“OUTSTANDING ambiance and setting at the foot of Orvieto!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

We loved being in this hotel; it is a bit magical. The ambiance and the setting (looking across the valley toward the hilltown of Orvieto, were breath-taking. Yes, the standard and comfort rooms are small and rather plain, though entirely comfortable with good baths. The breakfast is good, the WiFi is effective, the parking is good, and the restaurant is quite excellent. We enjoyed two dinners on site and each was really delicious, including some lovely local white wines that we sampled. On April 1, the hotel had just re-opened from the winter (we arrive on the 2nd), so things were still in progress, though that did not impede our enjoyment at all, not for one second! The desk staff are helpful, and though one does not have the best English, she does try to help. The other staff are all cordial and helpful. The buildings date from the 11th or 12th century and are totally imposing; a walk around the grounds is a history lesson. I can imagine in the summer when the pool is open, and you've spent a day wandering around Orvieto, the pool would be divine! Anyway, try this place.....especially if you like something different than a big box, name brand hotel, which we ALWAYS try to avoid!!

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.

Room Tip: Noise was not a problem at this hotel.

Arrived at an amazing Castle that was etched out of the rolling hills of Orvieto. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was good. I mostly enjoyed the mornings with the fresh buffet breakfasts and the wonderful evening dinners in the dinning area. The food was fresh and cooked to your preference. Do try the truffles and my waiter Valerio was amazing. He gave my Mom and I so many great suggestions on what to do in Central Italy... grazie! From Southern California

La Badia was an incredible experience. My wife Susan and I celebrated our wedding there and it was truly a magical place that we fell in love with immediately. The food was incredible. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, working very hard with our wedding planner Federica Nascimben (http://www.italianweddingevent.com/) to make our dream wedding come true. This hotel is located about an Hour from Rome and across from Orvieto, a scenic medieval town situated on a crested hill top. We cannot recommend this venue/hotel/experience enough.

We had an excellent stay at La Badia. It is very close to Orvieto. Wonderful staff, very helpful. The rooms are a bit spartan, but clean and comfortable.The common areas are lovely. The restaurant is a bit expensive, but dinner was worth every penny. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent service, and a delicious meal. We were lucky enough to be there the night fresh porcini mushrooms were delivered! The chef made an incredible risotto. The night clerk gave us a history of the hotel when it was an abbey, and took us on a tour of some of the rooms. Breakfast was delicious and had a good variety of items to choose from. We had afternoon coffee/drinks in the courtyard. (The only drawback was the pool area seems to need an update). We would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: We overlooked the courtyard, which had a wonderful view of Orvieto in the distance.

A spectacular hotel in a beautiful abbey. Great to see how this spectacular building has been restored to a very intimate feeling hotel. The staff was very helpful, rooms are comfortable and the restaurant is great (try the open fire roasts!) We have been back several times and recommend La Badia for Couples or Friends.

A superb location to cycle down from the chaos and thundering hordes of tourists in Florence (us included). My wife and I spend two wonderful nites here in October 2013 bridging Florence and Rome. Close to and very convenient to the little out of the way Umbrian hill town of Orvieto (a gem in itself). Do not fear driving up to Orvieto, parking, and even having a great dinner there as well.

Dinner at La Badia was wonderful. We were in the main room where the open fire spit is located and were able to watch our chef cook the steaks. Italy has wonderful meats (steak, lamb, pork) and the pasta was phenomenal.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms face the neat hill town of Orvieto. If you do not mind the extra stairs, stay in t...
