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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "The whole of Umbria is sparkling with beauty, a graceful and human beauty, made for man". Umbria, proud protector of the most authentic relationship between human being and nature, preserves its identity even now, in the pleasant serenity of its landscape, in the quiet grace of its cities and timeless villages, safe in a tailored design of narrow streets and steep paths; villages rich in artistic treasures and in memories of the past, able to seduce and attract the human spirit. Whoever visits Umbria will be completely fascinated by the nature of its land, green valleys enclosed by a polyhedral architecture of golden green, wonderful olive trees, and harmonious labyrinths of the sacred liquid, the sweet grapevines. Wild waterfalls fall from its wooded mounts, magnificent rivers flow, enchanting villages lie in the valleys, and outstanding ancient hamlets, fascinating fortresses and castles, national parks and thermal baths abound.
