Reviewed August 7, 2013

The hotel is very close to all the sites in the heart of Assisi. Very clean and run by nice people. There is also a marvelous resturant that is part of the hotel, good local wine- cheap. The lunch is a good value, very filling pasta as a course. The bruchetta s excellent and the pesto was perfect. This hotel is in Italy so do not expect rushed service, sit down, stop, and take time to enjoy life.

Found this hotel to be more comfortable than I was expecting. You can't beat the location. It's right in the middle of everything in Assisi and everyone who works at the restaurant (they run the hotel too) are very nice and helpful. Rooms were clean and decently appointed too. Good nights rest and would recommend for the location alone.

We were literally greeted with free cookies and sent off with free pizza!

Small town Italy is really nice, Assisi is really great, and the Hotel Grotta Antica folks were quite hospitable.

I recommend them.

What a delightful reception we had upon arriving at Grotta Antica Hotel! The hotel staff is engaged and hospitable, immediately making us feel more like long awaited guests than costumers. The hotel is conveniently, centrally located but tucked down a side street so it feels quiet and private and the only sound that greets you upon waking is the sweet chirping of birds outside the window.

We highly recommend trying the restaurant downstairs during your stay. The atmospher is pleasantly rustic and though the menu is not expansive the food is absolutely delicious. Besides it is a golden opportunity to spend more time with the hotel staff!

Staff was enthusiastic and friendly. We were sad we didnt have the chance to try their resaturant. Located in a little walking street just off the main Assisi square. Clean, comfortable, spacious room. We had a small desk and a full sized white couch next to the bed. A shower in a real tub (for a change) so the whole bathroom doesnt get wet when you shower. We came with a rental car and parking is difficult in Assisi but the hotel has a great deal for guests with the nearby city parkade so we only paid 8 euros a day! cheapest parking we had our whole trip
We were lead to an annex of the hotel and dont remember having been made aware of that in our booking. but it was just as nice and only a few steps away so it wasnt a big deal. Also be aware that the annex had no elevator. All in all, we were quite happy and comfortable there. Great value for money.

Tucked away in a tiny cobbled back lane, this hotel is certainly central inside the old city of Assisi. No lift so be prepared to carry luggage up quiet a few stairs. We were in the top room and had a bit of a climb. Room 7 was big but the bathroom tiny. Sad to say the beds were not great. We were two couples and had one double and two singles. The springs very noisy and squeaked every time someone made the slightest move. The double sank into the middle and one of the singles sloped sideways. The room was clean and had a skylight plus a window overlooking the little lane. The staff do not speak English and our command of Italian not great but we got by. Everyone was very helpful. Have dinner in their restaurant. The food was great and very reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed it. No parking here but there are car parking garages dotted about. We paid to park our car. Not cheap but it was secure and undercover. Cost was 12 euro for 24 hours

My sister and I booked in to Grotta Antica in the beginning of May. We found ourselves in the midst of Calendimaggio. The traditional annual spring festival. Grottta Antics is very close to the centre of town where it all takes place. Our room was on the ground floor and was small but spotless. It was extremely convenient to the piazza del commune but very quiet. Will return.
