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.
