“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Very beautiful, comfortable and relaxing hotel situated in an excellent location next to the vatican. Very friendly staff.
I would have wished the hotel pool to be heated...this would have made the experience perfect.

Beautiful hotel, with fabulous rooms.
Great service.
Wonderful bar & restaurant, with a decent breakfast selection.
We stayed in January so were unable to take advantage of outdoor pool & facilities.
We didn't use the spa, but would definitely take time out there on a future visit.
Perfect hotel for a trip to Rome. Highly recommend it & will be going back.

Stayed at Gran Melia Resort end of May 2014, to celebrate wedding anniversary. Had a very easy and simple check-in process, and the room was large and spacious. Outdoor pool was lovely and not overcrowded. Same with hotel spa facilities - cost a little on the steep side spa treatments, and even have to pay for access to spa area if you wish to use. but was totally relaxing and not over crowded. Breakfast was very good with alot of variety. Staff very friendly, and they even brought us choc strawberries n bottle of bubbly on our first night as they knew we were there to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary.
Rooms are well equipped with fridge, plenty of cupboards to store away clothes and bags. Complimentary bottle of water daily in the room with turn-down service. Only thing that wasn't available in room was iron (due to health & safety reasons), so pack prepared for this. Huge beds, and they even have a selection of pillows that you can choose from, depending on the type of firmness you prefer.
Hotel is ideally located, and walking distance to all main sites. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

When you read the reviews for this hotel you almost think they sound too good to be true, but trust me this really is one of the best hotels you could choose anyway in the world.
The location is perfect for exlporing all the sites in Rome, the Vatican is about 5 minutes walk up the road.

The rooms are wonderfully luxurious, we had a suite which had a sofabed in the lounge area for my daughter which gave both us and her a bit of space a privacy. The bathrooms are stunning, fantastic all over body shower and a huge bath tub.

What sets this hotel apart is the staff, everyone is extremely friendly, but unlike a hotel of hotels at this one the friendliness is genuine. Nothing was too much trouble and there was always someone there to deal with our needs and requests instantly.

We opted for the Red Level Service and this was definitely worth it. You get your own Red Level Lounge with drinks etc. in the evenings. My only dissapointment was the fact that the snacks provided were not in keeping with the standard of the rest of the hotel and not as good as we've experienced at other hotels offering a similar service. Minor point though in the scheme of things.

Another great feature of the hotel is the wonderful outdoor pool - after a hard day walking around the city a long dip was very welcome!

If you stay at the hotel I highly reccomend you dine one evening in Viva Voce - the tasting menu is exceptional to say the least. On a par with any Michelin star level restaurant in London.

Thank you to all the staff for making this family holiday one we'll remember for a long time to come.

We'll definitely be coming back!!

Room Tip: We recommend the junior suite red level for families or those wanting a bit more space.

We came here for my mum's 70th birthday for 4 days! We were a party of 10, 6 adults and 4 children. The hotel property is beautiful it is located centrally and the concierge was very helpful in all recommendations. We had the red level service and there were free flowing drinks and food for all from 12-9 pm... Great for the kids! The rooms were clean and had a modern contempory feel.. The beds were very comfortable! The breakfast was extensive .. Try the eggs Benedict!! Delicious! All staff were very accommodating and helpful especially Samuel. The pool area is stunning!!! We loved it!!!!
The only one thing that we could find that could be improved is the wi fi... You have to log in every time instead of it connecting automatically! Otherwise it's been a luxurious, comfortable and exceptional stay!!! Thank you

Stayed at Gran Melia Rome for 5 nights for our 1st Wedding Anniversary holiday. Didn't let us down. Great location, walking distance from all of Romes sites. Relaxed & peaceful. Staff very friendly. Has outdoor pool & spa. Rooms very nice but only negative has no iron. Breakfast was good. Extras pricey but not needed. Highly recommended.

We stayed at this hotel in late September/early October. The overall experience was wonderful! It was an oasis in the middle of a very busy city. Staff were wonderfully helpful and pleasant at all times of the day and night. Breakfast was great, we ate dinner there several times and the food and service was wonderful. I was especially impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel (rooms, restaurant, grounds). It made my trip to Rome the best trip I have ever experienced and I hope that some day we will have the opportunity to stay there again!

Room Tip: Rooms were quite small, however so are many homes in the city! We stayed on the first floor (one bel...
