Antonio Mansi, the general manager of Hotel Parsifal, created such a warm, welcoming environment through his kindness to all of the guests, willingness to pitch in on all tasks around the hotel, and hiring of equally good-humored, attentive staff, that we never wanted to leave. He arranged for a driver to pick us up at the Naples airport (it is very hard to get to Ravello otherwise), and the taxi driver allowed us to spontaneously stop at Pompeii for two hours before we arrived at Ravello around 12:30. Mr. Mansi showed us three rooms to choose from and we picked the smallest but one with a tiny balcony with table and two chairs with a heavenly view of the coast (which we had reserved). We were served a delicious lunch before heading off to Ravello by foot. The dinners were better than those we had in Venice or Florence, breakfast was fine, and they have free internet and wireless so we could stay in touch with our daughter at home. Rooms are simply furnished but clean. All the guests seemed happy and pleased to be at this charming little hotel at a price ($185 which included breakfast and another meal) that seemed like a bargain, especially considering the glorious location and staff. They are doing lovely renovations which will make the property all the more inviting. Could not recommend it more highly and know we will return some day.
