The Brufani is a wonderful hotel, not only for the old world charm of the building but mostly for the people who staff it. Valeria, Eva, Tina at the front desk always say hello to us by name and Lucio, the dining room manager is so very attentive. This does not come about by accident-it is all under the guidance of the GM, Stefano Chiesa who has greeted us upon our arrival each time we have stayed at the Brufani Hotel-when was the last time you were greeted by the GM of a hotel? We have traveled to Italy 10 times and stayed in many hotels and this has never happened at any other hotel. If you don't stay at the Brufani when you are in Perugia, you are missing a real gem.

My wife and I stayed for one night. Overall, the hotel is very nice. It sits on the edge of the bluff on which the city of Perugia is located. In front of the hotel is a small park. The vista of the valley below is beautiful. The hotel dates from 1886 and is filled with classical charm and elegance. It is well maintained. We found the service to be variable--sometimes excellent, sometimes less than attentive. We have two complaints. First, the air conditioning. Because we stayed in May, they had not yet turned on the air conditioning. At night, our room became very hot. We kept the window open, which cooled the room but then also brought in the noise from the main street below--which became very noisy starting at 6:00. Second, the breakfast was ok, but not up to the standards of a hotel of this caliber.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Giulieri, let me thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Perugia. I am sorry for what you mentioned about the air-conditiong and the buffet breakfast. Unfortunately, last May the weather was not good at all and the temperature was not high enough to swtich heating into air-conditioning. We tried, but all guests complained and wanted to keep heating. As regards buffet breakfast, which usually is one of our best strenght, Covid19 protocols do not allow to have a full buffet breakfast as we normally have. Anyway, honestly I think that, considering Covid19 protocols, we still have a very good buffet breakfast and whatever our guests wish to have in addition, our staff is at total disposal to serve them immediately. I really hope to have the opportunity to welcome and serve you again in the future and, in the meantime, I remain with my personal, Kindest regards, Stefano Chiesa General Manager

Very beautiful; nice rooms, quite good breakfast. Poor WiFi and rather small rooms though... Very friendly and efficient personal. In between good and excellent in all aspects. A pity that I didn't have the time to visit the pool with its antiquities.

I stayed here a few years back and it is still a lovely old hotel. It was again notable for its utterly quiet room, attentive, happy staff ( the reception woman was exceptional) and the general air of comfort. It was clean, with a large comfortable bed. The room we had this time had 3 ceiling to floor windows and a sofa.....a good size. Breakfast was a little different due to the restrictions imposed by Covid 19, but the staff made sterling efforts to make it work well. The hotel is well positioned and gives easy walking access to all the lovely town has to offer. A fine hotel, which I recommend. A little on the expensive, but worth it.

The Hotel Brufani is located in the heart of the city of Perugia. It is at one end of the mostly pedestrian avenue that takes you from Piazza d'Italia to the duomo and the Palazzo dei Priori (the Municipal Hall). The room we took had a splendid view of the surrounding countryside (Peurugia is situated at the top of a hill, 400+ meters above sea level, thus the commanding view of the surroundings). The room was spacious and impeccably furnished. The air conditioning was very quiet and effective. We had a wonderful bottle of Sagrantino on the terrace outside the bar (a local wine, recommended by the young man who was serving us). Breakfast in the morning was served in a lovely dining room. Instead of the usual buffet, we ordered our food at a table at the bak and we saw it prepared and served to us. The staff was unfailingly helpful and friendly. I was even allowed to park my car right in front of the hotel. An altogether exceptional experience. Thank you to all of them and my warmest recommend to anyone coming to Perugia.
