    « OK Hotel for staying few nights »

    This is our first hotel of the Puglia fly & drive roundtrip in September. The hotel is situated outside Lecce and the GPS cannot track this hotel, because this hotel has no street name. So, the last few kilometers we switched on Google Maps and search the hotel name. The rooms are quite spacious, the staff friendly as you would expect in these types of hotels. There is a hotel bar that is open 24 hours, but no restaurant. There are a few in the neighbourhood.

    « on the way to Brindisi »

    Modern building with ample parking outside the hotel. Good value for money. Location outside the city of Lecce but not too far to still explore. 10% discount at the next door restaurant. Very friendly and competent staff! Clean, quiet spacious rooms!

    « Excellent Value for money »

    We stayed here for 2 nights during a 3 week tour in Italy. It proved to be excellent value for money. It was difficult to find but was modern and spotlessly clean and had one of the best showers I have ever used with jets from the wall as well as overhead. It was a little way out of Lecce but during the day used the shuttle bus to get in. The staff were exceptionally friendly and breakfast excellent.

    « Very good »

    Location: a short drive to Lecce; a short walk to a restaurant; quiet, away from city Parking: large, free on-site parking Breakfast: quite good-fruits, croissants, American coffee Front desk staff: pleasant & helpful Wifi: good; free Room: nice, clean, comfortable; mini-fridge. Would've nice to have complimentary water & kettle Overall: recommended

    « Very good hotel »

    It's located on the outskirts of the city so it's suitable if you drive. It's only 10 minutes from city center by car. Modern building with nice modern rooms. The staff is nice and helpful. Ample parking. Breakfast is excellent, nice selection and good presentation.

    « The most modern hotel I have ever occupied: but watch the wi-fi »

    Out of town a bit but plenty of parking and a very modern, sparkling clean hotel! But the wi-fi was a bit of a problem to get on. Three (3) clerks spent a good deal of time trying to get me on their system. One finally succeeded just before I eft in the morning. I had not had such a problem in any other Best Western, or any Italian hotel. They might want to check their system.

    « Innovation and tradition »

    I visited this place as a guest of a birthday party. I was impressed by overall professional service. What surprised me most was a tiny finger food that re-interpreted a traditional rural dish: "fave e cicorie" (fava beans and chicory): 2 inch round salty biscuit with a fava bean cream topped by a green hemisphere of chicory gelatin.

    « a really nice place, very clean and very modern, plenty of parking »

    My wife and I had two unplanned days to spend in the Lecce area and called the Best Western (locally called Leone di Messapia) and they had a room. The place is lovely, quite clean and new. The room is very comfortable and completely satisfactory. The hotel is a little bit "out of town" but the hotel does provide transportation (3 euros one way, 5 euros round trip) to the Centro Historico of Lecce. There is plenty of parking similar to what you have in the US. There is an associated restaurant within 300 meters (not great with metric but an easy 5 minute walk) from the hotel that is a huge (and I mean huge) converted farm structure. The food was fine, the menu was varied and long and the prices quite reasonable. You probably want to brush up on your Italian culinary phrases before you go. I recommend it more for convenience than gastronomic excellence. Unless you know the area very well, do plan on using a Garmin or something similar. On balance, it's a pretty good place and I felt a good value. Good free breakfast (typical of higher end Italian hotels), free parking, free WiFi and a friendly staff.

    « Not far from Lecce »

    This is a nice hotel, accommodation and prices are very good. It is a modern hotel, very clean, and excellent value for your money. Good breakfast, with fresh fruit although the ham a bit old.. The staff is very nice, helpful and willing to help. Our first day was nice, but when we went for breakfast, (we were five) the person we talked to wasn't willing to put two tables together or to sit us on a round, bigger one. Once we went to the reception and asked if there was any trouble in doing this, it was arranged and the next day they put us together on the big table. Parking is available, and you can take a shuttle to the city. We got lost because GPS doesn't recognize the place.. But even with that minus, we did find the hotel and enjoyed it.

    « Clean and contemporary »

    10 min car ride from town! Large comfortable rooms with free wifi that works well. Breaksfast included (asked for espresso or cappuccino, yogurt and fresh fruits) good service! Nice bar with good local wines and good prices.

    « Excellent Accommodations »

    Hotel is outside the town of Cavallini.....I had trouble finding it....nearby gas station counter staff confirmed they get a lot of frustrated drivers who cannot find this place.....hotel staff additionally confirmed clients have difficulty finding GPS couldn't find it, iPhone map couldn't find it, and I couldn't find it.....Italy doesn't have attention-grabbing signs, or American-style lit-up hotel signage, so trouble finding hotels was a recurring theme for me......finally found it looking up at building and saw painted name on side of hotel (not lit, just painted name)'s down the street away from gas station and hang a right (look up, you'll see the tall hotel and its signage). I had not been looking up. This was a great hotel: very welcoming Staff, very nice large room, good free wi-fi, modern good a/c - thermostat control, openable large windows if you prefer, big shower enclosure (you can spread your elbows and not hit the walls), good b-fast for all nationalities (in huge banquet-type hall), adequate English-speaking staff, large free parking lot on site, and it's next to main boulevards and highways for easy access. I traveled into town next morning (had actually been there 3x the night before, trying to find the darned hotel) -- very nice town, enjoyed learning about Cavallini's Messapian origins....a nice mansion off the square where town's 1700s Spanish ruling family once resided, containing still-extant frescoes....the friendly grounds staff opened up rooms for me to tour....ended up really liking the hotel and the town of Cavallini, despite frustrating experience finding hotel.

    « Holiday »

    Excellent value for money, as standards were those of far more expensive hotels we have stayed in. Very comfortable, well-appointed room and shower-room. A good and varied breakfast, which would have been perfect if the ham and cheese had been better quality. We would definitely stay there again. You would need a car to get into Lecce.
