Arco Vecchio is located in a historical building with a restructured interior, close to the main attractions of Lecce. The design is contemporary and unfussy, and the accommodations are extremely comfortable. Breakfast is adequate, but not outstanding. The staff were extremely helpful and gracious, responding to all requests immediately. Since this is a B&B, however, at certain times of the... More

Clean, well-designed rooms with balconies. Good breakfast and perfect location. I couldn't ask for more. I enjoyed my stay very much. I would love to stay here again. The restaurant at the corner is very good, creative and delicious cocktails are waiting for you at Prohibition Bar and 45 Bar just within 100 metres. You are at the heart of... More

I stayed here for a couple days a few weeks ago on a business trip. This cute little hotel was wonderful ... right in the heart of the old city and within walking distance of all sorts of restaurants, shops and the old Roman amphitheater, it was perfect. I'm planning on coming back with my wife for a few days... More

This Bed And Breakfast is amazing. The quality of the bedrooms and bathrooms is of the highest standard. A super hairdryer and bath robes! Good breakfast and secure parking offered. The location is very convenient to the centre. Ok it doesn't have a bar but there are many ones within a few minutes walk and excellent restaurants. Lecce is a... More

Nice modern hotel a few minutes walk from the historic centre of Lecce. Quiet location although difficult to find due to one way streets and limited access roads, which you must ignore to get there. Garage parking is available. Very clean and minimalist, and very white. No coffee making facilities but breakfast included. Generous continental breakfast, with the best chocolate... More

Had booked somewhere else in the old city but they relocated us to Arco Vecchio. This was a great stay. Ultra modern in design, good sized room, lovely bathroom...hard to find anything negative. The location was central for everything and we even achieved parking right outside!. Would recommend

Why people describe places as 'hard to find' in these high-tech days, I can't imagine. Don't they look at online maps and haven't they ever heard of Street View? I only had to virtual-walk from the station to this hotel once and I knew exactly how to get there. It is extremely simple! The hotel is a masterpiece of simple... More

Very central with garage parking. Rooms are modern, clean and functional. Reasonably quiet at night. Our sat nav could not work out the one way system but persistence, patience and trial and error in the general direction did in the end. Would recommend as good value, central accommodation.
