We loved Hotel Dorica! Great location, easy walking distance to the Termini station. We were made to feel so welcome, the owners and staff made us feel like part of the family, so helpful!

We would recommend this place to anyone, and will certainly be back ourselves. Can't wait!

Dear customer,

Si!!! our hotel has an excellent location to eat well and to visit the town, just 10 minute walk of the main train/bus and metro station in Rome -we invite everyone to see the map of our official website-. Concerning our staff, we all work in a friendly and familiar spirit, that's why we are grateful when our guests feel part of this family.
For all this reasons we want to thank you for choosing our House, your House when you want back at any time!

Arrivederci

Our first visit to Rome - family with 2 teens, and this hotel was a great home base for us. Nice room with comfortable beds and clean bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and got us fueled up for lots of walking. Easy to get to from Termini (and they stored our bags for us when we arrived early, then had them already in our room when we returned to check in). Great value for center of the city. Centrally located to Metro & major bus lines, but most sights are walkable too. What really stands out here is the staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, from a map with recommendations on what to visit, to help with some Italian words, they really were super welcoming!

Grazie for the time you has dedicated to us in writing these words, we are very happy that you liked it so much our staff, our rooms and the hotel in general, because this is our primary goal.
Our central location, our proximity to major historical monuments and the most important Roman churches (like Santa Maria degli Angeli), our magnific view of the Palazzo Viminale, and many other things is possible to see it in our official website.

Grazie for your comments and we look forward to seeing you again in the future in this beautiful city

I stayed a week at Hotel Dorica. I chose it for its location, availability of free Wi-Fi connection and price – and my expectations were met. But there was another plus the hotel has, which came as a nice surprise – the very warm treatment and help you get by the reception staff, who make every effort for the guests to feel home in Rome.

We spent 3 days in Dorica in September. Staff was very helpful to us and kind to our 7months baby. Though the breakast is not very delicious, I think it's not a problem to eat somewhere else near the hotel. Rooms are not very spacious but clean. We had a view on fountain. If in rome, we will be glad to stay there again.

Dear Customer

Thanks for the comment and for choosing our hotel to spend your holidays.

Many of our clients have special requests when making breakfast, it is right because it is people from all over the world, but in Italy a normal breakfast is a good cappuccino and a croissant good :) anyway we serve even more: cheese, bread, fruit, honey, marmalade, butter and different juices, we try where is possible to content our customers with a good service.

The rooms of the hotels have standard size that adheres to our hotel category, the other Tripadvisor users can view the photos by visiting our official website.

For the rest, our Hotel has a strategic location that allows our customers to easily walk to many monuments and historical value, and two of the main streets of Rome: Via Nazionale, with its shops and metro, and Via Cavour which leads to a part of the train station "Termini" and the other from the Coliseum. All our staff is always available to help and inform our clients and so we are pleased to have contributed to make your stay more pleasant in the Eternal City.

Thank you for your comment, greetings to his family and to your "piccolo bambino" ;)

And best wishes for a Happy New Year. -

Hotel was close to Termini station, many attractions all within walking distance. Catch the Roma shuttle from airport to termini station for 4 euros. Hotel is within walking distance even with luggage. We walked to Trevi Fountain in less than 15 mins. Hotel is clean, very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was great and one of the best cuppacino in Rome. Loads of nearby restaurants with fabulous food. Fast wifi. I stayed for 3 nights. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks Emanuella.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing immigration building although you're not allowed to take photos. It's go...

We stayed in the Hotel Dorica 5 days in the middle of November. Warm and friendly reception, good service, clean rooms. But the most important - it's situated very close to all historical places, to Republic metro station and just 7 minutes by foot from Termini railway station, where the train from the airport arrives. Right in front of the hotel there's the Ministry of Internal Affaires, so you can be for sure safe and sound here! If you need something - just ask Florian or Diego at reception. And don't forget to try their famous cappuccino or latte in the bar! Best choice of place-price-quality!
