Staying at Hotel Vecchio Asilo which is run by Elio and Stephania was one of the highlights of our trip. They are fantastic hosts and make you feel like nothing is too much trouble. The view from our room was fantastic and the room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast room is cosy and comfortable and the food was... 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

Though I share the concerns of reviewers who have pointed out valid shortcomings: proximity to the roadway (hard by a switchback & blind sight line hill top, which presents safety issues, for parking, as well as noise issues); lack of public areas, other than the breakfast area - and would add a nitpick that, in our case, we had difficulty...

The owner of this property, Elio, was so gracious and friendly we hated to stay just one day. It is located so that you can visit many places and even take the 45 min train to Florence. I would call this a basic hotel for short stays and would book again. A few items to consider. No A/C, and street... More

We just returned from vacation in Italy and the highlight was our stay at this hotel for 7 nights. Elio makes you feel at home right away. Our room was large by Italian standards and decorated in such a Tuscan way. You really felt like you were staying in wine country. The view from our room was just beautiful overlooking... More

We spent in Veccio Assilo 10 unforgettable days this July together with my wife and 13 years old daughter. While planning our summer vacations in Tuscany it took me not more than 10 minutes to decide on this hotel based on the impressive number of positive feedback here in the tripadvisor. The reality was even more pleasant than we expected.... More

Just back from a tour of Tuscany and Umbria and a 2-night stay at Hotel Vecchio Asilo en route back to airport. First time there (and in the region) - overall, this hotel greatly contributed to the enjoyment we had from our trip. The host, Elio is very friendly and welcoming but in an efficient and professional way. Check in... More

When booking my hotel for San Gimignano, I assumed Vecchio Asilo was in the centre of the old town. Obviously, I hadn't done my research properly, for this little hotel is actually in a totally different town - Ulignano. My careless mistake turned out to be a blessing, as VA is a sweet little stead, with the charming and friendly... More
