It's a beautiful old mansion right next to the cathedral and also right next to the best restaurant in Otranto. They come get you in a golf cart when you park in the free area they recommend. The city is a lot of fun.

Staff is incredible: professional, friendly, REAL people not underqualified marketeers. They try hard to speak English but I am a native Italian speaker so I can't judge if this affects quality of service due to comprehension issues.There is breakfast served by a lovely local lady. There is, even more importantly fantastic dinner. Seating is limited. Dinner is prepared by an...

An exceptional place to stay in historic Otranto. The welcome at reception was perfect with a guided tour of the hotel's facilities as an added bonus. The quality of the linen and cleanliness is outstanding. The reception staff were very keen to help us during our stay. If you are visiting Otranto spoil yourself with a night at this Palazzo.

A good hotel in an interesting city. Our room had its own large patio that was larger than the room. Comfortable. Excellent food in a beautiful roof-top restaurant, bar and lounging area. However, as other reviewers have noted, the large and alluring roof-top jacuzzi carries a 20 Euro fee even for hotel guests. Too bad, because it probably means no...

The rooms and the rooms were large and the bathrooms were beautifully decorated wit h a Jacuzzi Shower. We did not eat in the hotel but noticed that it was pretty good value. There is a rooftop Jacuzzi. However having to pay 40e for half an hour to use the facility I felt was a bit much. The breakfast had...

Beautiful seaside walled old town with this hotel in the center by the duomo. Quiet. Great views from the rooftop. Delicious breakfast. Room service was very attentive (though they were stingy with fresh towels). Unfortunately I took a star off as this is not a 5 star hotel. It's more like 3-4 star hotel - so set your expectations properly.

Location is great, in the heart of old town right next to duomo in no traffic zone. However, if you are bringing a car, the parking offered is offsite. Hotel offers to transfer you from their designated parking (where they have agreement) where you pay 15 EUR per day. Would have appreciated clear upfront instruction on website about this and...

Our stay at the Palazzo was very nice. With only 9 rooms our experience was very personalized. We were given a tour of the former palace upon our arrival before we were brought to our room. While the room was nice it did show some signs of wear and tear. Breakfast and dinner on the rooftop terrace was very nice...

Lovely 9 room hotel in former private residence located in the heart of Otranto's pedestrian-only old city, steps from the basilica cathedral and a short walk to the beach and the port. Driving your own car? Be aware that you must park and walk 1/4 mile to the hotel. There, the outstanding staff will greet you, arrange to move your...

Both the location and the service are perfect. The staff is very friendly, and the breakfast on the roof terrace is good, too. The room is comfortable, too. When I travel in south Italy, I stay again.
