Stayed here for one night on a business trip to Taranto. I really wish it had been longer. Absolutely amazing hotel. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. No one at home could believe the pictures. I will go back with my wife for a romantic stay. My only complaint was the temperature. It was July in southern Italy so it was hot. The AC unit in the room wouldn't go lower than 22 (72 F) but there is no way the room was even that cool. It had to be over 25 C in the room. To make things worse, the only AC source was blocked by the curtains when they were closed. Other than that, absolute wonderful place.
