“Handy Airport Stopover”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We used this on outward and inward stopovers at Bari airport. A large hotel with pool, spa etc (which we did not use), but we did enjoy diner both times in the restaurant in the evening and the buffet breakfast (included) offered a wide choice. On first arrival we walked from the airport to the hotel, with luggage, but it was quite tiring in the heat. Thereafter we used their shuttle bus (5 Euros per person per trip). All very clean and modern with helpful staff. Would recommend as an airport hotel, and maybe even for a stay in Bari, as Bari has a cheap Park and Ride system.

Room Tip: Any room should be fine

Very high quality for this airport-based **** hotel and spa. We stayed over for one night, and we managed to enjoy the pleasant swimming pools and massages. Although it was high season, beginning of August, we were nearly alone in using the spa services. The restaurant on the ground floor offers a selection of local dishes, and the overall quality is very good (said by an Italian originally coming from Apulia Region).

Really it does not matter that it is situated near Bari airport and not in the city center as other much more expensive hotels as Bari with your own car or by train from the airport is only 15 minutes away. I love this hotel as it is modern and clean, service in the restaurant and bar is perfect and the rooms are modern and spacious. We had a family room with 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms.
Fantastic pool and spa but we used only the pool. Perfect hotel in Bari without spending a fortune.

Have stayed here a few times now and it's lovely. Clean rooms. Lovely staff. Very modern, nice toiletries etc... Great value for money. It's a business hotel but our children have always been welcomed. Lots of 'tables for one' at dinner... Obviously for business people. We livened things up with our children. Staff cooked our children pasta with tomato sauce, simple dish. Very accommodating. Pool fabulous! I did have a treatment. A manicure. Was a bit weird as the therapist had obviously come from outside to do my treatment. She wasn't staff. She didn't use good quality products on me etc... Just cheap lotions etc.. Was ok though... Just thought it would be a proper spa treatment. Lady wasn't wearing a uniform etc.. Just in her normal clothes and we say in a room which wasn't like a 'spa' room in UK.
We had a family room with two rooms, two bathrooms, two astro-turfed balconies. Really spacious!

This hotel is one Bari's newest hotels. The hotel is located literally 5 mins. from the airport and it has a shuttle which collects and drops you off for a small fee. It is big and immaculately clean with a spa and indoor pool. The room I had aside from being very nice in size had everything I could have hoped for. It had a very comfortable double bed, a bathroom that was well lit with a shower big enough for two people, wifi and a flat screen TV with international channels. The restaurant was spacious with nice food for dinner and a wonderful Italian breakfast buffet. The staff were professional and polite. This is a excellent hotel for a short stay!

Parco dei Principi is the best hotel that I have stayed in Italy. because they are generally expensive and do not worth to the money you give but this is the exception. Very close to the airport and clean. Rooms are big that you can feel that you are at the sitting room in your house. breakfast menu is very well with lots of choises. unfortunately I couldn't have time to try spa, I hope for next trip.

We chose this hotel as a base to explore Bari and the surronding areas. The hotel is still ver new and nicely situated just outside the city. The hotel staff were friendly, the rooms were very nice and the restaurant was quite enjoyable. Seems that alot of business travellers stay here, but we would recommend this hotel to anyone.
