Our group enjoyed the stay in Ostia. We stayed in La Riva part of the hotel. First the negatives. There were a small number of fixtures which needed attention in the bathroom, but which were trivial in the context of the overall stay (but hence the 4* instead of 5*). Nothing to spoil our stay, and the positives made us forget these. The location was good, being just across the road from the beach, where there is free access. The buffet breakfast was good Italian, and should provide required fuel for most people, albeit that the coffee was from a Nescafe machine. However good quality (paid for) coffee is available from the bar in reception just a few steps away, if a genuine Italian coffee were absolutely required.
The garden was pleasant to sit in, and we had 2 light lunches, which were perfect for our needs, and we particularly enjoyed the salads. We used the shuttle to/from the airport, which was a real asset. Getting into Rome was also easy, 30 minutes away for €1.50 per person, from the station 5 minutes walk ("Stella Polare"). Above all the staff were very friendly, genuinely accommodating and wanting to help. We would highlight particularly the receptionists, the bus driver and the café staff, who were all so friendly and warm, we felt really welcome and at home. Well done! We will definitely return when in Rome.
