“Class, Comfort, Convenience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

Staying at the Hotel Alexander was an added bonus to Assisi, Italy. I'd heard a lot about how conveniently close some hotels are to major areas. Hotel Alexander raised the bar. Once you go down the hotel front steps, you are already in the Chiesa Nuova plaza. It can't be any more convenient than that. Other points are within a few minutes from the hotel. The room itself was modern, comfortable and with a very large bathroom. Breakfast at the terrace or just sitting there to admire a sunset is breathtaking with a view of the Chiesa Nuova dome and the gorgeous Umbria countryside. Our room was on the second floor (3rd by USA standards) and very quiet.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms on the ground floor since they are right next to the check-in desk and main door.

We stayed for 7 nights at Alexander, we enjoyed it thoroughly. The location is great, just next to the Piazza Comunale, in the middle of town. From there, you can reach all parts of the town without driving. Assisis streets are quite narrow, so it is always better to walk. And so you can find all the little nice restaurants, too.
Alexander has about seven rooms, quite generous, and all have different names. We had the "Raffaelo" Suite, and the window opens to the little piazza of a Church. The bathroom was big with rainshower (and a normal one), and there is plenty of space in the wardrobe. All was spotlessly clean. Aircondition worked well, though twice, the manager had to come and reset it. That wasn't a problem, as he always came within minutes.
Breakfast is on the roof terrace, and it is "Italian Standard". This means, nothing special, 2 kinds of juice, brioche and white bread, some sausage and cake, jam, butter and some kind of hot , baked ham bread. We bought some fresh fruit and rolls for ourselves after 2 days, as we wanted some variety. Coffee, Cappuccino, .... is excellent, though, and you get as many as you want.
Over all, we loved our stay at Alexander, as the location is great, service super friendly, and we loved our room. Internet is free, and parking is 5 minutes away. Best way is to drive to the Piazza del Comune, cross the Piazza and check in. Staff will give you a map and show you the way to the parking. And you will get a Assisi Card, which gives you discounts at parking and several restaurants and museums.

Room Tip: rooms on the upper floors are nice, Raffaello Suite and Giotto Suite are big, though you have to car...

This small hotel is well located but we got a room with no natural light which door was just 40 centimeters from the reception desk.
The problem is that we have asked for a room with view and our reservation was made two months in advance so they had enough time to let us know that tey did not have a room with a view available, didn't they?
We felt cheated

Hotel Alexander will not disappoint you! The only way to experience a country is to live like the locals. I felt I accomplished this while staying here. This is a quaint, quiet boutique hotel where you will feel "right at home." I loved everything about it. I loved the individual attention given to us each morning as we were served a very nice breakfast in the room (<3 ginseng coffee - yum yum), I loved the picturesque hilltop view and Simone was an absolute joy! They really take good care of you. We visited for Easter while it was cold and rainy. We spent the weekend having such a great experience in town, but coming home each evening to The Hotel was equally satisfying. I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Request a room with a great view of Assisi. It's worth the additional cost, if any, to open you...

Assisi is a fantastic city, and this hotel made our stay even better! The hotel is placed in the heart of Assisi which made it easy for us to visit all the main spots on foot, from Basilica San Francesco to San Damiano. The hotel is quite clean, has new nice furnished rooms and a very nice breakfast with an almost perfect view from the valley, the owner is also very friendly! I hope to come again next yera!
