Vicenza: Agriturismo: San Michele

Nice hotel

This hotel is on the south side of Vicenza. I stayed there with 2 friends for one night in October.

It is an old 17th century villa and has been very nicely updated. Rooms have original beams, cottage windows and tile floors. Showers are travertine, and large ... but open, so careful with the water spraying everywhere. Bathrobes and soft towels provided. Beds firm but comfortable, king that can be split into 2 twin. Satellite TV in the room.

Restuarant onsite, which was good, and not expensive: 15 euros per person for glass of wine, appetizer, first course and bottled water.

I booked a suite and regular room, but when we arrived, the regular room smelled like stale smoke ... I asked for a different room and was given one. This room was larger and smelled like an air freshner working overtime. I unplugged the air freshner and opened the windows while we went to dinner and it was fine when I got back. The hotel informed me during dinner that I would have to pay 20 extra euros for changing rooms as the new room was larger.

We had to leave at 7:30 and breakfast was not served until 9:00, no exceptions. However, they did give us a few apples and some melba toast to take to our rooms after dinner. Each room had a hot water boiler and tea/coffee packets.

This was a nice place. The facilities were very nice and comfortable and the price was not unreasonable. I am neutral on it simply because the staff was not accommodating. There were lots of shrugs and "no, not possible" from them. So while I would not recommend it, I would not warn anyone away from it either. Perhaps we got them on a bad night, or perhaps I was unreasonable in wanting to change rooms and eat some cereal/croissant before breakfast time.

But do visit the website, as the pictures are very accurate and they were very quick to respond to my email request for reservations.
