perfect "day before departure" hotel out of Rome DaVinci (FCO) airport. Hotel is on the beach, with lot's of restaurants and shops within a block or two. Beats the early morning strain of taking the airport express train out of rome in the morning...

The hotel is in fact two buildings and we thought we'd stay on the one that looked the nicest. But we ended up in the grey building, which if you take a walk on the beach and look at the seafront with all the hotels, this is the one which is the ugliest. But, room was ok, breakfast ok, Welcoming ok. Wi FI NOT WORKING AT ALL. And the worse, the balcony looked like it could fall down, the one over us and on the one we had was full uf cracks and not a good ewperience to sit on. This should be done something about. But the location, on the seafront, coldn't been better

We were there for 7 nights.5min to reach th hotel fm Lido Centro train station,which was great.The welcoming was really bad, nobody explained nothing, we just rcvd the room key and arrivederci.What floor, what r our options, prices for safe box if needed, prices for the phone calls, where is the breakfast room, etc.The receptionists were talking very poor english.The worst thing was the bathroom:the head shower was on the wall, no shower cabin, just a dirty curtain, and no bathtub...the water was going straight in the floor.We had to buy slippers so will not stay empty feet on the floor.For a 3starts hotel, this is unacceptable.The wi fi in the rooms it's just a nice dream.In 7 days we connected for 5 min only. We had to stay in the lobby to be able to connect.The breakfast was indeed pretty poor if u're used with eggs, sausages or bacon : they had bread, cheddar cheese, some sweets, fruits, fruit yogurt and milk with cornflakes.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. WiFi is free, and the lounge is beautiful. They offer a breakfast that is GREAT, and the young ladies that wait on you are exceptional.(they make a great cappacino) We were lucky enough to get a beach view, which was breath taking.

Nice hotel, right across from the beach. There is a Burger King near the train station, bakery and restaurants along the beach (same street as hotel). The trains to Rome seem to leave about ever 20 minutes. Overall, it is a fair distance away from the Termini station, but can be good if you budget your time for the trip. The neighbourhood is quiet and seems safe. The room was quite large, we got a balcony with the sea view. The bed was comfortable and seemed new. You have to hand in your keys when you go outside of the hotel, but reception is open 24 hours a day, so it is not a problem. You should probably not count the included breakfast as much of a breakfast. The room is tiny (3 tables?), there is some orange juice, coffee, slices of bread, nutella, and jam.

15 min walk to the train station thru a short cut across a church. The hotel was located in front of the beach… v. nice 3 euro for entrance. As well 10min walk to the supermarket.The hotel was clean, we got a room with a nice balcony for sun bathing and nice view. The receptionist’s staff was v. Friendly he speaks English. Breakfast wasn’t good enough, they only offer coffee, tea sweet croissant, cakes could be better for a 100 euro rate/room. But all in all it was good we enjoyed our stay.

We thought the Ping Pong was an excellant value, nice clean accommodations. Excellant choice for an overnite stay close to the Airport when flying out from Rome. Overlooks the beach, and walking distance to restaurants. Ask for a room with a terrace! They should post more photos of the property, they would improve their business.

Location good for train to Rome and airport. Hotel is across the street from beach, not on it as the picture implies. Room was very basic and half the rooms on each floor are not accessible by the lift, you must go up (or down) one flight of stairs so if you need a lift, check first. If tired of Italian food, there is a steakhouse and a Chinese restaurant close by. No internet service.

The hotel room was fine, the people at the desk were very helpful and efficient. It was quiet as it was in October. My only suggestion is regarding the breakfast room - it would have been nice to have a bit more variety for breakfast, though we've been spoiled by other hotels. Compared to other hotels this was expensive for what it offered, but the price was comparable to its surrounding hotels. Also, we had to leave at the ungodly hour of 3:30 a.m. for our 6 a.m. flight, and had nothing to eat until on the plane at 7 a.m. because the hotel had nothing to offer us, and at the airport no food opened until 6 a.m.! It would have been thoughtful for the hotel to offer us at least some pre-packaged food and a coffee for our early a.m.!

The sunsets from the balcony of the hotel are breath-taking. The location of hotel is in walking distance of many excellent restaurants, in all price ranges. The scavi in Ostia Antica and Roma are close, by train or car. The plus is how close it is to Fiumicino Airport, if you have an early morning flight, it's so convenient.

We are repeat guests of the Hotel Ping Pong. We've always been treated with respect and with a smile. Seven years ago they were accomodating with a baby crib for our granddaughter. One of the more enjoyable features of the hotel is the very spacious veranda that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.

Despite the odd name, the hotel was great for the price. The breakfast was in the small cafe adjacent to the lobby and the barrista was fantastic. I have never seen anyone make that many Cappacinos that fast. When he has time he will put a nice decoration on the surface with the steamed milk. The location was great, right across from the beach. Room 208 is larger than some and room 106 has a large deck. For dinner we found one of the best restaurants in our whole tour of Italy. Again, it has a funny name but great service and even better food. It's called the "Eat and Go". Go out the door of the hotel, turn right, to to the second street, turn right, go one block and it's on the right set back from the street a little.

I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Rome and the Fiumicino airport. I had never been to Lido di Ostia but knew it has been an established summer destination for many in the Lazio region. I had just taken a cruise which ended in Civitavecchia and I was looking for a place close enough to Rome, the airport, and a beach. The city is run down, and the beach is not the prettiest in Italy, but the restaurants, bars and life around it make up for it. The hotel Ping Pong is very well situated, facing the beach and at the heart of all the action in the area. It's a small hotel and it doesn't have a lot of services, but I believe that it is good value for the price charged. The decor is modern and attractive and the rooms are kept impeccably clean. Because of all the action around it, day and night,it may be considered noisy for some. But I slept well. One can go to Rome for the day and return in the evening, and the trip to the Fiumicino airport took 30 minutes and cost 1.20 euros.

The desription of the Ping Pong in no way represents the actual experience. There is no restaurant; guests have to walk to the sister hotel, the Sirenetta, to use the restaurant. The photographs also look more like the Sirenetta than the Ping Pong. The balcony overlooking the sea is the only saving grace. The experience would be acceptable if cheaper, but the price would indicate a much better hotel.

Since the hotel was our last stop before flying out the next morning, we really did not have time to make a call as to the services offered. The location seemed to be great--right across from the beach. The man at the desk was very accomodating, letting us use his computer to check e-mail. It was also just a short walk to visit relatives that live in Ostia.

The Ping Pong is located on the beach in Lido d Ostia which is generally a run down beach resort. The rooms which face the sea are above a bar. The advertised airconditioning was non existent (we were there on Oct. 8th) causing us to keep our door open to the noise from below until 2 AM. Hence a very poor night's sleep. Lido d Ostia is a resort that has lost it's charm. The town is very nice, but the selection of hotels is very limited. The cost of $98.00E per night was way above the quality offered, as the room was spartan and lacked charm of any kind. Ditto for the lobby and breakfast facility which was in the bar. Although the hotel had posted non smoking signs in the lobby, the smell of cigarette smoke pervaded the rooms and due to the lack of air conditioning, we were unable to keep our doors closed. Unfortunately, there is not much better close to the airport. Any suggestions for a better alternative??

It's not 5 minutes from the airport as they say, more like 15 minutes. We could not get a taxi from the airport to take us (unless we wanted to pay the price for Rome) and had to struggle to call a local taxi. The hotel had arrainged a taxi in the morning to take us to the airport but it never showed up. Next time I would pay the price to stay at the airport Hilton.
