“Hightly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I was in Brindisi for a wedding. My friends booked a room at Malvasia B&B and I tried to book it as well via tripadvisor. Unfortunatley there was no availability for those days. I called the B&B and Ornella, the owner, told me that luckly there was a room available.

So I spent two nights in this beautiful and very central B&B. My room was the Johnathan room, which had a mezzanine level. The room was huge and immaculate and extremely clean. In the morning I had an excellent and very tasty breakfast and a chat with the really friendly owner. She suggested some places nearby for very good and affordable meals. There was the market square only a few steps from the B&B and few nice restaurants and cafe' around the square. The B&B was centrally located, just 15 minutes walk from the station, the harbour and all the main attractions of Brindisi. Excellent place and warm welcome. hightly recommended!

The best place to start your discovery of Puglia. Very nice room full off beautiful pieces of "recycled" art. Ornella is a very warm and engaged person with a lot off cultural baggage and this you can see and feel in this place. Breakfast was great with lots off personal touch.
Thanks to mention us the super fish-restaurant and the Dario Fo-expo, it was WOW !
Grazie mille e io ritorno presto,
Marianne (Belgio)

Been here with my husband a couple of months ago...we chose it not for the price, but for two reasons mainly: because of the rating on tripadvisor and because we were preparing an article on Salento for our magazine. What a disappointment! The people there are lovely, but it is more an apartment than anything. Far from the port which is the most beautiful sightseeing in Brindisi, impossible to find a parking. Everything included the bathroom/toilet is sopoor and basic even considering the low price. Rejected...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Malvasia and were made to feel very welcome by Ornella, a lovely, friendly host. The apartment we had for the night had all the comforts of home and we enjoyed a local seafood dinner near the nearby market, based on Ornella's recommendation. We greatly appreciated being able to leave our luggage there after checking out and before catching a ferry to Greece. Would highly recommend Malvasia B&B to anyone. Grazie Ornella!

A beautiful building with super art work. We had our own apartment and roof garden, where we spent hours in the sunshine drinking wine. The breakfast was a feast, so much lovely food to eat. The owners were warm and friendly and they had a georgous little dog. We would recommend the Malvasia, it's fantastic value for money and a delightful place to stay.

Malvasia b@b has an extraordinary quality. The bed was excellent and the breakfast of high gourmet class with great variation. One of the best b@b during our visits around the Mediterranean Sea. The location close to the market Place and Victoria square is perfect for discovering Brindisi and its restaurants. We can recommend Siamo fritti by the market. Only 6 tables so you have to book. This is an local fishrestaurant with superb menu and moderate prices. Brindisi is a perfect beginning for discovering Apulien and if you start by Ornella at Malvasia b@b your visit will be a long lasting memory

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
"Malvasia" bed & breakfast is an oasis of peace located in the heart of Brindisi, a short walk from the "Verdi" theater, the town hall and Piazza Mercato (where a daily market is held), between the train station and the port. Malvasia is also the name of a local wine but it literally means "mallow like" (referring to the color of the flower), from the French mal-và, to ease pain, mallow is a plant commonly used to ease pain. So, as we liked the meaning, we thought it may be of good omen to create a place where our guests could feel at home in a comfortable and welcoming environment. The building is a typical local construction with vaulted ceilings and decorated marble pavements its rooms are bright and well-ventilated. Two small balconies overlook a small and quiet pedestrian lane, but you only have to walk round the corner and you%u2019re in the busy Piazza Vittoria, heart of the old town centre activities. It 'consists of two nice apartments in an old building, completely refurbished independent, super-equipped Jonathan and Black Sheep, each apartment can accommodate up to 4 persons; the Black Sheep has access to a beautiful terrace where you can relax or play with your four-legged friend.We also offer a shuttle service to/from airport and Costa Morena, we can also arrange garage reservations for your vehicles. ... more   less
