“ideal location for wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Best wedding location ever, stylish,original,modern,romantic,elegant. We arrived here at late afternoon,weather was bad so cannot tell about surroundings. I cannot tell about rooms,either,but restaurant quality (food and service) was excellent. I cannot imagine a better place for such celebrations.

We stayed here in early September for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Histo. Although located next to Taranto, which looks like an industrial town, being based just to the South on the coast it is easy to avoid the city. There are lots of interesting places around to visit including the coast, however, a car would be a must. The hotel is beautifully appointed, the rooms are well equipped and we had a double shower with rain shower and waterfall at each end (no bath). The staff are helpful and polite. We would not normally eat at a hotel, however, the restaurant in an evening is excellent, better than most restaurants, the quality of food is wonderful and the service top class. The pool although not large, was plenty big enough, however if the hotel was full, it may become a little overcrowded. The building is set around stone courtyards giving the whole building and surrounds an historical aura. Definitely recommended for a couple's holiday.

We recently stayed at this hotel for 4 days.

The hotel is excellent, our room was hugh and the standard of everything from the bed linen to the bathroon was of the highest standard.

All the staff were friendly and nothing was to much to ask.

The complex and grounds of this hotel was an oasis. The food in the restaurant was outstanding and the breakfast was very good with a large selection.

My only comment is that it was hard to find even with a Sat Nav, although this was not helped by the road being closed for road works.We later found out that the Italian's ignored this, whereas we Brit's normally follow the rules!

Plus the sourrounding area has nothing really to offer, you have to travel further afield.

But if all you want is a luxury break, staying within the complex this would be hard to beat.

The Relais Histo' is well located to the east of Taranto. We found the room comfortable, clean and well equipped. Dinner in the Restaurant was excellent. It's only a short drive to a large shopping complex. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. It is a shame that the Spa is not open at present.

The hotel is wonderful in every aspects, room are spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. The natural surroundings made you relax when you are on the way to the hotel. Restaurant is superb for dinner and breakfast, with tasty food and detail services. What we like most is the sincere and professional services of the hotel staff. Due to a personal incident we have to stay in Taranto longer than planned. My husband and friend did tried another hotel on the second night but they switched back to Histo for all remaining nights, we stayed total of 4 nights and nothing bad I could say for this hotel. Special thanks to Ms. Daniella of the hotel, who is such a nice person, her advice and care do mean a lot to us : )

We stayed for 4 nights at this beautiful place. Even though we thought about leaving earlier to find another hotel further to the south, we were so charmed by this hotel that we didnt want to leave.
The place is well taken care of, staff very porfessional. You could see it's a very popular place for weddings. There were 2 weddings during our stay, but we were not bothered by the noise, as the hall was on the other side of the rooms, so you couldnt feel it.
The breakfast has a good variety of cakes, and standard conitenetal breakfast. I just found the "hot" station always cold, and disappointed that they dont serve fresh juices. We tried the restaurant at lunch time, the menu is quite limited, but worth trying the pasta of the day! We also had dinner once, the food was of excellent quality. And the service led by Giancarlo was superb!
The rooms were quite spacious, hotel offered baby bed for our 1.5 yrs old son. It was quite comfortable. The swimming pool sometimes got a bit crowded and we couldnt get an umbrella once, as everyone heads there quite early and it's small for the number of guests.
Overall, we found the place had great service, and good value for the money.

This is our first night of three and will probably be the last night too.

The pool area was superb, as was the service provided by Guiseppe. Regrettably, the service took a downturn from there on in. The air conditioning in the room was ineffectual, as were the front of desk staff when we asked about the feather pillows that we requested when we booked, but which were not available.

Dinner was interesting on the half-board package: starter: fish or beef; first course: fish or beef; second course: fish or beef....detect a trend?

All in all, a great disappointment.
