The Zodiacus Residence has a variety of rooms -- some small, some large, all good. My husband and I stayed here for almost four months while we were working at the local university. We had two rooms joined together to form a large, comfortable apartment. Andrea and his team take great care of the place -- it's clean, comfortable, safe, and brilliantly located just a few minutes walk from the Bari Central Train Station. We would absolutely stay here again.

TRAVEL TIP: If you are flying into Bari Airport, you can take a train (5 Euros) or bus (4 Euros) to the Bari Central Train Station. From there, the Zodiacus is a 5-10 minute walk. You can also take a taxi from the airport (around 23 Euros) which is a good idea if you have been traveling a long time before you get here.

TRAVEL TIP: There are GREAT restaurants here. Stammebene is about two minutes away and has a great lunch and dinner menu. La farmacia dei Sani sounds like it's a pharmacy but it's a very good restaurant across the street from the main Zodiacus building. Great for lunch and dinner. Mama Pullia is just down the street and has great local food in a student atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable. There are dozens of other places to recommend but those three are the closest and best to the Zodiacus.

TRAVEL TIP: Your room is likely to have a refrigerator. There are several supermarkets near the Zodiaacus. Just ask them and they'll point you in the right direction.

TRAVEL TIP: You'll be a few minutes away from the Petruzelli Theatre. If there's a show or concert going on that evening go to the box office about an hour before the show and grab a last-minute ticket.

Zodiacus was a great place to stay -- particularly for an extended visit -- and we'd gladly stay here again.

We started our Puglia trip with two days in Bari. We were called by the hotel to make sure that we found the way and an appropriate parking lot at a good price. The room was neat and tidy. We appreciated the excellent location (no noise, but close to the centro storico) and Fabio gave us very valuable tipps about where to go and eat in the city.

The room was ready for us when we arrived. The managers, Andrea and Floriana are welcoming, friendly. The hotel was clean and the cleaning ladies are always on time. The hotel is near a park, and from the hotel, everywhere is a walking distance: to the old city with its narrow meandering streets, to churches like the church of St. Nicholas, to restaurants, the Adriatic Sea, banks, and shopping malls with its wide pedestrian only streets.

What a wonderful experience ! This hotel is charming ! We stayed two nights before we rented a car and headed south. The owner , Andrea, was helpful with advice and our suitcases. We had a lovely room that had two floors. The bedroom was upstairs with a beautiful buttressed ceiling. It was clean, well stocked with shampoo etc, bottle of waters etc. Location was perfect from the train station and into the old center. Andrea gave us a great map with places to see and go. His English was perfect. I know he has a second location but I don’t know where that is. The main location was great. Bari was an unexpected surprise that we really enjoyed seeing. If we come back, we would definitely stay here .

Stayed here just as a stopover on our way back from Greece. Hotel is half way between the ferry port and the train station so a good location. Check in was smooth and simple and our room was available at 10 am which was brilliant. Room was clean and tidy. Can’t really fault it.
Would we stay here again? Yes but only for a stopover between ferry and train.
