Our 2nd visit to Vecchio Asilo did not disappoint - it was just as good as we remembered it from our visit in 2013. In fact, one thing is better - responding to his guests' requests, owner Elio now offers a "light supper" option for those who want to have dinner on the beautiful terrace overlooking the valley - thank...

The hotel is in a middle of nowhere so it is far to everywhere- 15 min driving to Saint Gimigiano? Rooms are really poor and quality of sleep is very low. The only advantage is nice and kind Owner. I think that with some investment the hotel could be good place for tired travellers between Rome and Florence. Reading all... More

Located just abt. 5 km from San Gimignano this historic property is out of the hubbub but close by car to so much. Part of this charming building was a outpost watchtower for the medieval town of San Gimignano. Our host Elio was vital in the enjoyment of our stay. He was ready to recommend restaurants and arrange reservations as... More

As other reviews have said, the best thing about this amazing place is the owner. He is extremely friendly and helpful, and prepares a great breakfast for everyone each morning. He gave us recommendations of places to eat dinner and walks we could take around the local countryside. The room itself was simple and clean. We were in the room... More

We were very happy w/ this inn b/c of the sweetness & kindness of Elio and the amazing breakfasts; nothing was too much trouble for him. He made us feel very comfortable. I am big on afternoon tea and he showed me where the teabags, teapots, creamers, cream, trays, etc were and every afternoon i would make a tray of... More

This small bed and breakfast was selected because it was close to San Gimignano and accessible to many of the hill towns and we were very happy (enthusiastically) with our choice. We were two parents with an adult daughter sharing a large room with good sized bath. Our room was in the front, so there was some road noise as... More

I wish we had hotels like this for our whole trip in Italy. The hotel isn't glamorous or huge (1 star) but it is perfect for what you need and for the price far better value for money than other places we stayed at. The rooms are large and had all the necessary amenities - ask fir room with view... More
