I stayed here recently on an HF walking holiday. The hotel is quiet, hidden away in a side street but very central for getting to the coach in the morning. The breakfasts are good with a good selection of fruit, cereals, yogurts, cold meats and cheese and bread. The staff are helpful and friendly. My bedroom was large, with a...

A lovely mid priced hotel situated in the middle of a fascinating and friendly town. All the staff were both friendly and helpful. A full buffet breakfast was provided that was a good start to a days walking. No bar or evening meals at the hotel, but plenty of choice nearby and a good excuse to explore the town.

Dear HF walker thank you so much for this good review about our structure . As usual all guests comin from Uk are polite and unbiased when they decide to review their trip . The reason why we decided not to continue with the bar in the hotel is that as you checked we have only 24 rooms. It makes...

Stayed here for a walking holiday. No meals other than breakfast served so had to use local restaurants, which suited us. Long walk through the streets to get to hotel as narrow lanes too tight for coach! The bed was comfortable but the bathroom left a lot to be desired - no shower curtain, no hanging hooks for towels/dressing gowns...

Dear Trooper 1941 you're review is quite uncorrect in our opinion and it doesn't match with the real situation you found .

Stayed for a week at San Nicola with walking group. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is perfect, in the old town, just off the main Corso. Full buffet breakfast with everything you could possibly need. Large rooms and big bathroom. Spotlessly clean. We enjoyed our stay. The only negative is that the bedside lighting...

This hotel is in the historic center of beautiful Altamura right next to the Church of San Nicola. It is a minute away from cafes, restaurants, and shops.

“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.”
