We loved the location near to the Churches of St. Francis and Chiasa Chiara (St. Clare), Martin and the friendly and helpful staff, the excellent breakfasts, the fabulous views from our lovely room and graciously appointed bathroom, and the enchanting 'secret' garden! It was charming to awake to the ringing of the Church bells. We had a delicious dinner at... More

The staff is friendly and patient. I have read the reviews regarding how tired the rooms are. Frankly, I was not looking forward to staying at the hotel (I did not book the trip). Once there, I was okay with our rooms. The bathrooms are tiny and the showers can be a challenge for anyone above medium height depending on... More

Best thing about our stay was the location and view from the room. Nicely located for visiting Assisi. Everything else was OK, not great. OK room, OK breakfast. We were only there one night, so no big deal.

Perfectly situated for visiting the Basilicas and other sites in Assisi, the Hotel Fontebella is essentially a three-star establishment in need of modernisation. Adequate for a short stay but would be depressing for any longer. Insist on a room with a valley view - I had a small, dark room with no outlook. Although the public rooms and the restaurant...

We had a nice large room and bathroom with a magnificent Valley view. Staff (especially Martin who organised for a taxi to meet our bus from Siena to take us up the hill from Santa Maria deli Angeli to Assisi) were very friendly and helpful. Having the shower over a deep bath was a problem for us.

Beautiful views of the valley. Our triple room was a bit dated but clean and comfortable. The hotel sits on a hillside with the lobby entrance on the third floor facing Via Fontebella. Easy walk to Basilica of San Francesco, close to Piazza del Comune and Santa Chiara up the hill, great shopping and places to eat. Friendly and helpful... More

Been here twice, the service is great. The rooms are clean and lovely. This year we were able to try their restaurant, the view was incredible, and the food was great. I recommend it highly. Parking is available for a charge, but worth it.

The hotel is in the old part of the city of narrow, curving roads on a steep hill. We arrived late in the evening and the gentleman at the desk was friendly and helpful. Our room was nice, queen sized bed, a chaise, a chair and a desk. The bathroom was good sized and had a whirlpool tub, which I... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times. First, as a single traveler. Later when bringing parents to Italy. And now traveling with my wife and young children. I have found it to be a very good hotel on all three occasions. First of all, it's quiet. No hustle, no bustle, no noise. The staff are very pleasant. The restaurant... More

While driving through Italy this week we made a stop at this hotel. We were a family of four. The hotel is located very close to all the attractions, it is in the middle of the medieval city. Our room had a loft with a twin bed and a queen bed, there was also a queen bed on the main... More
