Great location; very close to the hotel there are very good restaurants and a big parking. We walked to all the attractions without having to use the public transport. The staff were adorabale (thanks Marko for evertything). The rooms are big enough and very clean. We liked very much the breakfast and the good coffee. The hotel is so "italian", we loved it ! We definitely will come back.

The hotel was very efficient and in a very central location in Rome. It was possible to walk to most of the major sites from the hotel although we got a metro to the Vatican (which we could see on TV at breakfast in the morning). We enjoyed the breakfast selection with nice coffee and all the staff were very friendly. The man at reception was very helpful providing us with a map and answered all our questions how to get around and find places.

The hotel has an excellent location, close to all the main attractions and with direct access to public transportation. The rooms are nice and very clean. We are a mature couple from Romania and we enjoyed everything: all the staff were very attentive, welcoming. The location of the hotel is ideal for tourists (the center of Rome, in a few-minute walking distance from the most famous sights and the metro stations); the room was comfortable (cleaning, change of bedclothing – every day); elevator in service; breakfast was served in a very cosy room (cappuccino is a must have!); we also enjoyed excellent wi-fi in the room. We are so thankful to all the staff for such pleasant support of our vacation in Italy! We advise this accomodation to everyone! And we will certainly come back !

my wife and I recently stayed at this hotel. It is very clean, the location is great, and the staff couldn't be better. They helped to arrange for us to take a couple of tours and made all of the arrangements for us. They treat you like family!
Peter was fantastic and really helped us out whenever needed.

Stayed at Hotel Dorica as a couple in 2012 and we both had a great experience! Hotel was very clean and Marco was great. Staff were always available to advise about trips and even booked a day trip to Pompeii for us which was a big help. This hotel was really good value and the location was great and within walking distance of all the main attractions. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

The Hotel is centrally located and well maintained. However, any assessment of a Hotel is very much dependant on the front desk managers. We found Mangers Marco and Florien to be extremely professional, courteous and helpful. We did not find this about Emanuela. Our tariff included prepaid continental breakfast which was served at 7am. As we had pre booked a tour leaving the Hotel at 6:45am I asked (as previous hotels allowed earlier breakfasts if requested earlier) as I am on very strong medication. I asked Emanuela as to whether I could do this and was told that if I had booked the tour with this Hotel they would have let me and as I didn't we couldn't have breakfast ! On the day of the tour I asked if I could have a glass of orange juice but, I was told that the breakfast bar was closed and noway could I have any until 7am !! We went down stairs and ended up having a delightful breakfast at a restaurant next door. In short I found that Emanuela to be at best indifferent and at worst rude to the Hotel guests needs!

Should you be considering staying there we would recommend that you require a tariff without breakfast and spend the money at the restaurant next door which will serve you at a time to suit you without you having to book at tour through them. We have been travelling for 10 weeks worldwide and have never had this experience before !!

Room Tip: Watch out for Emanuela avoid her if possible, she makes Basil Fawlty look good !!!
