- Fantastic location within a few minutes' walk from Ostuni's centre

About the location
Visible for miles around, Ostuni is a gleaming tumble of painted buildings and dramatic brick-built palaces, perched almost entirely on a steep hilltop. Ostuni’s whitewashed centro storico lends the town its second name as the ‘White City’ of Puglia, and there are few places as atmospheric found anywhere else in the region. Most visits begin with a walk through the old town, towards the mighty duomo towering high above the Puglian plains. It’s a steep ascent, but one that’ll take you through some of the most magical of Ostuni’s streets: think white-walled passages with uneven floors and pretty cafes tucked into sheltered courtyards. The views at the top are well worth the climb, and the beautiful 15th-century cathedral with its 24-pane rose window is quite a sight, too.
The town’s bar and restaurant scene is richly authentic, with quaint trattorie serving local favourites such as orecchiette – a small, ear-shaped pasta that’s generally eaten with vegetable-based sauces and often served alongside a handsome house red. For true wine connoisseurs, one of the local wine tours is a must-do, taking visitors into some of the region’s finest wineries.
Car hire is recommended for this property. Ostuni is 58 miles from Bari airport and 23 miles from Brindisi airport. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.

I stayed here for three nights in July with my wife, in one of the “romantic” rooms. On the plus side, the hotel building and lobby is beautiful, it has a great location, just a 10 minute walk from the old city, and the breakfast is a solid 8/10. Having eggs made to order is a nice touch.
Unfortunately, that’s where the positives end. Our room was tired looking, with discolouration on the walls in a number of places. It was also tiny, and I mean tiny within the scope of what can be expected in Italy. We barely had enough room for the two of us to move around with our luggage. The shower was also tiny, and didn’t drain properly. The view of the old city was pretty, but didn’t begin to make up for the deficiencies of the room.
Even though tripadvisor advertises a rooftop terrace, we found the roof completely empty. A lot of missed potential there.
On the whole, the hotel has a lot of potential, but is not in any way worth what it charges. Would absolutely not stay here again.

From the time our group of 7 checked in we were made to feel so special! The hotel arranged an outdoor cocktail party for us one night when we chose not to go out to dinner, massages in their “cave” spa were fabulous. The hotel was so clean, smiling faces everywhere. Have not ever had such great hotel experience, no matter the cost!
