“Outstanding pre-cruise destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

My wife and I stayed at BelSole the night before our cruise. All expectations exceeded during our stay at BelSole. Irina and her husband, Dominique and two adorable sons met us at the train station and took us to their property late on Saturday evening. Our room was ready, spotless, roomy, very clean and well maintained. They recommended a take out pizzeria across the street due to the late hour and opened the dining room at BelSole so my wife and I could wind down from our train ride from Milan and enjoy our dinner and wine. (I do not recommend the pizza, but it worked for us due to the late hour and heavy downpour). The next morning, the continental breakfast was more than adequate, but the coffee was the best I had in Europe the past two weeks! Our ship did not begin boarding till 1 PM, so we chilled in the dining room and surfed the Internet till it was time to leave. It was still raining, so Dominique volunteered to drive us to the port. I highly recommend this gem. Very clean and very very nice people who will do anything they can for you. I made all my arrangements with Irina thru the hotel web site. Enjoy your stay and wonderful hospitatility-and don't pass up on the outstanding morning coffee selections.

The room was nice and the breakfast was great in a very nice room. The hosts were very accomodating. They offered to pick us up at the train stattion. The next day they drove us to the port to meet our cruise ship. Their place is very near the main center of Civitavecchia where the reateraunts are much, much cheaper than Rome.

We stayed at the Bel Sole Bed & Breakfast the night before we left on our cruise on October 30, 2012. Great family-run business who go out of their way to be helpful. They picked us up at the train station and also drove us down to the pier where we picked up our shuttle. Breakfast was light but nicer than the typical European breakfast and the table was attractively pre-set for our group and at a time that was convenient for us. The room was a decent size (we had a triple room - one double bed with a single) and very clean. I would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place in Civitavechhia!

We recently had the great fortune to stay at the Bel Sole before our 13 night Mediterranean cruise took off from the Civitaveccia port. Both of the gentlemen (we feel so bad that we didnt get their names) were so nice and friendly. The room was gorgeous and relaxing - with lovely air conditioning! They had a lovely italian breakfast waiting for us when we woke up and they made the best cappuccino I had on my whole trip through Italy! The gentleman also provided a van service to the port for free and refused the tip, which was truly unfortunate because out of the whole trip to Italy he was the one we would have most liked to tip! Thank you so much for our lovely stay! We can't recommend Bel Sole enough!

We stayed for one night prior to a cruise out of Civitavecchia. Our arrival was slightly disconcerting as once we found how to make contact (a buzzer to the owners) it would seem that they are off premises. We were let in and were unaware that the owner would then make an appearance shortly. We wandered around inside meanwhile, trying to make contact. All of this though just added to the quirky charm of the place.

I didn't expect anything fancy, this is after all a simple, welcoming spotless B&B with a very comfortable bed, ensuite, flat screen italian TV channels and minimalist furniture. We had a good night's sleep and enjoyed the included breakfast, very italian style. We found all the staff to be charming and helpful - Irina was unavailable so lots of friendly sign language communication with everyone else. The host (sorry, I didn't get his name) even made a car available to take us to the cruise terminal the following morning which we thought was an exceptionally nice touch. The location is a pleasant 20 minutes or so walk to the seafront and some great restaurants. I would highly recommend this B&B and will certainly use them again if our travels take us to the port in future.

The brand new B&B Bel Sole is especially convenient for those who want to start their cruise from Civitavecchia directly. All rooms have their own private entrance and bathroom, some with kitchenette facilities. If you do not have too much luggage, it is located an easy walking distance from the railroad station and the entrance to the harbor, where there are free shuttles to the ships. Prices start at less than half the local hotels. Irini is a very charming, helpful owner.

I needed a place to stay 1 night before my cruise. I was looking for a good rate and here was the best I could find. If you are looking to be on the water, this isn't for you. About a 12-15 minutes stroll down a main street and you are at the entrance to the port.

I called when I arrived at the train station, they came to pick me up right away.

Free internet and the place looks new, bed was comfortable (better than what I had in Rome), new sheets, flat screen TV and good bathroom.

Next morning, went downstairs for a typical Italian Continental breakfast, packed and was taken to the port.

I'm glad I stayed here because otherwise I might not have ventured up into the neighborhood where I found some things I needed to buy and some nice cafes.
