We stayed in the hotel for two nights. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast which was included with price of room was excellent. Many choices of food. Bed was firm and comfortable. My single room was smallish yet sufficient. Good location, we explored on foot. Safe area.

Modern hotel really well situated with a great location close to the old town (10 minutes walk) and to the shopping areas of the new town. Maybe 15 minute walk to the train station. Bright and airy reception (if a little soulless and empty) with really helpful staff. The rooms and bathroom well decorated and spacious – also very quiet,... More

We booked a suite because we were staying in Bari for an extended period of time to take day trips to the sites in the region. The suite was clean and well-appointed (bathrobes and slippers), the bed large and comfortable, and each area has its own dedicated thermostat. The staff was extremely helpful with everyone on board able to speak... More

Recently I have been staying in Bari with a group of American cyclists. Our tour organizer had opted for this hotel because of the 'great location'. Which is absolutely true. Near the 'Lungomare', near the 'centro storico' and just next to the theatre. But the best thing is the service level: the breakfast is wonderfully complete and the director, Mrs.... More

We were glad we chose the Oriente in Bari, it is in the middle of everything that is happening in the city. It is very close to the old town, where there is so much to see,and many resturants and cafes. The shopping is amazing with a good amount of all type of fashion shops. The hotel is very welcoming...

The location is great for sightseeing on foot. However, parking is an issue here. On the holiday websites it states that 'It provides free parking nearby'. This is not the case. You can park in the car park outside for 1 Euro p.h. from 8.30 a.m. to 8.30. p.m. (free for the rest of the day) but there is usually... More

The Oriente is a lovely, newly renovated hotel in the middle of Bari, only a few blocks from both the beach and from the main squares of Bari. The rooms were very comfortable - modern, crisp, and clean. A/C took a while to start working. The breakfast buffet was nice and served in a comfortable and modern room.

This is a beautiful hotel right in the middle of town. Shopping galore right outside your door, as well as lots of historical and tourist attractions within close walking distance. The room was beautiful, with one noticeable annoyance. It seems when you take the key out of the slot it rests in the air conditioning is turned off (as is... More

Very nice hotel with a good location. Breakfast was very good with a wide range of choice. Rooms were comfortable and a good size with a nice bathroom. We had two rooms and unfortunately in one of these the hot water and air conditioning were not working. Although when we reported this we were offered the use of another room.

This hotel is very conveniently located. The lobby is bright and clean, room cleanliness is superb too. Free breakfast was great. And all the staff was very helpful. I'll definitely stay again at this hotel if I ever come back to Bari.

Hotel Oriente goes back to his origins after a long and careful restoration process.

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.
