“Good but lower than the expectations”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

There were some good and some bad things about Moderno. Good: breakfast, clean rooms. Bad: the general equipment, the facilities. Old fashion Air conditioning working only after 3 at midday. There was a strange way that lights used to work in the corridor (you had 3 seconds to open your room with lights switched on when you go out of the lift). We had problem with italian power sockets but the staff provided us with adaptors. Satisfying Wifi connection

Dear guest,
Thank you for your review! We appreciate the positive things you wrote about us and we are sorry for the bad ones; anyway, we would like to underline that air conditioning functions several times a day and that the hotel exists since one century. We are trying to do our best every day!

Hoping to welcome you again with a lot of news!

Best Regards

the Staff

We stayed at hotel Moderno with a family consisting of two adults and two teenagers. The hotel has a good location, about a 10min walk from the old centre. The rooms are quite clean and large for a 3-star hotel. Breakfast is also good.

What really made our stay complete were the staff, especially receptionist Maximo. He helped us several times like when we had some trouble with our car rental, showed some nice places to visit and advised a restaurant which was really great. His service could be an example for every hotel employer.

When you visit Bari, hotel Moderno is a good hotel for a decent price to stay.

We chose hotel Moderno because it was very near the railway station (5 mins walk), as we were planning several day trips out of Bari. The hotel does not pretend to be any more than a 3 star, but surprised us by a very spacious room (actually rooms). We had a "superior room" with a separate, rather big bedroom, a room with a spare bed and a small eating table and chairs, a small kitchenette and a quite ok bathroom. There was a fridge where you could put your own stuff and also a possibility of cooking on two electrical plates. We had a small balcony, perhaps not with the most beatiful view, but it is no nice being able to go outside instead of being trapped in the hotel room in the afternoons or evenings. The "continental breakfast" also kept more than it promised. There were only one sort of (white) bread, but this was fresh every morning. There were also fresh ham, salami and cheese, a wide variety of the inevitable cakes, cereals and yoghurt. The best of all was that the coffee was very good ( I think it was Nespresso), not from those terrible instant machines. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. If I should point out some negatives, the air conditioning was so noisy that we chose to sleep with the windows open instead (at the price of some insect bites and being awakened by the early morning trains) and that the price was rather high, but I have read here on TA that hotels in Bari are rather expensive. All in all, we would have chosen it again if we were to go to Bari.

we were staying three nights there the other week and were totally happy. room spacious, clean, same thing for the bathroom, quiet, super location, reception throughout charming and helpful. price/quality perfect.

cannot speak for breakfast, being swiss we dislike the sweet italian breakfasts. no harm meant.

however we have a restaurant for you we can only praise, five minutes on foot from the hotel, if you are tired or.., opened lunch and dinner.

A nice and peaceful hotel, close to the railway station and right in the city centre. Breakfast might have been better, if considered the highly reputable local tradition in pastry! The room was not noisy, even if the hotel is located in a trafficked street: windows are well isolated.

The hotel is five minutes walk from the station. Coming from the airport bus stops right across the street from the hotel. Rooms are large and comfortable. The furniture is a little unusual, but not annoying. The staff is friendly and smiling. Nearby are supermarkets and local restaurants very good. From Hotel Moderno get the old city in 15 minutes relaxing walk.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are quieter and with a view of palm trees and a church steeple
