The apartment itself is beautiful, clean and in a great location, however we had a huge problem with the booking. Perhaps this BnB had never taken a large booking before (9) but it came up on our searches and seemed perfect for us- as we were renting an apartment it didn’t matter how many people came (up to 9) as the price was the same, we just had to notify the host in advance.
I booked for 7 in the first place and then messaged to change to 9 before we arrived. I thought nothing of this due to the information on the website and the fact I had already paid by card. I eventually heard back from Mari (the host) the evening before saying this was ok and that we could sort it out on arrival.
The problem came when we checked out and we were told we owed triple the price. I disagreed and showed her my entire booking itinerary which had 7 people and 8 people on the booking and a total of 69 euro. We also showed her the AirBnB website which when we made a faux booking for 9 people again showed a total of 69 euro. She still insisted that we owed 3x the price.
We had no idea where this new price came from as it had never been mentioned in any previous communication or on the website. In the end we negotiated a price with Mari but it put a dampener on what was a fantastic weekend away.
Very nice place to stay in Lecce! Close to old city and shopping streets. The flat (better say a house) is big and have old fashioned beautiful furniture. Host is very is hospitable and friendly. We spent wonderful days in the beautiful city.
I just love this B&B! This is the second time staying with Mari and Salvatore. They are both exceptional hosts. My parents were able to join me this time, and they were so happy with the accomodations. Thank you B&B Sama!!
AMAZING HOSTS! This Italian couple truly makes you feel at home. The house is amazing and very clean. I highly recommend this listing!
Mari's appartment is perfectly located, a few minutes walk away from the mostly pedestrain historical center in Lecce. Her gigantic flat has 60's and 70's features that makes it look like some italian pop film set back it that era: it feels great! We had the quietest night as the street was really silent and the bedding was comfortable (this is not the case in most of southern Italy where we found that most of the mattresses were really hard!). The breakfast was elegantly served served on the sunny and spacious terrace, with a great selection of local pastries and organic yogurts: perfect. Last but not least, Mari offered us the possibility to park in her own garage at no cost which was great for the car safety and for our peace of mind (no fines in the morning for unpaid parking ticket, so we did not have to wake up and could enjoy a good rest!). Thanks Mari for offering us the possibility to stay with you and relax at your place at a very good value for money.
We started our vacation/ journey in italy in late august/mid september 2012 in Lecce, and stayed for some nights at Sama with Mari and Salvatore, and we can only recommend it highly. It is situated next to both the old town but also in a next to a very nice shopping area where you get a glimpse of everydaylife. The whole place is swept in a pleasant atmosphere, and characterised by a lot of space, welldecorated, and very relaxed. Our room and private bathroom was really spacious and tastefully designed. Mari and Salvatore are very helpfull if you need any information, and they like children a lot! Our almost two year old son is curious and out to discover the world but that was'nt a problem. Don't skip breakfast - fresh bread and cake, and tasty coffee and milk, and a lot of yoghurt, cookies, marmelade etc. to choose from.
We really cannot recommend Sama high enough!!
Best regards Susan, Janus and Albert

We traveled to Italy last year to visit family and wanted to go to Lecee as well. This was the nicest couple and the cleanest, modern lodging we had. We were very pleased. Lecee is certainly worth seeing. It is beautiful and the city really comes alive at night...during the day it is like a ghost town because most people are at the beach.
Mari and Salvatore are a very nice couple who were really helpful with suggestions and pickup when arriving....They were very willing to engage me in Italian(intermediate level) which was (email hidden)ey also do speak other languages such as English and Spanish I believe
The room was great with plenty of space and a very large bed and the apartment was very very spacious with a very large patio which would be great for sunbathing!......
The location is excellent.....it is quite central and in between the old city and the shopping area downtown..........
I would have no problems recommending them as hosts.....
Mari e Salvatore sono una coppia molto simpatica che era davvero disponibile con suggerimenti e di prelievo quando arriva .... Sono stati molto disponibili ad avviare me in lingua italiana (livello intermedio), che era eccezionale ....... Hanno anche fare altri parlano lingue come l'inglese e lo spagnolo credo
La camera era fantastica con un sacco di spazio e un letto molto grande e l'appartamento era molto spaziosa con un patio molto grande che sarebbe bello per prendere il sole! ......
La posizione è eccellente ..... è abbastanza centrale e tra la città vecchia e il centro di zona commerciale ..........
Avrei alcun problema raccomandando loro come ospiti .....
Siete persone splendide, che ci sono venute incontro a braccia aperte, di una cortesia unica. Grazie di cuore.
