Not what we expected

2 out of 5
by from NYC
Posted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: Nothing!
Cons: Staff, airport shuttle, arrival.
Location: Ostia Antica's castle, and nearby train station to and from Rome center.
Huge hassle, confusion, and expense to get to hotel from airport. No one from hotel available to greet us upon arrival. Person who checked us in was quite unfriendly...don't think she smiled once. Turned out to be a Bizarre stay...was it a farm, hotel, B&B, or residence? Mimo (the chef) was extremely wonderful, helpful, and kind...he was the only good thing about the stay. Got eaten alive by mosquitos. Just happy it was for one night. Should have slept at the airport, honestly.

Not near the airport

We ended up not staying here for the final night of our Italy trip because we were quoted 60 euro cab fare from theairport to the hotel and none of the taxi drivers knew where it was. So we canceled and walked to the Hilton.

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: we only stayed over night so cant answer this one
nothing like the picture on the email the taxi driver had no idea where to go neither did any of the others cab drivers, it cost more to go to and from the venue than the cost of the hotel if you can call it that , it was not well sign posted , and down a beaten track , I would never recommend this venue to any one

Perfect for the airport

3 out of 5
Posted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: Great for the airport and good value
Not what you expect when you arrive - it's an agriturismo which I don't remember seeing in the advert and not what you expect inside - nice and very clean. No shower curtain is a pain but we stayed two nights in the two room apartment which was very comfortable. Breakfast is just ok. A bit disappointed we had to pay 10 euros a night for our little yorkie for the extra cleaning which took about 5 minutes on the first morning. If you are in to pets there are some very friendly cats, dogs, horses, rabbits and a goat. 40 minutes into Rome with one change for the Metro arriving at the Coliseum. Brilliant for the airport only 15 minutes away and would recommend it.

Beautiful country setting, very peaceful and quiet

5 out of 5
by from San Diego, CA
Posted Oct 8, 2013
Pros: The location in the country was very peaceful and quiet, and the room was very well appointed.
Cons: The host needs someone who speaks English to communicate with guests.
Location: Ancient ruins of Ostia Antica and the castle.
We loved this place. Within walking distance to the castle and ancient ruins, and restaurants. The host was very accomodating, and since we were leaving very early in the morning, she gave us a care package for the breakfast we were going to miss. The only concern was she spoke no English, so we had a little trouble communicating, and the price of dinner I think was 30 euros per person which was out of our price range.

Friendly, family feel:)

Pros: The friendly staf, and the dinner was amazing!
Cons: The price for dinner was a little expensive, but it was a lot of food and great service, so I don't know what could be improved there, but the prices.
Location: The little town is nice, but not much to do other than visit the castle and go to the beach by bus.
Well I actually booked this place because I thought it was really close to the airport and we could save on transportation, but we actually had to spend more to get a taxi there. However, this place was so cute! Very friendly staff and an amazing dinner prepared for us by them! Since we had to leave very early in the morning they gave us a breakfast basket:) I would recommend that anyone who stays here have a car to get around. I is probably a great place for families that want to have space and let the kids run around.

Charming cottage/hotel in the woods

4 out of 5
by from Los Angeles
Posted Jun 8, 2013
Pros: What I enjoyed the most about this hotel was the tranquility of the forest, yet only a 20-minute train ride away from Rome.
Cons: Wi-fi only works in the dining area and not inside the cabins.
Location: The best way to get to Rome is walking a mile to the train station and take the train to Rome.
This place is in the middle of the woods and was not captured by my GPS navigator, which led me to a wrong location.Thankfully, a friendly pizza delivery guy allowed me to follow him in his car to the correct location. We drove through an unpaved road through the woods before reaching the hotel. The office to the reception desk was closed, so we were greeted by the chef and he gave me the keys to my room. The rooms were beautiful. The bathroom was spotless with a lovely large bathtub and all essential amenities. The nights were very comfortable, tranquil and quiet until the rooster wakes you up at six am! Outside of the hotel are various farm animals including a pig, several horses, cats, and a very friendly dog. My 4-year old son and I loved this place so much that we wanted to stay there a few days longer. The backyard also includes a play structure with a swing and see-saw which is perfect for toddlers. The best experience at the hotel were the dinners provided by chef. I have been to the best restaurants in California, and this chef definitely ranks with the best. The cons: Driving through this town is a horrible experience. I recommend leaving the car at the hotel, walking a mile to the train station, and taking the metro train to Rome. Unfortunately, the hotel is in the middle of the woods, so exiting into the streets is about a mile walk. Overall, if you love nature and the comfort of a great hotel in the middle of the woods, this is a great place!
