“Good hotel, not great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2008

I was in the hotel twice during last few month becausa I was in Taranto for business.
The hotel is great!

When you arrive the staff is very kind and you quickly check in.
Some more problems at check out: longer because there is only one person at the reception.
Rooms are perfectly in Best Wester style: essential, not too big but very clean and with all confots you need.
Bathroom is quite small but absolutely well organized and very clean.

Breackfast is good but quite poor.

The very bad point is the location!
Even if the hotel is on the seaside and you have a great scene looking outside the window if you turn your head you will see the wood of chimney of ENI!
Moreover you can have some difficulties in finding the hotel.
It is very close to ENI but not well marked and if you don't have a detailed map or a GPS you will not be able to find it.
It is quite far from Taranto city center and you must use your car if you don't want to eat at the restaurant in the hotel. (I didn't tried it)

However the overall judgement is positive if you have just to sleep and you travel for business.
