Bottom Line

This very small boutique hotel combines ultra-modern common areas with tasteful use of thematic details. Lamps outfitted in coral-design shades pair with the ultra-clean lines of an architecturally stunning glassed-in rooftop restaurant, adjacent to a tiny outdoor bar. Guests have commented favorably on the comfort factor in the rooms as well as the proximate location to the port and city center. There's also a limited spa menu available in the hotel's wellness center.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Tiny boutique hotel reminiscent of a large luxury townhouse, near the bustling port of Gallipoli

This 14-room boutique venue, a combination of two 19th-century buildings, is popular in particular with European tourists exploring the rustic port towns of Salento, near the tip of southern Italy. The hotel itself has retained many features of the original interior architecture; these details are paired with an ultramodern aesthetic, including a glassed-in rooftop restaurant and a contemporary dipping pool. A pleasing mix of floral overstuffed chairs, mirrored walls, and nautical bric-a-brac are featured in the common areas.

Location

Just across from port of Gallipoli, a fishing town

Palazzo del Corso is located across the street from the port of Gallipoli, a small fishing town located on the Ionian Sea. The town itself is accessible via local train from the larger railway station of Lecce, miles to the north. (A hotel transfer from Lecce can be arranged with prior notice.) The hotel is situated about an hour’s drive from Brindisi, which has the nearest airport.

Rooms

Unique rooms that preserve the architectural charm of the 19th-century buildings

Exposed beams and decoratively painted crown moldings are just two of the attractive details encountered in rooms replete with richly-hued bedding and the occasional wall-mounted oil painting. All spaces are unique in size, interior detail, and decor; some include a stereo system and a balcony. All have flat-screen TVs, slippers and bathrobes, Wi-Fi, and AC. Guests have noted that the bathrooms in some rooms can be on the small side, and that walls in the hotel are thin.

Features

A stunning rooftop bar and restaurant with small pool

The property has a tiny, though very attractive fitness center with a handful of machines and free weights. Breakfast and evening meals are served on the hotel’s rooftop, with inexpensive local wines available from the Salento region. The rooftop bar and restaurant are stunning, accompanied by well-manicured planters full of bushes. It should also be noted that the adjacent rooftop pool is more for dipping than for swimming, given its size.
