“Great small hotel in Assisi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2014 via mobile

Our family (2 adults and 3 children 10 and under) had a most enjoyable stay at Hotel Alexander. We shared a basic but comfortable room. Good breakfast and very centrally located in quiet location. Would happily return.

Assisi is a great little town to come and spend a night in and this hotel is a great place to do it. Hotel Alexander is a charming little hotel with just a handful of rooms. It is set back from a main piazza right next to a small church. The rooms are large by European standards, are very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was modern and quite large and well maintained. Our stay included breakfast which was a typical European breakfast of mixed pastries, cereal, and meat platter with coffee or tea. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Be sure to ask for a recommendations for dinner. We had an amazing dinner because of their recommendation. Because the streets can be a little confusing in Assisi, be sure to get directions from the hotel and pick up a map at the local train station tobacci if you're arriving by train. This hotel is very close to all the main sites in the city so you shouldn't have to worry about distances. What we did notice is most of the tourists didn't bother with the castle that is above the city. We were the only people in the whole castle when we visited. Be sure to check it out because it has the best views of the city and the surrounding area. This hotel also has a great roof top deck with views of the surrounding area.

We booked a quadruple room in Hotel Alexander Assisi for one night in August 2014. The room is not that spacious but clean. Receptionist is helpful and with fluent English. Wifi connection is good. The breakfast is good and serves at the rooftop terrace with sweet pastries, croissants, hams, cheese, yogurt, bread, juice, biscuits, juice and coffee, etc. The view from the rooftop terrace is amazing and you can view across the historic centre. Hotel Alexander is just right at the centre, next to the church of Chiesa Nuova which was the original home of St. Francis and also where his father imprisoned him. Everything is just within walking distance. Assisi is a middle-age city and you must spend at least two days there. Make sure that you get the timetable of Linea C bus which runs every 30 mins to/from the Assisi train station. Bus tickets can be brought from the café/ bar/tabacci.

This was a wonderful break in our journey from venice to rome by car. The hotel is beautifully situated off the main road in a quiet little square opposite the church where st.francis grew up.
It's charming character of being a smaller hotel was a delight. The rooms were very clean, quiet and comfortable and the staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
From here you can walk anywhere in Assisi and enjoy its splendour at night when all the tourists have gone home.
The rooftop terrace and breakfast with its stunning views of the Umbrian countryside is truly breathtaking and relaxing.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to other travellers.
There is no car parking facility here but if you advise the hotel in advance they will direct you to a very secure public car park about 5-10 minutes walk away. So we dropped our bags, children and parents and then went to park the car.
The only thing that I would like to see in the rooms is a tea/coffee making facilities which I know is a rarity in italy but would be a nice touch.
The hotel does have a small bar where you can purchase hot/cold drinks.
customers should be aware that there is no lift but friendly help is available for bags if you ask.

Room Tip: If you have limited mobility then ask for room downstairs next to reception.

We made the decision to stay at the Hotel Alexander on the recommendation of our friend, owner of Bibenda in Assisi. I had to change our dates a couple of times due to work commitments but hotel Director, Simone, handled that with great charm and patience. 'Charm' is a word I use a lot when describing the hotel for it is just that. Simone is a lovely man, always willing to do everything he can to make us happy. Our room (Raffaella) on the top floor was enormous with a spotless bathroom and THE most wonderful views of the church dome and beyond to the valley. The buffet breakfast is great, especially when taken on the roof terrace. I couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough. It's just great and brilliant value for money. We fully intend to visit again next year.

This was our fourth time staying at Hotel Alexander, this time for two and a half weeks, and we enjoyed it as always. The perfect place to stay in Assisi!
It’s a small hotel with a really good atmosphere. It’s located just by the main square and it’s close to all the sights. We have now stayed in four different rooms in this hotel, and they have all been spacious, well equipped and modern furnished. It has air conditioning and free wifi. Even though the location is so central, it’s still quiet in the nights which has been important for me since I have had my little boy with me on these trips.
This is the first time we have been in Assisi in the summer, and this time, on the mornings with nice weather, we got served breakfast on the roof terrace. It was a wonderful way to start the day! The breakfast is good, and the view from the roof terrace is so beautiful!!
The people working at this hotel are just lovely. Very service minded and helpful, and they always makes us feel at home. Thank you Alina, Bozena and Simone! :) We are already looking forward to our next trip to Assisi and our second home!
Highly recomended!
