“Beautiful, Elegant, Central”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

My husband and I are stationed in Naples and were looking for a quick weekend escape. I've always wanted to see the famous Trulli houses so we decided to go to Alberolbello. I'm usually the one who books the hotels but my husband did it this time around. I can only say, wow! what a find. From the moment we arrived the young lady at the reception desk was very professional and very nice. She checked us in, told us where to park, and took us to our room. She made sure everything was to our liking and asked us if we wanted fresh fruit for our room. In about ten minutes she was back with a beautiful fruit platter and said when we were ready she would give us advise on where to go. After getting ready, we went back to reception and she gave us a map, told us where to find all the Trullis, where to go for dinner, etc. excellent service. Our room was beautifully appointed and had a beautiful jetted tub, a luxury for us right now:-). The next morning we went to their included breakfast and it was very nice with made to order coffee, not from a self service machine but from a barista, how great is that! Overall we had a great experience and we hope to go back during cooler weather before we are transferred back to the States.

Lovely small hotel in the centre of Alberobello but away from the touristy part which made it more relaxing and special but still within walking distance of all the trulli. The hotel itself is a trullo and tastefully decorated. Breakfast in the secluded courtyard was a nice place to start the day and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Nice extras like all soft drinks in the mini bar were free and in the evenings we had some local pastries in our room. Two nights were just perfect before we moved on down south into the heel of Italy. Would recommend a stay here if visiting Puglia.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tessitrice. Nice room just off the courtyard. The only disadvantage was if you wa...

I stayed in Le Alcove in July 2013. It has a great location - very close to train station and exactly locating at the city center / main square. People who run this hotel concentrates on every detail and thus make us extremely comfortable there. We felt being taken very good care of during our stay.

We spend one night at the Alcove as part of our two-week trip to various parts of Southern Italy. One day or two days in Alberobello is probably enough, so this was perfect.

The hotel is absolutely lovely and full of charm. It's very clean, modern and located right next to Casa D'Amore (a historical site) and near the main Piazza. It is close to the Museo de Terra which showcases the history of the Trulli, the Trulli neighbourhood where people still live today, close to the main church and a great restaurant called La Cantina.

If you're expecting to stay in the neighbourhood with the thousand Trulli, this is not it. But that was good with us as we didn't want to be right in the tourist hub. Besides, it's only a 5-minute walk away from the hotel.

We stayed in a gorgeous Trulli hot with a super-comfortable bed and a stunning bathroom. Big claw-foot tub and modern amenities. The room had a very high domed ceiling and it felt so luxurious and cozy at the same time.

The breakfast buffet is very very tasty, They made us fresh coffee and had fresh juice, fruit, eggs, local meats and pastries all ready for us. In a very lovely all-white setting in a private garden. Just lovely.

The staff were fantastic. Told us the highlights to visit, offered great directions and took care of our parking too. We felt very welcome there.

Really made our stay in Alberobello special and memorable.

This was our first trip to Puglia (we've visited most of the rest of Italy). We loved Puglia. The food, the weather, and all the towns we visited.
The first one was Alberobello. If you're the type of tourist who only wants to have checkmarks in your bucket list, visiting this town will take you only a few hours (it's not Florida. It's not Paris).
But if you like to enjoy the views walk around a different town, then staying at Le Alcove, you will be in a room like you never been before.

The trullis have been restored and are immaculate. The breakfast was nice outside. The bed and bathroom comfortable. We stayed in a larger trulli as we we traveled with our daughter (11 years old). She loved it.

If you want a unique experience, visit this place. It is not cheap, though. But it was a nice splurge. Would I stay more than one night ? Not sure. On our trip in Puglia we decided to stay in different towns.

If you want "things to do", go to Disney World.

Spent two nights in the Alberobello Le Alcove resort at the beginning of July. Must say that Alberobello all in all is not very exciting (I would recommed you stay in Monopoli or Polignano and visit Alberobello during the day). The hotel is in the central piazza near normal buildings (I was expecting it to be in one of the "trulli" zones but unfortunately it was not. The receptionists were friendly but the room was not as amazing as I thought it would be when reading the comments. We stayed in a suite, unfortunately there was no shower only bathtub and the bathroom was freezing cold (even though it was 32 degrees outside). The bed was not extremely comfortable and the trullo we were staying in had the entrance right on the main street which made it a bit awkward.
Reading other comments I saw people complaining about the small reception and no real "common areas" which I must agree with, but all in all if you wish to spend a night or two in a typical Alberobello trullo I believe Le Alcove would be the best option.

We stayed two nights at Le Alcove at the end of our 10 days Pugliese trip.

Our objective was to experience a stay in a luxury Trullo, visit some of the nice cities around and of course, have great dinners.

It was the first time we stay in a Trullo, so really we have no point of comparison but I must say, the Trullo creates a very romantic atmosphere. We stayed in the Cantastorie, which was of a good size (not especially big but neither small) and features tasteful furniture and a free standing bath. The Trullo was an impressive and fun experience boosted by his antic stone walls and his very high conic ceiling.

The location of the Alcove was perfect. In the center of the old city of Alberobello, easy to access, very close to the main Trulli (some streets are really magical) and very close to some very nice authentic Pugliese restaurants (important as Le Alcove doesn't serve diner - I personnaly recommend Trattoria Amatulli on Via Garibaldi or La Cantina - you will have a good authentic - not touristic! - experience for a very good price/quality ratio).

Alberobello is a good base to explore the area around (the countryside is beautiful so driving around is quite nice to do) and from a short distance of the White City Ostuni and to the Coast (close to Monopoli, you will find Lido Sabbia D'oro which is a nice sandy beach).

Important to know not to be mistaken, Le Alcove is a very nice boutique hotel which i would recommend for romantic stay. It doesn't have huge communal area nor a swimming pool so if you are looking for that you might want to stay in a bigger resort.

If you're looking for a smaller hotel and more personnalized service, Le Alcove is a right choice - service was at all level very nice, friendly, smiling and eager to help local staff. You will also find a lot of little surprises like a fresh fruit pleateau at your arrival, some local pastries and cakes in the evening and a free (non alcohol) mini bar (which is quite rare nowadays).
The breakfast features local cheese, ham, salami, bread, pastries - classical type of breakfast in the area boosted by a good selection of fresh made fruit juice such as pear, pineapple, peach,...

I do recommend Le Alcove if you're looking for the experience of a romantic stay in a Trullo, it might seems a bit expensive but I think it is definitely worth it - or if you're willing to visit Alberobello and the area.
