I studied the Civitavecchia options in detail before choosing this hotel for our pre-cruise overnight. Two members of our party four had mobility issues, so I needed to make the right choice. If we stayed right in town, we'd have access to restaurants, the promenade area, shops, etc., but research indicated we might have to walk ourselves and luggage to the pier shuttle -- not an acceptable option. Staying at Hotel Borgo del Mare meant we'd be a bit further out and more isolated, but have access to a hotel-to-pier shuttle. That's what made our choice. (In fact, the hotel shuttle took us right to the ship, not just the to the pier shuttle as I'd originally read.) When we reached the hotel, we were a bit early and our rooms weren't ready. The staff showed us where to store our luggage; our two mobility-challenged people relaxed on the hotel patio while the third member of our party and I returned our car to the Fiumicino airport area (an hour's drive south). We returned to Civitavecchia from the airport by train in another hour (an easy route with one change of trains and only E11 each). At the Civitavecchia train station there was no sign of any cabs, so we decided to walk to the hotel. I didn't time it, but it took certainly under 30 minutes. I wouldn't recommend this walk in very hot weather. The sidewalk does disappear for a while, so care must be exercised. Dinner and breakfast at the hotel were both fine. We were especially pleased with breakfast. I recommend this hotel for an overnight experience without hesitation.
