Historical Traveller Reviews of Quality Hotel Nova Domus
If the Vatican Museum is your destination, this is your hotel.from A TripAdvisor Member
All of Rome has pickpocket problems..don't blame hotel for this. Did not see any around hotel per se. Location is about 5 - 10 min from Vatican Museum entrance..a another 5 or 10 to St. Peters Square. There is an outdoor market between the hotel and the Vatican if enjoy markets. And if you walk the Vatican Wall around toward St. Peter's, keep your eye peeled across the street (before Otaviano) for the little ice cream shop with no seating and a metal rail out by the curb. Huge portions $1.50 for 3 scoops on a cone..and that is the small!
The neigborhood is primarily residential, so there are not a lot of restaurants...eat across the river at Spanga or Barberini before coming back to your neigborhood. Also the Borgo Pio near the Santa Ana gate of Vatican has food. Chinese Restaraunt across street is not wonderful, but adequate in bad weather. There are more Restraunts down on Julius Ceasar.
Staff is helpful..i liked them a Lot. Rapheal is very nice and works constantly. He is very professional and a great guy and will help you out a lot. Nadia in the contienental breakfast room is very sweet and helpful.
For me, biggest drawback was not having a wide variety of food close by. But, also sort of liked the fact that this area did not seem too touristy. If the Vatican Museum is your primary destination, this is the place for you! (and take your roller skates, the Museum goes on for MILES!!! :>)
Be on your guard for pickpocketsfrom CHASSIE
We visited the collesium, on ther first day and decided to visit spanish steps and trevi fountain the next day.
We travelled on the metro which was very busy indeed, the attractions were very crowded for this time of year. It wasnt until the next day that I discovered that my purse had been stolen, all our cash and credit cards, the victim it seems of pickpockets.
Unfortunately our hotel staff were not very helpful.
Be careful of pickpockets in Rome, apparently the metro is full of pickpockets just waiting for tourists.
You get what you pay forfrom AmericaninItaly
The breakfast and breakfast room staff was the only good thing about this hotel. The hotel is Not 5 minutes from the Vatican and is very deceiving from the location on the maps shown as it does fail to includes several streets inbetween, but it is near the metro. The staff did speak English which was helpful. My room was cozy but not well maintained; the shower ceiling was peeling paint and leaked making a puddle on the bathroom floor evertime the shower was used. We used the shuttle service that the hotel advertises, that took us to the designer outlets outside of Rome central, paid 65 euros (for 4 people) when we got there and the shuttle left us stranded and after 2 hours of waiting we ended up taking a cab back to the which costed us 55 more euros. The hotel refused to help us and is continuing to promote this service. I do not recommend this hotel at all, there are many others in Rome.
Very, very disappointedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Nice for European 3 Starfrom apaula
A DREAM IN THE BEAUTIFUL CITY OF ROMEfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I really do not agree with the further comments. In my opinion it is really superficial to give such a value to unimportant things like the colour of the carpet in the entrance hall.
My biggest compliments to the Nova Domus hotel!
I will come back!

Top Local Tips for Rome
Don't do it!! Don't use a taxi from the airport to the hotels in Rome or the Vatican, as we did this and found it a costly and dangerous affair. Our taxi driver was a rip off merchant, pointing out the window at things to distract us so he could push buttons to up the fare - ended up at €78, when it should've been around €35! We know this as we cottoned on, and he pressed a button as soon as we stopped and tried to bump it up another €10. Instead, get train from airport to city centre, which costs approx €12 and takes about 30mins. Service is regular, and then you have good metro connections for you onward journey. we did this on way back and it saved us money and aggro!
Summer nights Along the river by the Castle clubs set up during the summer. They start at around 12am but really get started at 1am. Drinks are quite pricey but the views are great. Coffee is cheaper when had at the bar, but either way, they're cheap compared to London. Vatican is free to enter on the last Sunday of the month (could be every Sunday - not sure though). Gloss Wine bar had free bar food when you buy a drink from 6.30pm and there are lovely little restaurants around Via del Monte della Farina.
Laundry Pack light. Italy has laundry mats that will wash, dry, and fold your clothes. We had one of these right down the street from where we stayed. Hotel laundry services can be very expensive when traveling.
