Hotel La Vecchia Cartiera
Reviewed 13 July 2010

We were very pleased with this quiet little hotel. The owner was very helpful with recommendations for dining and parking. It has a very pleasant breakfast room with more than the usual offerings. Our room was comfortable and clean with windows opening to the quiet street just steps away from the town’s main square. Parking was on the street in the neighborhood with meters or for fee parking garage. The hotel was a little difficult to find because the internet site we used listed the address as 579 Via Oberdan when in fact was 5/7/9 Via Oberdan which confused our GPS.

Stayed: July 2010, travelled as a couple

I moved to this hotel after spending a couple of hours at the Relais Della Rovere and being unhappy there. (I have written a separate review of the Relais Della Rovere.) This hotel is central, charming, warm and welcoming. It is family owned and operated, and a family member was always around during my stay. The owners/management knew that internet connectivity was important to me. When the hotel's internet provider continued to experience problems, one of the young managers allowed me to use her private account, going well above and beyond what one expects. (At the Relais Della Rovere, no one was even aware that there was a problem with the internet provider to hotels in the area; simply told me that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and that I should keep trying.) The restaurant at Hotel La Vecchia Cartiera was excellent and well-priced. I would select this hotel again. It is a far superior choice to Relais Della Rovere.

I spent three nights at this well-managed hotel in the lower part of Colle Val d'Elsa while attending meetings in Oct.. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room with a king size bed (two individual beds put together, actually) was clean and adequate. Breakfast was very complete and well-presented. The hotel is also very close to the bus stop for traveling to and from Siena or Florence. I would happily stay here again.

A very well managed hotel with extremely helpful staff. Located in the centre of this small non-tourist town with plenty of attractive old hill-top towns in easy driving distance

My husband and I just returned from 10 days in Italy. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor we chose this hotel. We spent 4 nights at Hotel La Vecchia Cartiera and it was our favorite part of the trip. Colle di val d'Elsa is the perfect spot from which to tour the Tuscany region. The town itself is quaint and very picturesque and really gives you a feel for the area. The hotel is located in the new town very close to a piazza (square). The rooms were not fancy but were very clean, the air conditioning worked very well and the breakfast was the best we had during our trip (we stayed in both Florence and Rome as well). The proprietor spoke very good English and German and he was most helpful when answering our many questions. The hotel was also close to a grocery store (The Coop) and many great restaurants. Everything was within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.
