This hotel is within the walls of the old city of Bari, so it is easy to walk to many beautiful sights and restaurants. Keep in mind, the hotel is on a pedestrian only street, so you will need to walk 50 meters or so from where the taxi drops you off. If you are driving in Bari, there was a parking area nearby, although it looked pretty full whenever we passed by. Not sure of any other parking options. The rooms are very nice with modern furnishings, luxury bathroom fixtures, and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was served promptly to our room and consisted of coffee, meats and cheeses, cereal and yogurt, bread, and fresh fruit. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and spoke English perfectly.
Although it took a couple of attempts to find the B&B, we were eventually helped by neighbours to locate the entrance. Menica welcomed us warmly and gave up her car space for us in the crowded street car park. We followed her recommendation for dinner and enjoyed locally prepared dishes listed off a blackboard menu. Bari was an enjoyable stopover with the historic centre and Castello being highlights.
The accommodation was quite spacious and having the small kitchen was a nice change from eating in breakfast rooms. Good coffee making facilities and stocked pantry.
"Quiet, luxurious, ideally situated for old town."
We stayed just one night after arriving at Bari airport on an evening flight, so reached the hotel about 9.45 pm. After a friendly, professional reception ,we were quickly shown to a very comfortable room . Amazingly quiet, clean, well-appointed. In the morning, had excellent buffet breakfast. (To nitpick, the coffee was not quite as hot as I like, but range of food was impressive and good quality). We had parked the hire car in the hotel secure car park overnight; cost 20 € but lasts till 1 pm and so enabled us to spend the morning walking round the old town. I would certainly use the hotel again.
The hotel is well located just outside the historic city centre, just a 5 minute walk from the Castle and cathedral, and about a 10 or 15 minute walk to the train station in the opposite direction. I stayed for 4 nights in a single room on the 6th floor. Although the room faced the main street, it was very quiet and I was never disturbed by street noise (Although the temperature outside was hot, the air conditioning was effective and I never needed to open the window). The room was small but well laid out and equipped.
The desk staff all spoke excellent English and were very helpful. There is a computer in the lobby with internet access (ask for the access code at the reception desk).
The breakfast buffet was good, though sometimes cutlery and food items ran out quicker than the staff could replace them (though admittedly I was there during the very busy festival of San Nicola).
Everything considered, this hotel is extremely good value.
