We were on the 4th floor - double glazed window in tiny room, very quiet for city centre - we slept well. We were on the front - main rd, but no problems. We would stay here again because of the good city location and ease to walk to main attractions we wanted to see. Breakfast pretty good every day,... More

The hotel was perfect for our 4 day stay in Rome. Breakfast was great, rooms were nice and clean and location was perfect. The staff went out of their way to help when they saw you needed it. Everything you need for a great Rome vacation.

This hotel is right in the center of Rome. You could walk to many of the attractions within minutes. We actually caught a taxi one morning to the Colosseum, then laughed when we realised how close we actually were :-/ The breakfast is good, with a nice selection. Our room was nice and big, and the bathroom was gorgeous! There... More

Have just returned form a 5 night stay at the Diplomatic with my husband. Excellent hotel, the room was very clean with maid service every day. We were asked if we wanted front or back room but opted for the latter as the road is very noisy and busy. We were also offered an upgrade to a room with a... More

This is a great hotel if you are on the run in Rome- If you want luxury, look elsewhere. You enter the hotel into a small lobby and you are greeted with enthusiasm and help by Giancarlo!

We stayed at the Hotel Diplomatic for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The location is great--about a 10 minute walk to the Vatican in one direction, and 10 minutes across the river to many of the other sites (just a bit too far to walk to the Colessium but otherwise, most everything else was walkable) There is a...

To avoid, extremly dirty, especially the bathroom, noisy, claustrophobic - the double room has 10 sq metres. Mold on the walls, bathtube and shower never cleaned, taps covered with decade-long dirt, even towels not very clean. In compense the hotel is quite expensive... Have some photos byt unable to load'em here...
