“Good accomodation,location &service. Noise can be a bit of a problem.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

We stayed at this boutique hotel in late October for our holiday after reading the good reviews on tripadvisor. This hotel is centrally located and is close to two main metro stations, which made it easy to navigate our way around Rome. The room had minimalist design and quite spacious. However, it was not very sound proof. We had a room facing the street (via Turino) and traffic sound in the morning can be quite loud as the street was a busy part of the city. Also worth mentioning that the there was no door leading to the bathroom area.
Service was excellent, the staffs at Hotel Dharma were friendly & helpful in pointing out directions and suggesting places to eat. Breakfast was served at the restaurant next door, consisted of a typical buffet food and was quite average.
Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend to stay here due to location, room quality & service. Perhaps put in a request for a room that does not facing the main street if noise is a bit of a concern for you.

Dear laudanum05,

Thank you very much for posting your corteous feedback about your experience at Dharma Hotel, we appreciate it. About noise: windows are technically soundproof, but we know that walls let penetrate sound - especially when you are in an lively urban context like we are, you get a bit used to it.

Best regards,

Nice, chic, small hotel 1 street away from Republicca. Stayed here on the last night of a long trip. Very clean, small and trendy, tho with some 'design' quirks that felt a little out of place, but definitely cool.

Location: Very convenient walk from Termini and in a nice part of town. 1 min walk away from via Nationale and close to lots of food and transportation (buses, subways are right on Via Nationale, and again a 10 - 15 min walk to Termini).

Hotel: Small bed and breakfast with rooms on the third and fifth floor. Rooms were very big and spacious and can see they put 'effort' into designing different looks for each room. One of the rooms we stayed at had a full size wall for a washroom door... made it hard to open the door, but very cool to know the wall pivots open and has a washroom behind it. Definitely very clean and very modern, but no english tv even though there's like 150 channels.

Staff: Very friendly with the check in process. Helped us get a car to the airport with no problems. Tho they did ran out of maps for our stay, but they did teach us how to get to the vatican

Breakfast: Breakfast is served in a cafe right next to the hotel. Not a terribly big selection but was enjoyable. Made Cappuccino for us and was pretty good. Also had some pretty good pastries in the morning too. cafe is nice and again very modern

The room was really spacious and the bed was sooooo comfortable. The bathroom was excellent and the steam shower was a nice touch. We were told that our room was newly renovated just July this year and t sure looked new. Staff were extremely helpful and service can't be any better.
Breakfast was served in the cafe downstairs and it was great. We missed it the first two days due to early tours, which was a shame.
Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. We thought it was fantastic for the price compared with other city centre hotels. We had a jacuzzi in our room and a balcony, which I'm sure you'd pay at least double, if not triple the price for in other Rome hotels. We also liked the modern decor and little touches like mood lighting and a mini bar (although it should be noted that this isn't free, as we naively assumed, because there wasn't a price list!)

The icing on the cake was the outstanding service that we received from the male manager in particular (apologies, I'm terrible with names!) who made us feel at home from the moment we arrived.

All in all a fantastic stay, and one that we hope to repeat in the future.

We stayed at this hotel in October when visiting our son who is currently working in Rome. The central location was ideally situated for getting around Rome, as the metro (which is very simple to use!) is just around the corner and a regular bus stop is nearby. The contemporary boutique style of the room, with clever lighting, made our stay relaxing. The room was spotlessly clean. The buffet breakfast in the trendy restaurant next door was a perfect start to each day. The service that the staff at reception (Daniella), the manager, and also the chap serving breakfast in the restaurant (I don't know his name) was exceptional, very friendly and attentive. we have stayed in many hotels but this was the best service ever. I can honestly say that the people working here genuinely cared about us having a great stay. Would love to return again, thank you.

I really love this hotel - great staff, convenient to Termini and Republicca stations and very clean rooms. My sister and I enjoyed the breakfast served at Cotto hotel. I am sure I will be back and staying again in Dharma on my next travel to Rome. :)

Ideally located for those traveling into Rome via Termini, Dharma managed to blend modern decor with a personal touch. The staff were genuinely interested in getting to know us - there was no risk of falling into the urban trap of viewing guests as swipe card IDs. Cotto is an outstanding venue for breakfast, again we were welcomed each morning with copious coffee and huge smiles. All in all, a fine hotel in a prime location for those on a whistle-stop tour of Rome.
