Hotel Dei Mellini is an 80-room boutique in a peaceful neighborhood near the Vatican. Set in a charming 19th-century building, this modern hotel features nice decorative touches such as ornate mirrors and an interesting art collection. The spacious rooms -- classic, deluxe, and suite size -- have flat-screen TVs, minibars, and big marble bathrooms. With lots of natural light, dramatic drapes, and pops of warm color, rooms are stylish and appealing; some have Juliette balconies (which are really just balcony railings, with no room to stand). Breakfast is on offer daily in a lovely breakfast room, and a cozy lounge serves drinks and snacks throughout the day. During warmer months, cappuccino or cocktails are available on the rooftop terrace with panoramic views of Rome. The hotel has a fitness center, an uncommon feature in Rome, but there's a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.
A quiet location across the Tiber River, near the Vatican
Hotel Dei Mellini is situated along the Tiber River in the Prati district, near the Vatican. Across the river lies the medieval heart of the city with its winding alleyways, piazzas, cathedrals, and fountains. For more local flavor, guests can walk along the Tiber to get to the charming neighborhood of Trastevere, which is packed with bars, restaurants, and cafes (popular with expats and students). Most major sights are a bit of a trek from here, however. Other areas of Rome, including the two airports, can be accessed through taxi service or public transportation. There is a bus stop and metro stop within walking distance of the hotel.
