It seems that in Assisi, everything is on a hill and this hotel is certainly no exception! It is located very centrally, just off of the Piazza del Comune. The catch is that it is up a number of steps! However, the climb is well worthwhile. The hotel is like a home away from home. The staff, especially Jenny, were... More

Not as advertised. We arrived mid day to a very hot, stuffy, dimly lit room. The aircon was at full blast but the room would not cool below 29c, two light bulbs were not working, and the room was tired and in poor upkeep. We asked the hotel manager to help but all he could do was change one light... More

Locating the hotel was a bit tough but after finding it, we appreciated the central location of the property. There were stairs leading the hotel but it was not that bad from the reviews I've read. Don't skip breakfast or fail to stop by the terrace on the top floor as it offers stunning views. There was not air-conditioning but... More

Had a lovely dinner at La Fortezza after an American friend who had lived in Assisi recommended it. Nice fresh ingredients in a vegetable soup and good lamb cutlets and a guinea hen in pastry. Certainly will try to go back.

After finally finding the spot with a fair amount of trouble due to my husbands gps we were relieved to find this little gem in the middle of the city. It has great access to the free parking up by the castle. We were close to everything. Nice view from the terrace where they serve tea and cake from 3-6... More

The Hotel La Fortezza has the perfect location for touring Assisi. We stayed for two nights in March. The hotel is centuries old, quaint and up a long flight of stone steps that will get you ready for the ups/down/hill climbing of the wonderful town of Assisi. The location is perfect---adjacent to the main square and right in the heart... More

The Hotel La Fortezza is situated in the upper part of Assisi. If arriving by train just outside the rail station there is a bus stop where you can catch the bus ( C ) which runs approx every 30 minutes departing at 15 and 45 past the hour, the fare is 2 Euro but cheaper if you buy your... More

Assisi was the highlight of our Italy trip, and La Fortezza helped make it so! The host Jenny is very helpful, promptly answered my emails, and served a great breakfast on a terrace with an Umbrian mountain view that alone is worthy of a five-star rating. The hotel is close to the main Piazza del Comune but very quiet at... More

I stayed there for 2 nights in August and it really impressed me! Jenny, the hotel director, is really kind and always ready to help in any way! For instance, when we arrived, she came personally where we parked the car (the hotel is in the historical centre where cars cannot park) and helped us with our luggages!! The room... More

I've stayed here numerous times over recent years and will always continue to return. The accommodation and location right in the heart of the historic centre of Assisi would be hard to beat. La Fortezza represent real value for money and should certainly be considered seriously if your planning a visit to Assisi. The Manager of the property Jenny who... More
