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.

I decided to adventure Rome, during the dark hours. Everything was lite up. It was beautiful. We stopped by the Trevi Fountain, and it just looked beautiful. The way the lights reflected off of the fountain's water, it was breath taking. I also threw in a coin, for good ...
... decorated with prows of warships captured during battles. The Roman Forum became the spectacular showcase of the Roman Forum filled with beautiful statues and architecture. The main sight of the Forum include the Arch of Titus (Arco di Tito), the Temple of Saturn, Temple of Vesta, and the church of San Luca e Martina. These are all linked by the Sacra Via, the main road through the Forum. Returned home, tired from walking, hot from being in the sun. Found a local cafe ...
... and use the umbrella I have carried everywhere. Managing a bag, a map and instruction booklet as well as the camera was already doing my head in, but now I had one soggy map and instruction booklet and everything crossed that the umbrella would be safe with the lightening. After 4 hours we met up again at the designated point, climbed aboard the Coach and slept our way back to Rome. By the time we got back to the Hotel it was around 7.30, so it had been a very full day. We ...
... was right about the crowd but it was quite noisy, many chattering and even more noise from the guards as they 'SHHHd' and grumbled at the people who blatantly showed no respect for this place or the rules.
It was a smallish chapel I thought, with intricate detail on the ceiling - Michael Angelo certainly left his mark! As a sculptor, he made a pretty good painter :)
We left the Chapel behind and said goodbye to ...
... the city, to some of the more modern places and the places that the guide books we had said we should go to. We went to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and went around the Coliseum again as it was our last day in Rome.
I did not enjoy my last night. There were fireworks set off right outside our room and nearly came through the window. I didn't sleep a wink and nearly died from a heart attack.
Overall, I enjoyed Rome, and ...
