Stayed here for two nights with husband for a special birthday break. The hotel is in the most fabulous location with St. Peter's and the Vatican within 10 minutes walking distance. The piazza Cavour at the end of the street is beautiful. Some nice restaurants and coffee shops etc within a street or two. The hotel itself is ok. The... More

I arrived on June 29th with a group of 40 people which included adults and 17 and 18 year olds. We arrived in the morning so only 2 rooms were ready, one on the 2nd floor and one on the 4th floor. We were told that we could store our luggage in both rooms while we go out to explore... More

This hotel is fine. It's location is pretty good without being brilliant. It's about a 10min walk to city centre. Breakfast was ok with cereal, meats, toast, croissants. Fresh coffee and the ladies serving were so nice. Reception were hit and miss depending on which one you got. Overall fairly helpful. Check in check out good. Room was fairly small... More

I've been in this charming hotel located in Rme downtown last month and I think is so good for space of rooms and for very tasted breakfast served at 1st floor from 8 to 10 every morning. I taked a comfortable bus opposite the main entrance of hotel to reach Rome center (Vias Condotti). Wonderful choice.

Good rooms and good service. Boring breakfast. Maybe the slowest elevator I have ever seen. Very good location, close to everything. 10 minutes walk from the metro station Spagna if you are going by metro from the airport. Hard to find parking around.

Firstly I must point out that we didn't stay here, but I want to thank Roberto the night manager who came to our rescue early on Monday morning. We were supposed to be picked up by a car to go to the airport which hadn't turned up. The first place we came to that had was open and had someone... More

Excellent location - 15 min walk to Vatican / 30 minute walk to coliseum / lots of restaurants near by. Great service at the front desk & at breakfast. We booked the superior room & it was a good size. Cleaned everyday as well. Basic breakfast but nice enough. Would stay again.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. It was really difficult to find the street as it was not on a map we had. We asked from several peole on the street but every person pointed on a different direction. But once we arrived and learned over our stay how close it was to all the main sights, we... More

In the bedroom we had a tv, mini bar, safe with programmable code. Breakfast was the same every day, nice coffee, continental style.

The Hotel Diplomatic is a pleasant little hotel located on the Vatican side of the Tiber. It is a block away from the beautiful Piazza Cavour and the interesting Castel Sant Angelo. It is an easy walk over to St. Peter's Square and Basilica. We walked down along the river and had dinner in the funky little area called Trastevere.... More

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
