“Lecce and Partia Palace Lecce hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2014

A very nice and classy city, Lecce is called Florence of the South. Around city center Buildings are beautiful mostly with lime stone , restaurants are plenty and quite good.
Partia Palace is a good 4 star hotel , it is clean, breakfast is quite good. Price is reasonable. If you are driving a car inspite of GPS it is tricky to get to it due to the fact that there is a pedestrian only street next to it.
They will park your car in a nearby parking garage for 16.00 Euro per night. When in center you would not need the car, but then every day you can drive to a nearby city, and you should. Small cities in Puglia are beautiful and very close. Bari is interesting to go if you have time for at least half a day, The Center has nice stores and restaurents. But smaller cities are more interesting.
Try to drive to Otranto it is beautiful and interesting city by the Adriatic , sunset is memorable.
Magglie is another clean, beautiful city with good food and boutique shops. Do not miss nearby Ostuni a small town with white homes and structures built into a hillside.
Have a great trip to Puglia.

Patria Palace is a hotel that blends wonderfully in the old historic central quarter of Lecce to the point it is difficult to locate.The hotel has an unassuming entrance but inside has a cozy lobby cum bar. The dining room ,however, is cold and like all small hotels very understaffed.
There is not much to be said of the place except that for someone visiting Lecce, the greater focus is on the sites and Patria Palace provides a good, comfortable base for that.

Spent 3 nights at Patria Palace Hotel in beautiful Lecce at the end of a holiday in Puglia. Ambience and stylish, historic architecture and design of hotel are delightful and are completely in keeping with the whole cultural experience of the old city. We stayed in standard rooms which were not big but quite adequate in size and traditionally Italian : elaborate cornicing, classical furniture , lots of marble and a HUGE bed. Air conditioning perfectly set to complement the temperatures in mid 30s celsius outside.
Wonderful, attentive but appropriately understated service. Excellent staff. Sylvano, (car parking and luggage concierge activities ) and Pasquale, aka 'Doc' (in the restaurant) deserve special mention for their help, charm and professionalism. Breakfasts were fresh and plentiful with comprehensive choice. Nice roof terrace. Only reason for not giving a judgement of 5 is lack of swimming pool, which, in the intense heat, would have been much appreciated. However, pools do not seem to be common in Puglia generally and lack of one did not spoil our stay.
Plenty of good quality and reasonably priced restaurants in Lecce and coast not far away.
Would like to return to Patria Palace.

Room Tip: Standard rooms have no 'view' to speak of, other than back of hotel. Not picturesque. Upgrad...

Overall excellent experience.
Room is nice and well planned. Excellent staff.
Most impressive is breakfast. Amazing selection of teas!! The biggest I ever seen in any other hotel. I had car trouble and staff was very helpful. They called every repair garage in vicinity.
Hotel is located right in the center, so it's easy to go around and explore Lecce.

Lecce is a beautiful city with a very walkable center. The Patria Palace enjoys an excellent location in the core. Front desk staff were either very efficient or very gruff, depended on who was minding the store. My Club Accor membership got me not so much as a thank you. You need to get a new wifi code daily from the front desk for each device and depending on who was there to generate the pass, it was as if they were doing you a favor; The room was reasonably sized and well furnished. Beds were very hard, Breakfast was very good and staff in the breakfast room are great; they don't have the attitude of their colleagues at the front desk. It was very hot in Lecce and the efficient air conditioning was very much appreciated.

We really liked the Patria Palace. It is right in the center of town and with in walking distance of everything. We had a large clean modern room on the third floor with a huge patio. It is right between two large old churches so we never had any trouble finding our way back at night. They have a full breakfast with a wonderful staff at the ready for what ever you might need. The front desk was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and arraigning trips. They have a beautiful restaurant with great menu.

Room Tip: Get a room on the third floor. It has a large lounging area for sun bathing or sitting around having...

We arrived after a long flight and a train to Lecce. The hotel is beautiful and the people at the reception desk were very nice and efficient. Our room was not huge but perfectly arranged to accommodate us. The bathroom was just what we needed after such a trip to get there. The view from the terrace at the top and the surroundings make this hotel perfect to spend a couple of days visiting Lecce.
