Place to stay near FCO that's not an airport hotel?

I have an international flight leaving FCO at 10 on a Sunday morning and will be staying the week prior in Umbria. Figured it would be too long and stressful a drive if I were to drive directly from Umbria that morning. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I could stay on Saturday night? Thanks!

There is a Eur Parco de Medici Holiday Inn about 12 km away from the Airport...we had points and we stayed there one time when we didn't want to drive a rental car immediately after a grueling flight. It is simple, clean and has a pool and a free shuttle.

There is also a Holiday Inn at the airport, I think, which is bound to more expensive and not what you asked for, so be cautious if booking on-line.

So, have you car until your departure from FCO ?
Well, if it is so, I suggest you a very nice and NOT airport hotel: BORGO DI TRAGLIATA. Look at its website www.tragliata.it .
It is a country location, the rooms are good and comfortable and, first of all, the restaurant is very ggod.
Plus, in the morning, driving along a not crowded road you arrive to FCO in 15' more or less.
I go there often when I am in your same situation.
Ciao.

Hi Su,

We also stayed at that Holiday Inn. It is an International Style hotel with all the modcons. After 3 weeks in "charming" places, AC, a really hot shower and large fluffy towels were most welcome.

The electronic door key has to be inserted in a slot behind the door in order to make the lights go on.

Nice dinner. Very good bkfst.

They have a free shuttle bus to and fro.

Call them for schedule.

Thanks for the info. Will look up BORGO DI TRAGLIATA. If there's good food, I'm there! Any other suggestions similar to this would be great! Thanks!
