We were a little worried about this hotel for two reasons. Firstly because it has mixed reviews on TA and secondly, because it was inexpensive and we thought therefore there must be a catch Well were very happy! 18 of us stayed there for 3 nights and not one of the party had any complaints about Mecenate Palace. The rooms...

Read some fussy reviews on here, but I think that if you travel during crunch times at any destination, there will be problems. Hotel is close to Ancient Rome, train station, and tourist central. Breakfast was great, but if you are looking for a heart attack special of eggs and gravy, maybe not your thing. (the cheeses, ham, juices, pastries,...

We stayed at the Mecenate Palace for MLK weekend of 2008. I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay here. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, even though we clearly had managed to book this hotel far below the normal price. The room we were given was beautiful- really one of the prettiest, most...

We were recommended to this hotel by satisfied friends. We managed to negotiate a deal whereby we would be given an upgrade to a 'suite' if we stayed five nights. The deal included breakfast. We were given a small but very attractively appointed room with a wonderful view. The room was very comfortable, bath robes and slippers, two wash basins...

Just returned from Rome, staying in the Mecenate Palace, lovely hotel, handy for the main railway station, and the hop on open top tourist bus, was just over the road. We had tea and coffee in the bedroom, which is very rare. Lovely breakfast, in the 5th floor roof garden restaurant, which overlooked the sites of Rome.The gentlemen on reception...

We had two rooms at the Mercenate Placae in September 2007. The rooms were nicely furnished and comfortable, perhaps a little on the small side. The bathroom were excellent. My only complaint about the room is that the bed is made up of two twin beds pushed together, not uncommon in Europe, however, they also made up the bed as...

I woke in the morning to find that I'd been sleeping in blood-soaked sheets. Not my blood mind you... Nor my wife's. Not a little blood either. It was horrific.

We arrived to hotel by shuttle provided by Mecenate. The driver was waiting for us and easily got us to the hotel.

Since we are only staying one night in Rome, after a 4 nights stay in the Amalfi Coast, we had wanted a hotel near the Termini station. Having found this hotel from Frommers and after reading tripadvisor's ratings, finally selected the most expensive room in the hotel, the Virgilio suite. Upon arrival at the Termini, we had a rather stressful...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
