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.

Excellent in every way

On arrival I was told by the very friendly receptionist that we had been allocated apartment rooms, but he would check as there had been some cancellations. We were upgraded to deluxe rooms on the 5th floor with a view of Santa Maria Maggiore. Rooms were very well furnished, good size, clean and the view was as promised, quite stunning. Location is good. You could walk to most places but we used the metro due to the cold and snow.Termini is a short walk or Victorio Emanuele even shorter and straight forward. Breakfast was excellent. No hot food, but I don't expect that in Italy. Bread was fresh and good quality, also salamis, ham, cheese, cakes, pastries etc... Selection was different on each of the two days, which would be a definite plus if staying longer. All the staff were friendly and helpful and those that needed to spoke good English. Only negative was we had to pay (5 Euros per 24 hours) for wi-fi but I'm still surprised we got this good an hotel for the price we paid (even without the room upgrade) so I'm not complaining!

Try Trattoria Vecchia Roma. It's had mixed reviews elsewhere, but we had a good (late) lunch there for a reasonable price.

very nice staff

It's near Ternini so great to get around. Area is good though a little grungy looking in "China town " to the east. Breakfast included in the room was great. The atmosphere is a charming modernization of a 19th century palazo. Excellent staff.

Excellent location, very comfortable!

We stayed here for a week between Christmas and New Year's Day and were very pleased. The hotel is close to a taxi stand, the train station and many good restaurants. Our room was clean and large enough for us. The front desk staff was EXTREMELY helpful--going above and beyond to help us find our way around the public transportation system. Breakfast was delish, too--meats, cheeses, cereal, yogurt, fruit, etc. My only suggestion would be--if you are anything less than physically fit, make sure to get a room that gives you access to an elevator. We stayed in the "annex" which was lovely, but required two flights of stairs and three sets of keys to get from the street to our room.

Great hotel - great location!

My daughter and I travelled to Rome and stayed at the Mecenate Palace Hotel for five days. I highly recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The location was excellent -- right across the street from Santa Maria Maggiore, a few blocks from Termini Station, and easily accessible by foot, metro, or bus (including the hop on-hop off sightseeing buses) to all the key sites. The room was clean, safe, and actually pretty spacious. And, the breakfast buffet included in our hotel stay was a perfect way to start each day.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If you go to Rome at Christmastime, there are lots of things to do that are especially good with children. There's a city ice skating rink at the Castel Sant'Angelo. There's a display of 100 creches from around the world at the Piazza del Popolo. And, on New Year's Day, there are street performers at the Piazza del Popolo as well. We saw mimes and musicians. I heard there were acrobats, too. There's also a great Christmas market at the Piazza Navona, with carnival games, foods, toys and Christmas trinkets for sale, and a merry-go-round. There are fireworks over the Colisseum, but they will seem very limited if you are comparing them to American Fourth of July fireworks. But, people set off their own all over the place! We went to the Spanish Steps to see the fireworks and the people-watching was phenomenal! The Colisseum turns into a nightclub -- so great place to go; but not necessarily if you're with young kids.
