Very nice Hotel just next to the old town and the promenade. It's an old style, elegant hotel, although not new, so the furniture and the building. It is far from luxurious, but still very nice. The breakfast is nice, I loved their bruschetta! I prefer the rooms looking on the street, instead of the coutryard where the air conditioning stuff is, although the first room we got looked a little bit better, than the one that looking on the street. You must try panino (bread) packed with ham (or mortadella) and grana or mozzarella cheese, that you get in almost all, even small supermarkets. Very nice to grab one while walking in the old town! The bus from the Airport (Tempesta) stops just 2-300m from the hotel (4.15€/person one way). At the breakfast you get only two kind of meat (mortadella and ham), and there is no prosciutto crudo (raw ham) and grana (hard cheese), two absolute must-haves in Italy. At some restaurants they charge you 1-3€ service fee per person.
The hotel room was comfortable and clean. It is very difficult to find, as all the locals know it by a different name. It is called "The Palace" with the locals. It is in between the port and the train station, so it takes a bit of a walk to reach it to/from either location (if you know where you're going).
This was a very lovely hotel!! Very comfortable bed and pillows and the bathroon and main room were very roomy and beautiful. The desk people were extremely friendly and helpful too!! The breakfast room was lovely as well and the food was wonderful.
Close to the historic city center. Nice, clean, real 4* hotel. no parking around the hotel (not even for motorbikes).
breakfast and kindness of the staff wall paper old fashion....
The hotel is close to the Historic old town and the Cruise Liners terminal and is within walking distance from the main shopping centre. The Hotel personnel was very helpful. The price is a bit on the high side in certain periods.
The hotel was at the center of the city and within walking distance from all the main attractions (old city, seafront) and shopping area. My room was large and very clean. The breakfast was good as well. If you are travelling by car you can book a parking space at the hotel. You need to pay extra but it is worth it since finding a free space in Bari is very difficult !
Convenient location for old city and train station. Good breakfast Very helpful staff
Breakfast was geat!!
Good location and good sized rooms
The staff, location, facilities were good and the price None
Comfortable bed and pillows, nice shower with plenty of hot water. Insufficient access to electrical outlets.
Hotel has good location in the city and nice envronment. 1. First impesion: afternoon ag 13 we had not free room and personal did not tell: seat down for a coffé, after 30 minutes you will have free room. 2. Your web site has not orientation plan how to get there from railway station. 3. I did not like hotels with full shower of water. 4. I had not in the room informtion about working time of restaurant, caffé and other services. 5. Such dirty swiming pool I did not see long time. 6. I bought room without breakfast, because your web side is not clear. Normaly I am buying room iclude breakfat. The first moment in your restaurant was for me shocking! Do you like more? My professional orientation is quality of services.
Even though I showed the booking confirmation, which clearly written that wireless internet is available in the entire hotel and is free of charge. They insist us that booking company's mistake and request us to pay if we want to use it. They should have the generousity to honor the booking confirmation and make settlement later with booking company for their discrepancy.
A good hotel near the centre of Bari. Nice gardens and rooms are very functional. You can walk to the town centre in 20-25mins. Plenty of parking available (free of charge) & breakfast looked really good. Service isn't one of the strengths of the hotel and we felt that staff weren't particularly friendly or helpful (for example we only had one towel in our room and when we called reception to get some more towels, nothing happened for 30mins. We then went to reception and found out that they hadn't even started to look for some room service and we had to wait another 20mins to get some towels - not exactly our understanding of good service...). Equally, staff seemed to chat amongst themselves a lot rather than attending to guests who were waiting at reception. But overall the hotel provides good value for money we felt.
The hotel staff including receptionists were very kind and had very good hospitality to take care of us. Thank you. The View through window from the room facing the railway station was not so fantastic.
garden hoetl staff`, decaration of the room, internet access,
very large,comfortable rooms.Beautiful surroundings inside a private Park,free safe parking,not far from the Port. Arrived very late at night very tired and asked not to be disturbed in the morning.Unfortunately,at 8.30 they started to make repairs in the room just over ours.Very noisy,lost all our sleep!
