“Great hotel, perhaps a little too far from the center if you don't have a car”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Staff very nice, especially the waiter during breakfast. Rooms spacy and clean, Wi-Fi signal good even thou you have to log in every freaking time. As the title says, the only cons is the distance from the center (around 20 min walking, relaxed pace)

A modern and well maintained hotel with nice design. The noise from the air conditioning is a little high. The restaurant serving excellent. In 30 minutes walk you reach the Sassi where are restaurants with Italian food.

As in several Italian towns, we found it difficult locating somewhere to stay – the signs tend to disappear, and we went around in a circle several times before finding this – and only then as we asked a local shopkeeper where it was.
However, once found, we really liked the hotel. A very modern, clean, light, and well laid out hotel with en suite rooms, A/C, large windows, comfortable large bed, and excellent free Wi-Fi . It had the best hanging and drawer space of anywhere in our holiday. The only drawback was the small red light bulb high on the wall – we think it was to help you find your way around in the dark but we only had to turn over in bed, let alone climb out of bed, for it to glow very brightly and which disturbed us several times.
The breakfast was very varied, very fresh and served by a charming waiter / porter. They also had a licensed bar and served dinner, but we ate out.
There is a free underground car park.
The receptionist was a bit economical with the truth in describing the uphill walk to the town centre as being 10 – 15 minutes; we did it in the evening to see the Sassi floodlit but would not have wanted to do it in the daytime heat. Next day we took the car and found a cheap car park very convenient for the Sassi district.
We would stay there again.

We traveled by car, arrived late in the evening and were pleased to find this hotel on the way - vacant rooms, decent price, underground parking. The hotel seemed as if it was built yeasterday and opened today's morning - everything so clean and modern style. We liked the inside atmosphere, simple breakfast and perfect wi-fi (free) in the room, so... we stayed for two more nights.
It's 5-7 mins by car to the city medieval center - sassi district.
Recommended for all younger travellers by car & for business trips.

This place was a wonderful find. Extremely modern, quiet with wonderful, friendly and very helpful staff.

We arrived late on Saturday night by train and just stumbled upon this hotel. The bed was so comfortable. The breakfast included with the room is fantastic!!! The man serving breakfast is charming. In the morning we checked out and walked the Sassi from the hotel, not that far away. Around mid afternoon we went to catch the train back to Bari only to find that there were no trains or buses on Sundays. So we went back to the hotel and they were so good to us. They gave us another room for the night at a discounted price. We spent the rest of the afternoon in the bar watching football with the staff. The looked up bus and train times for us for Monday morning so we would not be waiting around again. We were really made to feel like family.
