We very much liked this hotel, and Perugia - we expect to return at some point while we would give much of the rest of Italy [sorry], especially Rome, a pass. We have recommended that our friends the Canadian chocolatiers give it a try asap.
When we asked for restaurant advice the manager suggested the hotel itself - fair enough. Later, we asked a young lady working elsewhere in the hotel where she would go to eat and she sent us 100 metres up the road to a pizzeria / taverna [go out the front door, turn left, cross to the other side of the road at the fairly major intersection, go in and enjoy!!] where we had one of the best mealsof the three weeks / four countries trip.
Booked hotel for girls trip to Umbria Jazz festival 2013, nice location but hotel shuttle does not provide service to center of town you have to take taxis which can get pricey or the bus which can be slow if you are on a schedule.
Wonderful well designed spacious hilltop country retreat complete with spa and magnificent views over Perugia, Asisi and the surrounding vinyards and olive groves. Car (ideally with GPS) is essential for access.
We stayed in a quiet period just before Christmas in the snow and ice but the hotel and welcome was warm and friendly. Our room looked out over the twinkling lights of Perugia, 5km away. The room was tastefully decorated in a modern style that reflected the rustic history of this area.
The breakfast buffet was truly a feast fit for a King. One of the best we have ever seen in many, many years of travelling. Even though the hotel was quiet due to the off season there seemed to enough food for 100 people!
If you are touring by car around Italy, this is a wonderful stop in between Rome and Siena/Florence and is well worth the detour off the main roads.
We arrived late in the evening at Hotel Ilgo by taxi. As we were driving there, through the dark and the fog, it was hard to tell exactly where we were. The hotel is at the bottom of a hill and we thought we had arrived at a location far from the historic center of Perugia. When we woke up the next morning and looked out of our window, we looked up at the histori area above us. With the transportation provided by the hotel, the center was only minutes from the hotel. In fact, after exploring historic Perugia, we returned by bus and walked down to the hotel without any problem at all. Great5 location, great price and great staff.