The hotel's grounds were lovely, as were there reception and lobby area. This hotel is a 20 min walk from the train station and is a 30 min walk from the city main. It has good staff and adequate rooms. It offers a very good breakfast and the breakfast staff were extremely friendly. The staff were also quite accommodating to us, in allowing us to keep our luggage at the hotel, while we explored the city, prior to boarding a ferry to Bari. We were even able to remain in the pleasant lobby area for a few hours prior to the ferry (at 11pm!), which was better then wandering aimlessly around the city. This hotel was quite far from the station and the city. It is situated on the "other" side of the tracks, to the city, and the surrounding shops and facilities reflect this. The rooms were below par for a 4 star hotel- no tea/coffee facilities, no free wifi, poor standard of bed and bedding. Our room was quite odd (we're not sure if it was because of the discounted rate?) but it felt like a converted storage room. There are no decent cafes or restaurants near the hotel, you would have to walk into the city to find these. The restaurant looked lovely but was quite expensive, as was room service. This is a good hotel for one or two nights between further travels, but I wouldn't choose it if Bari was your main destination.
Excellent hotel!!! We asked for a triple room and we got a room the size of a small apprtment! The garden and Villa Romanazzi were amazing!!!I Strongly recomend it!
Very Bad. Mr Pietro didn't Accepted our reservation by call with our Guest Card. Booking Service & Transparent about prices.
Very relaxed, coffortable, good value. Gardens plesant, interesting design and the breakfast was very good The location - we felt very uncomfortable in the streets around the hotel and decided to eat at the hotel rather than to venture out to find somewhere to eat at night.
Room was spacious, clean, quiet, air conditioning worked well, good shower / toilet facilities. Good shuttle service. Excellent breakfast!
Close to the airport with no plane noise, somehow! Very nice and comfortable rooms with plenty of room to spread out your luggage and a great pool! The spa services also looked great although we didn't use them. I chose this hotel because of the airport shuttle but was surprised when it cost 10Euro. As close as they were I expected no charge because that is standard in U.S. I should have asked in advance since it wasn't on the English website.
The room was very clean; internet in the lobby ok. As a general remark: I would have preferred a curtain (or similar) between the bathroom and the sleeping room. Of course having single occupancy it did not eally matter.
Location wise little away from downtown city. But excellent facilities. Little far from downtown. Swimming pool was not available for use.
Perfect Hotel. Location not central. Taxi = 12 euro to the centre.
Modern, clean, secured car park Low water pressure
it was o.k
The hotel staff was friendly and recommended a wonderful restaurant for dinner. The hotel looked beautiful with spacious surroundings. The breakfast was good with an excellent view of the sea. On the internet it claimed a kids playground and swimming pool, we didn't see the playground and the pool was closed to the public. We thought it would have some beach frontage but was only concrete with tables and then rocks to the water,which would have been nice to know beforehand.
clean, nice and very well kept, family oriented
Uncomfortable beds. Very difficult to get to following directions based on booking.com site.
staff was amazing and more than accomodating location on the highway was not the most convenient... although they did offer shuttle service.
The hotel itself was great, very clean, nicely furnished, little extras in the bathroom and friendly, helpful, professional staff. Comfortable bed, Sky TV, nice breakfast and good coffee. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel was it was in the middle of nowhere and an expensive taxi ride from Bari ferry port. I used the hotel shuttle service in the morning to go to the train station, but if there was a shuttle service at night that picked up guests from the port/station (which I was told when I rang there wasn't, but now I'm looking at other reviews, they say there was, must have been lost in translation when I rang), it would make it a perfect place to stay.
Clean and accomidating. Some of the staff spoke English so that was helpful traveling from America. Offered a shuttle that took you where you needed to go for a reasonable price. Nothing really in walking distance for you to go to. A car would be needed or the shuttle service.
staff friendly and helpful an easy drive from Bari but still 15 minutes from the ring road
Next to the motorway. No Swimming Pool.
This hotel and its staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. I wrote letters to the management and personal thank-yous to the staff because I was so touched at their attention and service. It may be a little off the beaten track but it is worth the effort!
Nice hotel and very kind staff
Staff were very nice and friendly Breakfast could have been more Eruropeanised
Good hotel, but little too far for the old city experience.
Nice and close to the train station The restaurant really isn't worth it
The accomodations are good and the staff was very honest to solve a problem in my booking. Due this I really recommend this hotel.
The staff was very helpful. Location was also excelent. They have on the site "free wi-fi internet". I stayed there for 3 days and it never worked properly.
