The hotel staff is very friendly and willing to help in any way to make your stay pleasant. We did find the hotel to be farther from the center of Rome , from what was stated on the website. Travel time could take an hour to get to the center of Rome. There is not much around the water front...

Location: roughly ten kilometers from the Rome international airport it was a short drive to get to the hotel, using the nav system of the car takes you through the industrial area of Ostia. The hotel overlooks the sea, and is located a thirty second walk from the marina. It is walking distance to the centre of town but quite...

The room is microscopic relative to (standard) bed. There is no table, chair, or any other room to work on a computer. I had to seat on the toilet (this is the only available seating or power outlet in the room) to read my mail. Internet was extremely spotty, dropping regularly and very slow. Shower was large relative to Italian...

The strength of this hotel lies in the the friendly, helpful nature of almost all its staff. One exception was the receptionist who found it surprising that we wanted a door to our bathroom (the room we were allocated had just a pile of glass where the door should have been - her comment "Oh, yes, that is a problem...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at the back end of a business trip. The hotel is stylish, particularly the room decoration and the staff are friendly. It's a little basic, but it doesn't pretend to be a 5* place. Great views over the sea, close enough to walk to restaurants in the marina area or the town....

Good location just at the sea and the port. The bar and the restaurant was closed. You can hear each and every noise coming out of other rooms. The town is messy, people don't clean after their pets and just throw the garbage on the ground.

Close to airport and easy access to Rome and surroundings. Lovely room with terrace overlooking port and sparkly Mediterranean. Great breakfast and attentive staff. I would highly recommended mend this hotel for business or a break

There were bugs in the room. The room was so small that we had to block the door to open a suit case. The restaurant served reheated food, possibly leftovers. Ostia is not a town that you want to visit.
