Excellent location in Rome

Nice well located hotel in Rome, we'll placed for both city centre attractions and the Vatican. Beds a bit firm for our taste but rooms spotlessly clean. Good continental breakfast with plenty of choice. Although free Wi-fi is available in public areas there is an extra charge to use it in your room - a little exploiting considering the room rate.....

Short break in Rome

Extremely well maintained and tastefully stylish hotel in a great location within walking distance of most major attractions. Very friendly and helpful staff who offered recommendations and great advice. We had a fabulous weekend and walked our legs off but managed to see most major attractions. We will definitely return if only to relax and enjoy the city

Great service, clean beautiful big rooms! Wonderful location in the heart of Rome with killer gelato not too far! Bell men and front desk clerks were very accomodating with tour and restaurant recommendations as well.

Christmas in Roma

4 out of 5
by from Napoli

Pros: A very clean and neat establishment, and the staff certainly took pride in their hotel.
Cons: WiFi was sketchy at times. This was further compounded in that cellular data was extremely weak to non-existent throughout most of the hotel.
Location: If you are not afraid to walk (and that is really the only way to see Roma), there is plenty to experience.
My wife and I spent our Christmas vacation in Roma near Vatican City. The hotel was about a 15-20 minute walk away from the Vatican, but there was plenty to see along the way. We were presented with complimentary prosecco and fruit basket, and on Christmas day a small present of Christmas cake and chocolate. This may have been because we were Expedia Gold members and this is a VIP hotel, but the touches were extremely nice.

Pros: Location was great, nothing too much trouble.
Cons: Drinks from the bar are pricey!
Location: Near to the Vatican, Castel Sant Angelo, Trevi fountain and Pantheon
A really nice hotel with a perfect central location, meaning that we could walk virtually everywhere. Very clean and all the staff were really helpful, they all spoke good English.

The Hotel Dei Mellini is perfectly located for reaching all parts of Rome. We had a fantastic room that was an upgrade from the one we had booked, free of charge, and one of only two front rooms with a balcony. The staff were amazing from the second we walked in to the moment we left. There were no faults. I would stay here again in a heartbeat when back in Rome.
