Neighborhood
Situated within shouting distance of the Colosseum and the Forum, the Mecenate Palace Hotel overlooks the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. Surrounded by old Roman streets and charming piazzas, the hotel sits in the Rione Monti neighborhood, within easy walking distance of many of the Eternal City's most important sites. Rail transport can be found nearby at Rome Termini Station, with Cavour and Vittorio Emanuele Underground stops also nearby if you’ve already done enough walking for the day.
Hints and tips
Although the hotel's double glazing is good, rooms at the back of the hotel overlook an internal courtyard and tend to be the quietest. However, given the chance to see the 14th century bell tower of Santa Maria Maggiore right out the window, most guests prefer a front-facing room.As well as traditional hotel rooms, the Mecenate also offers a number of self-contained apartments with kitchenettes in a much more contemporary design, and opulent suites with in-room Jacuzzis are another exceptional option.

Convenient & sensible

Convenient location, near Termini rail station, but not too near. Very helpful staff, enjoyable rooftop breakfast area. Dated, but decent decor.

Great location, Great Staff, Great Hotel

You never know quite what you are going to get with a small hotel in a foreign city, but this one was fabulous. The room was small, but not stifling, and I thought it was very comfortable and clean and was perfect for my needs, though I don't need a lot of space. The location is VERY convenient to the Termini train station, though it can be a little confusing trying to find the location, initially. And the restaurants in the area... phenomenal. The hotel itself has a lovely rooftop restaurant that also serves a very good breakfast. I was soooooooooooooooooo pleased with my stay there. Can't recommend it enough. However, just a reminder, that if you are staying within the walls of the city that the airport is a long trek away. Taking the train in and out of Termini is convenient and cost-effective, which is another plus for this location.

birthday getaway

Great hotel, only thing that would make it five stars is if the breakfasts were a little better, most things incurred an extra charge which was disapointing, but didnt spoil our stay.

Good hotel with character

The hotel is very close to the train station (less than 10 mins walk) which was important for us with baggage so we very fine with this. The neighborhood around the station isn't the best but the hotel has a fantastic view of the Santa Maria basilica. The common areas (in the pictures) are much grander and fancier than the actual rooms which could use some updating (at least the one we got) Overall it was a good experience. Staff was attentive and the breakfast was good. We had some drinks in the hotel lounges but never tried the dinner.

a lovely hotel

We had a great break based at this hotel The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean, but rather hot overnight. We had expected a double bed plus a single, as per e description, but found one double, and although we are very good friends of long standing, we're not that close. The staff subsequently changed it for us and all was well. The roof garden is lovely, and the breakfast typically continental and plenty of it.

Comfortable, friendly and well placed

A very friendly hotel and very well placed for the railway station and S.Maria Major. A comfortable room - immaculately clean and quiet. The breakfast was good but a little dull after a week!
