This is my second time in this hotel. It is super well located, near everything in the city center, 5 min walk away the monastery, near a parking place. The breakfast is not good enough, but it is aceptable and American type.

Excellent location and friendly staff, but the pictures of the hotel are slightly misleading. the rooms are very small, need refurbishment, breakfast is miserable with little choices, restaurant has spectacular view indeed, but the food was not very tasty. Englsih si Ok, WiFi is OK as well, private parking helps a lot and it is not expensive

Stayed in low season in one of the quintuple rooms. The hotel is in a nice location in the centre of the town and our room had amazing views over the valley. The room itself was very dated, especially the bathroom, but having said this it still represented good value for money. Breakfast was solid and the staff were helpful....

We have stayed here during the low season so there are only a handful of people staying here. This meant that breakfast has limited options to reduce the food waste but there is still plenty to chose from! If you want something different, simply ask and they will cook a meal for you. Also, due to the lack of people...

Wonderful location and if you can get a room at the back of the building overlooking the valley. If travelling by train get the bus to the bust station and a cab to the hotel , beware unlicensed cabs at the rail station. The staff are wonderfully helpful as are the staff in the restaurant where the meals are excellent.If...

This hotel is perfectly located between St. Francis Basilica and St. Clare's. The staff are the nicest people you will ever meet as are most of the people in Assisi! The staff learned the names of several people in our group and were very caring! Martin who was a waiter as well as worked the front desk was a favorite...

Be sure to get a room on the correct side of the hotel to get the view. The hotel was very warm and comfortable - and roomy, especially by European standards. We had 1 snag and that was the elevator was out of service for a couple of hours but but that couldn't be helped. We did eat dinner one...

The Fontebella Hotel was a true delight. Aside from having to climb heart attack hill to get to the property, this is one of the most charming hotels in Assisi. My room was in a little annex adjacent to the restaurant. I am sure this annex dated to the time of Saint Francis, himself, which just added to the charm....

I have been staying at this hotel for many years, it is a wonderful hotel which is inside the city walls with a wonderful view of the valley. The service is friendly, efficient, and always with a warm greeting! Their adjoining restaurant offers excellent food & wine with a panoramic view of the valley. Make sure you ask for a...

Really nice hotel - as with most of Assisi hotels limited parking is the only draw back. Rooms were slightly smaller than normal but again suspect most hotels are like this is a town built on a hill. The view more than made up for this. Breakfast was nice and solid nothing amazing but a good start to the day....
