Enchanting Villa and medieval retreat!Posted Dec 25, 2013
Pros: The food was delicious. The gardens are lovely. The staff are patient and friendly. The room was cozy and lovely.
Cons: not sure
Location: You have to take a shuttle or cab into town, but there is a pizzeria and disco just down the road. There also seem to be other recreational activities
The fashionable thing to do is stay in the city of Rome, but if you want a little quiet and a true culinary treat, then I might recommend trying something outside the main. Especially if you've hit the big sites of Rome before, staying at the RC puts you in commuting distance if you want to visit during the day, but gives you the peace, quiet, and serenity of a country side inn. There is a shuttle into town for 10 Euro round trip/person. Or a cab ride will cost you about 30 Euro one way if you want to go for dinner. There is a little pizzeria and bar down the road from RC, but I would recommend giving the on location bar and restaurant a go first. The food is absolutely lovely and the staff friendly and accommodating. There are a variety of rooms. Some have thicker walls than others. However, they are quite comfortable and cozy with just a touch of whimsy to add the romantic element you're looking for.

Tuscany in Roma; best of both worlds.Posted Oct 6, 2013
Pros: View, facilities
Cons: Changing the drop off time into the city to be earlier in the morning, around 8:00am
Location: Pizzeria up the road, Country store with butcher, wine and necessities about 1/2 mile up the road.
Living in a major city we were hoping to stay outside of Rome's city limits to experience Italy on a more intimate level, rather than the hustle and bustle of city life we are used to. Staying at Relais Castrum Boccea was exactly what we were looking for and were so pleased with our stay. It is the best of both the country side and being able to reach Rome in a short time. To start, he view is absolutely breathtaking. Set atop a hill in what feels the country side (30 minutes outside of Rome), we got the serenity we were looking for. We were able to watch both the sunrise and sunset on the beautiful hotel grounds. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very delicious pizzeria up the road, less than a mile. Cute little shop to get meats, cheese and wine from a country store. Staying here gave us a more Italian experience than tourist museums and ancient ruins. My only advice would be if you are thinking of staying here, stay at least 3-4 nights. I suggest this because if you use the van to hitch a ride into the city, you only get ~7hours to explore the city. .By the time you arrive, ~1030 (due to traffic), it does not give you must time to leisurely walk around the city.

Relax!!Posted Aug 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
Me and my other half stayed in this hotel in July as part of a travelling trip around Europe. We booked a suite, the hotel buildings and it's grounds are stunning. The staff are extremely helpful and ensure you have everything you need. It's a little way from Rome but if your looking for a quite paradise.... This is the place to go!

Beautiful, out-of-the-way, but good locationPosted Jul 13, 2013
The venue is beautiful. Our only major complaint was they had air conditioning problems.

Great location, brilliant accommodationPosted Jul 12, 2013
Pros: Peaceful location
Beautiful location and top quality accommodation in a unique setting. The mini bus service into central Rome was reasonable and dropped us off right outside the Vatican City.

far from the touristic locationsPosted Jun 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Only if u have a car u can enjoy. Its too far from the center and it takes 3 buses and 2 hrs to get there. So backpackers avoid the mistake. But other than that a beautiful hotel quiet and calm with very friendly staff.

Hotel located in a beautiful, secluded area. Outstanding views all around. Staff were OUTSTANDING! Very helpful, always went the extra mile to help out. Only complaint about the hotel is the distance to the center of Rome. The hotel provided a bus service (€10 round trip) but, this is purely a personal opinion, I didn't find the bus times very convenient as I would have preferred to stay longer in the center of Rome.

Relaxing RelaisPosted Jun 2, 2013
Pros: Staff and appearance of the hotel
Location: Some distance from Rome but with the shuttle service no problem.
If you want to have a peaceful time away from a busy day in Rome, this is the perfect place to relax in peace. The staff are very friendly and really aim to make your stay comfortable. The daily shuttle, has friendly drivers, especially Luca, who navigate the treacherous streets of Roman traffic with skill, Italan style- an adventure all in itself. The food in the restaurant is really excellent and reasonably priced. They also offer an airport shuttle for a lot less than a taxi and at 10 euro a day, return trip, the daily shuttle to Rome is also reasonable. The grounds are all laid out like a castle and there are pretty fountains and some stunning views from the area used for weddings, which is accessible for anyone. The room was clean, spaceous and fully equipped, including satelite tv, decorated in a stylish and rustique Italian decor. All around, this was a good choice of hotel, especially travelling with children. We had a great time.
