The rooms and the rooms were large and the bathrooms were beautifully decorated wit h a Jacuzzi Shower. We did not eat in the hotel but noticed that it was pretty good value. There is a rooftop Jacuzzi. However having to pay 40e for half an hour to use the facility I felt was a bit much. The breakfast had... More

Beautiful seaside walled old town with this hotel in the center by the duomo. Quiet. Great views from the rooftop. Delicious breakfast. Room service was very attentive (though they were stingy with fresh towels). Unfortunately I took a star off as this is not a 5 star hotel. It's more like 3-4 star hotel - so set your expectations properly.

Location is great, in the heart of old town right next to duomo in no traffic zone. However, if you are bringing a car, the parking offered is offsite. Hotel offers to transfer you from their designated parking (where they have agreement) where you pay 15 EUR per day. Would have appreciated clear upfront instruction on website about this and...

Our stay at the Palazzo was very nice. With only 9 rooms our experience was very personalized. We were given a tour of the former palace upon our arrival before we were brought to our room. While the room was nice it did show some signs of wear and tear. Breakfast and dinner on the rooftop terrace was very nice... More

Lovely 9 room hotel in former private residence located in the heart of Otranto's pedestrian-only old city, steps from the basilica cathedral and a short walk to the beach and the port. Driving your own car? Be aware that you must park and walk 1/4 mile to the hotel. There, the outstanding staff will greet you, arrange to move your... More

Both the location and the service are perfect. The staff is very friendly, and the breakfast on the roof terrace is good, too. The room is comfortable, too. When I travel in south Italy, I stay again.

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.
