“Lovely eco hotel close to the city”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We only stayed one night as part of a 3 week tour of Italy but have fond memories of this lovely little hotel. Room are simple but very comfortable. Bathroom has a wet room principle which resulted in us flooding the bathroom but not a problem really. The hotel excelled at breakfast - real ham off the bone, local cheeses, good fruit and wonderful bread etc. Weather was not good which was a shame but hardly the hotel's fault. It is based very close to one of the entrances to the walled city & the staff really do try to assist with anything you want. If we re-visited Asissi we would not hesitate in staying there again.

We spent one night at this location and wish we had allotted more time. The rooms were very modern, well planned out, and the bathrooms - beautiful. The breakfast was one of the more extensive offered in our Italian experiences - even hard boiled eggs. The hotel is located in easy walking distance to town. We didn't need the free parking as we arrived in Assisi by train and had gotten excellent city bus directions in an e-mail from Marta. The bus connections worked well in both directions. Even though the hotel is located near a major road, we heard no traffic noise from our room that overlooked the round-about. We were extremely pleased with this choice of a hotel. Assisi is also a delightful town - we hope to go back some time in the future.

My wife and I used Assisi as a base of operations for a four night trip to Umbria this spring, and couldn't have been happier with our choice of Porta Nuova. Located immediately outside one of the main gates into Assisi, all of the sites of the town are accessible within a 30 minute walk. We had a room overlooking a small traffic circle, which was a little noisy, but only for about 45 minutes in the morning and again in the evening, but well outside even a lazy vacation sleep schedule. The room was smallish, but suited our needs very well, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was an amazing selection of treats, my favorites being the local Umbrian cheese, the torta della nonna and a wonderful lemon torta. The cappuccinos was a little weak for our tastes (maybe they thought that being Americans we couldn't handle real Italian versions), but the bar across the street served up the best (and most authentic) caffe macchiatos, so we started there for beverages and came back to the hotel for amazing food! We loved Assisi and look forward to staying at Hotel Porta Nuova again, and visit with our favorite cat of this trip, Camilla (an afternoon mainstay in the lobby).

An excellent location for a visit to Assisi. We picked it for the car park and the rest of the hotel was just as convenient. It appears to have had a recent major upgrade and our room was large, light and comfortable. We were there in November so it was not full. I've read the reviews that said it was noisy but I cannot agree. The double glazing windows certainly cut down any road noise as far as I can tell.

Just a five minute walk from one of the gates to Assisi its an excellent location for your visit to Assisi

A great stay just outside the Roman gate of the city. Convenient to the city, as well as Umbria. Small, quaint, and a pleasure. Service and accommodations were exceptional, at a very reasonable price. We will be back on our next trip to a magnificent city and country.

We spent 1 night in this hotel with classic B&B formula.
Hotel is located in good position next to Porta Nuova medioeval gate in the South entrance of Assisi center. Main feature of this hotel is its position and good car parking. You can easy leave your car and enjoy a good walk inside the center. Hotel has two type of rooms available. The valley view side has the best ones, they are renewed bedrooms with modern forniture and warm light. Unfortunately in my booking I under-evaluated this aspect and I chose the basic version which revealed dated forniture, small bathroom and old beds. Last but not least you will find a cosy view of a wall. Considering the small price difference betweeen basic and the view side I really reccomend view side. However staff is helpful and gentle, breakfast is continental and quite rich considering the limited number of rooms. Price was reasonable. Wifi was a bit slow but working. Definitively a fair good hotel but there are also better solutions in the same area.

Room Tip: Forget about basic rooms, Choose them only if you have limited budget.

We stayed at Hotel Porta Nuova for three nights and have to report that it was a disappointment. We'd have to humbly disagree with its favorable online reviews. We booked a valley view room and found that it mostly overlooked the very busy traffic route that nearly encircles the hotel. There is constant- and significant- traffic noise, which meant the view (and one's sleeping hours) happened through closed windows. Do not come here if you are looking for a quiet Assisi experience. In fact, our local tour guide questioned us at to why we ended up here and asked if we were able to sleep. The room was clean, modern, and fully equipped with amenities and free off-street parking is available. The breakfast was great. However, we also found that our host (?uncertain if this was the owner?) was dour and at times annoyed with even simple requests and we were more than happy to check out at the end of our stay. Don't believe every 8.8 rating you see on the internet!
