Over the top decor attracts large wedding parties that might exceed your noise tolerance level. The hotel with his owner Don Antonio is featured on Italian reality TV "Il boss delle ceremonie". Our rooms were large showing a little wear. The beds were good and breakfast buffet plentiful. The staff was friendly and helpful and due to our early morning... More

While on vacation, our family group of 12 of stayed for a night in three rooms. We loved this hotel! The building and decor were fascinating. The grounds are amazing. The service was superb. Breakfast was delicious. If I could change a single thing, I would make the location a bit more convenient to shopping and restaurants. Overall, we'd love... More

The hotel is truly beautiful. Very ornate and over the top. Photos throughout the hotel remind of the late 70's when this hotel was the place to be seen, when in Naples.The service was impeccable. From check-in, to breakfast and departure. Everyone was friendly and professional. The breakfast buffet was plentiful. We booked two rooms, one king size and one... More

Visiting in early March I'd half expected to have something of a ghost like feel about the place, the season not having started properly. I could not have been more wrong. This is a fabulous hotel, made so by the truly spectacular staff. Courteous, helpful, patient, kind and above all cheerful, nothing is too much trouble and their hospitality really... More

Stayed for a week and loved every minute of it. The hotel was very ornate and spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and professional. The breakfast was plentiful, ham,cheese, eggs, loads of cakes and a good fruit selection. We had a room which faced the pool and enjoyed watching the weddings in all their splendour. The grounds were spectacular... More

We decided to book this hotel while touring the Amalfi coast, Sorrento and Salerno. We stayed for 4 nights. We needed a twin room but because we booked late, only the triple room was available, so we took that. The room was HUGE. There was a king size bed that was very comfortable. There was another single bed that wasn't... More

Folks, if you have a car and travelling to this area, do not hesitate to take advantage of staying in this unique baroque hotel. You will not b able to replicate this experience of the surrounding in many other places at such an incredibly reasonable cost. The hotel is classically Baroque, beautifully and tastefully (not gaudy) decorated. It provides excellent... More

We stayed for a week as a base to travel the Amalfi Coast, do Vesuvius, Pompei, etc. Well situated for this. The hotel décor was quite spectacular and yes there are a lot of weddings but sitting at the outdoor bar watching the guests each evening was like being at a Milan fashion show each night. And we were never... More

Forget the decor,this is a great option for a family stay whilst you do Pompeii etc - 20 minutes up the motorway.Our room was spacious for 5,quiet and with lovely views to the hills. The pool was just the right temperature, with plenty of sun beds and a good size. The staff,especially Danillo,were charming and helpful. We ate at the... More

We have just returned from ten days at this hotel, which we enjoyed very much. As others have said its main business is weddings, sometimes two or three a day. The weddings seem to be fairy princess affairs, but we could use the pool throughout and the wedding guests seemed not even to notice, let alone mind. Probably what makes... More
