Hotel Doge

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This quaint hotel is a 2 min walk to both Barberini and Spagna metro stations. Close to the Spanish steps and Trevi fountain. The hotel staff provded a map and directions how to get around, which was helpful. My room (single) was very small with a tiny bathroom. The shower curtain can hardly be called a curtain, because it was not really covering anything. I found it quite hilarious. Also the walls are paper thin, so bring ear plugs! Decent value for your money though since the location is wonderful and the hotel seemed very safe. Rome is very easy to get around by walking or taking the metro or tram. There will be a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes! Rome is a very crowdy city and especially on a weekend the lines are long to at least Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica. I recommend getting a Roma pass (available at several tourist info points) and you'll be able to use the metro, tram and bus and skip the lines at the Colosseum. In addition to that you get 2 free entrees and discounts on museum fees. Altough the hotel staff was nice, most of the customer service around the city was terrible. Be prepared for bored faces and waiting for service (and getting chased out of a restaurant table unless you buy more than an ice cream). Tips: A great art museum Palazzo Barberini is located near the hotel. The palace itself with its awesome frescos is already worth the visit. Also Trastevere was less crowded and cute with its narrow streets. Take a bus from the airport! You'll get to the city almost within the same amount of time than with the express train and spend only 4 euros one way.

This hotel was perfect for my needs as I planned to spend as much time out and about in Rome as possible. It's located near the Spanish steps and Trevi fountain, in a shopping/restaurant district. We were able to walk to the Pantheon, Coliseum and Piazza Novona. While it isn't anything special, I didn't go to Rome for a hotel room. The lobby is on the second floor and the rooms on the third and fourth with no elevator but that wasn't a problem for me.

It is very hard to find a conveniently located hotel in Rome for an affordable price. Hotel Doge certainly fit that bill but we were concerned of what we would find there. The location is indeed fantastic, no more than 5 minutes walk to the Trevi Fountain and the Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps). When we checked in, we were too early and the front desk staff, who could have been friendlier, told us to leave our luggage in the adjoining room. The room already had quite a few suitcases and was not secured at all. In fact, we were left all alone in there with other guests' suitcases. Not reassuring. After a great lunch nearby, we returned and our room was ready. The elevator is tiny and is definitely not recommended for anyone with any remote trace of claustrophobia! We decided to throw our bags in it, push the button and race it upstairs... all the way to the 4th floor... We would come to dread these stairs! The room was small, but the bed was reasonably comfortable. It featured air conditioning and a window with a view of balconies of people's apartments. The bathroom was immaculate and a bit larger than usual european downtown hotels. Breakfast was included and was pretty basic. A roll and some pre-packaged pastries, but the cappuccino was decent. With a little work to restore and repaint the walls in the common areas and the stairs, this hotel would look a lot better. Of course, it's pretty basic, but the price is reasonable, and the location perfect.

nice size room with huge bath-could be cleaner.good central location.walk to many interesting locations such as trevi fountain and spanish steps. easy acess to bus service and close to grocery. helpfull staff. beakfast was bare basic---thats ok but cofee could be better at least

Nice quaint hotel. Further from Spanish Steps than anticipated. Warm comfortable bed with flatscreen and clean bathroom. Decent service. Breakfast was poor but good coffee.

the hotel has a great location, the frontdesk attention was nice, the building are not so pretty and you can find somethging better for the same price, but it was clean, but It has NO CONFORT, you can hear every noise of the street. The breakfast was poor (coffe, orange juice and bread or croasaint whith butter)

My boyfriend and I were traveling through several European cities, and we stayed in Hotel Doge for the Roman leg of our trip. The hotel was simple to reach on foot from the train station, and we were easily able to walk to various sites, restaurants, and bars. The room itself was very small, but had everything we needed (i.e. bed, bathroom with shower). The room was a bit loud. We often left the windows open as the hotel requires you pay extra for AC. After a while with the window open, it would get too loud to sleep, and we would have to close the windows. In this way, it's a constant struggle between being cool and having a quiet room. Overall though it wasn't bad. It was cool enough to be tolerable, and the room was a good deal for the area. The breakfast is also nothing to speak of. It's free but only includes a basket which is already placed on the tables consisting of a couple packaged croissants, a roll, and some packaged crackers along with a plate of packaged jellies and butters. The hotel staff waits the tables to bring coffee and juice. We stopped by for coffee and juice and then left to have a real meal elsewhere.

We paid too much for what we got. The Hotel was fine. The staff overall were accommodating, but didn't go out of there way. And that would summarize the whole hotel experience: it was okay but not great. It's not dirty, but it's not bright and clean either. The breakfast was minimal but fine. If I had to stay there again it would be okay, but I would look for another place first.

The room was extremly small, walls paper thin, loose wiring in the hallways. The American version of the no tell motel...dont do it

The upside of this hotel is: fantastic location, quaint, friendly staff and rooms are clean. Down side: The single room is extremely small, okay if you don't plan to spend too much time in your room. Elevator is extremely small and you do have to carry your luggage up a few stairs. Breakfast is delivered to your room, very small selection to choose from.

this hotel was all about the location---- just a few steps away from the spanish steps, great shopping and all that rome has to offer.
