A really good hotel, in a good location,that offers all the benefits of a beach holiday, and at the same time, is a thirty minute train ride from Rome and its many attractions. My 14 year old son and I have just spent a very happy week at the Hotel Bellavista. We arrived a few hours before the check-in time, but the staff had anticipated this and gave us our room immediately. A small bottle of wine as a welcome drink awaited us in our mini-bar as did some bottled water. The hotel faces the sea and is just across a road from the beach. Our room was spotlessly clean and the beds were comfortable. The room safe and air conditioning are free of charge and we had a great sea view. The bathroom had a good shower, basin and loo. A very adequate continental breakfast is provided, which set us up nicely for the day. We really enjoyed the free use of bikes,to explore the locality, especially a ride along the seafront to the Castel-Fusano pine forest, on a beautiful day. Another pleasure for us was luxuriating in the hot tub on the roof-top sun terrace, free of charge, after a long day's sight-seeing. There is also a nice sauna, but there is a small charge for this. All the staff were friendly and the reception staff were extremely helpful. Wi-fi is free and available throughout the hotel. A few minutes walk away there is Stella Polare train station, from where you get to Rome. A single ticket that can be used on the train, both metro lines and the buses, for one hundred minutes from validation will cost 1.50 euros. There are many restaurants within walking distance, including a small vegetarian bistro in Bellavista's sister hotel, next door, which is open from May. We also liked the " green " ethic that the hotel management encourages exemplified by little recycling bins on every landing and guidance as to non- essential washing of towels etc..To sum up, good location, clean, comfortable, helpful, friendly staff, good breakfast and good amenities, what more does one need, especially in this price range?
