If not for Angela, the reception staff... Jul 06, 2017
Two positive things have stood out in this hotel: the reception staff named; Angela and the breakfast offers! All the rest are either mediocre or unsatisfactory services. Angela is friendly, accommodating, helpful, thoughtful, kind, knowledgeable, and has the most beautiful smile! (I forgot to take a photo of her!) She did a lot of things for us from finding the metro schedule to printing a copy to booking a shuttle and recommending some places for us to check out while in the area. She is a fantastic employee who deserved a badge for "Barion Hotel Employee of the Year!"

“Breakfast is on us!” Is what Angela mentioned during the check-in process. The breakfast venue is on the sixth-floor, in a hall with a glass wall. Here, is a beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea on one side, and the other is open fields of vineyards and plantations. Breakfast offers are various kinds of hot and cold. I ate so much of those buttery croissants and the sweetest tomatoes! The coffee maker can make several types of gourmet coffee, and I was caffeinated the entire day!

Barion Hotel is dotted in the outskirts and far (20 miles away) from/to the town center. There are bus and metro connections, but still, guests need a shuttle (or walk ten miles from the metro stop) to reach the hotel doorstep. Hiring a taxi from Bari would cost eu30.00 for the twenty miles journey. Those who own (or have rental) cars, transporting will be more comfortable and less costly. The hotel shuttle service is available from the metro station in Mole de Bari with a fee. There is nothing to do here. Unless of course, you venture out in the neighboring towns like Polignano a Mare.

In web photos, the hotel is right on the beach of Adriatic Sea. I expected a short walking distance. Hence, we planned for some water activities. Sadly, the beach is on the other side of a freeway. Without a car, you can't walk to sea because fast vehicles are moving crazy. However, in their ad is a shuttle bus for guests who want to go to the beach but, there is an extra fee for that service.

The Wi-Fi connection was sluggish, erratic, and at times didn't work at all both in our room and in the lobby. The only time fast was when I used the hotel computer at the business corner. Well, it was my lucky day, because I managed squeezing in to use their computer. I only saw a single unit for a vast number of guests who might need it.

Our room is just the basic. It is not a five-star quality as advertised. The fridge is not getting cold, but much worse is the AC system. It was warm and very humid inside the room despite putting the air conditioning on and set to coldest. We called the management attention, but even after the two mechanics came to fix it, it still didn't make any difference in the room temperature.

If not for Angela, I may have given them a two-star...
