This establishment is within walking distance of the ruins of Ostia Antica and only a very short drive to the airport, both good reasons to stay here for a day or two in what I would describe as a "rustic, tired" environment. Be forewarned - you are in the flight path of descending planes which means your sleep may be interrupted several times during the night.

We were very lucky as there was no one else staying so we had in effect a suite of elegantly furnished rooms to ourselves. The 4 course dinner was excellent. We enjoyed the farmlike surrounds, and patting the pig and horses. Great location a short walk from Archeological site.

We stayed over one night. Had to return a rented car and catch a plane early in the morning, so it was conveniently situated only 10 minutes by car from the airport. It is a nicely done up old farmhouse (still active - with horses, pigs,etc.) quiet and out of the way, full of atmosphere (wake up to the call of roosters...) and not a single airplane went by even though we were so close to the airport. Breakfast was OK and basic. Good cappucino was served as well as cereal, yogurt and cakes. No eggs, no bacon, no cheeses. The place is delightfull and was a lovely way to say "Arivederci Italia !"

I would recommend this Guest House to anyone. Countryside room is more like an apartment. Very peaceful after a long overnight flight. Incredible decor - loved the rustic, antique furniture. Breakfast was good, if you like pastries and sweets. Had trouble finding the place. Best hint: Look for the archway with the tower in the background - the reception is to the left of the archway, behind those great doors. Wished we could have stayed there for more than one night.

We had booked a room but were given a little apartment. It was in a 600 year old building, right next to the castle and just one block from the Ostia Antica scavi. The apartment looked out on the charming Piazza Rocca. It was charmingly furnished; the bed was comfortable; the hosts were very kind and helpful.The breakfast buffet was very good. I would definitely stay here again. My daughter and I hated to leave.

apparently,everything should fit and work out : touristic spot, old fortress, typical places, warm welcome,train connection to Roma. Yet,the price doesn't fit with what is offered comparing to lots of homes we've been to in Italy, specially noise from cars and airport,and cleanliness; a little shabby area as well. Being outside Roma was not such a good idea as we might have thought. Ostia isn't so worthy a visit. Clientele being catered there should be hip and cool, younger than us, with a lower price,specially in low season as we were.

We stayed one night. And it was very nice once we adjusted our expectations. One bathroom did not have a shower (we had expected 3 full baths), one room had only a twin (we had expected at least a full in all) and this maybe my misreading but the price was not per room but per person making the cost double what was expected. But we were given a suite so there was a sitting room which was very nice and unexpected. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. You really must have a car as it is located quite a way back from the town along dirt roads making it wonderfully quiet. The town is charming with a superb restaurant and wonderful ruins.

We are a family of 5, 1 boy of 16, and girls of 13 and 8. This resort was a wonderful place. We were in Italy 2 weeks and this was the last place we stayed. It ended up being the perfect way to end our vacation. I wish we had been able to stay longer and explore the ruins and all of the opportunities provided at the resort. We had the country meal with Adele. Not only was it the best food our our entire vacation, it was so much food. I think of her as the Italian grandmother I never had, but wished I did. She extended the most gracious hospitality to us. She is an excellent chef and host. Our accomodations were more than what we were expecting. We were so pleasently surprised when we opened the door. It felt like an Italian Country home. The staff was very pleasant and very accomodating. It seemed that everyone wanted to make sure that our stay was wonderful and everything went well. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Background: renting a car in Italy is more expensive since credit card companies cannot pay the additional indeminity, so renter must. Second, it's 20 percent less to pick up in Rome than at the airport; however, if you pick up in Rome you can still drop it off at the airport and not pay the additional fee. That is what we did. As a consequence we needed a place to stay (four of us traveling together)near the airport the day before departure. We searched the web and mostly found seaside resorty sorts of places (a bit tacky) is Ostia Lido, etc. Then we found Rodrigo de Vivar--what a surprise! This is an unusual farm/quasi-resort. The property is large and complex with many buildings in a beautiful quasiagricultural, equestrian setting. We were housed in a low structure far to the rear (you need a car) to the main area; the rooms were luxurious and interesting. I could not recommend it more highly, and indeed we were very close to the airport. You would never know that you were so close. The downside? Entrance to this oasis is through Ostia Antiqua. The town is exceedingly busy and the main street is apparently a primary thoroughfare for morning and evening traffic. If you get lost you'll have a challenging time finding your way back. The resort's website gives very good instructions. You'll need navigators reading and guiding you while you drive! I had three--challenges inside and outside the car. Still, we found it the first try. Once in the bourg, you're home free. But Ostia Antiqua can be daunting. Note: you could see the Roman ruins from our rooms, which were adjacent. Unfortunately, we were there Monday, when the ancient site was closed. One other downside: we did not eat at the resort's restaurant, which I have no doubt is excellent. However, 40 euros for dinner (or 30 for a light supper) is far too expensive. We felt somewhat as if we were hostage, considering how difficult it was to get around in Ostia proper (that was when we discovered how to make u-

