“wonderful stay”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed 2 nights and the hotel had a terrific vibe. The host was so helpful and his breakfast was absolutely first class. The room was spacious and very warm and I would highly recommend this wonderful hotel.

We stayed here one night on our way to Florence. Elio and Stefania welcomed us with genuine warmth, and Elio gave us excellent recommendations for dinner in San Gimignano and wine tours in the area. The morning we had breakfast, Elio made us a feast that left us satisfied until dinner! We highly recommend you stay with Elio and Stefania if you are in the area.

Had the pleasure of staying here in February 2014. The accomodation was of the highest standard and Elio was the perfect host. The breakfast was also fantastic with homemade cakes bicuits and regional delicasies that enriched our stay further.

We stayed here for four nights in June 2013. Elio and his wife Stefania are so very nice and accommodating. I still think of their breakfast today. Very clean, great location, beautiful!
You will not be disappointed !

We stayed there with my husband in June for just one night. We even considered changing our tickets in order to stay longer. The hotel is small and is run by its owners but the room was really large and had amazing views of the toscan landscape! We were in our honeymoon and they left a lovely base of freshcut roses from their garden with a card, it really topped our day.

The service is amazing and they have a chocolate cake that is to die for, I even asked them for the recipe and they gave it to me! (tried it, lets say baking is not my thing but i'm working on it). Also the recommendation on the restaurant was spot on, it was a great dinner in the most beautiful little town.

There is not enough words to express my gratitude to Stefania & Elio (Owners) for making this stay the most memorable of our honeymoon. (we visited many places in Europe, but this definetly became our favourite).

Room Tip: We stayed in a corner and had viwes from every window. ask for it id You can

We spent an idyllic 5 nights in this little heaven on earth last month to celebrate my wife's xx birthday!- not allowed to say which one! Elio has to be the perfect host. His care for his guests and attention to detail is amazing - especially at the breakfast table, second to none, and I say that as a seasoned traveller throughout France and Italy of more than 30 years standing. All the reviews for this hotel already logged on accurately portray a great little hotel where service is as near to perfect is it is possible to achieve, and that is saying something!

We were treated throughout our stay as real friends with charm and graciousness by Elio and Stephania , and left with sadness and a determination to return some day. The region has many places of interest and beauty, especially in the hills of Chianti, well worth a leisurely visit, especially if interested in the extraordinary history associated with it. Read up on the Medici family history to add colour and interest to your trip!
Hotel Vecchio Asilo is most highly recommended.

We just left the hotel vecchio asilo this morning and cannot wait to return. We found the hotel via trip advisor and every comment is spot on. Yes it is a 1 star rated hotel but don't let that discourage you from booking. The hospitality you receive will be unforgettable!!!! Elio was away harvesting olives and stefania was manning the hotel all alone. She is such a sweet woman. Always there to greet you with a smile. Although her English is broken, she try's very hard to communicate with you and does a very good job. And her breakfast, oh my!!!! We never ate until dinner we were so stuffed. She makes something different for each day and it is all delicious! The rooms were good size and the beds comfortable. The bathroom good sized and had a hair dryer. They do have wifi however it did not work in our room. We had to go out in the hall if we needed it, which was not a problem for us. After we checked out we had a problem with our bank card, so back to vecchio asilo we went for assistance. Stefania even though was tending to other guests immediately got on the phone and tried to assist us. We arrived with hello and left with hugs and kisses with a promise to return. It is the people that make this place a 5 star in my book!
