4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was in Taranto for a short business trip. I liked the location, as I had very little time to see thing after work this place was great. Good clean rooms. Tidy, friendly staff. Breakfast good but unimaginative. Great terrace to sit on, read a book, drink a beer and look out to sea and the Mar Grande.

Hotel is located between main street and sea coast. Very easy access when You are travelling from the north-west. My room on 5th floor with beautiful view on the sea was o.k. Very close to the hotel is family pizzeria where is served veryu good pizza.

This is average in every way. Nothing is really bad and nothing is good. It is a tolerable hotel, there is parking, the internet is slow but works. The breakfast is average, the staff is friendly and speak English.

Good location in city centre of Taranto Very nice décoration in rooms, but your can easyly ear your neighbourg phone calls. At breakfast orange jus have only the orange color. The breakfast buffet is poor for a 4 stars hôtel.

Friendly hotel with friendly serviece and people A bit oldish but quiet ok Small rooms ,small tv but ok Good and simple breakfast On the board of the lake with a nice view an swimming pool Still jot enough

Generally good. Please see comments below. I would stay again. Breakfast good but expresso and capuccino not warm enough. Egg and bacon not kept heated and often not hot enough. Were the 2 rooms we had the best in the hotel?

The hotel staff were polite and helpful. The room was quiet except for the street noise. Breakfast was tasty. There are not all that many nice restaurant choices withing a short walk. Parking was adequate for this time of year but it could be a problem when things are busy.

Almost felt like somehow we went back in time, in a wrong country, during some communist times... The hotel looks and feels tired, the staff was a bit... disorientated (to put it politely). They spoke to us quite abruptly, the room we were assigned wasn't the right one as organised by email correspondence after booking. The issue was finally sorted after the manager was contacted. Some of the rooms have sea view and overlook the swimming pool as well. This has to be the saddest hotel swimming pool I've ever seen: no holiday feeling, no Italian charm. Just few lounge chairs around but no umbrellas, tables, shade, refreshments etc Breakfast wasn't very impressive either, with quite limited choices and almost no fresh fruit/vegetables. On the plus side - wonderful sunsets above the harbour and the sea, so ask for a room with sea views. The hotel has parking. In quite a depressing area, it's not far from the promenade and in reasonable walking distance from the revolving bridge that takes you to the old town.

Great location, staff friendly and helpful, The room has an amazing view, is clean and big, but the furniture is too old. Breakfast is good, there is a good variety of breads and fruits. Free parking and wi fi works well.

What an amazing museum! sorry I meant to say 'Hotel' the owners have manage to keep it exactly the same as it must have been in the early 1970's, Including the carpets and lifts. Functional for a very short business trip but please don't waste your own money here. Better hotels available in the area. Also look out for the 'pay upfront & no refunds' trick, so you can't escape once you have booked. Breakfast awful with disgusting stains on the restaurant chairs. Rooms functional, staff ok, best thing about this hotel is the large carpark Sorry but this was a very depressing experience for me.
