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.

... garden look very lush and wonderfully inviting. While sitting in the room one can feel a sense of calm over them due to the peacefulness of the painting. This artwork shows us how the wealthy roman society lived. Livia, the wife of Augustus, had this painting created for her dining room. This is a very excessive painting and it allows us to see how well they ...
... I checked them out for a good amount of time, enjoying the huge ruins and the wandered around the area a bit before heading home and calling it a day.
My last day in Rome was quite uneventful, it was the day I decided to get laundry done and then apparently wanted to read or finish reading Great Expectations, can't remember when I started. It was a nice lazy day.
... arms. Mental note - never get in a selfie comp with an orangutang - but I digress! When we saw the line to actually get into the place we thought it would be a bit like doing acupuncture with knitting needles so we continued on our walk and we would book the tickets electronically tonight. From here we went to the Castelo di Angelo, another reference to the Angels and Demons book and movie at this place. Emperor Hadrian had a hand in this joint as well. He was a pretty powerful ...
... managed this without the GPS.
The whole day worked out really well. I'm so pleased I got to Rome as it had not always been on our itinerary.
Wow, this is week one of the trip done. Feels like we have been away a month already. Love, Love, Love Italy. Can't believe I still have 6 weeks of holidays left!! Can we keep up this ...
... places in Rome, don't dress like me. I was not allowed in any the first couple of days because I was dressed "too provocatively" so I had to save them all for my last day there. All in all, Barcelona and Rome were polar opposites, which is exactly what I was hoping for; I relaxed and partied in Barcelona and got into full tourist mode in Rome. I am so happy with my location choices (it was a tough one with anywhere in Europe as my option) and at this point, I feel like ...