This hotel is not like any other hotel. It is located in an old walled city next to a castle, and it also has secluded places to stay out in the country. We chose the city and the only bad thing I have to say is that the church bells rang very early in the morning. The ruins are well within walking distance. The town (outside the walls), however, is not too exciting so you need a car to get to more excitement if that is what you are looking for. There are two reccommended restaurants in the area. Getting to the airport is easy if you are driving or the hotel will offer a shuttle. The hotel is a family run business and they do their best to make your stay as happy as possible.

We had an early morning flight from Fiuminico airport, so this was a great choice. Also the ruins are only a 2 minute walk from the hotel, and well worth a visit. During summer months, it can get hot, and there is no a/c. Breakfast is nothing special. Overall, excellent value.

The "hotel" is historic, unique and in an interesting location, and the "Castle" is a stones throw across the courtyard. All quite charming, except there is no air conditioning and on a hot July night even with the fan blasting, we had to open the windows. Our courtyard is also public walkway and so it was quite noisy late into the night. The Church is just across the courtyard too, and the church bells in the early morning further robbed us of our much needed sleep. On the bright side, the staff could not have been nicer, our room was lovely and included a living room so we had plenty of space and a nice continental breakfast. Pope Julius's Castle is worth the tour, and the ruins of Ostica Antica are well worth an afternoons exploration. This place is best with a car, but the train station is close by and about a 40 min ride to Rome. You have to take a taxi to the airport(there is no direct train)negotiate before hand, we settled on $20.

Room was extremely hot and uncomfortable I asked for a fan, it did not make much difference. Outside in the piazza there was a large group of noisy teenagers who gathered every night.There were lots of washing racks around the front door and a very strong smell of cats in the hallway - the neighbouring house had around 20 cats living in it. The room was very clean, the breakfast was 1st class, but the heat in the room and the surroundings were not acceptable to us. I should mention the reception staff are very friendly and helpful.

The only problem we had was getting from Fiumincino airport to the hotel. The taxi driver at the airport did not know where to go. They are probably expecting to drive to central Rome. I lent him my mobile phone to ring so he could find out where to go. When we got there in the town of Ostia Antica even locals were not sure where the Piazza was as it is in fact inside the walls. He let us off outside and we walked around inside till we found it. So directions could be improved. It should clearly say Ostia Antica rather than just Rome. Everything else was wonderful. The beautiful site, next to the castle and the advice given on the excavations and restaurants was fantastic.

Driving directions are needed. The place is inside a courtyard and the plaza is not marked outside (we had to ask people where it was). Checkin place hard to find because number 18 is hidden behind the open door-shutter. Web site says: telephone available: there is no telephone in the room. Heating did not work.

The experience was outstanding and the help and hospitality of Viviana was wonderful. The apartment was excellent, but the only "negative" which was not problem, but it was noticeable, is the the apartment had a musty smell that indicated that the building and furnishings were old and probably needed a good cleaning. A treatment with a room air freshner/deodarizer would solve this observation. The location being next to Ostia Antica and Pope Julius II former fortress/castle was fantastic. We would return to this resort. Thanks, and I love the venere web site. I have already planned and booked our next trip with Venere. Kind regards, Ralph Jugo South Miami, FL. USA

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Rodrigo de Vivar.

