We chose to stay at the Parco Dei Principi in Bari to avoid an early morning rush to the airport. Because we had heard reports of crime in certain parts of Bari and we didn't know the areas that were better for American tourists we chose this hotel.
The hotel is very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff speaks many languages so it made asking questions about the airport, etc. very easy. The rooms were plenty large enough for us to unpack/repack bags in preparation for our flight.
The pool was spectacular and the spa services - if you choose to use these - looked AMAZING!
A few things to know...there is nothing much close by so you will want to plan on eating in the restaurant which is fine (food was average but good) or taking a cab. Also, I had mistakenly assumed the shuttle to the airport was free but it was actually 10EU - not a big deal - just a bit of a surprise.
If you are looking for a place for a short stay in Bari that is close the airport - give it a go!
