Stayed here at the end of an Overseas Adventure Tours trip. Very nice, as were all the places we stayed, and I'll be happy to stay there again when I come back. Which I will since I didn't really get to explore the ruins in Ostia.

We booked this hotel through a Delta "fly and stay" plan, so we had no idea what it would be like. The location, view of the sea, cleanliness of the room and bathroom, and helpfulness of the staff exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stay near Rome, but not in Rome. Rome was... More

From the moment we checked in, I knew my girlfriend and I were going to enjoy our stay. We felt very welcomed and even shared a joke or two with the receptionist. We had a lovely twin room with a balcony over looking the beach and the marina which we enjoyed watching the sun rise from every morning of our... More

Easy walking distance to Roman sites; very near Barberini Plaza. Front desk and Concierge service were exceptional. Room decor was beautiful. Daily breakfast buffet had a nice assortment of breads for toasting, fruits, juices, hot dishes and coffees.

Short staying related to business. Good quality relative to room layout and decoration. Hotel staff is friendly and professional. The location is not ideal: little or no public transport at all, so you will rely on taxi. Rooms are decent size and nicely decorated. Back yard view is not great and quote noisy.

I will caveat this negative review by stating up front that the staff were extremely helpful and did their best in a bad situation. Ostia is a bad location, had we known what it is like before we went there we would not have gone. This is of course, our fault, but worth noting before you go. Rome is much... More

It's sorounded from dirty apartments, thought the beach is right in front of the hotel. We needed 30 min to get to a grocery store and a city wasn't there anywhere. The beach was full of... More

After a long tour we came here because it was VERY near to the Airport. The street area to the rear of the hotel is a bit run-down, but it faces directly onto the beach, there are a couple of good beach bars withing 5-10mins walking distance and turning right gets you down to the harbour area, yachts, bars etc....
