1) Excellent views of the Bay and Mount Vesuvius from room balcony and restaurant.
2) Room and bathroom were spacious.
3) Nice buffet breakfast with eggs and bacon. Usually you don’t get eggs and bacon in a continental breakfast.
4) Provision of regular shuttle buses to and fro hotel and town center.
5) The male staff manning the counter was pleasant. And some compliments for the shuttle bus driver who was very nice. Even though he can’t quite communicate in English, he still try his best to point out things to us along the ride.
6) Computers and internet access provided in the lobby.
1) Cleanliness was an issue. Though we didn’t make any complains with the management, we were certainly not pleased with the many stray hairs here and there (bathroom, behind the door, etc). We didn’t dare to go bare-footed and have our slippers on every time we are in the room. The cleanliness is a huge minus point for us.
2) Cupboard was old with a musty smell, so we didn’t dare to hang our clothes in there.
3) The rest of the furniture looks rather old too.
4) The room that we had, there is something wrong with either the lock or the door frame. We have to use some force to open/close the door every time.
5) As hotel is located on the highest point of the hill, you would be quite stranded without their shuttle buses. It is a long way up/down the hill.
6) The shuttle buses doesn’t go to the train station in the morning/early afternoon.
Overall, we were quite put off by the room cleanliness and old/poor state of furniture despite the good views and pleasant staff. If the hotel can up its cleanliness level and always maintain it, I would recommend staying with them.
