Great location and accommodating staff!

It was my first time in Rome and I was very pleased with both the location and staff at Hotel dei Mellini. I took my son for his High School graduation and asked the staff if they could decorate the room as a surprise. They did an amazing job decorating and I'm grateful they made him feel very special on our very first night in Rome. The staff also gave helpful hints and directions to places, restaurants and even recommended a hairdresser for me! They were always very pleasant, warm and accommodating to my needs, even when I requested taxis at the last minute when I didn't feel like walking.
The location of the hotel was great, a 5 minute walk to Ponte Cavour and you're in the middle of everything: the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, etc... If you choose not to cross any bridges, you can walk to Castle St. Angelo and the Vatican City. The hotel was close to all these places yet situated in a quiet place, away from the noisy streets.
The room was spacious and very clean with modern amenities. We stayed on the 6th floor and had a small balcony where I would eat breakfast some mornings and dessert late at night... a wonderful place to soak the Roman experience all in.
I plan to go back to Rome and would definitely do a repeat of this hotel.
