This is an absolutely beautiful hotel, right in the heart of Perugia. It's family owned and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. The inside is beautifully decorated with exceptional pieces of art (the owner's hobby is to collect them) and there's even a family dog!
The building is very tall and therefore there are many stairs up to the rooms, not easy in 35' heat with a huge suitcase! The rooms however, are lovingly decorated and unique (my friend's room was completely different to mine), they are also very spacious with en-suite bathrooms. My room had double windows, a huge double bed that was very comfortable and the pillows were super comfy. There was a desk, a TV, a super fan –no air conditioning; a huge antique wardrobe with a wonderful full length mirror! One of my pet hates in hotel rooms is that they either have no mirrors, or there mirror is very far away from the plug socket (I like to straighten my hair in the mirror), and I’m pleased to say this wasn't the case here. The bathroom was a good size and the hotel provided toiletries, a hairdryer and plenty of fresh, clean towels. The shower was hot and had good water pressure.
Breakfast was typically Italian with one croissant and one bun, a yoghurt, and plenty of jams, marmalades and chocolate spreads. Tea, coffee and juice was also available. This really wasn't for me as I don't really like sweet stuff and would have preferred cheese, meats and eggs, but I did eat it and it was fine.
My main downfall with this hotel is the sleep quality, which nobody else seems to mention in their reviews. Because of the hotel's location in the historic centre, the bells chime every hour, quarter past, half past and quarter to ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT. The first night they woke me at 6am, so not bad, on the second night I slept right through, but that's because I closed all windows, turned off the fan and put ear plugs in, I did wake up sweating however, but it was worth it for a good night's sleep.
As we only stayed here two nights I could cope with the bells, but not sure how I would fare with a week of it. But aside from the bells, a super hotel.
