We choose this hotel because of the excellent rating here and in booking.com. And we expected more... We had some problems. The chair in our room was impossible to be used because it was broken!!! The computer in the lobby was broken too! The bed creaked and I'm 56 kilos! We spend 3 nights there and we had the impression that once a week some articles are provided for breakfast and when something is gone not replacement is provided! In the breakfast, many choices of tea and marmalade, one cake and one pie, some muesli, yogurt, water, biscuits, cheese, salami (not good quality). Not fruits, vegetables or eggs for a normal breakfast. The location is in the middle of Assisi (a charming religious town when bells ring at 7am the first one and at 22:45pm the last ones!). Some steps lead to La Fortezza, for us this not was an inconvenient, but it can be. This is explicit in the hotel presentation, so, no problem. In the hotel's site is written that you can use the computer (it's absolutely broken- month November 2013), is written that in price are included transport tickets for public transport! That's not true. We ask the manager, no tickets!
I write all this because small things give a little negative impression. There are good things too. Clean room and clean hotel. Amazing roof view. Charming staff. Rooms with flower name, hot water in bathroom. Every day change of towels (they are very thin). Umbrellas provided for free in rainy days. Assisi maps, Assisi card with restaurants discount (5-10%) provided too. An Assisi book with all kind of information provided for the days of stay.
That's why my impression is negative and positive. I'm not sure that I will choose the same hotel in an other trip to the beautiful Assisi.
