“Perfection in Perugia!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We just returned from almost a month in Italy, 3 nights of which were spent in incredibly beautiful Perugia at the Grandma Jenny Apartment. The Umbria Jazz Festival began the day we arrived (I can't say enough about how amazing it was -- but that's another review!). The apartment owner, our host, Andrea, picked the 4 of us up at the train station and whisked us to this wonderful, immaculately clean, apartment. We were so pleased to find it even brighter and better than the posted photos! We were even greeted with a delicious, complimentary bottle of local red wine! Andrea is personable and professional in every way, and could not have been any more helpful or accommodating -- from my first inquiry about availability, to the morning he dropped us back at the train station. The apartment itself is a jewel, with a beautiful, private garden where we spent considerable time. We were 4 adults staying here, and we never felt cramped or crowded, were provided all of the items and amenities we could have needed (I had specifically inquired about the apartment's coffeemaker as we are all big coffee drinkers, so he purchased/provided an american-size, 10-cup coffeemaker for us to use!), had ample hot water for showers, etc. The location of the apartment was away from the old city center, but virtually around the corner from the amazing system of escalators that take you directly up to the old city center. It could hardly have been any easier or more convenient. The apartment is a few minutes walk, all uphill, from a lovely grocery store -- but once you have your groceries, it's downhill all the way back to the apartment! We found our entire experience in Perugia -- and especially Andrea and the Grandma Jenny Apartment -- altogether perfect! Thank you so much for everything, Andrea!! Highly, highly recommended!!

Dear Susan -- thank you so much for your words: I am very happy that you had good time here. Perugia becomes a completely different town during the Umbria Jazz festival: very lively, crowded, full of music and exciting. And the Grandma Jenny apt is really 'inside the events'! Please, give my greetings to your friends; I do hope to see you all here again in the near future! All the best -- Andrea

“All the comforts of home close to the center of Perugia.”

person found this review helpful

This was a very comfortable place to stay in the lovely town of Perugia. Andrea, the owner, picked us up at the train station and made sure that we had everything that we needed. The kitchen was even stocked with coffee, tea, eggs, cereal, milk, crackers, cookies and fresh fruit! The apartment is very quiet as it is not right in the center of town, but there is a short walk with escalators to get to the center. It is obvious that Andrea takes great pride in this apartment and truly wants people to be happy and comfortable there. We really enjoyed our stay here in Perugia and wish we could have stayed longer.

“A delightful apartment in Perugia.”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is a delightful apartment with lots of space for two people and a private garden for siesta time. We stayed eleven nights and loved every minute.

Andrea met us at the airport and welcomed us to his home city. His love of Perugia was soon shared by us.

Perugia is a delightful and unusual city full of lovely places to eat. The first of five escalators starts nearby the apartment, and it takes only ten minutes from the apartment to the main square. Assisi, Lake Trasimeno, and Gubbio are all accessible via bus from the bus station which is only five minutes walk from the apartment..

There was no need to rush to the shops as all the essentials, and more, were there. The single rose on the dining table added the final touch.

My two grown children and I spent only two nights in the apartment but we would have stayed longer if we could. Alessandro met us, showed us this sweet apartment, and then helped us find free parking and made excellent recommendations on where to eat, etc. Since he and his family live in the building, he even invited us to visit if we wanted.

The apartment kitchen was well equipped with all the staples one would need plus coffee, milk, pasta, eggs, etc. The pull out bed in the living room was comfortable and easy enough to handle. The main bedroom was attractive and comfortable. The bathroom was perfectly adequate and more,considering the view of the town from the shower!

A comfortable apartment and the owner was helpful and welcoming. Very convenient for the escalator to the centro storico, bus station, local rail station and a supermarket which are all within a few hundred yards. We would certainly go back there.

“A Pleasant Way To Experience Perugia”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We are veteran American travelers who were visiting Perugia for the fourth time. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable for two persons. The appliances and amenities all functioned well. The small garden area allows for private outdoor relaxing. Andrea made us feel very welcome and he provided all the help we needed. The building is located on the south outskirts of the historic center of Perugia. Getting to the center requires some uphill walking and taking several elevators through the interesting maze of arches and ramps supporting the city. It takes about 10 minutes to reach Corso Vannucci. There is no private parking, but Andrea provided a pass which allowed for free parking in the public garage about 200 meters up the street. Via Cacciatori is not easy to access by car because it is one-way and requires making an unsigned loop to get there. We had to ask a taxi driver for directions. All-in-all it was a very pleasant and worthwhile stay.

Dear Ellen and Robert,
thank you very much for your review: we were happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Grandma Jenny apartment. So far we've always had guests coming by public transport, but I think that it may be very useful to add to our webpage some more indications to reach the apartment by car. We'll do this soon and thank you very much for highlighting this aspect. Hope you'll consider Grandma Jenny for your next visit to Perugia!
Best wishes

For us, a couple in our sixties who love city exploring by walking, and to find lodgings with more feeling than ordinary hotelrooms, the apartment turned out ideal. Location quite near the historic city but well below historic city price level mattered, as well as the location close to public transports. And furthermore, the very nice landlord family made our experience of Perugia even better.
