I'd like to start of by saying that as a Solo Traveler driving around Europe and Italy this summer the number one complaint of mine is Slow or Non-Existent WiFi. I have to say the this hotel has the fastest WiFi so far and FREE. The location was a bit difficult to find but the Hotel and the Location is... More

This was at best a 2 star hotel. Generally clean but during our 9 day stay it was apparent that the vast majority of guests were businessmen working in the heavy industries - huge oil finery, Europe's biggest steel works, 2 huge cement works etc. all right next to hotel! Learnt that Taranto is also europe's most heavily polluted city!... More

This is a very nice hotel for business and relaxing. It is a bit out of the way from other areas and restaurants. The restaurant seemed to have a limited menu for guest and workers. The pool is nice and you can walk down the beach a long way.

We were travelling back home from the south and stopped for one night in Taranto, on the seaside. The hotel is very comfortable and with a good size pool, from your small balcony you can enjoy a fantastic view. There is attention in details. The owner, Manager, is taking care himself of the guests and making sure that the they... More

Stayed there 1 night which was 1 night too many! Minor complaints no real hot only tepid water and the room would not heat up to a comfortable temperature. The clerk was somewhat abrupt and dismissive. Major complaint is the dining room. It's difficult to find a bad restaurant in Italy but this is definitely one of them. We waited... More

The hotel is very well looked after, you can tell they take great pride in their establishment as it is much nicer than your average Best Western. The staff were a little hot and cold, some days very helpful, other days almost dismissive. The best feature is the pool which is lovely, especially compared to the surrounding beach which is...
