The Hotel Colonna, inaugurated in 2000, is a 4-star hotel in the historic center of Frascati. The property is housed in a charming period building that faces piazza del Gesù and its splendid church, which boasts a stunning facade by Pietro da Cortona and magnificent paintings by Andrea Pozzo (1642-1709), some of the best-preserved architectural and artistic examples in the Castelli Romani area. Frascati, only 6.2 miles (10 kilometers) from the Eternal City, is an extremely favorable location both for its fine climate and convenient position. It offers a vast choice of traditional restaurants, trattorias, and osterias in which to sample genuine local specialties and renowned Frascati wine. The area also offers a wide choice of golf courses: Castelgandolfo, Acqua Santa, Fioranello, and Marco Simone are the Golf Clubs that collaborate with the hotel in the organization of weekend and week-long golf packages. For non-golfers, the property can arrange anything from cooking lessons to guided museum and church visits in the surrounding area, in Rome, or the Vatican. Naturalistic, cultural, and archaeological excursions can also be organized upon request. Wedding services are available. Hotel amenities include free wireless Internet access, bellhop, and complimentary newspapers in the lobby.
The Colonna Hotel is centrally located in Frascati. Easy walk to all sights, train station and buses. When I arrived at 8:30 in the morning, I could already use my room. And when asked for a taxi, and it didn't come in 10 minutes, one of the staff drove me to my destination. Nice, spacious, comfortable room. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Be aware that not all rooms have a view. Mine looked at an internal courtyard. I did not care though.
Friendly and helpful staff at small and well-appointed boutique hotel in hill-top town of Frascati, 20km outside Rome.
