Overview

A luxe, historic castle hotel near Rome, with breakfast, a welcome drink, an optional dinner and more

The Lowdown

Castello Della Castelluccia is a former castle, situated outside Italy’s cultured capital, in the stunning Parco di Veio. The majestic TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, dating back to the 10th century, is set among beautiful, private landscaped gardens, with fountains, colorful flora and a semi-Olympic outdoor swimming pool. Terracotta-floored terraces hold mosaic wrought-iron tables brimming with flowers. You’ll find peace amid the lush green hillside, even though Rome’s captivating sights and famous landmarks are only a short train or car ride away.
This picture of beauty extends indoors, where attention to detail is found at every turn. There’s a spectacular medieval restaurant drenched in royal blues and golds, plus an atmospheric spa where you can luxuriate like the Romans of yore. Sunlight floods in through stained-glass windows, and interiors hold plenty of rich colors, luxurious fabrics and bold touches, like original seating, candelabras, statuettes and giant vases. And, of course, it wouldn’t be Italy without exceptional vino. The extensive wine cellar covers this base, and then some.

Rooms

Exquisite Deluxe rooms combine the castle’s magical allure and medieval ambience with the modern comforts you’d expect from a four-star hotel. Ornate and elegantly styled in rich colors, tactile fabrics and parquet or terracotta floors, the rooms feature dark-wood beamed ceilings and antiquarian furniture. Classic rooms are more spacious than Deluxe rooms.

Dining

Castello Della Castelluccia’s breakfast is a generous buffet selection of fresh fruits, cheeses, ham and breads. The glorious à la carte menu at the Castle’s Locanda (inn) showcases traditional Italian cuisine and fresh, seasonal dishes, for which the perfect accompanying bottle of wine will be recommended. The hotel serves regional and Umbrian-influenced food throughout the day; come evening, a reservation is necessary.

Spa

Discover well-being within castle walls, through quality products and classic personalized treatments. The atmospheric spa comes complete with sculptures and pillared archways and offers a unique wellness experience. There’s a relaxation room with two chaise lounges, plus two Jacuzzis, a Turkish bath and a treatment room for massages (including options for couples).

Location

Castello Della Castelluccia is situated in a quiet setting, but is just under two miles from the ring road, which offers access to Rome. The metro is just over a mile away. The hotel also offers a complimentary shuttle to/from Giustiniana Train Station (operated on request, at set times). These transport links make visits to the Colosseum, Pantheon and other sights a breeze.

Never been to Rome when I got a special from Luxury Escapes in Australia we decided to book. Well very glad we did I came here with my adult daughter. We had our own rooms. Mine 214 was a lot bigger than hers 211 but both rooms were beautiful.
Staff here are all lovely to deal with we never had an issue with any staff understanding us as we speak English. They were so helpful on the 1st day when I was pickpocketed at the station, thankfully they dropped my wallet and took nothing. We had the offer to help us call the police once we were at Castello which impressed me immediately, so I knew from day dot it was going to be a great stay.
We had a deluxe 5 night package and were very happy from our 1st meal which was fantastic. From then on the food was out of this world there wasn’t 1 thing on the menu that we didn’t like.
There is a free shuttle service to the station which we utilized every day and the drivers were all very courteous, opening the doors for us.
We also used the sauna & steam room but couldn’t utilize the spa as I’d forgotten to tell my daughter there was a spa and pool and we left our swimwear in Paris. We also had a massage which was fantastic.
On our last morning we found out our flight back to Paris had been cancelled. I went to reception explained this and was immediately told that they could accommodate us for the night. They’d booked a car to take us to the airport for €60 and called to cancel that until we let them know what was going on.
After we had breakfast we left reception know we’d booked a flight for 1900 and there was no issue rebooking our car or us having 1 of the rooms for the day. Of course there was a fee but that’s fine and expected.
I’m a Personal Cruise Consultant (Travel Agent) staff had no idea of this until our last night. I will be recommending to my clients to book Castello della Castelluccia when they depart from Rome on a cruise.
If I had to rate this Hotel out of a trillion they’d get full trillion marks.
If we ever come back to Rome (which I hope we do) we will definitely be staying here again.
Castello della Castelluccia thank you to all staff and management for a lovely memorable stay from the bottom of our hearts.

The hotel was nice, location was in country so morning runs were great. Train station near by. Restaurant was amazing. Great staff, wonderful food and perfect atmosphere. Rooms were unique and staff was helpful.

Quaint castle outside of Rome.

Stayed here for 2 of the 5 days we were in Rome. The castle was very quiet while we were there, think it was off season. Seems like a beautiful place to have a wedding and reception or anniversary party. We had a room with the Jacuzzi tub/area. Very interesting way it was set up, but was very romantic. We had dinner at the restaurant, it was very good. The shuttle bus picks up and drops off at the train station about 10 minutes away which is nice but it would be really nice if they would shuttle back and forth to the little shopping/grocery area outside of the castle property. It's quite a walk, or if they had an onsite gift shop for small things you may find you need while staying. The buffet breakfast was excellent, be sure to partake. The staff was so kind as well. We loved our visit.

Fairytale setting!

Excellent hotel and restaurant! Easy to reach from Rome’s city center. Several rooms with unique feeling. Perfect for a romantic weekend break. The swimmingpool is large but perhaps a bit too refreshing at times.

Real castle-feeling....

We stayed for one night for a wedding.We arrived at 11am but couldn't get into our room until 3pm, which was a pain, since we travelled with 2 kids, were tiered from the journey and the wedding started at 5pm...
But we do forgive, since the front office really made a huge effort to give us the perfect room so we can hear our baby-phone from the wedding-party in the evening... They took the time and showed us 2 options (main-castle and outbuilding) and we ended up in the most romatic little room inside the castle.
The room appears bit on the "rough" side, but then again you are in a castle and I guess it's part of the "damsel"- feel ;-)
The bath-tub could do with some refurbishment though.
We had a quick lunch (Pasta Napoli) which was good. Service seemed a bit annoyed- but I think this may had to do with the wedding preparations and the place generally being a bit "invaded" by all the wedding guests.
The wedding-dinner was nice and the service very friendly then.
Breakfast was good. Even though it would have been a nice gesture towards the newly weds, if the hotel would have accomodated the buffet for a little longer. The whole wedding-party started breakfast pretty late (obviously it was a late night). The staff basically took everything (including the leftovers of the wedding cake!) away at 10.30am sharp and clearly sent the "get out"- signal to the guests :(.
The pool is lovely and you really feel far away from it all- very relaxing and it had bit of a "Tuscany"- feel to it. We would have liked to stay a night longer before heading to buzzy Rome.
