We were in off season so our review may be biased due to the fabulous off season discount. The location was ideal on the beachfront boulevard and next door to the shopping promenade and centre of the restaurants and only a short walk to the metro to Rome. The service was very friendly and excellent. The breakfast was very good... More

My wife &I have just spent 2 nights here. After 24 hrs in transit they could not have been more helpful on arrival quite late in the evening. Fourth Generation family owned hotel gives you a taste of authentic Italian hospitality. Great location, great staff and a very comfy bed! Excellent value as well.

My wife and I stayed here our last day in Rome to visit Ostia Antica and be close to the airport. The front desk staff were extremely friendly. The rooms are somewhat small but clean. The beach is across the street and there is plenty to do nearby( shopping, dining, etc). This would be an extremely affordable way to visit... More

Only one bridge across the river, so leave early there is heavy traffic. Great access to Rome, station close to the hotel. Roman... More

We stayed here for 2 nights before going by plane to home. Location is great close to the sea and to the train station. The stuff is very helpful and friendly. Ostia is fantastic place. Going to return here in Summer.

Hotel La Scaletta is suitable for many customers and needs. I've utilized the facility for an overnight stay in between flights thru the Fiumicino/Leonardo da Vinci airport. Excellent choice - 9Km from the airport and conveniently located on the Ostia boardwalk (too bad I've arrived late at night and need to catch-up an early morning flight) - this means that... More

We spent three nights in this lovely little hotel (room 102) with a balcony and sea view. We were made very welcome and had all of our requests fulfilled by the great staff. The room was a good size and very clean. It was a little noisy in the evenings but the double glazed doors shut out the sounds (mainly... More
