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

Really attentive and helpful staff. Front desk, dining room and cleaning staff all very polite and helpful. Did valet parking for us on two occasions as car park is a couple of blocks away. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Best breakfast we experienced in three weeks in Puglia.

We stayed here for a 5 day weekend at the beginning of May and couldn’t have asked for anything better. It is wonderfully centrally located. The room was spacious and clean. It was the top hotel in the town but remains very traditional. So there was a bit of a feeling of staying at your aunt’s long-occupied rural Palacio rather... More
