My friends and I stayed at the Sangallo for an entire week during the last week of August. Perugia was our base for various trips around Umbria and Toscana.
We certainly don’t regret our decision to book the Sangallo! We paid for a 4-star hotel and we got our money’s worth – and much more.
The Sangallo is centrally located. A few metres up the road there are escalators taking you up to the centre of Perugia. The escalators are open from 6am to 2am – very safe to use and free. There is a bus terminus just across the road from the hotel. The hotel is near a busy street but we all slept soundly at night.
ALL hotel staff were helpful and courteous – even the chefs. We asked for a varied Umbrian/Tuscan dinner each day and Piero, the ever-helpful restaurant manager, ensured just that. We preferred the red house wine but their wine list is quite adequate.
Don’t forget your swimsuit or gym-wear – the hotel has a well-equipped gym in floor -2. I have been to some 4-star hotels in Brussels and London but this 4-star hotel beats them all in terms of equipment (not to mention hygiene). We used to head to the indoor pool - which has a counter-current swimming and water jet, and a jacuzzi – nearly every day.
Our rooms were spotless – and maintained so every single day. Linen was changed every single day! The TV had around 50 channels in English, German, Turkish, Chinese and English. But who would want spend time watching TV in Perugia!? There is a safe in each room. We did not have an electric kettle in the room, however.
The breakfast. Some of my friends rarely have breakfast but they expect a 5-star breakfast when on holiday. Sangallo met their expectations without reserve. They have good coffee (unlike what has been stated in previous posts). Won’t comment on the choice of top nosh on offer. It meets the expectations of fussy travelers too. If you have special dietary requirements, inform the restaurant crew. Will not comment on the different types of cakes, muffins and tarts on offer each day. Sinful - but you burn the calories quite easily when walking up steep climbs which characterise many Umbrian towns and villages.
The Sangallo is a 4-star hotel with a 5-star service. Highly recommended.
