“Very comfortable, and the best linen ever!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This charming small hotel has been very sensitively converted from an old building (I didn't discover the history), The rooms are generous, with wooden timbered ceilings and wooden floors. Internet is slow, but that is common all over Italy. Breakfast in the lobby consists of a huge variety of cakes and sweet things, mostly home made, and an excellent variety of fruit. Not a bacon-and-eggs sort if place, but fresh squeezed juice is readily provided.The very intrusive background music (I know, my pet peeve) was willingly and instantly turned off - I think it probably drives the staff crazy, too.
Something I have never experienced before is the superb linen, on the beds, and even the napery on the breakfast tables. It's the very best quality, like the fine linen one would expect on an expensive shirt or blouse, with a slight weave.
The only slight drawback to this otherwise super hotel is that there is no outside space (garden, courtyard) but in every other respect, I thoroughly recommend it for the very warm and professional welcome you will receive.

I used to enjoy dinner several times before at the restaurant - Taverna dello Spuntino. This time we decided to spend the night as well. They have gorgeous cosy rooms with a very charming bathroom and bacony. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. If you book a standard room you can still enjoy the fireplace down in the reception area and sip some local wine.

This is an amazingly beautiful small hotel with charm to spare! The details of the lobby and our room are unsurpassed. Mosaic, marble, wood beams and flooring, real linens on the bed... as in linen! The Roman tub/shower was one that you will want to bathe two or three times a day and stay under it the rain shower for hours! Big, fluffy towels and robes... and little candies strewn across the bed, like flower petals. (A thick mattress pad would be the only thing missing).

The rooms are small but for a short stay, they are well laid out with sitting area and outdoor space. Ours had a small patio with French doors... more charm and fresh air. And, a "proper" ice bucket to chill our wine.

The staff, the only one that we met and a man of many hats, was also very charming. Breakfast in the morning was a small display of pastries and cereal, etc. and coffee made to order. Sitting in a most beautiful room with fine china and tablecloths made you feel like you were welcome in someone's private home.

This hotel is the PERFECT stop to or from the Rome Fiumicino airport. A 30 minute drive is a perfect layover whether ending or beginning your trip. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

Please see my review of the restaurant Taverna dello Spuntino which is attached to the hotel. Another treat.

We flew into Rome on a late flight. By the time we arrived at the hotel it was almost midnight. The reception is staffed 24 hours around the clock, so no worries with getting in.
The lone late reception staff was very gracious. Even though the restaurant was closed he put together an excellent plate of solume. We dined with good local red vino di tavolo, in the beautiful lobby, while the staff went to our car to get the luggage and took them up to our room. The hospitality shown was fantastic and genuine.

Four of us stayed for 3 nights whilst we explored Frascati and surrounding areas. Beautiful hotel in a lovely town. The rooms are well furnished with quality bathroom and beds. The staff could not have been more helpful, arranging visits to vineyards and restaurants and making our stay a real treat. The restaurant attached was superb as was the restaurant in the next building called Peccati Di Gola - so a foodie joy. Ask to visit the cellars below the hotel where wine has been stored for hundreds of years.

I really love this Hotel. We stayed here 5 years ago and have wanted to come back since. We finally got to do that this year. The food is great, the staff are soooooo helpful, the rooms are beautiful and the town is a little gem. It is a great base for exploring the Castelli Romani. The restaurant on the same side of the street is worth a visit too. The hotel is only 7.5k from Ciampino Airport.

Quaint little hotel with nicely appointed rooms. Good service. The air conditioned rooms were welcome when the temps were in the 90s. Less than an hour to Fiumicino airport. Had a great dinner in their restaurant.
