Nice hotel, good and friendly staff. Very comfortable and clean room, I slept like a child. Good standard of a breakfast. I would definitely recommend it. Very close to marina and few good restaurants.

Good location just at the sea and the port. The bar and the restaurant was closed. You can hear each and every noise coming out of other rooms. The town is messy, people don't clean after their pets and just throw the garbage on the ground.

Close to airport and easy access to Rome and surroundings. Lovely room with terrace overlooking port and sparkly Mediterranean. Great breakfast and attentive staff. I would highly recommended mend this hotel for business or a break

There were bugs in the room. The room was so small that we had to block the door to open a suit case. The restaurant served reheated food, possibly leftovers. Ostia is not a town that you want to visit.
