“Almost perfect (Penthouse) accommodation”
Reviewed 10 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We saw this listing and the photos, but at the time there was only one very brief review we saw. The photos looked great! Top floor, roof terrace, modern, spacious! You are actually staying in someone's private residence as opposed to just another tourist rental, that is what makes this place so good. It is decorated and finished to a high end.

This accommodation would have to be one of the best we have ever stayed in during our tour of Italy. It has three bedrooms and two modern bathrooms with the ensuite off the master bedroom. The host Francesco and Carmela were friendly, prompt and courteous.

Location. It is a good 20 minute walk to old Bari. We enjoy walking and it didn't bother us. The apartment block is located next to one of the biggest shopping streets which leads "straight" into town. Great location, supermarkets not too far (walking distance).

The living area has modern well equipped, big flat screen TV, central dining and the kitchen at the opposite end. We were very comfortable here cooking most evenings (buy the orrichetti from the ladies in Bari Vecchia). The actual penthouse I would rate 5 star. When in Bari we would stay here again without any doubt.

The negatives. (Hence only a four star)
Parking! in Bari......good luck! Free street parking is everywhere, just try and find a bay. People here park in crazy spots right on the edge of an intersection on the kerbside, right on a crosswalk! By the way crosswalks in Italy mean nothing! Stay safe!

The terrace of this apartment is HUGE but......it looks like a "work in progress" we didn't enjoy it. No seating or dining. The balustrading did not look too safe. We were on the top floor, and I didn't feel safe standing near the edge (but I guess that just me!).

There is a bond to be paid (promptly refunded on checkout). Given that this place is so good I can understand this condition.
In conclusion I definatley would recommend as we thoroughly enjoyed this accommodation and I would recommend this place (just not the terrace).