Friendly staff .Clean room. Few facilities around. Close to train station and easy access to airport transportation. Free internet (reasonable quality). Could be cheaper.
Very central and convenient, had everything I needed
actually iam arrived at 10:00pm and ileft in early morning,,.the hotel close to train station. breakfast very pooooor
Nice People, next to the railway station, modern Breakfast was not really convincingly, no fresh fruitsjuices par exemple
Location was good. No internet connection for 3 nights and the second day morning the hotel staff told me that there is no internet in all Bari, but it was a lie which I cannot appreciate...Although I am an engineer, I could not have the air-conditioner working at all nights, but I did not ask the hotel staff about it...
Nice hotel very close to the train station.
Nice place if you get the location at the piazza. Difficult to find and to park
The front counter staff were effecient, helpful & courteous
not 4 star! only 3 maximum!
Very convenient for the station, very good check in and friendly staff who spoke english..Breakfast adequate. No information regarding local area or activities. Airconditioning in room temperature could only be set by reception from central control
Very near from Bari central station. New hotel and clean. Hotel staff can speak English and nice/
A very usual and common hotel. Nothing special to notice.. The air conditioning did not work properly. The hot-cold water mixers did not work well. The TV is old CRT. The insonation is not good enough for 4 stars.
close to the bus connection to the airport too modern
Staff was very nice. Room was a bit noisy.
Staff very poor in apporach to guest , fet very unwelcome in hotel as we were there for a football match
It was very good for our meeting pionts and was very close to the center of Bari
Well presented and nicely designed facility internally. In the middle of nowhere about 5km from Bari centre with no public transport links. Only accessible by very expensive local taxis and even more expensive hotel shuttle car. Hotel refuses to book local taxis only their car. 40 Euros for 4 people for a 20 minute journey when local taxi charged 25 (32 at night). An alledged 'flood' meant many guests were transferred to another hotel 8km from Bari, past the airport and no compensation for additional transport costs. Was a fight with reception for travelling group to remain in the same building. Despite the 'flood' a room was found but many others not so lucky.
Considering it was a Best Western we were pleasantly surprised of the upkeep of the facility. However, your customer service representative indicated that the hotel was close to the port--this was not the case. It cost my family over 40E in cab fair for a 20 minute drive to get from the hotel to the port! The hotel was selected based on your recommendation.
Great facilities, lovely bed, bathroom, air con just all round high quality. The breakfast was incredibly good! And the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Really worth every penny. Situation. Extremely busy road not for the faint of heart - if you miss the turning for it it's a nightmare to get back too!
very clean rooms , good housekeeping , restaurant very good price for wifi internet in lobby very high
there was silence, exept the big street but you just keep the window closed and its ok. /
size, quiet and cleaning of the room
Although we arrived very late, due to airline problems, we received the warmest of welcomes from the night porter, who also went out of his way to make us some sandwiches and a drink. It was a very pleasant end to an awful day. Surrounding district - very industrial
Very close to the Airport and easy to find
We're travelling by car and stayed in the hotel with two children. The room was spacious and modern. The bathroom was spacious as well. Free car-parking. A swimming pool. Breakfast would be better.
Excellent service from the staff. Quiet environment. No.
Very pleasant staff. Small but friendly bar. Good breakfast. We were eaten alive round the pool so moved to the sea front where all the chairs had been removed (challenge of being at the end of the season) Found the evening set meal disappointing.
We liked the friendliness of all the hotel staff. Nothing.
nice beach nothing
Accessibility to Bari Palese Airport - just a short 10-15 minute drive. The airport provided a transfer service for only 5 Euros each way. Hotel staff friendly, hotel clean and seemed very popular.
Obligatory club card that hasn't been mentioned (+6 euros per person). Even If I chose this hotel for the location-near the airport-combined with a good price there wasn't any transportation except the shuttle bus which has charged us 5 euros per person.
Very comfortable. Location good. Airport collection/delivery service very handy. Catering management by Basil Fawlty. Absolutely chaotic.
Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing The awful menu (nothing to eat except seafood), poor accomodation (WC - old and bidet not working), bad location (far from city)
The hotel in genearal was acceptable. The cost of our evening meal, which had to be taken in the hotel as there are no places to eat locally at 21.30, was way too high. Two courses and no wine €56.00
The location was ok, they obviously have beach facilities in the summer (which they charge extra for) but were not available in September when we were there. It looked lifeless and they could have included some activity. It is a large set up but limited facilities available. Internet did not work. Laundry service was very expensive. The staff were very ignorant and reallu avoided assisting us however we were persistent and still had to stand waiting at reception each time we had a question. Each staff member was trying to avoid serving non Italian speaking guests, it was very obvious. When in tourism a grasp of many launguages is necessary especiallyparticularly English as it is spoken in many countries.
location, breakfast extra charge for using the hotel beach in the summer...6 euros per day...
The staff were friendly and helpful and there is a lovely restaurant at the end of the road to the sea and just to the left, called Paradise - very good food and not expensive. The private beach was good too. The hotel promised a transfer bus to/from the airport at 8 Euros but it did not run on either of the days we needed it, so we had to use a taxi instead which cost 17 Euros each way. The hotel also promised 24 hour free tea and coffee brought to your room, but when we asked for it at 10.30pm we were told they had no tea and that we had to go to reception to get the coffee. When we came to check out they had the cheek to try to make us pay for the coffee because it hadn't been brought to the room so didn't count as free!
Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We only stayed 1 night, but liked the location near the sea. Not the hotel's fault, but we drove there from the airport in the dark and, despite it seeming to be close, it was extremely hard to find. The breakfast, though served in a room with wonderful sea views, was very poor.
close to the airport hard to find, hotel sign not clear from the street
Good service from the reception staff who spoke some english. Clean comfortable room. Limited choices in the restaurant, disappointed with the condition of the beach area nearby and I had expected to find more restaurants etc but there was very little to do outside of the hotel. However very close to the airport.
The hotel is close to the airport and offers also the shuttle service (8 EUR is charged on your bill for one way). The shuttle service not available befrore 9 a.m. No shower gel/shampoo in the bath on my arrival day (next day supplemented). Only 1 TV Channel in English (BBC World). Breakfast not ready at 7 a.m. (as stated in the hotel guide).
The location closed to the industrial aera , the terrasse for a breakfast facing the sea ,and possibility of taxi transfert room on the ground floor too much noisy due to the traffic road. Not acceptable for such level of hotel.
Location. No minibar but they did not let me pay four bottles of water I took during the night from the front desk. Very kind staff The rooms were very poor, more likely 1-2 star hotel
Clean, easy access to airport
The clening of the room. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is very poor. The room was very noise, because of the street and the thin walls. No internet wireless connection for free. Too expensive rate.
location near airport and vicinity to the sea. also good access to highways to Bari and other parts of Italy
Excellent hotel. Very nice and clean room. Free and very fast internet and free parking. Very spacious and safe parking lot. Staff is very kind and helpful. Comfortable and refreshing place. Slightly out of town. If you are to visit Bari you need a car. Breakfast was weak.
Big and free parking, fast and free internet in the room, big rooms with all necessary facilities. Late breakfast (starting at 7:30) so I couldn't have breakfast at all. Hotel is rather old and it needs some refreshment. I got an invoice issued to booking.com instead of my company name.
the architecthiural image and specialy the garden breacfast time
Very central though not easy to find, but that's due to Bari's complex road system. The hotel room looked more like an hospital room than a hotel, i.e. very spartan, but also spotlessly clean, with a newly refurbished bathroom and good quality towels. The hotel does not have breakfast room, we were given vouchers to go to a nice cafe nearby where we had coffee/tea, pastries, fruit juice. There is a very good pizzeria open until late just opposite the hotel. No parking. There is a private garage 50 from the hotel but it is very expensive, charging 22€ per night (for a small car) plus 3.5€ per hour after 8.30am. On the second night we decided to park the car at the autosilos near the train station for the whole night + morning for 15€ in all, and it's less than 10 mins walk to the hotel.
The excellent room and large balcony, good shower and bathroom, ability to check in early, helpful staff. Would have been good to have wi-fi in room and ability to made a cup of tea or coffee
Location. Would have been nice to have a bigger TV, since the one we had was minute and some english channels.
The staff was outstanding. The lobby was interesting and comfortable and the breakfast fulfilling. The room as small but comfortable and the location very good for connecting to the train, bus or airport.
