Stayed here May 2015 with my partner. We booked a package holiday at a price that suited us. Having worked in Ostia before I knew the location was nice but can be out of reach if you don't use local transport to the central area of Ostia. Staff were OK but we were there when Rome airport caught fire and... More

This hotel is right on the beach. Book an ocean view. The room was comfortable but nothing spectacular. The staff was nice and spoke English. Stay away from their "snack bar". The menu said Chinese noodles with beef and vegetables. We got beef Ramon noodles; total ripoff.

We hardly made it to the hotel after waiting in rain on a bus station for 1 hour for them to call us a taxi. In the end some local managed to get us a cab so we can get 2 km ride as it was raining and we had two big bags. When I asked the staff why it... More

Nice, modern hotel. I booked a room with no sea view and, when arrived, I got a sea view room. The hotel is located just on the other side of the beach, near the entrance of the "Porto Turistico di Roma", where you can find nice restaurants (I would suggest "Friends"). Breakfast is very ok and if you want they... More

We stayed at this hotel for 6 days. This hotel has a stunning view of the ocean. It is near a marina with a strip of stores and restaurants. We tried almost all the restaurants. The owners of the stores are very friendly. Saturday's and Sunday's are full of families walking and riding bikes. The bus to the subway is... More

We were advised to leave bags and go for a wander for a couple of hours until rooms were ready, and were all ready to drop... More

This hotel by no means falls within the quality that Barcelo offers worldwide. The rooms are fine, breakfast as well, but you just feel you are at an average 4 star of a new chain. Location is not bad but there are much better spots in Lido di Ostia that would have made a difference for a Barcelo. There is... More

Due to overbooking my group (6 people) was suddenly sent to Barcelo Aran Park although the hotel (Aran Blu) was chosen because it was close to Fiumicino airport and we had to continue our journey early the following morning. We were all extremely disappointed. We were promised a free shuttle the following morning from Aran Park to Fiumicino but to... More
