“Great room, good staff, great rate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Bad news or good news first? Let's start with the bad, just to get it out of the way:

There were a couple of things that were misleading on their website, which were the shuttle bus and the hotel's distance from the city center. On the website they really promote the shuttle bus, and that it's available to the guests free of charge from the train station to the hotel. It's true - but as I came to learn, only from 10:30 - 11:30 AM. So unless you have a need to get there at that time, you are completely out of luck.

The second thing I discovered, soon after arriving in Perugia, is that the hotel is quite a bit farther than 10 minutes on foot from the city center. While the train station is not in the center, it still took about 15 minutes with the bus. The bus, is 2 euro per ticket on the bus, and 1.50 euro at the shop. On foot, the walk is 21 minutes from the center, and that's at a good pace.

Now for all the good news: The hotel is very nice. The room was very comfortable, and if it were just slightly bigger, it would be an ideal apartment, in my opinion. The bathroom floors are heated - or it could have just been my cold feet's imagination - the flat panel TV is divine, although there are no English or German channels for the foreigner visiting from abroad; the bed was deliciously comfortable and the room can be set to your preferred temperature. If you are an avid mini-bar enthusiast, I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you; There were only two cans of coke and two small bottles of water. No liquor and no snacks.

The maid service was very friendly and did an excellent job. The bathroom was very nice, with a huge mirror, big bathtub and both the room and the hotel were very clean.

The restaurant is set apart from the hotel itself in another building. The breakfast was very good, and was included in the price of the room. I felt for all that was included it was a very reasonable price. For 2 people including breakfast we got the rate of 50 euros per night.
The breakfast included cereals, fruits, cheeses, salami, ham, toast, bread, rolls, juices, specially made coffee (you can order from the waiter what you like), tea, brioche (the Italian version of croissants - but better!), pastries...

The staff was good, but the friendliest person was at the reception desk in the mornings, and his name is Jacopo.

All in all our stay at the hotel was very enjoyable, and I would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Perugia. Just be mindful of the distance from both the train station and the city center. Unless you want to take a taxi, and spend that kind of money, be prepared that you will need to take at least one bus from wherever you're coming in the city and it's not a one stop kind of ride.

I stayed at this hotel for 11 days in July 2012. It's one of the best in Italy. It's quaint. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the main square. The hotel provides a shuttle, which is nice.

The rooms were modern, with excellent service. I stayed in a single. I came in late most nights and felt very safe.

There is a great restaraunt attached to the hotel, wich Truscan lamb chops that are incredible.

They also have a bar that stays open all day, and an excellent breakfast on a quaint terrace. I struggled to make it before 10am most mornings, but the staff was always gracious.

There were a few issues with my air conditioning, but the staff worked to resolve it.

Also, this place has a roof top pool with a view that can't be described in words. It is one of the best views in Perugia. The pool is average, but the view -- well its indescribable.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room towards the back of the building if you are a late sleeper.

We arrived by car from Rome and knew that Perugia is a city where cars are pretty useless.
So the hotel parking was very welcome. In more central hotels you have to leave your car down the hill.
As others have noted, the walk to the centre is no issue unless you use walking aids.
The hotel itself is a standard modern european business or congress hotel , ideal for large groups. It seems that there was at least one large corporate group and many family reunions taking place while we were there.
The front desk staff were outstanding - attentive and efficient. We needed to stay an extra night and this request was handled quickly without fuss.
We had booked a family room and like one other reviewer, we were delighted to have a double with connecting single room, so a two bathroom, three person suite - for less than euro100 per night !
The room fittings were clean - although we had to report that a couple of the lights were faulty. (why don't hotel cleaners check and report these things ?).
The restaurant was great - if a little over the top for some guests. We enjoyed an excellent four course stylish dinner with wine served by the sommelier in true style. Meanwhile a woman and her son looked decidedly uncomfortable in jeans ordering pizza.
Breakfast was good, but remember to order Capuccino from the waiters though, unless you prefer american style breakfast coffee from a vacuum flask of course.
Access to Perugia is a problem by any means - its not Los Angeles, but this hotel worked well for us.

