Melia Roma Aurelia Antica Hotel
Travel Blogs from Rome
First conference on sensor networking, saw lots of sights and met cool people.
Talk about a baptism of fire. After a seamless morning catching our flight and a beautiful view over the Swiss Alps (my favourite all time flight), the day stopped getting easy from there.
The instructions to our hotel were specific up to a certain point and then got a little vague. We were instructed to get the train from …
Roma - Colliseum, Vatican, HIstory all around, Ruins, Trevi Fountain... Very beautiful place... And hot as hell in July...
-Stayed at the Melia Roma Aurelia Antica Hotel -Went to the Trevi Fountain -Had dinner at Papa Rex [00165 Roma, Via Aurelia, 87]
It was an easy bus ride over to the Vatican, not so easy on the way back...more about that later! We first toured the Vatican museum, which has hundreds of artifacts, some dating back to 3000 BC. It was fascinating to see an actual mummy. Next we went to the Sistine chapel, also very impressive but WAY too crowded, so not all that enjoyable which was a shame. They do not do a good job of crowd control...you felt like you ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Roma Aurelia Antica Hotel Rome
Stayed at hotel the 22nd through to the 25th of June, 2004.
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.
