almost two years ago we spent one night at the hotel on our way to Rome. What a beautiful gem it is, laying on the lake, true to its name, with quaint little rooms, beautiful setting amidst the woods and surrounded by a carefully nurtured flower garden. We received a great recommendation by hotel owner for an amazing restaurant. Glad... More

My husband and I spent 5 days here in 2011. A hotel in a beautiful setting, very friendly and hospitable owners. We were practically the only guests at the time and it felt as if we had the villa, the gardens and the lake to ourselves. We were offered lunch on a couple of days, no real menu, we were... More

We arrived at this hotel and as it was out of season the host upgraded our room so we had a lake view at no extra cost. Another nice gesture was to sit in the garden and be asked if we would like a drink and biscuits on arrival another nice experience after driving from Florence. The hotel is situated... More

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

Hotel sits on the edge of Lake Albano, with beautiful panoramic view. There are a big terrace, every morning we had breakfast outside, it was amazing. We will definitely stay at... 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.

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
