A great hotel. Firstly, Otranto is a wonderful town and our pick of Puglia and this hotel made our time there even better. Arriving was easy, being picked up at the parking and taken to the hotel in a golf buggy. The staff are super friendly, going out of their way to help. Breakfast is served on the roof and... More

Nice hotel, charming staff and lovely terrace on the roof. We had a lovely time. The hotel is very central, clean and well decorated. I recommend deeply. The only thing which could be improved is the breakfast: it is good and varied, but you could expect higher quality food in a 5* hotel.

Wonderful boutique Hotel! Excellent service, beautiful rooms, very reasonable rates (for a five star hotel), perfect location in the heart of the old town of Otranto. It transformed a good holiday into a great one! 😊☀️😎 We will definitely come back to Palazzo Papaleo on our next trip to Apulia region!!!

The third one is Palazzo Papaleo, the two days staying made me feel that I came back from hell to heaven. The staffs are SUPER FRIENDLY, the... More

While access to the hotel by car is not directly possible, some early planning and contact with the Hotel will easily resolve this. Transport by Golf Cart and Valet parking resolves this. Very comfortable rooms, and a great rooftop restaurant area, are somewhat secondary to the location. In the Old Centre of twin and within walking distance to the Castle... More

This was the second occasion that we have stayed here. All the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and we were treated with consummate courtesy. The hotel can recommend beaches other than the beaches along the main front in Otranto (which are not far away) that are well provided with sun umbrellas and good places to eat. The breakfasts are...
