We stayed one night at Villa Rosa Antica and of all the hotels we saw in Puglia this one was definitely the worst. The room at the ground floor was clean but dated and smelt of old cigarette smoke. The private balcony was nothing special either, with a view of the adjacent building. The location isn't the greatest, just off... More

Located at walking distance from the old town, in a typical mediterranean villa with a comfortable inner courtyard, this recently renovated hotel offers romantic bedrooms that are just a little too small to reach excellence. The staff is limited but efficient and the breakfast is just fine for Italians but maybe not wide enough to be called "continental". Overall, I... More

What a wonderful surprise at a walking distance from the harbor and old town in Otranto! I stumbled upon this jewel of a place by accident as a cousin with whom I was traveling, made the reservations. We got there during the day and the first impression as we drove through the gates was of a grand place, built for... More

Myself and partner loved this hotel it wasn't just somewhere to stay but defiantly made the whole holiday relaxing. Really helpfully front desk lady and a lush breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble and we can't thanks them enough for making our holiday as relaxing as it was. So close to town as well really handy. :)

The Hotel Rosso Antico is a lovely spacious feeling hotel, beautifully decorated with tasteful, traditional decor. It has a very pretty and perfectly tended garden. The staff are very friendly and professional. The breakfast is great. The breakfast includes fresh seasonal fruit and the best pastries (croissants) we've had in Otranto, and they make you fresh espresso, capuccino etc. The... More

The hotel was super nice, calm and the staff was great. The room was clean, big and very calm - had air con and a nice small balcony. Only downside is the location - to go to the city you'll have to walk for like 10-15min, which is not a big deal but you have to walk on a very... More

Stayed at Villa Rosa Antico for only two nights on our travels through Puglia. We had a room with a medium sized balcony overlooking a very nice garden. Great place for an evening glass of wine. Room was well equipped, staff very attentive (made restaurant suggestions, reservations, provided good wine glasses, directions). This is a hotel that has a distinctive... More

The hotel is great, very easy to access with a car, very charming and clean, with great service The only drawback is that while you can walk to Otranto (it is close-by), the road is not very nice (no sidewalk) so in the end it is better to get the car The road is very near but we picked a... More

Tucked away on a quiet street, 15 minutes walk from the city center and beaches, this hotel exudes charm and warmth. Our stay was a pleasant experience - the small hotel is immaculate, the breakfast was fresh and tasty, and the staff were very helpful. Not only would I recommend this hotel to friends and family, I would love the... More

We stayed at the Hotel Villa Rosa Antico in July and its one I'd the creepiest and depressing hotels I have stayed in. The Hotel is also quite old - pictures might have been from quite a few years ago. Wouldn't recommend and definitely wouldn't stay there again.
