“A Magical Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

My wife and I spent our honeymoon driving through Italy. One evening, we were struggling to find somewhere to spend the night and were fearing having to sleep in the car when we happened upon the Foro Appio. It is a truly magical place.

It is located right on the Appian Way and has been serving 'tired and dusty travelers' (as they put it in the hotel's literature) for centuries. As we turned onto the cobbled drive, we saw the stunning candlelit courtyard restaurant and prayed they had a room which fortunately they did, and for such fantastic value! Our room was a perfect combination of old meets new: simple, spacious, minimalist design with all the 'mod cons' including a jacuzzi bath and a sophisticated key entry system. Having taken our bags out of the car we went exploring and found the swimming pool and gym! We couldn't believe that such an amazing place could be found right on the Appian Way. We then went to dinner and what a dinner it was: delicious classic Italian cuisine with mammoth portions: our starters of gnocchi and antipasti were so big we actually had to cancel our mains and go straight to the scrumptious desserts.

The original plan had been to stay for one night but we loved the Foro so much we decided to stay for two! In the morning we discovered that the hotel is perfectly located for trips to the beach and various nearby towns including the fairytale town of Sermoneta, as well as being only a short drive away from Rome. We returned to the hotel from our day out to have flambé steaks cooked in front of us - another superb meal. As we checked out the next morning, the kind man on reception gave us a small parcel of food for our journey, keeping alive a centuries-old tradition. Our time at the Foro Appio was the highlight of our honeymoon and we can't wait to go back.

This was the last place we visited before heading home and it was the perfect exclamation point. The hotel itself is an inspiring mix of history and modernism. The surroundings are majestic and peaceful. The food experience was top shelf: they cooked our food table side, complete with big flames and creative recipes (whipped up some crazy crepe with grand marnier).

Ideal place to stay for those of you that plan on renting a car. Otherwise, agreed with the others...it's a bit off the path.

My husband and I had a wonderfull time in this hotel!
We came here a couple of days to relax. Indeed nothing much to do in the neighbourhood. Although you can make some nice trips to the sea. But the hotel is very nice, beautiful building, beautiful swimming pool, nice relaxing room and fitness with a view. The rooms are basic, but very clean, it was our perfect first stop to relax!
Some rooms are close to the street, so there's some noise, but we've put in ear pluggs! There are also rooms further from the street where you don't have that 'problem'.
Loved the restaurant too!.

What a great place to start our first trip to Italy. We spent our first week here. This country property was wonderful, well kept and very unique with fruit trees, swans and a lovely river. There was also a great swimming pool right outside our suite. Our room was very spacious with all the modern bathroom conveniences and a very comfortable bed. The breakfast served every morning was delicious and plentiful. WE were visiting family in Terracina and found the Hotel drive a pleasant 20 minutes.

We stayed here as an overnight stay on our way to the Amalfi Coast on our honeymoon and were very pleased with the hotel. The Manager kindly upgraded us and our room was massive with a jacuzzi bath. Lunch/dinner int he courtyard next to the river was lovely with fantastic food & service. All appreciate if you learn a little italin. We ventured out and found a lovely stretch of beach and marina about 15 mins from hotel. The hotel is on a main road but there was no noise and the settign out the back is lovely. The manager was very helpful & friendly also.
