Reader Barbara Kossy, who runs Sea Kayaking trips around Elba Island, writes about this business hotel situated in a quiet area of Fiumicino, the so-called Isola Sacra (Holy Island)., "Very much an Italian business hotel. I would use it again if I had to spend a night near the airport."
If you have to spend a long day at the airport, or several days, the area has some fine attractions. Fiumicino and the adjacent Ostia Lido are affordable seaside resort towns. Seafood lovers will eat well here. But there's more: See ancient Roman ruins or even pretend you're in the Caribbean, not so far offshore there's a Marine Protected Area with a reef to scuba!
