My husband and I visited the hotel for our second time in February 2015. The hotel is just wonderful, the service is exceptional and guests are treated like royalty. We ordered food to our room on our first night and the food was just delicious. We were also given a complimentary bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. The room... More

This hotel is very special. It is a five star experience from start to finish, yet the staff make the service they offer natural and unforced. Everyone from the porters outside to the reception staff treated the guests with genuine attentiveness. The room I stayed in was beautifully furnished with fabulous amenities. The housekeeping staff were amazingly unobtrusive - in... More

Just one word to describe this beautiful hotel...perfect! It is located in the city centre within walking distance of San Pietro. It is very impressive how they take care of the details in order to create an atmosphere warm and chic, mixing together the tradition of the past and the innovation of the future.

This is a beautiful hotel, with efficient staff and walking distance to the Vatican. A friend and I stayed here fromDecember 30, 2014 to January 1, 2015. The Concierge staff gave us a complete orientation of the city, hotel facilities and services available. It has a free shuttle to the center of Rome, whis is very convenient. The room was... More

This review is to praise the wonderful staff at Gran Melia. We were to attend midnight mass at the Vatican and booked this hotel as it was very near (less than 10 mins walk). It was also my big birthday after Christmas and decided to stay for new year as well. The hotel did wonderful touches to make it a... More

I love the spacious bedroom and bathroom with Clarins amenities. I love that it is within walking distance to the Vatican and it doesn't cost much to take a cab to the city area (the hotel provides shuttle bus service though). The staffs were really warm and sincere. They spoke good English too.

Located right next to the Vatican and a short walk to Piazza Navona this is a great location with some fabulous views over the Tiber river. The rooms are nice and spacious. However, the rooms do not have spare electrical sockets to charge devices and the touch pad for switching on/off lights and air-con is like NASA control systems. Waiting... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
