This hotel is infested by cockroaches, there are even more in the management team! We did not even bother to stay although we booked for 2 nights, they refused to give us a refund on our prepayment through Hotels. com

Good things first: The whole staff is nice and helpful, the breakfast as good and Italian as it should be, the view stunning. But: You cannot enjoy this in an untidy room with broken furniture and torn linen. Everything is made up from the cheapest material available. The shower suspension broken, mildew in the corners, the hair dryer at the... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel, upon arrival in Italy and the night before our return to Toronto. Gianluca and Adrianno are fantastic hosts and run a very fine hotel. The breakfasts and wonderful and the rooms although small, are more than adequate. We had the best night's sleep in their hotel as the beds are so comfortable!... More

Castel Gandolfo is built on the rim of an extinct volcano, with Lake Nemi in what was the crater. Hotel Castel Gandolfo is built on the rim, and do go for the lake view rooms as the views are really lovely. The hotel is good. Rooms quite small but very acceptable and quiet. The bathrooms seem to have these plastic... More

To be close to Fiumicino airport for our return home (it's about a half hour away) we stayed at the hotel Castel Gandolfo our last night in Italy. The hotel is conveniently located close to the center and restaurants in Castel Gandolfo, but be warned that claiming this to be a 4-star is just plain ridiculous. Granted, our room had... More

Our family of 5 had a brilliant stay at Hotel Castel Gandolfo, thanks in large part to Gianluca and Adrianno. The hotel is clean, views of lake are amazing and morning breakfasts are terrific. We hope to be back there one day. Elevator is tight, so use stairs where possible.. AC was a bit loud in one room, but there... More

If you decide to have a quit & pleasant weekend or short vacation in the Castelli Romani area, you must spend at least a night in this very nice hidden hotel in the Pope's summer town. It is prefectly run by Federico, Gianluca and Tatiana, with an efficient and friendly manner; a bit hard to find nowdays. The hotel is... More

This place looks out over the lake and has awesome views. And the staff is great and friendly. We opted for the better room to get the view. Well worth it and not a bad price for Italy. Just below is a restaurant recommended by the hotel. Not to be missed. Amazing food, and awesome views. Some of the best... More

Right off of the main piazza in Castel Gandolfo, within a minute's walk of the Pope's summer residence, is this very nicely appointed boutique hotel. It's small frontage makes it easy to miss and it is horrendously difficult to get to/park by car, but it is worth it. The staff is VERY helpful and gracious and completely English-fluent. The lobby... More
