Palazzo de Mori is a wonderful small hotel overlooking the harbour in Otranto. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and helpful and breakfasts were great. We spent our afternoons enjoying a bottle of wine overlooking the harbour. Note that you cannot drive into the town so either pack light or ensure your luggage has wheels. The hotel will provide...

A delightful bed and breakfast. Clean, very helpful and friendly staff. Beautiful views. Will go back to stay one day and would certainly recommend it. Adequate breakfast. No parking at the bed and breakfast but they give you a parking ticket so that is not a problem. 10 out of 10.

You have to walk to the hotel as cars are forbidden in this part of the town - simply park in the street and the hotel will provide you with a free parking permit. The rooms are located in the old part of the city, right on the city wall - perfect location to admire the view. Our room was...

We had our fourth stop on our bicykle vacation on this lovely B&B! The best location in Otranto, the most be beautiful room with seaview and a fantastic terrace! The staff was very friendly and helpful! I hopp we will come back one day ❤

We booked this on the internet having never been to Otranto. There is plenty of information that you have to park outside the old city centre and walk in so everyone is well forewarned and it is well worth the walk. The location is stunning and even without a sea view, our room was atmospheric and beautifully appointed. Daniella and...

Usually when one gets a fantastic view in an ideal location invariably there is a hiccup. Not here! Clean room, friendly staff, and a view over the harbor that's filled with sailboats and small local fishing boats. Hotel located in the "shadow" of the fortress/castle and ideally situated to see all that there is to see in historic Otranto. Sunrise...

We were very happy on a romantic break here. It is beautifully situated for views of the harbour and well-positioned in Otranto for the heart of the Centro Storico (given that you cannot park in the Centro Storico and so will have a bit of a walk wherever you stay there - but a parking pass is provided). The price...

I have been at Palazzo dei Mori at least 8 times in the last years. Is a magic place in the heart of the old town of Otranto, full of history and with the best views possible. All rooms are very bright, clean with extremely tasteful furniture. Most rooms have an incredible view on Otranto harbor and see. Breakfast served...

One of the loveliest places we have stayed at. Beautiful building, with great views of harbour from our room, very nice breakfast [particularly if warm enough to take on terrace] and we found staff helpful and friendly. Cannot understand someone stating in a review that the harbour seemed too industrial. We would definitely recommend and return.

My experience during my stay was just ok. My room had the harbour view and was decent size and clean. Breakfast could be improved a bit. And most of the staff need to improve a lot. They do not seem to know good customer service. It seemed like a big bother to even ask for a second cup of coffee...
