This was the first of three hotels we stayed at during our honeymoon in Southern Italy. All of the hotels were 5*, and La Sommita was without question the worse value of the three. We regularly stay in 5* hotels so had no issue paying the 400 Euro a night price tag for the Le Volte Master Suite. The issue... More

La Sommita is charming small boutique hotel in very ancient building with very spacious rooms and interesting design. My room was lovely spacious suite with breathtaking view. Everything was tidy and very clean. Staff in the hotel was very attentive and helpful - there was nothing impossible. Breakfast in small garden under lemon trees - stylish. Also our dinner was...

The location is the only good thing about this hotel, in the historical center of Ostuni. The common areas of the hotel are spacious and the view from the 1st floor salons is spectacular. The breakfast was abundant and the terrace on which it was served was charming. However the hotel needs a revamp as the decor is now passé... More

We went for lunch at this wonderful resturant on the review in the Times, and were not dissapointed it was a fantastic meal and considering its a 1 star rated resturant very reasonable.

We had a beautiful night's stay in Ostuni at the Sommita to start our trip in Puglia. Ostuni is absolutely gorgeous and incredibly special - do not miss it. La Sommita was perfect from start to finish - great staff with a genuine desire to serve and assist, and they do so with appropriate measures of propriety and warmth. Didn't... More

This is not an easy hotel to find. If we weren't with friends from Bari (who obviously spoke Italian), we would have never found the hotel by ourselves. We had the Cattedrale suite (no view) which was very comfortable for my husband, 2 sons, and me; highly recommend this room for a family of 3-4. The beds were comfortable, Frette... More

This resort is nice, in a quaint town. Pictures make it look a lot better. Service was terrible and ruined the entire experience. We felt very unwelcome and uncomfortable throughout the stay. We stayed in several hotels during our 2 week stay in Italy and this hotel was the most expensive and worst service. It is very sad, because the... More

Spent three nights here on our first leg of our Puglian tour! We were greeted by a warm welcome from reception staff, and taken to our room. The accommodation provided ultimate comfort in both communal and private areas, and nicely decorated, mostly in a monochromatic, neutral palette. Breakfast is in plentiful supply of local delicacies, also eggs freshly cooked in... More

This is a beautiful hotel located in the most beautiful part of Ostuni. It is certainly falls in the "Old World" category as even a current-day, regular sized car is too big to be brought up to the front of the hotel. Be aware that you will have to call the hotel in advance to have them send down their... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relais La Sommita' is a mansion of 16th century and represents the diamond at the top of the historical centre of Ostuni, with 15 elegant rooms divided in Deluxe, Deluxe View, Suite and one Master Suite.This is a retreat, a shelter, a moment of quiet in an over stimulated life, an environment that meant to envelop rather than impress.The interiors walk the line between an ascetic minimalism and a stylish luxury, in a palette of creams and off-whites, with the sort of quiet and solid furnishings that are the signifiers of high-end modern interior design. Stone walls, natural textile, wood are the materials that characterize the interiors of Relais La Sommità. The bathrooms are always characterized by the same minimalist style of wood, marble, stone, archway and Culti brands products and Bulgari for the Suites. ... more   less
