Hotels Near La Pinseria In Perugia
0.89km from La PinseriaI was with a group of seniors and this hotel is located up a hill and far from downtown Perugia - in fact it is located in the industrial area! We were told there was a heated pool and a Turkish bath. The pool was closed for the season and there were only saunas available at a cost of 10 euros per visit. The food for our group was average to poor. In fact one of our meals was so salty that everyone in our group of 21 sent their meal back! In order to take the bus you had to walk down the hill and go into the shopping center to get a ticket and then walk across the road and down a ways to get the city bus which was at least a 20 minute ride to downtown and extremely bumpy!! If you asked for a coffee or tea during the day you were charged for it! There is nothing around the hotel to do except go to the shopping center which is relatively small. This hotel is not good for seniors due to its location. I noticed that people who came in to eat received better food than the food our group got. The rooms are very basic but were clean. Our bathroom had a small shower stall and I mean small!

3.07km from La PinseriaThe room and bathroom were completely new, clean and at short walking distance from the railway station (2 min). Access to the center of Perugia is easy by a small and frequent metro. Close by a friendly pizzeria and a couple of supermarkets. As drawback, access to the place is a bit complex. Since this is an apartment with a few rooms to rent, we must call the staff to meet us at the entrance of the building, where they arrive in a few minutes. Breakfast, nice, but in a local coffee shop outside the building. Busy street with plenty of cars and corresponding noise.

3.88km from La PinseriaHotel Iris is a stunning old building where Richard Wagner apparently stayed late in his life. The building and bedrooms are full of character. Our room had a beautiful painted ceiling and a newly fitted bathroom but overall the hotel still needs some work to bring it up to date. The breakfast was adequate rather than superb and it was somewhat interesting carting what you wanted upstairs from the basement to go and sit on the outside area. But the staff were very friendly, helpful and it was great value. The town is a short, but steep walk up from the hotel and don’t be mislead by any google references to St Anna Station close by. It has now closed and the town can instead be accessed easily from the main railway station by the Mini Metro system. A comfortable stay and Perugia is well worth a visit.

3.99km from La PinseriaExcellent location just behind the centre. Perfect for walking. One floor up. no lift but a special chair lift for the disabled. Some free parking right outside. The room was large, clean but spartan. Bathroom worked and was not too small. Plugs were scarce. Very weak wifi. Although in a side street, it could be surprisingly noisy at times. Ask for a room away from the street. Good continental breakfast. Hosts very kind. Overall this is fine for people looking for the basics. Not cheap but the prices generally seem high.
Hotels Near La Pinseria In Perugia Review
The best breakfasts, most fabulous views, most attentive friendly owners, fabulous showers and fluffy towels, great location and all at a decent price - what’s not to love?! We loved our two stays in this fabulous little hotel tucked away in quiet part of the old city, just minutes from the main Centro Storico. The hosts are extremely helpful and accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Chiara was really helpful with telephoning the bus company for us, and her parents gave us an excellent dinner suggestion (pizza meditteraneo, just off the main Piazza). Our rooms (36 and 37) had spectacular views, and fantastic showers and deliciously fluffy towels. (Room 36 was a “superior room” and has a better view, whereas the “standard rooms” might be smaller or have less spectacular views. If you book the upstairs room with a terrace (room 40) the view is even more spectacular and you have a private terrace all to yourself on which you can take breakfast, but this room is priced more expensively). The breakfast buffet was also fantastic and far exceeded usual Italian standards, including boiled eggs, cheeses, meats, a selection of fresh breads and delicious pastries, yogurts, cereals, fruits, fresh juices and excellent coffee). The room also included a choice of Teas, coffees (instant) and packaged breads and croissants. The only slight downside to be aware of is that three of the rooms (31, 36, 37) open directly onto the breakfast area and therefore are a bit noisy from 8 AM until around 10 AM. For me however this wasn’t a major problem and was well worth the excellent view (from rooms 36 and 37 anyway). The location, service and facilities make this hotel a true gem, and we loved it so much we returned a week later... and no doubt we will be back again!
