What a wonderful 4 day stay we had at Hotel Ideale in May, all the reviews that I read on TA give a true representation of this family run hotel. I booked our room directly with the hotel, the email communication with the hotel was prompt, and later on I was able to negotiate with the hotel for them to purchase on my behalf 3-day ticket passes to the Calendimaggio festival which was on during our stay (an absolutely amazing event).
It was service with a smile from the moment we checked in to the moment we departed, English is not spoken by all but we all got by and understood one another. We were fortunate to be given room 31 which has stunning views in two directions, down into the valley and towards the centre of town. The room is simple, queen sized bed, desk, television, refrigerator, wardrobe, and free WIFI with good connection. The bathroom was clean and bright, plenty of hot water, and had a view as well. Our balcony with a small table and chairs, was a great place to relax, have a drink, the views were amazing. We slept very well, lovely and quiet, comfortable bed and pillows, with outside shutters on the doors to keep the room dark for a sleep in.
Breakfast is served from 7:30-9:30am in the dining room on the ground floor near reception, plenty of attention is given to you, on arrival you will be offered an espresso/cappuccino. The buffet consists of cereals, yoghurts, meat and cheese, fresh fruit, breads, cakes, cornettos, juice, tea/coffee, etc. There is plenty to get you started.
In the afternoon is was lovely to take a drink outside on the garden terrace overlooking the valley, the hotel sells snacks, alcohol and coffee from the bar.
While staying at the hotel we realised that being at the top end of Assisi was preferable, less walking up hill to get to the centre. We traveled by bus to and from the train station in Santa Maria degli Angeli to get to Assisi, purchasing our bus tickets at the news stand at the station. 'Line C' bus runs every 30 minutes to Assisi. Get off at the last stop 'Piazza Matteotti' and cross the road and you arrive at the hotel. Assisi is a lovely friendly village, and would definitely stay here again for a comfortable, well valued stay.
