We recently visited Al Vecchio Convento with 3 generations of our family ranging from a two-year-old to +70. The family who owns and operates the hotel and restaurant and every member of their staff was kind and accommodating from start to finish and made each member of our family feel like part of theirs. The rooms were fine and the... More

Different to anything I have experienced in recent years. Health and safety never been heard of, but despite that and the fact that I am in my eighties and on a stick I managed and enjoyed the atmoshpere enormously. I wouldnt change a thing; it would ruin it and attract ladies who lunch and the like. It is something only... More

I stayed here six nights during a recent vacation in Italy and can't say enough good things about this hotel. The family that runs the hotel is terrific, friendly and welcoming. The food is fabulous. I had a half pension that included the best breakfast buffet I've had in any small hotel, and the dinners were four course and all... More

If you want glamour and to strut your stuff this is not the place for you; if you prefer to welcomed into the bosom of the family and absorb Italian culture then you will have struck gold. From the moment of our arrival from Bologna airport until the sad day of our departure we were surrounded by laughter, good food... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Hotel in June, and were made to feel very welcome by all of the family involved in running the establishment. We were on half board, and this has to be recommended for the excellent quality of the evening dinners. Menus were varied and the selection of regional wines extensive at very... More

You arrive up a mountain road, in the midst of a small valley surrounded by a town that hasn't changed or aged in probably 700 years. The Scenery is beautiful and you feel like you've entered a small Swiss or Austrian village. I arrived in November so, Wintertime it was a little chilly, but not really that cold. Massimo the...

Spent a long weekend here hiking in the Casentino National Park, and loved the hotel, the food and the hospitality. An old convent that has been restored without overdoing it, still has the atmosphere of an Italian house from the 50s with cast iron bedsteads, incredibly high ceilings and heavy wooden furniture. Simple but comfortable, wifi works fine but no... More

I've stayed at the hotel twice over the last three years and so far it is the best place I've stayed in Italy for that price range. Where to start, the food is amazing. Full stop. The rooms are basic, super clean but tastefully furnished. The service is attentive without being in your face, a great balance that so many... More

From the warm welcome, delicious food to cozy rooms, The Vecchio Convento totally felt like a home. Totally enhanced my positive experience of Portico staying at this nice location. Totally recommend it to travellers looking for an authentic accomodation
