“Disinterested”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

I found proprietors disappointingly disinterested in making our stay excellent. Requests for various things were filled, but with a desultory attitude and kinda of a "do I have to" way about it. Example: It was hot in our room and we wanted to put on the AC. It was not in season and at first they told us, no, we can't have the AC on as their system wouldn't allow it. Later on, they decided, fine, we could turn on the AC, but they were not happy about it and made us feel as if we were asking for a huge favor. Also, noise is an issue. The hotel is next to the sea but there is a two-lane highway between the front of the hotel and the sea and cars goes flying by it all night long (it is Italy). Thus it is not as quiet as one would want and you need the doors shut and the AC on to sleep well. Finally, it is under reconstruction and the workmen are present and scaffolding dominate its view. Overall, they just seemed disinterested in what they were providing.

I was living in the hotel with my son 16 years in the two single rooms within a week in August, 2012. Pro: very good location - long and sand beach across the street. It is very close to Railway station "Anzio Colonia", about 5 min. walk from this Hotel. Calm, quiet and friendly place to stay with kids and beach vacations.Clear water, cheap and fresh fruit. Only one hour away by train from Rome. A perfect choice for a combined route sights of Rome and a relaxing holiday by the sea. The renovated rooms with a soft and comfortable bed, TV, mini-bar, air conditioning, bathroom. If you need peace and quiet, choose a room overlooking the courtyard. The rooms with a sea view from the noise of cars on the road. But they have a really wonderful view of the sea and the sunset. Contra: Small hotel very popular and very quickly sold. Try to make reservations in advance. Now there is a new reconstruction of the hotel until April next year. This room has no safe-box. Light, mini-bar and air conditioning works only on the hotel card during the stay in the room. Breakfast is small and no hot option. The locals do not speak English. Sometimes there is a misunderstanding of the situation.

We just stayed at this small and lovely hotel in Anzio, right on the sea, 30 seconds form the beach.

The hotel is perfectly maintained with modern and clean rooms. The terrace on top where breakfast is served is breath taking with a beautiful sunset view!!

Last but not least the owners are a lovely couple extremely kind and helpful!

Definitely recommended!

My spouse and I travelled throughout Sicily and the southern half of Italy in early June of this year. On our last night, we wanted to stay within easy driving distance to Fiumicino Airport in Rome, but did not want to stay in Rome itself. We chose to stay in the Hotel l’Approdo in Anzio as it met that requirement. The service we received at the hotel was outstanding, from our arrival in the early evening until our check-out the next morning. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate us, including arranging for an early breakfast sitting the morning of our departure so that we could eat before leaving for the airport. The guestroom we were in was a bit small by North American standards, but on par with most European hotels. Breakfast was served in a beautiful rooftop sunroom with a beautiful view out to the Tyrrhenian Sea. While we were there, the hotel was undergoing a major expansion/renovation, with 8 new guest rooms being added, as well as a new rooftop pool and terrace. The construction should be complete before Summer 2013 and it should be stunning when it is done. Overall, we would recommend this hotel for its service, and it should be even better once there renovation is complete.

Clean, comfortable and nice breakfast with good coffee (and I was underwhelmed generally by the coffee in Italy). It's not luxurious but fitted perfectly our requirements as we visited the grave of a relative in the war cemetery. Very helpful staff despite my total and abject lack of Italian. I would happily stay again were I to return to Anzio.

Immaculate room overlooking the sea, very clean and the owners are friendly and helpful.
We stayed 2 nights in October 2011 and were very pleased with our choice. Breakfast is served to you and is huge. Free car parking.
There is a reasonable Chinese restaurant a couple of minutes away, or a 15 minute walk into town for a large selection of bars and restaurants.

Room Tip: The sea facing room we had was large, and had a large balcony, it was worth the premium.

We stayed 4 days at L'Approdo. It was ideal for the following reasons:
- Direct access to a good beach (access can't be taken for granted on this coast)
- Direct train to Rome within walking distance (approx Euro8 return, 1 hour)
- Great hotel - attractive, well architected, good rooms, good balconies, lift, parking .....
- The price is right, particularly if you share a room
- Great staff - a family run hotel - Nino & family could not be more helpful
- Free WiFi
- Good breakfast

I don't give 5 stars without reason. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Front rooms are bigger, have great sea views and have good balconies. They face west and so don'...
