We chose Castel Vecchio because of its surroundings and its proximity to the Rome airport: we didn't want to drive far the first day because of jet-lag. We enjoyed our stay very much. I want particularly to mention the outstanding service we received at the front desk. The airline lost our suitcase, and the staff at the front desk kindly made numerous phone calls in Italian to inquire on our behalf. This was very much appreciated.

Our room faced the lake and was very comfortable. The view of the lake is beautiful and worth any extra cost.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake. It is well worth it.

My fiancé and me, were doing a trip crossing the Toscane with the final destination, Rome. So before go straight to the Eternal City, we decided pass one night in here, to discover other village and follow the recommendations from some many friends, of come to Castel Gandolfo and Ariccia.
From the first moment that we arrived, we felt really loved from the staff. All of the people working in the Front of the House were really attend to us in order to solve all of our questions.
But the biggest surprise, it was the views. From our room we could see Albano Lake in a perfect and marvellous panoramic view. No words...
And obviously, not only the receptionist staff were looking after us. Room service and breakfast restaurant, were more than able to make perfect our stay.
Definitely, we’ll back here. Food, staff, views, ... everything amazing.
Thanks a lot!

A Nice ekend from late wednsday to sunday morning - very relaxing With especially Nice people and very good food. We had a room at 1. floor With a fantastic wiew of the sea and the area around. We were guided to the Popes summer residence and park, and had a stay rhat we needed from working in the dark season of Norway. Thank you to all, from the reception to the servants and cleaners - and the director!

Room Tip: Ask for wiew of the sea - that is also away from the road.

We stayed here one night only in September, 2017. The hotel and staff were wonderful. The views of the lake and surrounding countryside were also great. It is quiet and within walking distance of the Pope's summer palace,.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room.

We chose to stay two nights in Castel Gandolfo for my husband's 65th birthday, and we were delighted with Castel Vecchio. All the staff we encountered were very welcoming and helpful - because we didn't have a cellphone, they very kindly arranged a private tour of the wonderful sites in Albano Laziale (the magnificent Roman cistern and the beautiful Santa Maria della Rotondo), as well as our taxi to Ostia Antica. Our room placement scared us a bit at first, being on level -3, but it was large, very clean and comfortable, and featured a sitting area that had sliding windows opening on to a small terrace with a gorgeous view. The room had all the features we had come to expect and appreciate during our month-long Italian trip (mini fridge, tiled bathroom, storage cupboard), but with that view we hardly noticed. We ate dinner in the restaurant our first night and found the service to be excellent and the food good to very good with enormous portions (we were embarrassed to have not finished our delicious primi piatti of pastas with puttenesca and carbonara sauces). The included buffet breakfast was excellent, with a variety of sweet and savory choices, and included a panini toaster! Also, they have a rooftop swimming pool, but it was too cold for a dip - our only regret. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with a lake view on the -3 level.
