Abacus Hotel
Reviewed 25 July 2015

I spent two nights at this hotel on a three week group tour of Greece, Italy and France. I had read some reviews before hand and figured this would be a solid hotel. And it was. Nothing special, though. Just a good hotel.

The rooms were clean but plain. The beds weren't particularly comfortable but did the trick. The air conditioner was pretty weak, though, and the wifi internet was very slow. The bathroom was nice and spacious. There were also some nice bathroom amenities offered, more than the little packets of soap and shampoo typical of these kind of hotels. But overall, the room was unremarkable at best.

In my mind, the best part of this hotel was the location. The hotel is located close to the highway, with easy access to Assisi and Perugia. Within easy walking distance is the town of Santa Maria degli Angeli, including a lively town square with an assortment of shops, restaurants, and gelato shops. Also there is the beautiful basilica, a massive church built around a tiny old wooden church where St. Francis originally vowed poverty and started his religious vocation. Also very close to the hotel are some solid restaurants and a large grocery store. In particular there's a very good pizza place right across the main road from the hotel.

Another nice touch is that the lobby of the hotel resembles more a living room, with large couches and comfy chairs grouped around a pair of coffee tables. It made visiting with other members of the group relaxing and enjoyable.

Based on this stay, if I were to find myself in this area again, I would consider staying at this hotel again.

Reading all the wonderful reviews of this hotel, I wonder whether we are speaking about the same place. We stayed there for one night only in June 2015. The hotel is clean, modern and neat as are the rooms. The only staff we saw were those on the front desk. They did their job efficiently but offered no help or assistance at all. On the occasion when we asked for help the manager could speak no English. We were in Italy for 2 weeks and this was by far the worst hotel. The breakfast was sparse (even by European standards) and the room was hot and stuffy as the air-conditioner was pumping out hot air. The curtains were hung in such a way that the windows could not open properly. We had to wedge them open to get some fresh air.

Beautiful location for visiting Assisi and Santa Maria degli Angeli. Strategic base for exploring the country side of Umbria. Silent, good restaurant and amazing breakfast. Paolo, the Director, has a lot of life stories and adventures to share. I recommend this place for knowing Italy, the Italian culture and hospitality.

We enjoyed this hotel. We were appointed a room on the ground floor and it was good. Our friends unfortunately were given top floor room when we saw their room our heads hit the ceiling, it was an attic!!

I loved this hotel as it was on the foot of the hiils in Assisi perfect location . At night we could go to local eateries and have drinks at local bar and just walk back to hotel at night.

We stayed there for 4 nights and it was a fantastic experience: service was great, clean rooms, and nice brekkie too.

Room Tip: Lower floor rooms more spacious

We stayed at the hotel Abacus on June 23rd, 2008 as a part of our large-group 10-day bus tour of Italy. The hotel is located in Santa Maria degli Angeli, which is in the valley just below the town of Assisi. The hotel is situated just about two blocks away from Santa Maria degli Angeli basilica, which is extremely beautiful and well worth a visit.

Our room at this hotel was, unfortunately, located on the top floor which has slanted roofs like an attic. This means that the only window in the room slanted upward toward the sky. I was a little disappointed by this attic-style room, but otherwise our stay at this hotel was very pleasant. The staff were friendly and courteous. The room was average sized. And the furniture was very modern and comfortable. Our bathroom was very small - you could hardly even turn around in the shower and I am not a very big person. But, I think this also had to do with being in the "attic" room because I heard other people on our tour discussing how lovely their bathrooms were.

As a part of our tour, we had both dinner and breakfast included at the hotel. Both meals were presented very formally and were good. The staff in the dining room were equally as courteous as others, and made an accomodation to get me a hot chocolate since I don't drink coffee :) We also enjoyed a couple of cocktails in the bar in the evening which were reasonably priced.

Overall, this is a really, really nice hotel - just try to get a room on one of the lower floors!!!
