“Clean, convenient.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Near San Gimignano, this small, clean, no-frills hotel is reasonably comfortable. Their pillows could be better, I woke up with a stiff neck.
We were given a room on the ground floor and our window opened to the nice - even though rather small - garden.
In short: nothing special, but convenient enough.

This ia an outstanding place to stay while in Tuscany, near San Gimignano. It's also within easy driving distance to the Chianti region. More importantly, the hosts work tirelessly to insure you feel welcome and enjoy your stay. Our room on the second floor was large and had a nice bath. More importantly, it was meticulously clean. Breakfasts were a treat with assorted cold meats, cheese, fresh fruit, bread, home baked cakes and pastries, yogurt, bruschetta, coffee, juice, etc, all Served graciously by the host. We stayed three nights and wished we could have stayed another. I would stay here again!

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and I wish it was available for more. This is a very nice hotel. The interior is country style designed that makes you feel like at home.The room was very spacious and clean. The shower has a very strong water flow.
Elio - owner of this hotel was SUPER friendly and helpful willing to make your stay unforgettable. We enjoyed the various and tasty breakfasts he prepared everyday.
We would defiantly stay there again if we go this area again!

We arrived in the afternoon and were greeted by a VERY friendly host. The room was great, the view was fantastic . The rooms are basic but very comfortable and even have a safe !!. The breakfast was more than enough with cereals, bread , cake , yoghurt, fresh fruit , and great coffee. There is water,beer,wine and soft drinks in the fridge to purchase at about half the price of the bars and shops . This is a very good place to stay to explore tuscany No more to be said really, just read other peoples posotive reviews and BELIEVE them

Ever since we read a newspaper review of this hotel 4 years ago we wanted to stay here and we were not disappointed. This place is amazing and our week long stay there was unforgettable. The assortment of meats, cheeses and cakes that Ellio served us every morning was fantastic and the cappucino's were perfect. The room we had was large and comfortable and the service that Ellio and Stefania provided was the best experience of any hotel we have stayed at. They even drove us to the train station and picked us up so we could take the train to Florence for the day.

We got married in the nearby town of San Gimignano during our stay at Vecchio Asilo and Ellio and Stefania were wonderful in helping ourselves and our friends make this special day even better than we could have expected. On the morning of our wedding, Ellio presented us with a bouquet of flowers with breakfeast and upon our return later that evening, we found a bottle of Proseco waiting that completed a perfect day.

I would recommend this place for all the above reasons and many more.

Thanks
Gary and Marilyn

We had made plans to stay at this little hotel for several years. When we decided to get married, we chose to get married in Italy and selected the nearby town of San Gimignano. From the moment we opened the front door of the hotel, Ellio and Stefania went out their way to be the ultimate hosts and provided us and everyone else with the best customer service I have ever experierienced. From the amazing breakfast to being a taxi to take us to the train to go to Florence for the day, they went even further.

On the morning of our wedding there, Ellio presented us with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. When we returned in the late evening after the wedding dinner, there was a wonder bottle of Proseco waiting for us to make our day complete. Ellio and Stefania helped us and our friends in making this a wedding that far exceeded our expectations.

I will stay hear again when I return to Toscana and would recommend this charming little hotel to anyone.

Elio and Stefania, a married couple run the hotel, they were so friendly towards us. The breakfast are AMAZING !!!!!! - home made chocolate cake, pizza, breads, cheeses - enough to do you until dinner time haha - taste is devine. room and view were class, very relaxing, nearby vineyards and san gimanano were awesome and closeby - total chill out, just what we needed after the noneymoon
car rental essential - great recommended close by restaurant - watch out for the mad italin drivers lol
