“Impressive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Honestly speaking we were expecting a lot but, when we arrived, we couldn’t find anything wrong with the hotel. It was amazing, the staffs were polite and, helpful. The lobby was immaculate, the view from the room was wonderful, comfortable beds but, the bathrooms were quite small.

The hotel also offers a bus to the cruise terminal at a minimal cost
and, about 10 min walk to the train station. A good transit for before or after a long flight or a cruise.

First greeted by Front desk gal...Mette very helpful in making it easy for us to check in.....this was nice. She also helped us pick out a day outing the next day since we had it free.....she arranged for transportation for 6 of us to get there and back.....great recommendation.
Rooms very clean.....beds very comfortable...we had 2 levels and TV was on the upper level......breakfast was very good....they arranged for us to be taken to our ship the next day also.....all in all a wonderful hotel and would stay there again. You could walk every where from there...location means a lot to us...since we are walkers...

Room Tip: We didn't have a view (room 107) but nice to open a window for fresh air....that was not importa...

Booked this hotel as a place to decompress before a cruise. Based on reviews was not expecting a lot. Turned out to be a wonderful hotel in probably the best part of town (yes, that is comparative, going south gets a bit iffy). Walking distance to the cruise shuttles, the fort, the cool statue, and some really good restaurants. We got a balcony suite. Very nice - not a postcard view, but at least you could see the Med and get the breeze. The staff was excellent. The rooms were very clean and nice. Breakfast and dinner were great. Picadilly has been way underrated in their reviews ( I will review separately). My only negative is about the stairs to the loft. In the words of Frau Bluecher, "The staircase... can be treacherous." Very steep.

Also - if you need any supplies go to the Green Turtle

Room Tip: Get the balcony and enjoy the Med!

The room was nice, but the bathroom and shower were odd. This is an old house that has been converted to a hotel, so the layout of the bathroom in some rooms is less than Ideal. The sink was small for 2 people (no vanity top, just a sink) and the shower was also small with no place to put shampoo or razor or soap (I am 65 years old and it is tough to keep bending over to pick those things up while showering). The room was clean and quiet, and the food in the restaurant was very good. The staff was very eager to help and the place was well organized.

My only complaint was that they tended to nickel and dime us with extra charges for wireless Wifi (they said we could use multiple devices but my wife could not get the Wifi to work with her phone), for a shuttle to the cruise ship, and since checkout was at 10:00, I had to pay extra to use the room until their shuttle was ready to go at noon.

Although there were no serious issues, I might look for another hotel the next time we are in Civitavecchia.

Dear Rotten Bob,


Thank you for staying with us prior to your cruise and for your review. We are glad you have enjoyed our restaurant and our staff attitude, we are really proud of both.
Regarding your remarks on the bathrooms, you are right the Hotel is an old House and furthermore it is protected by the Italian Culture Office, and for this reason we are not able to make the changes in the rooms.

Regarding your complain about internet, we have special packages that includes the wi fi connection and for the other guest internet has a small charge. We confirm that the Wi Fi can be used only in one device for the antiterrorism law every access should be related only to one device. Probably there has been a misunderstanding, and we apologize in this case.

Regarding the check out time, the majority of our Guest comes from USA and Canada and their flight arrives early at the Airport and with the check out at 10.00 we try to have the rooms ready as soon as possible. We would like to remind to all the guest that we have the opportunity to store all the suitcases and the Hotel it is located in the Historical part of the town in case they would like to have a promenade on the center.

We hope to have the chance to welcome you on your future trip to Civitavecchia

Arrivederci

Really nice wheelchair accessible Hotel with very helpful staff and is in a great location on the foreshore near the port. We only stayed the one night before our cruise and this hotel was nearly ideal. The accessible room was at the rear with a window onto a lane, it was quiet, very clean, well air conditioned and had plenty of room for a wheelchair. The bathroom worked but was just ok, the wheel in shower was to small and it was impossible to shower without flooding the floor. That aside the lifts were all large enough and the entire hotel is accessible. The included breakfast was very good and the restaurant looked good but we ate out at one of the many nearby restaurants. The hotel provides a shuttle bus to the port but it is not wheelchair accessible however it is only about 300 metres to the port entrance where there is a free accessible shuttle bus to the ship.

We stayed at the San Giorgio both before our recent cruise and after our cruise.
The hotel is a little quirky in that the bedrooms we had had mesanine floors to the bedrooms. On our first stay we had a bedroom at the back of the hotel, but on our second visit we were upgraded to a sea view room. We had asked on our first visit could we please check in early as we would be off the ship at 9am. They said that there would not be a problem and if they had a room available then we could have our room right away, this they did. A great lady receptionist, spoke perfect English and could not do enough for you.
We found the hotel very convenient for the shops and the restaurants that were near by. Thought that the prices of meals was rather expensive. The breakfast was included and was enough for what we wanted. Would have been better if the waiter cleared the dishes after eating, but seemed to leave the table till you left.
Over all we would use this hotel again.
Only negative was the fact that the bath had a large crack in the bottom and we flooded the bathroom when we had a shower. We reported this when we checked out and they were to send maintenance to check it out.

Room Tip: Room 120 had a sea view and was a little larger than our first room 111.

I stay in the major hotel chains every week for business so wasn't sure what to expect of this independent hotel. I was surprised. The staff were so friendly. We got a very warm greeting. The room comfortable and clean. The hotel restaurant was very nice with a good menu. We also used the hotel shuttle bus from FCO and the service was excellent. On the whole a lovely stay that I just can't fault.

Room Tip: We stayed in 114 which had an internal balcony which was quirky.
