Lecce, Italy Hotel Conundrum

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip to Puglia and Basilicata for the end of May 2015 and first week of June, 2015. The conundrum is lodging in Lecce's historical center. There are over 200 B&Bs and only a few hotels. Some of the B&Bs are lovely, but dining can be an issue for us - specifically breakfast. We enjoy communal dining, which doesn't seem to be widely available in the small B&Bs or you need to have breakfast at a neighborhood café. (We don't eat where we sleep and some B&Bs offer breakfast in your room.)

Two large hotels: Risorgimento Resort and Patria Palace Hotel are well-located, but have different styles of hospitality. On one hand, the Risorgimento would be a good choice; it is very modern with a business-like edge. The hotel staff reportedly on Tripadvisor is friendly and kind. However, would we feel like we were on a business trip attending a convention?

On the other hand, he Patria Palace is more traditionally Italian looking, but a few remarks about a surly and/or formal hotel staff. Also one person wrote that the walls between rooms are paper thin.

Has anyone on this board done a comparison of these two hotels and, if so, what was your conclusion?
