When I was looking for a hotel to stay in Assisi this one was not in my list because 1 thing: This is not located in Assisi, this is about 2 or 3 miles away (5 minutes car driving). After a more detailed look I choose this one (thanks God, I'll explain below). The hotel is the nicest I've stayed in Italy 'till now: nice Staff, nice and modern room, good price, good breakfast, free internet, calm, quiet and brand new -- seems like they just built it.
About the location: For the ones that does not know the place (just like me) we use to think that it is a plus to stay directly on the city of Assisi, this is very wrong. Assisi is a medieval city with small and very tiny streets among a lot of hills and very few (almost none) place to park in the middle of the city. All the hotels over there are really small and adapted to fit the buildings from 800 years ago (the whole city cannot be touched because this is a unesco world patrimonial). When arriving at the city, you can park at the entrance of it, just near the San Francesco Basilica for 10 Euros a day (or get a cab for around 6 euros) and start walking from there. There are lots of places to visit and 98% of them is just at walking distance. The only time I needed the car again was to go to the church of San Damiano (the original church of San Francesco) which is located a couple miles away from the city.
Pros: brand new, modern rooms, nice staff, good breakfast, free internet.
Cons: found none.
