18 Gorgeous Hotels in Ostuni • for Every Budget! (2024)

A small town with white buildings and a view of the ocean.

Ciao amici! Let’s get right into today’s topic: a very well-researched post with the best hotels in Ostuni! I just came back from a trip there and also looked on the web for hours to find some unmissable places! There were so many, so I also made a bonus with the top hotels near the beach!

Don’t worry, I’ve already ordered the hotels from most to least expensive so everyone can easily pick their category and look for their favorite! But once you do find that Italian dream spot that you’ve always wanted to stay in, I recommend booking it fast!

Yep, believe it or not, the White City, which dates back to the Stone Age, is one of the most popular in Puglia, and the best accommodations will sell out so fast, especially in June, July, and August (the high season).

If you are in a hurry

BONUS 2: Top 3 masserias in Ostuni

For anyone who has no clue what a masseria is (I was in your shoes before going to Puglia), these places are traditional farmhouses that usually date back to the 16th century! Now, most of them have been turned into modern hotels but still keep their charm!

There are so many in Ostuni, so I thought I’d gather the best ones! I ordered them from most to least expensive, and the prices start from €165 to €275.

Lecce is probably the best area if this is your first visit. But I would also recommend Ostuni, Polignano-a-Mare, or Monopoli! You can learn about Lecce in our article on where to stay in Lecce.
