Reviewed 24 September 2013

Once again the reviews were bang on. This place is a gem! Perfect location to tour the Chianti region, Siena, and of course beautiful San Gimignano.
Very easy to find. The original building was used as a watch tower in the 11C. The rest of the building was added on in the early 20's. Beautiful woodwork throughout.

We arrived a bit early at 12:30 pm and we were able to check into our room.
Both our host and hostess were lovely and very friendly. They gave excellent instructions on where to park in San Gimignano and where to have a wonderful dinner.

Our room was on the main floor and very large with a king size bed and spacious bathroom. The views from the room were breathtaking. Everything was neat and tidy and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were white and crisp and pressed. Our room had a small sink in the room itself as well as a separate bathroom.

The bathroom had a stand up shower, white fluffy towels and complementary toiletries. There was a wall mounted hair dryer that sounded like a jet engine. Unfortunately it didn't work to well for my long hair but this was the only downside.

The breakfast was worth the stay. Don't rush to fill up on yogurt and cereal. They served tasty meats and cheeses as well. But the best was the freshly baked bread and cakes, including pizza! Freshly made to order coffee and finally a beautiful plate of fresh fruit.

We loved this place and highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Corner suite on main floor was large and sunny with a great view and an oversized bathroom.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights (9/13 - 9/17/13) at this hotel. Elio the owner is an excellent host. He's informative, extremely helpful and a pleasure to be around. The hotel rooms are very clean. The breakfast was over the top. By far the best breakfast we found in the 4 hotels we stayed on our trip. Everyday Elio provides different freshly baked goods, fruits and other treats in addition to the standard items. The quality and quantity of food were excellent. There are two outside terraces which offer views of the surrounding countryside. Great places to relax with an "adult beverage" after a long day of sightseeing. This is a great location, close to San Gimignano and equidistant to Siena and Florence. Great hotel

Room Tip: The rooms in the front of the hotel are right on the road to San Gimignano. The hotel is located at...

We stayed two nights at this fantastic Hotel which ticks all the boxes. Its location for touring Tuscany is ideal. 'Elio' the perfect host, and font of all knowledge as to where and when to visit the many sights nearby. His recommendations for places to dine out were great. The breakfast is absolutely fantastic.This hotel certainly sets the standard for customer service. We very much hope to return and stay here again. Thank you Elio for a fantastic stay at your hotel.

A beautiful hotel in a beautiful location.

We stayed here for a couple of days after the busy waterways of Venice and before heading south to the madness of Rome - our 25th wedding anniversary mini Italian tour. It is a fantastic little hotel in a beautiful location in the heart of the Chianti region. Elio & Stefania are superb hosts and clearly put a great deal of effort into ensuring their guests enjoy a top quality stay.

It is easily the best of the hotels we stayed in on our trip....And the breakfast is a delight.

We would highly recommend it for both couples and families. It's a real gem!

Room Tip: There are only 7 rooms, and we were there with friends so we were using 2 of them. None of us was di...

We wanted to see Tuscany but stay in a convenient location, close to most of the popular regions and found Hotel Vecchio Asilo not only the perfect location but an amazing little hotel, with the European charm we wanted and the friendliest hosts we ever met.
Breakfast was prepared to the highest standard with all organic produce and giving us the opportunity to sample local dishes and Stefania's delicious cakes. There are plenty of restaurants in San Gimigniano, where you can have affordable meals. We were impressed with the locals' commitment to only use local produce, so most of the dishes contained the traditional wild boar but cooked in enough ways to offer variety.
Renting a car was a good decision, as it's the best way to explore the region. We didn't have a SatNav and were worried about finding our way around but our fantastic host, Elio was the best guide we could have asked for. He suggested interesting routes we could take and gave us step by step directions that helped us to never get lost.
Thank you Elio and Stefania for making our holiday an amazing one!

Absolutely delightful B&B just outside San Gimigniano. Our second stay here. Wonderful room overlooking a lovely valley, clean, beautiful. Elio and Stefania could not be more gracious hosts...they treat you like long cousins. Wonderful breakfast. And situated such that day trips to all of the Chianti region is easy. We even drove to Montalcino with ease. Highly recommend...you won't find a warmer, more hospitable place to stay. Oh, and very reasonable rates, to boot.
