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.

... was scared. Which really ****** me off. I tried to create some space around her by planting my legs behind her so she wouldn't be shoved. Sam Jackson was doing ok at the back, but we were all ready for this to be over. With 10 minutes to spare before our flight was scheduled to depart, we got to the counter, and the passport control agent cursorily glanced at our passports and waved us through. Sam, in front, began sprinting through the terminal to find our ...
... to just glow. One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Released into the bright sunshine. Pope gone but no good photos as portable chairs still inhabit the square. This tour was meant to finish at 1pm. It is now 2.30pm.? Time to visit the fountain? Sadly, no unless I get the later train. Decide to play it safe and walk back up the hill to the station. Journey back was horrendous. Standing room only. Supposed to take an hour. Took over ...
... to try and use the computers the hotel provided as the internet connection was so poor. People would take their coffees from breakfast, read the papers and try and get on the computers. It meant for solo travelers like me, it was easy to strike up conversations with others. I met some great people who were very interesting. One morning I met an American guy who built aeroplanes and was on his way to Salzburg to meet up with the Red Bull ...
... long before we'd had enough, it had ruined the experience that we'd desperately been waiting for, so moved onto the front of St Peter's Basicila.
We stood for a moment looking out onto the square, the view from here was unbelievable. Past circular columns you could see miles of houses and buildings beyond. The doors to this magnificent building stood tall and I'd never stepped foot inside somewhere so spiritual. The statues, ...
... I will try to do better with keeping you guys updated, I still need to tell you about my trip to Tuscania (no, not Tuscany) with my sketchbook class, it was pretty wild. But that will have to wait until next time.
Oh, one last thought, Happy belated birthday to my awesome mom!! So mad I couldn’t be there for the festivities but I heard it was one heck of a time. Don’t worry mom, your gift is pretty awesome. Missing you guys back in PA.
