A remarkable 13th century building located in Perugia's historical district.Beautifully appointed guest rooms, arched stone roofs, frecos, beautiful wood floors, stunning breakfast room, fantastic library and roof top terrace. Every room that I visited was extremely clean. Reception staff is very friendly and helpful; breakfast staff not so much. This was by far the best hotel that we stayed in during our 2014 italy trip; and the least expensive by over $100/night.

Room Tip: Our friends had a 5th floor room with a terrace. Our room was to the front of the hotel along the s...

This was a first trip to Perugia, so figuring out which hotel to book was a small challenge. With a central location as a primary factor, we chose Hotel Fortuna. The hotel is located just steps off the main street, Corso Vannuci and was a perfect location. The staff was very friendly and very helpful when it came to booking a tour of the Perugina Chocolate Factory. The room was spacious and clean and the bed comfortable. We had a room that faced the street and while you could hear people sometime, the noise was not a problem.Breakfast was your standard fare. The roof deck on the 5th floor was a wonderful place to sit and soak up the sun and the sights on a sunny day. Sunset from the roof deck was also quite impressive. Definitely worth a stay.

The location of the hotel is very good and the staff is friendly in a businesslike manner. The breakfast room is pretty, the breakfast itself mediocre. Everything else about the hotel was not up to par. We had booked an economy room and therefore did not expect too much luxury, but what we found in room 203 was not what we would expect from a 3 star hotel. The bed was the worst I had during our two week round trip. The bathroom was ok and clean enough, but not great. The ventilation was bad. One day the air from the air conditioning smelled like a sewer! Even for an economy room, I would expect much better than this.

A great way of starting an Italian holiday is to begin in a regional city. Perugia and the Fortuna combine to make it a fabulous introduction to a wonderful country.

The Fortuna is situated in the historical centre of the old hill town amid the rich history which combines Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Gothic. It is on Via Bonazzi, which puts you very easy walking distance to everything in the old city. Modern Perugia is on the flat land surrounding the base of the hill. The hotel’s rooms are comfortable, many quite large, with good bathrooms. You can choose between being on Via Bonazzi, or at the back, facing towards hills and a courtyard. It is useful if you state your preference in your booking. Continental breakfast is included and there are good choices of cereals, breads, cheeses and meats, plus some hot choices. They make great coffee which is made by the staff and brought to your table. The staff are friendly and very obliging.

The hotel also has a gorgeous library/lounge, decorated in 18th century style. It’s a restful and tranquil space. Better still, there is a roof terrace on two floors which gives you not only sun and fresh air but also wonderful views to the valley below. The hotel also has apartments.

A few steps away down Via Bonazzi, you enter Corso Vanucci, an enormous pedestrian, paved space with several cafes and restaurants, clothing and beauty stores as well as pharmacies, and tourist shops selling paper goods, cards etc. The key historical buildings are located here, including the cathedral (built in the 15th century), Collegio del Cambio, (Corporation of Money Changers established in 1452), Palazzo dei Priori (the Priory, building commenced in 1292), the Merchant’s Guild building and the Fontana Maggiore (fountain). Palazzo dei Priori became the National Gallery of Umbria in the late 1800s and houses a vast collection as well as modern exhibitions, including photography. At the opposite (closest) end is Piazza Italia and access to bus transport both at the piazza as well as down escalators the take you down three levels to Piazza Partigiani and the regional bus network which basically takes you anywhere in Umbria. The bus also provides easy access to the rail station and the train network of Umbria and wider Italy.

I’ve stayed at the Hotel Fortuna twice and have found its service consistent and its location unbeatable.

Room Tip: stipulate your preference for street or hill facing room

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights in December 2013. Absolutely perfect location, really close to the city center (although Perugia is a small town and nothing is really too far!). Staff at the front desk was very helpful, rooms were spacious. Had to book 2 rooms for a family of 4. There are different terraces on different floors, great if you are a smoker or just want to enjoy a night of fresh air. Breakfast is awesome.

We stayed at this hotel for 10 days over Christmas 2013. Our rooms were warm and comfortable with lots of storage space. The staff were very friendly and extremely knowledgable about local services. The reading room was a very good place to gather and we were able to use it with our own wine for an evening drink, as the hotel was not too full over Christmas. Other guests were frequent visitors because of the hotel's central position, cosy,welcoming atmosphere and very reasonable charges. We will certainly return.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, choose a room not overlooking the street
