Stayed at this hotel on a package tour with Riveria Travel. In Room 510 - extremely noisy from the traffic below. Did request a room overlooking the bay and Vesuvius and asked to be moved on arrival but was told there were no other rooms apart from one which was further down the corridor with an even a worse view of the street. I am led to understand that 'the rooms with a view' are for the Americans (there were a lot of them there). Room 510 was very clean and there was plenty of room. There were no coffee or tea making facilities in the room which is disappointing as you can find these even at a Travelodge. There is a fridge but obviously nothing in it but handy for your own cold drinks. Water can be purchased from the machine in the corridor for 1 Euro. Breakfast is okay, the usual cold cuts, toast, cakes etc with scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages from the hot tray. Coffee from the machine is not great however the waiter will bring you hot water in a pot to make your own (there is decaffeinated coffee in sachets). We were on half board but only ate in the Restaurant twice for dinner. Evening meals are not great but are okay for emergencies. We were too tired on the two occasions to eat out. The roof terrace has nice views but the pool is tiny. Genarro (our bar waiter - sorry about the spelling) was fantastic and had our drinks ready every evening before going out. Staff are all very nice. We ate at The Red Lion (le Lion Rossa), Dolfo (which is further out but the restaurant run a free pick up and drop off bus - brilliant), Trattoria Da Gigino, La Laterna, La Bascilia, Each restaurant better than the previous. Genarraro will direct you on how to get to them. If you go to Ravello and want lunch can highly recommend Salvatore - amazing views and food. Could have stayed there all day.
The Riveria tour was excellent and we were well looked after by the very knowledgable and funny Adrian. Thanks for a great time Adrian. My only other disappointment (apart from the hotel) was Naples, would never wish to visit again. Dirty, noisy and crowded.
