Very good B&B. We have nice time then stay in there. The best breakfast, nice rooms and service. I want come back in Il Griffone again. A very good administration. Many thanks for Concetta la Barbera, noble woman!

Like other reviewers, we had booked into another property, Al Borgo, which was completely closed up - a disconcerting start. This is simple B&B. Bed was very comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Excellent and free wifi. Breakfast was really good including fresh fruit and some cooked meat and cheese. Staff were very friendly but spoke no English - which... More

A very good team of employees and very good quality/price ratio. The location is very close to the center of Gioia del Colle, and the breakfast is very consistent. The rooms are clean and the atmosphere is familial and friendly.

The owner of this B & B also owns Al Borgo Bed & Breakfast. Our reservation was at Al Borgo B & B. When we arrived the doors were locked and no one answered when we knocked. We asked a gentleman in a store on the next block for assistance. He didn't speak English but led us down the street... More

I've stayed in Il Grifone. It has a perfect place in the downtown. 50 mt away from the main square. As it was new restorated all the rooms and places in the hotel is in perfect situation. The receptionist who stays the whole day very kind and tolerant and the receptionist who stays whole night and prepares the breakfast (... More

I recently returned from Puglia and stayed at Il Grifone B&B in Gioia del Colle. It is a well-run B&B in a great location two blocks from the center square. The staff goes out of their way to see that you are comfortable. We loved Marcello who was there to greet us when we arrived and provided breakfast each morning... More

Recently I stayed at Il Grifone with 7 other friends as part of Angelo Coluccia's excellent Experience Puglia Tour. This charming, unpretentious B and B felt like home right from the start. The owner, Concetta, speaks very good English and was extremely helpful when we met her by chance one night in town. She personally escorted us to an excellent... More

I stayed in room C for 6 nights at the end of May 2011. this little friendly B&B is fantastic in every way. It is right down the street from the town's main square, right across from both a nice little food market and a fruit/veggie market. The town's sights, best restaurants, and anything else you might need are all... More

Il Grifone is a hidden jewel on the main street of the small town of Gioia del Colle about half way between the two UNESCO World Heritage towns of Alberobello and Matera. This B and B and its new sister B and B, Al Borgo are perfect stops for anyone touring this region of Puglia. Under the watchful eye of... More

I was booked into Il Grifone by Angelo Coluccia, my guide from Experience Puglia. I had a beautifully appointed room on the top floor of a refurbished house just steps away from the main square. The Continental breakfast comprised a variety of sweet baked goodies none of which I could eat as I am diabetic. I was hugely appreciative, therefore,... More
