Rome hotel that has own transportation to airport?

We want a room in a 3-4 star hotel in Rome near the Piazza Navona that has it's own transportation to and from the airport, any suggestions? Thank you.

We like the Due Torri but you have to take cabs sorry.

Any hotel in Rome can arrange a taxi or car service for you in advance, even for very early flights, if that is your concern.
Or you can arrange directly with a car service yourself.

We are staying at the Albergo del Senato in the Piazza Navona area in September and they have offered to pick us up with their limousine service.

Thanks I will look it up. I would rather have service from the hotel itself, if possible.

We stayed at the Hotel Primavera in March. It's about a 5min walk from Piazza Navona. They provide car servce to the airport, but its the grandmother driving the family car. She drives like a madwoman, so wear your seabelt. The car is relatively new and has adequate trunk space. I think it cost 30 euros.

Now that sounds like an experience! Thanks. Is this the hotel with the questionable rooms that I have been reading about here? I will look into it though.

No one else has asked, so I will - why are you basing your lodging choice in a major city on this transport issue? Just curious, that's all. A car is a car, a shuttle bus is a shuttle bus, a taxi is a taxi - they all can be easily arranged, even upon arrival.

Well since you asked, Curious George ;^), I am just spending one night before I head out to Naples. I don't want to spend extra money on a taxi or limo if I don't have to, I have done all of that before. I will be tired from the flight so I don't want to do public transportation. The hotel area is because I have a favorite restaurant that I want to go to that evening. Love Rome but not staying there this trip!

We stayed at the Teatro di Pompeo (near Campo di Fiore) last year. They have an arrangement with a limousine service. We were met by an---adequate...driver with his Mercedes. Worked out fine and really simple

Even if the hotel has their own transportation you WILL pay for it!

Except perhaps for some very top-notch luxury hotel that I can't even think of, even if the hotel has a car service that they use or call, you will be charged for it. Very few hotels in the world keep a car and driver of their own on their full-time hotel staff.

FYI: If you're getting a taxi through the hotel, be prepared to pay for that in cash and separately (upon checkout). In other words, the hotel won't just let you add it to your overall bill, which you might pay with a credit card.

Actually that is what I meant: to tack any charges on the hotel bill. Oh well, times have changed, years ago hotels just sent someone to the airport and you tipped them and it was a minimal charge. Or 50E may be the new minimal charge. Thanks everyone.

Karen- I stayed at the Hotel Primavera 2 yers ago and loved it! Rooms are spacious by European standards, were newly redone and had a lot of charm. The bathrooms were great too. Very nice family-run hotel in a terrific location at a very reasonable price.

The Albergo Cesari has Limo Service.

I found it just as easy and less costly to use LIMO Rome:
