This is a an apartment hotel near the airport run by I presume, Mr Luigi. Hotel is near Ciampino Airport. I understood from Booking.com reviews that the hotel provides pick up and drop at the airport. The telephone number given by Booking.com just rings and there is no answer. I got in touch with a locallly living friend and he gave me Mr Luigi's mobile number. I contacted Mr Luigi and he agreed to pick me up at the airport as my flight was due nearer to midnight. Mr Luigi speaks basic English. Anyway, he picked me up and brought me to the hotel. It is a nice apartment hotel in a quiet residential area.
When I booked this hotel through Booking.com the advertisement didn't say anything about payment in cash. After showing me the 2 bedroomed apartment, Mr Luigi asked me for the payment up front and for the pick up at the airport. I was prepared to pay by creditcard and Mr Luigi insisted that the advertisement says it clearly. Fortunately I had enough cash to pay him for the entire stay of 3 nights and also pick up and drop back at the airport. Thank god I was not staying there for the entire week.
Mr Luigi is a nice man and a very helpful, pleasant natured man. He showed me around and said there was enough milk, juice and tea, coffee for my stay there. Breakfast is not included in the hotel. If the advertisement says it includes breakfast - it isn't. You have to find your own breakfast.
The room(s) was/were very comfortable and and the bathroom was very clean and modern. I only occupied one room.
Bit of a distance from any public transport. On the first day I had to walk about 20 minutes to the nearest supermarket. I managed to get everything milk, juice etc I wanted for the entire stay there. When I got back to the apartment, I tried to cook on the gas hob. The hob wouldn't ignite. I had to call Mr Luigi. He came within a few minutes and explained that I needed a lighter to ignite the hob and gave me a cigarette lighter. Next day he brought a gas hob lighter.
Weather during the day was very hot and the fan didn't help and there is no air conditioner in the room. Apart from these my stay was pleasant.
Mr Luigi dropped me back at the airport. He is a very nice man running this apartment hotel. In conclusion, I will not probably stay there again.
