8/10 Very Good

Lovely Family Palazzo in center of Lecce.
If you have family who were kind enough to invite you to stay with them in their palazzo, that’s what staying in the palazzo Sambiasso is like. We stayed in a very large apt. in the heart of the old city of Lecce. Easy walking distance to historic sites, shops and restaurants. It’s furnished with beautiful family heirlooms. Francesca and Jose are the kindest of people and very gracious hosts. Breakfast was just beautiful. If you want a modern hotel, this is not it. This is a very unique, old world experience with great charm.

This is an actual Palace with family history from the 16th century. Beautiful, extremely large accommodations. Plus, a full terrace. In the center of Leece and very quiet. Owners are amazing and provided a beautiful breakfast in an elegant environment. A MUST RETURN visit.

Francesca and Cose were excellent hosts. They picked us up at the train station and then brought us to the Palazzo. We had a very large two-bedroom suite filled with antiques and interesting family portraits. Each morning they provided us with a customized breakfast (for an additional price). Francesca also introducted us to a very good guide who showed us several cities in Puglia. Palazzo Sambiasi is extremely well located in the historic area of Lecce. It is easy walking distance to all of Lecce's baroque churches plus the Roman amplitheatre and theatre. We would strongly recommend Palazzo Sambiasi to guests who want to stay in a historic palace in the center of Lecce. Gamal and Erenst
