We only had one night in Frascati, so whilst we love old, traditional, quirky accommodation, we wanted something very "easy". We'd been travelling and so wanted a good. powerful shower and a very comfortable bed in a room that was spotless. Hotel Villa Mercede, about 1km down the hill from Frascati historical centre, ticked all the boxes - and more. If you want something with a bit of character, first impressions as you pull into the car park can be a bit disappointing. It looks very new (a plus point of you want modern) & does look as if it might lack character. However, once we checked in, we were delighted. Perfect for an overnight stay. Everything we had wanted was there - including a very big shower. The bed definitely stands out as one of the most comfortable on our current trip - and havng travelled a lot in Italy over the last few weeks, we've slept in a lot of Italian beds.The hotel has a pool and an outside terrace - it was a hot afternoon in late September & we took advantage of the pool still being open, followed by an ice-cream & a vino from the bar located right next to the hotel. The gelateri had an extensive choice and is clearly a destination for locals, because as we sat relaxing, there was a steady stream of families & couples arriving, buying ice-cream & driving off. The hotel is about 1km from the centre of town - although it is uphill on the way there, it's not steep and the compensation is that it's downhill on the way back. All in all, a great find for a short stop over in a beautiful city in the hills above Rome.
