The hotel is in good place be awre that he had two blocks one of them is newer and thus the room, we were update to a suite after i complined that the room size etc. was not what i orderd and after the update i reliase that more, there are lots of free parking which is very good to have, the location is good to the old city which is not far away, the beds the bathroom and all services are good, breakfest is very good and i also had dinner which is very good and not expensive.
This hotel is a solid choice for accommodations in Perugia. It’s a good value. The rooms are average but the breakfast is good. Lots of options. Covered parking. The “free” WiFi was so weak it didn’t work and you had to pay if you needed WiFi (like almost all places in Italy.) I think the whole country uses this racket. It would be hard to beat for the price in Perugia.
Nice hotel , the rooms are fine but old architecture . beutifull view from the room Friendly staff .Good shower . good value for your money . The town Perugia is a beutiful town , we arrive October 22 , it was a chocholate Festival , happy and beutifull expirience , a chance to see many local peaple. And eat a lot of chocolate .
For the third and fourth nights of our drive from Spain to Greece in early August, we decided to rest up rather than keep meandering so tried out this hotel on the edge of Perugia’s center. The design and name are due to the original owner’s love of jazz and visually it is everywhere. A business hotel, it was typical of one, quiet and clean, pet friendly, and had its own open, covered garage in the back which was fine for a fairly safe parking space. It had easy access to the center of town, and across the street was an excellent gelato shop…necessary during the Summer!
Rooms in the hotel are of good size and this thematic hotel (jazz, wine and chocolate) has its interesting points. But it is desperately under staffed form reception to the restaurant, and the wait for dinner was interminable. It is used for large groups, and they can easily mistake you for one of the "group members" and send you to a second rate breakfast and mass food restaurant. Worse still, the air condition in all rooms in the hot summer months works at best at 10% capacity. IT has a free parking but you are advised to get a cab to go to historic centre as there is hardly any chance in finding a parking slot.
We discovered Hotel Gio Wine e Jazz in March during a weekend visit to Perugia and returned in August for a 2-week stay. The hotel staff is very nice and helpful, rooms are quite spacious and cleaned every day, the breakfast choice is very generous (the waiters in the breakfast room were particularly nice). We were very satisfied with the services and value received at this hotel. The location is good, there is a large parking (including covered parking area), the internet worked well most of the time (sometimes there were problems with connectivity in the mornings). There is a supermarket and a small restaurant & gelato place conveniently located right next to the hotel. There is a gym (quite outdated - we did not like it), and a pool on the 5th floor (decent size). I particularly liked the hike to the old city center (25 min walk) with about 250 stairs to climb - a bit challenging, but wonderful views and great exercise. I am not particularly a fan of the jazzy decoration of the rooms / reception, but all in all, it was a very comfortable stay and great value for money.
Nice hotel, bit of a strange set being on both sides of the roads connected by an under ground tunnel decorated as a piano keyboard. Quirky. Room okay, beds made everyday and room tidied, no coffee and tea facilities which I think is an Italian thing. Roof top pool small, with very little shade and no food or drinks available up there. But, for what we wanted for the weekend if was fine. They had laid on a shuttle bus to the centre for the Jazz starting at 3pm and finishing at 2.30 in the morning. The mini metro is also just round the corner at Casa Bruciate. We made it from the hotel to the centre in 20 mins and the bus was 30 mins. Great breakfast, no complaints there, very nice staff, very busy and child friendly, lots of families. Lots of lifts, ideal for disabilities.
If the way our stay started here continues, we will only be able to give it 1 star. The 1 star is for most of the staff. We were told, on our reservation, that there was air-conditioning in the rooms but both rooms they showed us were hot and sticky. We are thinking about leaving and losing the full amount (I pre-paid because of the reviews here). Hope i have more positive things to say soon.
We stayed three nights at hotel. Free parking was attractive to us but hotel was a little too far out of town centre for us. The 10 minute walk is a strenuous 20-25 minute walk uphill for most of it but supported by some escalators obviously built because of the gradients involved. The hotel staff were excellent and that was from reception, waitresses, cleaners and maintenance staff. We booked in and found our room to have a malfunctioning safe and when we looked carefully noticed cobwebs on ceiling and bathroom could have been cleaner. Quick call to reception and without any quibble the staff came straight up to our room, agreed with faults and had in their hand a key for another room, which we inspected and accepted. Staff immediately moved our bags for us, not allowing us to help. They were friendly, professional and efficient. The room was standard business type hotel room, nothing extra special but double bed, furniture, bathroom, separate shower, fridge. TV, etc... Breakfast service was buffet style with good selection of meats, cheese, fruit, hot and cold drinks, pastry selection and a special chocolate corner for perugia chocolate. There was also a gluten free section. The waitress was very obliging when my wife sought out soya milk, provided quickly and repeatedly at subsequent breakfasts. We used the rooftop pool which was good to take the heat out of a long day. Sun beds and towels available on rooftop. We used wifi throughout hotel without difficulty. Good hotel but for us sadly just too far out of the centre of town to be able to walk out and just enjoy the hubbub of activity at night in the piazzas.
Quite who designed this hotel we may never know. What I do know, is that their imagination should be boxed and put on show in an exhibition devoted to eccentricity, bafflement and wine. Two main reasons why. The first being the 'keyboard corridor' which runs on the basement level between the two buildings; a strange room with silent sepia repeats of 1930s Jazz on flat screen TVs and several slick sofas opposite. This room allows you to watch 'silent Jazz' whilst every five seconds the experience being blighted by guests on the march to breakfast. The second is the furniture made of wine casks and broken barrels, this is trumped only by the flat pack instructions pinned on the walls as to how to make the 'barrel furniture'. If Willy Wonka moved on from confectionary to chardonnay he'd probably run a gaff like this. Quasi-Wonka-Wine dungeon experience aside, this staff were great, rooms spick and span, breakfast top draw and they even have a miniminimini gym. Thanks Gio. I feel like I got the golden ticket.
