even the Grimm brothers could have conceived a building
designed like a giant chocolate bar, with each floor named
after a type of chocolate – bitter, milk and Gianduia… The
Etruscan Chocohotel, close to the Perugia railway
station, is a happy combination of fantasy and comfort.
Laid out over three floors, Piano al Latte, Piano Gianduia and
Piano Fondente, the Etruscan Chocohotel in Perugia
94 comfortable rooms, each equipped with TV, minibar, telephone,
hairdryer and air conditioning. All rooms are painted with
Etruscan style frescoes and each has its own amusing ‘choco-desk’.
The top floor of the Etruscan Chocohotel commands fine views
from its panoramic terrace, where
there is also a swimming pool for guests to relax or just take the
sun. Subject to prior booking, the terrace of the Etruscan Chocohotel can function as the
ideal venue for welcome cocktails, drinks, buffets, afternoon or
evening meetings and open air dining.
The ground floor of the hotel features a richly-stocked chocostore
selling hand made and industrially-produced chocolates from all over
the world (Domori, De Bondt, Mannori, de Castro, Amedei, Rovira,
Cuba, Gobino, Antica Dolciaria, Dolphin ,Valrhona, Catinari, Weiss,
Maide, etc etc etc...) as well as gadgets, books, posters, tasting
cups and more. Guests can indulge themselves here on temptations
such as the Kramsky chocolate wrappers, Eric Rovira’s imaginative
chocolate eggs, chocolate objets made by Maide, taste unusual
varieties of hot chocolate or try the freshly-made pralines.
The elegant restaurant of the Etruscan Chocohotel serves a variety
of Umbrian traditional dishes as well as international cuisine and, for real chocoholics, a menu from starters to dessert made entirely
with chocolate as the main ingredient. The restaurant is also able
to cater for working lunches, banquets and tailored menus to best
suit your needs.
The restaurant’s two rooms, the Sala della Caccia e della Pesca and
the Sala del Cippo Etrusco can easily seat up to 250 people and are
ideal for official lunches and banquets, as well as private dining.
The Etruscan Chocohotel also has a garage for parking up to
