“Very well located, not the standard hotel type”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

The building was converted to serve as a hotel, so the rooms differ from one another.The
interior is imaginative, giving a cosy feeling. Therefore it is advised to choose a room according to your needs. location is excellent - you are in the center of everything worth seeing and experimenting in Lecce, and believe me, there is a lot to get from this gem of a town!
The staff is friendly and helpful

Room Tip: Downstairs nice but noisy a bit on weekends, top floor rooms not having windows to street, but quiet

Everything was good about hotel itself. Location was close to everything in town

Location was good, except on the Friday/ Saturday nights the street noise disturbed us...even with double glazing on windows. Of course nothing that the hotel can control. There was no active bar in the hotel.

Don't try using your satnav to find this hotel - too many one way streets/dead ends. It is a great location for exploring the town - good restaurants nearby and all the sites of the town within walking distance. On arrival the receptionist was very helpful and explained that there was a music event going on all night and advised a room not overlooking the town. Therefore we had no windows, but it was spacious and well equipped and fairly quiet. No restaurant but a nice roof terrace where you could have a drink and survey the town - great view. Breakfast was OK but not great. Staff need to know which restaurants are open on Sundays - and inform customers when reservations can't be made. Their recommendations for dining were good though.

The hotel is a newer addition in the town of Lecce (well worth a visit) and the rooms are lovely and the service great. There are rooms on the top floor that have no exterior window, only a ceiling dormer window, so if that is a concern be sure to specifiy that you don't want one of those rooms. Also, the rooms on the front of the hotel have lovely windows opening onto the piazza, but can be very loud on a Friday or Saturday night - bring earplugs or request an interior room.

I stayed 3 nights at the Santa Chiara Suite Hotel in february 2013, and would stay there again in a heartbeat. The hotel is located right at the end of the pedestrian zone in downtown, historic Lecce. The location is fantastic, the staff is incredibly professional and very helpful. The hotel is very luxurious and very clean with a beautiful coffee at the roof.

Room Tip: ask for room with window

In our experience, best part of this hotel is definitely its staff: kind, courteous, helpful and polite. A genuine touch of Southern Italian hospitality, the thing we appreciate the most about our stay at this hotel. For the rest the hotel is a pretty average Italian 4-star, with exception of the location which is the real selling point of the hotel.

Housed in an historical building, quality of accommodation ranges with the rooms. We changed two rooms and both came with some problems, whether the size/ackward layout, the shower or the heating system.

Location in the city center is excellent for siteseeing. The hotel is easily reached with the car (if you are using a GPS mind calling the hotel for the address to input in the system as many GPSs will take you to a blocked gate nearby), then you can park your car and access all city center's sights by a short walk. Note parking by hotel's staff in a nearby garage comes at Euro 20 surcharge per day and I believe there is no convenient alternatives.

As noted in other reviews, breakfast is on the low-end side for a 4-star but service on the rooftop terrace makes it enjoyable.

Despite the shortcomings, we had good time in this hotel thanks to the great location and the excellent staff. We would probably return a second time with more scrutiny on the room we are given.

I stayed one night at the Santa Chiara Suite Hotel in October 2012, and would stay there again in a heartbeat. The hotel is located right at the end of the pedestrian zone in downtown, historic Lecce. The location is fantastic: you can walk to most of the sites in Lecce in a few minutes, and because it's a touristy neighborhood, it's fairly quiet at night. The hotel is impeccably clean, tastefully decorated in monochromatic white and creams, and has top notch service. My colleague forgot his cell phone charger at home, but the hotel lent him a charger for the night - and then told him he could keep it when we checked out! The room was spacious and attractive, and the breakfast was delicious (typical hotel fare in Italy, but with fresh ingredients). I spent 81 euros for a room for 1 person with a queen bed. Rooms have a/c and blackout shutters. Worth every penny!
