I would thoroughly recommend this hotel just outside of Rome. Me and my partner went for a 2 night break to Rome and had pre-arranged hotel transfers from the airport directly with the airport for €60 each way and thank god we did! The hotel is in a very remote location and to get there by public transport would have taken a few hours. The hotel arranges a daily shuttle into Rome which is €5 per person per way which is a bargain- although it means an early start as you leave at 9am and return at 7pm. The hotel can also offer a service which can drop your luggage to the airport for €7 per suitcase which is great if you choose to go into Rome for the day and then straight to the airport. When arriving to the hotel we were greeted by the friendly Maria- when shown to the room we had already paid for we were not too impressed - It was small, dingy and had many wasps flying around. We enquirer about a different room and were shown some of the impressive suites. It is definitely worth looking at an upgraded room when you reach here as we managed to haggle the price for an upgrade to a gorgeous suite for an extra €50 per night which on the Internet was £230 per night- a big thank you to Maria for sorting this out for us! This hotel has its own pool a 5 minute Walk away and is pretty much always empty which is great for some peace and quiet. The grounds of the hotel are absolutely stunning and unless there is an event on always very empty so again perfect for quiet lounging around. like I previously said this hotel is in a remote location so we struggled for food as the only place to eat is the restaurant hotel which does nice food but slightly limited menu. There are 2 restaurants 5 minutes down the road that are open for dinner and a disco on some evenings. There is also one shops that sells snack food, water, beers, etc. the breakfast was lovely, cereals, fruits, pastries, cakes, juices, eggs and hot drinks made to order. The hotel did have a wedding on one of the evenings we were there and although the music did go on until the early hours it really did not affect us. This hotel was perfect for us and provided us tranquility in between exploring the bustling, busy city of Rome.
