    The breakfast was not exactly good. The quality of the black coffee is just terrible and there is not fresh fruits.

    The location is nice. The comfort is nice. The employees in the desk helped me what I needed: Its is important.

    Shower was small but OK. Mini bar poor. Safe tiny. Dinners were very dull. This hotel needs a make over.

    The dining room staff were really lovely. We had a great big room but it was all rather tired. The air con worked but looked ancient. Laundry was very good. Hairdryer was excellent! Beds were comfy.

    I had reserved and confirmed a standard double room with a double bed and a sofa bed, with parquet floors. The first room, the number 330, have carpeted floors, furnished and was summarily have mold on a wall. The second room three floors above, number 630, had nothing of what you specify in the booking. It was a room with a disgusting smell, perhaps from carpeting, have very old and damaged furniture. I had just an armchair and a broken Chair, everything smelled nasty. Economic Chamber, as it is presented on booking.com, is incomparably more beautiful than a double room, with its higher price, where we stayed. I was disappointed, there were 3 days disagreeable.

    The location is good, within walking distance of the historic centre. Underground parking 10 euros per day. Good breakfast.

    The heating system kept the room at high temperature and I could not cool it down except opening windows and hearing street noises.

    Breakfast ok. The room is spacious and confortable, although the decoration is old. Bed is very good.

    As I have already said the breakfast should be better for a 4 stars hotel.

    Good and confortable facilities and a very good location. Unfortunatly the breakfast doesn´t fit with the hotel quality. You can go easily on foot to the centre of Lecce and it's very easy to arrive by car and ride out to different places and beaches.

    We booked in the evening of arrival day and in the booking was written that they give for 2 year old child a babycot, but they didnt give and administrator say that they do this only in the mornings.

    We haved room for 3 adults and 1 two year old child. We haved 3 big beds (120cm) for every adults. Room and beds were clean and comfortable. Car can park for free at night on the street.

    Mini bar wasn't working properly, nothing was cool. A light didn't work. The air con was a joke, all it seemed to be was a fan in a steel box. Didn't work at all some of the time and when it did it had no cooling effect whatsoever. Walls thin enabling noise from neighbours to be easily heard, thus being a disturbance. No tea/ coffee making facilities in the room. Not really our understanding of a four star Hotel.

    Staff were fine, location and parking were good

    Really missed tea/coffee making facilities. Asked for a kettle but none available but room service did deliver two cups of tea. Not the same. There is a fridge in the room. Also the car park is great, under the building but we're not made aware of the €10 per night cost until check out. Overall would highly recommend this hotel as comfortable and value for money

    Great location, excellent value, helpful staff, very comfortable big rooms.

    The hotel has a fun retro feel to it. The breakfast was good. The staff was helpful. The location was good not to far of a walk to the city center and they had on sight parking for a fee.

    For being in Italy this place served the worst coffee in the entire town... Also for business purposes, Internet is essential and only the one in the lobby is usable. In the rooms the bandwidth is very low.

    Unlike most hotels in Italy this place served a full breakfast buffet with fresh veggies every day.

    Restaurant could do with some music. So quiet that you could hear your knives and fork being put down on table. Food good but too quiet as there was not a big crowd there. Hence no atmosphere.

    The room decor is getting faded. Our first room had a slipping toilet seat that wasn't resolved, we changed rooms. The bed was large but very hard, we had the same problem in another hotel in Brindisi 40km up the road so it may be regional thing!. Noise from outside the hotel (hotel related activities) started early on from 6:00am. The bar was very limited and rarely staffed. There was no hot food at breakfast e.g. scrambled egg or sausage. The TV was an old tube type with a very flaky adapter attached to it that kept cutting out.

    The rooms in this hotel are very large. The lifts were quick to respond and one was usually open and available on the ground floor. Unnecessary for this time of year (mid October) the windows were easily openable and also were fitted with good closing wooden window shutters effectively blacking out the room. Outstandingly the price was exceptionally good value.

    The hotel is 20 years out of date, Air Con was an old box under the window which needs an overhaul badly. Carpet stained, walls with damp in room and corridor. Never any staff at the bar always had to get someone from reception to ring for them.

    non posso dare alcuna opinione in quanto mentre ero già in viaggio sono stata contatta da una incaricata che mi ha avvisata che, a causa di un "guasto all'aria condizionata del piano", mi avevano prenotato, senza interpellarmi e preavvisarmi ,una camera in un Hotel di pari categoria alle stesse condizioni. Al mio disappunto l'incaricata ha risposto che ormai non c'era altra possibilità. Faccio notare che l'Hotel prenotato è lontano dal centro città con relativo disagio.
