Nikolaos was great to deal with and so helpful pre arrival - awesome and responsive service. He also arranged a transfer for us from Bari airport which was brilliant. Important to note the apartments are a budget option and shouldn't be confused with the reviews for the suites; it does not include breakfast and is a different service proposition. The... More

We stayed in the Jacaranda suite for 3 nights. Nikolaos was very helpful and kind in that he remembered we had requested this suite, but it was booked before we made our booking. But, when we arrived he remembered we had wanted this room and the others had cancelled. Breakfast was served daily on our patio. The room was spotless... More

We stayed in a very spacious part of the palace, dining room, living room and bedroom, all full of antique furniture. Had our delicious breakfast at our private terrace with a peaceful garden view.

Good things first. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Good location just in the middle of historical center. Very warm welcome of the manager of the place.

From the helpful Niko to the perfect continental breakfasts, we loved our too brief 2 night stay at Palazzo Bernardini.

We have just returned from three nights at this charming palazzo in baroque Lecce. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The accommodation is extremely spacious - consisting of a large lounge/dining area, bedroom to the rear with doors opening on to a beautiful terrace and garden, and a bathroom consisting of a stand-up shower and jacuzzi bathtub. Decoration is traditional... More

Lecce was destroyed by an earthquake in 1743, but had been built up in a relatively short period using the yellowish local sandstone, the pietra leccese. This created an elegant, softly glowing place (Edinburgh in the UK, could be a similar example) ; romantic to the core, especially in the evening with street lamps throwing shadows on the walls of...

Nikolaos, the Manager, was amazing! Everything and anything we needed was provided without hassle. We had one of the suites and it was gorgeous, spacious, and with access to the back patio for a table under the wisteria-blooming for breakfast! Location excellent, Couldn't have had a better experience!
