I had to overnight in Bari to catch an early flight the next day. Compared to the hotel I stayed at in Taranto, this place was fantastic. Very modern, clean with a friendly staff. The price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. Parking was free as was the internet. The speed of the internet (I was on the 7th floor), was excellent. I had no problem connecting to any websites or streaming video. The room had CNN International in English, but no other English stations. The bathroom was very large and clean. The bed was a little hard for me, but ok. I did not use any of the gym or pool facilities, but they looked well maintained.
We used the hotel shuttle to take us to the airport in the morning. We were told that the price was 3 Euro, but were charged 5 Euro the night before when we returned our rental cars. Make sure you know the price before asking.
I saw the prices in the hotel restaurant kind of high, but reasonable. Without knowing how good the food was, we opted to go out and explore the eateries nearby. I was able to get a bowl of ice for my room from the bar, at no charge, but I did tip the waiter. There is a strip mall right behind the hotel with a convenience store that sells wine, beer, sodas, drinks, snack food and a deli counter for fresh sandwiches. I was able to purchase a bottle of wine to bring home that was much better priced than the stores in the airport. There is also a pizzeria in the same building. We all ate dinner there, the pizza and beer was pretty good but the deserts were terrible (pre-made and frozen). The waiter was very attentive, I would eat there again, but not order desert.
