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.
