My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. Paolo and the team are warm, knowledgeable and go above and beyond to make your stay special . Restaurant recommendations were carefully thought through as were the directions to them! The hotel was spotless and stylish. The breakfast was superb. Would highly recommend !!
We lucked out by finding this gem on our recent trip to Rome. Since we only had a few days in Rome we wanted to stay near the Colosseum. The Dharma is a haven tucked away in a charming area near excellent restaurants.The bed was so comfortable and the room was spotless. The rooftop bar/lounge is a beautiful place to relax. What really makes the Dharma special is the staff! Daniella, Luca and everyone else we encountered were incredibly gracious and helped us with airport transfers, restaurant reservations and last minute Colosseum tour reservations. We have never been more pampered! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
We just left our stay at the hotel and had a great stay. They admittedly have a small space, but the rooms were very nice and clean. The location was also perfect. But the best thing about the hotel was the service and 24-hour WhatsApp text line. It was SO nice to be able to text them when we needed to find somewhere for lunch, dinner etc, and they were always quick to respond and provide recommendations. They took care of everything including cabs to dinner. Specifically, Antonio and Paulo were awesome. Definitely a place we would stay again in the future!
What a wonderful experience. The rooms and dining area are cozy, the location in Monti perfect and most of all the staff are special. The kind of special that is genuine. They have a pride in their jobs and the property. They are there when you need them - for restaurant or sightseeing advice, or to help you with a cab - but neither doting nor overbearing. The breakfast is wonderful. We stayed three nights and will miss it all!
The most amazing experience we have ever had at a hotel by far. This hotel exceeds every expectation you will have for your vacation. They go out of their way to ensure you are completely and utterly happy down to the very finest detail. It was our anniversary and they truly made it special, with Prosecco, chocolates and cookies. The breast buffet is to die for, everything you can imagine. We woke up late this morning and missed breakfast and they came to our room with pastries and cappuccinos on a silver platter, unbelievable, we were blown away by their hospitality! We got in late Friday and were so hungry and Paulo set us up at an amazing restaurant in town and got us reservations on the fly, incredible! Rooms are spacious, beautiful, perfect air conditioning, just what you need. Paulo and team are simply the best! The hotel is in the perfect location, near so many amazing restaurants and shops, only a 10 minute drive to the Colosseum and other main attractions. We will be back again to this fabulous hotel to see our new friend Paulo and team next year.…
What a wonderful hotel. The rooms were perfect with very comfortable beds. Located in the Monti area which was friendly and with a great atmosphere. Definitely the best area in Rome to stay. Close to all the attractions but with a cool buzzy vibe, although not rowdy or noisy. All the restaurants we ate at were great. However perhaps the nicest thing about the hotel was the staff. They provided such a kind and bespoke service, they could not be more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Look out for Paolo and Colorado who made our stay perfect.
My wife and I stayed 4 nights at the Dharma Boutique hotel for our honeymoon and it surpassed every expectation we had. The location is perfect and we walked everywhere within the city. Paolo and Antonio (and the rest of the staff) were so nice to us and helped us plan reservations. We loved that we had a constant WhatsApp chat with the front desk and could message them at any time. The room was very clean, A/C is great, and the shower is so enjoyable. If we ever find ourselves back in Rome we will be staying at Dharma again!
The staff are super friendly and have the best recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants. This boutique hotel is the top of my list: super clean, friendly, great location and rooms are very comfy and cozy.
Everything about the Dharma Boutique Hotel and Spa was wonderful. We knew as soon as we were greeted by Paolo upon our arrival that we picked the right hotel in Rome. All the staff were friendly and helpful, including Paolo, Antonio and Maura and they made us feel like special guests. We were happy with the restaurants suggested. Our room was comfortable and spacious and the rooftop deck, where we enjoyed afternoon cocktails, was perfect. You can’t find a better hotel that includes breakfast in Rome. So many excellent breakfast choices and all so good. Cappuccinos made with love. The hotel itself is in a great location and many of Rome’s major attractions, like the Coliseum, Forum and Trevi Fountain are in close walking distance. We would highly recommend this hotel. Thank you for making our stay in Rome such a memorable one!…
We honestly can't rate this hotel high enough. After making the booking, they were very helpful and quick to reply by email on any questions I asked and also arranging an airport transfer for us. On arrival they gave us a genuinely friendly welcome and provided all the information we needed to settle in and the personal attention we received from Paolou, Antonio and the other staff throughout our 4 day stay was absolutely second to none. This is a boutique hotel (only 13 rooms) and all the staff will go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy yourself during your stay; don't get me wrong, they aren't at all intrusive but, everytime you walk through reception, you get a welcoming smile and know you have their full attention if you want anything, need to ask a question or just want to know the quickest way to get somewhere in the City. The hotel is in a lovely part of the City and the surrounding streets are full of nice restuarants and all the main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance. The guys at the hotel are full of good recommendations for restuarants, tours, where to visit, etc., and are always on hand to make reservations for you. Making great use of technology, on arrival they offer you a QR code to scan to setup a WhatsApp conversation with reception and throughout your stay you can message them anytime to book a table for you at a restuarant, to reserve the SPA area (which is a must if your muscles are aching after spending a whole day walking around the City!) or even to bring you a bottle of chilled wine while you relax on their roof terrace. We stayed in a junior suite and the room was very clean, modern and equipped with everything you'd need. The air conditioning worked well and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. Breakfast is a fresh buffet with a wide choice for every taste including home made pastries and excellent coffee. The entrance to the hotel is set back from the road so could be a little difficult to find if you make your way there on foot for the first time but the taxi driver's we had knew where it was (if you are looking how to find it before you go the pin on Google Maps is pretty accurate for where the reception door is even though it looks like it's in the middle of a building: find Bar Monti on Google Street View and the door to the hotel reception is down the little path just to the left hand side of the building and between the covered terrace / seating area on the corner of Via Urbano and Via de' Ciancaleoni). This truly is a special hotel and I hope it doesn't get too popular with all the great reviews it's receiving because it might get harder to book in future! Next time we're back in Rome we would not think of staying anywhere else.…
