Another stay as Castel Gandolfo is just a 15 min drive from Ciampino airport. Hotel seemed to be under different management. As always the view of the lake is breathtaking. Small but adequate en-suite room, very clean. Mini bar was stocked and reasonably priced, but there were no glasses - could only find disposable plastic cups in the bathroom which... More

Hotel Castel Gandolfo proved to be a restful spot with a fantastic view of Lago Albano. Easy access to a variety of great restaurants. We had the chance to drink wine on the fourth floor balcony terrace and watch the Eurocup. Rooms are comfortable, quiet and well laid out.

To begin with I'll admit it wasn't what I expected. We stayed here for a night before flying home from Ciampino airport, which is not far away. The hotel is located in the old historic area, which is beautiful, with some lovely restaurants nearby. We were allocated an apartment about 100 yards down the street. It had steep stairs up...

I stayed last week one night in the apartament belonging to the hotel. Great view on the lake which is just under the balcony. The apartament is qiute narrow but very Nice even for four people with small kitchenette. Location very central but quite. No parking, basic italian breakfast. In my opinion great for one/ two romantic nights.

Hard to know where to start... Positives first, lovely location and the view from hotel room was amazing. Room was Italian small but bigger enough and clean. Although a tall or larger person would never have got in the shower. You can get a train into Rome from the local train station which is about 20 minutes downhill walk away.... More

Boutique Hotel - The only thing this place got right is the spelling of Boutique Hotel - had we seen the room before checking in we would have walked away.

Good about the hotel: Hotel has a great view at the back with a vast lake. Washrooms were clean though too small. Good breakfast Bad things- the list is long enough: >Dont get fooled looking at the pictures, the rooms are smaller than any normal bedroom anywhere in the world. >When they say free wifi is available, it means in...

Really went above our expectations. The breakfast was great, with a few different sausages, bacon (pancetta?), scrambled eggs, lots of cakes, fruit and cereal, different juices and you get whatever style of coffee. We got a multi level apartment with a terrace and lake view. The view takes your breath away. The staff are so helpful. Unfortunately we only stayed... More

This boutique hotel is situated in the historical centre of Castel Gandolfo which is only a half an hour's journey by train from Rome. The decor is pleasant and the staff welcoming. The rooms are clean and those overlooking the lake do not disappoint. One can enjoy spectacular views, especially at daybreak. The whole ambience of the town is quaint... More
