This hotel is in an excellent, central location in Bari in the midst of the "downtown" shopping area and about an 8 minute walk to the centro storico. It is a 10-minute walk to the train station in case you are making Bari your base to visit other cities in the area. The breakfast room at the rear of the lobby is a lovely, bright space. The buffet is very good and the staff in the breakfast room very pleasant. I used the concierge for a restaurant recommendation, and it was terrific. I had a double classic room (for single use). The size was small but adequate. The decor wasn't to my taste, but it did appear that the bathroom had recently been refurbished. The pillows are foam (yuk). The room was very clean. The roof deck is a nice relaxing space with good views. I was on a high floor, sometimes out of reach if the Wi-Fi, so the front desk gave me a free access code that I could use during my entire stay. It worked very well in the lobby and sometimes in the room. If you must pay for Wi-Fi, it appears to be costly (about 20 Euros/day).
