it was a cute hotel, good for one night before getting on the cruise ship, decent rooms, air conditioning was not great, only channels on the tv were in Italian which would be expected but since this is a cruise port city I thought there may be one anyway

Had it reserved for when we arrived by ferry from Barcelona. We did have a hard time finding it since it didn't coincide with the GSP coordinates we had. Once we found it. it was cute. At first reminded me of the Bates Motel in Psycho but once we were in the room, it was quite nice. A good sized...

We stayed here on our way to getting on a ship in the morning. Kind of out of the way, quiet, but not convenient if you wanted to go get dinner or a drink. There is restaurant on site, but a little pricey, excellent food. Room was ok, but flies EVERYWHERE due to location. Next time would look for a...

We just got off the ferry from Sardinia and so decided to stay in Civitavecchia for the night. Free on-site parking is what we look for in a hotel. This is a simple, one-storey, motel-like establishment. Room is spacious with basic furnishings, and the bathroom is nice, clean and big. Breakfast is not available, but still good value for money....

This was a really nice place to stay while waiting to board a ship the next day. The taxi ride was 20 euros, which I found a little high considering it was only 3 or 4 Kilometers from the train station. I read later that they provided a shuttle from the train station. It was not mentioned before. We did...

Good for an overnight between cruise and airport. Hotel simple and very clean. Restaurant attached was very very good but not open til 7 pm. Nothing else around to get a bite of lunch or breakfast. No transport to airport. Owners and staff very friendly .

The hotel (or motel as the signage there says), is removed from the city itself. The hotel provides a free shuttle to the port and from the train station, which was convenient. I would not choose the hotel if just visiting Civitavecchia as it is too far out of town. The beds were very uncomfortable, being squeaky metal frames with...

While this hotel is by itself out of the town, it was a good fit for our cruise as the owner gave a free ride directly to the ship. The room was simply appointed with no frills, but it was very clean with a nice restroom. As a bonus, the restaurant next door was great. I just wish they would...

This hotel is awesome!!! A bit out of the way from Civitavecchia but the owner will pick you up from the train station. Perfect stopover for the cruise we were taking. Once again, the owner took us to the port. So no taxi fares. The restaurant which adjoins the hotel has wonderful food and great staff. The owner even brought...

Great little hotel just outside the port. Very simple room with simple service. Great pick up and delivery service from port. You get just a quiet, very clean room with nice view. No amenities. Fabulous restaurant attached for lunch and dinner ( no breakfast ). TV only entertainment

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Samarcanda Hotel has been completely newly decorated this year and offers modern and comfortable rooms with air conditioning hot/cold fully manageable from the guest. All the rooms are equipped with 32" LCD TV with a wide choice of channels. The hotel's free private parking allows the guest to leave its car just few steps from the room. Located on Via Aurelia, Samarcanda Hotel is extremely easy to reach and its privileged position makes it an excellent base to reach in just five minute's drive both the city center, the highway to Rome and the ferry and cruisers port. Rome airport "Leonardo Da Vinci" is at about thirty minute highway from the hotel. A free shuttle service is provided, upon guest request, for the arrival/departure transfers from the hotel to Civitavecchia’s train station, ferry and cruisers port. The excellent price/quality ratio of Samarcanda Hotel is certainly one of the most favorable in the area, thanks to the family-run that allows to offer an excellent service at low cost.
