We stayed in this hotel two nights during a vacation in Puglia. The hotel is quite new and very clean. Personnel was extremely nice and helpful. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, mattresses are excellent and quite above the average. It is a bit out of town, but it is only a few minutes drive away (there is ample parking available)... More

This brand new hotel has all you need from a modern point of view. The staff is friendly and the rooms are big and comfortable. The only big issue is the distance from the city and it is somehow difficult to arrive. Very practical if you have a car.

Spacious, well-decorated and modern plush hotel, designed to host conferences and attract business travellers and large groups of visitors. I would not recommend it for couples or families - I didn't see a single child whilst there! It has the luxury and comfort of a four star hotel but I was surprised and disappointed at the lack of 'outdoor area',... More

The hotel is just south of the tangenziale and easily accessible with ample parking. Despite extensive grounds there is only a limited amount of exterior seating overlooking the car park. There is no pool or garden. Most of the other guests appear to be coach parties of Italian tourists and the hotel is well situated as a base from which... More

A little difficult to find but once you get there it's a surprise in a land of surprises, unrepeatable Puglia. Reception staff are fabulous, restaurant and bar staff just as good. Standard of rooms is more a 5 star then a 4 star and the breakfast with little Apulian specialities is unforgettable. Lecce is as lucky to have such a... More

New, fresh and clean. Contemporary minimalist furniture. Very good. No complaints but a couple of niggles that mean we would score 4/5 over all. Room temperature was lower than we would like but it was only 3 degrees outside (yes it does get cold in the winter here) and the heating system wasn't up to it. Service at breakfast wasn't... More

Nice hotel on the edge of Lecce. A new hotel so everything still looking clean and tidy. It was very quiet when we were there, with well appointed rooms a short drive from city sights. Large bed and lovely bathroom. Friendly staff spoke good english. Also just down the road going away from Lecce on the left hand side as... More
