“Lovely hotel, friendly staff”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

My husband & I were on our honeymoon when we stayed for 3 nights here. The hotel had arranged to pick us up from the airport & when we arroved they were very friendly and welcoming. They even put in a bottle of champagne in our room to help us celebrate! The room were nice with everything we needed. The breakfast area did remind us of a school canteen but the buffet was lovely. The outside of the building needs updating which they were starting when we arrived but inside it is more modern. Easy walk to metro & shops and helpful staff who helped us find ur way. Would stay there again!

I was pleasantly surprised by our stay at the hotel having read some negative reviews. We found it clean with upgraded and modern bathrooms and a great view of the sea. Our host was very friendly and helpful and recommeded an excellant restaurant. The breakfast was basic but adequate and the price was a good value. We did not notice any street noise and the windows are double-paned. All in all a good value and a nice spot.

our room was in 1st floort, clean, simple and big enough. View from balcony was perfect!! Breakfast included in price was nothing special but all right. AC worked perfectly. Close to beaches, bars and many restaurants. Very friendly staff. Only 30 mins by metro to the centre of Rome. Minus is noise from street at night! All in all more than you can expect from 2** hotel.

Room Tip: excellent view from see side balcony but a bit noisy at night. Maybe room in 2nd floor are quieter.

We stayed one night. The hotel is an old building but restored not long ago. Our room was just ok, nothing special. It was opposite the lift and we heard every person arriving. The bathroom was extremely small.The hairdryer was the type "hairdryer for bald people".
The best was the incredible view to the seafront from the room´s balcony.
The staff were very kind. Breakfast was good for Italy.
Very expensive for the services offered. No free wi-fi, no car park .

Room Tip: Looking to the beach.On the first floor rooms have balconies to the beach and good views.

I was stranded at the Rome airport due to hurricane Sandy hitting the east coast of America. I was so glad that I found this hotel. The hotel was spotless, the staff friendly and helpful, and it's located by a lot of restaurants, cafes, and stores. I would stay here again, and anytime I visit Rome this would be my first choice. It's a short walk to the metro, and within 30 minutes you're in the center of Rome. The internet was reliable.

We booked early and were able to get two rooms with balconies facing the ocean, which I would highly recommend even if you don't plan on spending any time on the balcony. The light and the views make the rooms very cheerful. Otherwise you might be disappointed by the rather ordinary small corridors leading to the rooms. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is standard, with no frills (no fresh fruit or hot eggs!) but the price is also very reasonable. Although our rooms were directly above the street, we had a very peaceful night and were not disturbed by any noises. It is easy to visit Ostia Antica or to drive to the airport from the hotel (about 25 minutes with traffic).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view

Hotel La Scaletta is a good basic hotel -no frills. It is centrally located, within walking distance from railway station, 100 meters from the sea. If you are lucky, you might get a room with quite a nice view. There is plenty of traffic noise, music from the boulevard and people passing, so it's not the most peaceful place in the world. It would be a good idea to bring your ear plugs. Hotel itself is clean, service is good, and breakfast was rather limited but that's normal in Italy.
