The Aran Blue provided a nice stay. The hotel is very new and the room was perfect. It is not near a downtown area (in Ostia), but there are interesting sights and facilities near the marina. The personnel was friendly, and helped me find my way around town. It is located in a residential, and this gives an interesting touch... More

I stayed for the week to visit friends and the hotel was in a great location. 10mins from the airport, beautiful sea view, lovely breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Fast and easy connection to Rome. The port is lively with a good selection of restaurants and only 2 mins walk. Thank you for a great break.

After researching a number of hotels, I picked this one because it was supposed to have all of the luxury of a 4 star hotel while being in a tranquil setting by the beach. The only part of this that ended up being true is that the view of the sea is beautiful. The rest of the hotel was terrible.... More

We stayed at the Barcelo Aran Blu for the first and last night of a family trip. It made for a nice place to enter Rome after a very long flight, and a chance to recoup and sleep. The hotel is modern and clean, and the staff is very helpful We choose to pre-pay and to get the breakfast plan,... More

A very modern hotel with friendly and welcoming staff. The rooms are clean and it is nice that they have a balcony. There are some disadvantages though: The bathroom has only a frosted glass door, which is slightly uncomfortable. Also the key card nearly never works because of the strange system it has. I would furthermore recommend everyone to specifically... More

A very good hotel near the airport Rome Fiumiciono Rome (FCO). We used it as an airport hotel. The price was more than acceptable for students. Although the hotel is something away from the airport (about 25 minutes by public transport: 2 buses), but that you must accept for the reasonable price. It can be seen as a disadvantage, in... More

We wanted a rest after 3 weeks travelling, and before we flew out - hotel is near airport, local community taxi just 20Euro from airport and 30Euro return. Room was lovely and modern and we had a sea view, balcony. Beach opposite, just across the road and you could take a lounger from hotel. Café on the beach was delightful,... More

I chose to stay at Barcelo Aran Blu, because I had a morning flight to catch out of Rome. I essentially made it to the hotel only to walk across the street for dinner, go to bed and walk along the waterfront the next morning. I found the room to be modern and clean. The window coverings were a bit... More

Clean, large, modern and design rooms. We got the sea view - the no sea view makes the room look much more dull... Although we had to pay extra. Comfy bed. A little on the pricey side in my opinion. Full breakfast, although I dont get how a 4 star hotel can offer,automatic machine coffee - but you could ask... More
