First of all i would like to present myself I am a GM in a hotel in Perugia Italy. I'm really disappointing with reception employee at the day of checking out. I ask a taxi to reach the airport, I asked a REGULAR taxi as I know that there's a fix cost of 30,00 euros. They call a ´´blu car´´ I complain with that but I was already late so I couldn't cancelled. At the airport I've been charged of 42,00 euros. Is not for the 12,00 more as i will not become more rich or poor!! but has been for the employer attitude try to convince me that the taxi they called was a regular one!!! I can accept any defaillance when is done in good faith, but not not the dishonesty!!! I' ll never reccomend this hotel.

even though the hotel is situated next to a major urban highway, the noise level in the room was minimal (it was difficult to answer your question about noise level: it was minimal, and I didn't really know if you wanted me to say: noise level was high (it wasn't) or low, so you might want to reformulate your question about noise. It was a great place to stay.

nothing. Close to the Hauptbahnhof, wonderful breakfast buffet, very clean.

Good place, good staff, good breakfast.

I have asked nonsmoking room, but there was strong smoking smell we cannot remove by fresh air from the window. Quite noisy - probably you cannot sleep with window opened.
