Excellent and comfortable central base for exploring the region of Umbria. {3 stars}

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days in Umbria, and the Hotel Poledrini was the ideal home base for exploring the region.

The hotel is extremely comfortable, if not especially charming or luxurious. The rooms were comfortable and immaculate. Even the single room had a king sized (2 singles put together) bed.

Amenities included a hairdryer, phone, small tv, desk with deep drawers, and a very large closet. The bathroom had the best shower and towels we have ever experienced in Europe.

The breakfast (included) was excellent, including yogurt, cereals, juices, fruit, pastries, croissants and rolls, and meats and cheeses. I wouldn't particularly recommend the restaurant, but there are so many fine nearby restaurants that it is not a concern.

The hotel's location is ideal for both within Foligno and as a home base for exploring Umbria. It is just down the street from the train station. It is accessible by car but also abuts the pedestrian medieval historic center. So joining in the evening passagiata was a breeze.

I rate the service a 3 (out of 5) only because there wasn't really any except fine housekeeping. The staff was friendly, but no real services were provided. Which was fine with us. We don't need luggage carried or room service.

It is a very comfortable place to stay and useful as a place to explore both Foligno and the entire Umbrian region. But I wouldn't call it a destination of its own. Except to sleep, we never really spent much time there.

Finally, the parking garage is an experience all by itself with its iron gates and funky automatic opening. But it is secure and included in the rate and is much easier than the seldom available off street parking.
