The only inconvenience of Domus Pacis is that the hotel is bit far away from city historical center. Walking to nearest Cornelia Metro station takes about 15 min, bus stop where bus goes to the Vatican area is closer though. Rooms are rather small, but ok for single traveller or two. Hotel located in quiet park, which is nice, I didn't feel confined in the building, there is a lounging area outside of the hotel bar.
This hotel was a big disappointment. It had the feel of a convention center in the midwest, no charm at all. The location was terrible and very inconvenient. Be prepared to take a cab to and from the hotel to get anywhere, unless you want to walk a long way on very narrow sidewalks. The room was small and furnished like a dorm room, and the bed was soft and weird like a waterbed. The room was clean enough, but the halls were disgusting and dirty. Beware... if you are at all overweight, you might not fit in the shower. The staff was friendly and helpful though. They managed to accommodate us even though they had no record of our reservation (make sure to bring your confirmation information) and they took the time to help us try to figure out how to get around.
Hotel rooms are in a several separate buildings, not in the same building featured. However, this is not something to complain for me. The room was OK in size and amenities, except the tiny shower room - not even a place to put a shampoo bottle. But you can enjoy nice breakfasts. Riding to the Vatican and the top 5 sightseeing places is easy and the bus stop is only a few minutes away. Study bus lines like 98, 881, 64, and 571 before coming to the hotel. #64 runs from the Stazione Termini (the arrival station from Fiumicino airport) to the Paola Sq which is the bus terminal of 98 and 881. If you have enough money, why bother to stay this far?
Excellent value for the price with nice breakfast buffet
While the hotel is a little bit off the beaten track it is very close to a bus stop which will connect you with the underground to get to all the interesting sites. The atmosphere in this hotel was very relaxing. The rooms could be bigger and maybe a little more soundproofed but on the whole were very comfortable and clean.I will definitely stay here again!
Too far from train and airport. Cost 50.00 euro each way by taxi. That's $75.00 American each way!! Much too far to go by subway and bus with luggage. Even bus to Vatican was stressful and confusing on where to get off. Although the grounds are quiet, the street crossing in front of the hotel gate to walk to the bus stop is quite dangerous. Room was so small, no place to put even one suitcase. Next day we mentioned it at desk and they moved us to a nicer room on a third floor with no elevator. Better room, though. BTW the outdoor restaurant maître d' was condescending. Hotel desk clerks were helpful.
the hotel isn't that close to the city. You have to take one of two buses to get to Vatican city, which is somewhat far from the main attractions. I had spent 6 wells studying abroad in Rome so I knew my way around the city and this hotel was just not convienent for sight seeing and such. The staff wasn't very helpful when we asked about the bus system. If you're there for fun try a different hotel closer to the pantheon because that is more center of all the sights in Rome. The lobby of the hotel is nice though and I could invision confrences being held there. If groups are stating there it would be best to have a group bus to take you around. Breakfast there is not included it cost ?10. The room was small but maintained nicely. I felt comfortable and safe. But once again, its hard to experience the city, the piazzas, museums, and sights. Because it is far a way.
I was sick (colds). I needed heating in the room. I was told there was no heating. I asked for a portable heater. One was provided to my room. If there are 50 guests who need heating. Would the hotel have 50 portable heaters to provide the guests? Overall, I am not satisfied with the hotel. Sorry!