I generally only take the time to leave positive reviews, but this was the most horrible travel experience of my adult life. First the positives - it looks pretty and the gardens are well-maintained and beautiful. There were a few well-behaved dogs there and they were cute. There is WiFi - it's spotty and you have to jump from 1 to another depending on where you are on the property but it's free. There is laundry (5 euros). There is a spa that is decent with cool chairs. We arrived on a rainy Saturday and were checked into the room just off reception by a nice woman who spoke English and a man who was rather rude. We met the owner and he seemed very pleasant (note: the reception office is generally open during the day but there is often no one there and I'm not sure how you find them - we just wandered until we bumped into them or left a note). Our room was loud and smoky (because of the people loitering outside our room, some of whom were smoking) - and as 2 women, it felt lacking in privacy because the exterior door is glass with a sheer on it; we could not walk to the bathroom without passing the door. Sunday morning I was dressing and a roach fell out of my pants as I put them on. We were horrified and asked for a new room. We wanted a second floor room but none was available so they moved us further from reception on the ground floor. It was larger and they charged us 100 euros for that, in addition to the 40 euros they charged to clean the room we had shared with roaches for one night. They moved our luggage for us while we had fun on a day trip. Monday I got up and slid open the sheer on the exterior kitchen door and the heavy metal curtain rod fell on my head because there was no finial on it (I did not complain, things happen). After icing my head I needed to get away for the day and decided to stay at a lovely hotel on the way to Florence, where we planned to go Tuesday. Tuesday we were back and slept well. Wednesday we stayed close and relaxed. That afternoon we left a note requesting use of the laundry and the spa but we didn't hear back that day. We cooked that night. (Note: the gas stove won't light if the electric is not turned on by having the key card inserted in its slot - we didn't know that and were a little frustrated but it worked great once they told us). We have stayed at a lot of places in the US and Canada and the kitchen is comparatively poorly stocked for actual cooking (no salt, pepper, coffee, paper towels and limited cookware/utensils) but we did manage to make a wonderful meal. Thursday we went outside with our coffee and bumped into the very nice English-speaking woman. She asked when we wanted to use the spa and we said we'd do it right then. We bumped into the cleaning lady while getting ready and she asked if we wanted her to spray for bugs. We hadn't seen any in the new room but said yes to be safe. Then we took some wine and enjoyed the sauna, hot tub, and anti-gravity wooden rockers (for an
Located in the upper parts of this ancient and beautiful city. Everything is uphill as is the climb to the main square, cathedral and museum. Worth the climb. Booked direct to get €6 breakfast included at €272 (includes local tax) Traditional small hotel in need of some TLC. You might find the threadbare carpet on the stairs and rickety hand rail charming or the cut off ends a hazard. The bedroom furniture is standard and tasteless; bed is fin the tiny bathroom is adequate but the shower is really small! Cheap nasty shampoo sachets. Breakfast is a sad offer. I have never seen so many long life packets on offer in an area of outstanding culinary offers. Would not stay again but the staff offer a handy airport collection service for €25 each way. It’s. 2 star hotel firmly stuck in the last century. So you might find this charming we did not. Manage your expectations and you may like it. Buyer be aware
We stayed the night before our early morning flight at Perguia airport. The location is perfect, as it is just 100m from the airport but still so quiet and peaceful when you sit outside. There are not a lot of cars and just very few flights from the airport, so you won't be bothered by loud noises during the day nor night. Hospitality was perfect, staff very friendly (and speak english very well) and our room was really nice and stylish with great views. We enjoyed a good breakfast along with a pleasant chat with the owners, who told us a bit about the history of the place. It does not seem very appealing to stay somewhere so close to the airport, but I would definitely recommend, because it's perfect (especially when you have an early flight to catch).
