No hotel could be better located in Assisi than hotel Umbra, on Piazza del Comune, across the Tempio de Minerva, a short walk to the bus stop and among some of the best restaurants in town. For four days my wife and myself enjoyed a big room with a nice view of Assisi medieval roofs, a very good beakfast and above all the allways friendly and helpful treatment from owners and staff. This is certainly one of the places to stay if you want to enjoy the Assisi atmosphere and San Francesco Basilica remarkable works of art.

The hotel is located just off the main piazza near the TI office.
Breakfast is included - but not what we North Americans are used to - not good, not bad, just different.
Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with - spoke excellent English.

Room Tip: Have a parking discount arrangement with most of the parking lots in Assisi.

We stayed at Hotel Umbra for two nights in August. On the positive side, our room had the most fantastic views of the Umbrian Plain and the staff were pleasant. The breakfast, though, was not good. Tasteless coffee and watered down orange juice. On our second morning we went out to a cafe - much more atmosphere and decent coffee! We did feel that the hotel had a rather tired feel to it. Having said that, it was a reasonable price and perfectly situated for exploring the beautiful little city.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 34 (?) Has a wonderful vista of the plain

We were on a tour, so I am not sure of the cost. The rooms were clean, good views, very friendly staff. They were happy to have you as a guest. Breakfast was good. I do think it is a moderately priced hotel, since it was Rick Steves. I would return.

I stayed for a week with a group of friends and can heartily recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area. The welcome was friendly with efficient check and my room was charming with a stunning view across the roofline of Assisi to the valley below. Though the hotel is only a dozen strides or some from the main square it is very quiet and even when there was a concert in the square it couldn't be heard from my room.
Breakfast was fine with different fresh fruits each day, meats, cheeses and bread plus some cooked foods. All I would change is the coffee though it did give me an excuse to sit in square after breakfast and watch the world go by accompanied by an americano - what more can you ask?
Those involved in running this hotel perfectly balanced friendliness with efficiency and I look forward to going back next year.

Hotel Umbra is directly off the main square in Assisi in which there are endless cafes, shops and sights. In spite of this the hotel is very quiet and has a peaceful garden/terrace in which to sit and read or eat or watch the view of the valley.
The rooms are large by the standards of ancient buildings and are reasonable well equipped.
The real selling point though is that the management and staff are extremely helpful and charming. They will do pretty much anything to make your stay comfortable.
I highly recommend this hotel. I stayed for a week.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the valley.

We were very happy with our stay at Hotel Umbra. The hotel is in an old building, just off the main square. We had a very large room with beautiful antique furniture, and a step out balcony that overlooked the valley. The breakfast was served in a lovely room, and offered a nice selection of meat, cheese, yogurt, cereal, fruit and pastries. Assisi fills up with many visitors during the day, but then is very serene in the evening when it is just the residents and people who are staying overnight.

Room Tip: Request a view of the valley
