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! Absolutely perfect location with gorgeous views and the easiest access to local restaurants and shops. A true old-Ostuni feel with the white walls and cave feel... More

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

I stayed at the Sommita from October 18-25. I had a beautiful room, overlooking the garden and the ocean. I got a bit sick and the staff went beyond the call of duty to make me comfortable, until I got better. The restaurant manager could not do enough for us. The staff at the front desk were so pleasant. If... More

The location is nice up the hill in Ostuni, the room just standard with a bed of 160 cm, the airco leeking on the terrace, toweldryer not working... The hotel has some beautiful old details, but the rest has no attraction, faded orchids, paintings of every style on sale on the walls, old modern furniture. The reception area is unpersonal,...

This is a very, very good hotel indeed and any minor criticisms should be read with that basic judgement in mind. The location and setting are unbeatable; at the top of the old town with stunning views over the countryside to the coast. Drinks on the terrace at sunset make a memorable occasion, and the tranquil, laid-back ambience is complemented... More

Our 4th stop during our month in Italy was to Ostuni. Our only complaint was that we didn't know there was a shuttle to take us from their parking lot up to the hotel, where no car can or should drive! This village is so charming, and the hotel did not disappoint! Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff. The shuttle (and API... More
