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.
