We read that the rooms facing the vineyards had very good views, unfortunately we were too late and the rooms facing the vineyards were all taken up. Nevertheless, the room we were given was nice. The room and toilet were spacious and beautifully decorated. Love the setting of the breakfast area, which was cosy and warm. Breakfast was scrumptious with... More

Staying with Elio and Stefania at the Hotel Vecchio Asilo for a week was the highlight and a wonderful finale to our Italian vacation celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Bellisimo !!! You can't find a more secluded, romantic, and thoroughly immersive Tuscan hotel. Elio is such a delight and consummate gentleman and chef who served us a wonderful breakfast every... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay here and we would come back in a heartbeat! The location is wonderful with easy driving access to San Gimignano and beyond. The quiet picturesque Tuscan hills are just out your window and your English speaking host is wonderful at providing a memorable breakfast.

This exceptional small hotel provides hospitality second to none all thanks to Elio and Stefania who made our holiday in Tuscany perfect . The hotel is spotlessly clean, the room we had was a good size with lovely views of the countryside. The breakfast provided each morning was unique with a cooked speciality which was different each day, along with... More

Only 10 minutes away from San Gimignano, and 15 mins from lovely small Certado (great place for dinner - L'Antica). I booked it last minute and stayed only one night. The room is quite big and comfortable with a beautiful Tuscan view from the window. Big (accessible!) bathroom. Its a lovely small family run hotel, Arto and his family are... More

What can you ask for more? A kind and courteous host who personally welcomes you to his hotel, offers suggestions regarding itineraries throughout your stay and prepares a sumptuous breakfast of cakes, focaccias, bruschettas, fruit, cheese and cold cuts? The location of this hotel is ideal to reach all major points of interest in Tuscany, including San Gimignano, Volterra, Florence,... More

The hotel owner personaly met us when we arrived and showed us the room and the very smal and personal hotel. The standard is very high and we were really suprised by the comfort of the room. The hotel owner personaly served us home made breakfast and recomended us some really good restaurants in town.

Stayed here for only one night on June 13th; if we had known how good it was, we would have stayed longer. This is listed as a one star hotel. I don't understand. Easily a three star – closer to a four. It is, for sure, better than some four star hotels we stayed in in Italy. As for the... More

We enjoyed a memorable week at this hotel. Our host, Elio and his wife Stephania were truly kind and always helpful in providing wonderful breakfasts, good travel advice and a warm, clean, and very comfortable facility. Located in Ulignano, just outside San Gimignano, enabled us to really see the Tuscany area, which by itself was beautiful and inviting. We would... More
