Steps from the Basilica in the absolute heart of Lecce, Palazzo Persone is highly worth consideration. It is a small hotel that is really more of a B&B. The rooms are all unique with high character. I found the reception to be incredibly helpful and accommodating. A highly recommended hotel from which to tour this very interesting Baroque town.

Great location, about 50 m from the Santa Croce Basilica. We had a ground floor room, the doors of which opened directly onto the street. This makes for quite a unique experience of living in the city rather than being a hotel or B&B guest. The room itself was very nicely designed, with high ceilings and the bathroom made of... More

After a stunning review and visit to Lecce, we returned to a still wonderful city but to a broken down bed and breakfast that had lost it's management and charm. Although location is great, Persone was a mere shadow of its former self. There were broken tiles and mirrors in the bathroom, no outside dining service although it may have... More

We absolutely loved this hotel. The location was perfect for exploring Lecce on foot. Anna at reception is a gem --- she helped us find a great parking lot (only 10 euro for 24 hours) nearby but out of the way to ensure we could leave the city during a large festival, was very to communicate with (she speaks English...

Very nice and helpful reception: she rode with me to find a parking spot, she booked restaurants for us and advised what to see. Amazing historical building. Our room was vaulted and very large, and was directly accessible from the street. Lecce was a big surprise and we were right in the middle of it.

Palazzo Persone is an excellent hotel - a classy B & B - in the heart of the centro storico, couldn't be more central. Rooms are spacious with good bathroom, air con, etc. What makes it even more perfect, is the very helpful Anna in Reception, helped us with parking arrangements and so much more. Would thoroughly recommend.

Excellent choice in the heart of the Old Town We highly recommend the Palazzo Personé. We enjoyed our 3-day stay in The Arches room in April. The Palazzo is right next to the Basilica and an easy walk to all the major sites in Lecce, including some fabulous restaurants. Anna at reception was welcoming and helpful. Completely and tastefully modernized,... More

I would happily reflect what other reviewers have said about the location of this classy smart hotel, slap bang next to the Basilica. Could not have been more perfect for exploring this amazing city. Our room, opening onto the square with our own door, was huge and like sleeping in a church itself! (well, it had been a synagogue!). My... More

This splendidly located hotel, in the very centre of this fantastical city, right next to the magnificent Church of Santa Croce, was excellent in every way except that the charming reception staff, who had warned us in advance about extremely strict car-parking restrictions, did not in the event take what they said were the essential steps to avoid us being...

This B&B is located 10 years from the Basilica in Lecce. It is in a 15th century building of the site of a Synagogue that was torn down by the Spaniards who drove the Turks out of the area. This is more like renting an apartment, it does not really have much services. If you want the best location in... More
