“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

We stayed at the L'Arcangelo on our trip through Italy. it was our third trip to Italy and the hotel is now our firm favourite. The room was even better than it looked on the website. The service was always friendly and delivered with a smile. A good variety for breakfast with eggs cooked to order.
There is also a very good restaurant just across the road 'Frisc'&mmange' which made for a very pleasant evening.

This hotel is right on the edge of the Piazza Fountain, and the edge of the old town. It is clean and comfortable, with great staff who strive to help in every way. The breakfast was ordinary and at times the wifi was a little clunky but overall a great experience.
Its location surroundings are very old and confronting, but the locals are friendly. The hotel staff recommended a restaurant diagonally across the square, The Frisc & Mmange, which serves very fresh local seafood. It was fantastic value.
If you want to experience the 'old town' of Taranto this is the place to stay.
The hotel shows its address at via Garibaldi, our mapping could not find it, it was listed as Via Guiseppe Garibaldi. But if you find Fountain Piazza you can't help but see the hotel.

This is one of the most beautiful boutique hotels in Europe. It is situated in the old city of Taranto just in front of Piazza Fontana and 30 m. from the sea. Excellent service. Logical prices. Every room is unique and most of all warm reception and family atmosphere. We have enjoyed a wonderful long week end. Grazie.

If you are considering staying in Taranto then this hotel should make your decision for you.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here recently and we can say without hesitation that this is an outstanding 3 star hotel at a comparatively budget price. The welcome was warm, enthusiastic and friendly. The passion for the hotel and their city from our host and hostesses was clear and the whole experience of our time here was one of pleasure and comfort. We felt we were in an extremely well appointed and relaxing home from home where nothing was too much trouble.

Our room was attractive and well-appointed with a comfortable bed and a beautifully finished modern bathroom. The included breakfast was tasty, fresh and we were offered further options which were not laid out but would be provided freshly from the kitchen. We were repeatedly asked if everything was to our liking or if there was anything more we required, but in a friendly genuine way and not as on off-hand afterthought, and we had proper conversations - not just "Have a nice day"!

Arriving from the railway station the first appearances of Taranto are a little off-putting as Taranto is a working industrial city and the short walk to the hotel is not through the tidiest area. However, the hotel is directly in front of you in the Piazza at the end of the bridge and stands out as a newly renovated old building among less well maintained old properties.

Any qualms we had on arriving in Taranto were immediately dispelled on entering the hotel, and we came to love the curious fascinating charm of the city and appreciate the location of the hotel for its convenience for the station and its superb position right at the start of the old city. Taranto is also convenient for a day trip by train to see the trullis of Alberobello.

We visited nearly at the end of a 3 week tour which saw us travel the length of Italy with short stays in other adjacent countries travelling by train, and this was one of only 3 visits out of 10 where we were truly sad to leave.

If you are not sure whether to stay in Taranto or not then please do, and if you do decide to stay here, look no further than the Hotel L'Arcangelo. We do not believe that you will be disappointed, and if you are then we cannot believe that you are true travellers but mere tourists and can only assume that you do not appreciate the nature of the city and the personal touches of a small hotel.

Room Tip: The corner rooms such as we had with windows and balconies on 2 sides give lots of light if required...

We only stayed for two nights and it was late in the season (end of September) so not much was happening. We stayed in the room pictured and it was very comfortable with a splendid modern bathroom. The staff we extremely helpful, although the wifi only worked down in the restaurant, but it was free. The restaurant only served breakfast, but they recommended a good fish restaurant opposite for dinner.

Room Tip: Have a suite if you can.

A delightful stay with a passionate ambassador for the city as hostess. The rooms are not big, but nicely appointed and clean. It has a great atmosphere and is nicely decorated. For instance the front desk used to be an altar from a local church.
It is very close to the most beautiful, ornate baroque church.
The new part of town is a 15minute walk away and makes for a great stroll in the evening.
