We stayed here for 3 nights before travelling to Tuscany.
We arranged for the shuttle bus to collect us from Rome CIA airport and we had no problems, rang the hotel when we landed and he was there within 10mins. 5mins drive to hotel. The hotel itself is spotless, rooms cleaned everyday. Pool area was also very clean and quiet. My only problem with the room is that perhaps a kettle should be provided. Drinks (alcoholic and soft drinks) are available all day but fairly expensive (2€ for a can of fanta, sprite, coke etc and 6€ for a small bottle of lager). There is a small supermarket under the by-pass, (through a tunnel under the road. straight up the road next to the tunnel when you come out and take the 2nd left)were we bought reasonbly priced drinks and kept in fridge provided in room. We also found the hotel staff a bit awkward when paying for any drinks we did buy in the hotel. We wanted to pay upfront so we could watch what we spent but they wanted to add it all on a tab to be paid at the end of our stay.
The location of this hotel is horrendous. We found 2 shops and 2 bars (all closed by 9pm). You have to walk along main road which is a bit scary! Although it is made clear this hotel is on an industrial estate, we thought this was maybe exaggerated, but it really is. Meals in the hotel cost around 11€ for a main course but all that was offered was meat it fish with salad. A menu is provided in reception but we didn't try it so I can't comment on the quality. We spent every evening in our room as there is nothing else to do. Thank god for the fairly consistent WiFi!
All in all, nice, clean hotel but bad location. Don't think we could do more that 3 nights!
