“For the quietness of the garden”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Confortable hotel in a very nice garden, where you can rest from your trip around Puglia. Breakfast is great, the terrace is nice in the evening, yet I didn't like so much the choice of food for dinner : it's supposed to be a gastronomic restaurant, so a lot of simple dishes are missing. Rooms are confortable : air conditioning and wifi work well. Ask for rooms with a view on the park. As for visiting the center of Bari, it's a little far so if you don't have a car rental, do take a taxi, since the path to the center consists in a large avenue along Bari railway station.

Room Tip: Ask for a view on the park.

Dear Guest,
in the staff's name I thank you very much for the very good review and for choosing our hotel. I am glad that you had a pleasant stay with us. I just need to clarify that ours is a special restaurant with an executive chef from the Italian National Team of Cooks and where even the pastry is home made. I am sorry you did not appreciate it as much as our guests usually do but "de gustibus non disputandum est". Also, we renovate the menu every two months investing a lot of time in research and exploration of flavours, smells and presentation of our dishes. I hope you will provide us with a further chance to delight your taste as well as to host you with the park view.
Best regards,
Cosimo Ranieri

The staff are unhelpful and speak very poor English.
What 4 star hotel charges you for the use of towels for the pool?
The pool is VERY small and is in the shade, there are 5 poolside beds for the whole hotel to use! If you want to relax at all by the pool do not stay here.
If you have made the mistake of booking this hotel there is a lovely Beach Club called Wonder Beach Club about a 16 mile bike ride away.
They didn't clean out the fridge from the previous occupants.
They tried to charge us for water we never used from the mini bar.
The 'non smoking' room we booked had definitely been smoked in.
You need to ask for a new wifi password everyday... such a waste of time!

Dear Guest,
in the staff's name, I am very sorry but also surprised about your very negative review. In a low cost hotel it is normal to charge only 2 € for a towel to stay for free at a very appreciated swimming pool in the middle of a 23.000 square meter garden. I am glad that you enjoyed our suggested beach. Also, we usually do not charge products that our guests do not have and the rooms are always clean and well set thanks to the job of our lovely cleaning ladies. if that happened, I strongly apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you very much for choosing our hotel. I hope that you will provide us with a further chance to host you.
Best regards,
Cosimo Ranieri

8E taxi would get you to the property, saves avoiding a run down area .Check in and out was swift, pool nothing to write home about but the grounds make up for it. AC and internet worked well. Always take taxis if u would like to discover the Centro Storico and make sure to collect your passport after the details have been noted....was going to forget mine! to avoid this sort of thing happening would make sense that reception takes a photocopy of the documents on checkin

Dear Guest,
thank you for your accurate and overall positive opinion as well as for choosing us. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our property. I am sorry if we did not print the passport copy immediately giving it back to you at the check-in but I am sure they were very busy at that moment and had to postpone that. I seize the opportunity to invite you to come back next summer, when a new very large swimming pool and further news will be available to you.
Best regards,

We arrived in the evening after a day on the Ferry from Dubrovnik and the highlight of our one night stay at the hotel was the wonderful dinner on the Terrace. Good food, great service and the wine suggestion from the waiter was superb. The next day we had to leave for an early train departure and could not do justice to the great breakfast buffet. We will recommend this hotel to friends travelling to Bari.

This is the ideal Hotel for those exploring Bari and the Puglia region. Although the Hotel is not located in the city centre, it is only 1 hour away from Alberobello, Altamura, Monopoli & Polignano a mare.

Room Tip: This Hotel offers interconnected rooms ideal for families travelling with kids.

We enjoyed the bright, modern rooms and lobby of the Accor Romanazzi but most of all the lovely grounds so close to the train station. The pictures do not do this hotel justice---not just an average tourist hotel---quite lovely and high end finishes and the remnants of the original villa make this hotel an exceptional best of both worlds!

Stayed here as partner was working in Bari for 2 days and we stayed on for 5 days of holiday. On our arrival we used the entrance nearest the car park. Oddly this entrance takes you straight into the bar and restaurant area not the reception.
The room although large and clean does not come with robes, slippers, tea or coffee facilities and the bathroom supplies are limited.
The hotel is mainly catering to the conference trade so as a holidaymaker you will stick out like a sore thumb. The staff consequently will ignore you and concentrate on attending to the business guests. The staff could attend better to most needs if they actually acknowledged your presence instead of forever wheeling trollies around. Consideration of the guests is lacking in general.They start clearing breakfast away half an hour before it finishes, your request for more food will be ignored, cleaners will knock every door and wonder why you have not yet had breakfast at 9am, (I am on holiday) and the evening bar staff, the rudest member of staff, will shut the bar, turn off the lights and lock the doors from the terrace to the bar at midnight or just before and will not stop to advise you of his actions or wish you goodnight. The restaurant is completely lacking in atmosphere so go to the old town and enjoy the bars and restaurants there where you will not be thrown out or ignored.

Dear Guest,
I am very sorry that your perception of our amenities, which are perfectly in compliance with all 4-star standards, did not meet your expectations. We probably hosted many events during your stay but I feel sorry and surprised we did not provide the care you deserved.
I hope you will provide us with a further chance to host you at our property.
