We stayed for seven nights in the Villa Signorini and recommend the hotel. We did not stay in the main building (the palais), but in one of the smaller buildings located in the garden where there are a number of lemon and grapefruit trees, which were full of flowers and fruits. Very nice for a small walk after dinner and from the terrace you can even get a glimpse of the sea.
The breakfast and dinner are good, but take a little getting used to - main minus from the stay is that the TV in the breakfast / dinner room was nearly always switched on, which is a bit weird for an otherwise very nice restaurant with silverware and nice tablecloth. But my spaghetti with clams and prawns were so delicious that I did not really notice the gameshow in the background. The wine list is not too large, but nice wines for very reasonable prices.
The room was clean and quiet - the only noise came from the peacocks kept in a (for our feeling way too small) cage in the garden.
The people at the reception were very helpful and friendly with giving us tips and directions for our sightseeing program and for the bigger part did speak English.
A plus is that the archeological site of Ercolano is within walking distance. The public transport to Naples and Pompei (Circumvesuvio) is within 15 minutes walk - we had a car, which was nice for transporting our luggage, as with a number of large bags the walk would have been challenging. The general train station would be within five minutes walk - but it is difficult to buy a ticket as the ticket counter seems to be permantently closed.
In summary we can recommend the Villa Signorini and would book it again if we get the chance to visit the area one more time. There would still be a lot of sights to visit.
