“Like a big city hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

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.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

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', in particular a swimming pool and sun lounging area. I felt the parking space for over a hundred cars could have been put to better use! However the room was fantastic, with a huge, comfortable, clean bed and a large ensuite shower room with plentiful towels, complimentary shower gels, shampoos, etc. My only fault was the lack of a kettle and tea/coffee making facilities, which is usual for four star. We didn't use the restaurant apart from for breakfast which had a wonderful selection of continental/local delights and juices, laid out quite beautifully. (Although, coffee had to be ordered!?!) The restaurant was loud and busy at peak times, but there is a fantastic restaurant just a couple of minutes walk away. Here is little else in the vicinity, but the lovely resort of Lecce is just a short drive away, with lovely views, amazing architecture and plenty of good, reasonably priced restaurants and cafes.
The hotel staff are very well informed, helpful, friendly and professional. There is free wifi.
I would probably stay again, but only as a base for exploring the region.

We stayed for two days at this wonderfull hotel. Everything was perfect: the huge bed, the mattress, the pillows, the "rain" shower, the relaxing minimal design... Bravo Leone! Αν το ταξιδι σας φερει στη πανεμορφη πολη του Λετσε, μη χασετε την ευκαιρια να μεινετε σε αυτο το ξενοδοχειο! Love from Greece!

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 to visit the area. It is about 3km from the centre of Lecce however. There is one good associated restaurant a short walk away.
The rooms are spacious modern and clean. They do not provide complimentary mineral water and there is no in room coffee/tea tray as there would be in an hotel of similar standard (eg Holiday Inn Express) in the UK. Breakfast is reasonably good but the aforementioned coach trippers demolish it early!
One major benefit is free wifi.
This hotel was on a marketing email as one of the best - it isn't. If you want a good value, impersonal modern hotel this is for you. The staff are all most helpful, pleasant and one of the best points of the Hotel.

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 hotel as Italy is lucky to have such a region. I can't wait to get back and fortunately I know it's going to be soon. Keep up the good work Lions.

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 the best - the choice of food at the buffet was good but the staff could have been more attentive.

Would we stay here again? Yes.

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 you enter the village of Cavallino, is a restaurant with the same name as hotel. We had a delicious evening meal there- the steak was tremendous.
Tip: It was not the easiest hotel to find from the map on the website/google maps. As its a new ish hotel make sure you have updated maps on any Sat Nav system and request GPS co-ordinates from hotel!!!. Once we found it was easy to go back & forth to Lecce
