Italy’s Umbria region is famed for its gorgeous, historic towns – but there’s something particularly magical about the hilltop town of Assisi. Book a holiday here and you can stay in the Hotel Alexander, a modern, comfortable 3-star establishment perfectly situated for local attractions.
Hotel Alexander can be found in a historic building on the Piazza Chiesa Nuova, jostling for room amongst some of Assisi’s most breathtaking architecture – and just a 10-minute walk from the world-famous Basilica San Francesco. Each of the hotel’s nine rooms are equipped with a private bathroom, LCD television, air conditioning, health and beauty products, an electronic safe and free WiFi – not to mention some gorgeous views of the town. The furnishings are modern, bright and comfortable, and cribs are available on request for families travelling with young children. It’s also possible to book a suite if you’re in a larger group. Though there is no dinner restaurant within the hotel, the Alexander is affiliated with a pizzeria a few minutes away, La Braceria di Assisi, where you can enjoy a 10% discount on your food.
Multiple attractions can be found in the vicinity of the hotel, including the Piazza del Comune, the Basilica di Santa Chiara, and the Roman Forum and Archaeological Museum. There are numerous shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance, as well as bus stops serving the town and the wider region. The top highlights here, though, are the formidable Basilica San Francesco, the Rocca Maggiore fortress and, just out of town, the Eremo delle Carceri hermitage, where St Francis went to pray.
Please note that Tourist City Tax applies to all stays in Italy and is payable directly to the hotel.
The small cost can vary depending on star rating and is charged per person per night.
