This is our first hotel of the Puglia fly & drive roundtrip in September. The hotel is situated outside Lecce and the GPS cannot track this hotel, because this hotel has no street name. So, the last few kilometers we switched on Google Maps and search the hotel name. The rooms are quite spacious, the staff friendly as you would... More

Modern building with ample parking outside the hotel. Good value for money. Location outside the city of Lecce but not too far to still explore. 10% discount at the next door restaurant. Very friendly and competent staff! Clean, quiet spacious rooms!

We stayed here for 2 nights during a 3 week tour in Italy. It proved to be excellent value for money. It was difficult to find but was modern and spotlessly clean and had one of the best showers I have ever used with jets from the wall as well as overhead. It was a little way out of Lecce... More

It's located on the outskirts of the city so it's suitable if you drive. It's only 10 minutes from city center by car. Modern building with nice modern rooms. The staff is nice and helpful. Ample parking. Breakfast is excellent, nice selection and good presentation.

Out of town a bit but plenty of parking and a very modern, sparkling clean hotel! But the wi-fi was a bit of a problem to get on. Three (3) clerks spent a good deal of time trying to get me on their system. One finally succeeded just before I eft in the morning. I had not had such a... More

I visited this place as a guest of a birthday party. I was impressed by overall professional service. What surprised me most was a tiny finger food that re-interpreted a traditional rural dish: "fave e cicorie" (fava beans and chicory): 2 inch round salty biscuit with a fava bean cream topped by a green hemisphere of chicory gelatin.
