The hotel had very low occupancy when we visited, and we were able to get a prime room with great views of town, just a short (downhill) walk along the coastal highway. No fault of the hotel, but November seems pretty clearly to fall into the off-season, with about half the town's restaurants closed, and rain a regular threat.
Our room was very spacious, albeit with a dated "50's" feel to the decor. The one area that really needed improvement was the very blah breakfast buffet -- perhaps due to the low occupancy. Coffee machine instead of staff-brewed coffee was a turnoff. Front desk and breakfast room staff nevertheless were helpful and friendly.
Transportation tips: We were without car, but the (regional) SITA bus (toward Positano) stops right outside the hotel, so that's a good alternative to 10-minute walk back up the narrow cliff-side road to the hotel after wine & dinner. (Pick up the bus at the "town square" down by the water.) The hotel's advertised free shuttle into town does not operate after October. We found that the SITA bus system worked just fine for travel to Ravello, Positano, and Sorrento, and we could have easily taken it from our arrival train station in Salerno, but instead took the hotel-contracted driver service -- Gerardo; very pleasant -- for 90 Euros. He was helpful in getting us oriented to the area, as first-time visitors. (If arriving by train, go to Salerno - much closer than Naples.)
Dining tips: Hotel restaurant was closed for the season. We really enjoyed Locanda del Marinaio, across the street from Da Gemma, in town.
