“Should give it one star....”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Good location, and nice view of the harbour.. ok thats the good things out of the way. Oh and good internet, but surprised you have to pay for it at a hotel but when you buy a $1 Euro coffee at the local Caffe you get it for free..

Bed, like a cinder block, do not think I have slept, or should I say not slept in a bed that is hard. The way they reduce water usage in this hotel is to make the shower impossible to get into... Doors have clearly been broken for years..
Door stop right by toilet to you kick it every time you go to the loo..
TV smaller than the average postage stamp..
Noisy and no double glazing.. Hence the second reason for lack of sleep..
Air Con broken and not working at all, likely been like that for a while.

They have tried with some of the rooms furnishings, as it was newly painted, newish furniture and new drapes..

We booked this hotel in January 2013 for a one night stay. We wanted to be close to the seaport as we were going on a cruise the next day. When getting to the hotel we were told our room was unavailable but they booked us at another hotel. This newly booked hotel was 10 miles away and in the middle of nowhere. Only one lousy restauant within walking distance. So if you want to take a chance book a reservation at this hotel and RUN THE RISK OF THEM NOT HONORING IT.

The hotel is located very near the station, and not far from the free shuttle bus stop where you take the bus for the cruise ship. The outside look is not encouraging, but insie it looks great. Our room was large, clean, the bed comfortable. Breakfast was very good, service great. Internet in the room works well and is very cheap (1 E/1 hour). Good for our purpose: to stay overnight before embarking on the ship.

Room Tip: a room to the sea front and with a small balcony, great view!

We arrived at 11 pm due to flight delays in the January snow. We checked in tired and hungry and thirsty to be told by the night porter that there was no food or drinks available and all the local restaurants were closed, so we went to our room, which was a beautiful suite at the front of the hotel, and found there was no kettle!! However we were soon in bed more tired than hungry now and slept like babies! Delicious breakfast and speedy check out but the initial disappointment still remains.

Room Tip: high floor at the front ,with food and drink supplies brought in.

We stayed here before a cruise; due to a mixup in our plans we were in Civitavecchia for 3 days, and did not expect to enjoy it that much. Wrong! The town is delightful and the hotel very pleasant. Our room was large and overlooked the water. The staff members were all friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet is extensive and a great benefit to Americans accustomed to more than the European coffee-and-roll. The train station is a convenient block away but the trains are electric so there's no train noise. The cruise port is several (flat) blocks away in the other direction; after watching throngs of folks walking/wheely-ing from train to port we decided to do it ourselves, with no problem. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Best rooms are higher floors and at the front.

Pros
Center of town
5 min walk to train station or cruise shuttle area
Very spacious rooms
Decent breakfast

Cons
Dated furniture (shabby chic) and sparsely decorated
No safe in room
Tiny shower

For American standards it's a 3 star hotel. There is no wow factor to this hotel. Nothing special you'd mention to your friends of family.

We stayed at Hotel De La Ville in Civitavecchia prior to our cruise on the Mediterranean. Because of its position, just 2 minutes walk to the main port of Civitavecchia, this hotel it's the best choice if you want to have a rest before boarding the next day to a cruise. The city itself has nice little harbor cafes and Italian restaurants with a view of the sea. De La Ville has nice spacious rooms and helpful staff. Don't expect an all you can eat breakfast, it's mostly basic but fresh and just right to start the day.
Have a go and book this hotel if you're visiting Rome's main harbour, in Civitavecchia or if you're there prior to a cruise.
