Hotel Colle del Sole, opened in August 1982 by the DE CARLO Family, is located in a semi-central position,at only 500 metres far from the two main Trullo's zones, called 'Aia Piccola' and ' Rione Monti'. Since December 1996, they have been accredited patrimony of UNESCO World Heritage. The city centre is very easy to reach, either by car or on foot. Facing the Hotel, there is an ample parking for cars, coaches and motorcycles. The Hotel has room, all tastefully furnished in a modern style and equipped with all the comforts, assuring an excellent stay for all the guests. The Hotel's communal areas, as the the bar, the restaurant founded in 1996, the garden, the wine bar/shop 'Sciarabà" and the meeting room, have been designed with the well being of our guests as a main priority. The last modifications to the Hotel date back to the 2015 with the opening of the open air swimming pool, situated in the garden which covers an area of approximately 1000 square metres.

The rooms are okay, there is an outdoor pool. But there are negatives; there is a hotel bar but closed, the staff in the restaurant have trouble understanding what was asked when spoken to in English. When taking drinking orders at a table with 4 persons, after writing down one of the guests drink, he want to walk away instead of writing down the other guests wishes. Positive is the distance to the Trulli houses, just about 400 meters.

This hotel is not fancy, however the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The service is excellent and the staff is very courtious. This hotel was our second stop in visiting all of Italy, Alberobello is a beautiful place to visit and the service offered by the staff made it an enjoyable stay. The food is good to excellent, the presentation of each course is done with taste, there is pride in what they offer to their customers. I preferred this hotel better than some other 4 star-hotel that we stayed at later date on our trip. The warmth and kindness of the people was well worth the detour to Alberobello, the sites to see are also great!

We stayed in this hotel for a week as a central base to discover Puglia.

The position of the hotel is at a noisy intersection opposite the bus station but it is only a 10 minute walk into the centre of the trullis in Alberobello village.
There is no village ambience at all.

There are no views at all - we were allocated a room in the new annexe at the rear and were lucky to have a low floor room at the hotel end which meant we had several thick walls as insulation against the noise of the road.
Other guests staying in 1st floor rooms or at the 'top end' suffered dreadfully with room noise.

Room is spacious and extremely clean with fresh linen every day. The bathroom is also well fitted, clean and spacious. The shower is rather old fashioned (for a new annexe) with sort of corrugated folding screen.

We expected better than curtains over the wardrobe space and there are no drawers at all.
Towels are adequate - a bit thin but large enough.
Bed is very large and extremely comfortable - though the grey shiny 'bedspread' is possibly the strangest ever seen.
We had a view of the pool and a balcony and a door which doubled as a window.

(Not all rooms have a balcony)

There are a lot of steps around the complex - some without hand rails.

The staff were very friendly but they haven't quite 'got it' with what discerning holidaymakers want.

Take your own pool towel or use your shower towel. There is also a gangly youth who acts as the 'pool police' forcing people to have a shower even if they have only just got out of the pool and are going back in again!
Mature much-travelled holidaymakers do not like being publicly berated by someone barely out of short trousers & with such a surly expression.

There are only 8 loungers and 4 recliner chairs - woefully inadequate and led to tantrums while we were there. Someone put their stuff on a lounger and went off to change into swimwear and within less than 2 minutes someone came along and chucked their stuff off and claimed their lounger.
During the late afternoon one hardly dare go in the pool for fear of losing the lounger :-(
Not good at all.

Meals are from choices on a set menu - woefully out of date and quite ridiculous to see waiters walking around haphazardly plonking plates down on any random table. One night the choice was pork stew or ham omelette........erm therefore pork or pork.......and pasta pasta pasta........
They will serve an alternative but it takes some doing. Vegetarians are a complete mystery in this hotel. They seem to stick pork in everything :-(

Quite why this hotel don't have a buffet and let guests help themselves instead of having a rigid sit down time of 7.30pm is beyond me. And don't expect to get served at 7.30 - that is drink ordering time. One night the first plate of pasta didn't leave the kitchen until 8.10pm :-(
Personally we thought the food was repetitive and uninspiring and had we not paid half board we would never have eaten in there again after the first evening. The service was desperately slow, the portions extremely small, very little in the way of vegetables (despite a market FULL of wonderful fruit & veg!) and huge long waits between courses.

