This was a pretty good hotel for the price. If we go back to Assisi, it would probably not be our first choice to stay there again, but we would not necessarily be opposed to it.
The location is great. It is a 5 minute walk from St. Clare’s Basilica and a 10 minute walk from St. Francis. There is also a very nice church right outside the door. It is about 1 minute away from a bunch of shops and restaurants. The room was large for a European hotel room.
The only negatives are:
1) There is no elevator. If you are traveling from another country and have lots of luggage, it is a real hassle to carry it all up three floors on a narrow wooden staircase. We paid similar prices at all our other hotels in Italy, and all of them had elevators.
2) They use regular metal keys, which you have to use to lock and unlock your room, even from the inside. Being a former volunteer fireman, it makes me extremely nervous to think I would have to find a key and unlock the door in order to get out of the room in case of a fire. Again, we paid similar prices at other hotels, and all of the others used electronic key cards. More
