For its reasonable price this is a nice hotel. Nice clean rooms, friendly helpful staff. Breakfast is good with fresh coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice served every morning.

If i was coming to rome on buisiness and wanted to be near thw central station area this would be a fair choice. However for tourists the location could be 1-2km closer to the main areas. That said being close to termini its easy to catch the metro etc. though generally I prefer to be located closer to the main attractions.

We booked a hotel near termini to be closer to my parents hotel since they had already booked. Having visited theirs I am so glad we booked diocleziano . Staff were very friendly and bar was inexpensive and welcoming after a day out. We stayed in a superior room on 4th floor at back of hotel. Not a great view but my husband found the lady hanging her washing out very amusing. Bathroom very clean and huge jacuzzi bath soothed the weary legs. Always plenty of hot water unlike my parents hotel. One issue was the bath gel - couldn't even get it out of the bottle ! Hair dryer was a bit slow too do would take my own next time. All in all excellent stay and would recommend.

Dearest Guests,

Thank you so much for glowing review! We are glad that you have enjoyed your time with us and that you have even experience a very “original” Roman feature as the next door lady hanging the washing! :)

It’s always with great satisfaction that we read our Guests’ reviews; this is our chance to learn directly from you your preferences and needs. However, it is also very important to us to be able to satisfy you in every possible way, therefore we are always available for any particular request or help needed while at the Hotel.

In your case we are only sorry that we did not learn in time the difficulties that you have encountered both with the bath gel and hairdryer. As for the first, we are pretty sure that it must have been a production fault since by checking other packaging the gel did flow normally. We are sorry that you did not mention this to us; it would have been very easy to change the bottle immediately for you. As for the hairdryer, we have supplied our rooms with the most commonly used in hotels which, for security reasons, tend to be less powerful in order to avoid overheating. Again, having known about your preference for a more powerful one, it would have been our care to find a solution for you.

Said this, it was a pleasure to learn about your experience with us and we do hope to have you - and your parents – back again to as our Guests.

We could not have asked for a better location or more helpful staff. They were there for all of our issues, from listening to our room query (completely the fault of our travel agent), to recommending a splendid restaurant, to accommodating a late check out at late notice and helping with bookings.
The rooms were airy, clean, spacious and comfortable, and all within less than 5 minutes walk from the Termini.
My recommendation is to use the Metro and not be tempted to walk between every one of the hundreds of noteworthy sites and attractions. But this is easier said than done when you have a clear, mild night at the end of October and there is something wonderful around every corner.

Room Tip: If you want the VIP room with the terrace be very specific with your travel agent. We were misinform...

We were not sure the best place to stay while we were in Rome for 3 days, but this hotel by far was the BEST choice we made. The staff made you feel welcome and were attentive to our needs. It is within walking distance of the train station (1 block) and to the bus stop (1 1/2 blocks). Breakfast was awesome and fresh daily :). The hotel itself was clean, quiet, friendly staff, room was spacious. Even though it was a bit higher priced than some, it is well worth every Euro we spent. We highly recommend this hotel and give it 5 stars!!

Room Tip: Any room would be great!

We stayed just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel and would happily stay here again. As soon as we pulled up outside someone came to help us with our luggage. We arrived earlier than the check in time but we only had to wait about 10 minutes for someone to make up the room. We stayed on room 408 at the back of the hotel which was great, no noise on a night. Room was a little small for 3 people but we don't usually spend that much time in the room so didn't find this a problem. Bathroom was a good size and free minibar with soft drinks and water was a bonus. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. Bar in the hotel reasonably priced and there is a small area away from the bar with a TV and computers if you don't want to sit at the bar. The hotel is a short walk from the train station and if you are returning late on a night then yes there are a few groups hanging around as you walk back to the hotel but don't most cities have this and we never saw any near the hotel.. We would stay here again should we return to Rome.
A tip is to take your water from the fridge in the morning as Rome has many water fountains were you can refill your water bottle during the day as you are walking about.

Room Tip: Try get a room at the back of the hotel were its quiet

We loved that it was close to the Termini train station and yet it was tucked in a little side street away from the hustle-bustle of Rome. We arrived in Rome from Florence by way of the train conveniently and easily but were excited to find the hotel to be quiet, comfortable, and have clean spacious rooms. We walked to a lot of the sites in Rome such as the Colosseum(about a 15 minute walk) but were close to the metro when we went to the Vatican Museum. This would be a distant walk from the hotel, but public transportation like the metro or taxis were readily available. We'd definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it!

Just a 5 minute walk from Termini, this was a very clean, bright, open and airy hotel. Perfect spot to relax after a long train ride. Excellent staff, very nice breakfast in the morning and a mellow bar for a glass of vino. Reasonable price for the location too, there are a few great cafes close by with a market right down the street.
