Very nice and modern hotel. Approximately 10 min walk to the old city. Nice outdoor area and roof terrace. Nice bar at groundfloor were complimentary water and fruits are served all day. Rooms are spotless, but small. Newly renovated.

The most beautifully designed hotel we have stayed in. Wherever the eye falls there is something to enjoy. 5 mins walk from old town, friendly staff, ok breakfast, rooms small but perfectly formed. Loses a star for closing the hot tub on the rather wonderful roof terrace. We chose it largely because we wanted a hot tub which featured prominently... More

Valle Dell'Idro was recommended to us by a friends family who live in Puglia and we were not disappointed. This is a lovely hotel situated just close enough to centre of Otranto to walk easily to restaurants and far enough and high enough from centre to provide some seclusion and great views. Finding the hotel when driving was a bit... More

Last time we came to Otranto, 3 years ago, we stayed in the town centre, and did wonder whether this nice modern hotel would be lacking in character. In fact, it is really quite close, has great facilities, good (English-speaking) staff and lovely breakfasts. Nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. There is a hot tub on the roof top, with views...

We stayed here in August 2015, and everything about the hotel was lovely. We arrived tired and hot. The staff were welcoming; nothing was too much trouble. Our room was excellent. Breakfast the next morning was varied and catered for all tastes.

This hotel is amazing, it is not on the historical city centre, but it is a 5 min walk from there. The staff, specially the reception people are just amazing, they were always smiling and ready to help you on any question you may have, from renting a boat to the best pizza in Otranto.

We stayed at the Relais in May for 1 week and enjoyed our stay. The receptionists were very helpful. The room was very clean although we didn't feel that the cleaner swept the bedroom floor during our stay. The roof terrace was great and we often spent an hr up there before dinner. The hotel is located in a residential... More
