This Luxury Country House, is located about 35 minutes from Fiumicino airport and very close to Ciampino airport. La Locanda del Pontefice is on Via Dei Laghi 24, at the Km 8 in Marino, Lazio.

It was an amazing hotel but very over priced, and the food was not too great, the view from my hotel room the "charm suite" was amazing but for the price there are better places to stay, it was a great venue for a wedding if you have that much money too spare

Beautiful view stayed for 2 nights resteraunt wasn't open on Friday night so had to take trip into town which was lovely. Not worth 160 euros a night however.

The room we stayed in was very nice. Everyone who works there was very polite and helpful. Sunday lunch prepared at the La Locanda was excellent. The staff arranged transportation for us and offered helpful information. The view from the property overlooking the lake was amazing.

The hotel is a bit hard to find as the address on the GPS was different, it's just a matter of keep driving and you will find it. The view of the hotel is unique, and if the weather is good you will get an amazing view of the old town of Castelgandolfo. Breakfast was very scare, not even Italian...

Entering the hotel was like coming to someone's home -- and a grand home at that..!.Giorgio, the receptionist (a man with many languages and talents) made us feel at home immediately, by coming to meet and greet us when we were getting out of the taxi. As the peak season was already gone, there were very few other guests -...

I completely agree with the previous review left by GMart this was a wonderful venue for a wedding with fantastic views overlooking the lake, the rooms weren't perfect but this was easily overlooked as the staff worked tirelessly and cheerfully to look after us all so well.

A place that seems to be from a different time. Querky in style and in the owners' understanding of customer service, but they do provide a memorable experience. For three days we were the only guests, but there was no access to anything like a hotel bar. Breakfast was traditionally continental, so don't expect a fry up. Might be worth...
