“Great hotel.... in the middle of nowhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

Pleasant hotel in the middle of nowhere. You need a GPS or good map to access it. Everything is brand new and staff is very professional. Comfortable room and huge bathroom. Good wifi directly in the room. Breakfast was good (fresh local products are showcased)

a very good hotel, very clean, european breakfast, friendly staff, nice rooms and bathrooms, very good price-quality, a lot of space, free garage etc. - no restaurant, no swimming pool, maybe in the future?
We stayed there 3 times, alone and with friends, and had an excellent stay.

The hotel is situated beside a road in a small village in Salento. There are restaurants in the village but better eating is to be had in Otranto which is about 10 minutes by car. The hotel was purpose built about two years ago and retains it's novelty. Much thought has been put into the design of everything, sometimes to the detriment of practicality, but overall extremely good. Andrea the manager speaks reasonable conversational English and we had no trouble in making ourselves understood. The rest of the staff are cheerful and helpful and have basic English. Andrea was most helpful, suggesting restaurants and itineraries for driving around Salento and Puglia. He seems to work all hours but remained cheerful and informative throughout the 4 nights we spent there. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms modern and bright. The shower was the best I have ever encountered in a hotel and everything necessary was provided. The only small gripe was the relative lack of drawer storage in the bedroom but it is perfectly adequate for a short stay. Breakfast is a good, substantial buffet style affair served in a large breakfast area which also has a small bar with most drinks and coffee can be had at any hour that the staff are on duty (definitely up until 10 pm and sometimes later). There is a secure underground car park although cars would appear to be perfectly safe parked in the substantial areas around the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone travelling in the area.

We spent 4 nights from 3rd to 7th of December.
The hotel seems almost brand new, perfectly clean. The rooms are large, very nice, as well as the bathrooms.
Free undergroung garage.
Employees absolutely perfect (all of them : Andrea, Anna...), for service and advices on things to see in the region, and places to have dinner.

In conclusion, a very nice surprise for a perfect stay.

PS : We went according to hotel favourite restaurants list to the "Agriturismo del Pastore" (8km from the Sanlu towards Otranto) : infinite number of antipasti (10 plates if I remember well !!!), pasta first dish, meat/french fries and salad second dish, fruit and dessert, water, wine, coffee and digestivo. Very local atmosphere. 33Euro for 2 persons ! To be recommended for sure.

After one night in Gallipoli in a terible noisy room in Hotel Bianko we escaped to the east cost. We found out that Otranto is much beautiful than Gallipoli. Even if the location of the Sanlu hotel was not in those destinations we wished we desided to stay there. The price of a double room was just 49 EUR, the room was modern, clean and with WI-FI connection. The real gem was a young receptionist who explained to us the local product which they have served for breakfast. Only local ricotta and prima sale. Four homemade tarts, pasticciotti and friselli - very hard bread that you have to soak first in water and than garnish with tomatoes and olive oil. Such breakfast was a great start of the day. We also have got a list of recommended restaurants in the near area. Even if the hotel does not look great from outside, inside you will find your peace!

my first time in the region of Puglia and this hotel was a perfect choice. I'm a beach and nightlife enthusiast and i found this hotel perfectly located for my intents. Driving by car to the nearests beaches (Torre Dell'Orso my fave) was a matter of 15m. The typical village of Serrano is very calm aswell as the suburbs.

The hotel has a modern look, very fashion, the climatization inside makes you feel very confortable (specially in the hot summer days :) )
The staff is helpfull and very kind!
The rooms are very confortable , with AC. lcd and sattelite tv, free wireless internet access, fridge,locker and a huge bed in double room :)

Free underground private parking was a plus.

couldn't ask more for a 3 star hotel in this region. well... i could ask one thing more: a swimming pool would be the cherry in the top of the cake! :))
