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

It is a shame to write a negative review of this hotel, just because the people were so nice to us! But, it is what it is. First of all, if you are a woman traveling alone, this is not a place for you. The area is not good, full of unoccupied buildings and during our walk to the nearest... More

This is a fantastic little find. Dont be put off by the dim lane and unimpressive entry. This hotel was a highlight - beautifully clean with a divine fifth floor rooftop open retaurant overlooking all of Taranto and a cocktail bar as well to watch the sunset. Walk down the winding back lanes to get to the city (10 minutes).... More

This is a great hotel - really friendly people, lovely decoration, nice atmosphere. The problem raised by other reviewers is a genuine problem, however - we decided to walk to a restaurant in the evening, and the streets around it are either choked with traffic or dingy and dirty, depending on which way you go. Having said that, there is... More

Visiting Taranto we found this place on the web, and loved it! It is a former palace of the city center (central island), which has been renovated while keeping architectural elements and style. It is located in a very tiny street, with only a narrow one-way street to access the hotel parking space. We had the impression that except us... More

My wife and I had the surprising pleasure of staying at the Akropolis this past month. Although the hotel is in an area of Taranto that has been in decline, the hotel is new, spotless, comfortable with all amenities. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and attentive. I cannot say enough good things about the owner, who personally greeted... More
