I stayed at this 4 star hotel for a night in September largely because of the value for money (€85 on-line booking) compared to other nearby B&B/hotels and the fact that they provided a free shuttle from the Frascati train station and that the hotel was away from hectic Rome. The hotel sits on the side of Colli Albani volcano.
The shuttle brings you up the winding road to a majestic wonderful piece of architecture high above Frascati and overlooking Rome. The grand doorway brings you into a beautiful interior that is wonderfully original with painted walls, natural stone doorways, marble and granite floors and a classy dining room. Rooms are cool and airy with firm beds, excellent showers and a frigo bar. High ceilings and large windows are shuttered but can be opened wide to let the welcome cool air fill the room. WiFi is everywhere except it is weak in the garden. Before dinner take time to walk in the grounds and gardens. I would recommend eating in the dining room with waiter service of tasty crusty breads, chilled Frascati, abundant home made mushroom pasta (primo), grilled fish with a pepper and prawn topping (secondi) and vegetables, and fresh fruit all for €25. Breakfast is included in the room price and is very full with pastries, coffee, juices, breads, meats, cheeses, yoghurts, fruit etc - sets you up for the day. At check-out I was pleasantly surprised that what I had consumed from the frigo bar was ignored even when I mentioned it......and the shuttle took me back to the station to return to hectic Rome.
