“Friendly, good value, no frills hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

My husband and I stayed one night in the efficiancy apartment. It was clean and modern. The location is great - only about 5 minute walk to the heart of historic Lecce and walkable from the train station (we even did the walk after dark and felt very safe). Owner lives on-site and is very friendly, will point out all the highlights and recommend restaurants on a free map when you arrive. Breakfast is included but is at a nearby cafe. Free Wi-Fi.

Warmly welcomed on arrival and given excellent recommendations and guidance for making the most of Lecce, and all of its food, drinks, entertainments. Spacious room, stylishly decorated. Rooftop terrace with beautiful views of the historic centre of the city. Great central location, 2 mins walk from the major piazzas, and 10 mins from the train station. Highly recommended.

I can't say enough good things. I had just come from another B & B in Sorrento which was horrible, so I was really worried.... As soon as I arrived I knew I had nothing to worry about. First of all I booked for July when I arrived in June. After a few minutes of trying to figure out the mistake Tullio was more than accommodating! He was so wonderful, it was late and I just wanted to drop my stuff. The room was really nice and very clean, the shower had great water pressure. In my second room I had a little kitchen which would have been wonderful if I had been staying longer. I have nothing bad to say about this B & B. Tullio is doing it right! The location can be a little hard to find but once you are there it is so easy to walk around all of Lecce.

We spend 4 nights to the B&B Azzurretta . The B&B is situated in the hart of the old Lecce in a beautiful “palazzo nobiliare” (noble palace), the room are good and the B&B have a large and very nice terrace with a beautiful view to the old city!
We were welcomed from Tullio. He is very friendly and he have a lot of good suggestions and advices about city and the region of Salento, and especially about the food.
So, don ‘t hesitate to follow his advices about the restaurants, because he know the best restaurants and taverns!! Great!
Thanks Tullio we don’t have any problem for the parking of our car in the Centrum of the city!

The only les point is about the breakfast. We take our breakfast is a bar in the centrum (5 minutes walk to the B&B). It is one of the best bar of the city and the quality is very good, but the breakfast is not very big (jest a cappuccino, one cookie and one orange juice,..not very big for a normal B&B).

An excellent place for a long stay - more than two weeks. The roof terrace was indispensable for lunch and reading. Tulio (the owner) gave good information on busses and trains in the area. Very effective cheap transportation. And Tulio was very helpful trying to get hold of our two trunks that arrived 4 days late. San Tulio.

Trullio, the innkeeper, made this a great stay. If you're looking for valet parking, an easy car approach, and an elevator that takes you right to your room, stay somewhere else. But if you're looking for a great experience with centro storico living and you want to pretend you're a local, come here. Trullio went out of his way to greet us, help me find parking, carry our bags, gave all kinds of recommendations, and generally make us feel good about Lecce. The terrace overlooking the rooftops of the duomo and pallazios was also excellent... great for an evening wine.

Room Tip: Pay the extra 5-10 euro for a mini suite with balcony.

Stayed for 2 nights and had the time of my life! The owner tullio showed my friend and I a great time in lecce- showed us nearby Porto selvaggio and had us over for dinner! Him and his brother who runs the b&b in the same building were so helpful and inviting. I recommend this place to everyone!
