Best Western Hotel La Baia

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Was there for 4 nights, great breakfast! Loved it. 10min walk from the hotel to the train station which isn't too bad. Hotel was clean but we found hair on our first night in the bathtub. Good view from the rooftop breakfast.

The front desk employees are simply the best. Each one of them are very accommodating and polite. The in-room Wi-Fi needs Improvement but everything else was perfect. Hotel is very clean. Breakfast is awesome. The restaurant employees at breakfast are also awesome.

This will not be a very informative review yet I hope it will be posted. My wife and I did not stay at this hotel but we stopped in as we could not reach a taxi to get to the airport (the irony is we were going there to rent a car as the public transport in the area can be slow and chaotic). As we were not guests there, the customer rep (I wish I could remember her name)at the front desk had no commitment to order us a taxi but she was so helpful and in fact was told to call back as the taxi service had no taxis available so she stuck with it until she finally got us a cab. I hope this gets back to the Hotel and they give her a thank you. After this I would look at this hotel first when travelling back to the area.

Overall, nice experience. The employees were always helpful and nice. The room was not exactly 3 star quality, but the breakfast was very nice. If you want to visit Bari and other cities, it does not have a very good location. You have 2 train stations until Bari Centrale, where you can visit things, or half an hour with the bus. The only real disappointment was that we needed a taxi to get to the airport, and we were told that it's a fix 15 euro fee, and we were surprised to see that when we got in the taxi we already had 10 euro to pay, and after we got to the airport we were supposed to pay 15 euro and 80 cents, but we were surprised when he asked for 17 euro, it's not that much but we were told differently ...

We stayed here for a week and the hotel is in a very convenient location for the airport (15 Euro taxi ride away) and on a bus and train route into the centre of Bari. Hotel was clean and comfortable, with very helpful staff, and good food and service in the 3rd floor restaurant. Restaurant staff, particularly Alessandro and Carmine were great. Bedrooms are simply furnished, but had everything we needed for our trip. Barbara and Angela on reception directed us to the bus stop (5 mins walk away) and train station, about 15 mins walk away. Beware - no trains on Sundays from Palese.

Stayed here for 5 nights, a very average hotel. Staff are nice, especially the two ladies on reception, Angela and Barbara. Rooms very basic, it's a typical 3 star hotel. I had a double bed but it was 2 singles pushed together. Sheets are changed everyday if needed, one day mine was changed, I pulled the cover back to discover a sheet with what looked like a few spots of blood, it was red and couldn't think of anything else it could be. It's a continental breakfast which consists of bread, bit of cereal and lots and lots of cakes, this country is obsessed with coffee and cakes.. The hotel is next to a quiet road so not many problems sleeping on a night, apart from some noisy idiots above you. Would I stay here again, I probably would but I doubt I'll be coming back here anyway as there is nothing to do. Bari is a very boring city, the Italian people are very ' I couldn't give a toss' attitude to anyone. Their road manners are atrocious, all you hear are horns beeping everywhere.

Stayed one night at this hotel while travelling overland. staff all were great, free parking on site, room was clean and the hotel served the required purpose, however do not dream of spending time there on holiday. The area is drab and the hotel furnishing are a bit old and are due for a revamp.

Due to very bad weather condition in Puglia/Basilicata (Road closed, No train) I had to cancel my booking in this Hotel. I explained the situation and asked for an exception of the policies but the Hotel refused

The staff was very helpfull and nice, I can appreciate it! 5* (and the wiev is beautifull) But Our two rooms were uncontable, noisy & and every time stinky. The walls are paper, you can hear everithyng from the street & other rooms. There is no minibar & roomservice. The bar is downstairs a lőttek Coffee machine and some alcoholic drinks. Non-alkoholik drinks & snacks you can buy only from the automatic. The breakfest is too in very low quality.

We arrived late at the airport and used it for an overnight stay. Clean, decent, reasonably quiet and near sea. Breakfast ok plus with terrace with sea view. Not a place to enjoy a holiday, but very good value for what we did, and friendly service. Note that the fixed taxi fare from the airport is euro 15, if you dont know rhat they charge you more, welcome to Italy!
