Hotel Review Holiday Inn Fiumicino Airport

As with many 'airport hotels', this hotel is not really that close to the airport – it is a 15-minute freeway ride in a business park away from the airport. Now the good news is that there is a shuttle that will get you there; the bad news is that it only runs 4 or 5 times a day!

My flight got into FCO Airport at 4.30PM and the next shuttle was at 7PM – not perfect, but the food at Rome Airport kept me busy anyways.

The shuttle stop is hidden and I needed 30 minutes with lots of questions to find my place for pickup.

The hotel location is nondescript near the freeway and airport and outside the noise certainly radiates from the freeway.

Check-in was very quick and very friendly. The front desk spoke fluent English and ran me through all the options in seconds. It was as good as it gets and certainly not like the check-in ordeal I had to endure at the InterContinental Dubai or Holiday Inn Dubai.

The room was spacious – it felt like a Holiday Inn in the Americas. The internet was on the slow side with just about 2 Mbit.

Since there wasn't a coffee shop nearby (it was a Saturday morning and the office towers nearby were all boarded up), I opted to have the breakfast for EUR 16. It wasn't anything special, with a few low quality items, plus the coffee tasted stale – quel horreur!

In sum, this was a below-average stay – it was rather expensive (EUR 130 incl. breakfast and taxes) and the hotel just about delivered an average product.

However, on the other hand, I got my remaining stay for the IHG 'Into the Nights' promotion.
