We thought we were fortunate enough to get a room with a view - gorgeous view of Castel d'Ovo and the bay. Out on the terrace, we even had a view of the slopes of Vesuvius. The staff was very professional and friendly. The room itself very clean and well maintained - although the bathroom could possibly do with an update; it looked a bit 80's, even if everything was in excellent working order.
The location is right in front of the marina and about 10 min walk from the ferry/hydrofoil terminal, as well as some of the sights. However, if you want to get to most of the main sights, you will need to cab it as there is no bus or metro stop nearby.
The only thing we wish was better was sleep quality. The bed was a composite of twins and they weren't particularly comfortable. More problematic, however, was the noise from outside. Yes, you can hear your neighbors, but most of it gets drowned out by noise from the street. Even with the outside roll shade down, the noise from the traffic (cars, Vespas, and pedestrians) came through loud and clear. Ear plugs don't help either. We probably only got about 2 hours sleep each night. Things are quieter around 4-6 am...
