We chose Hotel Berti between two online offerings. I searched for a two star hotel with wi-fi, air conditioning, central location and breakfast included. It was the perfect choice. Since we arrived at the train station late, almost 9 PM, we took a cab, €15, but the "C" line bus from Assisi station stops at Porta San Pietro just steps from the hotel. We were met by Lanfranco who had carried our luggage up to the room before we had finished paying the cab. As others have noted the rooms are small. The hotel is in a very old typical Assisi stone building that it shares with the post office, so everything is small, but not cramped. The room was immaculate, We were on the first floor and the wi-fi worked perfectly as did the remote controlled air conditioner. Someone complained that the location is noisy. We didn't find that be the situation at all. It's on a quiet street, away from the center. No fault of the hotel, but the walk to the Piazza del Comune, basically the center of town, is a long uphill climb. Everything in Assisi is uphill or downhill. I recommend the longer, scenic way and exit left from the hotel up Piagga San Pietro to the Basilica of San Francesco and then turn up Via San Francesco from there. It's much less steep and there's more to see on the way. Of course, you'll want to visit the Basilica on the way. If you want to avoid the walk, the "B" line bus also stops at Porta San Pietro, just outside the hotel and it will take you to Piazza del Comune, €2 on the bus, a ticket at a newstand is €1.30. The long distance buses also stop there which was handy when we left for Rome. Lanfranco was also there in the morning with an excellent breakfast served outside on a shaded patio, in fact, Lanfranco seems to the only one at the hotel. He gave us a map, suggested several places to visit and was always helpful. Incidentally, the other hotel I considered was just off the Piazza del Comune, but up several flights of steps and didn't appear to be open when I passed by, so I doubly glad I chose Hotel Berti. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
