If you are considering staying in Taranto then this hotel should make your decision for you.
My wife and I spent 2 nights here recently and we can say without hesitation that this is an outstanding 3 star hotel at a comparatively budget price. The welcome was warm, enthusiastic and friendly. The passion for the hotel and their city from our host and hostesses was clear and the whole experience of our time here was one of pleasure and comfort. We felt we were in an extremely well appointed and relaxing home from home where nothing was too much trouble.
Our room was attractive and well-appointed with a comfortable bed and a beautifully finished modern bathroom. The included breakfast was tasty, fresh and we were offered further options which were not laid out but would be provided freshly from the kitchen. We were repeatedly asked if everything was to our liking or if there was anything more we required, but in a friendly genuine way and not as on off-hand afterthought, and we had proper conversations - not just "Have a nice day"!
Arriving from the railway station the first appearances of Taranto are a little off-putting as Taranto is a working industrial city and the short walk to the hotel is not through the tidiest area. However, the hotel is directly in front of you in the Piazza at the end of the bridge and stands out as a newly renovated old building among less well maintained old properties.
Any qualms we had on arriving in Taranto were immediately dispelled on entering the hotel, and we came to love the curious fascinating charm of the city and appreciate the location of the hotel for its convenience for the station and its superb position right at the start of the old city. Taranto is also convenient for a day trip by train to see the trullis of Alberobello.
We visited nearly at the end of a 3 week tour which saw us travel the length of Italy with short stays in other adjacent countries travelling by train, and this was one of only 3 visits out of 10 where we were truly sad to leave.
If you are not sure whether to stay in Taranto or not then please do, and if you do decide to stay here, look no further than the Hotel L'Arcangelo. We do not believe that you will be disappointed, and if you are then we cannot believe that you are true travellers but mere tourists and can only assume that you do not appreciate the nature of the city and the personal touches of a small hotel.
