A nice location is a half of any hotel, as many say. The venue is close to the University La Sapienza and some other attractions of the eternal city.

The Domus Castrense hotel offers tastefully furnished rooms that can be singles, doubles and triples and contain many if not all modern conveniences.

Discover the pleasures of genuine, good food and a relaxing atmosphere in the memorable place of the Domus Castrense hotel.

    Its location, close to Termini and the metro, very clean, breakfast in your room, good value for money

    Very very noisy, you can hear anything the other guests are doing or discussing at night and in the morning as well as the sounds of the staff from 7 o'clock on.

    Location, friendly staff

    Breakfast in the room - sounds great, but usually I do not like to decide in advance what time I would like to get up.

    This was a fantastic find... Very clean, comfortable, quiet and great location. Also the Internet in our room was very fast with a strong signal. Less than 10 min walk to termini and the cafe at the end of the street is really good. I highly recommend it!

    Good location at a good price. 5-10 minute walk to the main Termini station. Then anywhere you want to go in Rome. Host was awesome and knowledgeable. Breakfast was breads coffee yogart and juice. Plenty to get you going. Room was spotless. Would return and recommend

    Take your cell phone and the contact number for the hotel as the access to the hotel is secure and we could not figure out which button to push to gain entry. Fortunately our cab driver was friendly and called for us and we were buzzed right in.

    We are more than satisfied with this cozy and charming accomodation. It is in fine area 7 min walking distance from Termini station. Main impression was that everything is possible and can be agreed with the owner of the hotel. Such friendly, approachable and helpful person is very rare to see. Rooms on fifth floor are highly recomendable. Excellent value for money.

    The location is fine (5m walk from Termini) and the rooms are great (lcd tv, free wireless, very clean toilette). Would book again next time!

    The hotel is great, small but quite comfortable. The manager, Alfredo, is great, attentive and helpful. The breakfast in the room is a nice touch. Would definitely stay again. I liked everything about my stay. Quite close to the Termini station.

    very good location and warm reception

  • Older travelers

    The owner/receptionist was very friendly, honest, and always available. The area is quite isolated from the busy city area, but is very safe to walk at night and park a car on the street. As other reviews, breakfast in the room was very nice. New, clean, and modern rooms. It is as they state it "guest house" not hotel, so it is good for experienced travelers, not needing the services of hotels.

    Since it is still new, our room was not cabled yet for Sky, not able to watch an Italian football match.

    The hotel is comfortable, the room is spacious and the decoration is good.

    For those who are carrying bags, it can be uncomfortable to walk from Termini to the hotel. The reception is on the second floor, while some rooms are on the 5th. The breakfest is served kind of late and in the bedroom, which can be inconvenient and limited. The walls are very think and there is no recommendation for guests not to make too much noise! It could be cheaper, btw.

    Very good service. Pretty good location. very nice and extremely clean rooms. I dont think you can get a better deal in Rome. will I go back to Rome I will definitely stay here again, No question about it!

    Even if it was a nice touch to get breakfast served in the room the breakfast was quite basic. Really good caffe though!

    Alfredo was extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was simple but adequate, and delivered promptly to the room each morning. Close to train station. Room was quiet, clean and recently decorated.

    Wi-fi not working. TV working intermittently.

    The location is great! from Ciampino Airport transfer bus leave us next to Termini Station. From there, is like 5 minutes walk to Domus Castrense so you don't have to change another local trasport or taxi to reach the Hotel. They have a new wing at 5-th floor witch is new, so the room was great. We didn't hear the noise from outside, so that was great too..

    you don't have receptionist during the night, so if you want something extra you should ask in the daytime.
