Great value for moneyPosted Jul 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel is a 5 minutes from the Castel S'Angelo and the road to the Vatican. Only 10 minutes from other major attractions such as the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps. Rooms are of a good size with basic amenities and good selection of restaurants and bars within a few minutes. Would use again on returning to Roma

Pleasantly Surprised and Happy with our StayPosted Jul 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
While the bedrooms are very simple and dated, the rooms were very clean and the bathrooms are very nice. The front desk clerks and staff were all very friendly and helpful. And we couldn't have asked for a better location. Hotel Diplomatic is located within walking distance to Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. All the other major attractions were an easy bus ride from the front of the hotel. Also within walking distance are wonderful restaurants and a grocery market. My only complaint was finding the hotel from the airport. Take the No 1 SitBusShuttle from Fiumicino Airport and get off at Rome City Centre (the first stop before Termini Station). Hotel Diplomatic is located kiddie corner from the Plaza - just 5 mins walk. I traveled alone with my two children, and we felt completely safe at the hotel and with the surrounding neighborhood.

Great hotel!Posted Jul 12, 2013
Pros: breakfast, cleanliness, room and bathroom size
Cons: the couch seemed a bit older but at least the room was big enough to fit a couch! and it was clean...
Location: good location, could find better, but this was great
Very clean hotel, great breakfast which was included, good air conditioning, and spacious room and bathroom. We travelled to several cities in Italy and this was the best hotel in terms of cleanliness and space in the room/ bathroom. Location was very close to the Vatican and walkable to all of the tourist-y areas outside of the Vatican. The area was nice and quiet and we found some really good restaurants nearby that seemed more 'Italian' and not 'tourist-italian'. Front desk staff were very friendly and there was the nicest lady who served breakfast every day - would definitely stay there again!

Comfortable hotel in an excellent location.Posted Jul 3, 2013
Pros: Comfort and location.
Cons: Some furnishings need updating.
Location: It is a great location between the Vatican and Piazza Navona.
Three of us stayed in a triple room, which we found to be very comfortable, quiet and cool. It was our second stay in this hotel (the first was 4 years ago), and it was virtually the same ... Right down to the exact room we stayed in, and the very helpful people at the front desk ... Especially Luca.

Could be betterPosted Jul 2, 2013
Pros: Location just ok, hotel needs refurbishment and new furniture
Cons: Fan not working
Location: Not close to shopping
No exhaust fan in bathroom, hotel needs new carpets, painting and furniture. Location ok but a bit far from metro and shops. Breakfast limited selection.

Great locationPosted Jun 22, 2013
Just over the river from the Centro Storico, the location is excellent as it's a short walk to everything but quiet and restful at night. Good choice of buffet breakfast. Friendly, helpful reception staff. Small, basic room but had everything you need. I'd stay there again.

Great stayPosted Jun 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
We went for our honeymoon and had a great experience at this hotel. John was amazing at the front desk and helped us out a lot. The location is the best part as it is close to castle San Angelo and the Vatican. Great neighborhood for restaurants and walks. The room was hot for 80 degree weather and there was one guy at the desk that was really rude. Other than that it was our favorite part of the trip. GO TO ROME!!!

Great location- basic but comfortablePosted Apr 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is in a great location- close to mainly highlights as well as shops. It is a basic hotel with all you need. Breakfast is not amazing but just okay. Staff are helpful and speak english- We felt comfortable and loved the location! Will definitely go back there again!
