This hotel was everything we expected it would be! We flew from Baltimore to Rome, took a train from the airport to the center of Rome, from Rome to Naples, and from Naples to Sorrento. It was the longest day of my life, but this hotel made it worth it! The staff was very welcoming and accomodating.
The room was charming! It was a good size compared to ther European hotel rooms, and the view from the balcony was incredible! Even after hubby and I had been up for 32 hours (no lie!) we explored the town a little then came back to the room to enjoy the view from the balcony. The bathroom was large, it had a nice big tub and seperate shower. My only complaint is the lack of washcloths... bring a loofa! I just used a hand towel to shower, it ended up being ok.
The breakfast in the morning was wonderful. The views were again... spectacular. We usually love to sleep in, but made it to breakfast at 8am every morning, even if we went back to bed for a few hours ;o)
One staff member steered us wrong a little. The distance from the hotel to the train station is significant and impossible with luggage. We walked to the train station a few times during our stay, but it takes about 45 minutes depending on the time of day. We inquired about the bus line to one of the front desk attendants and he told us the bus stop was across the street (which it was) and that we pay in euros when we get on the bus. We ended up getting kicked off the bus for not having a ticket in advance (you buy these at the tobacco shops) but luckily we weren't fined and they kicked us off in front of the train station.
We also paid for high speed internet to email our families at home, but there was a problem with the connection. The front desk staff tried to help minimally, but did reimburse us when we gave up.
Overall, this hotel stay was a wonderful experience. We would love to stay again!
