“Feels Like Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

My husband and I have stayed at the LaBadia Hotel 5 times. We would not consider going to Italy without stopping by for a few days. We have enjoyed it every single time. Each room we have had has been different. We take the standard room choice and have never been disappointed. Several of these times, we have traveled with others and felt that the Hotel was our own private castle!! November is not a big travel month so few people are there at that time. But, the breakfast buffet is always fresh and well stocked as though they are expecting many more people. The croissants are devine. The gentleman who runs the breakfast buffet is the same one as the first time we visited, so accommodating. The restaurant is an experience in itself. The restaurant staff this year spoke English very well which we really appreciated, although we missed the older gentleman that ran the place for several years. Thank you, LaBadia staff. We look forward to the next time.

Dear mcclureliz,

As always it was a pleasure to welcome you back to your own private castle! We thank you for your kind words of praise .

( the croissants are so good because they come from France :)

Looking forward to see back soon.

A very nice and charming hotel to relax at after a hectic city trip to Rome. Also very nice to combine with a visit to Orvieto. The hotel is great and I can recommend it to everyone. It is an ideal place for just lounging about at the pool and enjoying nice food and wine.

This hotel is a real treat. It is a beautiful old monastry set in gorgeous grounds and the service will probably not be beaten in Orvieto (or even in central Italy). We upgraded to a deluxe room and it was incredibly spacious. The breakfast was good too.
In my opinion it is a bit pricey for what you get though. The decor in the rooms is a little dated - it does fit in with the style of the hotel however, if that is what you are looking for.
We were a little disappointed that there was not a bath in such a large room. There was no welcome pack and no tea and coffee making facilities in our room. You will need a car to travel to Orvieto as it is around 3km away and would be difficult to walk over the roads to it. La Badia is on the other side of the valley.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay at La Badia and especially enjoyed being able to see the beautiful building (and spot our room) from the Duomo in Orvieto.
Go here for a special occasion and if you value service higher than location.

Dear Caroline 2006,

Thank you for your nice review, it was a pleasure to have you as our guests.
We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we treasure your opinion, we didn’t know you required a bath tub, if requested we would have been more than happy to assign a room with bath tub. Subject to availability we are always happy to accommodate our guests request, La Badia rooms come equipped with either shower, bath tub or both.
As the rooms have been restored in different periods the rooms décor changes, with some rooms more traditional and some more modern. Due to the uniqueness of La Badia no two rooms are alike.
La Badia is about 3 km from the center of Orvieto, about 25 minutes’ walk, for our guests that choose to visit us without a car we can arrange taxis or private chauffeur driven cars.
I would like to take this opportunity to announce a few improvements in our services for
2012( starting from April 2012):

• We are offering In Room Spa services that will allow our guest to enjoy massages and beauty treatments in the convenience of their room .
• All rooms will have free wi-fi access as most of the common areas .
• Our Deluxe and Suite rooms will have Tea & Coffee making equipment .
• In our Deluxe and Suite rooms guest will find a welcome gift upon arrival .
• Most of our rooms will have iPhone, iPod, smart phone docking stations .
• We will expand the number of Italian and foreign TV channels available in our rooms .
• At guest disposal there will be a large and welcoming family room with large screen TV, videogames, movie selection, table and card games .
• We are establishing collaborations with the best local providers to offer our guest many extra services during their stay: private tours with English speaking driver, private guides, various interesting courses, wine tastings and wine tours, multilingual babysitting, horse riding, rafting etc.

To keep abreast with our expanding services please visit our site .
Looking forward to welcome you at La Badia .
Best Regards to all from a misty day in Orvieto!

What a beautiful location! What a breathtaking property....so quiet, so peaceful. Provided us with a break after a hectic week of travel. We had a large room overlooking the center court yard which was very comfortable. The staff was most accommodating, and although pricey, the restaurant superb. Highly recommended....and you won't be disappointed.

We spent two nights at La Badia in mid-October. We have been to Italy many times and have stayed in some magnificent hotels, but this ranks among my favorites, for several reasons. First, staying in an old monastery is just fun and different. The grounds are very well maintained. The rooms are not huge, but it's a monastery, after all. The breakfast was lovely, plenty of fresh and varied foods. When we woke up in the morning, we heard the pastry van pulling up with its delivery. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The location of La Badia was perfect for us. It took only about 1 1/2 hours by car from the airport in Rome. This was about the most we wanted to drive after a 9 hour flight, so it was great to be able to rest up in a quiet location. It only took us about 5 minutes to drive to the main parking garage in Orvieto, also very convenient. We took a trip to Civita Bagnareggio (highly recommended), and intended to go to another town in the afternoon, but we wanted to spend more time just hanging out at La Badia. We ended up sitting outside with cappucinnos and cookies brought to us by the staff. I hated to leave and will definitely try to stay there again.

Room Tip: We had read that the rooms were a little small, so we decided to spent just a little more and upgrad...

My husband and I returned to this spectacular property for our 20th anniversary, having stayed here first just days after we were married. We found that the ancient abbey, so lovingly restored, was in wonderful condition. The staff was friendly and attentive. Maurizio, in the restaurant, treated us as family. His obvious pride in his county and the abbey were infectious. After days of visiting tourist attractions, we enjoyed a peaceful and relaxed day exploring and photographing the property. Rejuvenated, we again explored the surrounding attractions (Orvieto, Civita Di Bagnoregio . . .) only to return to the haven of La Badia to be further spoiled!

We stayed at La Badia last week.
It is a lovely place. The rooms could use a little updating but they were clean and everything worked. The grounds are stunning.
We also enjoyed a fine meal in the restaurant.
