“Very comfortable hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We stayed here before a cruise; due to a mixup in our plans we were in Civitavecchia for 3 days, and did not expect to enjoy it that much. Wrong! The town is delightful and the hotel very pleasant. Our room was large and overlooked the water. The staff members were all friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet is extensive and a great benefit to Americans accustomed to more than the European coffee-and-roll. The train station is a convenient block away but the trains are electric so there's no train noise. The cruise port is several (flat) blocks away in the other direction; after watching throngs of folks walking/wheely-ing from train to port we decided to do it ourselves, with no problem. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Best rooms are higher floors and at the front.

Pros
Center of town
5 min walk to train station or cruise shuttle area
Very spacious rooms
Decent breakfast

Cons
Dated furniture (shabby chic) and sparsely decorated
No safe in room
Tiny shower

For American standards it's a 3 star hotel. There is no wow factor to this hotel. Nothing special you'd mention to your friends of family.

We stayed at Hotel De La Ville in Civitavecchia prior to our cruise on the Mediterranean. Because of its position, just 2 minutes walk to the main port of Civitavecchia, this hotel it's the best choice if you want to have a rest before boarding the next day to a cruise. The city itself has nice little harbor cafes and Italian restaurants with a view of the sea. De La Ville has nice spacious rooms and helpful staff. Don't expect an all you can eat breakfast, it's mostly basic but fresh and just right to start the day.
Have a go and book this hotel if you're visiting Rome's main harbour, in Civitavecchia or if you're there prior to a cruise.

We were driving to Capalbio to make a visit to our favorite distillery (fyi, Jacobelli Liquori) and when we arrived for a look-see in Civitavecchia, we decided to spend the night. Arriving at the Hotel De La Ville with no reservations, we were greeted professionally. We were told where we could park our car (in the hotel's secure private lot) and were handed the keys to our room, a suite in the front corner of the hotel, with a dramatic ocean view.
Aside from the fantastic view, the room itself was in need of a little TLC (stains on the carpet, distracting marks on the wall as if someone let their child loose with a marker pen) and a very foul odor. We decided to open both the windows in the room, and see if we could blow some fresh air through to eliminate the smell (we didn't want to complain to the desk and risk loosing the fabulous view). Sure enough, after returning from our afternoon stroll, the odor was gone.
The bathroom was clean and stocked with basic soap and towels. We slept well with no noise from outside, even though the hotel (and our room) faced the main, busy street leading through Civitavecchia and it's ports.
In the morning, breakfast was served in a visually interesting room, just off from the front desk. An assortment of decent breads and the usual cold suspects were served, along with fresh made-to-order coffees. All the staff we encountered during our stay were professional...helpful, but not overly ingratiating.
I wish there was a tripadvisor rating somewhere between "average" and "very good"...the Hotel de La Ville offers spectacular views with it's brilliant location, while the condition of the room felt as if it had been over-looked.
All said, we would (with lower expectations) return to the Hotel De La Ville the next time we find ourselves in Civitavecchia.

Room Tip: Our corner suite had spectacular views! Considering the compromised condititon of the room, we prob...

We needed a place for one night and this hotel was just OK. The location is very good, just a few meters from the harbour and train station, and downtown. Our room was big enough, for 2 adults and 2 children, was clean, not perfect but OK. My son (14y) slept alone in a bed, our daughter (11y) with us in a wrilly big bed.
Breakfast was good, ordered cappuccino for free.

If you are going on a cruise and need to be near the port- stay here its really ok for the night.
Our room was ok with a view to the sea , the breakfast was average. Its not somewhere where I would stay for a holiday, but a one night before a cruise is fine!Also the older man at reception when we arrived was not very welcoming

From the first meeting with the check-in clerk this was a bad experience. He was rude and never offerred a true welcome or help with anything from luggage to information about the "suite". Are you kidding me? The TV, a 16 inch model at best didn't work. No chairs in the sitting room. A lousy single bed up a rickety staircase to a dimly lit bathroom. A noisy ineffective air conditioner. No bar and no restaurant. Were told we could walk to the port with our 3 pieces of luggage and 2 carry-ons for a 2 week cruise. All this for $200. Euros. What a rip off. Think I will fire my travel agent.

Room Tip: There is another hotel a door down. Too bad we didn't have reservations there. We ended up usi...