Room Tip: If you need a family room, check out whether the adjoining rooms are available - best value

We knew before we arrived the exact location of the hotel and the long walk into town was not daunting for both my daughter and I because Perugia had been thoroughly researched prior to travel. It is difficult and expensive to park in Perugia so having a facility to park (as we did) underground was a major plus when booking. It is only about 20 minutes to Perugia airport, so this hotel was convenient and also gave us a chance to spend a day looking at not only the shops but also places of cultural interest. Therefore, it was most unfortunate to arrive at the hotel after a fairly long car journey, to discover that the toilet seat in our room was not secure and also there was a huge circular dark stain on the main carpeted area. When I went back down to the reception area, my request to have the seat mended fell on stony ground and I was advised that a 'man' would be available in about three hours. I did protest and was offered the keys to another room which was only a fraction of the size of the room we had been allocated. I was told that this was the only room available as the hotel was full and if we needed to use the bathroom, I could come down two flights of stairs and use the one in the lobby. I kept the original room but was most disappointed at the change in attitude of these two members of staff who ended up being rather off-hand and unhelpful. We spent most of the day in Perugia town during which time the seat was mended. Our room overlooked a very noisy street and due to poor sound-proofing, the surprising amount of external noise continued throughout the night making it difficult to rest. The beds were comfortable, with spare available pillows. The lighting in the entire area was rather dim causing us to use every available form of illumination. There were general signs of wear and tear.

Having been somewhat perturbed by the first two members of staff, we were heartened to discover that the rest of the staff we encountered were courteous, helpful and had a willing smile.The two evening reception staff members were a delight as were the chambermaid and the staff in the restaurant. The only meal we had at the hotel was breakfast and this was more than adequate for all tastes and covered everything from cereals, fresh fruit, patisserie delicacies, yoghourt to a minimal cooked breakfast. The food was in plentiful supply so would cater for the hungriest of appetites.

Our first impressions of the hotel did not spoil our 24 hours in Perugia and our assessment rating is based upon our arrival and the first couple of hours.

Room Tip: Always research the area you are visiting to make sure that travelling to and from local points of i...

This business hotel is also a great place to stay in Perugia, or rather just outside the walls. Cars aren't allowed in most of the town and parking is expensive, so this hotel's free parking was a plus, although the walk up to the town was exercise. We stayed 5 nights for a family rendez-vous and touring Umbria, and enjoyed the roof garden for catching up with each other. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful (and spoke much better English than our Italian), and helped arrange a chocolate factory visit. Breakfast at the hotel was what we'd come to expect in Italian hotels, with a variety of breakfast items. The rooms were comfortable and clean; reasonably, the deluxe room offered more than the budget room. We loved our stay in this hotel, which was a good base for sight-seeing in Umbria, and we loved Perugia.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views across the valley to Assisi.

We stayed in this hotel for a week. Apparently, it was the largest hotel in Perugia located in an outer suburb of Perugia on a 'mountain' and attracted bus tours of people. Our plan was to use it as a base to visit many smaller towns in this region. We intended to do this mainly by train but we also organised to rent a car for a few days. Our first disappointment was the hotel's location. I knew it would not be in the centre of Perugia so relied on the free hotel shuttle service that the hotel publicised. However, this service only ran once daily for an hour from 10.30am. Not only did it leave too late for us to start exploring but it was not available in the afternoons both to and from the centre. It took at least half an hour to walk to the centre via many steps so you would need to be in good physical condition.
While the room we were given was spacious and nice, with two windows overlooking a lovely view of the distance hills etc., it was starting to become run down. The plug in the bathroom sink did not work and for me, that was important as I wear contact lenses. The handle in the shower, located in the bath tub, had broken off and the separate make up mirror had no light and would not stay in one position. The shower leaked after long use so the second person who took a shower ended up with flooded floors. In spite of several reminders to staff behind the reception desk and many promises made by them that their repair-person would fix these things, no one ever turned up. They seemed very lay-back about it all. We could not find the powerpoint for the kettle (which had not been cleaned or used for ages) and in order to charge my mobile, camera and video, I had to do it all in the bathroom one after the other, where I found the only free power point. This was not easy as there was barely any room on the small sink and no bathroom shelves at all. Staff however, did purchase a feather pillow for me when I arrived when I asked for one so that I was able to use it on the second day onwards. I had originally requested it when I made the booking. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. The hotel computer in the lobby broke down on our second day and it took a few days before it was repaired which was very inconvenient. Undercover parking under the hotel was good as we hired a car for two days. The buffet breakfast had a large range of choices but the quality was not great. There was always some fresh fruit but not a big variety of it and no fresh fruit salad cut up - only tinned fruit. This was meant to be a four star hotel so we were disappointed. The yoghurt was very watery and generally speaking, the breakfast started becoming very mundane. When we returned to the hotel late in the evenings after a day's outing, because we were not in the centre, we ended up having quite a few meals in the hotel restaurant. The standard was good but the menu only changed twice a year so we ended up catching taxis to the city centre for dinner. The mattress was much too hard for me and my husband but we noticed that this was the case in most of the hotels in which we stayed in Italy.

Room Tip: We would not recommend this hotel if you wished to be close to the centre of Perugia and if you had...
