It was very special being in the centre of this wonderful city. The Palazzo was next to an interesting museum showing 14th century relics of the old Jewish quarter. The room was very spacious, clean and with a good size bathroom. Breakfast included some very nice custard pastries. I, very stupidly, left on the lights of my unfamiliar hire car,... More

We stayed as a family (two young kids) in their largest room which had windows facing right out on the main piazza. The room was huge, with a king bed, and two big chairs that each opened up into a twin size bed. My kids were charmed by the beds, and we were all charmed by the room, city, and... More

Beautiful, clean, newly renovated rooms. Perfect location. Warm, friendly, hospitable and family run. You will be hard pressed to find better. We were treated like family. Anna, Grazia and Nini exemplify southern Italian culture and charm.

We had an amazing 2 nights stay in one of their beautiful rooms. The room was large, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It was very quiet for sleeping, and then you open the door right into the heart of the old city! Grazia, Anna and Nini are the most amazing hosts who treated us like family!

I was invited to talk at a conference in Lecce and this was the accommodation they provided for me. I was in awe from the first moment. The location just opposite Santa Croce is breathtaking and extremely convenient. Anna, the lady at Reception, was kind, friendly and accommodating. The room (archi) was large, beautiful and had a fabulous leccese feel... More

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.
