Hotel recommendations for Civitavecchia

Recommended Posts

Looking for a hotel to stay in the night before boarding in Civitavecchia. Something really close to the port that offers a shuttle would be great. - Thanks

 

Edited: One where you can see the ship in the morning would be a real bonus.

I'll Suggest Hotel Borgo Del Mar.  A Bit  outside  of town but they provide the shuttle for you to the ship and they also have a reasonable priced shuttle from FCO.   The food in  their restaurant is fantastic and the rooms are great.  Check them out  on trip advisor as we have stayed there twice.

Hotel San Giorgio is close and has a shuttle to the ship.

We had a booking there last year which we made months in advance and several weeks before the arrival date we received an email saying that we had no reservation as they had overbooked. Be careful!

And you are not the only ones who've reported that problem with San Giorgio. It happens too often with them to be a simple error....

The closest one to the port is the Hotel Traghetto, which is literally across the road from the port buses. You can see all ships in port, particularly if you have one of their balcony rooms.

 

It's a basic hotel with a very simple breakfast, but it's also very reasonably priced. Don't expect the same standard of facilities/comfort as many US hotel chains but It's fine for somewhere to lay your head, very close to the port and with a very friendly staff.

we have booked Alibrandi Palace and they offer transfer from FCO airport to hotel with local taxi firm for 130euros

and a small additional fee for shared shuttle to ship next morning

Thanks for your reply I will certainly have a look at it. You mention port buses being right outside, is this the best way to get to the ship?

It looks very nice. I am thinking about booking that one also.

Thanks for sharing.

windsurferfirst - the port buses are the only way to get to the ship, apart from walking, which is some distance with luggage.

You can also arrange for a taxi.

From a hotel really close to the port? Or from the station? Glad to hear there are more opportunities to book taxis in Civitavecchia now? Our experience has been that they are few and far between.

They may be difficult to flag down independently, but a hotel can arrange one for you if you request it.
