“one night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Stayed one night before cycling trip. Did not use any of the facilities because we arrived late and left early the next morning. From what little I did see everything was pleasant and the other people in our group who stayed longer at the hotel had no complaints. Room was pleasant though I was unsure if the walls were painted to look faded or if it was actually just worn out. Overall I found the hotel sufficient for our needs for the one night.

Gentilissima Ospite,
grazie per il tempo che ci hai dedicato e per i giudizi nei nostri confronti.
Peccato che siete rimasti solo una notte, siete arrivati molto tardi e partiti molto presto!
Quindi, forse, non avete avuto modo di notare le nostre bellezze e le nostre opere d'arte.
Tornate a trovarci, magari con un po' di tempo in più a vostra disposizione, siamo certi che ne rimarrete piacevolmente sorpresi.
Arrivederci a presto.

Stayed here one night before catching flight back to London. Extremely friendly and helpful woman at check-in who immediately upgraded us to a suite. Very happy with the room, and with breakfast, which was excellent. Would happily stay here again.

Let's start with the good things:
- Large room. Note that rooms numbered x29 are ca 25% larger.
- Central location.

The drawbacks:
- Terrible internet connection. You get passwords that work only occasinally. You are frequently disconnected and have to reenter the password. Conclusion: practically, there is no internet in this hotel.
- Not enough elevators. You wait too long to go upstairs.
- This is an old hotel with some maitanance issues.
- Ugly view from the window.
- Dull breakfast, but there is enough food.

My conclusion is that this is a good hotel, especially for conferences. It's an old facility and I think that it is overpriced. The hotel people consider it as a "palace", and charge accordingly. Perhaps it was like this in the past, but not anymore.

Room Tip: Rooms numbered x29 are ca 25% larger and I think that you pay the same as for the other rooms.

Dear sir,
thanks for your time devoted to us and for the judgments written.
Our internet connection can fail if your terminal moves from room to the lobby, in the elevator you lose the signal, but the signal coverage is excellent throughout the hotel.
The Hall is well equipped with 3 very fast elevators carrying 6 people each, if we have 200 people who use them at the same time, it’s possible to wait a few minutes, what do you think about?
You are right in saying that some rooms have a view of the courtyard and when you tell us that our breakfast was ranked excellent by all our guests!
The same people who tell us that our quality / price ratio is high.
We hope to see you again soon, we'll give you a room overlooking the main street and a person at his disposal for your breakfast.
Cordially.

Beautiful place,beautiful people! Sonia at the front desk is a marvel! She was warm, welcoming and gave us a lovely room! The room is spacious. If I didn't know better I would think I was in an upscale American hotel. The bathroom is all marble the lighting should make USA hotels cringe it's fantastic! You can even turn off all lights from either side of the bed. Oh and yes there is an espresso machine in the room plus a flat screen tv and a small fridge. Breakfast on the seventh floor is so sumptuous that lunch wil never be necessary. And yes it overlooks the old town and harbor and you can eat on the splendid patio! Maybe, like Eloise I will just live here!

I could not have asked for more. Everyone was absolutely wonderful. Note to management: whatever you're paying them, it's not enough. From the moment I arrived I was treated like royalty; nothing was too much trouble for this fabulous team. The room and bathroom were elegant, spacious and comfortable. So what if it's not in the first flush of youth - if it's brutal modernism you want, go elsewhere. The Palace is just that: a palace of elegance and old-world Italian charm, where you, the client, have their attention 24/7. And if it's typical Pugliese cuisine you're after, look no further than the hotel's own very fine restaurant, which also provides the most abundant breakfast anyone could wish for. Its location is ideally poised between the old town and the designer shops - what more do you need? Patrizia, Roberto, Mimmo, Francesco & co - I salute you. But if English is your first language, ask for Mimma - whatever you need, she'll see to it for you, with pleasure. Grazie a tutti, davvero.

Stayed here for 5 nights in July 13. In a quiet location just off the main road and close to any number of decent restaurants etc. The Palace is very clean, very comfortable, has a very good restaurant (Grand breakfast). It is extremely well located for visiting the old city, the modern city centre and the seafront as well as other tourist attractions. It is also only a short walk to the central train station for anyone wanting to make trips - easily done.
Fully recommend the Palace Hotel and it is on a list to return to. Very professionally run and all staff were found to be extremely conscientious, courteous and most helpful.
It is all I would expect from a hotel of this standing and rating.
