Hotel Posta Panoramic
Ranked #35 of 70 Hotels in Assisi
Reviewed 15 October 2013

This was the second time we've stayed at this nice little family-run hotel situated just a few steps from Piazza Della's Commune, the upper piazza in Assisi. Paolo, the owner, is a wonderful, customer-service focused man. Although he speaks very little English, he is eager to help his guests in any way he can. On our most recent trip, Paolo literally loaded us into his own ca, with our baggage, and drove us up to the parking lot at the top of town so we wouldn't have to try to navigate the narrow Assisi streets with our rental car.

The price for the rooms at the place is outstanding compared to others in town. Do your best to get one of the rooms with the little balconies overlooking the valley.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled as a couple

This is a great little hotel run by a friendly family, located up near the town center so close to everything. The family doens't speak English and even the college-aged kid assigned that duty is not so good, but what the heck; they are very friendly and even let me park in the father's coveted garage spot for a small fee. The views are stunning and the rooms are clean. There is no air conditioning but the open windows in the spring are perfect. Exceptional value for the money.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a view of the Assisi valley out back

Terrific little hotel located near the center of town. Run by a friendly family with little expertise in English, but didn't matter. Owner even parked my car in his coveted garage spot overnight (small fee). Views out the back of the valley are stunning. Heads up: no air conditioning. We were there in May and open windows cooled us off perfectly, but might be a challenge in deep summer. Otherwise highly recommend for the money.

Room Tip: Make sure you have view out the back

very nice and clean hotel , near the town main square, easlily reached by taxi or bus!
had a very nice view from tha balcony, but no air conditioner, since it was not that hot (april) it was ok! there were a few kids in the hotel staying in with their school staff and sometimes they could be very noise during the early morning, but then again it was not the hotels fault.

Hotel Posta Panoramic is an economy hotel located in the higher part of central Assisi and run by a friendly family. The location offers a good base for sightseeing, and there are some nice panoramic views indeed. These, however, have to be weighed against the plain rooms, average cleanliness, and a bit of luggage hauling through hilly terrain.

Posta Panoramic is on Via San Paolo, a road higher up the hills, and very close to the Piazza del Comune (town square in the center of Assisi). This makes it quite convenient for sightseeing. Due to the hilly nature and layout of Assisi, however, there are other factors to consider with respect to hotel location. (1) Assisi sits on a steep hillside facing south, and spreads in east-west direction. Via San Paolo runs through a higher part of the town, thus there are good view points in the hotel. But then those viewpoints are few (many rooms face the street to the North), sightseers will likely be outside during daylight hours when the views do matter, and there are better views to be had in the town, in particular in Rocca Maggiore. Besides, panoramic views in hilly Umbria tend to be better when looking up the hill toward the town. (2) The Assisi train station is about 4Km away to southwest, and travelers arriving on train need to take a bus (once every 30 minutes). Most visitors instinctively get off at the first stop of Porta San Pietro (the southwestern gate) since the famous Basilica di San Francesco looms above. If you have luggage or kids, don’t, and get off at the last stop in Piazza Matteotti (inside the eastern part of the town). This will save much of the uphill climb toward the hotel. To avoid too much exertion, it may be advantageous to choose a hotel closer to a bus stop or a parking lot, especially for short stays. For longer stays, there are more important factors to consider, such as room comfort and sleep quality.

And room comfort and sleep quality are not the strengths of this hotel. Rooms are color-painted but the color schemes are not well-balanced. Our room was rather dark and felt empty. Beds had worn-out springs, squeaked, and were uncomfortable. Bathroom was average, with some dust on towel hangers.

The breakfast is unremarkable, but is served in an airy hall with some views of the southern valley. The owner family members do not speak English but are friendly and try to be helpful.

Hotel Posta Panoramic is an amalgamation of friendly people, underwhelming rooms, and double-edged location. Its suitability depends on individual taste, needs, and conditions. Overall, our impression is an average one.

Wonderful and large room, sightseeing without comparison. Excellent, and it is at the center of assisi. Price not that expensive. It is really worthwhile to come back. At nigth at the balcony no one around and silence everywhere ... very inspiring.

Extremely helpful staff. Tasty food at attached restaurant. Elevator is only for a few of the floors - rooms are a bit difficult to find, especially if located on other side of restaurant. No air conditioning available. Very peaceful place, even with the traffic (one lane street) in front of hotel. I have stayed here several times while visiting Assisi. Will continue to book this hotel when traveling.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an outdoor patio - you won't be disappointed!
