This wasn't my first choice hotel, but due to unforseen problems in Massa Lubrense, I ended up staying here for 4 nights and enjoyed my time here. The hotel staff and adjoining restaurant staff are friendly and make you welcome. The rooms are clean, but quite basic, however, the view from my room which overlooked the bay was very picturesque. There are a few restaurants in the vicinity and again, the waiting staff are very helpful and friendly. Each time I had a meal I had a complimentary starter of either a bruschetta or tomato/herb type pizza bread, so in the end, I never ordered a starter as it would have been too filling. At the end of a meal I was also always served a Lemoncello, which are quite delicious.
It was a very good location - just a very short walk to catch the boat for Ischia, Capri, Positano etc and when I went to Pompeii, I bought my bus and train ticket at the local gift/tabacco shop, just a few yards away and it couldn't have been easier. Also, I recommend bus and train travel as this really is the cheapest form of travel. I had a hire car, but after a few near misses, (Italian drivers really are the worst I've ever come across - especially girls on mopeds!!) I ended up leaving my car in a nearby garage and travelled by boat, bus or train as this really was the quickest and safest!
I did enjoy my stay here and would be happy to return.
