A group of buildings behind the cathedral transformed into a hotel, a delicate balance between maintaining the historical architectural elements and the comfort of the visitor has been maintained. Resolutely modern furnishings in a centuries-old context, the view of the surrounding plain and the Adriatic is spectacular. The staff was particularly agreeable and helpful and we had no reason to... More

The check-in experience was not terrific, we arrived just after the 3 pm check-in time and our room was not ready. They did however serve us a bottle of Prosecco and snacks while we waited until about 4;30 pm for our rooms to be ready. The suite we had was lovely but had some serious flaws. The bed was on...

A truly lovely hotel- delicious restaurant whose chef is very creative- our suite is beautiful- apparently ours is the only one that is not a duplex- would recommend this room, number one, rather than duplex since those have bathroom and bedroom on separate floors. Suite is expansive, no deal forgotten. Free wifi only in room and tv service in room... More

Let's start with the food first - amazing, you can feel the study and research behind each plates, creative/innovative, daring in its coupling of flavours (grilled pata negra with..

Ostuni is very close to Brindisi Airport and easy to find. High on top of a hill. La Sommita Relais is on the highest point. So when you come into town it's easy to find it. If you arrange it, they come in a little golf cart to meet you and take you and your baggage up to the hotel... More

This charming little hotel is located in the picturesque old city of Ostuni. The rooms are all different and each have their own character. I stayed in a suite with a balcony that had a view over the countryside. Even if you do not get into a room with a balcony, there are plenty of furnished terraces in the hotel.... More

La Sommita is really special, it is located right next to the cathedral with amazing views over the local region all the way to the coast. We were met in Piazza Liberta and followed the hotel's Mini to the parking facility, we then jumped into the Mini with our suitcases and were transported through the winding streets of Ostuni. The...

Lovely hotel in the best location in town, with a lovely restaurant (pricey) They forgot to clean the room one day (which wasn't a big deal) but after mentioning it we got a free bottle of wine. Everyone happy!
