With the windows open you can hear the hustle and bustle of the street and its restaurants. closed, its peaceful and quiet. The continental breakfast was great. Just what we needed and I couldn't...

The hotel was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was great with local focaccia bread. The staff was very helpful. Fabrizio, Elvira, Sarah, and Salvador all wonderful. We decided to extend by 1 day but the hotel managed to do some shuffling and moved us to another room so that we could stay a day longer.

Originally we had planned to stay only one night on our way to the Gargano but we loved both the hotel and the place so much that we decided to stay put for a further two nights. The hotel is immaculate, and the rooms are... More

My wife and I spent two nights at the Giovi' Relais as part of our trip around Puglia. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and well-equipped and our bathroom was of a decent size. The breakfasts served are good but the selection of hot dishes is small. The location is excellent, not far from the old town... More

We stayed here for 1 night only. I would highly recommend it. Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was spotless with every amenity provided for. Breakfast was ok. Location was great. The only fault I can think of is the price, a bit steep!
