Hotel location superb.Posted Oct 27, 2013
Room view outstanding. Bed horrible! Uncomfortable beyond belief. Bathroom dirty. Shower had mold in tile grout. Floor disgusting. Breakfast food boring but edible.

Nice locationPosted Oct 18, 2013
Cons: No other hotel I stayed in while in Italy required me to pay for my internet connection. Fee was reasonable but no one else made me pay at all.
This hotel is located practically next to the cathedral so the location is perfect. That said, be prepared for a barebones room. It was fine for a night or two but was essentially a clean bed and a warm shower. I visited when Assissi had lots of pilgrims attending and in talking with them, everyone started the comparison to their university dorm rooms of the 1980s.

Perfect locationPosted Oct 4, 2013
For what it was (3 star hotel) it was fine. Great location, nice little restaurant, adequate rooms. Staff were ok, though not overly friendly.

Loved the charm and feel of the Hotel de San Francesco. Exterior of the hotel is amazing and the fact that it is a few steps from the Basilica makes this a fabulous place to stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable but somewhat dated in their amenities. We had a rental vehicle and parking was a bit of a hike (typical of the entire town, not just this hotel). The included breakfast was more than adequate, just a bit different than standard American hotel breakfast offerings. Eggs, bacon, and sausage, and then lots of cakes, cookies, breads, and to s of Nutella. I would definitely stay here again as the location is great for seeing the basilica and for walking around town. For the very reasonable nightly rate, it was VERY well worth it. The staff was very nice as well, and they went out of their way to help us with our language to improve our Italian phrases..

Decent, but not exactly luxuriousPosted Aug 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
It's a decent three star hotel that's very close to the Basilica of St. Francis. Rooms are small, the air conditioning isn't very strong, and the beds aren't terribly comfortable, but Assisi doesn't have much in the realm of upscale hotels so it'll do just fine for one night. I didn't enjoy paying 3 Euro for 24 hours of WiFi for one device.

Perfect location, family-owned and operatedPosted Jun 29, 2013
Cons: Offer free wifi.
I'd been to Assisi two years ago but just for a day. I fell in love with the place and knew I wanted to return for a longer period. We had lunched right next to Hotel San Francesco so I knew that's where I wanted to stay. I was travelling solo thus my room was very tiny with a cot-like single bed--very Euro style--but if I looked out my window I could see the Basilica. It was small but clean and comfortable enough. I could hear noise and crying baby from room next door one night, but it was not too disturbing. I was on an upper floor with short easy access to the rooftop deck. Here I would sit in the evening to view the stunning sunset over the Basilica and hills beyond. The location was convenient to St. Francis immediately nearby, or up the hill to Piazza, St. Clare, and Duomo. I enjoyed the activity of the area. The hotel staff were very helpful. I wish I had been able to speak more Italian because English for many of the staff was limited. The restaurant (for patrons only) was adequate for breakfast--coffee to die for; and dinner was by pre-order prix fixe or a la carte. There was such a charm and old-world feeling about this small family-owned and operated property. They sincerely were interested in ensuring I was comfortable and had what I needed. One criticism was the price for wifi. I am hoping to make an annual pilgrimage to Assisi and would definitely stay here again.

Pretty good hotelPosted Jun 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Was a nice hotel in terms of cleanliness and friendliness. Free breakfast was pretty good. The location was near everything (but its a very small town so that's not saying much). The problem with the location was that it was noisy at night with people on the streets, on the patio, and especially in the mornings because its right next to the basilica. The rest of the downfalls about the room, small bathroom, weird shower, are all secondary to the age of the town and any place would likely be just as rustic.

Great locationPosted Jun 1, 2013
Pros: Views and location
Great location next to the basilica! Great views, friendly staff, and a nice breakfast. Beds needed to be updated, but would recommend the hotel without hesitation.

Assisi for a day!Posted Mar 2, 2013
Pros: Clean rooms...excellent breakfast.
This is a modest hotel in a beautiful location just across the street from San Fancesco Church... a three star hotel. The rooms were a little outdated but were very clean and the hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. An excellent breakfast was included in the price of the hotel. The views from the hotel are breathtaking. Additionally, there is a bakery and restaurant attached to the hotel that serve excellent food. I would recommend taking a taxi (20 Euro) from the train station to the hotel as "old Assisi" is on a steep hillside. You can take a bus but be advised with will have to walk about a little over a mile from the bus depot to get to the hotel. I would stay at this hotel again.
