Excellent breakfast and great location.

Great hotel within walking distance of the ancient city. Located only 4 or 5 blocks from the main train/bus station and one block from a hop on/ hop off bus stop. We were three people and were given a room in the executive section of the hotel - a separate building two doors down, up one flight of stairs and just off a charming courtyard. Our room had two single beds and a pullout sofa bed, large bathroom with jacuzzi tub, table , fridge and dishwasher (!) Perhaps this section had once been apartments . Buffet Breakfast was included and featured a large selection of pastries, cold meats, fresh fruits, cheeses, quiche, and cereals . This was all served in their beautiful rooftop restaurant with a wonderful view of the city. Personnel at the front desk were extremely helpful and accommodating . I would happily return to this hotel.

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.

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.

Very Nice Hotel

Our six-night stay at the Mecenate Palace Hotel was very pleasant. Clean, comfortable, and elegant. It is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from Termini train and Metro station. The staff was friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was available and reliable, unlike some other hotels we experienced during our trip to Italy. Mecenate's breakfasts were typical European and excellent. We would definitely consider staying at this hotel again and recommending it to others.
