“Has to be the nicest family in all of Italy..................”
Reviewed July 20, 2009

Wow, I cannot say enough about Stefano. The most polite person I think I have ever met. The whole family has such a sweet nature. As a courtesy, we called the hotel from Sienna to let them know what time we would be arriving. They knew we'd be arriving by bus and gave us directions on how to get to the hotel by the shuttle bus. We were in total disbelief when a guy was holding a sign with our name on it when we got off the bus. He drove us to the hotel and insisted on carrying my piece of luggage to the top of the steps. It was an unusually hot day and such a nice touch for him to meet us. He told us that he doesn't always have the time to do that but when he can, he will. Anyway, all the free extras were so nice. An audio guide, bottled water, afternoon tea. Throughout Italy, we've never been treated so kindly. The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are very nice. We especially loved the little rooftop balcony. A great place to sit at night and drink wine and watch the twinkling lights. Tip: Please make sure to eat at the family restaurant across the Piazza. We thought it was the one downstairs from the hotel and it wasn't. The food wasn't impressive except for the lamb appetizer. His family's restaurant is amazing and the people there are so nice.

Room was quaint but sufficient as we were just there for 3 days. Nice being next to a plaza as lots of things within a short distance. Assisi was a great place to visit - lots and up and down walking but wonderful sites. Balcony view for breakfast and late evening drink was awesome.

La Fortezza is in an excellent location in the heart of Assisi. We came by car, but it wasn't a problem to drop our bags off and then park at one of the nearby garages (less than 10 minute walk from hotel). Our room was decent size. As others have mentioned, the shower is a little weird (no curtain or other separation from the rest of the bathroom), but we weren't bothered by it too much. They had a good selection for breakfast and we loved the terrace where we were able to spend some time enjoying the view with a bottle of wine. We also ate dinner at the restaurant one night and it was excellent.

The location of the hotel is great- just off the main piazza- convenient to many shops and restaurants (would HIGHLY recommend MedioEvo and the hotel restaurant- both were excellent). There are many stairs to get to the hotel, but Assisi is a hill town after all. The rooftop deck has amazing views of Umbria and we spent a nice afternoon relaxing there with a picnic and a bottle of wine. Staff was very helpful and overly accomodating. Breakfast was very good (breads, pastries, meat, cheese, etc.) Rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious by European standards. It is not a luxury hotel, but for the price, it can't be beat!

  • Liked — rooftop deck
  • Disliked — beds were noisy, but pretty comfy

We stayed here one night. We arrived in the rain and you cannot believe how happy we were to see Stefano at the bus staion with a sign with our name on it. What a nice touch. I think a person can arrange to be picked up if the car is avaiable. We had not done this, but since it was raining Stefano picked us up and also took us to the bus station the next morning. We booked this hotel in June and had mentioned that we would be arriving by bus. We offered him a tip and he would not take it.
The hotel is well maintained with attention to detail. The breakfast was a good one. They had the usual pastries plus yogurt ,cereal. water, juice,cheeses and packages meat. The beds were good along with the pillows. The shower was in the tub with no shower curtain, but was not a problem. I would highly reccomend this hotel. The cost was 65 euro. They also had free internet.
Thanks again Stefano

This was the cheapest of 7 places we stayed in Tuscany and Umbria, and one of the best. The room was tiny but very clean and very quiet. The previous reviewer described it well, but our room had a magnificent stone walled private terrace with plants and wrought iron furniture. Ask for this room! I only wish we had been there during warmer days so we could enjoy it more. There are many stone stairs to get to the hotel, but it is only two minutes off the main piazza where the Temple of Minerva, great shopping and gelato are located.
