Perfectly located with a dramatic view of Santa Croce. Very helpful staff especially in accommodating dietary needs. One day we had all three meals there, plus cocktails on rooftop bar. A little complicated driving a car to the hotel, but they valet so no need to worry once you get there.
Enriqua was excellent in helping finding us rooms when our vacation rental failed to meet our expectations. She gave us very comfortable rooms for our stay and was helpful and considerable throughout or stay. Pierangelo followed up by moving us to permanent rooms for our entire stay. Altogether the hotel provides excellent service. Our breakfast (included in the room price) was served in a very comfortable terrace overlooking the Bacillica Santa Croce. The hotel is easy walking distance to all main sites in Lecce. We highly recommend Patria Palace!
I booked this hotel in Lecce and I’m so happy I did! What a beautiful place and it’s so worth it. The place is immaculate and the breakfast is so special, but what also made our stay was the great staff! We loved Francesco, he was so kind and helpful. Perfect English and ready to find us booking times and places to go. I would make him a supervisor at any five star hotel in the world! Much love to this great place! Courtney and Elizabeth, NYC
Staff, location, breakfast and rooftop views all stunning but we have one issue that we are awaiting to have resolved since our trip & I have contacted both Antonio & Salvatore about through the front desk and are still waiting to be resolved. When it is we can also add that the customer service was also excellent.
We have stayed in Lecce 2x, once here and once at the Risorgimento. Although both are very good, we preferred the Patria for the outdoor terrace quiche came with our room, although it was only enjoyable;e at certain times of day. Hr Santa Croce Basilica and next to the Jewish Museum. In any case, Lecce’s historical center is very small and everything is easy to reach. The Patria has a tiny restaurant that is elegant and has good service and a menu that offered a welcome relief from the staples of southern Italian cuisine, but no one seemed to eat there for some reason.
Beautiful hotel, with true 5-star service. The staff took great care of us during our 4-days-stay, and the breakfast is amazing. Don’t miss the rooftop, with a great view. Good to know, is that the prices are 2-3 times more than the bars right next to the hotel. But that is also to be expected from a bar/restaurant on this level. Would truly recommend a stay a Patria Palace, and will for sure stay here next time in Lecce.
This hotel would be at top of market in almost any US city. Such a pleasant find in Lecce. With construction on building in front next to the beautiful church, we opted for room with terrace towards the back of the hotel. Room 308 itself was small but terrace enlarged it and gave us a suitable sitting area (and place to dry clothes we washed in sink). Well located in center of historic area. Staff very helpful and accommodating. On arrival by car, you follow the small signs to hotel, through pedestrian only plazas, etc. Ignore Google Maps and just look for and follow the signs. Roof top bar and restaurant. Breakfast on ground floor and outside was outstanding. Eggs cooked to order; granola and yougurt; sample of local savory and sweet selections; juicy sweet melon; fresh juices; and made to order juices from vegetables, etc. I stayed there twice in two weeks, and have zero complaints or criticisms, which is unusual for me.…
Excellent stay. Location, comfort, service and breakfast are best in class. The most impressive breakfast, carefully served. It was much more than I ever experienced anywhere. The location an absolute gem. The internal decor is also very nice. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Personnel courtesy and professionalism was memorable. Nothing else to say
First of all, the location of the hotel is amazing. You are exactly where you want to be. Close to all the sites and yet tucked in a little corner away from any noise. The hotel itself is lovely and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is fresh, delicious and everything is presented very nicely (best I’ve seen in covid times) Now for the reason why I can’t give it a five star. When we arrived the air conditioning was not working in our room along with the telephone and the fridge. It was during a mini heatwave so all the water was warm and the room was boiling. We tried to sleep that night but had to ask the desk if there was anything that could be done. They gave us another room for the night and assured us that everything will be fixed the next day. The next day the fridge was fixed but the ac and the phone were still broken even though they told us it was fixed. When we asked if anything could be done they told us it was because we left the windows open that the ac wasn’t feeling cold (which wasn’t true) They offered us another room which had a much better ac. The bathroom was much smaller and the tv didn’t work, but by now I just wanted a room that was not hot and felt bad complaining again. By the end of the stay we had had warm drinks, one sleepless night and a downgraded room so when it came to pay at the end I was expecting a reduced price or at least the drinks from the mini bar to be taken off the bill. We got nothing, which I found a bit mean. The staff always listened to our questions and complaints and were never rude, however I feel a bit hard done by at the end of the trip…
Absolutelly wonderful stay. From the moment you walk in you feel welcome. Great staff, very helpfull. Location is also great, walkable to everythig in the old city. We were upgraded for no reason and the room was one of the best we have ever been at. Also for no reason we were offered chocolates and champagne in the room. We loved everything about this hotel. Parking is with valet and free of charge, Incredible breakfast, must try the cornetto filled with pistacho sauce. We made a normal reservsation for a normal room but were treated like owned the hotel. Thanks to everyone at the Patria Palace.
