“Charming Hotel with Wonderful views”
Reviewed August 7, 2009

I read about the man who seemed unfriendly and I knew who is was as soon as we met him. I think he does not have a good grasp of the english language and looks like a drill sargent but when my husband tried to say something in Italian he was nice to him. His wife speaks no English but the employees that work for them speak very good English and were very helpful. The place is very clean. I needed a room on the ground floor for my elderly parents since there is no evevator . We both got rooms on the ground floor which were roomy compared to most of the rooms we stayed in. We loved the red tiled floor and the steps up to the bathroom. We stayed at 6 hotels and this place had the best air conditioning. We did not have to pay extra as someone stated in another review. The location is right outside the gate to the old town. The beakfast was good but yo9u are only offered one cup of coffee.They have a parking lot as well. I would recommend this place to everyone and I would love to go back.

we found this hotel to be close to amenities,staff pleasant,rooms clean, view wonderful,breakfast ok,would have preferred some ham and cheese rather than so much sweet pastries but would definately stay here again. They prefer cash to credit cards.We found this place to be quiet and restful.

  • Liked — views from balcony and peace and quiet
  • Disliked — breakfast

Spent one night. Room was OK. Bed mediocre. Walls are paper thin. No extra touches. Free parking. Breakfast average. Staff provide obligatory service but not friendly.

We loved the location of the hotel, hugging the side of the hill, with outstanding views of Assisi and the Umbrian valley below. The room was spacious with a wonderful balcony/terrace. The staff was helpful, friendly, and interested in our wellfare. At breakfast, which included homemade pastries, the owner (perhaps manager) engaged me in a lively discussion about his experiences as a child in the town. Granted, it did help that I understood and spoke a bit of Italian.

I have read another review here that prompted me to write (belatedly) about our own experience at the Hotel Ideale:

I would like to be able to say this was our favorite place to stay during our two week trip to Italy because the hotel was beautiful, our room was clean, the view from our private balcony was spectacular, but the reception left much to be desired. An older male employee glared at us when we arrived in the lobby and just generally made us feel extremely unwelcome during our stay, as if we were invading his space. At one point during our stay, sewer gas had backed up in the bathroom drain (not the hotel's fault, it had to do with recent extreme rainfall), and when we mentioned it to this grumpy fellow, he accused us of not having flushed the toilet, blaming us for the smell! If we could have avoided this unpleasant man altogether we would have had nothing but rave reviews for the Hotel Ideale, however his hostile, unwelcoming, constant presence ruined our stay. We would not stay there again.

  • Disliked — That man!

We loved this hotel! Beautiful views and one of our best breakfasts in Italy. We had a great room with a balcony that overlooked Assisi. It was kind of confusing to find this hotel initially, but once we found it, we were glad that we did.

Beautiful hotel with splendid views from our balcony. Our family of four found the room spacious and clean. To park the car you have to literally SQUEEZE through the front gate (make sure they have it open for your arrival as it's off a busy major street), into a lovely olive treed car park/garden. The folks who run the hotel are pleasant enough but not overly friendly. The 10 minute walk inot the center of Assisi is very pleasant. The hotel advertised air conditioning but when we got there we were informed we would have to pay extra if we required it. Luckily it was a cooler August night so air conditioning was not an issue. A little noisy at night (off the main drag) but I can usually sleep through noise. Breakfasts were quite good. Would I stay again? Maybe. I guess so. If I seem ambivalent it's because the management seemed to regard us as just another set of tourists (which we surely are). Had I not stayed at other hotels where they welcome you warmly and make you feel special, I would give this place a higher rating.
