Hotel Badia di Pomaio
Ranked #9 of 29 Hotels in Arezzo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2012

An amazing converted monastery, circa 1620, with breathtaking views of Arezzo and the mountains. The building and grounds are beautiful, our room clean and comfortable with two large windows with stunning views. The staff are charming and helpful: the lovely Valentina, Fiore and her Mom, and crazy funny Giuseppe can not do enough for you. A shuttle into town and back was a nice surprise, visit Arezzo for the day or take the train into Florence from there and not have to worry about driving or parking Its a perfect location to visit all the little towns nearby; don't miss Cortona, just a short drive away with charming shops and restaurants and breathtaking views, and be sure to visit the winery down the road. The drive up the mountain is well worth it, though not for the fainthearted or unskilled drivers. Staff are happy to help you with your luggage and you can also drive right up to the door to load or unload. Dining is superb, casual yet elegant. Simply wonderful, away from the hustle & bustle yet convenient for visiting all the charming places nearby. Bravo!

Room Tip: Choose a Superior Room for the breathtaking view.

The steep climb up the Tuscan hills on the west side of Arezzo more than suggested there would be astonishing views of the City. Arriving to see the sunset was fortunate and the hotel, a converted monastery, looked at its finest while sitting proudly at such a height.
The staff were very helpful, welcoming and engaging. I stayed in Viola, room 1, where the only let down was the small window / no view. Otherwise very clean, spacious and comfortable. I ate in the restaurant, set in the exposed-brickwork cellar, where the service was just as first class as the food & wine. Local produce cooked to a very high standard with a reasonable price tag (30-40 euros per head for 3 course inc wine).
Recommend it to couples of all ages, perhaps not families. After 10 days in Tuscany this is the only hotel I’m talking about.

Room Tip: I had room number one, AKA Viola. Good size for two people, very comfortable & clean. No views.

Stayed a single night in this beautiful hotel as a stop on the road.
The staff is very kind and helpful, the rooms are good standard, the view beautiful. It is located on the hill with a very nice view down towards Arezzo.
The restaurant is great, serving local specialities in the dining room housed in the wine cellar. Good value for money, I will definitely return to this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights bringing my mother in law. The location is stunning and we found it easily with satnav. The staff are the most helpful I have ever come across, simply nothing is too much trouble, from ordering flowers to calling old friends in Arezzo for us, printing maps etc. We would definitely go back, but might book a superior room which I suspect are not quite so dark being at the front with bigger windows. The courtyard dining room is delightful, dinner is excellent and beautifully served. A real gem of a hotel.

Although we arrived by train the Hotel was happy to provide a free shuttle service from the station which was approx 20mins away. On arriving at the hotel we were taken back by the breath taking views and tranquil atmosphere. It was nice meeting Valentina she was very friendly and helpful. Rooms had traditional features as well as being modernly equipped. In the evening the hotel turned into what should be a michelin starred restaurant which was also open to the public. Both the food and service during our evening meals was incredible and definitely unexpected. They had serving wine down to an art with an extensive cellar full of wine we almost felt too unexperienced to drink. I would advise anyone staying for 3 or more days to rent a car as at sometimes we found we were trapped in paradise in a land where there were no prices with everything being charged to our room. Despite our lack of car Valentina was happy to drive us into Arezzo centre one afternoon and we were collected later that evening all free of charge. Definitely a place to visit!!! Good luck with your future Valentina hope you get to the UK soon. Al
