Hotel Sina Brufani – 5 Stars
Perched on a hilltop in the historical centre of Perugia, the SINA Brufani Palace Hotel offers a unique and exclusive atmosphere standing up for its refined elegance that reflects its tradition of hospitality.
The SINA Brufani Palace is located in the green heart of Umbria, in a unique position in the old centre of Perugia, and is a symbol of exclusivity. The charming old cities of Spello, Assisi, Todi and Orvieto are all within a few kilometres of Perugia.When Giacomo Brufani opened the hotel in 1884 it immediately shot to fame, hosting some of the world’s most famous public figures and European aristocracy, including Charlie Chaplin, the British Queen Mother and Prince Alberto of Monaco as well as celebrities from the worlds of art and show business such as Antony Hopkins, Bruce Springsteen and more. The SINA Brufani Palace’s 94 rooms and suites have a unique atmosphere thanks to the period furnishings, frescoes, precious fabrics and white marbles.The Penthouses are particularly atmospheric with their beamed ceilings and period furniture.
All rooms have spectacular views of the valleys of the Umbria region or over the roofs of the Medieval city.
The roomy frescoed lounges, large stone fireplaces, antique chandeliers and wooden floors, the intimate and cozy public areas, and the way elegance blends with tradition evoke an atmosphere of the past. From the hotel’s balconies, which look out over a sheer drop, there are wonderful views of Umbria’s rolling countryside.
