Hotel La Conchiglia3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed in La Conchilia on the last night of our vacation. It was supposed to be near the FCO airport but it was on the wrong side and was actually quite a distance. The hotel was very run down and seemed to be on its last days. It is a nice design and has potential but is now a very sad place.
If you’re looking for a hotel to overnight near Fiumicino (Rome, FCO) Airport, you must choose from many in Fiumicino. This hotel also comes up on the search, but they have expanded the airport security perimeter, and its now 12 miles (20 km) from the terminal. The taxi starter won’t put you in a taxi until you agree to a 48 euro ($60 US) fare. In spite of listing an airport shuttle, they don’t really have one. Faced with that fare, they had no one to send for us and Marta refused to order us a local taxi. They do know a local person with a small car who can take 3 people at a time on return. He can only make 1 trip an hour, though, so since he already had a family at 9 AM we had to leave at 8 AM for an 11:25 flight. The hotel is a nice property, and Fregenae is a nice old beach resort town. If you were going to the beach for a week, it would be nice (although most restaurants looked closed in October). The staff (incl Giusy, at the front desk for 30 years), was a delight and the breakfast buffet was complete.
Exactly what we needed. Staff spoke excellent English and restaurants nearby across the street were excellent. The only thing is this is a beachfront hotel. It was clearly off season and the bathroom had a bad odor (like standing water under the shower floor (=Drain). Other than that, property is a little beat up, but perfect for that last night stay in Italy and low stress 10 Euro pp ride to airport in the morning. Oh, they charged us 1 2 Euro PP "city tax" which was a surprise, but not a terrible one.
Very deserted during the first part of October 2013. Rooms were older, but large including bath. Felt like we were the only guest there. A 20 Euro cab ride from the Rome Airport. Interesting though...and clean.
Stayed here one night because of its near airport location couple with the free on-site parking. Location is across from beach and in a higher end Roman suburb. Hotel had free rental bikes which made our afternoon arrival fun as it was a great way to explore this very private residential area before our early morning 25 minute drive to the car rental return at airport. Not sure how this location would work out in the summer when I imagine this area must be considerably more busy. Hotel building is a "modern design" but a little tired. Also, whoever thought that a see through glass wall to the shower bathroom area was a good idea ???
