Gran Meliá Rome
Via del Gianicolo, 3
First reviewed by Dirk
The staff at Gran Melia consistently impresses. Well trained, professional, and always friendly.The location is great for tourists wanting to visit the Vatican City, somewhat less so for those focusing their visit on antique and "downtown Rome". That being said Rome has been broadly walkable in our experience, so it is all relative.For those less mobile, the hotel offers a shuttle service to the Ara Pacis hourly during the day.The open showers are a great wrinkle, but perhaps not everyone's cup of tea.
The hotel was much better that it appeared in the photos and the public spaces were amazing.
