Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Roma Aurelia Antica Hotel Rome
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.

... some yummy gelati. On our way back to the apartment stumbled upon a little biscuit shop with the amazing smell of fresh baking. Had to buy some biscuits and pastries (thankfully all the walking cancelled out the calories). Came home very tired, had a quick rest and then out to a local Pizzeria just around the corner from our apartment for dinner. Antipasta, bruschetta, four cheeses pizza and prosciutto pizza filled the four of us up nicely.
Another early night to ...
... although his mother exercised his true power, until his tragic death at 17 years of age. It felt as if we were the only visitors to this museum and the boys enjoyed seeing the Roman art influenced by Greek mythology, with sculptures of Athena, Hercules, Hermes and many others.
Tomorrow is a big day, as we visit the ancient ruins and the Colleseum. On Tuesday, our last day of this amazing family adventure, we venture to St. Peter's and the Sistine Chapel.
... undergoing some restoration. J&C threw a coin over their shoulder into the fountain as a good luck for megan and her job interview. Apparently 3000 euro is collected every day from the water and is used to help the homeless of Rome
headed back and got ice cream again on the way home then went out for tea and as always, had great food. Luckily I am walking all this eating off
... tackle our first and probably only major climb of this trip: 320 steps to the top of the dome, and that's *after* getting a head start with a €7 elevator ride. Some brave souls do the full 550-step ascent unaided. In fact it's not too strenuous a climb, as evidenced by the octogenarian a few steps ahead of us. The first stop is on the gallery inside of the dome, where we look down at the tiny tourists far below us. It's interesting that this is ...
... manage to be seen in just under one hour and we head into the Sistine Chapel with its famous painted ceiling (and walls, by the way...). People are being ushered in quietly, women are being told to cover their shoulders, and everyone is told no photos or videos. Inside, people stand wayyy to close to each other!!! There is some, but not a lot, of seating around the walls, where people just sit looking a little awestruck. There is almost ...
