Chiesa Greca B&B Suites
Ranked #103 of 321 Lecce B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 27, 2009

The hotel is difficult to find. When we finally arrived, there was no one anywhere around.
The B&B has no office, and we had to resort to knocking on all the doors in the neighborhood to find the place. Finally, someone appeared in the street to tell us to "move the car", as no parking was allowed in the square. We were told to drive around until we found a place, given an autorization for street parking, and were left on our own.
This problem was never mentioned in the reservation when we noted that we had a car.

We were shown to a "room" down the street. It was very dark, drab and scary. The room consisted of a sitting room with small dark kitchen, bedroom and old bath. The lock was not secure, and we felt the need to barricade the door at night.

The only positive is that the bread was delicious in the morning!

In four nights I experienced three of the rooms at Chiesa Greca. Beautiful to look at but basically quite dirty. I am in no ways a clean freak but this place, for the 55 euro a night i was paying was not very good. In one of the rooms I put my bag onto the rug and it came back up literally covered with dust. Two of the bathrooms had old soap residue stuck on the soap trays and hair in the sink from a previous customer. Also there was a lot of mould on the shower doors. Furthermore there was no toilet paper in one of the rooms I was in, and the toilet had not been cleaned, which was not very pleasant...
The breakfast also was a lot to be desired - if you want to eat before 8.30am then there is nothing except biscuits. Also, the tray for the croissants seemed to have not been cleaned once - they just picked up the dirty tray in the morning and put more croissants on it...
That being said, the location is fantastic and the rooms are charming to look at.

We spent a total of three nights at Chiesa Greca. The buildings are fantastic and really beautifully restored, although the bathrooms were a bit basic. Everything was pretty clean, although there were still a lot of leftovers in the cupboards from previous holidaymakers which wasn't nice!

My main problem was the breakfast - it was awful. Basically all that was offered was a jar of broken biscuits. The coffee was nice, although super strong. On our third stay, we told the landlady that we would have to leave by 7:20am and could we have breakfast at 7:00am. When we went down in the morning, the dining room was shut and she just said that her employee didn't start until 8am. She refused to give us a discount for having no breakfast. it was 80 euros a night which was really expensive for accommodation only.

However, it was ideally situated and Lecce is beautiful.

Great B&B suites in the heart of Leece, perfect for families who need more space, a living room and a kitchen (and a balcony!) in addition to a bed.

Very good value for such a central location. The breakfast was pretty poor though.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Chiesa Greca Bed & Breakfast is located in a 14th-century building which has been magnificiently restored in a fashion which recalls the understated elegance of past times. The inimitable warm welcome associated with the Salento is reflected in the refinement of the rooms and the care given to the smallest architectural details. Details in the furnishings, carefully selected to match the aristocratic architectural style of the Lecce Medieval period, create delightful living spaces with a feeling of casual glamour. The Chiesa Greca B&B is located in the oldest quarter of the historic centre of Lecce, only a few minutes' walk from both Piazza Sant' Oronzo and the Basilica of Santa Croce. Inside the building, remains of an underground olive-oil-press can still be seen, as well as the outline of a private chapel dating from the time of the edifice's construction; traces of the original frescoes can still be admired on the vaulted ceilings. Thanks to the painstaking restoration, the various stages of the building's history from its origins through to the present form are clearly visible. A stay in the Chiesa Greca B&B allows one to enjoy the ancient origins of the building without forgoing any of the modern comforts and conveniences which one expects in contemporary living; the unique atmosphere of the walls and ceilings in Leccese stone provide an ambiente one will not find elsewhere. Lecce's famous sights, from Roman ruins to the Baroque jewels of the many churches and palaces, can be reached within just a few minutes' walk. In addition, the famous beaches and towns of the Salento, such as Gallipoli, Otranto, Santa Cesarea Terme, Castro and Santa Maria di Leuca, to name just a few, are not far away; numerous highways connect Lecce with the rest of the Salento. The list of destinations of historic interest or enjoyable recreation venues in the Salento is virtually endless. The Chiesa Greca B&B is located in the square of the same name, approximately 100 metres from the Tribunale of Lecce, the easiest reference point if one is arriving by car on the Brindisi-Lecce freeway. ... more   less
