We stumbled across Culla del Lago accidentally but were blown away by the surroundings. Private access to the crystal clear waters of the lake, where you can swim or just take in the view. The gardens are lovely and staff very friendly and helpful. Without your own transport it would be a little tough to get to and the nearest... More

Just a note to say thank you very much for the time we stayed with you in May 2013. We had a wondeful 4 days- very relaxing, with enjoyable walks and just what we needed. The bedroom with balcony over looking the lake was very comfortable and we welcomed the very peaceful setting. Great swimming. Breakfast outside was great. We... More

I stayed here for a family reunion with 16 people of all ages, everybody was delighted by every aspect of this charming, friendly and beautiful hotel.For logistic reasons the vicinity to Ciampino airport was ideal, also the easy access to Rome for sightseeing. The location is perfect, with such splendid views from the terrace that its hard to leave, but... More

Location, location, location. This small hotel is located only one hour from Fiumicino Airport by car making it an obviuos stay over hotel before the flight home. Furthermore the hotel is located at the shores of the beuatiful Lago Albano opposite the village Castel Gandolfo where the Pope has his summer residence. And he was there at the same time... More

Friendly welcome from the owner who showed us to our room – the hotel was almost empty. The room was pretty basic but clean and overlooked the lake. The whole place was very tranquil if a little “tired”. The AC worked and was most welcome, but it was a little noisy. There was free Wi-Fi and a PC available for... More

A picturesque setting, immediately adjacent to the mysterious slatey-green waters of Lake Albarno. Magnificent views across the lake to the Papal summer palace in the village of Castel Gandolfo. Within easy reach of Rome by train or car, but a world away from the city. You cannot fail to feel as if you are staying with friends at Hotel la... More

We spent one night at Hotel Culla del Lago before flying home through Boston last June. It was a very warm day and we had a hard time finding the hotel (we're lost in Italy almost every day, even though we've been there 9 years in a row) but it was worth the hunt. The swim in the lake was... More

I spent 8 wonderful days with my daughter in La Culla Del Lago. What a gorgeous place! It has a breathtaking view of the lake and surrounding mounts. It is so serene and beautiful, yet simple. the service is great; the rooms are clean. It's only 20 minutes from Rome. It's definitely worth the commute. I want to thank Georgio,... More

Entering Culla del Lago is like entering a gorgeous Italian paradise with birds singing, Ivy draped across walls, garden flowers blooming, and a gorgeous view of Castel Gandolfo across the water. The welcome from Georgio and Lucia couldn't have been warmer. The owners speak English well and were very helpful - picking people up on the train, helping with logistics.... More
