D.O.M. Hotel

Via Giulia 131, Rome, Latium, 00186, Italy

Fodor’s Expert Review

In an old convent on Via Giulia, one of Rome's romantic ivy-covered streets, the D.O.M. (Deo Optimo Maximo) is an ultrachic luxury hotel that resembles an aristocratic casa nobile. The interior has a mixture of antique furnishings and cool contemporary fixtures such as wood beam ceilings that date back to the 1600s, original Andy Warhol silkscreens, rustic exposed brick walls, and sacred scriptures inscribed on marble slabs from the 15th century. The rooms, in warm neutral browns and grays, overlook the street. For real pampering, book the D.O.M. Suite, which has a 25-square meter terrace overlooking typical Roman rooftops and bell towers. The real gem here, though, is the opulently cozy bar and restaurant, an outpost of Achili al Parlamento, where you can sit next to the fireplace during the winter and enjoy some of the city's best cocktails.
