“Nice enough hotel, friendly but tiny rooms”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

We spent one night here while visiting Assisi in April 2012.

The hotel is in the lower part of assisi - quite some distance from the historic part of the town. That said the lower part of the town is a pleasant enough place with an loveley large church and cheaper pizzareas and trattorias than the upper historic part of the town.

The hotel is clean and efficient, staff are friendly and the wifi works very well. However the rooms are very small as are the bathrooms. Nothing actually wrong at all - just small.

Breakfast was ok ~ usual Itallian breakfast buffet. We may have been very unlucky as there was a huge coach party with the ensuing queues and shortages of the odd item.

All in all nothing wrong and no horror stories - just a nice clean average hotel you won't go far wrong with.

We stayed here for two nights on our Trafalgar tour of Italy. The hotel is in the new part of Assisi and although the room was very small, it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was modern and very clean. It was a short walk from the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli which is well worth a visit. The hotel is in a nice area and the breakfast was excellent. Very friendly staff.

We have stayed at the hotel Frate Sole on a few occasionsand hve always found the staff very friendly and efficient.It is in fact a family run hotel
The rooms are spotlessly clean and vey comfortable but on the small side.
The restaurant called Sorella Luna is excellent with all the typical Umbrian dishes such as the pasta Stringozzi ragu Agnello al forno (roast Lamb) and other specialities. The restaurant is certainly worth a visit even if you arent staying in the hotel.
They have completely refurbished the dining room this past Winter and during the Spring Summer and Autumn it is possible to eat Al Fresco in the garden or have a drink or a lovely cappucino. There is also a small playground for children
The hotel is situated on the plains of Assisi inthe town of Santa Maria degli Angeli and five minutes walk from the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli which houses the Porziuncola the little church around which San Francesco set up his order of Friars

  • Liked — The food and the comfort and the jacuzzi shower
  • Disliked — All bathrooms dont have jacuzzi showers
