“Views for dwarfs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

I was given a first floor room with a view across the harbour. The window was from floor to about 1 metre - great view if you lie on the floor or are under six years old! Other than the view the room was perfectly acceptable. I was travelling by bike and the hotel allowed me to store the bilke securely overnight in their basement.
Breakfast was quite basic and the hotel appeared to be aimed at local business travellers.

I had a chance to stay just one night in this hotel and I must say that it was a really nice experience; My room was more a duplex apartment than a regular room, with a two-story arrangent and a small kitchen. The balcony faced the inner bay with a magnificent look of the Aragonese Castle.
Breakfast is not so big as in the big hotels, but you have quite a small variety of cereals, fruit, muffins and croissants...enough for me.
The only bad thing I can remember is some noise from the HVAC machine

This hotel is right near the seaside in Taranto, Italy. It's a nice location. Service was good. My room had a loft bedroom (which I don't particularly like, but others may not mind), with a nice living room area downstairs and more than functional small kitchen. Internet worked well. The light switches were a bit weird and the outlets were not standard European, but an Italian 3-pronged outlet that I had not seen before. The front desk had connecting plugs. Breakfast was quite reasonable and they make a nice cappuccino. There is a restaurant there as well, though it was closed when I was there (probably for the winter). All in all very pleasant.

A thoroughly lovely hotel. The owners and staff were incredibly friendly, and we were made to feel most welcome. Excllent rooms, good food, lovely views across the inland sea. I would always come back here if I were ever to visit Taranto again, and would recommend it to all of my friends and colleagues.

We just stayed at this Hotel Europa location. Now being that they are a chain hotel, I had quite honestly low expectations, but as it turned out, I wonderfully underestimated this great hotel!
We had room 406- on the corner- and yes with the awesome apartment like features including a loft bedroom and bath upstairs and downstairs a kitchenette, living room and balconies that wrapped around looking at both the harbor and bay areas- AMAZING SUNSET!

Also service wise- very outstanding- especially in italy ;) seriously, we had to reschedule our trip bc our meeting got moved from Friday morning to Monday morning and we had booked online but couldn't change it on there, so we called the lady at the front desk who easily, kindly, wonderfully changed it for us with no problem!
Also when I asked for another pillow, again no problem. This may seem simple and obvious but after living out of hotels for four months, you learn that sometimes the simple things like pillows and getting more can be a headache itself. Not here though.
They have Sky TV with the basic channels and you can buy movies :)
If I could think of anything I didn't like, which really was nothing honestly, would be the shampoo/body wash was the crappy little chain hotel blah kind, so bring your own.

We left all smiles and wishing this could be our winter home. So needless to say we will return.

One of the best hotels that i was stayed during the last few travels... I say this, only for the reason it offers an amazing view of the sea... I got to stay in a room where the living room was split with the bedroom by stairs leading you to the top floor.. For 80 Euros, you get to stay in a huge spacious room or should i say an apartment :)

Best part: the room itself n the sleeping space..+ you have a kitchen (but no vessals.. )

to be improved:

Common walking space is soo narrow, give you the gitters while walking up the stairs... needless to mention the elevator, OMG!! its the smallest elevator that i have ever been... with one luggage i found it hard to enter n exit the elevator...

Restaurant: service is great, but bit pricy. not many ppl eat there.. but your in Italy and you should probably try out the Pizza's in a pizzeria..

Parking.. not available (not only in the hotel but in the whole of the city)

Internet.. u hve to pay 8Euros for 6 hrs..

A comfortable hotel in a reasonable location for access to the town and restaurants.

Did'nt have dinner in the hotel but the lady in charge of the dining room was charming.
