Visiting La Badia is like stepping into a fairytale. My husband and I held our wedding at La Badia di Orvieto last month (finally, after having to postpone for the last two years due to covid). It was quite simply the most wonderful weekend we could have ever imagined. First of all, the place itself is pure magic. We had booked La Badia as our venue on the basis of photos we had seen (our fantastic wedding planner had previously held a wedding there and the photos were gorgeous). As soon as we arrived at the venue for our wedding weekend and walked around the grounds, we felt as if we were in a fairytale, walking back in time. Some of the reviews comment that the hotel isn’t modern enough- but that’s part of the magic of this place and I think if you visit this hotel you should manage your expectations in terms of modernity. The rooms are beautiful and tastefully appointed and clean. They are not overly modern though and nor would I want them to be. You feel the entire hotel is steeped in history and that is the beauty of it. I’ve never been to another hotel like it. The breakfast at La Badia is also very good - the food was all high quality and there’s a large variety of food (and even some gluten free options). The bar is also open all day and they make absolutely fantastic sandwiches - the ingredients are excellent, especially their bread. The most breathtaking part of this hotel is the Sala Capitolare where the arch is located- this is where we had our wedding dinner and it was spectacular. However, all of the grounds are stunning. The chapel on the grounds where we had our ceremony was so beautiful and serene. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect spot for our ceremony. Our guests also made good use of the swimming pool and tennis court over the course of the weekend. That weekend in May was about 30 degrees Celsius so our guests really enjoyed being able to get into the pool to cool off. Moving onto the fantastic people- they worked tirelessly during our wedding weekend to coordinate with our wedding planner to ensure that all went seamlessly. They truly cared about making sure we had a wonderful weekend, and we so appreciated their kindness and dedication. Rossella, Andreina, Tommaso, Manuel - thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your hard work, dedication and kindness. La Badia is the most magical place, and that weekend will be in our memories forever. We were pinching ourselves the whole weekend as we couldn’t believe how lucky we were to get married in such a stunning location. I can’t say enough positive things about this hotel. I would 100% recommend a stay here - soak up all the beauty it has to offer. We can’t wait to return!

Awesome location just 5 minutes from the old city. The property would require some refurbishment for hydraulic system (plumbing). Breakfast is done in the old refectory it is lovely but quality it is of the level for a 4 stars. Room is clean with lovely blanket

Planning a wedding at La Badia during covid turned out to be a terrible experience. We paid a deposit to hold a date in good faith, however because of travel restrictions the date was no longer possible. Other vendors and hotels we booked in Italy were extremely understanding and kind and refunded us immediately. La Badia refuses to pay back any of our deposit despite only holding a date that was not possible under unprecedented circumstances. La badia is no longer responding to our emails and we have no way to get in touch with them. They would not provide any contact information for us to speak to management. As someone who was extremely excited to have my wedding at La Badia and has had many friends stay there it is disappointing that we cannot recommend anyone to visit in the future.

Spectacular, Stunning and amazing are just some of the words I would use to describe this venue. My wife and I had our wedding here in June 2019 and it was the best decision we ever made. We are both from Ireland and so travelled to Italy one year before the date to look at venues. All in all we looked at 24 venues across all of Italy and La Badia was our final stop. We wanted a venue close to a town that could cater for over 100 travelling guests. As the venue itself is located less than five minute drive from the town, this meant that all out guests could experience an Italian wedding and an Umbrian town. The town itself has so much history, nice shops, narrow streets, churches, and fantastic restaurants. As soon as we checked in for the first time and walked out to the courtyard, we knew we had found our venue. The venue overlooks the cliffs of Orvieto and the views across the valley are breath taking. This venue ticks all the boxes. Exclusive use, Rooms on site, Close to beautiful town, Church on the grounds and amazing food. We didn’t have a wedding planner but Andreina, Tommaso, Rossella & team are all so helpful and accommodating. They helped us all along the way. We did travel to the venue once more to do a tasting and speak to a Florist. The day of the wedding was perfect. After breakfast I was able to go for a swim to unwind while the bridal party got ready. We had a catholic ceremony in the church at 4 pm followed by an aperitif in the garden overlooking Orvieto. From there we moved to the Archway and had dinner while the sun set, followed by Dessert in the court yard. By this stage, our band Guty and Simone had already set up here and so we were able to dance into the night. The food on the day was incredible. We can’t wait to celebrate future anniversaries at this venue. Sergio & Danielle (Dublin Ireland)

