We stayed here for 2 nights. The location is great, less than 3 min walk (even with luggage) from the Bari Central train station and along the pedestrian mall. The property is clean and there is elevator access to every floor. This hotel has rooms on different floors of the building that is shared with law offices and medical offices. There is no reception service. The owner or operator came outside the building to meet us when we first got there. It is self catered with a coffee machine and snacks and juice in your room. However, it feels very safe and owner/operator is friendly.
One thing we did not quite appreciate is that while they ask you when you would like your breakfast (warm croissants) to be served in your room, the time they arrive could be 30 min or even much earlier than you have requested, i.e. you are still in your pjs and in a sleep mode when they arrive at your door. I wish they would just leave the food outside on a common table for us to help ourselves. Another thing is also to make sure you have cash handy. The 2nd time we checked in, the credit card machine was broken. It would have been very inconvenient to go pick up cash then or to arrange to pay the next day since there is no one at the counter.
This is a gem of a place and I would have given it 5 stars if not for its rather unpredictable service quality.
