We spent one night during our holidays, the hotel has been recently completely renovated, a must if you stay in Bari: it is just next to Teatro Petruzzelli, you can walk to the sea promenade and the shopping area. Valet parking available, good breakfast.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the VOI Oriente The rooms were the cleanest we have seen in Europe and the staff was eager to assist with any questions we had. The location is outstanding with key sites being easily walkable. The breakfast was well stocked and the staff was attentive. I would not hesitate to return

The hotel is very well located, close to the old part of the town, shops and main attractions. The efficient staff turns your stay a nice time. Good internet service, free of charge. Excelent breakfast.

We have just spent two nights here before moving on up the coast to Trani. The hotel is very nice and clean, the staff speak English (my Italian is awful) and the continental breakfast is of a decent standard. The rooms are a good size, fully equipped and have en-suite. The shower is a little cramped for space but powerful... More

We have just stayed for two nights and it is difficult to find anything wrong with this hotel. I can't agree with some of the reviews on here as we had Wifi in out room (3rd floor). If you want to use the wifi you have to ask at the reception and they will generate a specific code based on... More

Comfortable hotel, well located near the old town but not in it. Friendly helpful staff, everyone speaks enough English that there are no communication problems. The rooms are a good size for Italy, with comfortable beds and well equipped, with a wide range of toiletries in the bathrooms, which usually only have a shower - no bath. There are a... More

Conveniently located to historic Bari with nice lobby. The room however was only adequate, and heavily fragranced with some type of air freshener. The gentleman at reception attempted to be helpful but I couldn't say the same of other staff at the front desk. Wifi in lobby only. Would certainly like to revisit Bari but would not stay at Voi...

This hotel is in a great location to be able to walk everywhere. However, rooms on the street are very noisy from traffic, horn honking and foot traffic. In late April the air conditioning was still not on for the season, and the room was uncomfortably warm even though it was cool outside. The wi-fi is only in the lobby... More

Much Better than suspected. Walking distance to almost everything in the old town. We recommend to have some time in the breakfast room. It can bee to many guests enjoying the food at the same time if you start early in the morning.

The location of this hotel is its best feature. The room was comfortable, until the evening, when you want some air to breathe when you sleep. The air is turned off until its much hotter, yet, even though the temperature outside was cool, the room was hot. The windows ca be opened, but Bari is known by locals as a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Oriente goes back to his origins after a long and careful restoration process. It opens up again and reminds through his architecture and decorations the golden age in which it was the most appreciated hotel in Bari. This old hospitality tradition started in the first years of the twentieth century, with businessmen trading between Balkans and Far East with Bari, “PortaD’Oriente”. An elected place for meeting and to discover other world.Since the opening in 1928, Hotel Oriente has hosted the greatest Opera tenors, who played their performances in the near world-famous Teatro Petruzzelli, becoming immediately,the chosen place by these celebrities. The Hotel is located inCorso Cavour, in the heart of Bari Centre. Hotel Oriente still represents the ideal meeting point for businessmen and also for tourists that love going shopping or sightseeing and wander in the narrow streets of the main town in Apulia. Chic and comfortable furniture enriches the atmosphere of each one of the 75 rooms and suites. Decorations are carefully perfected in all details, white play of light and kristal. The rooms have an elegant and determined artistic temperament and offer all the comforts to the guests.A nice surprise is the Roof Garden, that overlooks the whole city of Bari, the dome of Petruzzelli Theater and on the horizon the deep blue sea. A breath-taking panorama, perfect setting fora characteristic breakfast, a wine party at sunset, or for a cosy drink beneath the starry vault of heaven. A unique sensationthat will make unforgettable your stay in Hotel Oriente.The American Bar is opened for whole day and it is the ideal meeting place for friends or a cosy point for a pause. Here you will taste original cocktails.There are also two well-equipped meeting rooms to do your business. Hi-Tech and tradition, in the service of quality ... more   less
