“Great location, friendly service”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Hotel Dorica is in a very central location in Rome, walking distance to all the main sights as well as central for shopping and a variety of restaurants. It faces onto Piazza del Viminale, and if you had a front room like us with a large picture window it is quite fascintating to watch the comings and goings at the piazza and the government building opposite Hotel Dorica. It also gives you a sense of space and light in the room, and the roller shutter on the window blocked out all outside light and noise making sleeping very easy! They hotel had a normal sized lift which we appreciated. The family room was a good size, with a bay window that gave you room to store your luggage out of the way. The room itself was very simply decorated, which is the only reason why I did not give this hotel a 5 star rating (I would choose 4.5 stars for this hotel if I could) - there was nothing wrong with it, it was clean and well maintained, but there were no extra little touches, it was not a luxurious hotel, but clean and honest.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, Marco in particularly was very pleasant and probably one of the most helpful people we encountered on our holiday. We enjoyed all of his restaurant recommendations! The rooms were kept spotlessly clean and my husband commented that the breakfast staff made the best cappuccino in Europe! The breakfast was very yummy - donuts, danishes, cheese and yogurt - good thing we enjoyed walking around Rome from this location! I felt very safe and comfortable at Hotel Dorica, I often went off for an evening shopping jaunt on my own while the rest of the family caught up with the free WiFi at the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a front room facing the Piazza.

We have just come back from Rome 2 adults 2 teenagers. We stayed at the Dorica for two nights. Hotel had great reviews and I can confirm they are all true. Its clean, rooms good size, great shower, excellent safety box built into wall which is FREE!! breakfast was good but as other people have said would have liked an egg in the morning. We had a great time in Rome we walked everywhere although we planned to take the metro to Vatican but there was a short strike for a few hours so we walked there then got the metro back. Metro is quite cheap and you pay by the minutes not how far you travel. There are two lines A and B really easy to find your way around. Hotel give you a great map of the city with all the sights on it, so walk you see so much more - really fantastic city! Only moan is we had to use the cafe across from the Vatican Museums wow bill was 85 Euros for 4 sandwiches and 6 drinks - Rome is not cheap!

Room Tip: Our room had a hard mattress in it which doesn't suit us but that is only a personal choice.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Dorica for their friendly atmosphere, excellent location, super clean rooms, and smiling staff. I would definitely stay there again when visiting Rome. It's walking distance from all attractions, and the subway is 2 or 3 minutes away. I highly recommend this hotel with no restriction, and we thank the staff for the nice time they gave us.

We stayed here for two nights before a cruise. The location was great, and everyone was very helpful and friendly. The room ( a double) was roomy, clean and had a nice view overlooking the piazza. I would definitely stay here again.

First, I want to tell thanks to the staff of Hotel Dorica great service and hospitality.
The staff called out to us in the friendliness of the every morning and made delicious cappuccino.
I think that is the most delicious cappuccino in my drank tour of Italy.
When we had trouble forget to shop the goods which my daughter bought, Mr. Marco is making a call to the shop, who to negotiate to keep the goods.
I was really helpful.

So, I will introduce about the hotel.
Location is about 7minutes walking down the wide streets from Termini Station.
It is facing the north side of the plaza, there was a bar on the corner.
We went from the airport to the hotel with the taxi, but it was dropped off opposite to the plaza and must search for the hotel.
I think if you request a taxi service to the hotel, and arrived to the front of the hotel definitely.
I think that it is the same fee.
Although I think it was written with the € 40 flat rate is a travel guide, and its price has gone up.
The reception is on the second floor, you can go up in an elevator.
Twin bedroom room is clean and has a wide enough at about 15 square meters approximately.
There is a digital safe.
Wifi is free of charge.
The bathroom had an as requested bathtub ,but the temperature of the hot water was not constant.
I recommend that you use the time you will adjust.
There are a dryer and a shampoo and rinse.
There is not a refrigerator.
During our the first time Italian traveling, it had be extremely kind from the people in Rome.
I want to travel again to Italy.
Then, it thinks that it wants to stay at absolute Hotel Dorica.
Thank you in Mr. Maruko and everyone else, really delightful traveling.

We stayed here for six nights over the New Year. Really easy to get to from the train station. It is in a great location with all the major sights within walking distance. Easy access to the Metro for a train ride to the Vatican. The room was clean and comfortable and the shower was great. We were on the first floor so just a few stairs but there is a lift. It was a little noisy but it didn't stop us getting a good nights sleep.
The staff are really friendly and speak good English. They suggested local restaurants and help with giving us a map! Breakfast is good for an Italian hotel and the coffee is excellent of course. All in all a great place and we would highly recommend it.
