We stayed here for several days which was great. When we arrived in the car we couldn't actually get to the hotel as the roads were closed. Anyone planning a stay should phone ahead and get parking information. We ate in the restaurant on one evening and it was very good, we met with the chef to discuss our menu,... More

I am a frequent traveler to Italy and one of those people for whom a hotel is MUCH more than just a place to sleep. I love the entire experience: the beauty of the rooms, the environment, the view and the amenities. I love good service but hate hovering. Hotel Palazzo Papaleo was exacly the kind of place I value.... More

More a large town house than a palace this is a comfortable and very convenient place to stay. The staff were friendly and helpful and the dinner we chose in the terrace restaurant was excellent. Sea Bass baked in breadcrumbs. Others were eating it baked in salt and that too looked very good. The site of the hotel allows you... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel and the staff could not have been more accommodating or friendly. The rooms are comfortable and there is a lovely rooftop where breakfast is served. It is a modern hotel, but filled with beautiful old furniture that makes it feel classic. You cannot park right near the hotel, but the staff brings a golf... More

the location was excellent, the room small but comfortable, great terrace with a view. Good breakfast, friendly staff. The only criticism might be the room with a strong air freshener smell about it. Overall a good town to stay in

It is very difficult to drive to this hotel and we were never pre-warned that parking in the immediate area is almost impossible. That said we eventually got the transportation logistics sorted parking some distance away from the hotel and had the use of a golf buggy to move luggage from the car park to the hotel. The accommodation was... More

We were here two nights and loved every minute of it. Otranto is a beautiful city and the many area around the harbor is nice for an evening stroll after dinner. The hotel had a wonderful, sunny rooftop restaurant for breakfasts.

We recently stayed 5 nights at Palazzo Papaleo and enjoyed every minute. The location is perfect. A lovely hotel, generous room, breakfast on the rooftop, professional and friendly staff where nothing is too much trouble made our stay in Otranto one to remember.
