Fontebella is a lovely hotel, with magnificent views of the valley and the mountains. Assisi is a wonderful place, very clean, great shops and fantastic restaurants. Our room was beautiful with all the amenities we could need. Within walking distance to all the sights. A definite keeper. Would definitely visit again.

Rooms were unique but the views lovely. Dining was the best we experienced in any hotel on our school choir trip. Shower was small but workable. Very much the size of the stall shower at home in the second bathroom. Staff were very helpful and the overall experience in Assisi was fantastic!

This boutique hotel has a lovely view and a very nice dining room. The rooms were better than average, and the bathroom was well appointed. I did notice a slight musky odor. Ask for a room with a view...

Fantastic position right in the centre of the old city. Friendly staff. However, the rooms were hit and miss on size - most in our party had a good room, but some of the bathrooms were very difficult to navigate (sit on the loo for instance wedged against the wall). Some had rooms which could have been cleaner. The food... More

The Fontebella is located just up the hill from the upper gate at the St Francis Basilica. It is a convenient location as most attractions are up the hill from the hotel, which means that you are coming down the hill to your hotel after a long day of sightseeing (read hill climbing). The hotel has a generous lobby for... More

Thankfully only had to stay in this hotel for two nights! This hotel is the Italien equivalent of Fawlty Towers. Rooms were musty, dusty and hadn't been cleaned in a while. I suffer from asthma and did not sleep for two nights. The owner was rude, unpleasant and made absolutely no effort to make us feel welcome. The hotel is... More

I must say from the moment we stepped in the door and met Martin I knew we had made the right choice. Parking is available in front of the hotel which is amazing in this town. The location is very central to all attractions and the view from our rooms was spectacular. The rooms are very comfortable the bathrooms very... More

The hotel is centrally located, between the St Francis basilica, Commune, and St. Chiara basilica. The furnishings and bath were upscale, very comfortable, and the room had a beautiful view of the countryside. The breakfast buffet was fine, with lots of choices: cereal, eggs, pastries, and sliced meat. The fruit juice was from concentrate out of a machine, as was... More

A smallish hotel with lots of charm and character located near the historic Assisi monastery and basilica. Rooms are tiny, especially the toilets. Some clothes hooks behind the toilet door would have been nice to hang our clothes while we were taking our showers. Hotel receptionists were very friendly and helpful in giving directions and tips for exploring the town.... More

Four nights at the Fontebella in Assisi in September. Open windows, comfortable room, wonderful breeze and fabulous view! Fontebella was a great interlude in our recent trip. This beautiful hotel was quiet, comfortable and inviting. Staff was very helpful with everything. Free WiFi in common areas was appreciated for those necessary Skype calls to home. Nice little bar to get... More
