Couldn’t have asked for a better hotel
We loved like stay at Palazzo Presta. A beautifully decorated hotel right in the heart of Gallipoli with a lovely roof terrace for drinks and where breakfast is served. The view was beautiful, the staff were attentive and have great recommendations for dinner. We recommend everyone to stay here

10/10 Exceptional

My partner and I stayed for a week at Palazzo Presta. Everything about the hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel itself is beautifully designed, with stunning interior decor. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The bed was super comfortable; the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The roof terrace is lovely, affording a fantastic view of the sea. But what makes this hotel so special is the people: Eugenia, the owner, and Samuel and Ilena, the receptionists, made us feel very welcome and at home. They helped us with our itineraries and were always ready to help and advise us. Ilaria and Cristina, at the breakfast bar, also welcomed us every morning with a lovely breakfast; and the chamber maids made our room spotless every day. Palazzo Presta really is a wonderful place to stay in Gallipoli. Grazie mille e tante Palazzo Presta!

I will be back...
Beautiful property in the middle of the historic center. Tastefully decorated, new furnishings, beautiful roof bar where breakfast is served in the morning. It is The Costes Hotel of Gallipoli. A labor of love...

2/10 Poor

Hotel changed date w.out consent and charged fully
I did book a stay in the hotel 4 months prior arrival. One week before I was informed that they have cancelled my reservation and replace with new dates (w.out my consent). So I had to book another hotel on short notice and higher cost. To make the thing worse the hotel still charged me for the room. So I can only warn you about this hotel as you might find yourself paying for a room you did not book!

Oase in der Altstadt von Gallipoli
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt im Palazzo Presta. Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und bekamen gute Tipps und Ideen für die Besichtigung von Gallipoli. Unser Zimmer war sehr ansprechend gestaltet, verfügte über alle nötigen Annehmlichkeiten, ein bequemes Bett und eine Terrasse mit zwei Liegebetten. Das Frühstück und Abendessen im Hotel waren ausgezeichnet, in der Nähe gibt es aber auch viele gute und ansprechende Restaurants. Das Hotel verfügt auch über eine sehr ansprechend gestaltete Bar auf der Dachterrasse. Der vom Hotel empfohlene Parkplatz (Parcheggio Porto) ist Fuss gut erreichbar. Gerne kommen wir wieder einmal und empfehlen das Hotel weiter!

Great hotel
Nice hotel in busy gallipoli. Hard to find parking. Breakfast should have more fruits and vegetables and cheese. It smelled mold and was mold in the roof in our room that was a bit disappointing.

Fancy Hotel an sehr guter Lage
Ein sehr modernes Hotel mit sehr cooler Einrichtung. Das Zimmer war sehr schön, nur ein bisschen dunkel und der Schlafraum eher klein. Bzw. nahm das Bett den meisten Platz weg. Das Frühstück war ebenfalls sehr gut und die Dachterrasse ein echter Hingucker. Das Personal war stets sehr hilfsbereit und half auch gut mit Strand- und Restaurantempfehlungen. Die Lage war ideal – nah zum öffentlichen Parkplatz, zum Strand und zur Altstadt.
