Thank you Franzi, we had a splendid stay in the *terre d'ombre* rooms. We stayed longer then we planned because of the location on the main square and the quietness of our rooms.
Good beds and bathroom and very clean
We even had a fully equipped kitchen and I was happy because I planned to use it for a more substantial breakfast than what you normally get in Italian hotels.
Well I never used that kitchen because the breakfast in Casa de Mercanti is fantastic, orange jus, ham, cheese, salami, good coffee, good bread and last but not least the Lecce special sweet cakes which were oven fresh and to die for. They served the breakfast in your own room at a given time. What a luxury! And what kind personnel.
There are absolutely no problems for Franzi, the manager, only solutions. We experienced that twice with a problem and thank you again. By the way the manager is fluent in English and the other personnel speak good English.
We had to call 20 minutes before we arrived and the reason was that Franzi's assistant was there on the street to guide us to a parking place.Terrific because it is a complicated city to drive in.
Parking never was a real problem ( beginning of October 2012). Parking was free as was the very good WiFi. AC was very efficient and not noisy, but we opened the windows and hardly ever used the AC.
At the outside it looks like an office block from the 60ties. The hotel is on the 3rd and 4th floor.
It is very well secured.
I highly recommend this hotel/ apartment and for us it is a 5 star place!
