The hotel has the most beautiful location and after complaining that I I paid for a room with a view of the harbour we were moved to a room which had the best view ever. The room was small but clean and well maintained for such an old building. We eat once on the terrace near the pool which was... More

The hotel itself is nice. Great views, room is clean and fine. The location and the service are the negative. It costs about 10 euros in taxi to take a taxi from here to anywhere. The hotel staff wasnt friendly at all and really didnt help us out in terms of giving us any direction of where to go and... More

The reviews about the views are all correct. We had a good room. However, money was stolen from our room upon reporting this the hotel staff were non chalante and gave us some anecdote about how a mother had thought the same but her daughter had moved it. This was not helpful. I asked if they would talk to the... More

I almost cancelled my booking in this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor - I am very relieved I did not. It is a quirky, charming, beautiful hotel in an amazing setting. Unlike the typical chain hotels it has character. The views are absolutely stunning, it is very well located in a nice area away from the hustle... More

this hotel practices overbooking so it is good to check once or twice before going there, to be sure that there is actually a room for you when we arrived, we were told that the swimming pool had collapsed from the top floor to the sixth floor (!) meaning that we had to go to another hotel "5 minutes" away...

A very special hotel, with nice decorated rooms, interesting swimming pool and the most important thing might be the view of Naples and Vesuvius ! Very kind and friendly personal ! Awesome experience !

We booked this hotel through a booking engine starting from Tripadvisor. As we travel with our 2 kids (10 and 12 years old) we found it important to have two neighbouring rooms. As it was not clear in the booking process that it was ok, I mailed to the hotel and was reassured. On arrival we found out that it... More

The rooms were nicely decorated and pleasant to stay in. Even though it's a converted monastery, it had a very modern feel. Only complaint was that it was a bit of a walk to public transportation, but Naples is reasonable by taxi.

The view is to die for! We were on the sixth floor and the windows looked out across the city to Vesuvius and the bay of naples. It was amazing to wake up to this and watch it change during the day and night. This hotel made our Naples trip extraordinary. The hotel is embedded into the mountain and you... More

This hotel is all about the beautiful historic building, and the amazing view. Our room was made up of two converted monks cells, and a half a cell for the bathroom. Compared to other Italian hotels we have stayed in, the room was really spacious. We had two windows, both overlooking the city, and our shower was built across the... More

Hotel San Francesco offers serene views over the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius ana Capri Island and easy access to the colourful Naples street life. ... more   less
