This is a lovely hotel with very pleasant + helpful staff. It's a perfect location with shopping one way and the old town close by. Our room was very comfortable and lots to choose for breakfast. We had a late flight the next night and availed of an evening check out for a small charge. Everything so easy and nothing... More

Arrived to find the double room we had booked was set as a twin bed with only a bed sheet no bed cover. Asked reception if they could change during the day, they said yes. Once returned later that day it still was not done, we went to reception again and asked to have them change to what we had... More

Bari really impressed me and it was a shame I was only here for 1 night prior to flying home. The Hotel Orient is a superb base as it is walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and bars. Checked in and allocated room on the fifth floor looking into the central atrium so it was perfectly quiet. The room... More

A first time in Bari, coming from the airport you can leave your rental car to the concierge and it will be parked privately. Then very close from the shopping area and the old city you can walk around. Rooms are very clean but small. People welcome you warmly and are sharp and efficient. Breakfast is Italian, excellent. Very good... More

Excellent hotel and amenities...great breakfast, spotless, couldn't have picked a better spot for location and value. Short walk from train station, restaurants and nightclubs. We selected an internal courtyard view which was perfect for our needs...panoramic view from terrace on top floor.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, iti is very close to the centre of the City, the shopping area and bus station. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are quiet. Breakfast is good, with Swedish Buffet. I have nothing to complain about.

From the warm welcome to the goodbye, we enjoyed staying at this Hotel. We were a group of 40 on our 2016 Italy Tour, we were very fortunate to enjoy the rooftop terrace for our farewell dinner, during a beautiful evening in late June the food, the service, were all first class, a special thank you to the GM Chiara...

It is an easy walk to the fascinating old city, the castle and the sea from this attractive building. The staff are helpful and the rooms comfortable and well-equipped. We only stayed one night as we were travelling on and cannot comment on the restaurant as we did not eat there. We did, however, go up to the roof garden... More

The hotel is located at a walking distance from shops, restaurants and site seeing areas. The rooms are clean and relatively spacious. They have a nice rooftop. The staff is friendly but not always helpful. Not the best service given the price you pay.

The hotel was beautifully appointed and the staff very helpful, especially Luciano. The location of the hotel is key because it is on the main avenue, in walking distance to old town. A great walk and visit. Also close to wonderful restaurants and shops. Some of the best. Breakfast is very good, not skimpy in any way. Highly recommend it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Oriente goes back to his origins after a long and careful restoration process. It opens up again and reminds through his architecture and decorations the golden age in which it was the most appreciated hotel in Bari. This old hospitality tradition started in the first years of the twentieth century, with businessmen trading between Balkans and Far East with Bari, “PortaD’Oriente”. An elected place for meeting and to discover other world.Since the opening in 1928, Hotel Oriente has hosted the greatest Opera tenors, who played their performances in the near world-famous Teatro Petruzzelli, becoming immediately,the chosen place by these celebrities. The Hotel is located inCorso Cavour, in the heart of Bari Centre. Hotel Oriente still represents the ideal meeting point for businessmen and also for tourists that love going shopping or sightseeing and wander in the narrow streets of the main town in Apulia. Chic and comfortable furniture enriches the atmosphere of each one of the 75 rooms and suites. Decorations are carefully perfected in all details, white play of light and kristal. The rooms have an elegant and determined artistic temperament and offer all the comforts to the guests.A nice surprise is the Roof Garden, that overlooks the whole city of Bari, the dome of Petruzzelli Theater and on the horizon the deep blue sea. A breath-taking panorama, perfect setting fora characteristic breakfast, a wine party at sunset, or for a cosy drink beneath the starry vault of heaven. A unique sensationthat will make unforgettable your stay in Hotel Oriente.The American Bar is opened for whole day and it is the ideal meeting place for friends or a cosy point for a pause. Here you will taste original cocktails.There are also two well-equipped meeting rooms to do your business. Hi-Tech and tradition, in the service of quality ... more   less
