Palazzo Rollo
Ranked #24 of 321 Lecce B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 15, 2012

We spent three night there. The room we had had a balcony on to a courtyard where we could access the Wi Fi. Breakfast was ok but we had to ask for more coffee 2-3 times. Some local meats or cheese would have made a difference. The room was adjacent to a lovely library and a relaxing television lounge. We arrived by car and Signora Andretta supplied us with an online map. However we were a bit confused when we arrived first and used the stat nav which took us only to the start of the route to the hotel, Via Fazzi continue straight ahead into Via Verdi, ( don't turn right as this is tempting). At the end of Via Verdi turn left and then bear right and continue ahead into Via Ammirati ( where there is a very good Pizza al Taglia) then turn right at the end into Via Petronelli, continue on and you see the dark green door of Palazzo Rollo on Via Vittorio Emanuele in front of you.

Behind the entry door to Palazzo Rollo is a place of tranquility and absolute comfort. I stayed here recently while attending the Awaiting Table Cooking School. The contrast stepping out on a Sunday evening into the main street was stunning! The street had become the main thoroughfare of people traffic, walking arm in arm and enjoying the evening fresh air! Lecce is magical and Palazzo Rollo is a star in it's centre!

Room Tip: Courtyard room - brilliant apartment space

In an old palace we were taken through elegant sitting rooms and a dining room to our huge room with en-suite and windows with shutters overlooking the courtyard. The only time we saw the other guests was at breakfast, at a communal table which was simple but delicious. Further exploration led us to a vast rooftop garden with views over the city and the adjacent church with seats tucked here and there. A step outside the entrance gate we were slap in the middle of town, but you would never have known that when we were inside the hotel. Highly recommended and not expensive.

We stayed in Palazzo Rollo for three nights. The rooms are huge, have very high ceilings and are part of a huge elegant historic private apartment with common sitting room, library and dining room. The bathroom was modern and the breakfast excellent. The hotel is located in the center of the historic city and has its own parking. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Don't miss the fabulous roof garden the size of an Olympic swimming pool.

I stay at Palazzo Rollo when I attended the Awaiting Table cooking school. I had one of rooms on the bottom floor with entrance to the room directly from the court yard. The room was very good with a lot of space. Very comfortable bed and a perfect working air condition made me sleep very well. The room had a small kitchenette which was very good to store some food and cold drinks. You could even do self catering if wanted. The location in the middle of the historic centre is perfect when visiting Lecce. The only setback was that the wi-fi did not work very well and mostly not at all. I complained several times but they never succeeded to fix it.

We booked a small apartment at the Palazzo Rollo for a month. We booked the apartment because of the terrace, the internet access and the really nice photos we saw on the internet. But we never saw one of the nice rooms.
A couple of days before our arrival they asked us to switch us to another apartment. We have not been informed, that this other apartment would not be at the Palazzo Rollo, also the manager never saw the room before we complaint about that apartment!
The apartment was really loud, did not have air-condition, a really small kitchen, no internet access and no terrace or balcony.
After two nights we complaint because the noise and for not having a terrace and internet access. Finally they agreed to give us a room at the Palazzo Rollo (still not the one we booked). But as we saw the new apartment we left the Place quit fast.
To be fair, we did get some of our money back.

We stayed at the Palazzo Rollo for a week while attending the Awaiting Table. The rooms are very comfortable and part of an old Palazzo in the center of the old city. The breakfast is typically Italian and more than adequate. Elena, the Proprietress, is extremely helpful and speaks English well. If necessary, you can also rent a car or scooter at the Palazzo Rollo. If you are used to staying at the Intercontinental when travelling, you probably are not reading this anyway. But an Intercontinental Hotel really does not have much over the Palazazo Rollo in terms of charm and history. I highly recomend the Palazzo rollo for anyone visiting lecce.
