Wonderful location and if you can get a room at the back of the building overlooking the valley. If travelling by train get the bus to the bust station and a cab to the hotel , beware unlicensed cabs at the rail station. The staff are wonderfully helpful as are the staff in the restaurant where the meals are excellent.If... More

This hotel is perfectly located between St. Francis Basilica and St. Clare's. The staff are the nicest people you will ever meet as are most of the people in Assisi! The staff learned the names of several people in our group and were very caring! Martin who was a waiter as well as worked the front desk was a favorite... More

Be sure to get a room on the correct side of the hotel to get the view. The hotel was very warm and comfortable - and roomy, especially by European standards. We had 1 snag and that was the elevator was out of service for a couple of hours but but that couldn't be helped. We did eat dinner one... More

The Fontebella Hotel was a true delight. Aside from having to climb heart attack hill to get to the property, this is one of the most charming hotels in Assisi. My room was in a little annex adjacent to the restaurant. I am sure this annex dated to the time of Saint Francis, himself, which just added to the charm.... More

I have been staying at this hotel for many years, it is a wonderful hotel which is inside the city walls with a wonderful view of the valley. The service is friendly, efficient, and always with a warm greeting! Their adjoining restaurant offers excellent food & wine with a panoramic view of the valley. Make sure you ask for a... More

Really nice hotel - as with most of Assisi hotels limited parking is the only draw back. Rooms were slightly smaller than normal but again suspect most hotels are like this is a town built on a hill. The view more than made up for this. Breakfast was nice and solid nothing amazing but a good start to the day.... More

Centrally located in the old town, this hotel is clean and quiet, with conveniant parking on the street. Staff is welcoming and service-minded. While the bathroom is rather dark, and the breakfast consists mainly of cakes, beds are comfy and the hotel has English news channels. Ask for a room with a view - it is spectacular.

On the road to the Basilica, this lovely hotel has a wonderful dining room wiht classic service. I ordered the three course lunch and was pleased with each course! The pasta was ravioli...hand made with local ingredients in a lovely sauce. The chicken dish was also nicely done. However, the dessert cake was a marvel with layers including whipped cream... More

Our travel plans changed and we had to book Hotel Fontebella at the last minute. Michele at the front desk was extremely helpful.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and they never disappoint. The location is perfect for us and they have parking! What the parking means is that you can get to the hotel and just leave the car. The upper city of Assisi is made for walking and the Hotel Fontebella is positioned in a perfect... More
