Hotel was relatively good and staffs were kind. Breakfast was satisfying. However, the taxi which this hotel prepared for us was very expensive. He asked us too much without the receipt (means illeagal)....

I was quite satisfied with my stay at La Scaletta. My room was clean and quiet. The bath services worked fine. The hotel is easy to find and well placed in Ostia. The desk clerks and staff were friendly and helpful.

Lovely and helpful staff, great location, clean and comfortable. The room had air-conditioning and electric shutters and a very useful fridge. A short walk to the station for easy access to Rome and also opposite the beach. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby.

Room wasn't that nice nor clean, but that was somewhat compensated by the friendliness of the staff. Breakfast wasn't great, but it was okay, we enjoyed it. The hotel is suited for a short stay, but I wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay. Extra info about Lido di Ostia: poor quality commercial beach, not much to do around there,... More

We spent our first night here in Rome from a gruelling flight. We were very pleased with the level of service and care the front desk staffs had shown us. Simply love the day-light block out automatic shutter in the room. We had a good rest from a long jouney. Highly recommend it for a few quick overnights before heading... More

To be honest I was expecting better after reading so many positive reviews, but overall there was nothing wrong with this hotel, it serves the purpose, just don't expect too much. Being situated directly above McDonalds didnt exactly thrill me when we arrived, but it was not a problem for us. The room was quite small, as was the shower... More

After spending 4 days in Rome, 12 days on a Greece/Turkey cruise and 7 incredible days in Tuscany, my wife and I decided to spend our final night in Italy close to the airport, as we didn't want to stress out over the drive. Simply put, we read the Tripadvisor reviews and chose Hotel Scaletta in Ostia. I/we have no... More

Dear darsil325, first of all I want to thank you for having stayed in our hotel your last night in Italy before catching your flight: of course, having to “compete” with the memories of the beautiful places you described above, is a pretty big burden to carry for our small hotel. Moreover, I'd like to thank you for having spent... More

My husband and I decided to use our Emozione 3 gift box to overnight in this hotel, as we were catching an early flight from Fiumicino airport. The airport is only 15 minutes away in off peak hours, unfortunately it can take up to 45 minutes with the morning traffic. The hotel is located just in front of the sea,... More

Having read the reviews from last year, I booked to stay for a fortnight. I am not someone who likes to be out at night, and have found this location to give a good balance between hectic days out around Rome and quieter evenings in; sitting on the balcony looking at the calm sea. The only negative I can find... More

Seeing that the price of the room can be described as reasonable, everything was perfect in this absolutely delightful hotel in which we spent the last night in Italy after having travelled in Lazio for a week. (You can drive from there to Fiumicino airport in about 30 minutes even during the morning rush hour.) Try to get a second-floor... More
