Stay here

I needed a place near the airport so I could catch a very early flight. I arrived very tired and really wanted to rest up before the next phase of my travel which I knew would not be easy. Since I chose the hotel by its proximity to the airport, I was not expecting much. To my delight, the hotel is wonderful and it is a short walk from many places to eat on the waterfront. Best of all, the staff is wonderful. I could easily spend a week there.

Airport Hotel

We needed accommodations before flying back home and this hotel was listed as near the airport; however, it was much further away than we thought. The biggest problem was when we booked the hotel the amenities listed an airport shuttle and when we arrived we found out that it cost 30 euros to get back and forth to the airport. I would not recommend this for a layover.

Beach in Rome

We only stayed at this hotel one evening. It was difficult to find and the staffs english wasn't very good, so it was hard to get assistance getting there. The hotel lobby and room were very clean, though. It's right across the street from the beach. Unfortunately, our room faced the back of the hotel, which provided us with a view of very messy apartments rather than the beach.

Great overnight hotel

The hotel/room is simple but clean and useful for overnight stay. There was a young lady who is originally from Spain with a nose piercing that was extremely delightful, helpful, and knowledgeable in making our stay very pleasant. I believe her name might be Shiela, not sure. Either way, Barcelo Aran Blu is very fortunate to have her as a front desk employee. I highly recommend this hotel.

near the airport

We needed a place to stay near the airport with a car. This hotel met our needs. We didn't want to stay in an American chain hotel.

Ocean Front

Certainly not a 4 start hotel by any definitiion but still very nice. The Good:: Staff was great and so was breakfast. Closest hotel to the Marina (Across the street) and ocean front. Bathroom and Bed are modern and very nice. LAN internet only in rooms but was very fast. Bring your own CAT5 cable. Free garage parking. Mini bar fridge in room, but not much in it. My charge after 3 weeks for parking, internet, breakfast, minibar etc was only 70 Euro. Room rate in November was less than $100 USD. Weather was like a Florida winter. very nice only 2 days out of 21 with rain. Bad: only 1 iron in hotel and no ironing board. Electrical plug only reaches 3 feet from front door so impossible to iron. No water boiler or coffee in room. No air conditioner during winter months, Have to leave balcony door open. Adjoining rooms can see directly into your room from the balconys. Do not stay here unless you reserve an ocean front room. The other rooms are 15 feet away from apartment building and you will have to keep your doors and curtains closed. Also have to get door key recoded everyday. New internet code everyday. Elevators freeze up and doors dont always open.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

They did not deliever what the offered

Overall the hotel was fine. The only problem was they had not airport shuttle. They had promised a shuttle to the airport ande when we got there they said they no longer offered that. It cost and extra 60 euros to get to the transportation we needed. We would have never stayed there if we had known. We were real angry over that issue as would any person. I would recommend this hotel if you had a car.
