    Not a Hotel

    This is not really a hotel – it is a room-letting service. The business has numerous rooms and apartments scattered around the Centro Storico of Locorotondo. After checking in at a central office, you have to walk a distance to your allocated accommodation. Your luggage will be taken there for you. If you came by car, you will have to find a car parking space outside the old city. All this palaver takes a fair amount of time. On checking out, you reverse the process. Breakfast is served in a café central to the old city; it was a poor meal with little choice or quality. You will be given a map to find all the locations. The Owner of the business was present in the office when we checked in, but he did not as much as look up or acknowledge or greet us. The whole process felt impersonal. The apartment we were allocated had very steep stairs, and I understand many are like this. This might not be suitable for somebody with mobility problems, or for elderly persons. It was, however, beautifully furnished and well appointed. Sotto LC will give you a short list of restaurants they recommend. Some of these appear to be owned by the business. I recommend you use your own judgment to find a restaurant – there is a great choice in this town.

    No issues

    Loved Locorotondo and the distributed apartments of Sotte le Cummerse were right in the charming and quiet old town. Staff was friendly and helpful. Laundry service was excellent!

    Breakfast, taken by arrangement at a local café, was a not up to scratch - stale bread one day, croissants exhausted by 8.00 a.m. the next. We persuaded the keeper to send out for more, but he had to be prompted.

    Charming concept - you stay in one of a number of apartments in ancient buildings in the historic heart of Locorotondo, each with its own character. Ours was pleasantly decorated, more than adequately equipped, and had the merit of a balcony with view.

    Beds were a little hard for my liking.

    Gorgeous location, lovely apartment with beautiful views across the town. The roof top terrace was great. The little cafe around the corner was a delight for breakfast each morning.

    The air-conditioning machine was out of date, made a big noise! The property type should be more clearly announced; it was a collection of separate 14 apartments and it seems that the number of staffs is so small that they cannot control each apartment. I could not find who is most responasible.

    We had to wait to check in and check out as reception was closed, apart from that was all good!

    We had a flat on the edge of the old town ('La Fontana'). Was well equipped, beautifully decorated and very homely. Location was perfect, parking was nearby in a square, seemed fine.

    Great location, okay lodging, lots of noise.

    The apartment we had was nice but the decor was slightly outdated. Our biggest issue though was the noise - during the day you could hear people walking above, and at night as well. You could hear the church bells ringing so loudly every 15 minutes from 6 AM on, as if they were right there in the apartment. Overall there was just no sound barrier - we could hear the workers in the office next morning as well, and the noise overall made it hard to sleep or have privacy. But - I'm sure each room is different, as this "hotel" is really a number of rooms scattered throughout the old town.

    The location could not be beat - on a charming street in the center of the tiny centro storico.

    The breakfast is served in a nearby cafe and could have been more varied.

    Though very attractive, the Centro Storico is small, & if one stayed any length of time one would want to make excursions - & there may not be that many from Locorotondo. Car parking usually in the square in front of the Sotto le Commerse 'reception', but has to be elsewhere on market days

    Sotto le Cummerse has a number of properties in the nice white-painted Centro Storico. We were lucky in having perhaps the best sited, one within the actual city wall, with a patio looking out over the countryside. Nice breakfast in a near-by café. We could also have cooked in the flat

    Bathroom was rather cramped in the apartment we stayed (Fontanella). There are not many windows in the apartment. The reception was not staffed at all times. No wi-fi, which was understandable since the "hotel" consists of several separate apartments spread throughout old town.

    Very helpful staff who helped out with transportation and gave other tips!! Good location in atmospheric historic part of town. Tasteful furnishings. Clean and spacious rooms (except for bathroom), good for preparing own meals. Breakfast is Italian style but more plentiful than expected (yoghurt, cereal, croissant, cake, bread with jam, coffee). A comfortable stay!