Celebrating my wife’s birthday and a major wedding anniversary. We had started our travels in Italy after college and our first stop was Orvieto almost 50 years ago. We returned and selected this property and were not disappointed. Usually We do not eat in the hotel but the restaurant was not only exceptional but the setting perfect. Our suite had wonderful views of Orvieto.

We booked a single night here as an excursion from our week in Rome. The Hotel was beautiful, the staff was scarce, but there were only 8-10 guests there that night. We rented electric bikes by the train station and rode up to the hotel. We booked a suite and were very happy with the accommodations and the view. The primary attraction is the town, and we did not want to ride the bikes at night, so the hotel put us in touch with Paolo, who drove us into town and was waiting for our call when we finished dinner. We really enjoyed the stay and would stay again

The main issue is the woeful understaffing that renders the place unworkable despite the staff trying their best. The neglected pool and poolside with cracked and uneven decking and surrounds. Bits and pieces, such as old plastic bottles, tools, etc. just left strewn around near the pool as well as unkempt or empty planters, etc., all of which with a little care and attention could be sorted out. We initially were given a room that had such a small shower (possibly the smallest I have ever been in) that we were given the honeymoon suite that was NOT in the main building. Despite it being 'their premium' room, it was frigidly cold and we spent an awful night shivering in a bed that smelled of damp! The next day we were moved to a room in the main building that was just as good and DRY. The so called 'fine dining' restaurant is very mediocre. We travel globally several times a year and eat at Michelin star restaurants as well as other fine dining restaurants and this one didn't come close. My partner had one of the worst pasta and truffle dishes he had eaten in 50 years of visiting Italy. I opted for Veal Cheek in a rosemary jus, that was an unnecessarily huge portion that was possibly beef, that had a small amount of congealed tasteless jus. I had already returned the Primi course of pasta as it was so over-salted that it made one's tongue curl! The breakfasts are also very average with a poor selection of mainly sweet cakes, lesser quality prosciutto and salamis and cheese and no decent bread at all. The croissants are taken from the freezer, baked dark to attempt to crisp but fail miserably and are totally flaccid and inedible. Shame on them!

Stayed here our first night in Italy and we are very glad we did. The service and setting was beautiful. It set the tone for the next seven days of visiting towns in Tuscany and Umbria. The room was large and comfortable, right off the courtyard. We were able to drive to the parking garage for the Orvieto escalator in less than ten minutes. The breakfast was amazing in a setting that you will not forget. Would definitely recommend this property.

Booked this hotel for 4 nights as it was just down the hill from Orvieto Medieval town. As it is an old Abbey and it gave you a feeling of going back in time. The furniture was old, but that was part of the charm. The staff were very quick to try and fix our air-conditioning problems and give us a fan but after 2 nights we left as it was still too warm in our room. The restaurant (we sat outside) was a disappointment. Service was slow and although my dinner tasted great my husbands was mediocre. The staff did not care. Rules at the hotel are that you cannot bring any outside food or wine inside the abbey. Really? It would have been nice to sit in the courtyard and have a picnic of sliced meats/cheeses and wine. Pool area needs an upgrade. Tiles are falling off and the area just feels creepy. Wifi did work everywhere so that was a plus. Breakfast was good.

A little outside of Orvieto but just a 5 minute drive. Idyllic place, 12th century abbey. 130 euro for superior room. That's reasonable. But enjoy the setting, it is rare. Have a drink in the courtyard. Have dinner outside. A marvelous environment. Room was fine, but remember it is an old abby. A highlight of our trip to Orvieto.
