Asolo is a quite popular destination for tourists and that is why to book an hotel can be a bit hard. The museums, the ancient buildings and archeological finds are important attractions for travellers. But also the events can attract many people during the year. Then the place is quite close to Treviso and Venice, two marvellous Italian towns. This means that sometimes it can be fully booked. I want to share my experience, made twice in Asolo. I went there for some meetings and I wanted a good accomodation, so I started to search among the offers.
The rates depends of course on the period. Because during some particular events and during spring and summer generally the prices are higher. In Asolo to book an hotel means to choose among different types of accomodations, included B&B, apartments and farms. What to do? Before to go into the topic I think it is necessary to explain why this beautiful village is the perfect location for an holiday.
Asolo and the region
The area is really full of history, monuments and museums where to discover the region. Asolo it is close to the main cities and towns of Veneto. The place is far few kilometres from the most poplular mountains and it is full of amazing landscapes all around. Not only history, but also art, architecture and nature are the ingredients of the village and the surroundings. You can find a quiet place to walk in the nature. The village offers you the accomodation you are searching for with the typical kindness dedicated to the tourists.
If you want to visit Venice you can easily go there. You only need half an hour by car. It is possible to use buses and trains to move, but I suggest to do it by car, it is faster. You are free to transfer when you want and you need less time than public transport. To sleep in Asolo costs less than Venice and it is definitely more quiet. These are the reasons why you can consider to stay in the vilage and to book an hotel there.
How to book an hotel
Asolo offer, as tourism destination, a good variety of accomodations. There are five stars hotels to guest houses. I have been again in the same hotel, but how did I choose it? Well, I was searching for a comfortable room, close to the main square and with a good price. I like luxury, so this influence my evaluation. When you travel for work reasons you want to sleep well and to receive the proper attentions. That is why I check always luxury structures. My second criteria was related to the position. Infact to sleep not far from Piazza Garibaldi it is a great opportunity to go to all the attractions by foot.
As I already mentioned the rates are lower than Venice, plus I add the quiet, almost impossible to be found in the city. I noticed that a five stars hotel can be quite cheap compared to other places in Veneto, but it offers a great experience. Also I wanted a structure with a restaurant, because without a plan to out, when you are tired in the evening you can eat few steps far from the room. I tried to check also other solutions, but most of them were not in the best position, except Hotel Duse, a three stars and historical structure. I decided to book an hotel called Albergo al Sole.
Albergo al Sole
The five stars hotel is not the only one in Asolo, but it is 300 metres far from the main square. It offers a great view and it combines tradition and modernity. An old and historical building shows the tradition, also in the roome settings. Meanwhile some furniture element and an impeccable service are give a good experience. According to modern high standards. I already wrote in past about this accomodation, but I want to add something more after my second visit.
The staff is friendly, they welcome the guest as people do in private houses. You really feel at home, maybe also because the structure is quite small. The rooms are spacious, with a stylish setting that reminds the traditions of the past. But the equipment is modern and complete. You are in the history with all the contemporary comforts. They also have a shop inside with exclusive products, as food and home design objects. A shuttle service is available for guests. I suggest you to use the car also to explore the area. In case they provide you the permission to enter in the traffic limited streets to reach the hotel and the car parking. Guests can also benefit of the luxury bikes of the hotel.
I took these pictures in September 2016.
Food is important in Italy and Asolo has great products. To taste the local cuisine you have to enjoy the restaurant La Terrazza. It is inside the Albergo al Sole. When you book an hotel, especially this one, you have the chance to find special offers including other services. I suggest you to consider the dinner at La Terrazza. Recipes from Veneto and Mediterranean dishes are proposed according to the availability of seasonal ingredients. You can choose between fish and meat, both of them cooked with some innovation by the chef. In summer it is possible to use the terrace with a superb view on the village. They serve there also the breakfast.
The Emporio of the hotel has a very good oil, made few kilometres out of Asolo. When you book an hotel in the village and you want to taste the local products Albergo al Sole can help you. I have one more tip for you about the local food. If you like to bring home some products or just to taste something while you are doing your tour, buy it from the shop. In Via Browning, few hundred metres from Piazza Garibaldi, there is Gastronomia Sgarbossa. A big shop with local products as the oil, wines, cheese and salami. There is a huge variety and it is an opportunity to taste the specialties. Book an hotel in Asolo will be your delicious idea.
