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! The room key is large, so you can turn it in to the desk each time you leave and Giancarlo always remembers and... More

Stayed here in March 14. The hotel is located in walking distance of Vatican City and the Spanish steps.

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...

We stayed at the hotel in April 2014 for a week. The location of the hotel is perfect. You are close to everything and you can just walk everywhere.

The hotel was recommended by friends who had stayed several times and were very complimentary. Found it in a great location for both sightseeing and the airport bus. Comfortable, clean and good service. Had the luxury of a rooftop balcony which was an unexpected delight.
