Opened in 2012, the Gran Meliá Rome Villa Agrippina hotel is set in one of the most exclusive areas of the Eternal City, very close to the Vatican City, Saint Peter’s Basilica and Castel Sant’Angelo on the left bank by the Tiber River.
This new hotel is a unique destination for travellers in Rome with its outstanding architecture, impressive gardens and exclusive facilities. It is a place where art, hospitality and well-being all come together for the enjoyment of the guest.
The hotel embraces the rich Roman history and is built on the site of what was once the Villa of Agrippina, named in honor of the mother of famous Roman emperor Nero. To make the location even more special, the archaeological remains discovered during its construction will be on display throughout the elegant galleries and communal areas of the building.
Gran Meliá Rome Villa Agrippina is located in the ancient Orti Domiziani, the original and first botanical gardens built in the city, named after Domitia, Nero’s paternal aunt. The private hotel’s garden features native plants, a variety of beautiful indigenous flowers and is framed by ancient orange trees.
Guests can explore both the local history and the impressive flora with the help of the hotel’s expert botanical guides who will illustrate the history and characteristics of the Orti Domiziani.
Gourmet enthusiasts can enjoy dining at the hotel’s Roman-inspired Vivavoce restaurant with an extensive choice of Italian, Mediterranean and international haute cuisine dishes. The Gran Meliá Rome Villa Agrippina offers a Pool lounge as well as a Roof Garden with 360-degree vistas of the city, ideal for cocktails and wine.
