I've just seen about HelloSky : a new place just across from the terminals with a lounge and showers, and day and night hotel rooms. It could be good for people who want to meet after arriving on flights a long time apart. On the airport grounds, it's an alternative to the Hilton, where you need to call to ask about day room availability.

Finally! Rome is so far behind most major airports in Europe on this front. I discovered years ago that even if I don't get a lot of sleep on the flight over, if I can grab a shower upon arrival I can go all day.

Thanks Andrew. Looks perfect. Just booked a room for my daughter who is coming to visit this coming Friday. I will report back about her experience.

I promised to report back. My daughter and son-in-law had a 5 hour layover in Rome after an overnight flight. They booked 3 hours at HelloSky. A shorter walk in the termnal than the HIlton. The report: Very clean room, very good shower, comfortable bed, wifi. Way better than sitting in the airport waiting area. They showered, got some rest and continued on their journey feeling like human beings. It was 75 Euro for 3 hours or 95 Euro for 6 hours. A splurge but who better to splurge on than yourselves. They have a lounge that you can use for 20 Euro a person if you don't want the convenience and privacy of your own en suite room.

Just an FYI if you are looking at this hotel. You cannot leave your luggage with them if your room is not ready. This was noted in a TA review. The people in question arrived & had to return to the airport to use the left luggage there. The hotel confirmed this policy in a reply, saying it was the airport's fault that they couldn't accept left luggage.

Thanks. I will look into this and it sounds just right. I agree with others, a shower really helps in the recovery process.

When I called Hello Sky in Rome's FCO Airport, they said I would have to leave airport security to use their lounges and showers. I don't think I will leave security area because I have a connecting flight at Alitalia airline in terminal 1. So don't want to go through security again.

I am arriving in Terminal 3 at Rome's Fiumicino (FCO), needing to meet 4 other women arriving at Terminal 3 from DIFFERENT airlines, all within 1 hour of each other. Is there a restaurant to meet right after Passport Control. Do we need to pass through Customs after Passport Control? Four hours later we will make our way to Alitalia.

From what I've read, if your flights from the U.S. arrive at the satellite gates, currently numbered E31-44, you'll have a security check if you're connecting. Flights arriving at the new concourse E11-24 can avoid the security check if coming from a "clean" country including the U.S. Assuming the connection is within Italy or the Schengen zone and everyone's bags are checked through, you would have passport control but customs would only be after arrival at your final destination. You can see links to several airport maps at http://www.adr.it/web/aeroporti-di-roma-en-/pax-fco-airport-map . I think your short-haul Alitalia flight would use Boarding Area B. I think there's a seating area at the entrance to the concourse, by the low B gate numbers, which could be a good meeting place if you don't want to exit the terminal complex to HelloSky.

I still like my B & B plus a ride with Piero in Fumicino, just two blocks from the beach. I arrive, call him and withing 15-30 minutes he's at the airport to pick me up, take me to his B & B, clean ensuite room; then he takes me back to the airport the next day: 50 euros!
