If you are looking for a nice place to sleep, within the ancient walls of the city center, just a couple of steps away from the main square of Polignano a Mare and from the beach of Cala Porto (about 50 mts), B&B La Baiana is your one stop place!
B&B La Baiana has been recently renovated out of an old typical house and is managed by a young couple, always available for all your needs. The hotel has a fresh look, the rooms are wide enough for a “summer stay” and all the rooms are equipped with soap, shower gel, bath clothes, etc. Our room was placed on the ground floor, with direct access from the road, but the town is so quiet, that you can hardly hear any noises. If we have to quote a con about our room was the wardrobe: definitely too small, but we were coming from a long trip around the south of Italy and we had the motorbike equipment to store somewhere. Anyway, it’s ok if you stay for a week or two and you have with you just your summer clothes. Furthermore, there are bigger rooms, some of them furnished as small flats, so you can ask for one of them.
There is air-conditioned, LED Tv and Wi-Fi in all rooms. Rooms are cleaned every day (you can even smell it!).
We advise you not to expect a luxurious hotel with room service, but if you need a place to sleep, which is clean and comfortable, you can’t ask for more.
On top of the building, on the third floor, there is an amazing small solarium: a terrace equipped with tables, sofas, sun beds and a shower to refresh. It’s nice staying there at the sunset, when the air is not that hot anymore and the sky turns into red, especially if you bring with you a cold drink and share it with your beloved. Please, note that there is no bar in the hotel, so if you want to have a drink, you have to get it in advance at the bar behind the corner! Actually there is no proper hall in the hotel, but the owner is always around or at the bar, having a chat with passer-bys. In a sense, it’s like being at home!
Breakfast is included. Maybe you are asking how it is possible, since there is not even a hall! When you arrive, the owner gives you as many cards as the days you are going to stay: you show them to the partner bar of the hotel and you can have breakfast! During our holiday, which was in the summer 2013, the partner bar was Millennium Café, which is placed right beside Porta Marchesale. If the partner bar stays the same, we recommend you to have (a part from classic croissant and cappuccino) a Pasticciotto, which is a fragrant pastry, stuffed with custard.
