We booked Buca di Bacco based on many of the reviews we found on TripAdvisor. On first impressions the hotel was quite nice. A typical Italian 4 star place with small rooms and charm by the sea, pretty much what we expected. However, after first impressions, the story was a little different.
The room was fine but unfortunately it wasn't very clean, there was quite a but of dirt on the floor and a brown ring around the bathtub, this ring wasn't cleaned until I did it on the second day. The power in the room didn't work for a full day. There was also no WiFi signal in our room for 80% of our stay. The quality of the furnishings varies quite a lot too, a lot of it is typical Amalfi style painted white with blue accents, very seaside appropriate. Some of it was disgusting however, the phone in the room was filthy and my bedside lamp looked like it was glued together with bodily fluids.
I don't mind bad hotels so long as they're clean, this was an average hotel that was dirty. I should have known walking in as there was an overwhelming smell of "Glade" room freshener that was clearly covering up the scent of sewage in the main hallway leading to the elevator.
On a positive note, the Buca di Bacco is (almost) right on the water and that's really it.
