If you are on business this is well located place to lay your head in Bari. The service is pretty average. The gym sauna and other facilities either closed or unusable. The food in the restaurant is unremarkable - yet the breakfast is pretty good.
The service at the bar is also fairly non committal and closes promptly when the staff shift ends.
Dont think about lying in bed in the morning as the cleaning staff will get you moving with corridor long conversations, rattling and knocking every door as soon as THEY are ready to clean.
The hotel is flooded with suited smoking males who are attending conferences during the week. The attention of all staff is typically diverted to serve these people. If you are not one of them you will need to patient.
If you are here on business the hotel is properly functional and does the job. However do not fool yourself into thinking that you could also stay here for a couple of days break. and enjoy the (sunless) ice bath that they call a pool. Unless you are the type to be up every morning and out exploring in a hire car - don't bother. You would be far better advised to do your business here then relocate to another hotel for pleasure.
One final point. Front desk staff could do a with a course in customer service. Whatever it is they are doing - it is far more important that serving or helping customers.
