Travel Blogs from Rome
We have contemplated Segway tours in other cities before - in fact, Matt did one on a business trip to New Orleans recently - but we finally got our chance to partake in this exciting tour style together! We arrived at Rome by Segway at the prescribed 7:30 pm. We would be joined by another twosome (from Czech Republic), which made for a nice, small …
We woke around 7:30 am after a reasonable sleep (Matt was up for about an hour, but otherwise...) and headed downstairs for the hotel's typical European-style breakfast. It was very good - lots of varieties of cheese, bread, cold cuts, fruit, etc. and, of course, Cappuccino, which the Italians consider to be a breakfast drink. There was also a …
After freshening up at the hotel, we asked the hotel concierge for a lunch recommendation, and he sent us down the street about 100 meters to La Famiglia. It was noon, but they seemed to be just opening up. We were given a table in the nearly-empty restaurant, but any trepidation was overcome by the beautiful antipasto display near the front entry …
After a smooth flight (one connection in Montreal), we arrived 30 minutes ahead of schedule in Rome. Of course, this meant there was no gate available for our plane, but we were provided with a stairway and buses to the terminal. No problem! Customs, much to our amusement, involved waving our (closed) passports in the vague general direction of the …

Visit St. Peter's Basilica on a Sunday if you have the chance
The line up we waited in yesterday for St. Peter's was not even comparable to the massive queue today. Since the museum was closed yesterday, far fewer people came to the Vatican City and we only waited about 15 minutes to get through security at the basilica (twice, in our case, due to my bad wardrobe ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Diocleziano Rome
Wir haben Ende Juni 2006 hier fünf Nächte verbracht. Wenn man am Termini Hauptbahnhof ankommt ist alles etwas schmutzig und stinkig, aber wenn man mal die Straße überquert und zum Hotel an der ruhigen Seitenstraße gelangt, ist alles wieder gut.
Like mamy users of these reviews, I try to avoid having my short holidays spoiled by selecting the wrong hotel and I read quite a few reviews before selecting Hotel Diocleziano.
Spend 5 nights there end of June 2006. When you reach the Termini Main Train Station everything´s a bit dirty and smelly, but when you cross the street and reach the hotel in a quiet side-street everything´´s fine again. As mentioned the hotel is renovated. So you feel like living in a brand new hotel. The room and the bathroom were very nice, enough space as well. It`s cleaned every day. You`ve got a tv there, about 10 italian channels and bbc world, so only one english speaking channel, but hey-you`re in Rome.... ;-) There`s a small fridge in the room with coke, fanta, juice, soda and water in it, which you can drink for free every day, the next morning the cleaning staff fills it up again, so very nice service as well. The breakfast is nothing special, but all you need with the coffee or cappucino you like. A very friendly woman asks you every morning which coffee you like to drink. As mentioned from the hotel it`s only a 3 minute or so walk to Termin Station where the Metro and all the buses can be used. Most of the time we walked but you can use the No. 40 Express to Piazza Pia to reach all the main sights. A ticket costs you 1€ per person-you can buy them at newspaper stands. A good way to discover "where you are" is to use the open 110 busses which take you to all the main sights in a 2 hour trip. A good thing to get a first impression of the city, tickets cost you 13 Euro, but it``s worth it. So we absolutely enjoyed our stay in Rome and loved the Hotel Diocleziano with the nice and friendly staff. Time to bring the Hotel up in the Rome-Ranking... ;-) have fun in bella roma!!!!
New, Clean and Convenient Location
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Diocleziano for 4 nights (22nd-26th June).
It was completely refurbished in Jan06 and so everything was new.
It is in a good location next to the Termini station (about 3 min walk) but the area itself isnt very nice.
The rooms are on the small side but they are kept very clean and there is a free minibar in the room as well.
The breakfast selection isnt vast but it has all the main breakfast foods - cereals, bread, fruit, yoghurt etc and it was all fresh.
The guys at the reception were always helpful and polite.
Overall the hotel was excellent.
When we first walked up via Gaeta to the hotel, we were a bit concerned because we were nearing the end of the street and we could see scaffolding outside what we thought was it. However, there was nothing to worry about. This hotel has been recently built and our room was wonderful, lots of space and nicely finished. We stayed here for our last night in Rome and were hoping to just chill out and relax in comfort and it provided just that. Breakfast the next morning was a nice buffet with a wide variety of choices. The hotel is also in a good location near the Termini station.
PS. The scaffolding was for the hotel next door which seems to be in the process of being renovated but there is no resulting noise problem or disruption in the Hotel Diocleziano.
My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the hotel Diocleziano.
Beautiful days in Rome
I stayed 2 nights with my wife at this hotel after reading Tripadvisor reviews. Every word is true. Hotel is in a good and quit location, Close to the Metro in the City Center. People at the reception were very friendly and helpful. Rooms was vey nice and when we arrived there was a free welcome coffee. The Diocleziano is a new hotel in Rome, it have about 35 rooms, i think our room was the best with a private terrace facing the Diocleziano ruins: a beautiful view! The breakfast was very good to.
As this was my first trip to Rome, i did all of my planning and selecting of hotels/restaurants online. In the past, i have had very bad luck sometimes with selecting a hotel online, so i was fearful that Diocleziano might not be as nice as it seemed. However, upon arrival, all fears were dispersed. We arrived at the hotel at 9:30 am (having taken an overnight flight the night prior) to drop our bags off. Much to my suprise, they had our room ready! It was wonderful to be able to go immediatly to our room and relax a bit. The room was a nice size, extremely clean, great windowlight, full bathtub and free minibar. Very comfortable. When we had questions, the staff were all very attentive and helpful. Our room was cleaned thoroughly each day. The hotel was in a great location in the historic center of Rome. The metro is right out the front door. I loved staying at the Diocleziano, and would certainly return.
Good hotel in Rome!
Trying to find a hotel in Rome was harder than I expected, I didn't realize that just staying for one night was expensive almost everywhere I looked until I found the Diocleziano. The room was very clean, staff was very nice and there was free american breakfast which was good. I would definetely reccomend this hotel.
A new hotel in roma
I was in Rome for business and my office booked for me the Hotel Diocleziano, a new four stars hotel in Rome city center, near the Termini Station and the airport train transfer.
Diocleziano is a very nice new hotel, my room was large and confortable and i paid about € 140,00 for one night including american breakfast. People in the hotel was very kind and helpful. I think this is the best value for money I ever had in Rome.
