D.O.M Hotel is an intimate five star property with 18 guest rooms and suites, each with direct views over the historic Via Giulia. Originally a 17th century palace turned Claretian monastery, D.O.M is an abbreviation of “Deo Optimo Maximo,” a Latin inscription found on the church adjacent to the property. The boutique luxury hotel includes unique offerings and comforts such as the distinctive D.O.M suite which boasts a private terrace spanning over 25 square meters with exclusive views of the rooftops and bell towers of Rome’s celebrated Regola quarter.
The inimitable character of D.O.M’s inviting interior quickly dispels any clichés of conventional luxury, thoughtfully designed with the intention of creating an intimate and refined atmosphere typical of Italy’s private aristocratic homes. The entire restoration of D.O.M was conceived and curated by Italian architect Antonio Girardi who artfully blended distinctive design elements within the hotel’s interiors. Original structural components, such as the exposed brick walls and coffered wooden beam ceilings, were wisely preserved and serve as a natural backdrop to furnishings handmade by Italian master craftsmen and an eclectic collection of original photographs, including those of Man Ray and Bert Stern and three original Andy Warhol silkscreens from the “Ladies and Gentlemen” series.
The discreet sanctity of the environment – further enhanced by the blocks of marble with ancient religious inscriptions dating back to the Renaissance and acquired from the church of Santa Lucia del Gonfalone – exists in direct contrast with the hotel’s worldly cosmopolitan glamour. The uniqueness of D.O.M Hotel rests within this intentional spirited dichotomy: a metropolitan haven with a sumptuous ambiance reminiscent of ancient Rome paired with seductive inclinations and a modern, creative flair. The hotel’s inviting character make it a welcoming location for guests, whether in Rome for business or leisure, who truly wish to immerse themselves in the Eternal City.
