just got back from 2 nights in Perugia we spent there for the Umbria jazz Festival. We stayed at the Jazz part of the Gio. I was afraid, we'd get a tiny room since on the reservation it was stated as 'small'. However, very average size hotel room. Room was clean. What we missed was a balcony and a regular shower. We had a jacuzzi kind of bathtub, with a shower hose, but you had to sit down in order to shower or you'd have flooded the entire bathroom. No shower curtain either.
Breakfast was good with a lot of things to choose from, even the yummy Yomo brand yogurt. However, no bacon and eggs, unless you wanted to pay for it.
The hotel is quite far from the escalator that will take you to the historic part of town. For the Umbria Jazz Festival period this is not a problem because a shuttle will take you to the escalator and back in hourly intervals. Latest departure from center is 2:20 a.m.
A nice feature is the pool on the roof of the hotel. Just 8 lounge chairs but it was nice to cool off after a long motorcycle ride to Perugia. Pool was hardly big enough to swim in, though!
