“Great hotel, odd location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We only stayed at this Hotel for one night, and can't give it a bad review. It's clean, super modern and the staff are excellent... but the location is terrible.

Albergo del Sole is on the edge of the Old Town, which in many Italian towns would be a great thing, but Taranato's appears to be 80% boarded/bricked up and derelict. It smells of rubbish and there are huge rats after dark.

There are some good restaurants in the area, that clearly people travel to visit (we found many were already fully booked on the evening we arrived), but this is not a nice area for an evening stroll along the sea front!

All I can assume is that the hotel is used by business visitors to the port (which looked quite industrial), but it's not ideal for holiday makers.

I arrived at the hotel in the late evening of 16th April after 14 hours train travel from Palermo, Sicily, and I was welcomed by the reception lady. She efficiently registered my documents for my 3 night stay, and conducted me to the lift elevator. The large room was spotlessly clean, as were the fixtures in the bathroom: shower, bidet, toilet and washbasin. All the towels and linen were of highest standard and the double bed very comfortable.
The hotel features vaulted cream-coloured stone ceilings.
Breakfasts were very adequate and varied.
The hotel is a short walk (500 metres) to the main Trenitalia Taranto train station. Also at this station on the right hand side, are 2 short platforms for the FSE train that serves small towns in the hinterland of the peninsula. Refer to Internet for timetables and routes.
My special thanks to Mr Antonio Giancola, while at the reception desk, who telephoned the private rail company to find the location of the departure station for the FSE train that serves the town of Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Albergo del Sole is a quality businessman's hotel, with a friendly attitude and style.
