We stayed in this area mostly to visit the Certosa di San Lorenzo - so the location of this hotel is ideal. Their parking lot is directly across the street from the Certosa's entrance. The hotel itself is very modern, and the room was quite large and comfortable. Decor was modern and newish. The staff was efficient, if not particularly... More

The Grand Hotel certosa exceeded our expectations for quality, ambiance and value. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the surrounding towns and villages and we met so many nice people it's hard to start to mane them all. Highly recommended.

We were researching family history in the area and found this hotel mentioned on several websites. We stayed two nights. It is in the valley of Padula opposite the main entrance to the Certosa San Lorenzo. Plenty of parking, not too far off the autostrada. It is very new with furniture in the modern style, lots of marble etc. Top... More

In March 2004, I came to Padula on a bus, at night, speaking very little and poor Italian. The bus stops are in deserted locations with no taxis in site. Fortunately, an Italian friend of mine called the hotel and told them that I was on a bus coming in at 9 p.m. The hotel sent their english speaking waiter... More
