Gorgeous view. Comfy stay! Near the airport. Things to do places to dine in the evening. Afternoon was very quiet in July but the perfect time to hit the beach which is right out front. Excellent breakfast in the morning as well.

The hotel was stylish and sophisticated. The room and beds are comfortable and very clean. TV and free wi-fi were great advantages. The food was of good quality, but there could have been more variety as we only ate once at the tapas restaurant. There is a huge range of good quality restaurants beside the marina and a few shops... More

Excellent rooms, great welcoming service, and the possibility to enjoy great local cuisine along the Port of Rome.We had the chance to taste some roman style cuisine, and the possibility to take a stroll along the broad walk of the Port. Also the possibility to stroll along the beach area, all the way up to the Pontile di Ostia.

Clean and relatively modern hotel, conveniently located by the sea and 10kms fro Fiumicino airport. Not a bad place to stay for a long weekend. Not sure it is most convenient to go from there to Rome downtown if someone was looking for an affordable hotel for a tourist visit in Rome.

I stayed 1 night at the hotel and found it very clean and convenient to the beach. Loved the view from the terrace. The chef that night made a scrumptious salmon salad and yummy total della nonna dessert.