I was happy to have found this hotel, was looking forward to visit it, but after couple of days I got the worst reservation experience of my life and in the end I booked to go to another hotel. I lost the rooms I had booked online because of them...very inefficient and not able to serve customers... The story goes like this: 1. I make a booking through a platform for 4 nights, with the possibility to cancel up to a specific date. 2. I contact the hotel early enough, asking for lowest possible price and some clarifications, as the price looked too high. 3. I get an offer not better than the one of the platform and the explanation that a baby is charged 15 euro per night (extra from what it was mentioned on the platform) and that breakfast for the baby is 5 euro per day!!! We had mentioned that we are bringing our own travel bed and that the baby is just 2 years old. So what is this charge of 15 euro, for the water of the shower he takes every two days? ? ? And the 5 euro for the breakfast is for the 1 banana he is going to eat???? 4. Anyway, i continue asking for a better price, explaining those points about the baby and other points. 5. I do not get a reply on time, so I have to move the reservation by one day on the system so that I do not have to pay anyway for the reservation already and I inform the hotel that I need to cancel my previous reservation because the free cancellation deadline was approaching, so they should answer as soon as possible. 6. The hotel sends me a revised offer only after I had to cancel my reservation, but funny enough they were referring to the new dates (even if I never asked for prices on those days, I just mentioned to them that i need to cancel my initial reservation because the deadline had arrived). 7. I had not noticed they had changed the dates, and I asked to confirm the booking, immediately the same day and then I get an email that one of the two room I asked for is not available anymore and only a bigger room is available, of course with a higher cost. 8. I get really upset, as it was not my fault that the room was lost. I lost the room because of them! And I even got more upset because the online price of the room was changing to a lower price, much lower than the one they were offering. Conclusion: unable to handle bookings, even if it looks nice, I would not go to that hotel and they need to change the way they deal with customers....
The HOtel is a bit removed from the center of the city but this is not bad considering that the ones in the are often difficult to reach by car. The structure is new and has been recently restored. rooms are average size and bathrooms are spacious with a shower that has a wide 1mtx1mt size. The bed is comfortable and the king size is not made of 2 separate beds that separate during the night when you sleep at the juncture. The restaurant is very good and the staff is exceptionally friendly and professional. The food is top level and there is a welcome snack table that alone is worth the visit The wi.fi is very fast up to 50MB/S which is really strange in a hotel Some suggestions to the extremely good and professional staff and manager/owner (?): 1. Change the shower heads with simpler and water-efficient ones that double tye water pressure 2. A larger TV screen would be a great improvement 3. Why not think about a Lavazza coffee machine in the rooms as well?
A super place to stay if you are exploring Umbria. The rooms are quirky and spotlessly clean. The restaurant specialises in producing the cuisine of the area and the passion shines through. Everything is home made including the delicious jams and cakes at breakfast. It’s a 10 minute hop into Perugia and Assisi, Spello and Spoleto are within easy reach. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely hosts who run a very tight ship.
I picked the hotel because of its location on Piazza Italia and it was absolutely perfect. We were right in the old city with all the local bus stops right outside and an easy walk from the bus station. Our hotel room was stunning, with antique furniture, beautifully decorated and absolutely enormous. Everything was clean and tidy, and the staff were all so friendly and lovely. Breakfast included a huge variety of different dishes. My mum is wheat-intolerant, but they had a whole selection of gluten-free bread and cakes for her, so she had as many options as I did. We had dinner in La Rosetta one evening and the food was delicious and very reasonably priced given the quality and the first-rate service. We couldn't have been happier with the stay and I'll be recommending the hotel to all my friends.
It is rare to find such gracious and unpretentious hospitality. Everything from the grounds, to the food, and the accommodations speaks of the owners great desire that you feel welcomed like long lost family. Truly a memorable stay off the radar of most tourists. We spent five days here making road trips to nearby cities and towns, only to come "home" each evening to our cozy room and excellent cuisine next door.
We were staying at a hotel a few miles outside of Perugia named Relais Dell’Olmo. Since my wife has issues with lots of walking, especially in a hilly environment, I didn’t want to stay in old town Perugia. It was the right choice. Besides being a very nice hotel with free parking, the staff could not have been sweeter or more helpful people. The hotel had a large swimming pool, but it was a bit early in the season for it to be used. We were put in the newer section of the hotel, which was right next to the original building and accessed through a covered walkway. The room was very comfortable with a nice size bathroom. It also had a nice large balcony. With the mild temperatures we had while in Italy, it was great to be able to sit out there after touring during the day. The main building also had a very comfortable lounge area. A large breakfast room was in the new section of the hotel. The breakfast selection was very good and quite tasty. The staff could not have been sweeter or more helpful. We just loved them. Their advice and directions made our stay so much more enjoyable. They also spoke excellent English which we appreciated. If we are ever back in the area, we will definitely return to this most enjoyable hotel.
