Great stopover for late night arrival at the nearby airport
It was dwscribed as a hotel and upon the arrival it said hostel on the board! Disapponting enough as i had my daughter with me, rooms could not be licked, breakfast was served in a bar NeXT door with poor variety and limitited choice. Bathroom was to share among a big amount ofguests! Bathroom to' share and no lock on the door
Value of money not to conform of hotel clas. It is a l auberge de jeunesse, but price is such as two star hotel. Very nice interior.
Near airport of Ciampino Shower didnt work
Lady in reception was super helpful and very professional in finding vital information. Breakfast was available from 5 a.m.!
Very clean, personnel kind, the hall is cold but rooms are very comfortable. The hotel is not that far from the airport of Ciampino, but, nevertheless, difficult to reach in the night and only by taxi (30 euros for less than 2 km!!!) No possibility of choice at the breakfast: they only serve 1 cappuccino, 1 croissant, 1 sandwich with jam or butter and a juice. Situated close to the airport and the railway, you can wake up at every train passing and from 6 a.m. by airplanes
Air conditioning not working... childs cot filthy and broken. Swimming pool not in use. I had to carry childs cot to another room my self. Train running at the back of hotel. Planes landing during the night 500 meters from hotel. Strong smell of must in the rooms with mildew growing on the shower tiles.Shower door falling off so over all resembled a remake of faulty towers. All of the above.
basic accommodation, cheap noisy at night internal sound proofing poor, room ventilation poor ok for overnight before catching plane
This hotel is very convenient to the airport, and we had an early flight. It is a budget hotel and good for the cost. Taxi for 5 minutes to airport cost over 30euro, starting at 19euro when we got in. This wiped out the savings of a budget hotel. We could hear the people in the room next door at 1:30am like they were in our room. We could hear the sink turn on, etc. as well.
Absolutely not a 3 star - looks more like a no frills 2 star
Close to the airport Did not offer a shuttle service to airport so it costed 25 euro for a 5 min ride! Bathroom was extreamly small.
Good Parking facilities and a good location for access to Rome's Ciampino Airport - oversall a generally good, clean, and practical Hotel. It was quite difficult to find initially as not many signposts around the area and a very basic breakfast.
Very nice and helpfull staff. There was no siwmming pool as advertised.
Nothing Noise - Aeroplane noise and Train noise through the night. Also noise from kitchen staff from quite early in the morning. It was just too noisy
The hotel was lovely and tucked away in a suburb of Rome, just a short train ride away. The staff was responsive and the town delightful. The room was comfortable. Carpet needed replacement
Limitation of the electrical power
Central location, friendly helpful staff, free garage for car we would have liked some fresh bread for breakfast or, alternatively a toaster
Kind and helpful staff. Breakfast room in basement.
Friendly and helpful staff at small and well-appointed boutique hotel in hill-top town of Frascati, 20km outside Rome.
The hotel was quiet and comfortable. The staff was kind and showing availability. The city center was however not well cleaned and a bit noisy.
Great location, parking in a very busy area , lovely room There could have been more local info re restaurants etc
Friendly, helpful staff and good location in centre of Frascati. Nice breakfast Rooms were small and the shower was next to useless
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.
Underground parking, free WiFi internet, free shuttle (and a good punctual service) to Ciampino train station (shuttle takes 15-20min) - frequent trains from the station to Rome Termini (every 10-15 min). The hotel has also hd tv internet (keybord in your room), multi-language tv. Good breakfeast. It is a modern hotel and it is very clean. No negatives.
The hotel if you have a car is perfect. It is new, and you can go by car to a metro station(15 min away). The price for this hotel is too low if you compare with other hotel inside rome you have to pay double at least. So it is better to stay outside if you have a car (only). The breackfast.
The behavior at the reception was awesome. I like the guy's attitude towards the customer. I also liked the cleanliness and the atmosphere. I did not like my room. The room was too small, and fully stuffed with furniture. Had the planning of furniture been better, the room appeared to be little bigger. The quality of the pillow and the mattress was poor too.
