300 meters away from the Vatican City, in an modern, elegant, quiet and newly restored apatment the Domus Fabiola Resort offers to its guests two triple rooms with balcony, and one single room, all of them with private and spacious en suite bathrooms with shower and hair blower. Breakfast, served in a separate lounge, is included in the cost of the rooms which are equipped with air conditioning, free wi-fi, mini bar, flat screen LCD TV and private safety deposit box. In the immediate proximity there are the amazing St. Peter's Square (a view of the Dome is available from one of the two triple rooms balcony) the Vatican city, with its breathtaking Vatican museums, and the Sistine Chapel. Three garages, restaurants, theater, pubs, gym, hairdresser, bakery and supermarket are all located within walking distance from the Resort. Three blocks away there is the St. Peter's train station which connects easily and in less than 20 minutes to the main train station Rome Termini. A few steps away there is the #64 bus stop which after crossing the Hystorical Center takes directly in front of the Rome Termini main station. The taxi stand is also one minute away. All the above, together with a superb hospitality by the landlord Marco, is available to provide our Guests with the most enjoyable and unforgettable stay in the Eternal city.
I stayed 3 nights at Domus Fabiola, and really enjoyed it. The space is as advertised: clean and comfortable, but what really makes the experience is Marco. He's a fun guy to talk to, and helped me figure out my itinerary in addition to providing recommendations on all sorts of Rome and Italy related topics. He's very accommodating and made my experience an excellent one.
About the location: I originally thought that staying farther from Termini station would be a bother, but I with the easy access to bus 64, and the Metro line running past the Vatican, it wasn't a problem at all. You can get to some of the major attractions in the center in 20-30 minutes by bus/metro, and faster by taxi (much nicer than a bus). The neighborhood is right next to the Vatican (which is gorgeous) and has lots of little shops, cafes, and even a grocery store.
The only downside to the space is that rooms are so close to the check-in area that if someone is leaving early in the morning you might be woken by the bustle if you're a light sleeper like me. I think this is minor and isn't a big deal, particularly if you bring earplugs and want to get a jump on your day anyway.
Overall: Highly Recommended
