The hotel called a driver to pick us (my husband and me) up at the train station in Orvieto. Her name was Claudia, (I believe) and she was extremely kind and helpful. We had a late dinner at the hotel restaurant which was divine!
The hotel is full of history, and we loved the story of how it came to be. It could use some upgrades, but we were so happy to be there, it's hard to split hairs. I do remember the WiFi at the hotel being a problem, and I took my iPad into town and used it there. Our room was nothing special, but was comfortable. The porter brought us an afternoon snack of olives, cheeses, nuts and wine as we relaxed in the 12th century courtyard.
Back to the restaurant. We stayed at La Badia 2 nights and ate at the restaurant both nights. It is expensive, but we expected that, and enjoyed every bite. The recommended wine was superb, and was corked and saved for us to finish the second night.
I would recommend the hotel for the experience. If you don't expect all the conveniences from home, you'll enjoy the experience. The restaurant is a must-do; the breakfast buffet was okay.