The friendeliness of the staff was outstandingly warm and could not do enough for you.
equipments of the hotel nothing
The hotel is brand new (2010 talking), cool and nice to sleep in. Easy to get to, and there rooms are good. The WiFi service is not handling data very well, bad coverage of the rooms, so my internet connection was slow.
brand new hotel, clean & comfort rooms, underground garage with direct access to rooms by lift, free wifi, swimming pool, next to highway (if you have a car this hotel is great and offers direct access to rome and the coastal area). I found the airconditioning quite noisy for a brand new hotel besides that there is nothing negative I can tell about this hotel
The friendlyness of the staff. The breakfast is ok but is too oriented to sweets. Instead it would be good if there are scramble eggs, bacon, ham, sausages and so forth. The available dishes on restaurant menu are too oriented to pasta and the selections are simply too few. The cooking was not good at all neither the prices. The interior of the restaurant is too sterile.
The room was modern, bathroom fixtures all new and very roomie. It had internet wi/fi with no extra cost and it worked. All through Europe we found old hotels, cramped and if they did have wi/fi it was on and off. A pleasure to stay here. It was challenging getting downtown to Rome and back on the trains. The trains had little information about where to go and when to get off.
I liked the staff and the atmosphere of the Hotel... The lack of ample recreational facility... I believe that guests should have some sort of recreation within the hotel premises as the hotel is quite a distance from city center. A pool table or social lounge where games are available would be nice.
Breakfasts and free internet!
It's near to the airport. It's very, very difficult to find and very remote in the middle of an industrial area. One thing that was missing was a distinct lack of people (we were the only ones staying there)!!.
Its not very far from Ciampino airport and its quiet Its difficult to find at night when arriving by road. The main entrance to the hotel has been moved - Its is now on the road coming from Pavona SP101a to Pomezia - on the right about 200m before reaching Pomezia
The location was beautiful - ideal for a base if sight seeing in Rome There was no where other than the pool or restaurant to sit when not in your room. The rooms are very small and dark. They ran out of diet coke on our second day and by the sixth day still had none. During the week there was plenty of room round the pool but be aware it is open to the public at a fee so late afternoon and weekends its very busy and sunbeds few.
The old style of the place like the wooden roof. Very far from Rome, extremly hard to reach even with gps help, very poor breakfast, internet was not working, and you get very low value according to it's price.
The hotel staff seemed very nice and the grounds were enjoyable. If you are looking for a place to get away w/out much to do but swim and view the country and you have a lot of cash to spend it's a great place to stay. Or of course if you have a car the rooms and breakfast are good for the money. Dinner is about $40 euro a plate and your only other option without a car is a little grocery store with pizza/panini place around the corner because town is a bit of a walk. It appears to be along a cotral route but the buses seem to come incredibly sporadically. Despite what this site says there is no wifi in many (probably most) if not all the rooms.
It's just the best! If you're looking for a nice place to relax in peace and quiet, don't hesitate!!
hotel was very clean and was decorated in a tasteful way. breakfast was OK. dinner was expensive for what we had and was not edible. wine was like vinegar and the waiter seemed to think that by emptying it into a very wet decanter and warming it up would do the trick, of course it did not . It would have been laughable except for the price! I did mention it when checking out and only received an apology. there was no area that was welcoming to sit.
Very nice. Excellent restaurant.Charming. You need a car.
modern rooms breakfast room & choice of food
Very nice hotel with modern design. Small room but everything was designed perfectlly. I like the automation (lights etc). It had coffe maker in the room (with charge), microwave oven, VCR, Private parking outside the room. Good price for the room. A/C had a problem and room was cold. The receptionist had to close entire A/C. Shower shouldn't have, transparent glass. In case you travel with a non close person (wife girlfriend) there is a problem. The doors should open automatically without having to get outside the car and rign the bell. I was told to pay in advance during check in.
Originality of the room, access with car, private car parking Suggested improvement: glasses in minibar and in bathroom, more accessories in bathroom (kleenex, showercap)
Good value! Clean, secure and comfortable room with large flat screen. No restaurant on the facility to serve a continental breakfast. No hotel signs anywhere to identify the hotel. Fortunately the gas station attendant next door knew it.
nice and clean, pretty new wifi was very slow...
Modern furniture. No wireless internet.
The shjower in the bedroom!!
parking outside the room we spent 2 hours trying to find the hotel, it had no sign out side what so ever
it was a very good experience to stay in this hotel we had a very good time everything was good
Flat screen t.v. Not enough toilet paper and no access to it after hours, hard to reach location, no signs, no food to buy around the area
very close to the train station, so Rome can be yours in about 20 minutes. strange smell of gas from behind the bed and loose toilette seat in room "Los Angeles".Last train from Rome to Pantanelle leaves Termini at 21h - so no chance to enjoy Rome's night life.
