Breakfast was geat!!
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.
breakfast and kindness of the staff wall paper old fashion....
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.
Good location and good sized rooms
Comfortable bed and pillows, nice shower with plenty of hot water. Insufficient access to electrical outlets.
Close to the historic city center. Nice, clean, real 4* hotel. no parking around the hotel (not even for motorbikes).
Convenient location for old city and train station. Good breakfast Very helpful staff
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).
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 !
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 staff, location, facilities were good and the price None
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.
Very Bad. Mr Pietro didn't Accepted our reservation by call with our Guest Card. Booking Service & Transparent about prices.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
Nice hotel and very kind staff
staff friendly and helpful an easy drive from Bari but still 15 minutes from the ring road
Good hotel, but little too far for the old city experience.
Staff were very nice and friendly Breakfast could have been more Eruropeanised
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.
Next to the motorway. No Swimming Pool.
staff was amazing and more than accomodating location on the highway was not the most convenient... although they did offer shuttle service.
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!
We realy enjoyed our stay in Hotel Pineta in Ruvo di Puglia. The environment and the hospitaly of the hotel is a recommend. We did not experience any inconvenient !
Superior room is 40 meters from the hotelbuilding (quiet), spacious, well furnished, private terrace, electrical blinds, pleasant beds (not too hard or too soft). The premises is kept very clean. You will continuously find 3-4 people behind the reception desk. Out of the many 4-star hotels we stayed in in Italy, the breakfast in this hotel was the most disappointing. Little choice, no eggs, no warm bread, no fresh orange juice, etc), Free internet is available but the signal in our room was not strong enough, so we had to work in the lobby of the hotel. The code you receive from the hotel is just valid for one hour as from the moment you enter the code the first time, even if you don't use the internet during that hour. When you have business matters spread over the day, you continuously need new cards. Apparently, The hotel is not used to this and the people behind the reception desk show that.
Hotel is overpriced for what it offer, the same is the restaurant. They tried to charge 50 euro for 3 minutes transfer using their van, after my complaint it was free. Their reception system (very old computer I guess)made me wait more than 20 min co complete check out. Wireles internet had the worse system I ever met. It would every few minutes redierct you to other pages or to log in page.
It was the best value for money we have ever had for a short trip abroad and the facilities far exceeded our expectations. The information correctly reflected the facilities at the hotel i.e. the swimming pool was as big as shown on the web site.
Swimming pool, calm area.
very nice staff , hotel design and facilities state of the art
absolutely everything - lots of space - a hd tv on the wall - a large bathroom with a huge tub - a very comfortable bed - a great pool and food to die for!!!!!!!!
Stayed 2 nights in August 2010 for an average of 120€/night breakfast included. Some rooms with view of distant sea. Very nice modern hotel ideally located in Ruvo di Puglia, about 40km from Bari & 20km from the nearby coast. Standard rooms are clean and spacious with an extremely comfortable queen bed, a large desk area, a closet, a full-sized bathroom, a shower with 2 heads, lights turn on and off with the key card. Bar fridge & sat tv. Free wifi on request. Facilities include a bar, a restaurant, a fairly large swimming pool, a fitness room with Technogym gear, and a spa center. The staff are extremely helpful and speak good English.
Location Staff could be more friendlier. Some were , some were not.
the staff were excellent- welcoming and extremely helpful
Perfect Hotel. Location not central. Taxi = 12 euro to the centre.
it was o.k
Modern, clean, secured car park Low water pressure
Location wise little away from downtown city. But excellent facilities. Little far from downtown. Swimming pool was not available for use.
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.
Nice and close to the train station The restaurant really isn't worth it
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...
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
Friendly staff .Clean room. Few facilities around. Close to train station and easy access to airport transportation. Free internet (reasonable quality). Could be cheaper.
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.
The accomodations are good and the staff was very honest to solve a problem in my booking. Due this I really recommend this hotel.
Nice People, next to the railway station, modern Breakfast was not really convincingly, no fresh fruitsjuices par exemple
Nice hotel very close to the train station.
size, quiet and cleaning of the room
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.
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.
Very close to the Airport and easy to find
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
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.
there was silence, exept the big street but you just keep the window closed and its ok. /
Excellent service from the staff. Quiet environment. No.
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
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.
the architecthiural image and specialy the garden breacfast time
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.
It was very good for our meeting pionts and was very close to the center of Bari
Nice place if you get the location at the piazza. Difficult to find and to park
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
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.
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
not 4 star! only 3 maximum!
close to the bus connection to the airport too modern
The front counter staff were effecient, helpful & courteous
Very near from Bari central station. New hotel and clean. Hotel staff can speak English and nice/
