25 rooms in Lecce’s historic centre where you can work, play and party – and a great breakfast to boot.
We stay in Lecce often. Arryvo was a breath of fresh air. Modern, functional and style-wise seemingly part inspired by some of the boutique hotels common to London’s Hoxton and Shoreditch areas.
Dark, modern decoration takes the place of traditional bright limestone and star vaulted ceilings. A theme that continues through the public bar and reception areas to the residential zones and floors, including the rooms.
The staff were exceptionally pleaseant, helpful and proud. It felt very inclusive, an important consideration for us. Another unique detail during our stay: we did not see a male member of staff. Whether this was by accident or otherwise, it matters only to show the progressive thinking behind Arryvo.
Comfort and style already covered, then comes value. We had an economy double room – with terrace, table and chairs – for one night, for 101€. This included (let us say again, included) one of the most filling and delicious breakfasts we have had during our travels around Puglia.
Starting with coffee, water, fruit juices and pastries. (As an aside the classic Salento pasticciotto is an absolute must for any visitor to Lecce).
A selection of cooked breakfasts follows the pastry selection. It’s not one or the other, but both. We chose scrambled eggs with bacon (a generous, delicious serving) and avocado on toast. The menu also offered pancakes with maple syrup.
Even without the smiling faces of happy and helpful staff we consider that value enough.
Will we be back? What do you think!
