We received an invitation to attend the Spectaculare Serata di Gala on the occasion of the introduction of the new BMW. We aren't interested in the BMW, but the party was grandiose. The show was spectacular, with dancers, a fashion show, but more wonderful was the public. All sorts of beautiful people and people that weren't so beautiful but had done so much to look stunning anyway. The hotel itself was good, modern appeal, clean and nicely located for visits to the surrounding villas and the town of Frascati. There was a modern looking coffee bar that has a nice simple breakfast and very good ice cream.

Nice place, clean rooms, frendly staff. Frascati is small and it's easy to walk around from the hotel.
Restaurant was a deception, so eating out is the best option. But the bar was ok, with some choices of sandwiches, a variety of beer and single malts.
Internet works well in all places but the bar.

I stayed here with a wedding party and they coped very well with a large, loud party of Aussies and Brits. My room was a twin room and very small (the single beds are tiny) but very clean and everything was modern. Good value for money and they provide a shuttle bus into Frascati town centre. Breakfast was great and there is a 24 hour cafe bar which is good for snacks and drinks. Lovely pool area and although I didn't have dinner there my friends who did eat in the restaurant said the food was lovely.

Seven of us stayed here last weekend. What a beautiful hotel. Everything is new, the standard, cleanliness and "moderness" of the bedrooms is second to none along with the tastefully decorated en-suites and powerful hot showers. All at an excellent price.The staff were friendly and helpful, the bar serves tasty breakfasts and snacks and the pool area is gorgeous. We will be back - a great spot for a pre-Ciampino flight. Loved it.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be the same. Great

We only had one night in Frascati, so whilst we love old, traditional, quirky accommodation, we wanted something very "easy". We'd been travelling and so wanted a good. powerful shower and a very comfortable bed in a room that was spotless. Hotel Villa Mercede, about 1km down the hill from Frascati historical centre, ticked all the boxes - and more. If you want something with a bit of character, first impressions as you pull into the car park can be a bit disappointing. It looks very new (a plus point of you want modern) & does look as if it might lack character. However, once we checked in, we were delighted. Perfect for an overnight stay. Everything we had wanted was there - including a very big shower. The bed definitely stands out as one of the most comfortable on our current trip - and havng travelled a lot in Italy over the last few weeks, we've slept in a lot of Italian beds.The hotel has a pool and an outside terrace - it was a hot afternoon in late September & we took advantage of the pool still being open, followed by an ice-cream & a vino from the bar located right next to the hotel. The gelateri had an extensive choice and is clearly a destination for locals, because as we sat relaxing, there was a steady stream of families & couples arriving, buying ice-cream & driving off. The hotel is about 1km from the centre of town - although it is uphill on the way there, it's not steep and the compensation is that it's downhill on the way back. All in all, a great find for a short stop over in a beautiful city in the hills above Rome.

Good position outside town and perfect for visits to Rome; get the train and see the amazing ancient viaduct on the approach to Rome. On the other hand, the platform at 'Centrale' for the return journey is like that one in Hogwarts - you have to be in the know to find it, and you need to be fit too, as it is a good quarter of a mile walk along the platform before you get to the train.
The hotel is attractive, set back from the road, and has comfortable lounge areas with plenty of seating. The staff generally (with one exception!) are lovely and can't do enough for you. Superior rooms are small, clean and modern, the bed very, very, very comfortable, bathroom fine and toiletries OK but bring your own shampoo. Great views from rooms at the back - across the pool to Rome in the misty (smoggy!) distance... BUT apart from the very few (3 or 4) rooms with terraces there are no balconies, so a secluded read in the sunshine is impossible. The pool area is lovely, they provide towels and have a tiny ice bucket of a bar, but ... and this is an even bigger 'BUT!!!' the musak is terrible and so loud we used our beach towels to cover the speakers - which just about made it irritating rather than exasperating. This musak is everywhere outside and in, with the blessed exception of the room. A huge let down in such a lovely hotel.
Be prepared for a pool party or other event several times a week, this may affect your enjoyment if you have a room near the pool.
Breakfast is very good, with a large range of different foods, fresh pastries and home-made cakes, several different breads, at least 4 different juices, fresh fruit, a choice of milk, incuding soya milk. Hot breakfast is always scrambled egg and "bacon", boiled eggs are usually hard boiled and cold. Coffee absolutely delicious! If you love cereal you may want to bring your own as the choice and quality wasn't that good.
The attached gelateria is good, the ice cream better than anything in town. There were small and very tasty, freshly made pasta and pizza snacks as well as sandwiches. We often bought lunch and water as well as coffee and ice cream - the prices are surprisingly reasonable for Italy let alone for an Italian hotel.
However (another big 'but', I'm afraid), the restaurant for dinner is dreadful. The regular menu is uninspired, it is expensive and it is cooked poorly. If you must go to the restaurant, try to go on fish night and have the fresh fish. And if you are a Brit and book a window table expect to be bumped off if any locals walk in - this happened to us without a word of apology.
Eat in town as the restaurants are good. Try the little open air trattoria set up every evening in squares and on the walls outside the main town centre, you will be served large portions of food of excellent quality and meet some truly wonderful people.The shuttle service from the hotel to town was a real boon and the walk back is downhill. If you have children or are a bit wobbly on your feet then get a taxi back as the surface is cobbled and broken and the roads are dangerous to cross.
We would go back, Frascati is lovely and the hotel overall is good, but we hope the musak stops!

Room Tip: Ask for 'Rome' view. Absolutely beautiful - especially late at night.If you want a terrace b...
