Hotel de "La Ville"
The Hotel de "La Ville" has a sitting room off the lobby with Italian-language newspapers on the coffee table and huge windows facing the seafront promenade.
A carpeted marble staircase with wrought-iron railings leads upstairs to the 37 guest rooms and 8 suites. (The hotel also has an elevator.)
My renovated double room had a floor-to-ceiling window facing
Civitavecchia's new waterfront promenade and the Tyrrhenian Sea. (It would have
been nice to have more electrical outlets, but unplugging a lamp solved the
problem of how to recharge my computer and camera batteries.)
My private bathroom had marble tile walls, a marble shelf around the sink, a marble floor, and antique brass fittings. (The shower stall was modern, with a plastic curtain.)
From the room's window, I could look toward the port and see two cruise ships. (The palm trees in the foreground line Civitavecchia's waterfront promenade.)
This photo was taken with a telephoto lens, which makes distant objects appear closer than they are.
The Hotel de "La Ville" serves a buffet breakfast in "La Taverna del Filippo," within the walls of ancient Roman baths. (The pastry selection in the lower photo represents a small portion of the breakfast spread.)
I reserved my room through the secure Hotel de "La Ville" site operated by Booking.com, our hotel reservations partner, and breakfast was included in the rate.
