  • 8,0.Very good

    Distance to amenities and major tourists attractions was excellent. Had a lovley comfortable apartment for family of four. Though apartment was comfortable and big, one disadvantage was that it was few 'doors' away from the main building in a block of similar flats/apartments - i assume most of these were privately owned. Our apartment was on 2nd floor. To enter block, we had to first access 2 long flights of steps . Then 4 more longish flights of steps to get to actual apartment. During whole 5 nights of our stay, the lift was out of work. Every morning had to climb down all those stairs with two children in tow to walk over to main hotel for breakfast. Then climb back up. Then climb down again when going out on excursions. Then climb back up once headed back after day out sight seeing. Then climb back down to go out for dinner. Then back up after dinner! While the exercise was great, it got bit annoying at times after a hard day out trekking and with two tired and grumpy kids! Husband had bad back (sciatica) and all the stair climbing did him no good. It was especially unpleasant for him and annoying for us both when, upon checking out on our last morning, we had to both hold on to and drag a large heavy suitcase down all those very many steps, with kids in tow, and finally wheel it over to the main building. That was very painful for my husband with his bad back. Being 'housed' away from main hotel, we felt very cut off from its staff and its environment.

    Mecenate is such a lovely hotel! It seems like going back in time, a time where everything was made with quality materials and refined taste (mostly art nouveaux taste!). The breakfast terrace has an amazing view of the city which I never tired of during my stay, and the location is very convenient. We walked everywhere!

    All staff are welcoming, cleanliness and service is excellent. Room (standard double) small but adequate. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace is a great way to start your day, fantastic views. Sky Bar great for viewing Rome at night (drink prices excessive), lobby bar with outdoor seating lovely to sit and rest after a day sightseeing. Hotel opposite the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore and walking distance to most must see sights, the main Termini train/metro station a few minutes walk away. This was my second visit to the hotel and would definitely recommend a stay here.

    this was our second stay at mecenate palace. we were disappointed that our room was in the annex which was actually down the block from the actual hotel. it was also quite a fight of stairs (not for people with mobility issues) we also experienced a broken jacuzzi. with that being said, the room was lovely, and you can't get a better breakfast anywhere. when booking clarify that you would like to stay in the main hotel.
