We stayed for three nights, a touch of luxury on the final leg of our Via Francigena pilgrimage into Rome. The breakfasts were fabulous, the evening meals were lovely although a bit pricey. Free shuttle to and from the local station is a great bonus as there are regular trains in and out of the city centre.
A family of 5, 2 rooms, we used the hotel for our last night before a flight. It was 1 minute from the highway and 25 min from the airport with a car. No morning traffic at 7 AM (August).
This hotel includes a strange mix:
It has all regular hotel facilities, furniture etc. and a welcoming staff 24H.
Yet, it is kept in some twilight zone - we received a very reasonable and clean hotel room but the room had a feeble plastic toilet seat that one can probably buy in a 1$ shop and sand toilet paper unfit for humans (bring your own). One of the two elevators did not work. Breakfast and breakfast room were not great but it was there. The room suited large groups with huge tables and no privacy - it was crowded by the groups that were in the hotel. Coffee was from a machine - the worst we had in Italy.
Seems like the hotel is kept at rock bottom costs although it is a full size hotel - apart from us there were 2 groups from the far east and no other families or couples that we could spot. Overall, since we paid relatively little at high season, and since the hotel was 25 min from the airport, we did not expect much - so we were pleased.
We stayed in the Hotel for two days, Hotel manager and one male reception staff very good and helpful, lady in the reception was had a very bad attitude, break fast usual type in time, restaurant staffs good and helpful, this hotel could be ideal if you travel by your own transport, as it takes an Hour to go to Rome city centre, and most of them dont speak English that makes life more complicated.
We first found it hard to find the hotel, but when we did we was surprised . two story apartment, with kitchen and lounge. If you have no transport it could be difficult, but if you have a car or motorbike, the parking is very secure and the gates are locked. About 3 alms from the train station and town. Really good for the budget traveller

would rate hotel a little higher but the toilet ran most of the time, the resteraunt was closed the entire time which was one of main reasons we selected the hotel, & the two twin beds pushed together with very flat mattress that kept separating all night sucked. Staff did not speak English but they tried their very best which was nice but very frustrating. Please remember to bring outlet converters/adapters. The posted reviews were very helpful. The views are stunning, the rooms clean, but really you get a bed & a washroom, nothing else. There is not even a phone in the room & if you are use to washcloths, bring your own because they do not have any. There is a small 13in TV but there is only Italian channels. They will tell you that there is English ones but MTV only has English sometimes. Breakfast was toast (the size of crackers) tea & coffee. No drinking water-if you dontt want club/seltzer water remember to say flat/still water. Best feature is that the bus is literally right outside hotel & runs until 11 on most nights. There is nothing, I mean nothing to do locally so be prepared to use the bus often. Even the resteraunts that were close had sketchy hours and was hardly open. Load up on drinks and snacks at the grocery stores that the bus can take you to. Its the 32. We did finally catch the Le Isle resteraunt but they spoke no English and the menu was in Italian. Needless to say we ordered French Fries. lol. Oh and one day they do not serve meat so be sure to check.

This really is a village. Our little hut was very small, next to no walking room but the bed was comfy. WiFi is limited to certain areas. The showers were beyond wonderful and everything was pretty clean. The bar at the top of the hill is a great place to meet people from all over the world. Nice place and very cheap!
Historically an important Roman road that broke off from Via Flaminia, Via Cassia today is a largely residential area, along with the nearby area around Via della Giustiniana. Part of Via Cassia borders a segment of the striking Veio National Park, with its ancient Etruscan ruins including the ancient town of Veii, beautiful woodlands, and varied wildlife.
