My expectations were surpassed at the Hotel Palazzo Papaleo! This gorgeous, boutique hotel was once the summer home of the Papaleo family, renovated and opened in 2007. Located in the old town...

We had booked this via tripadvisor. We found a great deal with breakfast included at €101 for the both of us. The hotel is brilliantly located near the cathedral.

Lovely hotel, excellent service and great location in Otranto. The rooms are well sized and presented. This hotel is great value for money and also has spaces at a beach club near to Otranto which has a lovely beach. Dinner on the rooftop highly recommended.

At the doorsteps of the beautiful Cathedral. The hotel is an old converted palace. Nicely appointed, but has lost its charme.Great breakfast on the terrace! Overall a good stay with very helpfull reception.

Boutique hotel located in the historic center of Otranto. The hotel is an ancient palazzo which was completely renovated and transformed into a luxury boutique hotel. Small, only 10 rooms but very nice. the highlight is certainly the breakfast on the rooftop.
