Advice where to stay OUTSIDE Rome

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Will be in Rome Oct and Nov 2019 and wondered if anyone can recommend a 4 or 5 star hotel to stay at on the outskirts of Rome with easy taxi access daily in to Rome? Thank you.

How far outside Rome do you want, and why?

When you say 4* or 5*, what do you consider in a hotel that makes them that rating?
Be aware that in Italy hotel star ratings have a specific legal definition, and it does not mean luxury or quality or amenities. For details on what star ratings in Italy mean see

One-star hotels: reception must be open at least 12 hours a day; cleaning of rooms at least once a day; minimum size of double rooms 14 square meters; change of sheets once a week.

Two-star hotels: must have an elevator; change of sheets at least twice a week.

Three-star hotels: must have a bar service, receptionists must speak at least one foreign language; the reception must be open at least 16 hours a day; personnel must wear a uniform; each room must have internet services and private bath.

Four-star hotels: in addition to daily cleaning, the room must be re-set in the afternoon and sheet and towels must be changed daily; must offer laundry services to clients; must have parking for at least 50% of the rooms; double rooms of at least 15 square meters and bathroom of at least 4 square meters.

Five-star hotels: reception must be open 24 hours a day and must offer at least 3 foreign language capabilities; single rooms must be of at least 9 square meters and double of at least 16 square meters.

star level doesn't matter that much -- what is your actual budget? And is there a reason you want to stay outside the city if you plan on taxi-ing in every day?

Are you going to be working ot attending a school in a set location in Rome? - If so, where? If not - is this a sightseeing trip?

Why do you want to be on the outskirts? Trying to hide from the Family?

Almost the whole country is with in taxi range of Rome. It just starts adding up.

Even if you're driving there are places inside Rome but outside of the ZTL with parking.

I would have looked in Fiumicino which is a great little coastal town with super restaurants and good transport into Rome.
