We spent 2 nights here and it was a nice, clean hotel with a GREAT restaurant! We had a double room overlooking Capri, really nice view! Unfortunately our room did not have a balcony. Electric rouladen shades are provided which is awesome and the A/C unit was remote controlled, the first I've seen of that and pretty nice. There was a very nice sized closet with a chest of drawers and surprisingly we found english language stations on the LCD TV. The room was large but like most Italian hotels we've stayed in the floors are all tile, the bed hard as a rock, sparse linens, and our shower stall unfortunately had a mold issue. Sleep quality wasn't the best in the world due to the road noise and the bed, but we did OK. The pool area was nice and located on the roof so you can't beat the view. However, bring your own towel otherwise you have to pay 2.50 euro to borrow one. The free wi-fi was mostly non-existent for us. I occasionally got it to work in the restaurant but never in our room, so that was pretty annoying. Location wise, the hotel is located in between Sorrento and the Amalfi coast so it's a bit isolated. There is nothing you can walk to but the buses run regularly so you can get to Sorrento in about 20 minutes.
The real value of this hotel was the restaurant. The food was FANTASTIC and was the best we had while visiting the Amalfi coast and Sorrento. The spaghetti with mussels was one of the best dishes I had on this trip and the lemon risotto cannot be missed. The breakfast was great as well with a wide selection of meats, cheeses, bread, and yogurts...and of course several styles of italian coffee drinks!
Overall, it was a good hotel and on par with many other Italian hotels we've stayed at (meaning it's not a luxurious/plush experience but it's clean and quiet and gets the job done)