What a wonderful and unforgettable stay in this historical palazzo with its stunning high ceiling fresco in the breakfast lounge, contemporary designed bathrooms and spacious rooms! Plenty of fresh and tasty options served for breakfast. Hamid, at the reception has been an outstanding host, offering us a warm welcome and plenty of recommendations according to our taste. This was our first time in Perugia with my brother and now we dream of coming back! (in the warm season to enjoy the rooftop and a room with private jacuzzi on the balcony…)
We stayed in this beautiful property for 1 night in April 2019 and found the check in process and amenities to be excellent. We also really appreciated the option of a 35Euro fixed menu dinner, which covered 4 courses and wine). The food was excellent, My only suggestion is that tea and coffee making facilities be included in the bedroom.
The more we read the mixed reviews of this hotel, the more we wanted to stay in it. So glad we did, its location alone is worth the hassle of driving through the twisty and narrow streets of Perugia! We parked in Piazza Partigiani and took the escalators up to Piazza Italia (the journey through the subterranean chambers of Rocca Paolina is surreal). It isn’t much of a hassle if you only carry a tote bag or backpack with your clothes, totally impractical if you have roller cases (also note: the escalators from the carpark go up, but coming down uses mostly stairs). The hotel is perfectly located on via Bonazzi, a quiet street off the main drag of Corso Vannucci. You can’t miss this lovely building covered in ivy vines, it’s so characteristic. We stayed here for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. Our room was on the 4th floor (403/404 – basically half of a set of two rooms sharing a bathroom, no one was in the other room so we basically had the whole place to ourselves, yes it was a quirky arrangement but it worked very well). Our room looked out on to the streets but we were high enough not to hear any street noise, only the bells of the city and the cooing of the pigeons in the rooftops – magical! Speaking of rooftop, we loved going up to the roof terrace to enjoy the surrounding views at different times of day (it’s just up the stairs from our room). My favourite time is early morning watching the light change as the sun rises while I do a spot of yoga and meditation. Our room was very comfortable, pleasant temperature and quiet, we certainly slept well here. Whilst my husband could not work the safe, I did (the female brain wins!). No problems with the lift either, it worked every time – yes, it’s cozy especially for guests of ample proportions plus luggage, one just has to take these niggles as part of the charm of old buildings. Worthy of comment is the reception staff in this hotel, they’re lovely! We were a bit stressed when we arrived after all the driving and they immediately put us at ease with their welcoming smiles and understanding nature. They really are an asset to this hotel. Can’t say the same for the breakfast buffet though – it’s such a disappointment. Weak cappuccinos, mediocre range of fruit, yoghurts, breads and pastries (true, not replenished often enough, filled croissants had artificial fillings, yoghurts only one flavour), cold eggs, chewy muesli and meager amounts of nuts! Serving staff frenetically tidying up, we had breakfasts over 3 days and they never even acknowledged that we were there. Oh well, I guess you can’t expect excellence in everything for the rate we paid. On the whole, it is good value and as stated earlier, in an excellent location, everything that Perugia has to offer is within walking distance. We’d definitely stay here again if we ever return to the city, and we’d ask for our room again!
I booked a reservation on booking, after stressing that I was expecting to find a cleaned room due to a severe allergy to dust. I received a mail by the manager of the structure, which informed me that they would have provided me with a room without moquette . You can imagine how amazed I was after they showed me the room: the best they could offer at the same prime of the plain service. Moreover, we received a discount for the breakfast ( which was delicious, by the way). Highly recommended.
This was an absolute dream staying here. There’s not one area that doesn’t deserve 5 stars. It is just far enough out of the town but close enough too. The staff was PHENOMENAL to say the least, from the moment we checked in. They made us feel so so welcomed and personalized. We stayed in Chiavi suite which I highly recommend. The view is unbeatable. EAT at the restaurant Grandale. That staff to outstanding and the food mouthwatering. We walked around the castle and sat up at the top enjoying the view. Breakfast was included and was better than expected. Everything was kept immaculately clean but kept the castle feel. I recommend sitting by the fire in the evening and having a drink. Also do rent a car to make your stay more accessible. I’m honestly not sure how we would’ve have done it without a car. Pictures do not do this amazing place justice.
This Fine Hotel and Resort 5 star resort collection was simply elegant! We arrived by car and the long entrance with the circular driveway looking at the hotel and views was spectacular. The doorman greeted us promptly and check in was within minutes. Our suite was very large and gorgeous in the Chateau with a lovely bathroom with tub. I had the opportunity in touring the rooms and I would suggest the Junior suite and with spa and above because of the incredible views. The restaurant for dinner. We sat outside both nights and the food was Michelin star quality, even their cheeseburgers. The customer service of the staff was very knowledgeable and warm. They do have group tours stay there. Overall, Umbria's Gem and deserves to be American Express FH&R.
