We drove a car (rather large one) from Rome which was easy enough, but when we arrived, faulty google navigation directed our car right to the front door of the papal residence where we had to do a difficult turn around and come in to the town from the other side. (streets are super narrow and 1 way). coming from...

We stayed two nights in the summer home of the Pope and were given a one bedroom apartment down the street from the main hotel. We were dubious at first, we had reserved an upgraded room, but when we saw the flat we were impressed. It was large with a balcony view of the lake, and right next door to...

The hotel is in a very beautiful place, surrounded by mountains, next to the lake, 40 min ride from Roma. Great place to go to spend the romantic weekends with your significant other or escape from the city. The hotel is very clean and neat and the interior is decorated with a good sense of style.

We have just returned from a week at this wonderful hotel. This was the first time we've booked a holiday online without a travel agent so I was rather nervous, but it went without a hitch and I can honestly say it was fantastic!

Great location, people, and views. We highly recommend this hotel as a great vacation spot outside of the busy Rome, but close enough to enjoy the city and go back to a relaxing hotel in a great little community.

We had an amazing stay at Hotel Castel Gandolfo. We had a spacious room with balcony with lakeview. The view was incredible! We also had a nice hottub. And the area is very nice, if you go around to find a cute Italian restaurant.
