“Comfortable Small Hotel”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We are quite pleased with this small hotel. First noticed is that there is some curb appeal with an off-street courtyard for parking. It is perhaps 200 meters from the shoreline. The interior is nicely done though not overly spacious common areas. The staff speaks English. We were assisted with our luggage. The electrical system is up to date, including recent vintage card-lock doors and card-lock electrical system with an apparent alarm system. The electrical outlets and switches are well placed, especially handy by the bed; very well done by US standards. The elevator is also of very up-to-date and ample in size. The room size was ample, enough space to be comfortable along with our six bags. Room includes one straight back chair. There is a locked room where extra baggage can be stored if you wish. Also a frig and safe box in the room. The stay includes breakfast and shuttle service to the cruise lines. Breakfast is ample with lots of pastries, eggs, bacon, ham, cheese, fruit, yogurt, juice, coffee. Tablecloths on the tables. Dinner is available 7pm-10pm. Dinner is convenient and OK but not great. Menus are available in Italian and English. We ate there two nights because we didn't want to go out. The "Nice" salad is not a Salad Nicoise: green beans, eggs, anchovies, olives; but no tomatoes, potatoes or tuna and the dressing was blah. The chocolate souffle is not a souffle but rather a dark cream filled cake (possibly reflects the problems Italians have with the word cake). The walnut sauce for the cheese plate was replaced by a dull mayonnaise sauce. However the entries and pizza are good with a good selection of seafood. And wine by the glass is ample in quantity and there appears to be a wide selection of wines by the bottle priced inexpensively. Would stay here again. Rated 4-stars for the hotel.

We were stayed at the Borgo di mare for 2 days prior to our cruise. The hotel is very clean and has good service. They have a private transfer service from Rome international to the hotel ( costs around 110 € ) and it's very handy . Another great service is the complementary shuttle service from the hotel to the cruise terminal - free of charge. You will find a good wi-fi service in the bedrooms and a great variety of channels from SKY TV available .. this is great specially for non Italian spoken guests as most of the programs from the regular TV are dubbed.
Breakfast is not the best but not the worse neither ... a few cold cuts , some different type of cheeses and an insane variety of sweets ( cakes and pies mostly ) . If you want to try some nice seafood while staying at the hotel , I recommend you to walk to Restaurant Ideale. It's a 5 min walking from the hotel and not only the food is great but the location as well . The restaurant is located on the top of some rocks just above the sea .

The Hotel Borgo del Mare is a small family hotel a bit outside of the main part of Civitavecchia (longish half hour walk along a busy street). I will start by saying that I hold my breath every time i book a hotel in Italy since Italian hotels often look entirely different from their pictures and descriptions. The Hotel Borgo del Mare was a pleasant surprise.

We had arranged transfer from the airport in Rome for a one night stay prior to a cruise. The driver a pleasant young man, was there as promised and whisked us away. We quickly arrived around noon and checkin. The room was small, but having been to Italy before we expected small. It was immaculately clean, however, and that means a lot

The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked well without any noticeable noise (a huge plus for me) The hotel as mentioned is outside of the main part of town, but we welcomed the chance to walk after an overnight flight. So we picked up a sim card for our mobile and had lunch (pizza, what else) in town. The area immediately around the hotel is a bit residential and while not the most charming was safe and comfortable for walking in the evening.

The hotel has a restaurant and as there is only one good (but I suspect pricy) alternative we took a chance and ate at the hotel. As it turns out we made a great choice, the service and food were much better than we expected, not great, but quite nice and the dining area was quite congenial with a good wine selection.

Our bed was comfortable and we slept well. The one drawback is that our neighbors didn't seem to be the happiest campers and we could hear them arguing as the soundproofing is not the best (but to be fair it isn't the best in a lot of properties and is a common complaint for my wife and I).

Breakfast in the morning was varied and well prepared. They were running out of eggs when we arrived near finishing time, (10 am, if I recall correctly) but they happily fixed more for the folks that arrived after us.

The hotel has a free shuttle to the port and that too was a breeze.

I must note that Alessandro the evening desk clerk/manager was very helpful but then so was everyone else. We were impressed overall by the property and felt that we ago good value for our money. We would stay again and would (and do) recommend it to others.

What a quaint little place in such a breathtakingly beautiful little town. The views from this hotel are amazing and left me speechless! We went to stay a couple of days before our Mediterranean cruise, and ended up just falling in love with the hotel and area. My only regret was that we didn't stay longer! The people couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. Everything we wanted was just a few steps away. Highly recommend!!!

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the Mediterranean!

We were looking for a clean and comfortable place to stay near the port just before our cruise. Found this on Tripadvisor and now we know why it has such great reviews! The staff are attentive, friendly and knowledgeable, helping out with arranging taxis to town, shuttle service to the cruise lines and dinner on site. We had been travelling through Greece and Italy for a 10 days prior to our arrival and the most important task at hand was to get our laundry done before embarking on the ship. We were directed to a launderette in the town square and were able to complete this task while enjoying the surrounding shops and restaurants. The hotel restaurant had amazing food and options on the menu for everyone! The free shuttle to our ship the following day helped make the next adventure on our vacation a less stressful one! I would highly recommend this hotel and look forward to another visit in the future.

Stayed at the Borgo del Mare the night before our Mediterranean cruise. The Borgo del Mare was perfect...within walking distance to the town and beach, lovely rooms, friendly helpful service and the shuttle service to the cruise pier the next morning was a stress-free way to get to the ship and start our vacation. After the overnight flight from the States and taking the train from Rome with all the luggage, the Borgo del Mare was a peaceful place to unwind before the cruise.

We flew in from London and the van driver arranged by the hotel was waiting for us with a sign. Fine ride to the hotel. Our room was modern with comfortable bedding and good bathroom. Staff were very nice. The air conditioner was not working correctly and they immediately reset it and it was perfect. The room was a typical European style room, i.e. small but adequate for our belongings. Breakfast the next morning was elegant, plentiful and delicious. Our ship had a problem and changed the embarkation time. This threw off the van schedule but management was totally understanding and accommodating and arranged to drive us to the ship at a different time. There is a sundries store right at the corner, convenient. The only very minor drawback is that you cannot walk anywhere much because it is slightly out of the main town. We would certainly stay again and recommend the hotel to anyone heading to the Rome cruise port.
