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.

Reviews for Park Hotel Villa Grazioli
This is my honeymoon, three days out of Rome to start.. we are Canadian this, weather is nice, the pool is not open or the leaves not showing.... we are not roman gods š Locals in Francisco wonder why we stay out of town when the weather is not Favourited. But the shuttle picks us up free, the front desk is very helpful and friendly, the food is well prepared and shown. Everyone working here try's very hard to make you happy! So as Canadian as I am... this place is what you make it and it shadows the person you are! If your not happy...... well you probably never are. The people working at this place are amazing individuals and I'm impressed with the hospitality and individuality they offer to each guest.

A superb location if you don't want to stay in the heart of Rome. The main building is very scenic. Staff were very accommodating during our trip, helping us make restaurant bookings and the like. The breakfasts were one of the best we had in Italy. Nice pool and great regular bus shuttle service into Frascati and back to the hotel. I recommend getting a room that leads onto the garden.

Have stayed here for the last five years and it is a totally relaxing stay. Only complaint being that there wasn't enough staff available to order drinks on the Saturday night before we went into Frascati for dinner. Ate in the restaurant on Sunday and the food and service was exceptional.

Great food in the hotel dining room. Cured salmon as a starter was lovely. Then oxtail fusilli - homemade and very tasty (a perfect Winter dish). Followed by a beautiful T bone beautifully cooked served with a simple salad. And the Sea Bass which some of my dining companions chose looked fabulous too. The service is attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. And the wine selection varies and god value for an establishment of this quality. Good solid Italian cooking that is reliable, dependable and enjoyable. We've been quite a few times over the years and never had a bad dinner there.

I booked our room at Villa Grazioli nearly 6 months before our trip. When we arrived, the hotel told us our room was not available. They did not email or call us before hand to let us know - they waited until our arrival. We did not have plans to go to Grottaferrata - we chose to spend our last night at Villa Grazioli because we were intrigued by the history and the architecture. We wanted to stay in a palazzo or estate and we looked at different options for our last night in Italy. We seek out different types of places to stay when we travel and always look for places that are unique and interesting. I was looking forward to staying there immensely. Now, perhaps the room at Villa Grazioli and our stay would have been as crappy as the place they sent us to, but that would have been my mistake and not a place that was forced upon me without choice. Had they notified me earlier that day, we could have made our plans or decided to go with theirs. As they did not inform us, we did not get that choice. This is unacceptable in my opinion, as the desk agent informed me that they knew early that morning that our room was not available. When we arrived the place was full and there was some kind of business conference taking place. I don't know why our room was cancelled - they said something about heat, but I think it probably had more to do with their conference. Clearly they overbooked and we were made to pay for their error. Not to mention that I think they should have notified us when the entire place was booked up for a conference as this would have greatly affected our stay. The common areas were not available for use and we were told the restaurant was not available. Now, perhaps the heat was not working and our room could not be stayed in and they could not accommodate us otherwise - the very least they could have done is to offer us some options or some consideration. I recall this happening once before in my past and the hotel that had overbooked our room put us up in the best hotel in the best room at their expense. We were not treated with kindness or even common courtesy. Book at your own peril. You may arrive to find your room cancelled.
