Palazzo Bernardini is a beautiful historical building full of character, at the heart of Lecce. We stayed in a very spacious part of the palace, dining room, living room and bedroom, all full of antique furniture. Had our delicious breakfast at our private terrace with a peaceful garden view. Niko, the hotel manager has been very helpful and informative; providing... More

Good things first. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Good location just in the middle of historical center. Very warm welcome of the manager of the place. I would definitely enjoy this nice place if not for quite disappointing and yet very important matters in hospitality business... It was not properly cleaned: first of all fresh towels we were given... More

From the helpful Niko to the perfect continental breakfasts, we loved our too brief 2 night stay at Palazzo Bernardini. Make sure you get Niko, the manager detailed a city map with his great suggestions for great restaurants and tourist visits.

The accommodation is extremely spacious - consisting of a large lounge/dining area, bedroom to the rear with doors opening on to a beautiful terrace and garden, and a bathroom consisting of a stand-up shower and jacuzzi bathtub. Decoration is traditional... More

Lecce was destroyed by an earthquake in 1743, but had been built up in a relatively short period using the yellowish local sandstone, the pietra leccese. This created an elegant, softly glowing place (Edinburgh in the UK, could be a similar example) ; romantic to the core, especially in the evening with street lamps throwing shadows on the walls of...

Nikolaos, the Manager, was amazing! Everything and anything we needed was provided without hassle. We had one of the suites and it was gorgeous, spacious, and with access to the back patio for a table under the wisteria-blooming for breakfast! Location excellent, Couldn't have had a better experience!
