Anzio itself is a waterfront fishing town that was heavily bombed during the war, famous for allied landings and is home to a Commonwealth cemetery and War Museum(closed Wednesdays) . Lots of history here relating to 2nd world war. The shopping is minimal and expensive. Hotel La Bussola di Anzio is a few minute walk to the large piazza and town centre. The Hotel is one or two streets away from the marina and restaurants line both sides of the street fronting the water. Very nice hotel entry, parking directly opposite the hotel, rooms very average but clean. The bathroom had terrible cotton type towels. The staff on arrival were friendly but other staff as they came into work were often grumpy, not helpful and not very communicative. What we didn't like was coming back from dinner late one night finding a number of room keys, from guests who were still out , lined up along the reception desk so we could help ourselves. Not a very safe practice.
Breakfast was ordinary and little of it but in and all fairness, a group of soldiers had just been to breakfast and perhaps they might have been really hungry. Good location but they need to lift their game quite a bit.
