After a long delayed train journey, this hotel was a lovely surprise. A little out of the way if you are travelling from Perugia station, so probably wise to take a taxi. The building looks very plain from the outside, but as soon as you walk in, it is a quirky assortment of jazz-related items, such as vinyl records, pianos and everything music.
Check-in was friendly and quick. It was later at night, so a kind gentleman quickly arranged our room and took our particulars so we could relax. He was also good at helping us purchase a bottle of wine for the room, and opened the wine, providing glasses.
The room was lovely, quirky and fun. Jazz themed, it had a CD player on the wall, huge comfy bed and whirlpool bath. The room was spacious, with a good big TV. The only downsides to the room were the dated curtains, and the headboard was uncomfortable with large dominos hanging from a metal rail.
The bathroom was good, however the shower was not wall mounted, and there was no shower screen, which resulted in a soaking wet bathroom if you tried to shower yourself. However, the quirk if the whirlpool bath was great.
Breakfast was lovely. Large choice, with coffee, tea, pastries, biscuits, cakes, meat, toast, etc. Massive dining room was jazz themed. The only let down was that coffee was available to order, but staff didn't offer this, and talked amongst themselves instead of paying attention to guests.
The day staff weren't quite as friendly as night, but overall great stay.
