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.

... way to see a city! Ever since our FatBike Tour from Paris to Versailles, we have looked for ways to get out and see a new place by bike. This trip was a good as they come.
By the end of the bike ride, we were starving...aside from the excellent breakfast, we haven't eaten a full meal since we left Colorado. So we returned to our hotel, changed out of our "beach wear" and walked to the neighborhood restaurant, San Marco. We have had ...
... runners and we hit the streets. With wandering around and seeing our first glimpses of Ancient Rome and the intricate Column of Marcus Aurelius I was even more excited for the days to come, but first we were dying to get our wine on! So we wandered through cobble stone streets we stumbled on this cute hole in the wall serving an antipasti and wine happy hour. SOLD! So we sat down for what we thought might be a glass and a plate of delicious meats, cheeses, cold pastas ...
... and then manhandled against a barrier. Turns out he was a pickpocket caught in the act and the plain clothes police showed a bit of rough justice. He has unceremoniously carted off and no doubt a little worst for wear. However it did remind us that tourist were very much targets and required to remain viligiant. After this episode it was off to pizza again although this time I tried the risotto for a change! One thing we gave noticed about Italy ...
... line to get the audio from another. And while it's clear how to get tickets, from there it's anyone's guess where you should start. It's a disorganized country in a lot of ways and while we've loved our time here we're ready to go. We just hope England is a little more organized! The other not so great part of the bigger cities is that help (especially unsolicited) always seems to come with a price. People have come up to us while paying ...

Next we visited the Chisea di Sant'Ignazio di Loyala which has one of Rome's optical
illusions. The interior of the dome appears to curve upwards but as you move closer to it it is apparent that it is flat. Then it was time for a coffee back at the Piazza Della Rotonda for a coffee with a view of the Pantheon.
