The daily cleaning is strictly limited to making up the beds. The linens were changed once during our eight days stay, and still I needed to ask to change the ones in the second bed we had. The stone floors had a clean appearance, but after walking without shoes, our socks looked like after walking in the mud.
The breakfast is really minimal. One cake (fresh), two sorts of jam and butter, and some old, dry biscuits. For one day could be ok, but for a one week stay, it gets to be quite monotone.
You better speak some Italian, as it is little chance you will manage to have a satisfactory conversation in another language.
We had the bad surprise to not having enough hot water for the shower. We were explained that there were 30l, while it was hardly enough for one shower. We needed to arrange, as to shower one in the morning and the other in the evening, or at least with a large enough break between the two showers, as to avoid to stay with the foam on, waiting for the boiler to warm up again.
Definitely not much value for the money.
Cosima, the host, was really nice and welcoming. Still, except the breakfast time, it is not really possible to reach her in case of any issue.
The little studio we had was nicely decorated and benefited of one of those vaulted ceilings, so tipical for Monopoli.
The "old" towels that some are complaining about in their reviews are just supposed to match the rest of the decoration, and made of that ecru cotton usually used for kitchen towels: a question of taste.
