Park Hotel Villa Grazioli in Grottaferrata, Italy
Erected in the 16th century, the spectacular Park Hotel Villa Grazioli attracted the celebrated from its very first days. Dukes have resided in this superb patrician villa, and the Marquis de Sade once praised its elegance. Perched on a pastoral hillside, this Small Luxury Hotels of the World affiliate delivers sweeping views from the Tyrrhenian Sea and dazzling nighttime vistas of Rome. Inspired 17th century frescoes make this magnificently restored national monument a living museum.
Life at the villa focuses on leisurely pursuits. Hours can be spent simply strolling the surrounding parklands and their restored Italian gardens. Another quiet pleasure is dining at Acqauviva, serving typical Roman and Mediterranean dishes in the midst of lovely views. If you're feeling outdoorsy, spend an afternoon horseback riding or fishing. And, of course, you'll want to visit the nearby Eternal City—home to the breathtaking Sistine Chapel, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and more.

Reviews for Park Hotel Villa Grazioli
Checking in, overall service, amenities, and location were all great. We had a rental car so we didn't use public transportation to travel back and forth to Rome. Frascati is a nice area to hang out in also. It has a nice downtown area. Ok so, my wife left here purse in her backpack and in the room while we went down to the breakfast area. We had the do not disturb sign left on the door and we locked as we went down. When we got back, we grabbed the backpack and went to see the sites. We went to change out our cash at the exchange counter and noticed her purse was unzipped. Looking through it, we found $310 missing. I was skeptical at first, and was like yeah you just misplaced it. However, also inside her backpack was my passport inside a zipped case and inside it, I put $400 in it. The passport was also inside a zipped compartment within the backpack. $140 had been taken out of the zipped passport, and then placed back into the zipped compartment within side the backpack. What we suspect happened, is that the maid came into our room during breakfast and took money out of our things. And put everything back in place and only took enough where we wouldn't notice at first glance. In hindsight, my wife feels that she noticed the maid watching us leave / return etc. She wears a pink sweater. We talked to the front desk and told them everything. He confirmed that only he and the maid staff have keys to the room but thought it was unlikely that the maid would steal because of how long she worked there. Unfortunately we did not file a police report (which I recommend doing if you have trip insurance because the report is used for your claim) to start getting a record history of this. But we did search through trip advisor to see if previous guests have experienced the same problem. We found only one complaint stating the staff stealing, that's why I'm adding this on here. I also think, due to the way that the theft is happening, most people are not noticing. We also know not to leave our things in our room, but we made the wrong decision. Also to note, there is no safe in the room.
Looking at the photograph it was rather disappointing that we were shown one of the rooms in a nearby annexe, rather like a large motel. This was not exactly what we expected as we had especially chosen the hotel based on the fact that it looked like a traditional Italian villa. Although it was located quite a long way out of Rome we had deliberately picked it for this reason. There was a shuttle service down to the nearby village which was great as there were a couple of good restaurants there. The main good thing about this hotel was the food served which was of excellent quality, heaps of it and fantastic staff in the dining room. But check where you will be sleeping - lack of security for the annexe and pretty ordinary rooms.

We had our wedding at Villa Grazioli in October 2017 and it was simply perfect! We chose Villa Grazioli because of its unique beauty which seemed to us the perfect frame for our to-be wonderful day. We wanted to get married in the breathtaking Galleria Pannini on the first floor and to have a standing reception at the ground floor to move freely around the rooms and to not be forced to use the restaurant. Our aim was lo let the guests enjoy the space and the beauty of all the frescoes. Olimpia, responsible for the organisation of the event at Villa Grazioli, supported us since the very beginning when we first went to visit the venue. She helped us to define exactly what we had in mind with her positive attitude and ideas and we appreciated the flexibility of the organisation team to tailor the event to our desires. Starting from the classical "wedding package" we removed all options that did not fit our style and modified what was important for us. Food was another great aspect: we explicitly said what we had in mind and they came out with ideas that we discussed together to finally nail down our menu. A month before the wedding we went to Italy to discuss the last details and to have a lunch to try the food we selected and we met Beniamino, their maitre. He was the second success key for our wedding party. After a few words we realised we had to nod to each and every suggestion: he does know his job and his idea of how the wedding would have been was perfectly matching ours! He told us how he would have managed the timing, the food presentation, the buffet tables and so on...and he did it. On that day he coordinated all activities without any issue or disruption, managing the serving and the guests perfectly. We did not meet the chef but her food quality was simply outstanding. Our guests loved the gnocchetti with amatriciana rivisitata and the trippa and all other finger foods cooked. Also, they supplied and served the wines we wanted despite not in their wine list.

This Hotel is 30 mins by commuter train outside Rome. Its up on a hill so it has a beautiful view of Rome at night. The commuter train is 5 mins away. The Hotel itself is very nice. The rooms are clean and we had a separate sitting area. The hotel consists of 3 buildings. We stayed in the building closest to the main hotel lobby. There is a nice underground walk way between the building and the main hotel. The views from the hotel are beautiful. While we waited for our room we where served Coffee and cakes. The front desk was always accommodating. I never saw the pool so I am not sure if there is one.The wifi works great on your phone and not so much if you have a laptop. The hotel is 5 mins from Franscatti, where you can stop by the grocery store and pick up wine ( for dirt cheap) and snacks for your room. We at lunch at the restaurant and it was ok and a little pricey. We had better food in Franscatti. The beds where comfy and they split apart on request if you need 2 beds. I would stay here again.

We stayed a night here in the old servants quarters on the ground floor which is separate to the main building. The room had a balcony door which opened up to the outside grounds and the interior was classic, slightly tired but overall comfortable, nice and tidy. The bathroom shower had neon lighting which was odd but a minor detail, the basin sink was not draining water well at all, the minute we turned on the faucet it filled up quickly and drained very slowly. As we were there for a quick overnight stay we did not fuss about it and just used the water from the shower stall. The front desk service was curt. The breakfast spread was what you would expect with cereal, cold cuts and eggs. The breakfast location is downstairs with no views, I would probably not take the breakfast at 10eur per person again (if not included already in room rate). The hotel grounds were beautiful, grand, well maintained and in the evening there is a sweeping view of Rome city lights and beyond. Parking was ample on the hotel grounds. When we stayed, there were coaches of tourists staying there perhaps for an overnight layover on their tour.
