This hotel is in a perfect spot for exploring Assisi, as it is near the main piazza and since Assisi is entirely on a hill, it is half-way down to the basilica, and half-way up to other churches and sites at the east side. The "suite" is great - large and well-equipped, except for that quirky shower. Just be sure to use the bathroom for everything else first, then have at it with the shower! We were in Assisi during a heat wave so used the shower a lot...and there is no air conditioning in the room, but we got some relief (not enough during the day) from a fan. Assisi is like a pizza oven; the stone buildings and streets absorb the heat all day, then radiate it out at night!
The breakfast was not extensive - the only fruit was a basket of apples. But we weren't hungry anyways because of the heat. The service was fine, and we were brought a tray with cold drinks when we checked in.
One glitch: when we went to check out, we were told the credit card machine wasn't working. We'll never know why (or if), and it could have been a problem since we were heading to the train station. The lesson is to always carry enough euros to settle your bill in cash if necessary...
