Lovely old Villa Hotel in suburbs of Roma.
Posted Sep 19, 2013
Very pleasant and peaceful stop over/rest for 2 nights on my driving trip south to Sicily from UK. About 20km to Rome centre, easy drive in if you have GPS or just keep driving own hill, you will find Rome. The Villa/palace hotel is located in an up market suburb and has a lush garden and nice pool, you can park your car in the drive as long as you don't block it. I had a small single room with large double bed, toilet sink and bidet. Plenty of towels and a basic cubicle shower. Nice shuttere arch window gave it a very castle feel.
The reception and lounge area is marble with antiques, staff where friendly and efficient. The buffet breakfast had plenty of fresh croissants and good freshly made cappuccino, also nice touch aqua pana water. My only gripe was no water in the room apart from a tired looking plastic bottle in the fridge that I suspect my have been all ready open and smelt a bit musty, the TV remote was intermittent..Frascatiti town is a couple of KM, so nice to eat out with spectacular view of Rome stretched out below.. A car is recommended as up in the hills, not much near the hotel or you will need to use taxis. All in all a very pleasant stay at a bargain price. Real piece of Italy away from the chaos of Rome.
