Lovely place for first night in Italy!

Posted 05-Sep-2016 on Hotels
My very first night in Italy - what a wonderful experience. This is NOT a modern hotel - it is a very old monastery that has been renovated into a hotel. If you love off the beaten track, historic hotels - this is the one to pick. Lovely staff (hi Marco!), good breakfast, beautiful photogenic grounds. Lovely stay. They even held our luggage and arranged for transportation to Orvieto so we could site see while waiting for our train after check out. If you want away from the chain hotels and feel secluded in the Tuscany hills, this is your pick! Someday I will be back!

More like a 3 star than a 4 star

The staff was friendly and the breakfast was really good. The room was fine for Italian standards and I chose the lower cost room. The pool area was not so maintained and the water in the pool had a lot of trash floating in it. Path to the pool was a bit rustic. I felt the hotel was a bit tired, we were likely one of two rooms being rented during this night.

step back in time

Posted 24-May-2016
The abbey is restored for modern comfort, but maintains all of the character of the 12 century structure. It was simply amazing to be able to spend a night in such a historic monument. Just outside of the walls of Orvieto. Getting into the city was easy with convenient parking. Having a car to visit this hotel is the best way to travel here. If you are going by train, it could be done as well, but less convenient.

Unfulfilled expectations

Posted 16-May-2016
Hotel is shabby and in desperate need of upgrading. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and had bed bugs. The hotel restaurant was passable but not up to expectations. It's too bad the hotel is so poorly maintained as it is a lovely historical site, has a beautiful view and is close to the centre of Orvieto.

Pretty castle hotel

Posted 30-Nov-2015 on Hotels
La Badia is a beautiful castle hotel just outside the walls of Orvieto. The property is amazing and the onsite restaurant is excellent. The room itself was average, but worth the price to stay in an historic property.

Historic

Pros: Quiet and comfortable
Cons: Bed comfort
Location: City tour
Very quite restful place surrounded by history. Away from the city and not crowded by tourist. The site itself holds a lot history and interest.
