The Smy Aran Blu is located right on the seafront. The bedrooms boast privileged views of the Ostia coastline. Just short walk from the harbour town of Ostia and 10km from Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino airport, the location makes the hotel an excellent choice. There are two terraces with views of the sea and the harbour where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset. This space is also available as the venue for events and banquets. What’s more, in summer, it’s fitted out with hammocks and converted into a solarium. Guests just love the location of the hotel, one of the liveliest areas of the coast with a combination of history, culture and sport. Just 6 kilometres form the archaeological site of Ostia Antica, one of the largest and most visited Roman archaeology sites in Italy, and 8 kilometres from the Imperial Harbours of Claudius and Trajan. For sport lovers, the Smy Aran Blu is just 5 kilometres from Pala Pellicone, the headquarters of the Italian Martial Arts and Judo Federation (FIJLKAM), 4 km from the Swimming Federation’s facilities and 1 kilometre from the Spanish Sailing Federation headquarters (FIV)

Powered by AI

Smy Aran Blu Roma Mare captivates guests with its modern ambiance and spacious beachfront rooms, complemented by expansive balconies and scenic views. However, some guests note the rooms could benefit from better darkening features. The hotel's service receives high marks for its efficiency, despite occasional hiccups in communication. While opinions on value vary, with some detractors pointing out noise levels and location concerns, the cleanliness and maintenance of the hotel consistently impress. Amenities like beach access are well-received, even as some report room feature issues and service delays.

I stayed 4 nights at Smy Aran Blu Roma Mare last week. This is South in Rome County, by the sea.
The room was spacious and clean. The bed was firm, just the way I like it.
The location by the beach is great if you are looking for a beach vacation.
The best part of the stay though was the service provided at the front desk. I was looking for a book only avaiable at Amazon Italy. Miss Serena at the front desk was more than willing to help me get the book. She ordered the book using her private account, and 2 days later I had the book. Amazing servize!

The view of the sea and patio were lovely. The staff were so kind and helpful. They lined up our ride to airport that was cheaper than the ride we took from the airport. Coffee bar was amazing. The breakfast was wonderful with many selections and was fresh/tasteful.

We stayed ivernight on a layover in Rome on our way home and it was perfect. Room was all we needed and the free breakfast was a delight. Service was especially friendly and property is waterfront with the beauty of the Mediterranean across the street. Lots of choices for lunch within a 5 minute walk as well. Given what hotels charge in Roma it was a superb value. We had a 19:35 flight out of Roma and they were very kind letting us checkout late.
Muchas gracias Smy Aran BlubRoma Mare🙏

Staff very unfriendly & unhelpful. Waited 5 hours for toilet paper & went to reception twice. No communication on how to call reception from the room or any other line. Location is bad. Place is very run down & needs a makeover, lift is horrible & falling apart. Mosquitoes everywhere.

Great location. Very helpful, friendly staff. Very clean, modern room. Bed comfortable but pillows a bit hard. Not much power in the shower head, but hand held was good. Overall, a really nice stay. I would return.

This hotel was wonderful, it is right on the water. The staff was friendly and very helpful they arranged all our transfers at front and back of our trip.
There are many restaurants within walking distance from the hotel and the food was excellent.

Never stayed here before, did not even know of this area. We have always stayed in Fumicino before our flight from Rome to Toronto.
Did not know there was a beach, and yet a super wide, super long, super nice one is directly across the street.
Room was nice, no outside noise. Breakfast was nice, lots of choices. Parking was very secure which was a great bonus.
Will definitely stay here next year!
Thank you Smy Aran Roma Mare

This hotel is situated amidst delapidated apartment blocks. It didn't feel safe. The hotel fans are very loud as is the neighbourhood at night. The staff a friendly, but speak broken English. Stay elsewhere.

The hotel was a pleasant surprise in Porto Turistico. Black sand beach and balcony were very nice. Breakfast was great. Many nice restaurants and shops along the boardwalk. Bed was good but a bit too firm for comfort. It was a nice way to end our trip to Italy. We booked through a 3rd party, expecting to be very close the to the airport. Unfortunately it is not at all close (40 Euro ride). Beware of Hotwire.

Jackie: Aran Blu will make arrangements for a taxi/van for return to the airport; I am not sure if it arranges for pickup. Taxi cabs are expensive at the airport, nature of the beast. From the airport to Rome Termini main train/tube station, take the Leonardo Express from the airport. In November 2017, I paid 14 euros for the express train. At Termini, all Metro/tube lines are accessible. I believe unlimited Metro/bus transportation for three days is 18 euros. I'm not sure if my senior discount applied. Judging by your photo, you may not qualify for a senior discount ;-) If you seek a reasonably priced 4-Star hotel in Rome, I recommend Hotel 87 Eighty-Seven. Don't let the name throw you. The street address is #87, and the postal code ends with 87. It's an older building, totally renovated. Modern bathroom fixtures, spacious, and comfortable. There's a rooftop bar, and a supermarket is about four blocks away. It's two Metro stops form Termini, at Barbarini (?) Plaza station, four blocks away. The hotel is halfway between Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. The Pantheon is about a mile away, a 20-minute walk. I walked to Galleria Borghese in 15 minutes. It's closed on Mondays, as are most Italian museums, and you MUST reserve a time a day or two before. You have only two hours, and the museum is cleared of guests. Those in the next time slot are outside waiting. I recommend the 9:00 access, and on Wednesday. I believe Thursday is "free" day for locals.

I didn’t see any nearby. I heard there were some lively bars/cafes with music that were walking distance but we walked along beachfront for a few blocks and didn’t see any. You may want to call and ask.
