“Great location in the city center”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed there only one night, and found the hotel a little old and dusty. However, it's in the city center, so you can really just walk around and enjoy the narrow streets of Perugia. Don't buy breakfast at the hotel, it's better to have one at a "bar". Ask at the reception for a special permit to park in a street in the nearby (via di porta Marzia), they should give it for free (it's kind of impossible to park your car in Perugia, so remember to ask for it!).

The only positive was the clean sheets.

I chose the hotel because it was written that there is free parking. This is a complete lie!! "Free parking" at the foot of the town and the road is not safe. We lost half a day to find a hotel and parking. In the end we paid 16 euros for parking and saw the city for half an hour, and the town is very beautiful. It's not recommended for traveling by car. The room is extremely small, the bathroom is very old and worn.

Room Tip: It's not recommended for traveling by car

Gentile cliente,

la ringraziamo per la premura con cui si è offerto di recensire l'Hotel Sant'Ercolano. Se ce lo consente però, il suo giudizio in merito al parcheggio andrebbe commentato correttamente specificando alcune importanti omissioni... Prima di tutto, il prezzo del parcheggio ricorda quello della tariffa giornaliera di molti parcheggi custoditi che si trovano in zona, i quali dispongono anche di tariffe orarie più comode per chi è di passaggio o ha poco tempo per visitare Perugia. Questa tipologia di parcheggio esula naturalmente dalla nostra attività di albergatori. In secondo luogo, è vero che esistono parcheggi gratuiti in zona: al momento del check-in diamo sempre al cliente una mappa in omaggio indicandogli dove può parcheggiare, a che prezzo e con quanta disponibilità. Sappiamo quanto possa rivelarsi frustrante la spasmodica ricerca di un parcheggio in una città che non si conosce, specie se come nel suo caso si viene da un paese straniero. Purtroppo non disponiamo di un parcheggio nostro, nel senso di gestione privata; ma il Comune di Perugia ci ha permesso di concedere ai clienti dei posti auto nella vicinissima piazzetta (50m dall'ingresso dell'edificio), previa disponibilità. Detto ciò spero di aver fornito elementi sufficienti a mostrare la validità della nostra attenzione al cliente.
La ringraziamo infinitamente per averci concesso di fornire ai lettori di Tripadvisor delle informazioni utili riguardo l'hotel.
Cordiali saluti,

Il Direttore

The owners and staff are welcoming, nice people. Rooms are clean but small, main complaint was the towels, more like a linen tea towel, not very absorbent..it would be nice if they had a few fluffy towels with which we could dry our hair ! I have seen this elsewhere in Italy, Dont stay here if you are alergic to stairs or have massive suitcases...good location not far from the funicular/ railway. Havng said that, we were happy considering the fair price.

Room Tip: if you are elderly or have mobility problems, ask to not be on the top floor.

Hotel San Ercolano turned out to be a good budget choice.

Despite its central location - hidden in some alley - parking was not a problem.
The friendly staff directed me to a nearby free-parking location. (There are two, one requiring a permit issued by the hotel).

My single room was sufficient for a one-night stay.
It was basic and clean, furnished with (somewhat worn-down) furniture, featuring a comfortable queen-size bed, and with a simple bathroom equipped with a good shower.

For €30 I did not mind that the room was small, that there was no window - at least, the window of the door leading to a small terrace was cardboard-covered - and that it was somewhat noisy when people were passing through the hallway.
Similarly, I did not expect much from the (€5) breakfast, so I was not disappointed.

We will not hesitate to highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Perugia who do not expect extravagant breakfasts and primarily use their room for sleeping/resting: afterall, breakfast to an Italian is not a high priority and you will want to spend your time in the streets, restaurants and bars of the city! For a 2-star hotel, Sant'Ercolano gives you excellent value for your money, boasting a staff that will go to great lengths to accommodate your needs and slight mishaps :-) Ideally situated in the town center, the hotel also saw to our rented car getting adequate lodgings. Don't miss out on Café Sant'Ercolano Bar Sport round the corner, either (great place to enjoy a "spritz" and observe the city life). We will certainly make a point of coming back here!

Room Tip: Room 53 has a great view of the surrounding hills (Assisi) and Perugia itself, room 51 is not bad ei...

The room and bathroom were clean. It was very much a budget hotel but a comfortable stay. The first morning we went out for breakfast and the next morning we had breakfast at the hotel. The breakfast was disappointing but then we realised that it was no different anywhere else.

The hotel is very close to the main piazza's - but you do get fit going up and down the steep steps every day.

Free parking was available in via Marzia, just off via Baglioni. You literally had to mount to kerb to go into the street so we missed it the first few times and had to drive around the city again. The parking spaces are limited but when you check into the hotel if you give your details in they give you a piece of paper to put in your window.

The only bad point was the creaky bed springs on one side but there was enough room on the other side of the bed for 2 people anyway!

We stayed in another budget accommodation out of the centre and ended up paying 30 euros in taxis and had to put up with pretty unhelpful staff. It was a mistake.

We moved to Sant Ercolano and the staff were amazingly helpful, it was so very central, right by the minimetro, close to museums, restaurants, bars, late night cafes... everything you could need.

The decor is not so modern but it is not a problem and rooms were clean.

I wish we had gone there straight away.

There was also free WIFI.
