Beautiful hotel, great food, delightful staff. Lake view room. Highly recommend this hotel. I can see where the summer wedding months might pose an issue related to noise, however. It is close to the train station via the little walk way which goes down the hill behind the hotel. The town of Castel Gandolfo is great for leisurely strolling as... More

We ordered the hotel a few weeks before our stay. We asked for a baby crib and were notified there is non available in the hotel. Instead we asked for a double bed with a *single mattress*. The idea was that our baby girl will sleep with us on the same bed. We sent a reminder email the day before,... More

This hotel overlooking Lago Albano is a beautiful property in a delightful location. The facility is beautifully quaint, the rooms are comfortable and the service is friendly and charming. The morning breakfast is rather nice as the dining facility is quite elegant. The room rate is very reasonable for what you get. We were meeting our daughter in Castel Gandolfo... More

What an amazing hotel spread over five floors on a steep mountainside! Panoramic views of the beautiful lake Albano from the restaurant patio. What better place to eat?