This hotel surprised us very much. When we arived for a stay of 4 nights, our reservation for the superior room was not administrated at the right way. The reception appoliged for that and gave us a for the entire stay the suite. A separate livingroom, separate bedroom and 2 bathrooms. By the way, the employees are very nice, the food and wines in the restaurant are lovely and delicious, the location is very good nearby the minimetro for going to the beautiful city. A GREAT STAY!

Отель уютный. Хорошие впечатления от Четырехместного номера. Просторный и уютный. Стационарные кровати. Номер разделен иваном на 2 зоны. хорошее кондиционирование и вентиляция. Есть чайник. Завтраки скудноваты но в целом выбрать можно: омлет, сосиски, мясная и свиная нарезка, фрукты, салаты, много выпечки. Кофе хороший. Каши нет. Бесплатная автомобильная парковка. Надо учитывать что до центра пешком минут 25. Поэтому можно доехать до парковки на площадь Партизан.

I was with a group of seniors and this hotel is located up a hill and far from downtown Perugia - in fact it is located in the industrial area! We were told there was a heated pool and a Turkish bath. The pool was closed for the season and there were only saunas available at a cost of 10 euros per visit. The food for our group was average to poor. In fact one of our meals was so salty that everyone in our group of 21 sent their meal back! In order to take the bus you had to walk down the hill and go into the shopping center to get a ticket and then walk across the road and down a ways to get the city bus which was at least a 20 minute ride to downtown and extremely bumpy!! If you asked for a coffee or tea during the day you were charged for it! There is nothing around the hotel to do except go to the shopping center which is relatively small. This hotel is not good for seniors due to its location. I noticed that people who came in to eat received better food than the food our group got. The rooms are very basic but were clean. Our bathroom had a small shower stall and I mean small!
This past June I was visiting very dear old friends from my time when I studied art and lived in Milan. Because this was a special evening, my friends took me to one of their favorite restaurants. We sat on the terrace and with our backs to the building, we faced to valley and hills beyond. It about 8PM when we arrived and the sun was beginning to set. The few clouds were beginning to reflect the suns final rays, against the light blue sky. They went from yellow, orange, and peach, to hints of lavender then to purples. The show was beautiful. The thing is once the sun set and the light of Perugia and the region were lit a, perhaps more beautiful show began. Looking across the valley towards the city, there were the cars' headlight winding up and down the hillside on the curvy and sometimes switchback roads. Then there were the houses and a few small villages and finally Perugia perched atop its Umbrian hill, all illumined and in a warm glow.
Excellent location just behind the centre. Perfect for walking. One floor up. no lift but a special chair lift for the disabled. Some free parking right outside. The room was large, clean but spartan. Bathroom worked and was not too small. Plugs were scarce. Very weak wifi. Although in a side street, it could be surprisingly noisy at times.

For the past several years my husband and I have visited Italy during Christmas and New Year, traveling with Italian relatives from Milan. We booked Relais Santa Cecilia over New Years and immediately began to question the choice as the booking itself was a challenge, the manager Carla indicating the "credit card machine" was broken and requiring direct bank transfer of funds. When we arrived, the room itself (the "French" room) was tiny -- not suitable for two adults -- the very uncomfortable bed is really a single bed -- there was not even room to place two suitcases within the room. We asked Carla if there were other rooms available and she was very aggressive and rude, her immediate response was "that's the room you picked". Given it was New Years Eve, we were somewhat stuck, but ended up booking another hotel for two nights during the middle of our stay as this place was too depressing to spend our holidays in. Added issues: the heat was on a timer and it was continually cold; we had to ask for an extra blanket and toilet paper; after four nights in the room they never replaced toiletries; they make a point of indicating they don't change towels for environmental purposes, but then the entire breakfast is made up of packaged pastries wrapped in plastic (not so much as a piece of fruit in sight); there is no lounge area other than a small sofa which sits directly opposite the reception desk. It was overall a very uncomfortable and unwelcoming stay. I wouldn't be writing this review if Carla's attitude had been a bit more hospitable, less aggressive, or had she provided the illusion that she cared about anything other than collecting our money. This place amounts to a glorified hostel.
