If you are looking for the perfect location, this is the place. It is literally right in the center of town. It's next to the main square with all of the good restaurants. Somehow we got upgraded to the top floor room and it was seriously incredible. We were in italy for a month, and this was hands down the best room we stayed in. It was huge with beautiful windows overlooking the entire valley.
For those of you worried about the infamous LTZ in the hill towns of Assisi, fear not. I was paranoid as ever about getting a huge ticket by driving into town. The typical signs are there saying not to drive in. There are even cameras. We drove around forever trying to figure out how to get in, and then just went for it. The guy at the front desk told me that they have not implemented this yet in Assisi, and the signs/cameras are there to deter people from driving in. Sometimes the police sit there and ask why you are driving in. Make sure you have your hotel confirmation. So don't sweat it and drive right in. The hotel will give you directions and a discount voucher to park outside the city.
TIP: Call the hotel in advance if you are driving. There are these pillars in the street that prevent you from driving to the hotel front. The hotel staff must come out and put these down or you will just be stuck in the middle of the road. The website doesn't say anything about this, so dont' forget or you will be in an akward situation.
