Villa Agrippina, a Gran Melià Hotel brings 21st century luxury to the site of the ancient imperial residence of Emperor Nero’s mother, Agrippina. Located between the Vatican City and Riber Tiber, you’ll find an unrivalled location in the Eternal City, as well as a sought-after city-centre outdoor pool and the My Blend by Clarins Spa.

The hotel's privileged location is just half a mile to the east from Vatican City, home to St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, and half a mile south of Castel Sant’Angelo, views of which can be spied from the hotel grounds. Rome’s world-famous Colosseum is less than two miles across the river, and the Pantheon, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain are even closer. Fiumicino Airport is just over 18 miles away.

Inside the peach-tinted building, chic and grand décor is found throughout, starting with the lobby, featuring pale tones and a marble desk. Rooms embrace a modern take on classical Italian style – Renaissance-style paintings and drapery adorn each, while a neutral block-colour scheme keeps the look contemporary. Both the Double rooms overlook the cobblestone street of Vicolo di Sant'Onofrio, but the Double Premier offers a little extra space. Upgrade to a Junior Suite to enjoy additional luxuries like a chic lounge area overlooking the hotel's beautiful Italian gardens.
