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

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.

Pros: Quiet and comfortable

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.

Hotel incrível... Uma viagem no tempo. Uma autêntica abadia com uma vista incrível da cidade! Mais que um hotel, é uma experiência.

Ancient ruins turned into a modern luxury hotel - renovations were outstanding. Stay here for an unusual and unforgettable experience.

The room, and staff were fabulous. The old church and grounds were breathtaking with a view of Orvieto. The food was wonderful and added to a quiet peaceful stay.

Fascinating place to stay, but our room was shabby

Posted 12-Oct-2015
The ancient abbey that has been converted into La Badia is awe-inspiring and provides the backdrop for a lovely and unique hotel experience. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful, and the restaurant food was outstanding. Unfortunately our room was a big disappointment. It appeared to have been last redecorated in the 1980s, cheaply and in a style that was not particularly sympathetic to the grand old structure. Our room was uncomfortable and slightly depressing. We understand that some of the rooms have been updated more recently. This renovation program should be accelerated. The setting of the property is serene, but the location was too far from the town of Orvieto for our needs. If we visit Orvieto again we will look for a hotel within the town walls.

The Badia is a beautiful restored monastery, about 20 min from the center of Orvieto. The breakfast was as good as it could get with very close attention to details. Our only problem, that could be significant was the room that we got, it was not confortable, with a very small bathroom, and only one tiny window for the whole room.... it felt very austere, it was located in the attic. My advice is to double check with the receptionist the options that they can offer, because it felt like a three star hotel. The overall experience is good because of the beauty of the building and commom areas.
