After a hair raising drive through really, tiny streets we reached Il Lavatoio (note to self - don't use sat nav once you reach the center of old Italian towns). The hotel is lovely - the old town 'washing room' preserved with a modern hotel attached. Wifi coverage was good although it got a little slow at night. The hotel... More

This hotel sits atop Castel di Sangro, and the investment in creating a beautiful property around an historical washing site is obvious. The staff (Cecco) was extremely helpful and courteous -- including pointing us to some great stops in the parco nazionale. We visited during shoulder season, but for 65E our double room was a ridiculous value (breakfast included). The... More

We visited Castel di Sangro during a family trip to Italy, connecting with family of our immigrant grandparents. The hotel is lovely with a courteous staff, nice rooms, comfortable beds and nice breakfast. The local church is next door and the bell tower chimes every 15 minutes, even during the night. Light sleepers should bring earplugs.

I stumbled on this hotel by accident and was hugely impressed. The staff were polite, brilliantly helpful and made me feel very welcome. The rooms are spotless, the decor stylish and the breakfast absolutely delicious. A great deal of time and money has clearly been invested in this hotel and it shows where ever you go in the building. I... More

We stayed four nights with our family, and it was a fabulous hotel. Clean, appealing, lovely hosts, and perfectly located in Castel di Sangro. I would recommend to anyone considering a visit not only in this town, but other nearby towns. It's a beautiful part of the country and il Lavatoio is an excellent spot to see it from!

The Hosts - do everything they can that you will feel both in vacation and at home! It is really more than 10! Thank You !

From the moment that the owner, Pier Francesco, met my family and I at Napoli Airport (we paid extra for transfer to the hotel) he and his staff made up feel very welcome. The interior of the Hotel is a superbly restored wash house and a history lesson in itself. There is also a themed photographic exhibition and small library.The... More

We stayed here on June 3rd. Our group of eight consisted of two family groups. Both families descended from Castel di Sangro or another nearby town. We wouldn't have even visited Castel di Sangro otherwise, and that's a shame because this is an absolutely beautiful property beneath the cathedral. Our terrace had stunning views of Castel di Sangro and the... More

Excellent hotel, with a friendly staff (father and son). They speak English, and are very helpfull. Just ask them where to go, and they will print you a route you'll never forget. Nor will you ever think of going to the places they advise you to go. And that goes for the restaurants as well. Just follow their advice, and... More

The hotel is in a charming village and is very nice. The room was comfortable and the breakfast delicious, the owners friendly, and we really liked the modern interior design. There is a very nice pizza place just minutes away by car that also serves meat, vegetables and all sorts of delicious food for a very reasonable price. The only... More