The chairs are very small seated and uncomfortable and prepare to be sat on them for 2 hours or so.
We also had to sit with random strangers as it was not possible to have a table for two. Luckily we palled up with 3 other couples and tried to keep our table for 8 to ourselves.....it didn't always work.

I am sure there must be better places to stay in Alberobello where there are more sunbeds, a quieter location, pool towels, a varied a la carte menu or buffet and no pool police.

In summary: it was very clean, it was noisy near the road and the entire dining room situation needs a total rethink.

Would I go there again? No I don't think so on balance.
Would I recommend it? Probably not.

Excellent location as able to walk into the village in less than 5 minutes.
No scenic views from the rooms however the back rooms can see the pool.
Good pool, cleaned everyday. Our double bedroom was a good size and kept immaculately clean by the staff, with fresh towels each day. Our only concern was the mould growing in the glass layers of the shower screen... grey, black and possibly ready to crawl out by itself. A shame as the rest of the ensuite was kept spotless.
Breakfast , a good selection, continental style but eggs fried with frankfurter sausage available if you dare!!!(usually cooked about an hour before you arrive in the restauraunt)
Evening meal pretty awful, except for the pasta which was conservative in its amount, but I'd advise eating out as there are some fabulous little places in the village at reasonable cost and with far more ambience than here.
As to the waiter......he kept us amused with his dour, solemn face and grumpy attitude to just about everything he was asked and took great pains in laying out the tables one item at a time which took forever.No safety boxes in rooms,and if you use the hotel safe you have to wait until the manager is in to get your stuff out, not very convenient.
A good value 3 star and well worth it if you are only staying a few days to visit the area but not really a place to stay for a weeks R and R.

My friend and I found that this hotel and its staff were outstanding and we are very happy that we discovered them completely by chance. We drove into Alberobello and happened to see them up the hill and decided to check them out. It was the best decision. The room was great, the price reasonable and the staff was truly one of the best we had encountered during our three week stay in southern Italy. Paolo was especially helpful with planning our day trip and gave us excellent information. Andrea was also very helpful and importantly, very enthusiastic and really showed that he enjoyed his job and meeting and taking care of the guests. I hope to stay at this hotel again if I ever have the opportunity to return to Alberobello. I shall recommend it highly.

The modern room we were given was great - for once a reasonable amount of space to put all our luggage and the bathroom was a good size for an italian hotel. The major problem though was that the modern section of the hotel we were in was beside a very noisy road into Alberobello so we would not recommend staying here if you are a light sleeper. The food is better if you walk into the main tourist section of the village and eat at one of the restaurants Michelin recommends. The location of the hotel is excellent and there is a swimming pool if you like to relax.

This is a small, family owned hotel which is well equipped to support a relaxing stay. Many guests stayed just one or two nights as this hotel is really well situated to vista the Trulli of Alberobello.

We stayed a whole week and visited other areas, using the hotel as a base. The pool is really lovely and clean and there was never an issue getting a lounger; we sometimes had it to ourselves.

The rooms were of a good size, very clean and had everything we needed, including a small fridge which was really helpful. Good WiFi once we realised we could also use the hotel’s piscina (pool) WiFi (which was needed in the superior, garden view rooms).

The hotel can cater to large tourist groups, but they sweep in quietly late at night, eat breakfast and leave early, so had little effect at all on guests staying around the hotel. Had no impact on us what so ever, (plenty of space & food at breakfast etc).

We ate in the hotel restaurant each night and had breakfast every morning and I can’t rate the food or the waiters highly enough..... Fantastico! ....it really made our holiday. 😋

Has good amenities near by... a wealth of restaurants, shops and cafe’s in beautiful 😍Alberobello (a 5-10 min stroll to the centre). Also has a small supermarket and cafe’s / pastry / ice cream shops very close by (check opening times as they have typical Puglian afternoon closing).

We had a couple of special requests during our stay and the staff were so helpful and accommodating. Generally in the region, English is not always spoken, but we didn’t have any issues in Alberobello town and the staff at the hotel have great English. (We should learn Italian really- our fault).

Plenty of parking for cars.

Puglia is generally a quiet, quaint area and a hire car is really a must for getting around as travelling from place to place would be tricky to negotiate without one. We loved the relaxing lazy days; not be an area if you like a very busy, sociable holiday with lots of things / entertainment for kids.
