“Close to the Airport, Quiet and Safe”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

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!

Good size room and bathroom. Plenty of space for packing/unpacking suit cases. Close to airport. Good restaurant open till 10.30 in the evening. Easy parking. Most of buffet was over when we down at 9.30 (8.30 English time so better to get down early).

Room Tip: I think the rooms are all basically the same. A quiet hotel.

Just needed a short stay and wanted to see Bari. The hotel staff here are so nice it made the trip memorably pleasant. Great food in the restaurant, too. And the indoor pool is great and super clean--mandatory swim caps makes it even cleaner than if the place wasn't already well kept.

Hotel to Bari old town is ~€25 making it a great modern stay in an old historic city.

Very close to the airport.
Very New.
Nice and professional welcome.
Everything you need for a business meeting there is.
The rooms are clean and comfortable.
The breakfast, as many other Italians Hotel, is not so good.

Very modern and comfortable hotel, close to the airport and industrial centre's. Excellent restaurant open until 10.30pm, ideal for arrival on evening flight from Stansted. Excellent buffet breakfast to start the day.

After an excruciating delay caused by a strike, and finding ourselves unable to rent a car, we headed to the highly rated Parco dei Principi after midnight in hopes of securing a room. The staff happily obliged with a fair rate without gouging us. We were surprised but the overall size of the hotel, the amenities and the cleanliness and modern design of the room. Every aspect had been thought about and altho the room and bath weren’t palatial, the fact that each area was designed for maximum feasibility and with a true restrained design flair gave an overall sense of luxury and quality.

In the early morning, I was unable to access the fitness room with my key and required an escort. The fitness are is large but there isn’t much equipment for weight training other than some cardio machines and a few dumbbells but I managed a decent work out and was grateful that the staff was helpful and eager to help me practice my Italian (BTW, almost everyone spoke English).

The included breakfast was both abundant and greatly varied with almost any breakfast item desired along with the quintessential table of sweets. We indulged over numerous delicious cappuccini and plates of sweets to make up for our long delay the day before. All delay anxieties were forgotten thereafter.

We were charged 10 Euro for shuttle to the airport the next morning which was less than the 15 euro we spent the night before to arrive via cab. The cab driver had told us that there is a fixed fee of 15 Euro for any destination from the airport (all in Italian of course) and we trusted that this was correct information so appreciated the lesser cost via the hotel.

I don’t know that I’d recommend this hotel for a stay if visiting Bari unless you had a car but for airport convenience or a wedding (yes, there was one there Saturday morning) I would highly recommended a stay.

We had spent the first couple of nights of our vacation exploring Puglia and staying in Alberobello, but when Alitalia changed our flight time back to Rome from Bari from 11 AM to 7 AM, I knew that getting back to the Bari airport in enough time to return the rental car and get checked in would be stressful. So, we booked a room at the Parco dei Prinicipi for the night, just a stone's throw from the airport. This turned out to be a great idea!

The hotel was very easy to find and had a huge parking facility with plenty of availability. The hotel is modern and has all of the most up to date conveniences. Fast, complimentary internet, large, comfortable bathrooms with showers, and a very comfortable bed! It gave us a great opportunity to regroup from the previous couple of days and get ready for our early morning flight and still get plenty of rest before the early wakeup call.

We didn't eat in the restaurant, but the front desk staff was efficient and friendly. The hotel seems to be built for conferences and business travelers, so while it wasn't nearly as charming or unique as other hotels on our trip, for our purposes on this night, it was perfect. Excellent value for the level of amenities and room quality, as well. If you have a late arriving or early departing flight out of Bari, I would highly recommend this hotel rather than trying to find your way around in the dark!
