“Great Location”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for our four night 'mini-moon' in Rome. As soon as we arrived we were helped with our bags and taken to see a very helpful lady at reception. She gave us a map of Rome and pointed out the main attractions and mentioned the public transport (should we wish to use it) to be used to get to the further away ones. Turns out that the hotel isn't more than a 30 minute walk away from most things so our feet were the only things we needed! As we were on a honeymoon we wanted somewhere special to eat on our last night, the lady at reception recommended a lovely rooftop restaurant not far from the hotel (although as bad luck would have it, it was raining so the restaurant had a cover over it. Still a great place though).

Our room (401) was clean and spacious with a lovely big bed. It was overlooking a street but noise from traffic was not a problem at all.

We ate out every night and it was lovely to come back and have a quiet drink in the hotel bar (and use the wifi!) before bed. It's a small bar but well stocked and a nice relaxing place to sit.

The only thing we struggled with was finding an iron. There wasn't one in the room and the only suggestion from reception was to use the 24 hour laundry service, which wasn't helpful to us as we had a creased shirt that we needed for that night (the old trick of hanging it in the bathroom with the shower running worked fine in the end!)

We would definitely return to this hotel as we enjoyed our stay here so much, it's in a great location and the staff are helpful and friendly.

Thank you for your kind comment.
For security reasons, we do not allow customers to iron in the room. There is an external laundry and ironing service that delivers within 24 hours, but in cases of urgency, the Housekeeper can iron in house.
Maybe there was a misunderstanding and we did not realize you needed the shirt for the same evening, next time you come will not happen again.
See you soon!

My husband and I prefer very nice, but not "stuffy" hotels - and this fit the bill. We stayed 4 nights (November 11th - 14th) and the location was great - an easy walk across the Tiber to the Spanish Steps or the Piazza del Popolo. And walking to the Vatican was a breeze. We even walked down to the Travestere area for dinner one night which was beautiful.

The room was large (we did have a deluxe room on the 6th floor) and extremely clean. The bathroom was updated and large too - my husband is 6'4" and showers in hotels can be rough for him - not this one! The amenities were fine (no conditioner though).

We ate breakfast every day in the hotel and it was just fine. Nothing too special but it was easy.

And the staff were very helpful and kind every time we needed them. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and if we go back, I'd stay here again!

I agree with you.
The Hotel dei Mellini is so well located that is possible to go everywhere by walking.
In addition to the places listed by you, it is also easy to walk to Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Castel St. Angelo, Ara Pacis, Fontana di Trevi, Via del Corso, Via dei Condotti etc.
Our Concierge is always at disposal to show itineraries and to give information on dining in Rome.
All the bathrooms on 6th and 5th floor has been redecorated last month so if you come back your husband can have shower even more comfortable now.
Thank you very much.

Good hotel, good location. Helpful staff in breakfast room and porters good, reception not so much.

I'm not the type to sweat the small stuff but a lie in and some r&r time to read my book or relax in my room is important.At present the renovation work starts from nine into the early evening,consistent banging and drilling from when you wake up to when you get back from a day exploring the city.

Not much to ask for to have a relaxing time when away, but at the moment unfortunately here you won't get it,oh and don't bother to tell reception they're not interested.

We are very sorry to read your review but as I said before, everything is good to improve and grow.
WE ARE NOW FINISHED to redecorate all the bathrooms on the 5th and 6th floor so no noise, no banging or drilling, no any effect at all at the moment. To be exact, as also explained in the previous answer, only on the first day of works there were some noises that might have annoyed customers, we immediately intervened by stopping the noise and postponing noisy work in the afternoon.
The thing for which I am most saddened is the bad perception that you have had of our reception staff, usually always getting good reviews. We really hope that you will give us anther chance and we will be pleased to make you change your mind on us.
Thank you very much for your review.

We booked the hotel on the basis of previous reviews. It was definitely in a great location. 10 minutes walk to the Spanish steps and slightly longer to the Vatican and Castel St Angelo. The public areas were small, but well kept. However, we were slightly disappointed with our room (208) which was small and quite dark. It did have the advantage of facing inwards so we did not get any traffic noise from the street but it really didnot bear any resemblance to the room photos posted on the hotel website. In addition, while we were staying the whole of the 6th floor was being renovated and the noise from the builders started before 9am each day during the week. The breakfast service was OK but fairly limited in range and would have got very boring if we had been staying for more than a couple of days. The service we received from the concierge/ doorman was great, but reception was not so good. Perhaps my views were affected by sitting in the reception area one evening - to use the free wifi- only to find that the staff on reception were very loud and noisy and were obviously having a lot of fun, behind the scenes. There just wasn't much help available at the desk itself.
We have stayed at a number of hotels in Rome and whilst this was good for location I would not make a special effort to go back again

Room Tip: Avoid room 208

Thank you very much for your kind review.
You are absolutely right, the hotel is situated in a quiet area but at the same time close to the historic center. It is easy to walk everywhere.
We are sorry that you didn't like room 208 which is one of our basic room, all the rooms are different between one and another and the satisfaction of them depend on the client's taste (someone likes to have room facing the rear, someone in the front, someone next to elevator, someone far to the elevator, someone on the last floor, someone on the first floor).
It is very important inform the reception if the room is not what aspected, our staff is always at disposal to offer an alternative room.
WE ARE NOW FINISHED TO REDECORATE ALL THE BATHROOMS ON THE 5TH AND 6TH FLOOR.
For the sake of honesty, we have to say that the 11/18/13 ( first day of redecoration) due to a communication error with the workers, there were some noises that might have annoyed customers, obviously we have taken action promptly and in the following days did not appened.
We really hope that you change your mind and that you will come back one day, we will be glad to assign you a room with a brand new bathroom.
Thanks again for your comment that, like all others, will contribute to our growth.

Very good hotel in the Vatican area of Rome and close enough to explore the historical centre.
Our room was large, comfortable and quiet, with a good bathroom.The only downside was that our room did not have a kettle and we were initially told by a concierge that we could not have one without being upgraded to a superior room. However, we asked again (to more approachable staff) and a kettle was provided.
The breakfasts were excellent with a great and plentiful selection The bar was good too, although, like most of Rome, expensive.
The staff were very friendly (apart from the one concierge!) and helpful and polite.
A late checkout time at noon was useful and we would stay there again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Our room was on the third floor, overlooking the front street. Despite this it was quiet. (There is...

What a great hotel. We were struggling with our luggage outside when we got out of the taxi and the staff from dei Mellini were out in a flash to take our luggage from us and ushered us to reception to seamlessly check in. We were given great guidance on what to do and where to go.
We only made one mistake in Rome and that was going on a Green line tour. See review of green line tours, avoid them. We didn't realise how close we were to all the attractions that Rome has to offer until we grabbed the map, put on the walking shoes and hit the footpath. Around every corner in Rome is something to see. The hotel is very centrally located, close to Vatican and over the river and a few blocks to colosseum and other attractions.
Breakfast was good and staff friendly, rooms clean.
The hotel gave us a recommendation for dinner, Ambasciata di Capri. Best meal we had in Italy. See review.

We are sorry that you didn't like the Green line tour, we actually never had problems with them. I hope you will come back same day so we can arrange for you an amazing walking tour with a private guide who will take you where usually people don't go a lot, a tour to discover the secrets of 2013 years of Rome.
