Historical Traveler Reviews Sangallo Palace Hotel Perugia
Great Hotel but No Service
This hotel was about 5~7 min. walk from Piazza Novembre which is the center of the town up on the top of the mountain. The single room was small but clean with modern bathroom with shower stool.
The drain in the shower was not working well though...
The breakfast was good with many kinds of bread, assorted meats, cheese, cereals, boiled eggs....etc.
The only complaint that I had was that the hotel doesn't provide any iron/iron board and no laundry service on holidays. Therefore, if you are a business traveler who arrives on holiday, good luck!!
very good hotel, good location.
Poor breakfast, but maybe it is due to off season.
My family loved this hotel. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were clean and modern, with great showers-YES! It was very close to the downtown main street and had a good breakfast. We would definitely stay here again!
Nice and great for families
Our family of four (2 young boys) stayed at Hotel Sangallo Palace for a week in late March to early April. The hotel is very nice with sizable rooms. We booked a family suite special with two adjoining rooms and were very pleased. The rooms are fully equipped with all amenities (a microwave oven would have made the room complete for our family). The one negative, due to allergy and asthma concerns, is that there is a strong smoke odor when entering the hallways since the hotel does not designate nonsmoking floors. The locatioin is perfect for walking throughout the beautiful walled city of Perugia and also a great location for taking trips to many other cities in Umbria or Tuscany - Cortona and Siena, my wife;s favorites, are 1-1.5 hours drive.
Erverything was excellent
I liked this hotel very much. Our room was enormous, the breakfast was impressive. Sangallo is a charming place to stay as a base to visit Perugia and Umbria.
The hotel is perfectly situated among monuments and tourist attractions. Excellent breakfast and comfort. Hi-tech room (e.g. internet-tv in room), very quite, charming at the same time. I will suggest Sangallo Palace to my friends.

We are buggered, After numerous hot days and late nights with large and numerous courses followed up with traipsing through cathedrals and narrow winding cobblestone streets has taken it's toll on this athletic couple. As previously mentioned in our very witty update we went to Spello for a night at a truffle restaurant. As usual it was four huge …
... much prettier than Clare) founded the Poor Clare sisters (we have a small group of them in Delray Beach). Her body is intact in a glass tomb in the church. St Francis' body is in his church but you can't see him (he is in a metal box protected because in the past, people wanted to get relics of his body. Interestingly enough he was baptized Giovanni and then changed his name to Francis when he gave up all his worldly goods to follow the church. He founded ...
... all sorts of truffle products , but I realised that I would not be able to fool those cute beagle "sniffer" dogs at Australian customs.
So..... We settled for lunch of fresh tagliatelle laced with truffle oil and with white summer truffle shaved on top - Bellissimo !!
Hope you enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed the truffles ....... R&N ...
... Assissi. Of course the home of St Francis of Assissi the town is lovely perched atop the mountain But the main attraction is the Upper and Lower cathedrals built for him that house his tomb. Seems they built a gorgeous gothic church but had more funds so built another Romanesque style one on top of it! Lots of priests and monks around ...
... train to the Assisi station, then a bus where we disembarked at the edge of town because the bus driver had picked up so many passengers we were squeezed in like sardines and it was quite uncomfortable. Phil read that Assisi has about 4 million tourists a year, and I could believe that as we walked the narrow streets, passing souvenir shop after souvenir shop. And cafes and osterios and ristorantes. You would never die of starvation here, nor want for a crucifix or a set ...
