3- Star hotels in Asti

Hotel Lis
Hotel Lis is a family-owned hotel across the street from a park between Piazza Campo Del Palio and Piazza Vittorio Alfieri–if you want a view of the greenery rather than the car-parking courtyard, ask for a room on the street side. The Lis is within easy walking distance of Asti’s historic attractions. In Euro-modern style, its rooms have comfortable beds and are clean almost to a fault (is it really necessary to have every towel individually wrapped in plastic?).  The service here is exemplary, with very kind and genial hosts, and breakfast is generous–a full buffet of fruit, yogurt, pastries, ham, cheeses, and eggs boiled as you prefer them.

Rotarius B&B
Few  places in the world allow you to experience life in a medieval tower with modern facilities. One of the few, or maybe the only, is Rotarius B&B, offering a single, beautifully furnished suite (many stairs here, however).
 

 

Hotel Cavour
For comparatively inexpensive, simple lodgings, Hotel Cavour  is a good choice. It’s across the street from the railway station and near buses, but it’s safe, well-kept, and suprisingly quiet. Parking is available, breakfast is included, and small pets are allowed.

Casa Prosit , in the medieval town center, offers two recently refurbished apartments, “Charlie” and “Noiret.” They have separate entrances and each has two levels, with sleeping areas upstairs. They’re quiet, spacious, and clean.

The owners live next door and are happy to answer questions and be generally helpful.
