We stayed for 2 nights in this lovely, modern hotel and was very happy with our stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable, staff - friendly and hospitable, good breakfast. Hotel has 3 terraces overlooking the city of Otranto; terraces have plenty of cozy areas with nice outdoor furniture, where you could relax and enjoy the view. Hotel located within short...

In a fairly shabby district of the town, the hotel overlooks the pleasant town of Otranto. Parking wasn't offered in their garage, so we made do on the street - be careful park outside the blue marked bays for which you are obliged to pay. The hotel itself is nice, modern and with smart contemporary look and feel. That being...

Well placed within 7 minutes walk from cittavecchia and the fortress. Hotel is easy to find and has secure parking 2 min away. Rooms are not big but adequate.

We advised dirty and dishevelled after cycling all day, the staff were so kind and helpful and best of all informed us about the rooftop hot tub, which you can reserve by the hour (10euros per person, including a glass of prosecco). Feels really special up on the rooftop, looking out over the town. Breakfast is fantastic and the rooms...

This cute little hotel was awesome. We were in Otranto for a wedding and they were very helpful. Our room was great, only complaint was the shower is very small and the shower head kept turning....once it sprayed into the bathroom....kinda funny but certainly made a mess of water. The staff was so wonderful, especially Giovanna (spelling?). We drove from...

When we have checked-in we have been upgraded from small double room to classic one (thank you staff) on the ground floor. Our clothes didn't dry overnight as the room was very humid and not exposed to the sun. The wooden bed frame and  of mirror were smelling humidity and we coudn't sleep well at night.

Dear Sebastien, we are very sorry for your disappointing experience, but we would like to let know to all the users and maybe future guests the right version of your commentary. It was me who faced your “problem” when the “scandal” took place at the reception, while I was trying to figure out which was the solution, as all the...

The hotel is impeccably clean, the staff are always on hand to help, and the rooftop provides a Jacuzzi (which you have to pay for, which is a little annoying) and stellar views of the city centre which you can view as you sip prosecco. Spotlessly clean, although the smaller rooms are just that - small!

We were very satisfied with our stay. Clean room, nice lobby, fast wi-fi and excellent breakfast buffet (the scrambled eggs with the zucchini was fanstastic :))... One small disappointment - they make a "tourist-size" coffee for breakfast - a size too big to be really excellent. But if you are into it, you will be happy.
