its in a great area, the rooms are a little dated, but the great staff made up for it.

A small hotel, just off Piazza de la Repubblica; walking distance to Colosseum, Trevi fountains; just blocks away from the metro and n the middle of good shopping area. We had a four-person room; a bit tight, but overall a fantastic stay! The only suggested improvement is a bit more hot water pressure.

Can't beat the location -- right in the middle of the cty and steps away from Trevi fountain, Pantheon, etc. It was a little quirky to find the actual entrance and the front desk is not staffed at all times, so important to communicate when you will arrive. Nice, quiet room -- comfy although tiny. Wonderful, helpful staff!

The room was set up nicely with a single bed for our granddaughter. Lighting was fine and the bathroom was clean and even though it had a tub / shower, it seemed safe. Quiet at all times. A/C in the room we were in worked but we were originally scheduled for a room where the A/C had broken. They changed us before we had checked in. Breakfast was continental and very adaquet. Staff friendly and helpful when called upon. Only drawback was an elevator that did not work a couple times causing us to have to walk up or down from or to the fourth floor. Might be a problem that was not one time from the reactions of others. I would definitely go back.

Our experience at Domus Livia was mixed! The air conditioning unit for our room was broken and could not be fixed during our entire stay. Marissa and Dennis (staff) were excellent and tried their best to accommodate! My daughter and I were given an air conditioned room, but my husband and son opted to stay in the original room. The telephone in their room did not work for a couple of days and their TV had to be replaced due to not working. The elevator to the 5th floor did not work on two occasions and walking up all of the stairs was taxing at times. The central location is very good. The staff, again, was very kind and did give us a partial refund for the inconveniences!

The location was perfect for my trip. You can get everywhere from here walking, without much trouble. That is if you are in the mood for an adventurous travel experience and you can handle long walks. If you are not there is a bus stop just in front of the hotel and Termini Station is 7 minutes(or less) away. Very small, comfy hotel room. No amenities, this is the place where you stay when you want to be out all day and get there just to take a bath and sleep. Great for that!! And the breakfast is served to your room!!!! Excellent coffee by the way... Super friendly staff, excellent people!!!!

We wanted to stay away from the big hotel and the insulation they provide. Domus was exactly as promised. Perfect location. We walked to everything. Great staff!! So nice and very helpful.

It is on the fifth floor with elevator and as you enter the petite and elegant reception room, you feel like you 've enterred an earlier time. We had a room for four people and it was very spacious and decorated so nicely. The offer a daily continental breakfast and make great espressos and cappuccinos. Its' location is quite central so walking to some of the ancient site is 10 min away.

We stayed as a couple for 4 nights and had a nice time. As mentioned in many reviews the place was very clean and stuff very helpful. But the rooms are pretty small and noise proof windows are very good but without opening the window the room was pretty stuffy at night. we had a nice tine there but its more like a nice 3* hotel not a 4*

We just returned from a week long stay in Roma. Domus Livia came up as part of a package deal on this site. I had a dreadful experience one time booking this way, and ended up in a 8X8 foot room with a metal cot and a bare light bulb hanging from the ceiling, but Domus Livia turned out to be a treasure. The accomodations are basic, but certainly include everything needed. Who wants to spend their time in a hotel room when visiting Rome anyway? The set up is a bit unusual, and if I had not read the experiences of another reviewer, I might have had difficulty finding the hotel/B&B. It is located in a section of a larger building that seems to house apartments, another hotel, etc. I was a bit concerned when the shuttle dropped us off, as Via Nazionale is a busy, noisy street. The room, however, turned out to be virtually soundproof, and we couldn't hear a sound from the outside. This is not a big chain hotel. If you want an on-site restaurant, bar, porter service, exercise equipment, a virtual mini-kitchen in the room, etc., stay at one of those places. But it has some features you won't find in any of the big name places I've ever visited. The room was quiet and spotlessly clean. The antique furniture was a pleasant change from the mass produced appointments found in most hotel rooms. The location is perfect from the standpoint of getting around. Piazza Venezia, many of the ancient ruins, the Jewish ghetto, Trevi Fountain, and many other sites are only a 10-15 minute walk. Buses run right outside the hotel, and the underground is only a couple of blocks away. The staff are the real stars, however. Marisa and Susanna took a sincere interest in us, and it seemed that there was nothing they would not do to help us and make us comfortable. They even made our reservations to visit the Borghese Gallery prior to our arrival. It was like being cared for by family. Breakfast is delivered to your room, but we had to depart early on our last day before they arrived (the desk is staffed from about 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.) so Susanna appeared the night before we left with a tray containing everything we needed to put together a quck meal for ourselves before the shuttle picked us up. I threw the coins in the fountain, am ready to get back to Rome as soon as I can, and am comfortable having the issue of where I will stay already decided. P.S. Tarverna Barberini, a short walk down Quattro Fontane, the street right beside the hotel, turned out to be an excellent restaurant, along with several others nearby.

My wife and I recently stayed at Domus Livia with two other friends. We rented Room 5, which was perfect to accommodate the four of us during our three day stay in Rome. For anyone who is looking for a room to accommodate staying with their kids, or friends, I would highly recommend Domus and Room 5.

Our room was perfect. Upon our arrival we were given and reviewed a personalized map. We were able to make it to almost all of the 14 suggestions even went back to the hotel for a short siesta .... amazing great air conditioning was a bonus. I suggest to go to the Trevoli Fountains at night. It was a great location, small and cozy yet room was spacious. I would return and recommend .

Staff is very friendly to recommend us for restaurant, sightseeing, shopping and so on. Location is about 10minutes walk to Termini station, which is very convenience to access.

Location is wonderful, 15-30 minutes from Coloseum, Forum, etc. and 15 minutes from Roma Terminii train station. Was very hard to find, on 5th floor (with elevator) of building on Via Nazionale marked as a different hotel (i.e. 2 hotels or more in same building). Service was great but bed was hard.

The hotel location was perfect, close to Metro and bus services. The room was comfortable although it would have been nice to have a dresser in the room. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating.
