Reviews for Mecenate Palace Hotel
We stayed here for 3 nights on a 10 day trip to Italy. Hotel is very well situated, within a 10 min walk from the Termini station, 15 min walking to the Colloseum and the other nearby must see locations. We were in the 2 bedroom apt located just outside the hotel. Check in was very quick and we received info with a map to all the key areas. The apt is very spacious with 2 bathrooms and 2 decent sized bedrooms. Interestingly, the kitchen was locked off and we were told it would be an additional $20â‚¬ per night if we wanted access. One bathroom had a tub with jacuzzi, the second had a small shower. Water pressure was very weak in both and if you sat on the toilet, your knees actually were in the shower. Very tight! The room was clean and the housekeeping staff did come daily but as mentioned, the place is a bit tired and worn. We found the beds to be quite hard but the linens were excellent. Large living room and dining table and coffee and tea were replenished daily although our creamers were not. Breakfast is included, we missed it entirely the first day due to jet lag, the second day it was lined up and we waited about 10 minutes for a table and then had to ask 3X for coffee, the third morning everything was perfect. Nice selection of cold meats, cheeses, yogurt, pastry, juice and a very small selection of hot items (scrambled eggs and breakfast meat). Certainly sufficient but nothing spectacular. The restaurant is on the rooftop which does offer lovely views of the city. Staff were friendly and helpful. One thing that confused us was the mandatory $6â‚¬ per person city tax. The sign clearly said that children 0-10 years were exempt. Our son is 10 and we were charged. When we asked about it the front desk clerk said it had something to do with the birthdate and the computer calculated it automatically based on this. Makes no sense to me, if 10 is free then until the day you turn 11, you are free. We didnâ€™t argue it but I feel like we should have. Otherwise, the stay was fine. Would we return? Probably not only because there is a lot of choice and we could probably find something better.

Stayed at The Mecenate Palace for 5 nights ............ a most enjoyable experience. Arrived early evening and received a warm, inviting reception from Andrea. Check in was fast and efficient with a quick overview of hotel facilities, meal times etc. Bags taken to room by Julio and given info on room facilities.......mini bar, safe etc. 411A was a very good sized room with an incredibly comfortable kingsized bed ...... fresh, pristine white bedlinen every day. Bathroom was also good size with separate double basin from bath/shower and wc. Good quality toiletries replenished very day. Hairdryer and massive, well illuminated mirror. Great shower pressure and plenty hot water on demand regardless of time of day. Room was immaculately maintained during our stay and the maid service must be highly complimented. Although adjacent to a busy piazza, we at no time found our sleep disturbed........hotel was generally very quiet. The view from the room window was an impressive panorama of the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore........wonderful to watch the sunrise on the building in the morning and the illuminated facade at night. This view is a massive plus if you choose to stay at the Mecenate Palace. We stayed on B&B and breakfast buffet was very, very good. Everything one needs to provide a great start to a busy day sightseeing in the city........fruit juice, cereals, yogurts, fruit, sweet breads, cold meats, cheeses and hot dishes each day. Service was always attentive and friendly and special mention to Marco who ensured our day was started with great service. Must mention the cappuccino ........... wonderful. Our checkout morning went smoothly and thanks to reception (Liana) for assistance with a minor flight problem. All in all the Mecenate Palace Hotel provided us with a most enjoyable stay for the 5 days and would definitely consider staying if (when) we return to this wonderful city.

What a fantastic hotel excellent lovely location fantastic staff friendly will definitely come back again carnt wait only downside hotel bar closes at midnight or earlier some days but not put us off coming back xx
This is the second time my husband and I have stayed in this hotel both stays for one week and after 3 years we certainly noticed a decline. The hotel is looking a bit jaded and old fashioned; in order to compete with other hotels a makeover should be considered. The staff were very friendly when we arrived but we noticed a cooling off by them when we did not book tours through the hotel, which they frequently asked. The breakfast had changed since last time and it is now a buffet style breakfast only. The food in the restaurant was very expensive for below average food, we had a pasta carbonara which was a tiny portion and were charged 14 euros each; make the most of some great restaurants close by, far better quality food and portions. We were also advised that on the first day we could receive a 10% reduction in their lunch menu, which we accepted, again, the portion was minuscule and still very overpriced. The hotel continues to be clean and the cleaning staff couldn't do enough for us, especially if you needed more towels, pillows etc. The hotel was also overly hot for Jan/Feb and was at times overbearing, one could however, take refuge on the external rooftop terrace, which offers stunning views. Sadly we will not be going back.

We booked the presidential suite as it was a present for my husbands birthday. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were lovely. The private terrace is simply beautiful with amazing views over the city and the church. We sat out early and watched the sunrise. The location is perfect to walk to all areas including the Trevi Fountain, pantheon and colosseum. Lots of restaurants and shops close by. The breakfast was lovely and the coffees are to die for. We ate in the restaurant the first night and it was great. The chef came over to chat to us and even gave us some little dessert tasters.
