3 detached structures in the charming Old Town from only 24,90 euro per room!

Santa Claus is the bigger novelty in the typical structures of Anglo-Saxon hostel, flat rental and bed & breakfast in Europe. This structure was designed with the intention to create a traveling accommodation. Our guests depending on the needs and habits have a way of being able to stay in more detached structures, so as to ensure a free day and night Tour in the charming Ancient Town.
Also, not too far from us, you can admire the art of our fishermen. Every morning, pull up their small boats at the port (after spending hours and hours at sea during the night), and cleaning products that we gave them the Adriatic Sea. Our visitors will also be present at the time of cleaning and to purchase of fresh seafood, which only here in Bari, in total security, can be eaten raw or cooked, and which are a symbols of pride and economic development and territorial integrity of our town.
At your arrival in Bari, to come to Santa Claus, you can climb through stairs or you can choose to path along the walls, so-called 'Muraglia'. Inside these Walls is enclosed the Old Town, the most focal point in which stands the most part of active business, ancient traditions, museum, churches, bars, clubs, disco, sushi bar, restaurants typical of the area. From the walls you could see the beauty of one of the longest Promenades of Italy. And the sea, in Bari, and for its inhabitants has long traditions, memories and it is the main source of livelihood for most of the families of the Old Town.
Santa Claus is the only suggestive and cheapest accommodation of the area, located just in front of City Port (Ferries and Cruise Terminal), at 4 minutes from train station (by urban bus number 20/) and at 15 minutes from airport (by urban bus number 16).

    The address is incorrect. When you follow the given directions, you will find only some door with telephone number on it. When finally someone picked up (it took me 30 minutes), I was asked to go somewhere else (they own few places in the city). When I reached the other place, it occurred, that they've lost my reservation (via HW). They offered me twice as expensive room, with no towels, no internet connection, no breakfast (although I paid for it!), broken power sockets, barely no light.
