Great location in the center of a charming town. Rooms are spacious and bathroom is great. Very nice breakfast buffet. Walls are not soundproof so you are up when your neighbors are up. Concierges were helpful with restaurant suggestions and reservations.

The hotel was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was great with local focaccia bread. The staff was very helpful. Fabrizio, Elvira, Sarah, and Salvador all wonderful. We decided to extend by 1 day but the hotel managed to do some shuffling and moved us to another room so that we could stay a day longer.

Originally we had planned to stay only one night on our way to the Gargano but we loved both the hotel and the place so much that we decided to stay put for a further two nights. The hotel is immaculate, and the rooms are... More

We stayed here for 1 night only. I would highly recommend it. Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was spotless with every amenity provided for. Breakfast was ok. Location was great. The only fault I can think of is the price, a bit steep!
