The Gran Melia Rome is a luxury Rome hotel located on the banks of the River Tiber, near Vatican City. St Peter’s Basilica in the heart of Vatican City is an 8-minute walk from the hotel. The Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums are 20 minutes away on foot. If you cross the river, the Pantheon can be reached in 11 minutes by car or by taking a 13-minute bus ride. The Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps are all less than 20 minutes away by car or less than 25 minutes by public transport. This 5-star central-Rome hotel is also 14 minutes’ walk from the Orto Botanico – a beautiful botanical garden featuring over 3000 plant species, including a Japanese garden and tranquil bamboo groves. The hotel is also a 16-minute walk from the lively pubs, restaurants and nightlife of the famous Trastevere area.


 

The Gran Melia Rome is housed in the historical Villa Agrippina, which once belonged to the mother of Emperor Nero. Exhibitions showcasing ancient artefacts discovered on the site during the hotel’s construction are on display in museums throughout the city. Guests are greeted with a magnificent marble sculpture of the head of Agrippina in the hotel’s reception. The hotel has a light and airy feel throughout, with large windows providing natural light and spectacular views of the city. Guests can enjoy time in the relaxing spa, which features a private steam bath, sauna, a Turkish bath, sensorial showers and a relaxation area. Private yoga lessons or personal training sessions are also available. The hotel has several pools and gardens. You can sip a cocktail in the Liquid Garden, the bar surrounding the hotel’s outdoor pool, located in an aromatic orange grove. Guests can enjoy a delicious free continental breakfast each morning, and afternoon tea in The Library—the hotel’s martini and champagne bar. Dining options include the casual Nectar bar and restaurant or the prestigious VivaVoce restaurant, featuring Mediterranean cuisine by renowned chef, Alfonso Laccarino.
