Idyllic but sometimes frustrating
Posted Jun 11, 2013 on Hotels
On the plus side, it's very rural, very pretty, if you have everything arranged and just want to get away from it all, it's idyllic and the staff are lovely, friendly and helpful. On the negative side, if you have things to do (work, organise further travel) I found it frustrating - there's very little phone reception, wifi is limited. to just the foyer, there's no business centre/printers, the foyer, front desk and bar were deserted at all of the times I was ever there (e.g. from 10pm to about 1am one night). The decor in the room is functional rather than comfortable but very clean. Note that although I saw nothing to indicate it (e.g. price list) the minibar is not complimentary (but quite cheap). If I'd had time to use more of the recreational facilities (pool, bikes etc) then I'm sure I would have rated it more highly. Parking facilities are excellent but I'd strongly recommend a sat-nav for finding *anything* around Alberobello, the route to/from Bari is the most convoluted I can ever remember navigating!
