You never know what can happen to you!!! From a nice inconvenient to a wonderful stay! Highly recommended by a friend of mine, I had the chance to stay in a beach front room. Nice design, very good quality breakfast.

We are two friends that stayed at this hotel for one night before flying out of Rome. It is only a short drive from the airport (we had a rental car) and nicely situated by the sea. Close to several restaurants. Rooms are very modern and clean but slightly too small ( 2 people with suitcases makes it crowded). Breakfast... More

Lovely setting by the marina, where some family members had moored their boat. I had a balcony room, and watched the sun go down over the yacht masts. Good buffet breakfast, but no evening meal out of season. Smart bathroom, although the shower barely worked. I reported this, and it was fixed by the next night.

We grabbed this hotel on recommendation from our travel agent (we booked directly, though), & were so pleased with the location, friendly staff, WiFi, breakfast buffet & location. Right across the street are the boat slips and a wonderful "mall" area, with lots to do. We only had one day, but we made the best of it. The WiFi &... More

We had no idea what a beautiful place this was going to be! It is on the beach right across from the Port of Rome's entrance. Lots of beach activity going on that we could have taken advantage of if we had arrived earlier. As it was, strolling in the port and along the beach was delightful. We had spent... More

Was a bit worried when I read the reviews for this hotel but we were pleasantly surprised. We found the hotel and everything about it excellent. Only downside is the area that it is in but am surprised it has so many bad reviews. Would recommend

I had higher expectations to this hotel according to the photos. I stayed here for 4 nights, and the WiFi didn't work any other places than in the fire stairs -I made the front office aware of the problem, but nothing changed during our stay. Breakfast was very tiny, with a very small selection of dark bread. The terrace on... More
