Great Hotel! Loved it!
Stayed at hotel the 22nd through to the 25th of June, 2004.
- Friendly and helpful staff
- Clean rooms
- Spacious rooms
- Well stocked Mini bar
- Great Balcony rooms overlooking the huge pool
- Free shuttle to Barbarini Station (30 minutes on Shuttle bus and then only 2 stops down on the orange from Barbarini to the Colloseum) and the Vatican
- Restaurant food above average
- King beds available
- Porter to carry bags
- Concierge desk can book city tours, day trips, etc...
- Early check-in
- High priced room service/restaurant/minibar. Suggest taking shuttle bus into town and eating in Rome.
- Limited Shuttle service. Adequate. Map out where you want to go from the two stations the shuttle will drop you off.
- Shuttle will not pick you up or drop off at airport. I suggest requesting a taxi to hotel. Should pay no more than 30 Euro for two people and bags. Negotiate ahead of time.
- Hotel is out of the way. Close to nothing.
We stayed at the Melia in March of 2004. We were extremely pleased with the hotel. The staff was very courteous. Our rooms were nice, clean, and spacious. The shuttle bus that takes you into town daily was very helpful since the hotel is a bit away from the main attractions in rome. If we are lucky enough to return to rome soon, we will definetely stay at the melia once again!!
The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Getting to the hotel was a little tricky (we drove) since it was located on the outskirts of Rome. We were glad that there was a shuttle bus that drops & picks you up near the Vatican or central Rome (short walk to the Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Spagna, etc.) because driving in Rome is something else! Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting Rome.
It was ok.
I stayed in late April this year. The first room we were given was very hot. They seem to have a problem with their air conditioning because the second room was cooler, but still to hot. The location was very inconvenient for seeing Rome. There is a free bus, but the times are not the most convenient. The food was not that great.

... were in Rome we made a stop to fill up the rental car with “benzene”. At 1,70 Euro per liter she only took another 20 liters. Our GPS took us right into Rome driving along the Tiber River encountering the amount of scooters, pedestrians and autos we anticipated. Not knowing Rome, following the instructions from our GPS was mandatory. It seemed to go crazy, taking us turn after turn with the worst traffic nightmare ever! At every turn, eight lanes of traffic ...
... day. Nick wasn't fast enough with the photo so my memory of this is me looking confused in a photo after Nick said he missed the shot. After a few fake tossing coin photo attempts a nice American girl offered to take a photo of both of us in the photo. I think this was her way of saying give up on the coin tossing photo and get out of here already! We walked to Piazza Nevona for dinner. This is the largest piazza we've seen yet. It's a long oval - similar to Circus Maximus but not ...
... and ate a fine dinner. It was delicious. We finally got home around 11 pm, posted the previous blog and crashed.
The day was overall very cool – we got to hear the Pope say mass. Does if count if we can hear him that we went to mass twice? We saw many of the Roma tourist traps and visited St. Peters. We attended church IN the Vatican and we got to see PJPII.
Only a few days left of our adventure. It has flown by.

... s, and another from far away, seeing the basilica as a gargantuan visage on the horizon. The Vatican and it's basilica were constantly in the background, where ever you walked.
Sunday was the Colosseum, which was the highlight of the weekend in my opinion. It is incredible seeing something so huge that has stood for 2,000 years. Also, just ...
... each other incredibly underwhelmed. I guess when you’ve been in St Peter’s basilica two days earlier, anything else is going to struggle to compare! We also found a great Irish Pub for lunch one day, and sat there watching the cycling (which was due to finish in Florence the next day, about three hours
after our train left, bummer!) and drinking in the sun, living the dream! We made our way to the famous old bridge, before ...
