Excellent stay. The hotel was located on the water with balcony and stunning views. Breakfast was excellent with a wide array of options. The staff was very kind and went out of their way to help any way they could and pre arranged our shuttles from the cruise port to the hotel and from the hotel to the airport. Excellent... More

My GF and I really enjoyed our stay here. This is a modern hotel in a great location by the beach and marina. There are some lovely resteraunts by the marina, and we enjoyed checking out the beach clubs etc. The room was spacious and nice, and the bathroom was nice, but a little tatty. Breakfast was good, but the... More

The Barceló Aran Blu is a very nice hotel situated just off the beach and with the Rome marina very close by as well. The rooms are nicely decorated and have all you need, but the best part is the very spacious balcony overlooking the sea. All in all a very nice hotel.

We stayed here for one night before flying out of Rome, having spent the day at Ostia Antica. We had a struggle finding the hotel and we wasked several people working in Ostia where it was. None of them had ever heard of it, which had us a bit worried for a while. We literally found it by accident eventually.... More

The room we were assigned had no air condition and the operations manager was a bit rude when I asked for a discount. We had to stay because we arrived at 7 p.m. and our flight was leaving the next morning at 6 a.m. So, we had no choice but to stay in a small room with no ventilation and... More

Hotel room with sea view very pleasant, clean and modern. Lots of toiletries and replenished daily which was excellent. However, it would have been greatly improved if the hotel provided a kettle in the room we had to ask for hot water to take up to our rooms in the lift , not ideal health and safety. We were told...

Breakfast buffet was really good and service wonderful! Our room was very nice, and the location of the hotel was very convenient to the airport. The beach areas across the street plus several restaurants and a market were convenient, too!

It was the right place to stay after a long haul flight from Hong Kong - Dubai - Rome. The place was really peaceful in January. The sea looked so relaxing from the window. Would have liked to eat at the place but the restaurant was already shut. I imagine it would be a fantastic place to be in during... More

Nice location right opposite the beach close to the airport and fairly close to Rome, all at a very competitive price. Budget on a €25 taxi fare from the airport to the hotel. The trip takes about 20 minutes through some backlanes & housing estates. So if your on business in the Rome area not a bad place to stay... More

Right across the street from the beach. Center of town is a 10-minute walk along the beach and the yacht harbor is a minute away. Great restaurants nearby. Beautiful views and the room is spacious. Staff is pleasant & helpful. Great breakfast. Very clean. Thin walls, just turn on the a/c fan to muffle. Rooms facing the beach are the... More
