Nothing to complain about. Actually, our room must have been one of the best. It was huge and even had a Nespresso Pro (pro!!) coffee machine! Breakfast was also more than ok, and location very central. Recommended!

Stayed in Bari for one night stopover and got a nice deal for this hotel. as I found out the "deal" provided me with a tiny bed in a small room and shower that made me feel that I want to stay out of the room as much as possible. The only upside is that there was a nice porch... More

The hotel is conveniently located. The rooms and bathrooms are adequate although some renovation would make them more attractive. It is a comfortable but not outstanding hotel. The restaurant is good.

Centrally located although a little distant from station. Overall reception staff very willing and helpful. Breakfast service excellent with an enormous choice. However at the weekend a little chaotic. Dinner on the 7th floor - felt very rushed and slightly disappointed. Room very large although needed updating. Generally a very good all round experience

This is a neat and clean hotel with nice old fashioned furniture and a bit rococo influenced. The breakfast was nice, not the best I have had but as a Scandinavian I don't get the idea with table loaded with cookies...

Before reading my opinion about this hotel please take into consideration that I spent only one night. This hotel is a classic case of an old aristocratic-like hotel that used to be top class many many years ago (probably). The public areas had a lot of vintage furniture, carpets, wonderful paintings and in general were heavily decorated creating this feeling... More

The hotel is in a terrific location close to the old town as well as the main shopping area. I think we may have been given an upgrade because our room was large with a separate sitting area and a balcony overlooking the city. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a good sized bathroom with plenty of hot water.... More