Very nice rooms in a quaint Italian town. Very large rooms with a wonderful breakfast selection. Staff spoke little English. Location is a little inconvenient from attractions in Rome. Transporation to and from Hotel can be difficult at times. If you miss the last train in evening then it is very expensive to take a taxi back to hotel.
Attitude of the staff and general good warm atmosphere No
I liked the fact that they were happy to move us to a room with a bath when we found that the room we were allocated only had a shower and I had emailed them to confirm that there was a bath in the bathroom to which they replied affirmatively. The smaller room at the front was very hot and noisy (1 night of our 4 was in here)
Made to feel very welcome, genuinely warm staff, helpful, generous and courteous to their guests. Good adjacent restaurant. All round professional service. I liked my room, it was simple, modern and pretty. There was nothing to not like except that i wasn't driving and I had to get access to Frascati train station by taxi everytime i needed to go to rome. Bus service is poor.
quite close to airport no one could speak any english
It was convenient for our trip to the airport and the bathroom facilities were good. The reception area was exceptionally smokey and the smoke drifted up the stairs and into our room. For non - smokers this was unpleasant.
Few minutes from the train station. It is too expensive for what they offer. And they are smoking in the reception.
Friendly receptionist, but slow and not very well informed about shuttle to and from airport. The website indicates that there is a shuttle service but in fact there is only a bus to the station and it runs very irregularly, especially on a sunday or bank holidays. This meant that we had to get a taxi both ways and spend a lot of extra money. Noisy.
NO, It is not so easy reach from the airport even though the distance is only 2.5 km. It took me 25 EUR from the hotel to the airport.
Nice view from room and own balcony No breakfast (but they do provide coffee)
The location is brilliant its 5 minutes from Ciampino Train Station (which is a 15 minute ride to Termini Station) and its 10 minutes from Ciampino Airport. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was nicely decorated, brightly light and i would definitely love to stay there again. My only gripe was that the toilet facilities were too small.
it was near the airport and the staff were very friendly and helpful everything was ok
It was in a quiet neighborhood, it was relativelty close to the train station, and the hotel owner was very nice. I did not like the toilet being so close to the small shower, little shoulder room. Also, the beds where pretty hard, but you can live with it.
very helpful personnel, late arrival (due to delayed flight ) makes no problem for the restaurant people. On the other hand, breakfast is italian style only, but why not ? During winter time think to open the heating asap, as rooms can be cold indeed. I guess this hotel must be full and not available from april to october....
Price was good. Extremely noisy. Room doors are self closing, and when they do they bang very loudly so everytime anyone in the corridor closes the door you wake up immediately scared.
comfort and hospitality,easy access to town lack of hotel transportation to and from airport
Friendly, attentive and helpful staff.
The TV did not work
Big screen tv, satelit tv, good Bed and breakfast. Is not far from Rome. Room and personal are ok. The shower need to be change.
The Hotel staff was very helpful, the price, and proximity to train station. Our bathtub had mold in the corners.
Very clean...America-type facilities...staff very friendly and spoke English...excellant bathroom facilities Restaurant was closed and we had to order pizza, which was okay but would have liked to sit down to eat
According to well known name, the rooms were too old fashioned. I know it's a standard for these international hotels, but sometimes could be fine to present the rooms adding a typical country style (or even better with typical area style) also for abroad hotel, I suppose. Air condition system. Too much noisy
Service is excellent
English speaking and very helpful personel, clean and spacious room, very nice breakfast, good internet connection. Sometimes communication between restaurant and reception is bad - I was charged for a dinner, which was ordered by another room.
The employees at the Hotel were very friendly and polite. I missed a Gym, but else quite ok
Location,staff and views from hotel rooms were excellent.
Very friendly staff, quite spacious rooms and a good location. Very basic breakfast service, but better than last time when we were redirected to an adjacent coffee bar.
comfort and position tea/coffee making facilities in the bedroom would be appreciated
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to the historical centre. The metro-station to Rome is at only 10 km, and the journey to the centre takes approximately half an hour.
convenience, beautiful, perfect, the staff were wonderful!
