Papaleo is a boutique hotel perfectly located within the city walls of Otranto. This great location comes with a small inconvenient when trying to reach the hotel by car, my advice is to note down the number of the hotel and set your gps to via delle torri. Once there, drive to the end of via delle torri right before... More

Maybe it was just because of the specific room we got, but we were awaken by the first guests who arrived to breakfast at like 7am. We could hear everything from our room! So the bad is a bad night's sleep. The good: breakfast, staff, service, location, views and rooms were great, and I particularly loved the decor of the... More

Let the chef cook you a meal, it was one of the best we have had in Italy! Good location and ask to use the lift to the top floor if you need one. You will also need good directions and a porter to help you with your car/luggage on arrival.

Very good hotel with a fantastic central location in Otranto. Perfect to explore the Salento during the day and enjoy a dinner in one of the many restaurants in lovely Otranto in the evening. Beautiful terrace overlooking the sea for breakfast in the morning. Not a luxury 5 start hotel but a very good 4 start plus hotel (and price... More

Located right next to the cathedral in the heart of the old city in an historic building with a wonderful rooftop restaurant. Very attentive and friendly staff. The really unique and special feature is a great cook in the restaurant that serves exclusively the hotel guests and consults individually with to come up with a meal designed to their specific...

Especially nice is that you are inside the lively old city with its many restaurants, but only 50 m from the quay, where bathing in the crystall clear sea is best. It is a very, very relaxing place with many options what to do. Breakfast is on the roof-garden, with a perfect view of the sea. Deliciuos dishes in variations... More

Spent three nights here to enjoy a typical Puglian small city seaside resort; staying in the finest hotel added a twist of elegance to our stay. The rooftop is spectacular with views over the bay and out into the Adriatic Sea--have breakfast here or a drink before strolling out for dinner. Very helpful and attentive staff. Park your car at...

Welcome....(The best ever!) From Dario and all the team. Car parking....Done for us and brought back to hotel whenever we wanted. Location.....Best in town....Middle of Centro Storico. Service.....Great, from beginning to end. Restaurant......Rooftop...Great views and great food from a top chef and Carlo. In summary....You won't find anywhere better, especially if you have a balcony.

We made a last-minute reservation at the hotel and the staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. They helped us with excursions and arranged food and drink on the roof-top patio to enjoy the sunset. The rooms were well set up with plenty of storage and nice bathrooms. The breakfast was delicious and there was a good... More
