Oasis in the middle of the city!

Posted May 28, 2015
Pros: Great location. Beautiful grounds.
Cons: Our room was a little small, but that's to be expected in Europe. Also somethings were too high tech (light switches, etc).
We loved the hotel. It was so nice to come back to this tranquil setting after pounding the pavement in Rome.

Gran Melia

Posted May 27, 2015
Our stay at the Gran Melia was excellent. The welcome from the staff was second to non and the hotel itself was amazing.

Fantastic....but

Posted May 25, 2015
Pros: Location, style and comfort.
Cons: Remove all the extra charges and reduce the prices.
Location: Excellent location.
We picked this hotel for its location which proved to be the correct choice. The hotel was very peaceful, relaxing and a haven from the bustle after a busy day sightseeing. However, the public areas of the hotel lacked atmosphere and warmth. There was no desire to sit in the bar or communal areas as everything was TOO expensive. It would appear that not many other guests sat around in the evening either. Its nice to go out into the city but also enjoy the hotel on an evening. The cost of everything restricted that. 12 euros for a small bottle of Peroni is a joke. It would have been nice to sit with other guests and chat and relax a bit like all inclusive. OK its a city hotel but then to pay extra for the use of the Spa at 20 Euros a day just for a dip in the Spa pool is over the top. No tea in the room either unless you paid for it. We choice this hotel for the outdoor pool but the outdoor pool was freezing and I suspect it won't warm up until high summer. They should heat the pool during the Spring. I feel that they keep the outdoor pool cold so you pay to use the indoor pool.

Hotel proche du Vatican , superbe et tres bien ten

Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: La piscine , le bar lounge, l'emplacement, la navette pour arc necis
Cons: Les chambres deluxes simpkes sont un poil petites pour une personne pour un cinq étoile , a deux on doit se marcher dessus , c est la seule chose
Location: Tout est a proximité , le vatican, piazza navona , campo de fiori
Troisième fois que je descend dans cet hotel, séjour parfait encore une fois. Le personnel est tres prevenant et tres poli. Une bonne odeur flotte dans le batiment.

Très bel hôtel de luxe design

Posted May 20, 2015
Pros: La chambre ( prémium ) avec vue sur la coupole du Vatican, très belle déco . le bar en extérieur prés de la piscine permet de faire une pose .
Cons: La salle de bain est bien ..... MAIS ..... il n'y a pas de douche .....il faut enjamber la ( large ) baignoire ! Le petit déjeuner est moyen ...
Location: Calme , le centre est proche .
Nous avons passé 3 nuits dans cet hôtel , globalement nous avons été satisfait .Il est un peu excentré donc au calme , avec un jardin , piscine , tout en étant proche du Vatican ,où l'on va à pieds sans problème .

Nice hotel close to everything.

Posted May 18, 2015
Overall we enjoyed our stay; however, there were a couple of things that bothered us. First of all, we could hear our neighbors walking on the floor above. Also, it was pretty loud in the morning as they start cleaning the rooms early. Second, we saw better breakfast selections. Besides that, we were in the rush one day, and there were no eggs or yogurts. So we asked if we can get those items because we are late. They told us to wait. We asked how long? The server told us 3 minutes. It was 10-12 minutes at least. Not nice.. Last but not least, when we checked in, they told us that they upgraded our room. However, after I looked at what we actually booked, they downgraded our room since the room we got was with no view. And we booked a premium room with views. So would I stay at Gran Melia next time? I am not sure!

Beautiful but pool and hot tub closed our whole stay. We were bumped from our flight and landed late but we were still charged for transportation to hotel.

Tranquility away from the City.

Posted May 2, 2015
Pros: Superb contemporary decor. Beautiful garden, swimming pool, spa and gym facilities
Cons: -it is wrong marketing policy to restrict the use of a lounge / bar to guests unless they are " red Glove"!! - lunch . - concierge.
Location: Near the Vatican.
Very beautiful contemporary hotel in a gorgeous setting. 1- although a request on arrival for The Colosseum night tour was requested, the concierge couldn't manage to secure it . 2- there was no hot water in the shower/ bath, only luke warm. 3- we couldn't use the bar lounge for drinks as we were not "red glove guest". Wrog marketing policy. 4- the breakfast is delicious but lunch food not up to the hotel standard.

Nobles Hotel in Zentrumsnähe

Posted Apr 25, 2015
Pros: Außenanlage mit dem Swimmingpool
Cons: Beleuchtung und ein paar Haken im Bad
Location: Vatican in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen
Zimmer sind klein, Beleuchtung über Schreibtisch mangelhaft-obwohl sehr teure Beleuchtungs- und Schaltelemente, Bad sehr elegant - aber kaum Möglichkeiten Utensilien unterzubringen - Nagelin der Wnd wäre hilfreich, Frühstück exorbitant teuer!

Excellent hotel

Posted Apr 22, 2015
Pros: Service, food, room cleanliness
Cons: Would be nice to have some drawers to put things into which are not being hung up in the closet
Location: Perfect location. Within walking distance from Vatican
We loved this hotel! It is a true 5 star property! From the luxurious ultra modern rooms to excellent and attentive service, We stayed in the red level room and enjoyed all the perks that came with it such as free WiFi, free breakfast in the restaurant or in the room, snacks and drinks during the day, access to the spa, and wonderful concierge services. Every detail was thought through, even large umbrellas provided to guests on rainy days. I asked the concierge which places were open on Easter Sunday for us to explore, the next day we received a complete list neatly typed and delivered to our room. Now that's service! They even had a wonderful outdoor pool with very comfortable looking lounge chairs which unfortunately we didn't get to experience due to cool weather. In the summer I am sure it is a nice oasis on a hot day. Every night we found complimentary candy and pastries in our room. We felt very pampered during our stay, which is exactly how it should be on vacation. We will definetely be back for another stay.
