“Nice hotel but very far from the city!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Nice and clean hotel but unfortunality very far from the city and no taxi avaiable. But the beach and restaurants are close and the pool area was wonderful! Just perfect! I been here 2010 in august and I dont think it has change so much. If you want relaxing and swimming in the sea and in a nice pool, this is the hotel for you!

If the purpose with your stay is to visit Rome you should be aware that the hotel location is far from optimal. Without rental car you have to go by buss or train, and whatever you choose it takes 1 hour+ to reach Rome.

The hotel it self is of pretty good standard, Nothing special but a typical 3-4 star hotel. Nice restaurant, pool within the hotel premises and a nice and loooong sand beach no more than 100 meters from the hotel reception.

Ideally for a family summer holiday if the weather is nice so you can enjoy the beach. Except for the beach there is not so much nearby to brag about however.

Terracina as such is more or less divided in two city parts - old town and tourist hotel town.
The old town is like a traditional coastline town mixed of tradition and tourist attractions. Worth a visit!
The other part, where the hotel is situated, is however somewhat of a disappointment. Hotels and beach and that's it. The neighborhood at the backside of the hotel is shady and nothing that I can recommend.

The Terracina train station is situated in the old town and it takes approx 40 minutes reaching it if preferred walking. The train departures two times per day and you better be awake early since you need to catch the same train as the persons traveling to work in the morning. The train trip it self takes about 55 minutes.

All in all I could consider giving a 4 star rating depending of the travel purpose. But being a bit objective taking the location into consideration I would say a 3+ is more accurate.

Free Wifi and room size is a plus. The professionalism of the staff is mixed, some service minded and some not. The cleaning of the room was OK. Some missed spots but overall decant.

Family and summer time - recommended
Back packer, or off season - not recommended

We Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on our way to a wedding in sorrento. It is an immaculately maintained hotel 50 m from the beach. Breakfast was basic but well laid out. The hotel staff were all really helpful and attentive. We would definiately recommend this hotel

Everything about the Poseidon is excellent, from the rooms with balconies, the friendly and helpful staff and the overall ambience of the hotel. Breakfast was very well catered for and the special deal for dinner at a nearby restaurant was fabulous and very reasonable .

Room Tip: Upper floor has lift access .

The hotel staff are very friendly and the public areas and rooms are spotlessly clean. Breakfast is excellent but a shame there aren't sandwiches or rolls available for lunch as we were starving when we arrived after a long flight and coach journey. The nearest cafe or restaurant is a good 10-15 minutes walk away and the town centre is a taxi ride away. The beautiful sandy beach is just opposite the hotel but any other Terracina amenities are a bit far away. The rooms are very basic but ideal for a quiet holiday. The pool area is lovely.
