Convenient Hotel to historical Puglia sights.

Posted 13-Nov-2014
Pros: Location. Traffic around the hotel is one way, unless the locals decide to alter the traffic pattern. Be aware of parking habits of locals.
Cons: Hotel has restrictive shower stalls. Our rooms we had 2 foot square showers. Doors barely allow entry. One cannot retrieve soap if dropped.
Location: On the sea, close to UNESCO historic sites of Matera and Zona Trulli. Close to Bari and ferries to Greece. Visit an Olive Oil Factory and old trees
Visited with family members in Bisceglie and stayed in Hotel Salsello. The hotel staff is friendly and check in through On-line reservations was seamless. Check out was seamless also. Did not use the restaurant or the bar facilities. Hotel hosts wedding receptions and other large gatherings and parking is limited but not unreasonable. Gate closes after 2300 and call button must be used on gate to gain access. Early morning fisherman are out on the close-in waters and occasional conversations will be heard. Early risers who don't mind voices from the sea.

Perfect place for families and romance

Posted 26-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
The people at Salsello were so kind and friendly. Giorgio makes the perfect espresso with a broad smile and always a funny story to tell. The management makes you feel as though you are part of their big Italian family. People have worked there for decades and are so professional in their care for all the guests. My boyfriend and I had an amazing evening on their Lido which is on the beach across the street from the hotel. An amazing starry lit evening dancing with cocktails. I wish the holiday could have gone on forever. Now I know why people keep coming back to this hotel and why the staff are so committed. Bisceglie has me under it's spell just like a local. Grazie, Adrienne from London and Boston.

Ok beach .. great location - across from the beach

Posted 04-Jul-2014
Pros: The location which was across the street from the beach and the great staff (except the owner who was not a pleasant person)
Cons: the decorations (stuck in the 1970's); a paint job would be helpful
Location: The beach across the street (although its misleading and you have to pay just to enter); the pizza place and ice cream place five minutes away
I found the staff (reception and servers) to be amazing nice (except for the actual owner)! .. They were there to assist and help with any question. I find the location to be great, because it is right across the street from the beach. However, the hotel needs some serious updating. It seems as though the hotel was decorated/built in the 1970's and has not changed since then. Even the water pipes needs to be changed, there was an horrendous odor that emanated from the sink that I had to keep the air vent out 24 hrs. The beach had the same name as the Hotel, so it was very misleading because one would think you dont have to pay to go onto the beach right across the street, but instead you had to pay an entrance fee.

Yes, we swam in the Adriatic

Posted 23-Oct-2013
It's a 4-star hotel in every way. The staff was very formal and efficient in everything they did, from checking us in to serving us breakfast. The breakfast was a sumptuous feast of pastries, yogurt, fresh croissants, meats and cheese. There was one slip up when the head manager scolded the night manager for giving us a beautiful room with a balcony when we only paid Expedia rates. He must have assumed we didn't understand Italian. However we enjoyed long walks on the beach, strolls through the most authentic old town citta vechia, talking to fishermen on the shore, and an overall ambiance of peaceful delight. After three nights we walked to the train station to head to Bari for a Mediterranean cruise.

Great value hotel

Posted 11-Oct-2013
Pros: Same as above
Cons: Being able to park underneath the hotel instead of cramming cars out in the open.
Location: Beach. Easy day access to Bari.
Excellent value for money. Nice buffet breakfast including boiled eggs and fruit. Close to beach. Not within walking distance for meals.

Coastal location but no sandy beach!

Posted 18-Jun-2013
Cons: single person balcony
We stayed at the Salsello for 2 night as part of a touring holiday in Puglia/Basilicata in May 2013. It's right on the seafront and has very good facilities as a 4 star hotel. Excellent breakfasts and lunch were enjoyed, Staff friendly and helpful at all times. Very hard bed and tiny balcony for one chair were only down sides, otherwise we had good v for m,having booked through Expedia for best price.. Good swimming pool but short on sunbeds, They have Salsello Lido opposite, which has typical sunshades (umbrella style but made of wood or similar) and sunbeds (fees payable even though you are a hotel guest!) but you are on decking with a rocky sea to enter, though nice clear water. We used nearby public beach but is stony, steep slope into sea and rocks on sea bed. (Some prefer sand). Always look on google Street view beforehand! Don't miss nearby Trani,which is a lovely interesting town in our view.

Lovely relaxing holiday

Posted 13-May-2013 on Hotels.com
We had a great time in this hotel. It is right on the coast with brilliant views and a cycle path that goes on to Trani and other beautiful coastal villages. The private beach was very small but right in front on the hotel. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, they were always willing to help. Breakfast was really good too - there was fruit, toast, boiled eggs, croissants, cheese, meat and yogurts. The room was nice and clean.

Just ok

Posted 21-May-2012 on Hotels.com
Staff were a bit matter of fact, wouldn't call it a warm welcome. The building is was probably built in the eighties and the interior decorating matches that sense. But the view of the sea from our small balcony was nice and the place was very clean. The minibar was a bit pricey, it's Bisceglie not Venice!