Views over Rome
The main reason of stain there was the proximity to my conference place. My stay was pleasant and the personell very polite and facilitated me the maximun. Many Thanks
Staff very helpful. Parking excellent in hotel premises
Comfortable spacious room.Very easy access to Rome by train.
Hotel Bellavista is in the centre of Frascati and is almost adjacent to the railway station for Rome and to the bus station for local towns. It is therefore very convenient and it is also good value for money. No. The hotel was fine.
Stunning location, great service & throughly enjoyable stay.Would highly recommend it.
La atencion de los propietarios ha sido muy cordialy eficiente.Las vistas sobre el lago soy muy bonitas y el servicio de desayuno y almuerzo en la terraza sobre el lago fue sumamente agradable y relejada. Un lugar para recomendar.
A very nice setting.It is really only a nice b and b but very expensive for a b&B.
Stunning location, very quiet and fairly secluded spot. Meals (fairly expensive) could be arranged with prior notice and were very good quality - some of the best meals we had during our stay. Fairly cut off from Castel Gondolfo, would have been easier to get around with a car. Little choice of restaurants in immediate surrounding area and a lot closed. The hotel itself was lovely, very relaxing, pleasant helpful staff and beautiful location.
The kindness of the owner as it was truly outstanding. It made you feel at home. I would recommend it to all my friends.
The tranquil setting, the location right on the shore of Lake Albano, the lovely garden terraces, the view Lack of information about the area, e.g. maps, leaflets etc
The most peaceful location we have ever experienced yet in easy reach from good roads and rail direct from Ciampino airport near Rome
excellent family run quiet friendly hotel
Unfortunately this was the poorest accommodation in 3 weeks. The shower screen was dismantled, the drain was blocked meaning that only the quickest wash with no hair washing was possible, the breakfast was poor and the restaurant and drinks both expensive and the poorest quality experienced. The staff were perfunctory.
We enjoyed our stay thanks to the excellent staff both at the hotel and the Academia Restaurant and the food was fantastic - Thanks Valentina and Massimiliano. It would be good if the hotel could provide transport to the train station in Frascati - Two taxi trips cost us Euro 30 - very expensive compared to the train ride to central Rome!
Big parking, rich breakfast, clean, lovely at 360°! Our kid loved the huge green park around the hotel! Unfortunately we didn't manage to try the hotel restaurant, which we heard is opening in march... we'll do it next time, because we are surely coming back!
new family suite, helpful staff and shuttle bus to train station
Very comfortable and clean room with extremly friendly hotel staff.
Location, efficient staff, the size of the suite Shiraz Close to highway so too noisy at night. Poor breakfast.
The staff were excelant, especially Cyrus who drove the Shuttle bus, he could not do enough for us during our stay, assisted by his daughter Alexia. The only down side would be the breakfast, being British we expected more variety. The continental style wasnt sufficient although we accept this is typical.
very big room for 4 persons, restaurant, friendly personnel, shuttle to the train station in the morning
hotel laid on a courtesy bus, at a small charge to pick you up from airport and take you into town etc (hotel about 5K from town) Bar open in hotel 1000 to 2200 and manned by reception staff. Hotel ideal for business people. only contenetal breakfast available from hotel and an adjacent (independent) restaurant opened in evening (not cheap) For tourists hotel needs swimming pool and snack bar Hotel ideal for business people
Very friendly staff, clean and tidy, had a quad room that was spacious, very good location for Rome if you have a car, about 30 min drive. Didn't enjoy the disabled bathroom (room 30) or the fact there was no tv in the lounge area,Wifi use is complicated, no open access.
Very good Restaurant
the restaurant wa very good. staff were friendly and the food excellent. the fish was great and the pizza looked sooooo good. internet access in lobby was a plus also. the hotel has a shuttle bus to the airport which is so handy. the shower area was grubby looking and the walls are thin.
Excellent location if you have an early flight leaving from Ciampino Airport. Except for the airport proximity, there is no other reason for me to choose this hotel.
The hotel was close to the airport, but not walking distance. Some of the staff were very rude. The beds were very hard and you cannot walk to the airport like we were told.
It's an okay place to spend a short night if you have an early morning flight. There is a shuttle to the airport for a small fee. The dining room was excellent. The beds were just awful and the walls are paper thin.
