Hotel Umbra is awesome! The rooms are huge with great views from the balcony! It is close to everything, as it is right in the Piazza Commune, which is a 5min walk to the Church of Saint Chiara and 5min walk to Basilica of San Francesco. Staff is so helpful and friendly, breakfast is delicious, with a great variety of... More

We only had one night in Assisi, and that is simply not enough. Next time I am blessed to go there, I will most definitely stay here again. Rooms were lovely, clean-- and everything was just as I had envisioned Italy, in Assisi and this hotel. The breakfast they served our large group had a wide variety of foods--the only... More

We were only in Assisi one night and stayed at Hotel Umbra based on Rick Steves' recommendation. It is a charming hotel and our room was lovely. The hotel is right off the main Piazza Commune and we were warmly welcomed by every staff member. The room was spacious and both the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. There was... More

Just literally steps away from the town square and easy access to everything in Assisi. Restaurants just across the plaza and next door. Bakeries within arms' length. We arrived just days before the Pope's visit last October and the power throughout the town center was off while they spruced up for the big day but the staff welcomed our Rick... More

Have stayed here on three separate occasions, single room. One stay was a last minute reservation when trip plans changed & they were most accommodating. Rooms are clean, staff is eager to please, location - just off the main square and steps from the official tourist office. They have a small restaurant featuring local cuisine plus bar. Good quality for... More

Very large room with beautiful 200 degree view from the balcony and two oversized windows. Large wingback chairs for enjoying wine and view in air conditioning! When you imagine a classic chic European hotel built into a city wall, this is it. (And yes, classic charm comes with classic fixtures). Very accomodating, helpful staff. With our reservation confirmation, they emailed... More

My wife and I stayed at this quaint Assisi hotel for four nites in October 2013. It was the second time in the last few years that we have stayed here. In fact, we had the very same room on the first floor overlooking a nice walled in courtyard. And most interesting, the same three legged marmalade cat as we... More

We booked Hotel Umbra based on a NY times article expounding on it's quaintness and great service. We were not disappointed. Marco at the front desk was at our service from the moment he greeted us, helping with our luggage and even fetching us from the town square when we could not find the hotel with the car ( requires...

I stayed at the Umbra Hotel, Assisi for 2 nights in October and thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The hotel is centrally located just off the main piazza. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I stayed in the main hotel and my friends stayed in the annexe apartment about 20 metres... More

Umbra hotel is right in the center of town and the family that runs it is very nice. Breakfast was good and the rooms were adequate. Parking is a real hike but hey walking is good for you..Just know the municipal parking has some strange hours for different entrances so the walk can be even longer - definately do not... More
