This place really needs renovating. It is a tired and rundown hotel, with poorly serviced rooms, old furniture that needs replacing and awful bathrooms. There is a certain "slack-ness" with the staff who can't be bothered about much except making sure you pay your bill, and will over charge you if they can. The breakfast was also disappointing and wasn't... More

Good hotel with nice rooms. I was in the quadruple family room and it is perfect althought there is only one bathroom for all these beds. Reception is glad to help you and the hotel is closely located to all historical sites in Assisi. They have a parking but it is 10 euros per day.

Pictures online are deceiving. Fontebella is much more beautiful. Rooms nice, bed and linens comfy, and views were outstanding. Didn't much care for the hike up the hill. Transit bus system not so good. Bring inhalers if you have trouble breathing. Room temperature was very comfortable. Best of all breakfast!!! Fabulous cakes made with cherries and apples! Meat, rolls, eggs,... More

The customer service was fantastic! Arrived very tired at this hotel and Andrea (the front desk person) welcomed us and showed us 3 rooms to chose from. He went above and beyond to accommodate us. Very conveniently located(near St. Francis basilica) breakfast is excellent, even the breakfast staff accommodated us when we arrived late. We were very happy with this... More

A lovely hotel with very friendly staff within a short walk of the Basilica of St. Francis. We were upgraded to a room with an incredible view of the valley. Convenient parking right across the street. A cozy bar & an elegant dining room where we enjoyed a romantic dinner. Very nice breakfast selection.

My wife and I found Hotel Fontebella quite by mistake when the GPS took us to Assisi instead of the FONTANABELLA in Perugia. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay and enjoy this walled city. Martin was the perfect gentleman, also our waiter for the best meal and wine. Our room overlooked the western wall and the sunset... More

We stayed at the Fontebella in Assisi in early August, for only 1 night. We were 2 Cuban families from Miami traveling by car in Italy, as soon as we arrived they made us feel welcome! There was this guy that is from Peru, we forgot your name sorry!! He was great, we loved chatting with him. We got there... More

This hotel is very well located. However, the rooms are small. The shower was about 18 inches by 18 inches and the folding door was broken. The bedspreads were dirty. The reception staff was unfriendly and we were treated like we were a nuisance to them. We encountered this attitude almost in every hotel in Italy.

Date of travel June 2011! I remember when I stayed there! It was my first trip internationally and I ended up in this well-located, family friendly hotel.
