The air conditioner is programmed to go off at night and we were stifling. Staff refused to assist.
The staff was outstanding. The lobby was interesting and comfortable and the breakfast fulfilling. The room as small but comfortable and the location very good for connecting to the train, bus or airport.
Very central though not easy to find, but that's due to Bari's complex road system. The hotel room looked more like an hospital room than a hotel, i.e. very spartan, but also spotlessly clean, with a newly refurbished bathroom and good quality towels. The hotel does not have breakfast room, we were given vouchers to go to a nice cafe nearby where we had coffee/tea, pastries, fruit juice. There is a very good pizzeria open until late just opposite the hotel.
No parking. There is a private garage 50 from the hotel but it is very expensive, charging 22€ per night (for a small car) plus 3.5€ per hour after 8.30am. On the second night we decided to park the car at the autosilos near the train station for the whole night + morning for 15€ in all, and it's less than 10 mins walk to the hotel.
The excellent room and large balcony, good shower and bathroom, ability to check in early, helpful staff.
Would have been good to have wi-fi in room and ability to made a cup of tea or coffee
Would have been nice to have a bigger TV, since the one we had was minute and some english channels.
