“Perfect location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Located right on the boardwalk bordering the sea, it is a short walk (5 min) from the train station and an easy scenic stroll (15 min) to the port entrance. The room was clean, had sky-high ceilings and a private balcony that opened to the bustling boardwalk below, and the beachside just beyond. I was received with amazing friendliness by the staff, both at the reception and at breakfast, and was even offered an introduction to the city with points-of-interest and best dining spots, upon my arrival. It is a 3 star hotel in an old building, so don't expect too much in regards to amenities and decoration, but for the value for money, I would recommend this quaint hotel to anyone traveling on a budget.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ocean view.

We stayed in this hotel a few nights because other hotels were fullbooked and we couldn´t wash at all in the bathroom because there wasn´t hot water. There was one man with long hair in the reception who didn´t mind at all. He said that it is normal in that hotel.

Pre-cruise we stayed at Hotel Miramare. This is an old traditional hotel very near the railway station. Since we had previously visited Rome several times we decided on going straight to the port this time.

Taking the train to Civitavecchia from the airport is easy. You buy a ticket for the whole distance, get on the train at the airport and change at Trastevere. The only challenge is that there is little space for your luggage so you either end up taking 4 seats for 2 people or staying out in the passage way.

Check-in at the hotel went smoothly and they were ever so friendly. We were given a map and lots of advice about where to go and what to see. We were on the top floor and had an amazing sea view.

Our room (or should I say 2 rooms) was large and clean. The furniture was basic - and the bed a little on the hard side. The only thing we were worried about was that there seemed to be no fire alarm in the room (the wires were not attatched to anything)

Breakfast was Ok - quite Italian with a lot of pre-packaged sweet cakes. I prefer plain toast and marmelade. The coffees were really good.

Next day we could have taken a taxi with other passengers to the port - but decided to walk with our luggage which took about 15 minutes to the port bus.

Would we stay there again - it depends. If going to Civitavecchia, yes. However - another time, we will probably book a hotel in Trastevere. That way we have the easy access by train to the port, combined with the benifits of being in Rome. Civitavecchia does not have much to offer. The shops are really expensive, the restaurants average and not much too do there.

I think the hotel deserves at 3.5 rating - but the choice is 3 or 4

A perfect choice for a pre or post cruise stopover. We were so glad we chose this Hotel and not one of the larger ones on the main promenade. Friendly staff, great seafront location and spotlessly clean. Pleasant 5/10 minute walk to shops etc. We ate at a restaurant close by rather than walk to town. We shared a shuttle to the ship with other cruisers, which was organised by Reception. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Seafront room with balcony!

We stayed there for 2 nights in mid-May before our cruise. At the front desk, we had very useful and friendly advices from Gianny. He took the time to explain how things work in Italy. Every time we walked in, he would greet us personally and his recommendations for activities and restaurants were excellent.
The hotel is near the train station (walking distance) and about 5-10 minutes’ walk to the port's main gate. The ocean view from our room was stunning. A little noisy in the evening. The continental breakfast was excellent and the lady serving the cappuccinos always had a nice smile.
We would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Ocean view is a must.

This is a lovely traditional Italian hotel. Stayed one night after arriving from Venice by train in the pouring rain.
The hotel is opposite the station and and easy walk with luggage. The hotel organised a shuttle for those who wanted it the next day (Thank you Gianni). I think it was 6 euros paid to the driver and dropped off right at the ship not the port entrance.

We had planned to have dinner in the hotel but there was a private function that night so we had to go out to eat.

There is a small elevator, one person at a time with luggage but it did the trick.

Lovely sea view and room nicely decorated and spotless.

Continental breakfast but lots of it and it did the trick, included in rate. Loved the apricot jam.

Would love to stay there again.
