The Mecenate Palace Hotel in Rome offers 4-star luxury accommodations in an authentic 19th century Palazzo, styled with floral decor, Neo-Classical pillars, and curved marble staircases perfect for dashing down in an elegant gown.

Neighborhood
Situated within shouting distance of the Colosseum and the Forum, the Mecenate Palace Hotel overlooks the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. Surrounded by old Roman streets and charming piazzas, the hotel sits in the Rione Monti neighborhood, within easy walking distance of many of the Eternal City's most important sites. Rail transport can be found nearby at Rome Termini Station, with Cavour and Vittorio Emanuele Underground stops also nearby if you’ve already done enough walking for the day.
Hints and tips
Although the hotel's double glazing is good, rooms at the back of the hotel overlook an internal courtyard and tend to be the quietest. However, given the chance to see the 14th century bell tower of Santa Maria Maggiore right out the window, most guests prefer a front-facing room.As well as traditional hotel rooms, the Mecenate also offers a number of self-contained apartments with kitchenettes in a much more contemporary design, and opulent suites with in-room Jacuzzis are another exceptional option.

Very Nice

Location was very good - walked about 6 blks. to Coliseum, places to eat all around; great hotel breakfast buffet on terrace; room clean and comfortable, but not very big (like most of Europe's rooms). No complaints. Enjoyed.

Great staff

The staff there was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was outstanding. The location was very good, some local shops, convenient to Termini (main bus, metro, & train station) so it was super easy to go places. Great gellato place right outside the front door. Would definitely stay there again.

Roof top heaven

Just returned from 6 glorious nights in Roma!! Hotel Mecenate Palace was just superb. Upgraded to a suite on floor 5A. Just perfect and the air worked very well!!! Claudio, Roberto and Max were ever so helpful... Recommended delicious restaurants in the area, (Nueova Stella and Cecio ) helped me find a wheel chair and just plain wonderful gentlemen!!! The gelato stand next door is a bargain! 3 scoops 2,80E. Tried 3 new flavors each day. Having a belli on the rooftop each night was such a treat. Remember to buy your drinks downstairs for Happy Hour Prices and then climb 30 steps to the beautiful rooftop. Breakfast was classic European. They did have fresh fruits. Some reviews say otherwise. Watermelon and yellow plums everyday. Area safe but not the greatest in Roma. You can walk to the Termini but no shopping. That was really my one disappointment. Walking distance to most major attractions. Make sure you stop at the the beautiful church across the street. Loved listening to the bells every 15 min. A wonderful hotel! Will return!

Moderately Priced Gem in Rome

We stayed at the Mecenate Palace in Rome for two days prior to our European cruise. It is a very nice hotel in an excellent location, and relative to other four-star hotels in Rome was nicely priced. The rooms were small but clean - albeit the beds and pillows were a "bit" hard. One particularly nice feature is the rooftop restaurant and bar. Great place to end the day with a few cocktails while viewing the city and the sunset. Would definitely stay there again and would not hesitate recommending the Mecenate to friends etc.

There are a number of very nice reataurants within a 10-15 minute walk of the Mecenate. One of the fun parts of the evening was just walking around and checking out the menus of various establishments.

Ideal location for sightseeing Rome

When we got there and they gave us a room at the top of the hotel at the back we were a bit disappointed but our concern was misplaced. It was a lovely room and very quiet. The maid kept the room impecable. The breakfast dining room on the roof was wonderful with a beautiful view over Santa Maria Maggiore Piazza. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. Only 8 minutes from Rome Termini, it made it perfect for getting to the 'sights'. We would recommend it and would return.
