Aedes B&B - The Garden of Dreams
Ranked #4 of 331 Lecce B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I fail to understand where they get the description 'Resort' in the name. The facilities are nothing other than a B+B with a poor effort made for breakfast. Wifi is supposed to be in all rooms but we needed to go and sit in reception. When you arrive ( don't try to check in before 15.00 hours as this is spelt out before that you cannot ) you will be greeted by the un-smiling manager and you are then presented with a list of the rules of the establishment. It's location is its saving feature as it is a short walk to the old town but I would hope there have to be better alternatives in Lecce.

Stayed: September 2012, traveled with family

The name deceives - the Aedes Resort felt more like a small compound with a well maintained garden than a resort. The 3 to share room we stayed in was spacious and clean. We had some problems with the shower door and it was fixed quickly. Note though the reception, gardener and handyman appears to be the same person, so I think it takes a bit of luck to track him down.

Breakfast was included and you could have it at the garden. It’s nice and relaxing though more flowers will enhance the overall presentation. The breakfast was simple given the ambience and a more expansive menu will go well with the garden setting.

Aedes is quite well located. It’s close to the historic centre where you will find a number of tourist attractions and restaurants. Aedes Resort was reasonably priced when we were there in May 2011 and it’s worth consideration if budget is an important consideration.

When I was in Lecce last year the local football team played Bari in the local derby. Supporters filled up the main highway and you could sense the passion and excitement. Lecce is struggling to stay up in the Serie A this year and I wish the team and the city luck!

Imagine a B&B when you check IN only when the owner wants (not before 4:00 PM,not before 8:30...)
Imagine a hotel where you are pushed out at 10:00 AM;like it or not..because the same owner does not want to over work..
If you are not able to smile,dont open a business,says a Chineese word.It seems Marco Polo definitely did not stay at Aedes to teach the guy..
Ok,the hotel is nicely located.Ok the garden in well tended..
But if want a pleasant stay,wait until the unpleasant owner of today is kicked out of business... Unless you prefer being kicked out of the breakfast room for showing late..at 10.01 AM....

Room comfortable and clean. Garden nicely kept. Within 7 minutes walking distance of main street in Lecce. Breakfast rather sparse.
