An average hotel in Taranto. The rooms are big, the breakfast is below average, the restaurant on the roof of the hotel is amazing and a visit to this should be done even if you are not a guest at the hotel. A very good view of "Taranto skyline" from this point. The hotel itself is located in the "old... More

Nice rooms and nice restaurant on a terrace with a view. Very friendly staff. I can certainly recommend this hotel and a visit to the old town and to the remarkable newly restored Archeoligical museum which was one of the reasons we came here.

This hotel looks and feels like it's waiting for the rest of its neighbourhood to catch up with it.... In fact it when I was there it seemed like the only piece of its area old Taranto to have received any love and attention in recent times..... Which is sad for the city, but makes the hotel even more of... More

Not the easiest to find on my way in using the GPS - a much easier way I discovered the next morning while walking around. The hotel is situated in the old section of town but is exceptionally well maintained and in good condition. The room was smallish but very comfortable and very clean. Air and heat worked fine and...

We recently stayed in the Hotel Akropolis one night and wish we had stayed longer! It is located in the oldest part of Taranto that was an important port of Magna Grecia. The owner of the hotel was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us a tour of the layers of history that were uncovered during the hotel’s restoration. Many... More

We stumbled upon this hotel relatively late in the evening and we hoped they had room as we had no reservations. The staff member who helped us (a young woman whose name escapes me) was incredibly helpful and welcoming. She helped us park our car, which was no easy feat in the historic centre of Taranto. The next day, she... More

The Hotel is an exception as it is nicely restored, with perfectly equipped rooms with all amenities and top security.It is an old Palazzo and while excavating the two story cellar old remains of the greek and roman times have been found. The hotel has... More

We've stayed only one night, but should have been more. The staff is extra friendly, the restaurant on top is delightful and very tasty. The view from the bar is real a 360, both the "small" and "big" seas are there, just an armlength from the Cathedral's dome. Wonderful with a cocktail :-) It has a very nice restaurant in... More

We were a bit worried as we arrived in Taranto as all the buildings were very run down and old. When we found the hotel we were happily surpised. It was a beautiful small hotel with only a few rooms. Across the bridge is new Taranto which is very nice and the old part does have some charm with the... More

This hotel is a wonderful oasis in the "old historic area" of Taranto. The hotel has been supberbly restored and you have a sense of the ancient origins that lie beneath the modern touches. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. We had a glorious dinner in the open air restaurant and all the courses were absolutely delicious.... More
