Decent Hotel but Nothing Special
Posted Jul 3, 2015
We booked this hotel because it had good ratings and recommendations on Expedia. We rented a car at Fiumicino airport, but we were returning it in Civitavecchia, and we decided to stay in this hotel the night before our cruise left. It had free parking, free WiFi and free breakfast, and seemed to be a pretty good value.
Staff at the hotel tried very hard to please, but the hotel was not that impressive. The location was a bit remote, up in the hills but with nice views. It was no problem for us since we had a rental car, but without a rental car we would have had to rely on the hotel to drop us off and pick us up in town, or just stay at the hotel. The WiFi was not usable in the room (and other guests said the same thing) so the only option was to go to the hotel lobby to use WiFi.
The breakfast was mediocre.
Lighting in the room was poor – there was only one spot bright enough to read a book.
On the other hand, the hotel was very helpful in getting us to the port for our cruise. They persuaded us to take the rental car back in the morning, and they then took us back to the hotel. They then took us and another couple on the shuttle to the port later in the day.
