Reviewed March 11, 2013

My sister and I booked this hotel after seeing the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We stayed 3 nights and in retrospect wish we had stayed longer and used this central location (and comfy hotel with parking) while day-tripping to Gubbio and surrounding towns. We had a lovely room overlooking the town and valley, and found Assisi wonderfully walkable, so we were able to leave our rental parked safely. Wonderfully friendly hosts, delicious homemade espresso and cappacino at the ample breakfast table, and clean simple rooms. A pleasant and affordable place to feel at home in Assisi!

Room Tip: I had trouble hooking into their free wifi, but was able to find some in town, so no worries.

We booked the hotel because we depend totally on Rick Steves and his recommendations. (In fact, we actually bumped into Rick in Rome near the Spanish Steps last year as he was updating his Roman guide book.) We were at the Hotel Ideale in late November 2012. We had only planned to stay two nights but we loved it so much we extended to a full week. For several of the nights, because it was low season, we were the only guests in the hotel. We therefore had the chance to look at all of the hotel's rooms, including two that are detached from the hotel. We can't think of one negative thing to say about the hotel. It is so reasonably priced for the value and ambience it offers; it has free, onsite parking (if you are driving a GPS is helpful; if you are not driving you are a few paces from a major bus stop); it is in easy walking distance of several great restaurants; it has free wi-fi -- in fact, we heard the LSU-Arkansas football game on our computer (Geaux Tigers); and it is run by a lovely family that is friendly and so accommodating. There is Papa, who was in charge of a tree trimming project while we were there; Mama, who treated us to a great breakfast and coffee every morning; beautiful daughter Lara, her two lovely daughters and the house kitty, Romeo. We are Churcharists, and if you are like us there is no better base of operations if you want to see all the St. Francis/St. Clare shrines in the area, including Le Celle, located near Cortona (a trip we very highly recommend). In summary, you can't go wrong with Hotel Ideale in Assisi, but if you want to go in high season, you'd better book early! Ciao and Blessings! Dan and Lisette Baton Rouge dan@lca.org

My husband and I stayed two nights in Hotel Ideale. It really felt very homey, with little sense of style or sophistication about it. The furniture in the room wasn't well put together and felt worn but the bed was comfortable enough. The location was wonderful and quickly accessible to the centre of Assisi through little lanes that felt like a maze initially. We had a room on the corner ground level that looks out to a great vista - the valley and a peek of the town with its many church steeples. One of the pluses must be the availability of parking spaces in the compound, which we noticed we might not have if we had used some other hotels in Assisi. When we were there, the patriarch of the family was harvesting the fruits from the olive trees in the carpark. Breakfast was adequate and the coffee delightful.

My husband and I stayed two nights at Hotel Ideale in a corner room with balcony that viewed all of Assisi. The room was small, basic and very clean, and the breakfast was a small but well-stocked buffet. The property sits on a lovely terrace with just spectacular views, and it is very quiet. It is also directly across the street from Piazza Matteotti where you can take the bus to the train station. It is an easy walk downhill to the center to see all of the gorgeous buildings. It was a delight to come back to the terrace at night.

Room Tip: Room with balcony overlooking Assisi.

Why Hotel Ideale in Assisi is rated as only two stars is a mystery to us. The room was superb, spacious, very comfortable bed, balcony with a magnificent view of the city and lovely bathroom. The breakfast was great, providing a range of things to eat and lovely coffee. The proximity to the city is a big plus. The lady who runs it, Lara, is delightful and couldn't be more helpful. Perhaps the reason it is rated two star is that it is family run, but we have been travelling for six weeks now and it is close to being the best value place overall we have stayed in.

This was an unexpected Gem. Situated on the outskirts of Assissi, we felt like we hit the jackpot when we walked into this hotel. It is a family run boutique hotel. Kept very clean, very sweet, with their cat Romeo ( a lovely short haired domestic) hanging out in the lobby, you feel like you entered a place out of the movies. The view from their back terrace overlooks the valley and the town and, if you didn't have sightseeing to do, you might just want to stay there and hang out. The same goes for our room. A large room with a french doors opening to a terrace that also overlooked the valley in one direction and the town in the other. I wished we could sit there for hours. They also have ample parking. I will definitely stay there again. P.S. I am very particular about my hotels;)

Room Tip: Choose room 31, it was the best location.

Small and quaint hotel at the top end of Assisi. Easily accessible from the highway, parking lot on premises. Right at the bus for easy access to the basilica. Beautiful views from the garden, terrace and each room overlooking Assisi, its many churches and the Umbrian valley below. Family owned and operated, the staff speaks limited english but are so kind and helpful and genuine - you feel like you are visiting with friends. Rooms are clean and comfortable, internet/ wifi available but a bit intermittent however cafes right around the corner have strong signals/access. Great value for the money.

Room Tip: There are only 12 rooms - you might want to ask for one with a balcony overlooking the patio but all...
