In a fairly shabby district of the town, the hotel overlooks the pleasant town of Otranto. Parking wasn't offered in their garage, so we made do on the street - be careful park outside the blue marked bays for which you are obliged to pay. The hotel itself is nice, modern and with smart contemporary look and feel. That being... More

We advised dirty and dishevelled after cycling all day, the staff were so kind and helpful and best of all informed us about the rooftop hot tub, which you can reserve by the hour (10euros per person, including a glass of prosecco). Feels really special up on the rooftop, looking out over the town. Breakfast is fantastic and the rooms... More

This cute little hotel was awesome. We were in Otranto for a wedding and they were very helpful. Our room was great, only complaint was the shower is very small and the shower head kept turning....once it sprayed into the bathroom....kinda funny but certainly made a mess of water.

The hotel is impeccably clean, the staff are always on hand to help, and the rooftop provides a Jacuzzi (which you have to pay for, which is a little annoying) and stellar views of the city centre which you can view as you sip prosecco. Spotlessly clean, although the smaller rooms are just that - small!

We were very satisfied with our stay. Clean room, nice lobby, fast wi-fi and excellent breakfast buffet (the scrambled eggs with the zucchini was fanstastic :))... One small disappointment - they make a "tourist-size" coffee for breakfast - a size too big to be really excellent. But if you are into it, you will be happy.
