The Hotel has an excellent Location in Walking distance to the Vatican, Trastevere and the Inner City. The rooms are quiet and beautifully furnished. Service and team is excellent.

Quality of Food is outstanding - service in the Restaurant superb.

If you like the style and ambience of Park Hyatt or Ritz Carlton, then you will like this - it is in their price range. We stayed in a junior suite on the Red Level - it was comfortable for 2 people - but beware that space is at a premium in Rome. Red Level gets you great concierge service, and includes most amenities (gym, spa, breakfast, club lounge with free drinks & food) - would definitely recommend opting for that. Also recommend using their airport transfer service (extra cost) which just takes all the hassle out of the arrival & departure.
Location is great - vatican is 15 minute walk - most everything else is within 30 minutes walk - yet the hotel feels secluded within its nice grounds so you can get away from the bustle and crowds.
We ate dinner in the restaurant once and it was good - we chose to sample nearby restaurants in the old city - a pleasant walk before and after dinner - with some great places to eat.

A new hotel built in up on a hill in an old monastery. It is located across the street from the Vatican wall. In just 2 blocks your are standing in front of St. Peters Square and if you like to walk, (approx. 20-30 min)it is within walking distance to all major sites of Rome. It has very lovely setting and a very modern ambiance. Breakfast has a fantastic spread and the kitchen staff will do their best to accommodate any special requests. As it is new, a few details need to be worked out from the staff in regards to customer service. A note about the rooms. All are a bit different from each other due to the hotel lay out. If you are really wishing for a room with a view, these rooms are limited to the top suites with a very heafty prices, or the lower rooms starting on 5th floor only on the busy street side of the building. All other rooms look toward the inner courtyard or towards the building next door. Spa is only available if you pay for it.

Room Tip: Good luck, no real views of city, and those that do have one are noisy on the street side or overloo...

Dear Guest,

thank you for sharing your experience at Gran Meliá Rome Villa Agrippina.

While glad to learn that you appreciated your overall stay with us, I am afraid about your notes as to the rooms.

Our historical property offers a range of different room categories, which are all different from themselves, due to the building layout, like you mentioned.
According to our Guests' needs and length of each stay, the majority of the rooms offer a view: overlooking the Eternal City, from the top suites and other lower categories located on different floors, and others showing our big park with the St. Peter’s Dome.

Since we do take the comfort of our guests very seriously, aiming to turn each stay into pleasant experiences, we do regret to learn that your room was not meeting your expectations according to its view, and we hope to have the chance of proposing you the most suitable room category for you, at the occasion of your next visit.

At this regard, please do not hesitate to contact me directly in order to personally take care of all the details and let you live a perfect experience.

Looking forward to welcoming you back soon in the heart of timeless Rome…

Kindest Regards,

Maria Ansalone

From the first moment when the butler opened our taxi door and took our cases to when he waved us goodbye I have never experienced hospitality or comfort like it. Very Friendly staff, most comfortable bed ever, luxury treats in our room each night, tranquil and very clean hotel and gardens. I could go on and on with the positives but cannot find any negatives. If you want to be treated like royalty and have a relaxing and enjoyable stay then you have to come here. Thought of one:- the hill up to the hotel but hey after all the delicious italian food you will be eating a bit of exercise is good!!

We were on RedLevel #608. Aside from the non view out windows the stay was perfect. Staff from welcome, to desk, concierge, food and Bev., housekeeping were perfect. Twenty minute walk to St. Peter's square. Rest. Recommendations perfect and finally, cabs arrive always within four minutes. If you want modern , clean, attentive accommodations, great choice.
