Transiting through Rome twice on our recent adventure, we stayed here for three nights. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were delicious. It's walking distance from Termini station, the historical centre and the opera. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms appear clean and modern. Wifi was free but stronger signal near reception than the room. There was a... More

We were given a very warm welcome from Diego (I'm very sorry if I got your name wrong). He was very friendly who kindly explained to us all we needed to know about our stay and the must-see tourist attractions by providing us a detailed map. Breakfast was included in the course of our stay and that was nice because... More

We have stayed at Dorica in Feb/14 and it was a great experience. The hotel have a great breakfast and the best cappuccino I have ever tasted. The staff was very helpful. The room and hotel localization are the highlights. I would back again... Save your money!

The plus is that this hotel is in a pretty good area you can walk(if your ready for that challenge) and see most of Rome from here. The down side is the price. The hotel is way too expensive for the type of facility they have. The room is small even for Italy and the shower is located separate from... More

Dear customer, We are really surprised of your judgment. Because our beds are of excellent quality, and you had booked a standard room. We understand that the price may seem high for two guys who travel with backpacks, and you had to book with us as a "ultima ratio". But does not excuse your behavior: The fact of not wanting... More

We stayed at the Hotel Dorica for a few days early May, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are comfortable, but not fancy. Beds were good and there was a wall safe to lock things up for safe keeping. The location was great. It was a short walk to the Coliseum, and to most of the sights we wanted... More

Would highly recommend this hotel which is very conveniently located in central Rome. The staff was outstanding, very friendly and helpful. Comfortable beds and great cappuchino! If you are a bit sensitive to sounds so it is recommended to bring earplugs when traffic occurs outside the hotel. We recommend upcoming Rome travelers to choose Dorica if you want a cozy... More

Didn't start well to be honest. The hotel wasn't that visible from the street & we had to wait 5 minutes for the receptionist to stop stressing over the computer but after that things improved. Indeed the fun loving staff turned out to be a real highlight. Room was nice,perhaps a bit small, but very good power shower in the... More

My family of 4 stayed 5 nights last June on a two week trip across Italy. I chose this hotel because of the recommendations on TA and we were a bit disappointed by the location.

We spent 3 nights in this hotel, along with 3 other couples. The rooms were somewhat small, but clean and modern. The staff was super. We could have walked to everything, but for the rain one morning. Breakfast was great. Plenty of restaurant choices in the neighborhood.
