I can strongly recommend this beautiful Hotel in Assisi. It is placed in the heart of this beautiful city, next to Chiesa Nuova that is built on the place where Francis was born and lived as youth. This was important for me and my family when we stayed here for the first time, but this little Hotel with its good atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff was the reason for us to come back! The rooms are nice and clean and with possibility for a baby-cot (as we needed ), and on the roof it is a terrace with possibility to relax in the sun, and with a marvelous view! I have stayed in this Hotel three times, and in these days I am ordering my next trip this spring. Assisi is not a big city and everything is nearby, but Alexander is very close to the Main Square Piazza del Comune and Temple of Minerva and the main street Corso Mazzini,and just few minutes walk to Chiesa Santa Chiara and Duomo San Rufino. For me and my family this is the best place to stay in Assisi, .. it feels almost as home! I give Hotel Alexander my warmest recommendations!!

I love Hotel Alexander. This was my second stay and this time I brought my parents, who also loved it. I was a bit worried about how they'd deal with the stairs (there's no elevator) but it was fine and the simple beauty of the rooms and view of the church next door (built on the spot where St. Francis's parents lived), the kindness of the staff and perfect location made up for any extra stairs :) The breakfast is simple (as should be expected in Italy) but tasty. The rooms are clean and good-sized with modern bathrooms and strong internet.
This time I requested the room on the roof, after discovering it during my last stay. It's quirky, with a bit of a "make-shift" shower, but a lot of fun to feel like you have your own private terrace (even though the solarium IS open to all guests). In winter it was a bit difficult to warm the entire space but the heater is just above the bed so sleeping was warm :)
I love Hotel Alexander and hope to have the opportunity to stay there again soon!

Gentilissima Cliente,
grazie, grazie, grazie.......è veramente un piacere ricevere recensioni come la sua, che apprezzano il luogo dove vanno in vacanza, apprezzano l'originalità e la soria del posto,
l'Hotel sorge all'interno di una antica abitazione e non possiamo starvolgere il palazzo ( per fortuna) sia esternamente che internamente ecco perchè non vi è l'ascensore ed anche perchè l'Hotel ha solamente 2 piani e mezzo, questo credo che sia anche il fascino delle vecchie abitazioni. La ringrazio per avere apprezzato tutto questo e spero di averla nuovamente nel nostro Hotel cercando di offrirgli sempre più la nostra simpatia, cortesia e disponibilità anche per risolvere i piccoli problemi di tutti i giorni.
Cordiali saluti

The location is perfect, right in the centre of Assisi, yet tucked away in a quiet square, which provided privacy. Walkable to all the local sights and good restaurants. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Assisi. Book early to avoid disappointment!

This small hotel located very heart of Assisi old town.
I went there this November by car but it was very difficult to find out the exact location.
I followed GPS but there is not so easy to go around by car in such a histrical town like Assisi.
And hotel is located in front of Piazza Chiesa Nuava where car can not come in !
So, if you want to take a car, you need to be little careful, however the hotel receptionist was very kind and he explained me how to reach there perfectly well and public parking was located near by.
The location of this hotel is very conveniently located to see all town around and hotel is charmingly decorated and very spacious room.
Maybe their breckfast need to be little better but as you think about the rate, it may be adequate.
I can recomend this hotel if you are looking for good location for sightseeing in this charming old town of Assisi.

Room Tip: Ask the instruction how to reach there, if you take a car.

This is our second time staying at this lovely hotel, and we had a wonderful stay!
We have been to Assisi many times before, and we have always talked about wanting to stay at Hotel Alexander. But for some reason we always manage to book our trips late so the hotel has been fully booked and we have stayed in other hotels. But finally, on our fifth trip to Assisi, we got a room in Hotel Alexander and we soon realized that this was our place to be in this beautiful town!!
The location of the hotel is perfect, right beside Chiesa Nuova and a few meters from the main square, and it’s close to all sights! It’s quiet in the nights, and the building and surroundings are so beautiful!!
On this trip we stayed for almost two weeks and we really felt at home! The rooms are big with a spacious bathroom and a huge shower. It has air conditioning, tv, minibar, free wi-fi, it’s very well equipped! It’s moderen furnished, always clean thanks to the two sweet ladies working there, and with a fabulous view!! The hotel also has a roof terrace and the view from there is just amazing!! The breakfast room is very cozy with reserved tables for each room. We had long mornings there enjoying a nice breakfast!
The manager of the hotel is very nice and helpful. Every time we needed help with something, or was wondering about something we could just ask him and he always helped us with a smile! They are excellent at taking care of their customers, and we always felt welcome!
Thank you!!
We are already looking forward to our next trip to this lovely town, and for us there’s no other place to stay than Hotel Alexander!! :)
Highly recommended!!!

This hotel had the most modern furnishings of anywhere we stayed Italy. The room and bathroom were both very clean. The location was great with a nice view out the window (I can not remember the name of our room). The service was OK. The gentleman who checked us in was nice and even carried our bags to our room, but seemed in a rush (we arrived about 20 minutes before the reception was to close). Our one complaint would be the breakfast. The breakfast room was extremely tiny. There was a much smaller selection than we encountered anywhere else. The girl running it was not very friendly or helpful - there were lots of empty platters/bowls that were never refreshed while we were there. We ended up going for breakfast and cappuccinos at a place down the street. Overall nice place to stay in Assisi in a good location.

We stayed here end Sept 2013 and were absolutely delighted with the accomodation and location of this hotel. The hotel is located within the old town of Assisi inside the walls. We stayed in the Da Vinci room which served our stay well. Large comfy beds, plenty of room to move for 3 people. The bathroom was clean, fresh and very well appointed. The view from our room was fabulous. We could look out over the roof top to a domed church next door. We thought it was fabulous to be able to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air. We were lucky we had excellent weather. We really enjoyed the roof top terrace, where we relaxed each night with a glass of wine or gelati and utilised the wi fi with no problems. Breakfast was great with a lovely selection of delicious things to try, even a cake!- no complaints from the kids! We enjoyed our stay and will definately go back to Assisi again and will definately stay here. The location was easy to reach by taxi from the train station. The hotel owners were very kind and helpful in providing information about what to see and getting around Assisi and were generous to help up and down steps with our luggage. This truly was the best place we stayed in Italy on our 3 week holiday. Well done and keep up the great job.

Room Tip: Da Vinci Room is on 1st floor and was well equiped for 3 people Double bed and 1 single
