What a delightful reception we had upon arriving at Grotta Antica Hotel! The hotel staff is engaged and hospitable, immediately making us feel more like long awaited guests than costumers. The hotel is conveniently, centrally located but tucked down a side street so it feels quiet and private and the only sound that greets you upon waking is the sweet... More

Staff was enthusiastic and friendly. We were sad we didnt have the chance to try their resaturant. Located in a little walking street just off the main Assisi square. Clean, comfortable, spacious room. We had a small desk and a full sized white couch next to the bed. A shower in a real tub (for a change) so the whole... More

Tucked away in a tiny cobbled back lane, this hotel is certainly central inside the old city of Assisi. No lift so be prepared to carry luggage up quiet a few stairs. We were in the top room and had a bit of a climb. Room 7 was big but the bathroom tiny. Sad to say the beds were not... More

My sister and I booked in to Grotta Antica in the beginning of May. We found ourselves in the midst of Calendimaggio. The traditional annual spring festival. Grottta Antics is very close to the centre of town where it all takes place. Our room was on the ground floor and was small but spotless. It was extremely convenient to the... More

We were fortunate to find shelter for 2 days and three nights in Assisi after fiddling around with places to stay. As others have said, the rooms are basic. We had a problem with the shower drain in that it would not drain. This became a bigger problem as it was connected to the rest of the bathroom; no separate... More

We had a very pleasant two night stay. Nice simple accommodations. Family managed and were delightful. Excellent evening meals, homey atmosphere like eating in local home. Manager family dined in table next to Ours. Very reasonable and good location. Difficult to find. It would be helpful to identify Piazza Del Comune and Chesa Nuova as landmarks on web page.

We stumbled across Grotta Antica after several other choices were already booked. We were welcomed as part of the family and all of our needs were well taken care of. Nadia is a sweetheart and even though she doesn't speak English it's pretty easy to communicate with her. Other members of the family do speak English. The rooms are basic... More

This was one of our favorite hotels we stayed at during our 12 day Italy trip. The family that runs the hotel and restaurant are the nicest, most helpful and accommodating we encountered! The owner noticed I was cold during dinner in their restaurant (which is delicious by the way) and without being asked, sent an extra blanket up to... More

We chose Grotta Antica among all other hotels in Assisi because of its location, as very easy to reach by stroll all corners of Assisi and being right near Piazza del Comune. And what a pleasant surprise it was, exceeding our expectations. Tucked on a narrow street full of charm, Grotta Antica boasts not only a great location, but an... More
