Hotel Fontebella

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

If you are reading this review, you already know that the Fontebella Hotel is located in the picturesque and memorable hillside town of Assisi. The Fontebella is a very nice hotel, with great rooms overlooking the countryside, reasonably spacious rooms, a great restaurant, and a really nice included breakfast each day. The downside is that it is quite a hike from the bus stop, especially if you are toting luggage (and who isn't?). This is curable if you opt for a taxi from the train station, which on reflection I think I would suggest. My wife and I both enjoyed this hotel, and it was by far the nicest property we stayed at on our recent trip to Italy (we stayed in five hotels along the way). I think committing to this hotel would be a decision one would not regret.

My room had gorgeous view with church bells ringing. My room's decor was also prettier than pictured in this photo. Breakfast was good and the dining room for lunch was fantastic. Food and view was molto bene! The staff friendly and accomodating. I love Assisi. Hope to go back some day.

Really lovely hotel! We are in a standard double, it's a comfortable spacious room with a lovely view. Bathroom is clean and has space for toiletries. Breakfast buffet has hot and cold options - eggs, cereal, pastries etc and fresh fruit. Can walk to everything in the old town. Pablo checked us in, he was very friendly and helpful, we feel right at home. Very peaceful hotel. Beds are comfortable but a little on the soft side. Highly recommend this lovely hotel.

We were on a guided tour of a few cities in Italy. We spent 2 nights at this hotel. Our room was adequate. It was on the small side but it was clean and the service was friendly. What sold me on this hotel were the breathtaking views, from our room and from the restaurant. Amazing! It was a cool place to take in Assisi! Loved our time there.

This was an unexpected gem with a charming room. My window overlooked the street below but I slept very well. A/c was off for the season but windows opened. Food at this hotel was spectacular and many shops, along with the Basilica, were right nearby.

We spent 2 nights at Fontebella Hotel. It's location was great and what a beautiful valley view we had from our room! The room was very spacious and breakfast was good. Be prepared to walk many stairs and hills in Assisi. We would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Fontebella for one night during the recent heatwave in Italy - it was an unexpected stay after our holiday villa became too hot. We loved the hotel and would recommend it. We drove into Assisi, and found the hotel easily - the parking is on the other side of a small road from the hotel, but we had no problem getting a space. The welcome in reception was one of the nicest we've had. The room itself was clean, cool (thank goodness!) and a little quirky - we had a family room where our bed was downstairs and there was a small circular staircase to an inside balcony where the children slept. It wasn't massive but we really liked it as a family to have the split space whilst still being in the same room. The view from the room was gorgeous. We didn't eat the evening meal at the hotel but enjoyed a lovely breakfast and the hotel were happy for us to park for the rest of the next day so that we could enjoy Assisi somewhat more. Assisi isn't huge anyway, but from the hotel it was a 5 minute walk to the Basilica and 10 minutes or so to the main square. We recommend going up to the Rocca Maggiore at sunset, it's beautiful. The Fontebella is not all mod cons and does not feel like a new hotel - but we thought it was all the better for that with the character. We originally booked because it was available and a low price in August with two days notice, but when we go back we would definitely stay here again!

I/we have stayed at the Fontebella twice a year for three years now, and it is consistently clean, comfortable, peaceful. The rooms are not large, but lovely, and quiet. The breakfast is wonderful, and the dining room, the Frantoio, has a beautiful view of the valley; I suggest at least one sunset supper there. The front desk staff, Andrea, Michele, and Martin are very helpful. A special bonus is the sitting room off from the lobby. Through a short lane you arrive at the main destinations in about 10 minutes on foot.

Beautiful town-- nice hotel with stunning views, comfortable rooms and nice service. Not luxurious or super elegant but more than adequate-- also good location close to every major location in town a big plus

We were very happy staying here and will definitely stay here every time we come back. The staff was outstanding; they were warm, helpful, and courteous. We loved our room, it was roomy and the view was magnificent. We ate twice at the hotel restaurant. The food, staff, atmosphere was excellent. It's close to everything in Assisi. Know that you'll be doing a lot of walking but it's the best way of seeing things. If it sounds as if we like this hotel, you're right!
