16 BEST Hotels in Otranto, Italy for ALL Budgets (w. Prices!)

A swimming pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas.

Jump right in, and let’s set on a quest to find the best Otranto hotels together! I’ve been to Otranto myself, but I also did a very thorough research on the web and came up with a fabulous list of places. I ordered them from most to least expensive so that everyone can find their favorite!

As I recently came back from a trip to Otranto, I’m so happy to share with you some cool tips and, of course, help you find the hotel of your dreams!

Beware though! Otranto is one of the most popular places in Puglia, and especially during the summer season, the hotels book out super fast. Actually, during June, July, and August, you can expect to pay an extra €50 to €100 as the prices are much higher than compared to the low season (November, December, January).

That’s why I recommend booking your favorite hotel in advance, which may help you save a few euros, too!

Quick Picks for Your Stay

Don’t worry if you can’t read the whole post! Just check out this amazing short list of the best Otranto hotels:

1. Baglioni Masseria Muzza – for a relaxing holiday

Treat yourself to a few days of unlimited Italian glamor and retreat to a tranquil garden hideaway where you can unwind, unplug, and basically live your best life! Otranto’s masserias are incredible, and this one makes an exception as it features a relaxing pool and spa amenities.

Spend your mornings in rooms with timeless designs, chic decors, and a lovely beige and white color palette (some also have a fireplace). Start your morning with a delicious Pugliese breakfast and then head to the spa for a nice Turkish bath, or head downtown to visit all of Otranto’s attractions (having been there already, I highly recommend visiting the Cathedral)!
