My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two days prior to taking a Transatlantic cruise from Rome to Fort Lauderdale, FL. The hotel is located in Civitavecchia about 1.5 miles from the main part of town, the railroad station and the port entrance.
The second floor (first floor in Europe) room we had was small, but well appointed and comfortable. It looked down on to a beautiful terrace and views of the Mediterranean. There is an elevator from the downstairs lobby so no problem for anyone with mobility issues. The TV did have English programming and we were able to get FOX News.
The hotel has a restaurant with wonderful Italian meals and good service. Depending on the weather, one can enjoy a delightful meal on the terrace as well as inside the restaurant. Food and wine prices were reasonable, and after along trip to Rome from the United states, it was delightful to not have to leave the premises after checking in to search for a restaurant.
The hotel offers a transfer service from Rome airport for a fee (which we did not use) and offers free transportation to the Cruise Port. The great thing about their shuttle to the port was that they were able to take us directly to our ship and get our baggage efficiently handled by the ship baggage service. There is a small store on the corner of the main street near the hotel that has a limited selection of wine, chocolates, etc. if one wishes to purchase these items prior to boarding their cruise.
I only had two small complaints about the hotel and they involve location. Its not practical to walk into the main area of Civitavecchia if one wants to take a train to Rome or visit the main shopping area, requiring a taxi to get there. Also, one cannot easily walk down to the sea because access is blocked by a large soccer stadium. Also, whenever there is a soccer game, the area can be quite noisy. These are not major issues for anyone who is only staying overnight waiting to get on their cruise the next day. The location was the only reason I did not rate the hotel with 5 stars.
