Small friendly hotel in the quiet seaside resort of Fregene close to Rome Fiumicino airport

On our first trip to Italy in 1999 we booked a room at Hotel Golden Beach as an overnight stop so that we could recover from our long flight before driving up to Tuscany and our rented house. We were pleasantly suprised at its location in the small seaside resort of Fregene, situated in the middle of an area of private villas and narrow lanes, bordered with an abundance of trees and flowers.

The hotel is pure 1960's vintage, furnished in original style, and does show signs of its age. But it is spotlessly clean and Anna Maria, who speaks excellent English, and her staff, could not be more friendly or helpful. The restaurant offers wonderful local food and you can dine inside or outside in the attractive gardens.

We returned in October 2004 and discovered that the hotel was still as good as we remembered, and of course it was wonderful to be greeted as old friends by Anna Maria. Hotel Golden Beach is very close to Fiumicino aiport which you can reach in about 30 minutes, driving on small back roads and we love this aspect - as coping with freeway traffic in a strange country after a long tiring flight can be very stressfull.

Probably the only down side to the hotel are the groups of students that occasionally stay there who can be a little noisy, but Anna Maria always informs you about this, and will put you in a room well away from them if you still decide to stay.

Finally, the cost of staying at the hotel is very reasonable (95 euros for a double room).
