My best friend and I booked hotel Alexander in Assisi last year via booking.com and a few days before our arrival we got a call from booking.com informing us that the hotel was overbooked and we can choose any other hotel we want in the same star and they will book for us at no additional cost even if the hotel we choose was more expensive. We did not want to spend our holiday checking emails and communicating with booking.com so we decided to thank them and book ourselves. We searched a few hotels and decided to Lietto Soggiorno (despite it being 2 stars) because of the great reviews we read.
We did not regret it. The hotel is a gem in Assisi. Very small but feels like home. The owner and probably his relative/daughter are running the hotel themselves. They are very friendly and make you feel like you've been invited to spend a holiday at a relative's place.
The location is excellent, St. Francesco Basilica is at the end of the street upwards (8 min walk) and Santa Clara is at the end of the street downwards! The hotel is central to all other attractions and little shops in the city. Breakfast is delicious and the owner sits and serves guests himself.
The double room was small but cozy and we did not have any problems placing our 2 suitcases in it. The bathroom is also small but you have a shower, toilet and sink. I dont remember if there was a bidet.
The only negative thing I found in the hotel was the lack of air condition in the rooms. If you go in the summer, it is quite hot and uncomfortable.
We are going to Assisi again end of October and I am booking in Lietto Soggiorno since the weather will not be hot any more!
