Memorize the picture. It will help you locate Club Kotobuki. I'll admit, it was a challenge to find, but what a wonderful discovery. The only disappointment is that we did not build our trip around a stay at Club Kotobuki. Someday we will. Tony and his wife are delightful hosts. He sat with us as we gazed across the countryside,... More

When we arrived we couldn't get in and the buzzer... More

Excellent B&B in perfect location surrounded by wonderful hills looking towards the Rome (“the view to die for”). I would say that the star rating of this place according provided services and location easy would rich 4-5 stars. The owners (Tony and Takeko) are very supportive and friendly. There are self-catering apartment with own facilities, twin room and exclusive double... More

I could not have had a warmer welcome from Toni and Takeko, and from the dogs. This is a new property, so the garden is still more mud than plants, but the rooms were delightful, the food delicious and the advice on where to go and what to see impeccable. I can't wait to return when the weather is warmer.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A fabulous 360 degree vista over the Prenestini Mountains, and one of the most beautiful views of the Eternal City, and all only 35 kms south east of Rome. Takeko is from Tokyo, an ex opera singer, she is passionate about music, good food, and Italy. Tony is from Milan, with long experience as a tour guide. He too is passionate about music, good food, the whole of Italy, and Takeko, his wife. In June 2007 they decided to realize their long held dream of running a B and B. Having bought an amazing villa, they opened the CLUB KOTOBUKI (fear not, this is NOT a night club) at Castel San Pietro Romano, a jewel of a medieval village, perched on the acropolis of the most ancient classical temple, the Temple of Dea Fortuna at Palestrina, city of music. For Tony and Takeko it will be a constant pleasure to introduce their guests to the secrets of this little known part of Italy, so rich in art and history, and also full of genuine life which still remains almost untouched by tourism. Here you will find everything from saints to sausages, from cultural events to traditional local festivals, from works of art to rare birds and wolves. This is our idea of what tourism should be, and it is why we chose this area, so close to Rome but set in beautiful countryside rich in places of varied interest. Our Bed and Breakfast offers stylish, relaxing accommodation, and hospitality to satisfy the most demanding guest. WE LOOK FORWARD TO OFFERING YOU A WARM WELCOME. ... more   less
