“Excellent Hotel (and staff)”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Fantastic hotel in a great area overlooking Rome. 5 mins walk to the vatican and 5-10mins and your over the river and into Rome its self. Turn left out of the hotel and you are into a great wooded park overlooking the city with great views. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only issue was price of drinks and food which were very expensive. Also gym very small. Little gripes but in saying that i still give the hotel a 5 as it was brilliant overall.

don't go to dinner in liquid restaurant. its better to go to town. the breakfast is average. the location is excellent, the service is excellent. the rooms are good.
the best is the pool area. and you are in a few minutes by foot in vatican, old town and trastevere.

The quality of this hotel is second to none, their attention to detail is also excellent. Really loved our 6 day stay here. The room was amazing (309) and so was the pool area. Location to everything is great as it is all walkable from this hotel. The food is expensive and so is the drink but there are plenty of shops and restaurants near by if you are staying on a lower budget and want to see Rome more. Overall I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.

We spent a lovely 5 days at the Gran Melia. The attention and care was impeccable. The professionalism of the staff and the red level personalised service added hugely to our enjoyment. We had a busy yet relaxing holiday and this was due to the lovely swimming pool and the proximity of the hotel to major sights.
If you want culture and luxury, this is the place to stay.

Gran Melia is by far the best hotel. From the atmosphere, food, service and employees, there isn't anything they won't do for you. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave the staff's goal is ensure your stay is utterly enjoyable. My family and I cannot wait to return to Gran Melia!

The best service we've ever experienced. We stayed in a junior suite and were treated like royalty. Rose petals laid in patterns in the room, champagne, lavish fruit bowls, strawberries dipped in chocolate etc. We loved the option to request your room to be given a smell from the scent menu. Having complimented the staff on the orange blossom we chose, when we returned to our room there was a gift on the bed for a bottle of the same scent to take home. Our view of the Vatican was very special. It was quite something to sit in the spa and hear the Vatican bells ringing. Breakfast was lavish, and the restaurant options provided a wide range of choice and pricing.
The staff were so attentive, and it seemed like the hotel only employ the most beautiful people! as well as people who can make you feel special in a very genuine way.

Room Tip: At the moment it's best to request a garden/Vatican view due to some building work impacting the...
