Elegant 19th-century palazzo between the Vatican and the Spanish Steps, with a roof garden and a private art collection
On the banks of the Tiber, within walking distance of the Vatican and the Spanish Steps, Hotel dei Mellini is an elegant sleep in a 19th-century palazzo. Brightly colored fabrics and modern velvet armchairs complement traditional dark wood furnishings in the guestrooms, while the hotel's own art collection is on display throughout. Purple walls provide a fun feature in the Italian marble bathrooms. Breakfast is served in a dining room overlooking a courtyard, but the property's crowning glory is the sunny roof garden, where you'll find loungers, colorful potted plants and views of Roman rooftops.
In the Area
The hotel is within a 15-minute walk of both the Spanish Steps and the Vatican — the world's smallest country and home to the awe-inspiring Sistine Chapel. The area around Hotel dei Mellini is great for strolling; foodies should make a beeline for popular eatery E Cucina Roma, which serves local dishes including tasty vegetarian options. Across the Tiber River, stroll down the picturesque Via di Ripetta before heading into the ancient cobblestone streets of the Centro Storico, where you'll find quaint coffee shops and traditional boutiques. Don't miss a trip to the Trevi Fountain for that all-important holiday snap. The hotel is just a few blocks from the Lepanto metro station, which makes it easy to explore farther afield.
