Gran Meliá Rome

Located right on the banks of the River Tiber, Gran Meliá Rome is one of the most beautiful hotels in the Eternal City, nestled just a couple of minutes away from famous sights such as the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica, or the charming Piazza Navona. Don’t worry, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, or the superb Trevi Fountain, are also in the vicinity, so you’ll probably discover Rome’s amazing history and culture by foot.

With so many renowned attractions close by, resting in one of the hotel’s beautifully decorated rooms seems to be almost impossible, but you’ll just love to come back here after a long day in Rome. The hotel itself is a real heaven of peace and luxury, immersed in a green area that looks like a small park, and built on the site of the historic Villa Agrippina, which used to be home to the famous mother of Emperor Nero.

Every single room from the hotel offers amazing views, either to the Vatican, the imposing Castel Sant’Angelo or the hotel’s lovely gardens, and the elegant interiors seem to balance out the mesmerizing historic surroundings, with a sophisticated and modern touch.

Gran Meliá Rome’s on-site spa is called My Blend by Clarins, and it features a wonderful vitality pool, with saunas, Scottish or tropical showers, a Turkish bath and comfortable lounges, that will probably make the whole experience here unforgettable. There’s also a massive swimming pool outside, set in the charming gardens, and complete with a hydromassage pool.
