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

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our week in Tuscany and Umbria. First week of June. Loved it! No need to repeat the positive reviews left by other guests; we agree with them all. First impressions count and being greeted by Elio with his sincere smile and welcome when we arrived was a delight. We entered... More

After reading all the reviews, I have expected a lot out of this place. Besides the proximity to San Gimignano (I tend to stay close but not right at a tourist attraction to avoid the crowd and for easier parking), the spacious room, the breathtaking view of Tuscany from the room (ask for one that has such a view, not...

I've been to sleep in this hotel after a very hard day with my family. At the entrance shows one star hotel, but it's five stars! I highly recommend it, the family who runs the hotel is wonderful, the atmosphere is relaxing and the ambient with his bedrooms is rich in details. Very very good breakfast with typical Tuscan fresh... More

Most pleasant with worm welcome attitude by the owners, Mr. Elio and Mrs. Stefania. This hotel is highly recomened and we'll stay again in our next Toscana trip The hotel is strategicly located near San Gimignano and with short access to the main Toscana sights. Haim and Tova. .

I booked this hotel because we had an extra day in between a couple of rentals based on the reviews. It could very easily have been the base for the Tuscany portion of the trip. The rooms are well done and comfortable. The host is one of the nicest and most helpful we have met on the trip. The breakfast... More

Staying here was like winning the lottery. First off, we had no idea we were going to be staying here! We booked accommodations through Tenuta Torciano, a winery in Ulignano. I had stayed at Tenuta Torciano a few years ago, but at the time, I stayed on the property of the winery. It seems the winery has grown a lot,... More

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...
