We stayed at the Hotel Diplomatic for 4 nights in April. The staff was exceptionally helpful and very pleasant. This was our first time in Rome and the location was as good as any. We were only a 10 minute walk from the Vatican

excellent location. Within 15 to 20 minutes of everything. Stayed here for 3 nights in april. This hotel seems to get very mixed reviews but i can seriously say it is good value for money. Slightly smelly corridors but it is a very old building. The bed is very hard but it suited me. Breakfast was basic continental but for... More

We stayed in the diplomatic for 4 nights and must say it was very good. Firstly the room was a good size and the bathroom comfortable. The pillows were not to my taste as they were a little hard but that is just me. Breakfast was good, fresh coffee, cheese, ham, pastries and cereal all on offer. An excellent start... More

Great location hotel - we walked to all the sights but you can also get a bus to the colosseum from the front of the hotel if you don't fancy the 30 min walk. The hotel is just out of the hustle and bustle so is a quiet(ish) retreat whilst still being central. Room was spotless, beds a little hard... More

I can just say that if you looking for perfect, go for it. Every single details are thoughtful and excellent in the Peninsula. Well spent for every penny with this kind of excellent services. the staff is very attentive. it's a bit pricey but wel worth the cost. breakfast is very good and included in the cost of the stay.

Room: New towels every day, felt cleen (even tough it was carpets on the floor). No aircon in march. The only down-thing: the shower was clogged, we asked two times for them to fix it, but it...

We stayed for 5 nights - liked the hotel and would look to book again in future. As many other reviewers note, it has a great location, being near to the Vatican but also just over the river and a fairly short walk to a number of the other attractions.87 bus to the colosseum stops right by the hotel.
