Located in the middle of the old town of Altamura in the greek area called " claustrum greco" the structure has a total of 24 rooms divided in standard, junior suite and 1 apartment plus a 3-4 bedrooms economy room. The structure has been realized by restoring one of the oldest palace in town and dated 1741. How to reach our hotel: once in Altamura put on your GPS the adress "via castello", then just follow the black and yellow panels along the streets reporting our name.Once in front of the hotel we'll take care of your car for free.Please do not put the adress via Cagnazzi in the gps cause the area was not reported well by google

I wanted to like the Hotel San Nicola, an old hotel and possible former mini-villa located in the core historic center of Altamura that offers free parking. First, the service is mediocre. We arrived early, our bags were stored in an open side room for the entire day. We

What a find ! After visiting Altamura for business & learning of the Local ‘Festival Francis’ I knew I had to change my travel plans and return — I was told it was going to be almost impossible to find anywhere near the old town due to this 3 day festival But At the Last

An ex- 18th century palazzo. Quirky rooms, all different, fairly dark in tradition with the age. Wonderful location, 100m from the cathedral. Breakfast basic but OK. But what really makes this are the very helpful staff.

Nice hotel in the centre of Altamura reachable by car, the hotel offers a free valet parking service. Very good professional service. The property is in need of a refurbishment to regain its former glamour.

il ristorante dell'hotel è all'altezza?
Buongiorno , il ristorante è stato operativo fino al mese di giugno 2016 . Attualmente , la vecchia proprietà ha deciso di non proseguire l'attività. La formula hotel-ristorante non ha piu' molto senso , specie su mercati come quello dei borghi quali Altamura. L' hotel ha comunque almeno 3 possibilità da noi selezionate nel raggio di 200 mt a piedi , ed e' quello che il 99 % della clientela richiede : qualità , piatti tipici e tradizionali , costi più che dignitosi . E' suff pertanto richiedere alla nostra concierge le informazioni su come trovarli e-o cosa poter selezionare anche in base ai propri gusti. Tra le ns proposte ,almeno una possiede una cucina specifica per celiaci .

"As it is in the middle of town there were no rooms with a view. there was local street noise during the evening but not too intrusive"
"Our room was above the road to the right of the hotel as pictured, on the first floor."
"None of the rooms have views - our room 103 had the biggest bathroom I have come across with very tall ceilings in the bedroom and bathroom with floor to ceiling windows in both rooms."
"I had 107 at the back of the hotel but as the hotel is in the centre of an old town there is a level of noise where ever you are."
"We went to Bari for a friends wedding. Some guests were booked into tiny rooms....I didn't see the room so I can't compare or make a comment on the size and feature. I was on the second floor. Don't expect any fantastic view from your bedroom windows."
US$ 70 - US$ 90 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
