“Just Perfect to Explore Rome”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

I booked the Dei Mellini via British Airways as a weekend city break to Rome as a surprise birthday present for my partner. We arrived on very wet Rome evening in November. As we walked into the hotel we received a very warm welcome. We checked in a were given a map showing all the key attractions. When we saw the room the dark wet evening just melted away. From the hotel we were a 20 minute walk to the Vatican. Walking or taking a bus to the main attraction of Rome is so easy. The next day it rained which did not dampen our love of Rome. On returning to the hotel and the lovely room, it didn't really matter about the weather. Breakfast was full of variety and the staff were friendly too. The location of this hotel is perfect to enjoy Rome and everything it has to offer. We will return to Rome and the Dei Mellini Hotel. Thank you for assisting in making our visit to Rome so enjoyable.

How wonderful is what you telling us?
You're absolutely right, stay in a comfortable Hotel like Hotel dei Mellini, something that everyone writes in their reviews, it is the best way to not give relevance to small bad things that can happen during a trip (see bad weather).
In any case, as you said, Rome is really fascinating even when it rains.
Also, as everyone saying, our top location helps a lot.
It is very easy to reach all the main attractions and in the area is full of very nice and inexpensive restaurants where local people love to go.
Can't wait to have you again as our value guest.

Close to all of the major tourist stops - easy walk to the Vatican, Plaza Del Poppolo, Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps, shopping on Via Corsi, great restaurants, etc. The staff at the hotel was very accommodating - our room (106) overlooked the street but the street was quiet in the evenings and did not bother us. We also had room 107 which faced the courtyard. Breakfast was good, hotel/rooms were newly re-done and clean, etc. Free wifi was available in the lobby areas but not in the rooms - there is a fee for wifi in the rooms. One in our group left an important item behind in the hotel room, and the Francesca/ the front desk staff immediately took care of it for us; we could not have asked for more. Definitely recommend the Dei Mellini, and look forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: Some rooms face the street; request a room in the rear if this bothers you

great location and accommodations. Very friendly staff. The people here went above and beyond for us. We were booked for a week and decided to see Italy more and check out early. Dei mellini actually contacted orbitz and got our money back for the nights we didn't stay. I've never seen such amazing customer service. It was so nice having $800 in our pocket for the rest of our trip! Next time I go to rome I will stay at dei mellini for sure. Thanks so much!

We stayed three nights in September on the recommendation of our travel agent, she was right! The Del Mellini is a very nice hotel and very well located for walking to much of Rome. We hoofed it to the Vatican, the Spanish Steps and even Trestavere.

Very nice rooms and an excellent breakfast room and assortment of food. They had hot and cold available, eggs, bacon and a nice selection of pastries.

Our check in was a little disappointing as we arrived about 11 AM and were told no room could be available until 2 PM. We went out and walked about Rome as this was our arrival day in Italy. At 2:30 we returned to be told that they had a large cruise group just leave and the room would still be a while. We really wanted to change and clean up, but we did get into the room about 4 PM. The room was very nice, good furnishings and clean. We used the provided slippers for the balance of out trip and were grateful for them.

The only real disappointment was that internet service is expensive in rooms. While free in the lobby, this was the only hotel we found in Italy that charged 15 Euro for internet and upgraded television in the room.

We very much enjoyed this hotel and would stay again.

Dear Sir thank you very much for your kind review.
You are totally alright regarding our location, it is possible to walk almost everywhere.
thanks to valuable customer feedback, our real bosses we have increased our breakfast buffet through the years to suit all tastes.
We are terribly sorry to read that you got in the room at 04:00pm, at this time it isn't possible go back to events but really the only explanation can be that a large group of people has not left the room on time. The Others clients who are reading can confirm that we Always check-in people early in the morning.
Regarding the internet we provide free wifi in all the common areas or upon payment in the rooms, considere that Euro 15 is a package of 96 hours and it is possible to use 3 computers at the same time. Check our web site, there are a lot of offers where we include wi-fi in the entire building.
We really hope to have you again at the Hotel dei Mellini.
We wish you the best Christmas ever and an Happy new year.

Stayed there late November. It was a gift visit from daughters as I had never visited Rome.
The hotel is hidden away in a street a couple of streets from the river and within easy walking distance of restaurants, the Castle and the Vatican. The receptionist was very helpful with directions, maps and suggestions for eating places. There was an offer to take our luggage up but there was no need. We were given an electronic card to open up. The same card is used to make .tthe lights stay on and one must push this into a slot and take it with you on leaving. My single room was spacious and clean and suitably warm. There was a spare blanket. I didn't use the TV or internet keyboard, finding them confusing. Breakfast was adequate in a small brightly lit dining room. Other meals are not served but it is possible to get a snack served in the bar, where I had a local dish.
I can recommend the hotel for is cleanliness and friendliness and convenience to the main tourist sites. One can pick up a tour bus at the end of the street. I would certain use this hotel again if my coin in the fountain means that I will return to Rome one day

Room Tip: I did work out how I might get out in case of fire !

A lovely hotel in a central position from which it is an easy walk to the major sites. It is situated on a quiet street very close to the river, and our lovely large room overlooked the street but was very quiet. The staff were very helpful and offered restaurant recommendations which proved to be excellent. WIFI is free in the public areas.
The airport shuttle bus stops at the Piazza Cavour, which is just a few minutes walk from the hotel, and only costs 6 euros. The only minor disappointment for us would be that breakfast although perfectly adequate is uninspiring and for a hotel of this quality we expected something rather more interesting! However the breakfast room is charming and the waiting staff very efficient.

Thank you very much!
True, the Hotel location is perfect, easy to walk to the major sites and far for the traffic noise.
As you said our Concierge can make dinner reservation advising the best restaurants of the city, but also guided tours, ticketing, transportation etc.
The breakfast room was totally renovated two years ago and our buffet had been increased a lot trying to satisfy customers from every where, but thank you for your kind note, we will try to make it even better.
Waiting for you to come back.
Best regards.
