We stayed here as a family on our way down to southern Puglia. When we arrived at the hotel our expectations were high as the location is fantastic in a breathtaking hill town with fantastic views over the area. Things went steadily downhill from then on. We were shown to our rooms, by a delightful receptionist, but we noticed at... More

An awesome and calm place to relax. Good located in the old part of town. Nice pool area, comfortable and big rooms (our was two-storeyed), fantastic and varied breakfast. If you are travelling by car, you have to leave the car in a parking outside of ostuni. But there is a shuttle from the hotel, who will pick you up... More

We recently stayed at La Sommita on the final night of a 7 day road trip around the Salento peninsula. Ostuni is easily one of the most beautiful towns we saw on the trip - a higgledy piggledy assembly of pure white buildings on a hill, surrounded by miles of olive groves. When we arrived in the town we tried... More

My stay at La Sommita was superb! The architecture is breathtaking, the staff were very attentive, helpful and generally just lovely. I had a slight problem with accessing the Internet using WiFi but besides that everything was perfect. It's also very centrally located and although the town is a bit of a maze, it's not so difficult to find your... More

Difficult to find, but well worth looking for. A stunning, small hotel, located at the top of the hill close to the cathedral. Well appointed rooms, recreation areas and spotlessly clean. Attentive staff at all levels, and excellent breakfast. Dinner very nicely laid out in the garden, but can be very pricey and somewhat formal. A fabulous place to stay... More

Recently we spent 3 nights at La Sommita. Everything about it was wonderful. The reception staff, Vito et al were always friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Our room was spacious and very nice. Wished we had reserved a sea view room but have no complaints about our room. The bathroom was particularily nice, very spacious... More

Our one night stay at La Sommita was simply too short - we would have loved to stay longer ar this gem literally at the top of the city! When booking, I had asked for a room with a view. When checking in, we were informed that such a room wasn't available, but instead, they upgraded us to a suite... More

We are in the second of three nights stay and could not be happier! We were "wow'ed" by our standard room in this stunning hotel, I can only imagine how fantastic the suites are!

Algiers is sometimes called "the white city". And so is Lisbon. So is Ostuni too, at the utmost southern tip of Italy's heel. A glazed cake with a pervading sense of harmony. Arches and vaults, stairs and terraces, volumes and proportions : and "basta". Enough. No need to fill anything up. La Sommità got it. A relais more than a... More
