“All the comforts of home close to the center of Perugia.”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

This was a very comfortable place to stay in the lovely town of Perugia. Andrea, the owner, picked us up at the train station and made sure that we had everything that we needed. The kitchen was even stocked with coffee, tea, eggs, cereal, milk, crackers, cookies and fresh fruit! The apartment is very quiet as it is not right in the center of town, but there is a short walk with escalators to get to the center. It is obvious that Andrea takes great pride in this apartment and truly wants people to be happy and comfortable there. We really enjoyed our stay here in Perugia and wish we could have stayed longer.

Liked least: It was a bit of a walk to the center, but the escalators helped.

“A delightful apartment in Perugia.”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is a delightful apartment with lots of space for two people and a private garden for siesta time. We stayed eleven nights and loved every minute.

Andrea met us at the airport and welcomed us to his home city. His love of Perugia was soon shared by us.

Perugia is a delightful and unusual city full of lovely places to eat. The first of five escalators starts nearby the apartment, and it takes only ten minutes from the apartment to the main square. Assisi, Lake Trasimeno, and Gubbio are all accessible via bus from the bus station which is only five minutes walk from the apartment..

There was no need to rush to the shops as all the essentials, and more, were there. The single rose on the dining table added the final touch.

My two grown children and I spent only two nights in the apartment but we would have stayed longer if we could. Alessandro met us, showed us this sweet apartment, and then helped us find free parking and made excellent recommendations on where to eat, etc. Since he and his family live in the building, he even invited us to visit if we wanted.

The apartment kitchen was well equipped with all the staples one would need plus coffee, milk, pasta, eggs, etc. The pull out bed in the living room was comfortable and easy enough to handle. The main bedroom was attractive and comfortable. The bathroom was perfectly adequate and more,considering the view of the town from the shower!

A comfortable apartment and the owner was helpful and welcoming. Very convenient for the escalator to the centro storico, bus station, local rail station and a supermarket which are all within a few hundred yards. We would certainly go back there.

“A Pleasant Way To Experience Perugia”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We are veteran American travelers who were visiting Perugia for the fourth time. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable for two persons. The appliances and amenities all functioned well. The small garden area allows for private outdoor relaxing. Andrea made us feel very welcome and he provided all the help we needed. The building is located on the south outskirts of the historic center of Perugia. Getting to the center requires some uphill walking and taking several elevators through the interesting maze of arches and ramps supporting the city. It takes about 10 minutes to reach Corso Vannucci. There is no private parking, but Andrea provided a pass which allowed for free parking in the public garage about 200 meters up the street. Via Cacciatori is not easy to access by car because it is one-way and requires making an unsigned loop to get there. We had to ask a taxi driver for directions. All-in-all it was a very pleasant and worthwhile stay.

Dear Ellen and Robert,
thank you very much for your review: we were happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Grandma Jenny apartment. So far we've always had guests coming by public transport, but I think that it may be very useful to add to our webpage some more indications to reach the apartment by car. We'll do this soon and thank you very much for highlighting this aspect. Hope you'll consider Grandma Jenny for your next visit to Perugia!
Best wishes
Andrea

“The best holiday apartment we so far have stayed in”

person found this review helpful

For us, a couple in our sixties who love city exploring by walking, and to find lodgings with more feeling than ordinary hotelrooms, the apartment turned out ideal. Location quite near the historic city but well below historic city price level mattered, as well as the location close to public transports. And furthermore, the very nice landlord family made our experience of Perugia even better.

“Excellent choice of apartment”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My sister and I stayed in the apartment as we wanted to visit surrounding hill towns as well as Perugia. We could not have made a better choice. Andrea, the owner, made us very welcome. He met us at the bus station and showed us where the supermarket etc. was before showing us to the apartment. The apt was perfect for us. Everything was very clean and Andrea had left us enough food to last us a few days. There was a lovely bottle of wine and a fresh rose in a vase - a lovely touch. The apartment is only minutes away from the bus station and from the escalators which go up into the centre of Perugia. Having the outside space was wonderful as it was very warm some days. Everything we needed was provided and I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. Thanks, Andrea, and hopefully we will return.
