Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Doria Rome
Great small hotel
I choose this hotel from recommendations on this web site. All reviews are accurate. Hotel very clean. Room was a fair size, tastefully decorated with air con, safe, mini bar and comfortable bed. Our room was at the back of the hotel, overlooking a courtyard therefore it was lovely and quiet at night. The bathroom, as previously reviewed, was small, particularly the shower. We are average size people and found it a squeeze! The concierge were knowledgable, polite and helpful. Breakfast was basic, although adequate and fresh. We enjoyed the roof terrace in the morning. The location of this hotel allows you to walk to all the main tourist attractions, apart from the Vatican. However we were aware that the adjacent neighbourhood could be dodgey and therefore we used cabs in the evening into the centre (5-7 euros). Aviod any parks close by as the one we walked through was full of homeless and drug abusers.
Overall, for the cost of our stay at the Doria (£282 for a double for 3 nights - HotelsRus[-]) we felt this was a great little hotel and would recommed it.
A great hotel nearby Terministation (5 minute walk). Also a great location. Wearing your walking shoes you can do everything by foot from the hotel ( except for the Vaticaan). Our room was very nice and clean, we had no problem with the shower by the way. The electronic save in the room was very handy and the minibar was very welcom at the end of a very hot day (so was the airco) :-) The staff was friendly and helpfull. And having breakfast on the roof of the hotel, looking out over Rome, what more can you ask for!
(if you are not used to traffic noise, perhaps you can bring earplugs, but the noise didnt realy bother us and we had a room on the first floor at the front..)
We can recommend this hotel en we would love to go back again!
We loved the Doria Hotel
Both me and my husband found the staff friendly and very helpful. Our room was comfortable and very clean - what more could anyone ask for. We found it easy to get about as the hotel was within walking distance of remarkable and wonderful sights - transport to all other sights were close at hand. The Metro is a very good way of visiting Rome, I do suggest you avoid the busy times (8.30am & 5pm) very busy, you feel like you are cattle being taken to market. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and always available. I could not find any fault in this hotel - small, friendly, clean and plenty of good restaurants nearby to enjoy your evening meal. I would difinitely return.
Iloved Hotel Doria
I stayed at Hotel Doria on my recent visit to Rome. I was pleasantly surprized to find the hotel to be very,very clean, centrally located, within walking distance to major attractions and very easy to find. I would highly recomend staying at this hotel.
Nice place to stay with a great location
We stayed at Doria in March, 2005 and we found the place lovely. The location is perfect and we could even see a part of Santa Maria Maggiore from our window. Right in front of the hotel, there's a bus stop you can use to get to the main bus station, Termini, which is 3 minutes walking distance, anyway. We couldn't find the location more convenient as we could easily travel everywhere by foot, bus or subway. (We got to the Colosseum by foot in like 5-10 minutes).The staff was very nice and ready to help us with any information we needed.
The room was very small, but clean and cozy. Towels are changed every day and the room is cleaned also. It is true that you have to squeeze a bit to get inside the shower, but it was not a major problem. If you're in Rome for short time and you're running from a place to another to cover all the attractions, definetely there's not much time left to spend inside the hotel, so the rooms they have at Doria are quite appropriate.
Breakfast is served on the 6th floor where there's also a small terrace. Unfortunately, we couldn't use it because the weather didn't allow that, so we had to eat inside, a small room with 4 tables. But the atmosphere was nice and we enjoyed our espresso and caffe latte. Breakfast was consistent, at least for us, and the cakes they provided over there were quite delicious. We had no problem with the noise at all, so nothing disturbed us. It was definetely a pleasant place to stay in Rome.
We stayed at the Doria in August 2004. The Hotel is in a nice part of Rome. You are on a busy street so having your windows open would be noisy. We cant say anything negative about the hotel, apart from the shower is a little small, but thats only a minor detail. The staff were pleasant, breakfast was nice. And we had air conditioning, which is a must! We would definatley go back to this hotel.
We were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival at the Doria. The hotel is exceptionally clean, comfortable and in a fabulous location near the Santa Maria. The owner is part of the staff and has a great interest in the success of his hotel.
The rooms were beautifully decorated. The windows had two sets of shutters and also curtains. We didn't hear any outside noise and slept well.
If there was anything we'd recommend needed improvement, it was the seating in the breakfast room. The breakfast room is on the 6th floor and it overlooks Rome (great view). However, the inside seating is a little cramped at times.
Overall, I'd recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a great price and exceptional quality!

... and into the night. On different days we knocked out the Colosseum/Palantine Hill/Roman Forum and then the Vatican City. Rome was a unique blend of ancient civilisation remnants integrated amongst the modernisation of a 21st century bustling city. The sights were impressive but we rushed through the city as there was so much to see in the short period of time we had. The stories I had been told about gypsies and pickpockets were nonexistent which was a nice ...
... we had reached the Pantheon - the oldest Roman building still in use. However she then finished her statement with "...they sell crÍpes", having missed the famous attraction by being overwhelmed by the shop next door. Nevertheless, we took a look inside before walking on the Piazza Navona, and eventually making it to the Ponte Umberto I bridge, where views over the river Tiber of the Vatican can be seen.
... some lovely morning tea in Maiori at a patisserie and then lunch at Minori. All very enjoyable and the bus wasn't too bad to get home. Had dinner at one of the local pizza places close to the villa, which we went to twice as it was so yummy.
Yesterday we spent our last day at the local beach in Praiano and what a great day it was. We went to a different beach and swam and layed in the sun and then had lunch at a beautiful restaurant ...
... let’s see what Ostia looks like.
We arrive at the station. Not raining. Blue skies. YEAH, I do my happy no rain dance, which is very much like my happy luggage dance, only without the luggage! Clearly, it has rained, hard and fast. The puddles were big, not deep and everything was wet. At least the rain cooled things off…for now anyway!
We walked over the freeway and at last….Ostia Antica. We paid, ...
... been satisfied with that, but those master pieces are only a few of the treasure trove haused in the gallery, Eneas scaling Troy is another Bernini's master piece not yo be missed. Paintings by the hundreds, there is hall that hold the largest collection of Caravaggios, but there are Raphaels, Titians, and so many others that it is truly overwhelming.
The museum limits the time of attendance ...
