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.

... Romans, they were a necessity in sanitation as most of the population of Rome lived in crowded tenements without running water or sanitary facilities and provided an opportunity to socialize. The ruins of the Baths of Caracalla are breathtaking and are a magnificent testament to Roman architecture. One must note the many arches used throughout the building for both stability and aesthetics. The Baths of Caracalla are a must see when ...

... all of the history behind the paintings on the ceiling and walls. St. Peter's Basilica was so cool though. I saw a few of the Pope's tombs including Pope John Paul II and even some of their actual bodies. I got to pray at the spot where Peter was crucified and look at his tomb underneath the church where most of the former Pope's tombs are. I was in awe of all of the artwork from the kings of art such as Michelangelo and Bernini. We even climbed the 551 steps to ...

. When the gate opens at 7:30 am, everyone rushes for a seat where they sit until 10am when the Pope comes out to talk and bless the audience.
Oh no, another early morning, rising at 4:30.
Finally, Sister Ann Marie shows us that we have tickets for the section closest to the Pope, only about 30 ft from where he will be sitting. ...
