Domus Sessoriana Hotel Information
Unique and fabulous! Unique for its style, fabulous for its history and excellent for its value-for-money accommodation. Oh, and let's not overlook the excellent location - only 10 minutes' walk to the Colosseum and only 3 metro stops to the main railway station Termini; we are proud to concede that rarely have we offered such a hotel. Housed in two wings on either side of the historic San Giovanni Laterano Basilica, the Domus Sessoriana offers extremely spacious accommodation and grand corridors dating from the time when these rooms were used by Cistercian monks. Within the grounds guests can marvel at the ruins of a Roman amphitheatre, which is now the setting for vegetable garden, and enjoy the serenity of not only the hotel's interior but also it's exterior. Guestrooms offer modern amenities whilst retaining much of their original character. all are elegantly furnished with handcrafted furniture and each room provides bathrooms with shower and hair dryer, air conditioning, satellite TV, telephone, internet connection, mini-bar and personal safety box (several spacious rooms are also available for handicapped guests). an excellent choice for those in search of something different but with all the trappings of a regular hotel.
The hotel is located within easy access of all the main tourist attractions, not far from Termini station. The hotel is set inside the Santa Croce in Gerusalemme Basilica, in an area which was residence of the ancient Emperors and where it is still possible to enjoy the view of the ancient remains. The hotel is built on top of the house of Queen Elena, mother of Emperor Costantine, and it is possible to admire, inside the hotel, some remains of the house.
The structure disposes of 60 rooms of various dimensions and different typologies: singles, doubles, a three and four bed, junior suites and suites. The rooms are elegantly furnished with handcraft furniture. Each room is completed with the maximum of comforts: bathrooms with shower and hair dryer, air conditioning, satellite Tv, telephone, internet connection, mini-bar, security cassette. Several rooms are disposed of services for handicap keepers. All rooms are no smokers, according to law. Superior rooms are all at the first floor of the Conventual wing of the seventeenth century with vaulted ceilings, wide spaces and WI-FI connection.
The lobby is medium in size and reproduces the original features of the monastery/museum, with its high walls and massive paintings. The seating area recalls the simple life of the monks, where the dominant material was iron. Flowers and plants help to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
