We overnighted here on the way back to Canada, it is just about 5 km from the Rome airport. The local cabbies charge 10 euro per person from the airport, 15 euro per taxi back. The hotel can set it all up for your return.
The reason we liked this is to see a genuine Italian fishing village for our last day in Italy. The Hotel is contemporary, Italian, spotless with very hospitable staff. The rooms are larger than usual for Europe. Everything worked. The place is in the suburbs, but--a 4 minute walk to the strip of cafes and restaurants along the canal waterfront--easy walking distance, but Quiet! There is an excellent restaurant right next door. The rates are high, like everything to do with a Roman holiday, but good value.
We found a wine store that sold wine from the tank for 1.3 to 1.7 euro per litre just 2 blocks away. (cheaper than water!). we went for the wine with the cork, and shared with some American travellers we met on the front step--the hotel staff accommodated our impromptu party with wine glasses and chairs/tables. They sold wine at 20 euro a litre but had no problem with byob.
This was a very good hotel experience and a nice way to leave a vacation, restful. The downtown is quiet, undeveloped, authentic. We watched the fishermen unloading their catch and selling it to the fishmarkets. BTW the Hotel has no restaurant, no bar. But they're close!
