“Great for City Break”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Fantastic little hotel that is great for a city break. The location is second to none, 5 - 10 min walk to Station Termini, 5 min walk to Colusseum, beside stop for city bus tours and close to metro station. This hotel is very clean with friendly staff. The only complaint that I would have with this hotel is that it is not well signed and when we arrived we walked past it as we were on the opposite side of the street and didn't notice it! This hotel also has the smallest lift I have ever seen (taking 1 person at a time), not ideal when your room is on the 5th floor.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone

Room Tip: Rooms to the front of the hotel look out on a very busy road so imagine that this could be quite noi...

My mom and I stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of a vacation. This hotel is centrally located and it was very easy to find our way around Rome. If you plan on doing a lot of walking in Rome I suggest getting a real street map and not one of those tourist maps (they are missing a lot of the streets). The room was small but it was prefect for two people. Beds were comfortable and clean. The staff was very helpful as well!

"Little" is the operative word. The elevator is only big enough for two adults WITHOUT luggage or an adult with ONE piece of luggage. in-house breakfast cafe is not serviced by the elevator. This neat little hotel is cozy and staffs are always friendly. The Main Terminal is about a 10 minutes walk away.
The room is nice and clean, and understandably, the washroom is very compact but VERY functional. I would stay there again if I visit Rome again.

We overnighted in Rome, arriving by train from Naples. The hotel is easy to find - and only about 10 minutes walk from the railway station. We had read previous reviews saying that they would recommend a room at the back of the hotel but our room was street side. Although it would be noisy if you had the window open, it was quiet when closed and the air conditioning was excellent. No noise from that. The bed was the most comfortable we had experienced in our 6 weeks away and the pillow soft.
The staff were extremely helpful and one gentleman suggested a good (not tourist) restaurant nearby which he rang and booked a table at for us. An excellent choice. I think it was called Nouve Stela. Lovely food and good atmosphere.
The breakfast was fine and although it was a little bit cooler, we enjoyed eating on the rooftop terrace.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor, road side and had no problem. No noise from air conditioning either.

Stayed 3 nights at hotel doria with my husband and adult son. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had room over the street. 1st night was noisy rest of stay fine. Service good throughout our stay. Cleanliness outstanding. Breakfast was fine, would have got boring on longer stay though. Mini bar was good value for money. Also 2 cheap su[ermarkets round the corner. Lots of good eating places within 5-10 mins walk. Bad points, size of lift, but it is a very old building. Like over reviewers, would have loved to have used the roof top terrace in evenings. Great location for seeing sights. Only used metro to reach the vatican.

Room Tip: Lower floor because of small lift. over courtyard quieter

Our group rented 3 rooms at the Doria for 2 nights prior to boarding a cruise this summer. There is nothing fancy here but the hotel met our expectations: good value, well-situated, rooms clean and comfortable, attentive staff.
There are however a few things that should be kept in mind if you do chose to book. First off, ask for a room facing the courtyard. The rooms facing the street can be noisy, especially with the windows open. Secondly, if you are claustrophobic, the elevator will be a challenge. In this case make sure that your room is on one of the lower floors so as to not have too many stairs to climb to your room.
Another small detail that management should take into consideration: we would have loved to take better advantage of the roof-top dining area. I understand that there could be security issues with it not being staffed at any other time besides breakfast, but we would have loved to have shared a bottle of wine up there and unwind after a day of taking in the beauty of the Eternal City. It would have made our visit to Rome that much more memorable.
We appreciated what the Doria has to offer and have no problems recommending it.

Hotel Doria is in a perfect location, close to all the main attractions in Rome. The hop on hop off bus tours run right around the corner, which we found very useful to get around the city. The hotel itself is very small, but the staff were extremely friendly and spoke good English. The rooms are to a good standard, the only concern we had was the size of the shower which some people may struggle with! The Breakfast provided was just perfect before a busy day. The hotel also offers free wi-fi, an extra bonus! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Doria and would definitely recommend it to others.
