“its perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

we dont have any problem at all, the staff are nice, the swimming pool is clean and cold which is ideal for summer and we had a free access all the time, the breakfast though its not perfect but i liked the way they prepared in a very traditional way, its just five minutes walk to the city center, the place is not over crowded, the garage is free, the air conditioning system is working well, the water from the shower is abundant, we had a quiet and large room and most of all there is a free candies in the reception. Thank you for everything

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2011

My wife and I spent 4 nights here in a double with an ensuite bathroom. The hotel is a short 5-10 minute uphill (it's not that bad) walk to the Volterra city walls. The room was very spacious and clean with a refrigerator. Ours did not work, but the kind owner offered to let us use the refrigerator downstairs for our drinks and food. The breakfast was quite good and available from 8-10am. The owner was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. While her English was limited, we had no problem communicating.

Some tips for the area...there is a bar next door that serves basic food, cocktails, wine, beer, and coffee. Across from it is a very nice Conad grocery store with all your needs. For a nice local taste, get the salame toscano and some pecorino cheese. Also be aware that the city of Volterra in general pretty much closes its doors by 8-9pm except for a few restaurants.

After one night in another hotel which was one of the worst, Antica Badia was a very welcome change. Clean rooms, friendly staff, free internet in the lobby, and an amazing breakfast compared to other Italian locations. A 10 minute walk from the city, on a quiet street, and near a market for quick shopping. A separate entrance allows for more privacy instead on using the lobby, and free parking in the front.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2009

We were warmly received at this hotel by Sergio and Marzia. The bedroom was clean and comfortable and a lovely breakfast was served in the newly renovated downstairs dining area- fresh bread, cheeses, meats, yoghurt, cereal, juice and coffee, topped off with fresh warm croissants from the kitchen. The hotel is located close to the town centre and private parking is a real bonus.
