I would like to break my review down into two sections: the hostess and the hotel, as my impressions of the two were not the same. High marks to the hostess, "just OK" marks to the hotel.
First of all the hostess/owner, Anna, is really lovely. She gave us a very warm welcome and lots of great recommendations for what to see on the island. She made our stay very enjoyable, and even serves homemade tiramisu at breakfast - what a treat!
The B and B itself was nice enough. It's located in Ischia Ponte, just next to the castle. We had a lovely double room facing the street. The double glazed windows limited street noise, and the air conditioning worked well. I was, however, disappointed by a few things... The wifi was intermittent and extremely weak. Our bathroom sink did not drain properly. Our sheets and towels were never changed in our 4 night stay. We finally asked for fresh towels, and wouldn't have gotten any if we had not. Overall, everything was fine, but for the price, I would have expected more. If these kind of little things annoy you, I would recommend staying somewhere else. I might stay again, but only because Anna was so lovely.
