I would recommend this hotel because of the great location right on the sea and to the restaurants and shops . The staff is friendly and everything is new looking and in great shape. The design of the bathroom is very nice.

We needed a place to stay while our boat was in the yard. Aran Blue is right next to the marina. Beautiful and modern - not something you easily find in Ostia. Ostia is a little neglected seaside town about an hour from Rome. So don't expect anything in the way of sightseeing. Ostia Antica is the only must place... More

The Aran Blue provided a nice stay. The hotel is very new and the room was perfect. It is not near a downtown area (in Ostia), but there are interesting sights and facilities near the marina. The personnel was friendly, and helped me find my way around town. It is located in a residential, and this gives an interesting touch... More

I stayed for the week to visit friends and the hotel was in a great location. 10mins from the airport, beautiful sea view, lovely breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Fast and easy connection to Rome. The port is lively with a good selection of restaurants and only 2 mins walk. Thank you for a great break.

After researching a number of hotels, I picked this one because it was supposed to have all of the luxury of a 4 star hotel while being in a tranquil setting by the beach.

A very modern hotel with friendly and welcoming staff. The rooms are clean and it is nice that they have a balcony. There are some disadvantages though: The bathroom has only a frosted glass door, which is slightly uncomfortable. Also the key card nearly never works because of the strange system it has. I would furthermore recommend everyone to specifically... More
