“Hotel at the centre”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Spent a week at Locanda II Mascherino in Frascati - we were attending a family wedding. The hotel itself could not be in a better location. It is right at the centre of Frascati, next to the Cathedral. The Cathedral bells do not sound overnight and start at 7am. Sound insulation in the hotel is good, so no problems - even at 7am! Continental breakfast was adequate. We had one meal in the hotel which was excellent. This is a family-run hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful - very welcome when you can't speak any Italian!
Frascati is a pleasant small town - ideal to explore in a couple of days. You can however travel to Rome very easily by train. It takes about half an hour and costs 2 euros 10 each way.

Funny little place, just off the main square in Frascati. It's a small hotel rather than a B&B, with three or four rooms off a dingy corridor. I suppose it has a certain quaint charm, and if it weren't for the WiFi and flat screen TV it would be like stepping back to the 1950s with its curious combinations of style, idiosyncratic electrics and appalling lighting. Its town centre location means it can be very noisy, and although the double glazing that must have been relatively recently installed reduces this, it also means that the room quickly becomes very hot - there's no air-conditioning and the ceiling fan didn't work, so you either suffer the racket of revellers and get some air or else you get some sleep but expire from heat exhaustion. We weren't impressed by the uninspiring breakfasts and the mould around the bath. There's a reluctance to change towels that is well beyond the usual 'respect for the environment' that we are used to from hotels. There are some redeeming features - the accommodation was relatively spacious, the staff were friendly and willing and there is a pleasant rooftop terrace where we were given a complimentary drink, but these virtues by no means compensated for somewhere we thought very overpriced for the quality of the accommodation.

Reviewed 15 October 2010

Room was very nice, with a romantic-looking canopy bed. Location is excellent, just off of public square (but the entrance is unmarked and looks like a residence, so it took me a long time to find the place!)

The B&B is directly above a bar ("Sherwood's Pub", just to the left of the big S. Pietro church). Unfortunately, my room window was just above the bar entrance, and it was very noisy till about 2AM every night, when the bar closed. This made it very difficult to sleep.

Fridge and hot water pot in room. No wi-fi available. "Breakfast" included, which consisted of coupons for a pastry and an excellent cappucino at the bar downstairs.
