Many travelers who are visiting Rome, Italy, choose to fly into Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, widely known as just Fiumicino Airport. Located about 40 kilometers (25 miles) outside of the city center of Rome, you will most likely land here when flying with the larger international carriers, especially when traveling overseas.

Fiumicino is actually a wonderful tiny town, situated along the Mediterranean Coast, and is a popular getaway for Romans. The airport is a great place to stay overnight if you happen to have an early flight out of Rome, or run into a situation where you have an extended layover. The Hotel Tiber in Fiumicino is a pretty affordable stay right on the waterfront, and will have you at the airport, ready for your flight, within 15 minutes. Let’s have a closer look at this hotel.

Fairly new 4-star hotel

The Hotel Tiber is a fairly new hotel that was built back in 2011. You will adore the immaculate surroundings and first-class amenities that this 4-star hotel offers. The interior has a real modern retro feel to it, with white circular seating areas, old sepia photos hanging on the walls, and earth tones, such as off-white, subdued shades of brown, and the green plant life placed throughout.

Check in starts around 1pm, ending at midnight, and check-out is at 11am. However, the hotel does offer express check-in and check-out if you give advanced notice. The staff is extremely friendly, and will make your stay as comfortable as possible, so don’t ever hesitate to contact them if there is anything you need.

Affordable accommodation in a prime location

The hotel has 64 rooms, all of which are chic and elegant, with more vibrant earth tones used in the décor and bedding. You can choose from the standard double that sleeps up to three people, the family triple if you’re traveling in a group of four, or the superior room that also holds four people, but is a little bit more spacious.

The prices are extremely affordable for a hotel located on the waterfront, and give you the choice of the standard payment or the special rate, which is prepaid and non-refundable. The rates start out at 106 EUR (120.82 USD) and top out at 180 EUR (205.17 USD) per night. Each room is soundproof, allowing for a wonderful night’s sleep on the soft, premium bedding. I especially liked this too, because you won’t be able to hear your neighbor if they like to watch television late at night.

You have complete control of the climate in the room, access to the minibar, and if you need to finish up any last minute business before your flight takes off, there’s a desk for your laptop as well. The private restrooms are gorgeous, and have a nice white orchid sitting atop the sink. There’s plenty of space for your personal toiletries, as well as the shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and body wash that is provided by the hotel. There is a bathtub, as well as a rain water shower head, and alongside the toilet you have a bidet.

Great food and wine pairings

Laundry facilities are available for you to use if you need to freshen up your clothes before your flight, and for those traveling for business there is a conference room, as well as meeting rooms throughout the vicinity.

If you get hungry, or wish to pick up a snack for the journey, there is the Latitude 41 Restaurant serving up delicious Italian fare. You can also sit back and relax with a view of the fishing harbor and the glittering Mediterranean Sea at your side. If you’re in need of a stiff drink, or would like to enjoy a glass of wine, the Latitude 41 Bar serves classic favorites.

Close to major attractions

If you happen to be staying for longer than just one night, there are some noteworthy sites extremely close by. In fact, the public park, Villa Guglielmi, is right next door to the hotel, and makes a great place for a morning jog or an evening stroll. Ostia Antica is an extremely large archaeological site with many ancient Roman artifacts, and even its own amphitheater.

If you’d like to go, just ask the hotel staff which bus to take as it’s only 6.6 kilometers (4.10 miles) away, and it’s definitely a trip worth taking. Before catching your flight, make sure you indulge in the complimentary breakfast buffet that has a variety of lighter fare options, such as cereals, toast, eggs, bacon, mixed fruit, coffee, and tea.

If you don’t have time to sit and eat, the staff will even pack you a complimentary take away bag for the plane ride. The cost for the airport transfer is 6 EUR (6.84 USD) per person, plus Fiumicino Airport is only 4.6 kilometers (2.85 miles) away, making it a stress-free ride.
