax's on top of everything also.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel at a very competitive price."
This Hotel is not in the center of Rome but one stop from the End of Line A metro. It only takes about 6 min to walk from the Cornelia Metro station and is easily commuted from Termini station, where your coach terminates from the Airport. It is used for conferences as well as a Hotel. Classed as a 4 Star Hotel which my wife and I consider to be correct. […] certainly our room was clean tidy and well kept by Hotel staff. We found the beds very comfortable and the room was very Quiet even with the windows open. We only ate in the Restaurant once but what we had was very nice and not a problem for the hotel staff even at 9.30 pm. The breakfast was fabulous, with just about everything imaginable to eat. Fresh breads, cheese, ham, fruit, bacon eggs, smoked sausage, tomatoes, yogurt, jams, fresh fruit juice and Dow Egberts coffee from the machine. The service was excellent with the staff filling up empty items constantly. All in all a very pleasant stay, we would defiantly come back to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful time at the Domus Mariae and would stay again. The setting is beautiful with parks all around and a very peaceful environment. The restaurant served delicious meals although selection is limited. The only drawback was the lack of air conditioning in our room but the windows do open to alleviate the stuffiness.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Difficult to Rate, many good and not so good point"
Good location to get into rome on the metro, lovely looking building... We stayed in a Junior Suite but werent that impressed, no bath only a shower, the Air Con was a bit noisy, no balcony, beds were average comfort... Overall I would say that it is a good 3 star hotel with the benefit of an attractive building inside and out, good surroundings, easily […] accessible, fairly good value for what it is and where it is.....

"Lovely quiet hotel"
We went for honeymoon. It was a lovely hotel, very quiet and pleasing to the eye. Breakfast buffet was very nice with lots of veriety. We went out at 3pm before and when we returned the housekeppers had still done our room which we were impressed with. Only criticism was there wasnt much to do in the hotel if you wanted a quiet day in, maybe some evening […] enterrainment needed. Also was hoping for a few more benefits of being on honeymoon as we were told we would get bathrobes and flowers. Although we did get 20% off the resturant and a welcome drink, unsure of whether this was a honeymoon treat, but thankyou for it! Would definitely recommend, lovely location.

Had a lovely stay at this hotel - we were lucky and had one of the larger size twin bed rooms which was spacious, clean and had nice modern decor. (However the aircon had to be kept on full all the time as it was not very effective). The room was situated well away from the lift and stairs so we were not distubed by any noise. Fantastic choice for the […] buffet breakfast in a lovely bright, high ceilinged dining room. This historical old building is in its own lovely grounds - really nice to come back to after the hustle and bustle of the city centre. It is not in the centre of Rome however the metro station is just 5-10 minutes walk so travel is not a problem. There are a few local restaurants and shops nearby which was handy.

"A Conference Hotel but good for family"
As it was my daughter's 14th birthday, I was a little disappointed with our initial room. Being a twin room I hoped it would be larger, spoke to the Reception staff. They were extremely helpful and understood. Although overrun with a conference, they still took time to take me to another room, although unsuitable. They changed my room the following […] day. The standard rooms are not the best but they are very comfortable. They could do with supplying a top sheet as well as a duvet as so hot at night. The air conditioning worked well and the marble type floor was cooling. I feel the room was above standard. It is not a new hotel, so this needs to be taken into account when booking, as rooms are not large, but the hotel itself is very large and impressive. All staff I met, from the Terrace cafeteria, reception, and even the cleaners were all very friendly, all smiled and all spoke to me and made me feel welcome. Shame there were no tea making facilities in the room but the staff were happy to supply me with a jug of hot water so I could make my own tea. The choice for breakfast was good, catering for most tastes. Perhaps the addition of some cooked tomatoes or mushrooms would have been good. The breakfast, on some mornings, was cold as only had candles underneath to keep food warm but, on the whole, good value. I was pleased and would recommend this hotel.

Great place to stay! 2 mins from the Metro A line which takes you to all the important tourist spots! Can't fault this place,really.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, friendly and clean hotel"
This hotel is fantastic, very clean, very friendly. Just around the corner from the Metro, so easy to get to the center of Rome and all the sites (6 stops away from the Trevi Fountain, 4 from Vatican City). The food at breakfast was great with a huge selection of fresh meats, cheese, pastries, bread, cereals and more. Only thing it could do with, is […] a pool or relaxing TV area or something, they are nice sofas around the hotel were you can sit but it really felt like if you wanted to come back to the hotel to relax a little you had go to your room rather than being in a communal area of the hotel - A pool would make this hotel perfect! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was basic, but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small, but served its purpose. The staff were friendly and helpful and the communal areas were well kept. The hotel is of a good standard, however, noise does carry in the corridors and from other rooms. The restaurant food was very nice, but is aimed more towards fine dining as opposed […] to traditional italian dishes. The breakfast was of a good standard and what you would expect from a buffet. There was a wide choice of pastries, breads, cereals and condiments and a small choice of hot food. The only negative side is that the hotel is not situated in the city centre and is approximately 20 minutes on the underground system from the city centre. The station is about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. However, we booked the hotel knowing it wasn't cental to the sights and were more than satisfied with the standard of the property.

"Great value and fairly close to must-see sights"
The hotel was clean, comfortable, affordable and not too far from the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica. The hotel was very accommodating and providing us with a wheelchair for my in-laws during our stay, at no charge. They stored the wheelchair for us every evening which gave us more room in our bedrooms. The complimentary breakfast was robust, offering […] many options, and delicious treats. I would definitely consider coming back to this hotel on my next stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
