The Hotel is close to the shuttle or you can pay 5euro each to go from front door to ship.
Giuseppe is fantastic and has lots of local knowledge to share. Breakfast included is a bonus and the rooms are well appointed.
Town is a ten minute walk with a lovely promenade and lots of restaurants and a small, free museum.
Laundry in town 24hour self service for 4euro wash plus 4euro dry.
Going to Rome by train, you should exit at the St.Peters station as all the Hop on Hop off buses start from close by. Termini is in a different part of Rome, so check your maps and see which suits your sightseeing.
Do not risk Airport to Rome to Civitavecchia on embark day. Trains can be slow, late and overcrowded. It may seem prudent to save a dollar, but Giuseppe can arrange a private car for 100 euro Airport to Hotel. Best money we spent !

I was in Italy from 5/12 - 5/23/2013. Eight nights were spent at the Hotel Traghetto. Italy is a wonderful country and the Hotel Traghetto is a wonderful hotel. The room was immaculate and was appointed with all the necessary amenities. Be sure and meet the Hotel Manager, Giuseppe Esposito. Giuseppe is friendly,always smiling, outgoing, helpful and speaks great English. The Breakfast Bar is more than sufficient and the lovely young Jessica makes wonderful Americano coffee. All the staff make you feel as if you are at home rather than in a hotel...in a foreign country.
The Traghetto is located within walking distance of the wharf, the "Kissing Statue", shops, grocery stores,restaurants and bars. Be sure and go to the Open Air Market while there...extra special on Wednesdays.
I would not hesitate to recommend the Traghetto Hotel to all visiting that area of Italy.

I recomend the Traghetto Hotel in Civitavecchia if you are looking for a place to stay prior to or after arriving by cruise ship.
The hotel is located near the port free shuttle service to and from the ships. A little far to walk if you are carting your suit cases. Instead, it's worth a 10 Euro cab ride to the front door of this hotel.
The front desk reception person- Giuseppe gave us a 4 Star smile on arrival and had our bags delivered to our room by the time we registered.! It is a confortable hotel with very nice clean large rooms we had on the 3rd floor. Front ocean view rooms were sold out. How ever we had a very nice view of the park below.
Our 90 Euro per night room rate included a continental breakfast. This was served in a nice dining area. Help yourself, the food was very good. Free cappachino/ water/ coffee all day!
Giuseppe is a charming person who will go out of his way to help any guests staying here. As an example, our friends traveling with us, happen to be waliking in the city when they were caught in a heavy rain shower. Giuseppe happen to be driving buy , stopped and gave them a ride back to the hotel some distance away.
Walking distance to the city is a very 1/2 short block away and you are on the main street with shops and resturants. there is an interesting open air market to see.
Avis rental car is located a few blocks away from the hotel on the main street.
We did take an easy walk to the train station which was a good distance away. Recommend a taxi, or especially if your slugging bags.
Will be coming back to stay here on our next visit.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Traghetto prior to embarking on a cruise. Our room was very comfortable, and we had an excellent view of the ocean from our balcony. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, especially the coffee. Best of all was the personal attention given to us by Giuseppe, who assisted us in everything including where to visit, where to eat, e-mail, travel arrangements, and generally making us comfortable, especially since our command of the Italian language is limited as best. The other staff were also very pleasant and helpful. My experience here was much richer than my stay at a brand-new hotel near Rome. I will definitely plan to stay at Hotel Traghetto on my next visit to Civitavecchia.

This unique hotel is walking distance from the port and centrally located near upscale shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and fabulous wine stores. The gracious manager, Giuseppe, greets you with a smile at the front desk and eagerly answes any questions about your accomodations and the complimentary breakfast provided. He is very knowledgeable about the local sites not to be missed and train travel into Rome. Our double room was very spacious with a large window that looked out to the ocean. We photographed great sunset views from the window and also enjoyed a great bottle of the local wine while sitting on our balcony in the evening. We stayed two nights at Hotel Traghetto for 90 euros per night, including a fabulous breakfast buffet each morning. We'll definitely stay at the Traghetto again. The exceptional hospitality, cleanliness, and comfortable accomodations this hotel offers make it one of the best values in Civitavecchia.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have a better view of the city and the ocean.

I spent one night at the Hotel Traghetto. Guiseppe and his staff were excellent. Very freindly and very accommodating people. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there next time when I am on a cruise. This is a small very intimate hotel but without the amenities of the larger, more expensive hotels. There is no restaurant as such, but the continental breakfast is more than adequate, and there is no swimming pool.

Room Tip: Take the advice of the management. They are honest and straightforward. They will advise you as to...

My husband and I stayed in Hotel Traghetto for 5 nights before boarding the RCCL Mariner of Seas bound for Galveston, TX. Giuseppe treated us like family. His attention to details in e-mails and at the hotel was outstanding. The room was more than adequate and the view of the ocean from the veranda was special. The location provided a block walk to a supermarket and a short walk to the downtown area. Perhaps the greatest feature was the neighborhood pizzeria located a few steps from the hotel. Excellent Pizza! Breakfast was good and the coffee/tea was excellent. Giuseppe arranged for a transport from the airport to the hotel and then again we used the hotel transport to the port. It was a pleasure getting to know Guiseppe. We will definitely stay at the Hotel Traghetto in the future.
