We spent 3 nights at the Dorica Hotel mid-July 2014. We chose it for its location but were happily surprised by the freidnliness of all the staff. Customer service is not only a word, they live it. Thanks all!

Chose this hotel because I needed to be walking distance to Termini but there are many more reasons to stay here. Felt right at home with everyone who works at the hotel and even better they seemed to feel comfortable with me! Although traveling alone, I was given a nice spacious room. As a woman traveling solo, I've often had... More

I got a relatively small room, but since I travelled alone the double-bed room was more than enough. The room was very clean. It had a big comfy shower with strong hot water current. There was also a useful safe and a TV which I've never even turned on. Strong A/C will definitely not let the room get hot (on... More

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

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

We stayed at the Hotel Dorica for a few days early May, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are comfortable, but not fancy.
