Nice clean hotel
Food good but expensive watch out for the table charge for sitting down to eat
Metro station is far away to walk esp with children at least half an hour and it the heat it is hard work
There is a bus stop outside the hotel, but no clear timetable and staff do not know when it comes so its a bit hit and miss
On the way back we stopped outside the metro for food and a taxi back to hotel reasonable
Bus back from metro station is caught further back from the station so ask reception
Nice hotel - good value for the 70€ price we paid. Hot breakfast - one of the best we encountered on a two week tour.
10€ cab ride to Collisseum, 15 minute walk to Garabella Metro, or bus stop about 5 min walk.

The Casa Domitilla Hotel offers great accommodation in Rome and is situated in one of the most ancient areas of the city …More
The Hotel need some up keeping. The staff was very accommodating. It was nice to stay in Rome with the children and have a poll to enjoy and relax. I wish that we had the opportunity to choose the location of the rooms a view to the poll would be nice.
It's was a good hotel but some staff would take ages to serve drinks we had a 20 min wait for a bus so thought to grab a drink after waiting 10-15 mins we just walked off but other then that it was good
We booked this hotel because of its proximity to the airport as we were flying out the next day.
The room was clean, quiet and comfortable and the free breakfast was varied and fresh. If we had had a bit more time we would have used their pool!
Hotel was good. Far from the city but accessible easily by bus # 160. Take a pass for the public transport, you'll need it. Breakfast was limited but sufficient. Staff was extremely friendly. Overall a good experience :)
We are a young (mid-twenties) couple who were looking for a cheap and pleasant base from which to spend our days out exploring Rome, and we were not disappointed.
A lot of the less positive reviews seem to come from a place of misplaced expectations. This is a modestly priced hotel in a busy tourist city, so for people travelling on a budget who are prepared to forego a few luxuries you couldn't do better than this hotel. Yes, the rooms are small. And yes, it is in a less glamorous part of town (there are prostitutes on the streets at night - I advise against family stays - and it is next door to a university). But the rooms are very clean and well-furnished, the staff are lovely, and it's in an extremely convenient location 10 minutes walk from a well-connected metro station (three stops to the Colosseum). Recommend the €18 three-day unlimited travel pass. Also breakfast is great, but not for the fry-up lover - good selection of breads, cereals, cold meats and cheese, and pastries. It's Europe, so when in Rome...
So, for young people or those travelling on a budget without children, who just want somewhere decent to sleep between adventures into Rome, this place is just about perfect.
A couple of miles south of the city centre, EUR takes its name from Esposizione Universale di Roma, built for an exhibition in 1942. The bombastic architecture was then intended to glorify Fascism, but now is home to shops, cinemas and clubs and exhibitions. Within the marble halls there are also three very good museums, including the fascinating Museum of Roman Civilization.
