I should begin by saying that my experience at the San Rufino wasn't horrible, it's just that I found two rather essential problems which I feel I ought to alert people to.
The first is location. Although this may sound counter-intuitive, staying "right next" to the main square or cathedral in an Italian hilltop town is not necessarily a good thing. In the case of Assisi, this means having to drag your bags from the bus stop at the main gates (opposite San Francis Basilica), which is where the bus from the Railway station will drop you... or, if you are patient enough, wait for a second bus to take you up to centre. Of course this wouldn't be a problem if you can afford a taxi every time, but my guess is that, if you are considering the San Rufino, you cannot afford a taxi ride every time!
The second flaw is that the hotel is right next to a noisy bar. The night I stayed at the Hotel (a Saturday) there was live music until midnight, which didn't wholly ruin my stay, but it wasn't exactly the peacefulness and quiet I was expecting in Assisi.
