It is such a terrible hotel that it is not clean enough. The building needs restoration. The bathroom is terrible and it was for the handicapped people although we are not. Thus the mirror was at an angel that a man would need to sit down in front of it and cut all his face if he needed to shave....

The Central Hotel is a fair place to to stay for a night if all you need a bed and a place to keep your backpack. The hotel is dated and it has some issues. I stayed for two days and the elevator was not working, half the lights in my room did not function, the furniture had cigarette burn...

This is clearly a family hotel because the reception was more like a kindergarten. The children of the owners were crawling on the floor, their toys were scattered all over the floor and we had to jump over them to get to the stairs. When we arrived the elevator was not working and our room was on the 4th floor....

The worst hotel I have ever been. Really disgusting. One morning I didn't have water in the bathroom and I had to go to the reception for solving the problems and other morning I didn't have hot water... The reception is like the living room of the family and the stairs are plenty of stuff for the hotel.

I am very disappointed in every aspect of accommodation in this hotel. It is dirty, smelly. It is like a family home where family is living, and from time to time someone clean a room. There are too much toys and other children staff. At arrival the floor was covered with raped paper and toys. A single room was horrible,...

Arrived in Bari on a Friday afternoon of a busy weekend. Took the room for 2 nights on the recommendation of a local person. This hotel is centrally located, convenient to the train station, the old Town, restaurants and shopping. The room was semi-clean. There was a problem with water temperature and pressure the first evening. Drains were slow. The...

We immediately started on the wrong foot, as my sister and I arrived at the Hotel at around 10pm (tired and all from the flight etc), the receptionist, Pasquale, welcomed us by saying there has been a problem and a mistake, and for the first night we had to sleep in the apartments close by, which are poorly furnished, dirty...

I stayed here recently on the recommendation of a local person hence did not review Trip Advisor-big mistake on my part.I was in room in the main block which was adequate.Sadly my 4 travelling companions were sent up the road to very substandard rooms-poor plumbing/air con did not work/dirty bathrooms/no wifi/.This was a very poor start to a lovely holiday.
