In the coming months there will be a new luxury hotel in Puglia, equipped also with spaces to host conventions, exhibitions and shows. This will happen in Molfetta, the splendid location on the Adriatic, close to Bari, where soon works for the restoration of Palazzo Dogana, a historic and majestic building from the 1700s, will commence. 

 

The building, of about 5,000 metres sqaured  on five levels, is built directly on the sea and close to the Cathedral, over a primary medieval remains and having great charm.  The building will be restored and requalified and will become a luxury hotel with 32 rooms, including some suites, wellness centre, auditorium, roof garden and restaurant. It will host events and meetings. And the terrace, which right now plans to host a solarium for the guests of the hotel, could also have a new use, according to decisions taken by the boards. 

 

From an architectural point of view the staircase will stand out, having also two panoramic lifts made of crystal. The aim is to conclude the works in less than two years, possibly in December 2018, so as to open to the public during the first months of 2019. “So - said Girolamo Rubini, CEO of Dogana Vecchia Srl, the company that is dealing with the works and that in 2009 sealed the contract for the building - there will be a true hotel business and the necessity of the collaboration with the city to be involved in an initiative that will be the leader for tourist development.” The investment for the conservative restoration will be of about 8 million Euros.
