The room rate was competitive, it was what you might want to experience in a true small Rome hotel ambiance, and fairly close to forum/coliseum area and could easily be walked. A bit too far to walk to Vatican. Neighborhood was more pleasant than expected. The staff was willing to call taxis and they arrived within 3-5 minutes typically. The included breakfast was a big benefit and the staff at breakfast was very pleasant. The restaurant staff at diinner not so much.
Staff at night-time in restaurant were a bit rude to us. It should be noted that the elevator does not go all the way up to the rooftop restaurant.
The location was very good, central and easy to get to all the main attractions. We used taxis and there was a taxi stand very near. The rooftop terrace was stunning. Breakfast here was a real delight. The bathroom was very spacious, clean and decorated in good taste. Coffee and tea making facilities were appreciated. Comfortable bed. Traditional, charming decor. Staff pleasant and helpful.
The lift was small but it worked. The final sets of stairs to the restaurant were more than expected.( four sets of at least 6 steps - that's equivalent to two floors in an average house) This might prove to be too much for some people with a disability.
The hotel is near the cathedral,10 walking minutes to termini station. Breakfast is good and lots of choice,especially roof garden
The hotel is has moderate sized rooms. It is definitely a boutique hotel and the rooms have a rustic feel to them. However, the bathrooms were very modern and clean. The bed was comfortable and the staff was very kind and approachable. The rooftop is beautiful. We spent our late nights up there and it just made you feel like your were in Europe. Right in the heart. The breeze, the view and the drinks are really good! You get a small discount when you are a guest of the hotel. We did not eat at the hotel because there is a cafe/restaurant literally next door on the corner of the beautiful pillar and church in front of the hotel. The location of the hotel is impeccable. We used the train every single day and it was so nice to walk less than 10 min. We felt completely safe - even when we arrived in Rome to the hotel at midnight and had dinner at 12:30 at that cafe mentioned above. Overall, great staff, clean rooms (and bathroom), great service and a beautiful rooftop (and good bar service) to top it all off. We highly recommend the hotel.
The location was close to major city landmarks. There was a bus available that stopped right by the hotel (for 7 euros for 24 hours) and it could be used to take the bus around the city. The room was clean and had adequate space, and the air conditioning worked well. The roof garden offered a beautiful view of the city. Breakfast was good, and it included eggs, meats, fruit, breads, pastries, coffee, tea, juices, etc. The airport shuttle was 55 euros for two people, and this was a good price for transport to the Fiumicino Airport without worries. There is also an ATM right across the street from the hotel.
It was not mentioned that some of the rooms are in the annex; that is a separate area near the hotel that you cannot access through the main lobby. It was a little inconvenient, especially in the evening, to have to walk along the street to get to the main hotel and restaurant. I would have liked to have known about this ahead of time. This area does not have an elevator, but the hotel did provide someone to take the luggage upstairs. The only other minus was that one morning we were unable to get any hot water for showers, even after letting the water run for a long time. This did not seem to be a problem in the evenings.
With a stay at Mecenate Palace, you'll be centrally located in Rome, steps from Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore and 7 minutes by foot from Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. Featured amenities include a business center, limo/town car service, and complimentary newspapers in the lobby. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a cruise ship terminal shuttle.
