During the second half of the 18th-century, the ‘post office’ entrusted with the collection and transportation of people and documents, was situated in the famous Marchese Palace. Within a short time, the building became the Locanda della Posta, the only hotel in the city of Perugia. Its noble origins ensured it quickly became regarded as the highest expression of Perugian hospitality. Famous personalities of the time, when stopping over in the city, always stayed at the Locanda. In 1786, the hotel was host to the poets Heinse and Goethe, in 1802 to the philosopher Humboldt, in 1824 to Frederick II of Prussia and in 1833 to the author Andersen. Of course much has changed since then and the 3-story hotel and its 19 elegant guest rooms has recently been completely renovated. But the ‘old world’ charm, the exclusivity, and the uniqueness of the Locanda della Posta remain. This pet-friendly hotel offers free parking and free wireless Internet access.
The location of the hotel right in the centre of Perugia was excellent for our city trip and access to local shops, bars and restaurants
There was no bar or snacks facility in the public rooms of the hotel, or at least none were advertised.
It was comfortable and extremely handy for Corso Vanucci
Dull place. No atmosphere. Staff not very friendly. The buffet breakfast was cancelled on the first morinng so we had to have room service ineptly served with cold coffee, they forgot to bring sugar and knives
Excellent location right on the main street. Very friendly and helpful staff. Free internet in room. Nothing to complain about.
Nice, pleasant, modern and yet a historical place
Small hotel lift and some problems with parking but the latter is a problem of the city anywhere in the centre
The hotel is very well situated, right in the art of historic Perugia.
