We stayed here as part of a Great Rail Journey tour. On arrival we had a welcome party at the door and room keys were quickly distributed (doesn't happen in too many hotels). Room plans show most rooms were the same as ours - a good size and reasonably well equipped. The weather was quite warm during our stay (typically... More

Maybe it's this part of the world, maybe organization issues but entering a dining room for breakfast and finding empty buffet is not what a customer is waiting for. Wifi is on and off ( review sent over 3G ) I think this hotel has potential, with little attention it can be improved. The room is ok, have everything reasonable.

Stayed here while travelling with Great Train Journeys. Good base for the town and sightseeing. Service in the restaurant was patchy and seemed under staffed. The breakfast Buffett at times was poor and they were very slow at replenishing it. The rooms need updating and the bathrooms were very tired. The bath in our room was very warn and rough.

We stayed here for several nights in April as part of a tour of Puglia, and our arrival at this Hotel coincided with our Wedding Anniversary. Having contacted the Hotel by email and requesting flowers in the room I was amazed when, upon arrival not only the flowers but also a bottle of Champagne awaited us in our room. We... More

The hotel is located close to downtown, 300 hundred meters walking. The hall is large and cozy, the style is strongly influenced by the time of fabrication, which should be some 30 years ago or so. This vintage flavor unfortunately turns in a quite "old" aspect when entering in the room, mine was simply huge but with furniture that need... More

I stayed here many times during the year I spent there, and I cannot praise the staff enough. They were simply wonderful. So kind and helpful, always attentive to my needs. A lovely hotel with lovely staff. Thank you. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. They are particularly good with solo guests.

In Italy on business. This was my meeting hotel. I requested and they arranged pick from Brindisi Airport for 50 euro. It was a 25-30 minute ride on Monday in the middle of the day to the hotel. When I walked in, first impression was well kept 1980's vintage hotel. Check in was quick. Desk clerks spoke broken english. Better... More

Just average. Stayed there for one night with a group on an organized trip. Rooms were OK, as a place to spend the one night. Service and breakfest were poor. Cannot comment about values, since I do not know room price.

This hotel is a city hotel at all, you musn't think here as a holiday hotel. Rooms were very wide, clean. The problem was very old and noisy air conditioner, the rest was very ok. Breakfast was rich. The main problem was despite they say that they have a free parking area, we couldn't use their carpark. They said we... More