The location of Rodrigo El Tovar was ideal for what we wanted to do: walking distance to the Ostia Antica ruins and reasonably close to Fiumicino airport. The location and situation inside a medieval borgo was charming and interesting for us but may not be everyone's cup of tea. There were cats and dogs everywhere, and their litter was an obstacle course. The little streets of the borgo, the church and castle are picturesque and give one a feeling of being back in the early Renaissance. The little church is a popular place for weddings, and several took place while we were there. The feeling of antiquity was further enhanced by the furnishings in our comfortable suite. We visited in Autumn, but we would think that conditions in the borgo and in our suite could be a bit stifling in hot Summer weather. The resort and agritourism aspects of Rodrigo El Tovar were at a different location which we did not visit. There were a couple of excellent restaurants in and around the borgo, but very little in the way of shops. Lido di Ostia, however, was full of shops and not very far away. The staff was friendly and responsive to our needs. Their were no public spaces in the hotel, at least not in the immediate area, but we did not need them. On balance, we were pleased with our stay and were glad that we had selected Rodrigo El Tovar over other choices in the area for our short stay.

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. After 3 exhausting days in Rome, this was paradise. The location of the country house was just out of town down a beautiful tree-lined back road. It is an enjoyable walk past the quaint old farms back into town and the reception area, but they will provide a shuttle whenever needed. The rooms were perfect--antique furniture, down comforters, spacious--as charming and comfortable as can be. The surroundings included many "play areas for the children": a large wood pile, a tree fort, the horses out in the pastures, back roads for bike riding and the Tiber river only a short distance away. The staff were so very helpful and welcoming. They provided us with bikes free of charge during our entire stay and opened up their lovely restaurant for my husband's birthday. They served a wonderfully authentic, homemade Italian meal (with an emphasis on simplicity to please the children). We explored the ruins at Ostia Antica and spent two days shell collecting at the Mediteranean beaches in Lido nearby (2-3 train stops away). We could have just as easily taken the train into Rome for the day. We were given impressive guide books on Ostia Antica and Rome, and the children were pleased to find two Roman coins left in the room as a gift for them before departure. We all enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend the country house to any families in need of a break from the standard Roman holiday. We did miss the instructors for horse riding and archery (due to the Easter holiday) but would have enjoyed this as well had it been available. A special thanks must go to Francesca at reception for all of her help and attention to detail that made our stay so enjoyable. We do hope to return one day.

What a treat. After a week in Rome, we were headed for something a bit quieter. The ruins of Ostia Antica, and this country resort. I had tears in my eyes,,,and I looked out of the window of my bedroom, the view nothing but a castle. Amazing,,,,,an American Flag in the room. The feeling of being welcomed, was more than could be imagined. The little cottage was beautiful. The bathroom beautiful, the beds, beautiful, the towels, amazing. The help was wonderful from the office, and the quaint courtyard of the castle, a tiny Italian town in itself. There were delicious resturants, mere steps from the door. Welcoming neighbors, and a church, not 100 yards across the court yard, where we witnessed 2 beautiful brides be come wives. A tour of the castle, and not even 2 minutes walk from the entrance to the ruins of Ostia Antica. These ruins could likely surpass anything in Rome itself, for being as intact as they are still. We were 20 minutes from the sea, 2 miles from the airport,,,with breakfast rolls, and coffee, delivered to the room, at a time of our choosing. A mini fridge with cold drinks and snacks, were a nice touch,,,upon arrival. A beautiful fireplace, books to read. Charming,,,and would stay here again in a moments notice. Highly recommended. Extremely afforadable. I miss it already.

We felt the location and proxmimity to Rome and transport links very good. The tranquil setting was lovely. We were disappointed with the breakfast as the description indicated there would be items to 'make your breakfast' when there was only coffe and brioche. We understood there were facilities but were unable to access them we therefore only had the option to use the accommodation we were staying in (1 bed suite) The kichen let the property down and we felt that although we had the option to use the kitchen facilities at additional cost the electrics and gas were unsafe. The gas pipe was connected via a jubilee clip and some of the electrical fittings were incomplete. We were expected to eat our breakfast in the kitchen which was in need of remedial work and not suitable for this activity. The rest of the accommodation was lovely and they paid great attention to detail which was very welcoming.
