This historic 17th-century Rome building is set on Aventino hill, has a pretty courtyard, and is located 100 metres from the Rose Gardens and 200 metres from Villa Celimontana park.
Pros: The location.
Very quiet residential neighborhood.
A/C worked great.
Included Continental Breakfast and a very good coffee.
Excellent front desk staff.
Walking distance to many tourist sights (we walked to the Spanish Steps from the hotel; it took only 30-40 minutes) No stress trying to figure out the public transit system. On our way back, we stopped at Trevi fountain that is under restoration, Pantheon, the famous Giolitti Gelateria, and Mouth of Truth.
Many reviewers commented about having to climb a steep hill to get to the hotel; not a problem for us.
Viale Aventino street at the bottom of the hill, we found several grocery stores, and many restaurants. We discovered a very nice restaurant called the Corner. The executive chef Fabio greeted us and explained each course served. What a service!!
We also found many restaurants across Tiber River in Trastevere district; it's about 15 minutes walk from the hotel; head north and cross the Palatino bridge.
You can get a panorama view of the city from Santa Sabina that is about 5 minute walk from the hotel.
Transportation service to the airport for additional fee (We had 6:30 AM flight, so driver picked us up at the hotel around 4AM in Mercedes SUV) It was worth the extra 7 Euros for the convenience.
We'll definitely stay at Hotel Domus Aventia in the future.
Cons: The internet service was spotty at times in our room, but I also experienced poor WiFi service at a $400 a night hotel. To remedy the slow WiFi service, hangout at the lobby area.
endroit calme et bien situé pour visiter RomePros: Très bon accueil, avec possibilité d'échanger en français.
Chambre climatisée et très silencieuse, propre, agréable, vue sur le jardin de l'église.
Réceptionniste 24h sur 24, à l'écoute et de bons conseils pour visiter la ville.
Petit déjeuner complet.
Proximité du centre historique de Rome (circus maximus, colisé, forum romain, palatin...), très proche du métro ou de ligne de bus (mais on peut visiter facilement Rome à pied).
Si nous retournons à Rome nous reviendrons dans cet hôtel.Cons: Quelques fourmis dans la chambre.
