All in all this was agreat hotel with some fantastic amenities. The pool, the bar and the reception all stood out as excellent, with the staff in all three very good. The restaurant was okay, but didn't have a great offering for children (although the bar did). However, the housekeeping did let things down slightly. On our arrival the room hadn't been made up, and the cleaning of the room was a bit hit and miss during the week. On three separate ocassions during the week housekeeping staff barged into the room without a knock - albeit they were very apolgetic each time. The room itself was a bit tired and in need of a refresh, but the public areas of the hotel were lovely, and there wasn't anything wrong with the room as such. Overall this was a lovely stay in a nice hotel, with just a couple of minor quibbles. We would certainly stay again.
Loved this hotel. Really nice, great breakfast, nice comfortable room, safe. Awesome grounds. Hotel staff were EXCELLENT!! (except bar person - she was a bit snotty) but everyone else was great. The only real issue we had was with the bathroom, it smelled a bit, the longer we stayed there the worse it got. It was our own fault for not reporting it but in our defense, we were out of the hotel from morning to night. You noticed it everytime you used the loo though. My sister thought it smelled of urine, she thought in the drain perhaps. But please don't let this deter you, it was a very nice hotel. If your loo smells get them to fix it right away or change rooms.
I would definitely stay here again.
Oh, one more thing, it was a bit far out. We had to take a taxi everywhere, it got costly after awhile but still, it was a great hotel.
Lovely hotel, clean, good facilities. Buffet breakfast fabulous and plenty of it. Restaurant good, a little pricey but Rome generally is! Pool clean, few more sunbeds wouldn't go a miss. 15 - 20 minute bus ride into the city, easy to use bus system and cheap. Would recommend and use again.
The hotel was lovely and welcoming. The room was clean, however we asked for a double bed and got one with two single beds pushed together, which was a little annoying to sleep in. We went in April and the patio is amazing, with a swimming pool that must be lovely in summer (it was drained during our holiday). Most of the staff was lovely. Location is great, Cornelia Metro is close by, great for links to central rome and main tourist attractions. Would definitely recommend for a short city break stay.

It was lovely staying at Melia. The facilities were great and the shuttle bus service meant you could get to the city centre easily. The shop inside the hotel was handy. The staff very helpful (except one male receptionist ). Alot to eat for breakfast and a calm atmosphere.
I will recommend this hotel to anyone.
It was a very nice hotel. The staff is very helpful, kind and they know and understand English very well. There is a smart TV in the room.
But it's location is far from the airport and hard to find its name on the building. That the hotel is in the vicinity of Vatican is the only advantage of its location.
Encompassing in its folds part of the area next to the Vatican, the Aurelio neighborhood is known for being a residential haven away from the hustle and bustle of central Rome while still being connected to the heart of the city. The area's traditional restaurants, local shops, and neighborhood cafés bordering the piazzas make it the perfect place for an evening stroll.
