My stay at this hotel was average - the hotel has great potential but needs to be updated. My dining experience in the evening was terrible. The dining room was understaffed and the waitress was absolutely rude. The breakfast was much better and the waitress was great. The front desk staff was courteous and helpful

We stayed here after 3 days in Rome. The hotel was just what we needed. The grounds are well kept and dotted with sun loungers. The decking by the side of the water was our favourite peaceful spot. The evening meal was very nice and breakfast each morning was a lovely spread. The beach is a 10/15min walk away, but... More

WOW. That is really all I can say about Il San Francesco! We stayed here one night as an escape from the Roman heat. It is a bit difficult to find with driving, but once you find it--it's such a gem! The first thing I noticed about the grounds is the beautiful and quiet garden adorned with white flowers- it... More

Lots of white marble and many rooms with a pretty lake view. Full breakfast and helpful staff. A bit hard to find and a shame to not be on the ocean, but in the shoulder season a good value. Very very quiet with open grassy grounds. Relaxing place.

This hotel seemed off the beaten tracks for tourists which is nice. It's beautifully decorated with an air of calm and the bedroom was peaceful. There is also a stunning lake with a deck stretching out to the water. Our first course of food at dinner was also delicious, the second not so great . Our main issue was some... More

We spent a week at the hotel and the staff really looked after us. The hotel is right on the lake and about 3 minutes drive to the beach (or ten minutes by bike, which is supplied by the hotel). Every single member of staff treated us very well, right from the maintenance guy to Sylvia on the desk, Sonja... More

The Interior Design of this hotel is unique and definitely Charming;) We absolutely loved it and knew that we will definitely be back. We had a room with the view... More

Whenever we wanted to lay down by the lake to tan, they... More

The rooms need some love, but they are clean. The view from the balconly makes you feel that you are on Holidays. The management makes sure that the tables are decorated very nicely at dinner. The terrasse and the garden are just beautiful. We went there with our kids, but i wouldn´t recommend it for families. It is more for... More
