Reviewed February 29, 2012

The hotel was nice very basic, the beds were rater uncomfortable and the air con did not work.
The hotel has obviously been one of a kind in its day but is rater dated now.
The swimming pool was very nice and we basically had the hotel to our selves for the 3 days that we stayed there, for the price i would go backand stay there again.

We stayed here recently as part of a holiday around the Puglia region. This was the worst accomodation we had. We asked the hotel for a pick up from the train station which they did organise but it cost 10 euro for 3km. We arrived at the hotel and the room was not clean - I immediately noticed lots of hair around the sink in the bathroom and the chair is the bedroom was covered in it and in crumbs. I then worried that the room had not just been cleaned well - it probably hadn't been cleaned at all! The view is great but the hotel itself is v dated. We went to the pool but there were no staff near there, the furniture was old, no towels, the bar area all closed, etc. It could be beautiful if some money was spent on it and there were more staff or people interested in improving the service for customers. The hotel booked a taxi again for us that evening to go into Ostuni (2km but part is a busy road so could not walk safely on it at night). This also cost 10 euro - seems to be that figure wherever you go. The taxi driver also seemed to be around the hotel a lot which made us wonder if the hotel received part of the fare. Regardless of that, Ostuni itself is worth visiting and we were glad to be reasonably near it but if going again, would definitely stay elsewhere and closer to the centre of Ostuni. On the positive side, one of the waiters was quite helpful and brought us some mini bruschetta when we were having some drinks in the bar that evening. This was however after being told that there wasn't much beer available and the wine was quite warm - it really felt like they were either winding down for the season (this was 2nd week of Sept!) or else just didn't care.. The breakfast was ok although don't like getting coffee out of a vending type machine when we're in Italy!

Stayed here for a conference that was arranged by Italians. Happy that I got to travel somewhere worth seeing that would never have been on my radar.

One of the best aspects was that they were willing to pick up and drop off from Brindisi airport, providing that you didn't require this to be too late or too early. (My friend flew in to Bari and had major adventures trying to arrive -- bus+train+ride from strangers)

On the plus side, the restaurant did a fabulous job with every lunch and dinner I had there, including two formal dinners (that went on for course after course from 8:30 pm til midnight). Breakfast was less enjoyable, but I did love the blood orange juice. The front desk was helpful and friendly.

The view from the hotel is spectacular. The restaurant terrace provides a wonderful view of the coast. They have a truly lovely pool with a nearby bar. The exterior of the hotel looks very dated, but it's much nicer inside than it might appear.

I agree with another reviewer that the rooms are small and the bathroom has the kind of grunge you find near the sea when they're not really diligent about scrubbing. I think the rooms and furnishings are typical for a modest Italian hotel, but I would say the bed was quite hard.

Overall I had a lovely time and viewed the small room complaints as part of the atmosphere.

Had reservations there but when we arrived at the hotel, viewed the hotel itself, the room and the area, cancelled on the spot and left. It's a very old hotel, very small rooms and not too clean. The Ostuni area is not too nice either as it is another port city between Bari and Brindisi. In fact, the whole area is one huge major port where all the freighters arrive from Bari to Brindisi. Italy is one very beautiful country and this area would not be on my places to visit for tourists.
