“A nice hotel but needs some renovation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We stayed here Valentine's Day weekend. The hotel needs renovation but we couldn't complain because the rooms are very clean and the staff is super nice and accommodating. It is centrally located---a few minutes from Perugia, Assessi and Gubbio. The hotel is quiet although the walls are thin. The shower is awesome (very hot and good water pressure).

The beds are standard although the pillows are extremely uncomfortable (not soft at all). The worst thing about the room was it was very hot at night. Even though we turned the heat off, it was an usually hot weekend in the area and perhaps the heat dosen't 100% turn off in the winter season (even though we asked reception to ensure our heat was off). We opened the window in the middle of the night but then we heard the traffic from the highway as we were facing the highway.

Breakfast was OK--not a lot of fresh options but overall average. There is a machine where you can make your own coffee but the waiter will make you a fresh cappuccino, if you like.

Overall, the hotel deserves at least 4 stars but because of the pillows and the heat issue, we had to give it three stars.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the highway.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We stayed here during our visit in Umbria, and overall, our impression was a positive one. Our room was spacious and the hotel's location near the main road, made it an ideal base from which to go on day trips across Umbria. There isn't anything to see in Ponte San Giovanni though, so people without car might want to find a hotel closer to the center of Perguia instead. The breakfast buffet was good and meat and cheese was provided by the staff for those of us who don't share the Italian sentiment for a breakfast consisting solely of sweets. The hotel restaurant was absolutely horrendous though. We ate there on our first night because we were too tired to go out for dinner, and we immediately regretted it. My girlfriend's pasta was drowning in oil and while mine was totally edible, it was also completely forgettable. The pork chop I had afterwards though, was terrible. I have seen a lot of people here praise the restaurant, and I just don't get it. Maybe the chef was on holiday when we ate there, or it just happened to be the mother of all bad nights. Either way, was it not for an atrocious lunch in Orvieto, this would have been the worst meal of our 14 days in Tuscany and Umbria.

Overall it is a nice hotel and great value for money, but do find somewhere else to have dinner.

The reasons it didn't quite hit the top box in my book are:

1. It had all the good points that you need, but lacked chutzpah
2. Gruelling trek from the station
3. Restaurant closed on a Saturday night (turned out to be a cloud with a silver lining - the nearby family-run pizzeria was a delight in sight)

The food at the restaurant was uffff...yum! Phew, breakfast too was a tasty a-dish-on. It did what it said on the tin, but if you are one to look beyond the tin you will find something missing. A sparkle, a glimmer, a shimmer, a glisten.....

Discover the rest for yourself!

This hotel located right of freeway, 10-15 minutes driving from both Assisi and Perugia. Staff does not speak any English.
This is run down hotel from 80th. It was clean, with clean shower room, but shower cord was leaking in like 25 places… annoying. Towels and sheets were ok. Breakfast was included in the rate, but was really bad. It was nothing but old cakes. There was no butter or cream cheese, or plan bread. Coffee was even worth then food.

There is plenty of free parking right outside main door.
We booked it for cheap, for the money, it was ok to spend a night.

A good basic 3 star hotel in a handy location for those travelling by car. (Free parking available at the hotel.) Clean, comfortable with a nice continental breakfast included. Close enough to Perugia (which has plenty of suitable pay parking available) and on the way to Assisi. The standout feature of this place was the helpful staff. They were polite and happy to help with any requests and tourist information when asked. Our room was close to the highway so we were a bit wary about the noise but once the shutters were completely closed it was reduced to a soft hum and we had no trouble sleeping.
