We stayed four nights in the VIP room which is a junior suite on the penthouse level (room 501). Throughout our stay, we encountered consistently superior service. From Termini station, the hotel is about a 5 minute walk to one of the smaller streets in the area -- Via Gaeta -- which actually has 2 other hotels on each side of Hotel Diocleziano. Since this is the main bus hub, there is a lot of traffic to navigate, but it became a simple, quick jaunt for us after one day. (Since the hotel is north of Termini station, we didn't find the location to be problematic and we felt comfortable walking to & from at night, 9pm-10pm.) During check-in, the front desk gives you a map without asking and writes down what transportation options are available to get to the major sights in the city. The hotel elevator can comfortably can fit 3 adults with accompanying luggage. To get to the penthouse suite, the elevator stops at the 4th floor and you take a short flight of stairs directly to the room door. The junior suite is not large, but can work for 3 adults like we were. In the immediate first room which is a small area that connects with the terrace and bathroom, there's a bed (daybed twin size) that can fit someone who is not bigger than let's say 5'8''. The bedroom is more spacious and there's a king bed (2 twins together). Closet space was adequate, though we could have used more space for 3 adults (unfortunately the first room with the daybed has no closet space). The TV is a small 20 inch in the bedroom with various international channels, though we didn't use it heavily. Underneath the TV is a little refridgerator that is stocked with complimentary drinks. We used it everyday when we headed out and it was restocked everyday. The bathroom does give you plenty of room with shelf space and I was greatly relieved to get a true bathtub. The bonus in the package is the terrace with an umbrella table that seats four. Bun and her cousin took coffee out there one afternoon. It was a pleasure to enjoy some fresh air. The view from the terrace looks towards the Terme and we could peope-watch tourists milling around below. Breakfast was complimentary throughout the stay and the girls ate heartily -- the selection was fantastic. The ground floor of the hotel is definitely 4-star quality: to the right of the check-in desk is a bar with plenty of seating, then the breakfast room is a large space that can pretty much hold every guest in the hotel if they decided to eat at the same time; to the left of the check-in desk is a library with comfortable couches and a large flat screen TV, then there's an area with 3 computers for guest use and then there's a gym for light exercise. The free WiFI service signal was strong in our room. The staff were always friendly. I had to check-out at 5am to catch a flight and the front desk person kindly and quickly put together a breakfast bag for me without my asking. It was a pleasing touch of service emblematic of this hotel after a fantastic 4 days at the hotel.
