“Romantic Rome Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Our 3 night stay in the Dharma hotel was nothing less than perfect. Our trip to Rome was for a special anniversary and the hotel were very kind in fulfilling a request made when booking the asking if they could do something to make the trip even more special for us. Hotel Dharma did not fail to delivery surprising us with a lovely bottle of presecco one evening,

The hotel staff are polite and friendly. We can not fault them on service, we choose not to use the concierge service but we did witness the hotel staff helping another group with their tours and i'm sure if we had required any help with tours or information they would have proved useful. We were shown to our rooms on arrival and given a short "room tour" to assure we knew how to use all the features available.

The room itself lived up to all expectations, opting for the room with a Jacuzzi, steam room and balcony was a great idea and worth every penny. The room was very spacious, with marble floors, air conditioning and a fire place (although we happened to visit during a very hot 20 degree November). The bed was comfortable with a nice sturdy mattress and lighting above the bed. The bathroom had matching "his and hers" sinks and was very modern, they also provided bath slippers, herbal shampoos and body wash and bath salts for the Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi was spacious and the hotel provides tea light candles to be used next to the jazcuzzi, which also featured LED star lighting above. The balcony in our room was great, the view wasn't fantastic but it did have balcony furniture and a lantern.

The room was clean and we had a maid service everyday. Despite having relatively late starts (around 11 a.m) the maid still cleaned our room everyday to a very high standard.
Aside from room quality and service the Hotel Dharma delivers on location, being placed at an ideal tourist spot we were able to do most of our sightseeing by foot, apart from our trip to the Vatican for which we decided to use the Metro from Metro station Repubblica located 1 minute walk away from the hotel.

There is no doubt we would come back to this hotel if staying in Rome again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 302

We stayed at Hotel Dharma for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The rooms are spacious and newly renovated in a modern style. Our first night we stayed at a Boscolo Hotel and found the room to be very old and grimy so it was a pleasant surprise to find that Hotel Dharma was so much nicer. The staff was also very nice and provided great recommendations. The only recommendation I would provide is to request a room away from the street if you are a light sleeper since the hotel is located near a busy street. Other than that, the location of the hotel was perfect- walking distance from both Termini Station/Metro and the Republic Metro as well as the 40 and 64 bus stop taking towards the major sites. We would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again during our next visit :)

The Dharma hotel is clean, perfectly located and the staff is very helpful. We had a wonderful stay at this hotel and if we would get back to Roma we would probably stay here again.

We did not had problems with the traffic noise outside, but the wellness suite we had was in front of the reception so if people walked by we did hear this. On the other hand it's helpful to have the reception on the same floor so not a big problem for us.

The restaurant where they serve breakfast - Cotto - is nice too. A good place to have a drink in the afternoon.

Stopped here for three nights last week for our anniversary trip to Rome.

The reception we received from Max was excellent, he couldn't do enought for us. He fully explained the facilities and showed us to our room which was perfect for our needs and immaculately presented.

The hotel is centrally located within a five minute walk of Termini station, the Metro at Republica is a 2 minute walk away and makes travelling round the city easy. It is only a short walk to lots of the major tourist attractions.

I asked the receptionist for recommendations for a romantic restaurent to eat in for our anniversary. He recommended two and I chose MaterMatuta. The receptionist booked our table and we were not disappointed and had an excellent well priced meal.

Because of this we chose to book the other recommended restaurent "Ristorante Tema". Again the experiance was excellent.

Both these are within a ten minute walk from the hotel.

Our trip was memorable, we cannot fault the hotel and staff in any way and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone visiting Rome.

We only stayed one night in Rome so can't compare to others. This was a gorgeous hotel and in fantastic location. The staff is soooo accommodating and friendly. Thank you Max for helping us get to the airport. We were upgraded to a wellness room: large room, very clean, beautiful lighting, great shower, cozy bed, great a/c, free WIFI, balcony, spacious, 10 min walk from Termini train station. The city is loud at night but the hotel is worth it.

Room Tip: Rome can be loud at night between 1-3am. Not near the airport but near everything in the city.

The staff was generally polite and helpful. The location is very good. The breakfast, which was a few doors down the street, was substantial enough for a morning of sightseeing.

Going for the boutique-hotel look but bathroom lacked proper construction. Water leaked out of space in shower door onto floor. After our complaint, there was an attempt to fix the problem but the flooding persisted. Water also splashed outside the sink area because the facet is too high and the sink is relatively shallow. The lighting system in the bathroom was impractical. No chair to sit on in the entire suite, just one foot stool. No wrack to place suitcases, which had to be put on the floor

Dear Europhile_Pacific,

thank you very much for staying at Dharma Hotel.
I am sorry you haven't enjoyed your stay and you had some issues with bathroom.
Let me say we have now reduced the water pressure and fixed the water leaks from shower.
Just a temporary issue, of course, we couldn't have book that room for the last two years without having a massive complaint by any guest. I understand the Feng-Shui washbasin might be a bit hard to understand and the lights as well but, as you mentioned, this is a design boutique hotel, if you're looking for standards we are not the place you looking for.
Sorry that you haven't spent good words over our customer service as well.
Looking forward to meeting you on your stay,

Best regards

Right from the moment we arrived we had such an enjoyable stay in this lovely hotel. We received a friendly welcome and were given maps and other information about nice places in the city to eat. They also booked tickets for us on a tour bus around the city, recommending a good one. The room was massive, very open and extremely modern. It was boiling the whole time we were in Rome and the air-conditioning was fantastic. We definitely enjoyed coming back to cool down after a long day of sightseeing. The bed was comfortable, we had our own wireless router in the room giving faultless WiFi, and the location was excellent. The Termini station is only a couple of blocks away and there are Metro stations and bus stops within only a few minutes walk. Overall, we could not have been happier with our stay and have been recommending the Hotel Dharma to all our friends who are planning to visit Rome!
