My husband and I have stayed at this hotel three times, it offers great value, stunning views and pleasant staff. Although the rooms/bathrooms are quite small the bed is a good size and the bathroom is adequate. The hotel's situation is wonderful, the village of Castel Gandolfo is pretty and interesting and Ciampino airport is close by. We had a... More

This is a very good value hotel, with wonderful views of the lake, and a great terrace restaurant, within 20 minutes of Ciampino airport. We chose it only to be close to the airport for a morning flight; but it turned out to be a very pleasant experience indeed. Restaurant highly recommended for food and value.

This hotel and it's staff and food are wonderful.the rooms were clean,beds comfy if a bit hard and the view from the rooms is outstanding! I had the misfortune to have my purse stolen in Rome on the underground and the lady in the hotel was extremely helpful on my return. A 10min walk takes you to the centre of... More

Castelvecchio is splendidly located with several rooms with a spectacular view onto Lake Albano. Everything is a bit old style, but that was OK for us. Nice roof-top terrace with small swimmingpool (unfortunately still too cold in April). A nice party-room on the top-terrace as well, but that may cause some noice in the rooms below if in use. Unfortunately... More

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
