I have recently completed the first of my "Italy the Sequel" tours for my company Tours for Independent Thinking Women. Our final night was spent at this hotel in relaxing, scenic Castel Gandolfo. My review is as I wrote in the heading: BEST BITS: > wonderfully large bedrooms each with a big view of the lake. > sumptuous dinner prepared... More

The location is fantastic, view on Lago Albano from some of the rooms plus breakfast/ diner hall. Rooms need work urgently, it seems that the place is not really taken care of. Starting from cleanliness, floors, shower, shower heads to many other items, lots of things could be fixed to drastically improve overall appearance. Breakfast is not overwhelming but does... More

The view from the hotel was in fairness spectacular, however it was no different to the ones that we could appreciate from viewing spots in the town! We had booked a twin economy room so did not expect anything extravagant but we would have liked a door to our room that was actually possible to open - each time, we... More

We stayed there for one night. The hotel has the perfect location, wonderful views over castelganfolfo's lake. Terrible breakfast, and the hotel needs serious refurbishment. It is a pitty for it has everythung to be great. Despite booking's notice it has no covered parking, so if you are travelling with a motorbike choose other options.

The Hotel is in a wonderful location, and if you book enough in advance you can secure the lakeview room at a very affordable price. Staff are very friendly and helpful: Fabio, Luca and all the others (..sorry I dont remember the names, but I mean them all) made every effort to answer all our requests in the 4 days... More

We had a wonderful 4 day stay here. The food and service was excellent, the views magnificent and the staff amazing. It is ideally situated for catching the very economical train into Rome. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

I have really enjoyed my stay at Castel Vecchio. Nice hotel, very kind service and fantastic location at the Albano Lake. Castel Vecchio is an excellent hotel at a very affordable price, just few minutes drive from Rome. I will for sure return.

I stay only one night in this hotel, was impossible to stay more. The bathroom possessed a horrible sewage smell. I had headache because this. The room is old and not in a good condition. The restaurant is a trash. I paid 40 euros for the fish menu and was totally disgusting. I got sick because the food was spoiled.... More

The hotel is situated with a breathtaking view over the lake and the Popes summer residence. Unfortunately we got a very small two bed room (no 201) not much space for suitcases. The larger rooms facing the lake are better, but the ones staying there had no heating that worked (March can be cold!) The restaurant at the hotel is... More
