Great hotel for businessmen and tourists
Posted Jan 13, 2012
On the minus side, location is not exactly central, about 20 minutes walking distance from the old town, but on the plus side easy to reach by car and with free parking. Brand new hotel, unbeatable price.

Great hotel for business or holiday traveler
Posted Jan 27, 2012
Pros: Modern design & cleanliness, well equipped Fitness area (with actual free wt's and benches).
Cons: Everything was nice, no negatives to report
Location: Off of inner city ring-road, just 20 minutes from city center / "old town" or 10 minutes from Piazza Mazzini shopping area. 2 minutes to CONI
New, nicely designed hotel located an easy 20 minutes (on foot) from city center. The room was large and confortable, The fitness center was well equipped and the Spa & Wellness center looked good too. I had lunch in the hotel restaurant and the quality of the food was very good. Perhaps the prices are high compared to same dishes downtown, but this is a Hotel afterall. Breakfast buffet was considerably better than what can usually be found in Italian hotels; usual pastries, croissants, cold cuts and yoghurts but also some hot choices like eggs and sausages. The hotel is off of a main road so fairly easy to get to. The area it is located in is very quiet and the parking structure is safe. After years of staying in more central hotels I will make the switch to this hotel for my monthly visits as the high quality and reasonable price fit my needs nicely.
Not in the center but can be a good choice

The hotel is located around 15 min walk from the city center, they also have a convenient free shuttle to the airport or center. As we had a car it was easy to park in the area and at the same time visit Lecce or take the highway to the surroundings towns. Room quality is of good standard. The bed and linen are just some of the best we have tried yet! Only negative point is the fact the hotel is full of wall speakers playing some sort of elevator music in loop all day long. You can hear the annoying music from away as you walk past the parking, on the corridors, etc. One night I was awaken at midnight as people walked around and turned the music on (they are turned on by proximity sensors) at a very loud level! Management should sort that one...

Super hotel with excellent facilities
Posted Jan 15, 2012
Pros: Service, standard of rooms and rooftop pool
Cons: Lifts are fast and there are three of them, but they are typical European small size, which US visitors might find irritating
Location: About 15 minutes from the city centre on foot, or 5 in the limo. However limo does not operate after 8pm, which means a taxi back if eating out.
This is a superb new hotel with everything you expect of a top-rate Hilton. The rooms are comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. All the fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality. In answer to previous posts, the pool is fully operational, and transport is available free of charge to the city centre on request. However you need to tell reception when you want to be picked up, as it is only arranged on request. For two of us, they used a Mercedes. The hotel is in a fairly upmarket area of new apartment blocks and there are a few shops. However the city centre is not too far away. Bike hire is available at about 5 euros per half day, and is well worth considering as a means of easily exploring the city's narrow streets. Easy, as the city is virtually flat. Has a good restaurant and a self service laundry.
Good Value for money

Amazing Hotel for a Great Price, not centrally located
Posted Jan 8, 2011
This hotel was very nice for an amazing price. The lobby was large and very nice, the elevator was fast and the rooms were quiet. The hotel had many amenities that most Italian hotels don't. It had a swimming pool and a washer and dryer available for guest use on the 7th floor for 3 Euro a wash and 3 Euro for a dry which was great for us traveling for 2 weeks with only carry on bags. The room was large and spacious and very new and clean. The bathroom was also a great size. Their breakfast buffet was simply amazing. It had eggs you could boil, waffles to make with toppings, a large selection of fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, bread, dried fruit and some hot dishes as well like sausage etc. It was the best breakfast at a hotel I have ever seen. The only small drawback was it is not really centrally located. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the center of town and the train station is 30-40 minutes, basically on the opposite side of town, but all the positives definitely override that. The front desk staff said a taxi to the train station would be 15-17 Euro. The hotel was also about 20 minute walk from the bus station. There was no shuttle service that we knew of during our stay as others have said. Overall this hotel was superb and I would gladly stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Weekend at Hilton Lecce
Posted Jan 5, 2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel is quite new and it's in very good condition. Good service and comfort. The only thing is that is a bit far from the central part of Lecce, but we had rented a car and that wasn't a problem as bycar it takes only 5min. I would for sure come back at the hotel if I come back to Lecce.
