Reviewed 2 November 2012

The people that the hotel speak English very well and they are really friendly and helpful. The don't have maps for the area, but there is a map on the wall and your location for the city is great. You're right in the middle of it. They don't have a restaurant, but they do have a breakfast station available and they are right beside a terrific restaurant called Opera, I went their to eat three times and it was amazing food each time. Service is pretty good. The servers and head waiter speak English pretty well and the cost is very reasonable for high quality food.

Room Tip: If you have electronics from outside of Italy, make sure that you have an adapter to power your devi...

This is a great hotel in that it is clean, comfortable, well located, and the staff are very friendly.

There is a grocery directly across the street, and the main square is only about 5 min away.

The only reason we didn't give this 5 stars is because the breakfast that is included in the stay is simply not very good. Dry pastries and really bad coffee.

Other than that, we definitely recommend for any budget conscious traveller who still likes a somewhat fancier experience.

Room Tip: Choose one on a higher floor for less street noise.

We stayed at the Hotel Boston before and after taking a cruise. We chose the hotel because of positive prior reviews and its close proximity to the train station and port. The rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable, If you have your own laptop, there is free Wi-Fi in the room. If not, there is a computer available in the lobby for you to use. The breakfast (included) featured fruit, cereal, rolls, yogurt, bread, pastries, juice, coffee, and tea. The air conditioning functioned well. Next to the hotel is a fine seafood restaurant, L'Opera, The staff were friendly and helpful.

Hotel Boston is a simple, relatively modern place that is a good choice for exploring the center of Bari. What impressed me positively was the service -- a very friendly staff helpful with recommendations (without seeming to push the client one place), taxis, and little problems. I left a nice belt in my room and when I called a week later [after returning from my vacation], they had found it and mailed it to me.

We just spent 4 glorious nights at this hotel. Why it is only 3 stars is beyond me. The service from every single desk person was beyond superior. The waiter at breakfast was warm, charming, and super efficient. Breakfast buffet had plentiful choices to start the day off right.

The bed was "queen", but seemed much larger. Okay, the pillows were on the hard side and the shower is really small, but otherwise, we could not have asked for better.

The location is excellent. We were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go and believe me we saw everything there was to see.

I came to Bari to do family research and will return. This is the only hotel I will consider.

I have stayed in Boston Hotel, 2-3 times in the last few years. I was visiting Bari for work and this hotel is pefect for this reason. It is clean and comfy, ok breakfast(great coffee), nothing special and it could use some renovation. The good thing though is that it is at the centre of Bari, 2 minutes away from central roads such as Via Sparano, and cheaper than other hotels nearby.
I would recommended for sure and will stay there again any time i will visit Bari again.
