Take in sea views with a dip in the outdoor pool and immerse yourself in the beauty of your lush Mediterranean setting.

They should pay people to stay there instead of charging people to stay. Moldy bathrooms. Dirty rooms. This place has NOTHING in close proximity. I.E. shopping, restaurants etc. and we ended up at this place because the Hotel San Giorgio SCREWED us by taking our money and then days before we were to arrive told us they did not have a room for us and they arranged this other awful place for us.

Refusal to refund
Reviewed 2 months ago

After making an initial booking through Booking.com I contacted the hotel to enquire about transport from the airport. Because I was unable to get any response from them I cancelled the booking a month before we were due to stay at no charge according to Booking.com. The cancellation with no charges was confirmed by Booking.com via email.

On the date of the original booking the charges for the booking were taken from my credit card. Despite emails to this hotel and a series of emails backed and forward to Booking.com I was unable to have my money refunded. Three months later I still have not had my money refunded and strongly advise people not to book this hotel or use Booking.com as they do not honour their guarantees to refund.

Hotel on the beach , 10 minutes south of Civitavecchia.
Good situation with sea-and yachtharbor views. Recently part of the upscale French Mercure hotelchain.
Reception polite but a bit overwhelmed by the many cruise-guests.
Rooms average in size, beds with reasonable soft matresses airco, balcony. Small but clean bathroom.
Restaurant with limited choice of daily specials ; food was rather average ; service rapid and friendly.
Breakfast-buffet was excellent with good coffee.
All in all a average to good hotel but not up to the standards of Mercure !
Appreciated by cruisers for a 1 night stay before embarcation ; the hotel offers cheap shuttle-service to the harbour.

2 night business stay
Reviewed 4 months ago

This was only for a couple of nights and having stayed at Mercure Hotels in the past I sort of knew that standard would be decent but was unfortunately disappointed with what I can only describe as "sorry state" for this once upon a time probably a gem. The entrance to the hotel gave me a pre-warning of what was to come, the road/access was in dire need of attention. Checking in was very good with friendly staff and very helpful. The room (Superior double room) was like taken out of a 70's film set. No international TV channels and in general very dated. Bed was just about OK for 2 nights. The restaurant however was a great experience, especially if you enjoy seafood, the dishes was great and decent selections/choices A bit on the negative side they seemed to be understaffed as clearing tables etc. took very long and not very attentive. Also same in the breakfast restaurant, not very good with clearing tables, not topping up and refilling of the buffet which was OK in terms of selection. No means of cutting bread/rolls. Cheap juice, being in Italy I would expect freshly squeezed Orange juice. Soggy pastries and hot items for breakfast was cold half hour after breakfast opened. Staff in restaurant(s) in general very “laid back” but friendly. No condiments on the tables, had to ask for everything. With a proper makeover this Hotel would be a great addition to the Mercure brand and I would love to come back and see it.

Nice Pleasant Hotel
Reviewed 4 months ago

Nice Pleasant Hotel just a little far from the city. Remember the 4 Euro city tax and the 25 Euro cab ride to town.
Just a quaint little hotel just a little far out. Staff is friendly. Just don't eat the Octopus.
