My daughter and I have just stayed here for 3 nights on a short trip to Rome flying in and out of Ciampino. It is 5 minutes by taxi from the airport - ask the hotel to book one for you, it's still 20 euro but a lot less than picking one up at the airport and only 15 euro going back. We arrived at 9.15am, our room was ready and we were given croissants even thought all the other guests had already finished breakfast and we weren't even supposed be able to check in until the afternoon. The room was spotlessly clean and very spacious - they couldn't do a twin room for one of the nights we needed so we were given a triple, with a beautiful bathroom, mini fridge and a small private patio garden with steps directly up to the pool. All the staff were extremely helpful, selling us train tickets into Rome (the station is a 5 minute walk away with trains hourly or half hourly depending on the time of day right into Termini station), giving us a timetable and map of the city and looking up ways to get to Frascati without a car (not really possible without an expensive taxi ride, so an excuse for another visit!) Luca on the reception desk recommended the Estro Gusto restaurant which is right around the corner, this has mixed reviews but we thought it was excellent and extremely good value for money, full of locals which is always a good sign. There are really no negative points, but it would perhaps have been nice to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room and some glasses - the hotel does not have a bar but there is one close by which sells very drinkable local wine in small bottles from their fridge, however it loses some of it's appeal when you have to drink directly from the bottle! The breakfast when served in the room is enjoyable but pretty basic - juice, coffee and croissants, there looked to be a much better selection available in the breakfast room beside the pool, but we were too lazy to get up to go and see until our last morning when we had to leave for the airport so that was our own fault. All in all a very pleasant stay and very good value for money, I would definitely stay here again when visiting Rome.
