This Bed And Breakfast is amazing. The quality of the bedrooms and bathrooms is of the highest standard. A super hairdryer and bath robes! Good breakfast and secure parking offered. The location is very convenient to the centre. Ok it doesn't have a bar but there are many ones within a few minutes walk and excellent restaurants. Lecce is a... More

Nice modern hotel a few minutes walk from the historic centre of Lecce. Quiet location although difficult to find due to one way streets and limited access roads, which you must ignore to get there. Garage parking is available. Very clean and minimalist, and very white. No coffee making facilities but breakfast included. Generous continental breakfast, with the best chocolate... More

The Arco Vecchio is a small hotel in the old town of Lecce, in Puglia, Italy. It is within walking distance of the train station & is, on entering, a delightful surprise. The property is minimalist & modern & is wonderfully bright & comfortable. The staff on Reception were very friendly & welcoming. My wife & I stayed on a... More

Had booked somewhere else in the old city but they relocated us to Arco Vecchio. This was a great stay. Ultra modern in design, good sized room, lovely bathroom...hard to find anything negative. The location was central for everything and we even achieved parking right outside!. Would recommend

Why people describe places as 'hard to find' in these high-tech days, I can't imagine. Don't they look at online maps and haven't they ever heard of Street View? I only had to virtual-walk from the station to this hotel once and I knew exactly how to get there. It is extremely simple! The hotel is a masterpiece of simple... More

Very central with garage parking. Rooms are modern, clean and functional. Reasonably quiet at night. Our sat nav could not work out the one way system but persistence, patience and trial and error in the general direction did in the end. Would recommend as good value, central accommodation.

This hotel is modern and has comfortable beds and a good breakfast with fruit, yogurt, bread and sweets. The staff speaks some English but we found variable customer service. The rooms are very modern and within walking distance of old town. However, the hotel is very hard to find and the directions given on the website are not detailed enough.... More

This hotel has very spacious rooms, with a beautiful modern design in a beautiful old building in the middle of Lecce's Centro storico. The staff is very welcoming and attentive. Very comfortable beds and well equipped and clean (bath-) room.

This is a really beautiful small hotel set in the old city with its winding streets. We were upgraded to a suite with a living room, bedroom, kitchen, balcony and two lovely bathrooms. The living room and bedroom both had huge flat screen TVs. Everything is modern and beautifully clean. Breakfast is a simple continental affair - but very nice... More
