Well, choosing this hotel turned out to be a mistake! The location is definitely not in the nice part of town, and we didn't enjoy walking through the back streets to get there. It promised so much: a former monastery, full of history and intrigue. In reality, it was very run-down and shabby. It didn't look much like the website.... More

Unfriendly and arrogant Reception, prepaid room too late available, shower cabin (not dry) and hair dryer bad quality, service at the terrace deserves not that name and food quality is lousy. In short: visit only the Terazza on the 4th floor and enjoy the really magnificent view. But do not spend the night or have lunch/dinner. Ise your money wiser.... More

We were in Naples to see the city, the excavations at Pompeii and Herculaneum and to do some shopping. The hotel was perfectly situated for this, with good public facilities around the corner. The hotel itself is a former convent, many original features have been preserved. The hotel shuttle picked us up from the airport. The service in the hotel... More

We were booked into this hotel for two weeks, going by the reviews and information on Expedia. When we arrived we were amazed at the clearly historic building, which in parts was more like a museum than a hotel. We were underwhelmed by the receptionist, who informed us that our room wasn't ready yet but we could wait in the... More

Hotel San Francesco al Monte is on a precipice overlooking downtown Naples (perched above the Spanish quarter) with a magnificent view of the entire Bay of Naples from the majestic Vesuvius to the island of Capri beyond Sorrento opposite. The city literally lies at your feet. A funicular stop (central line) is a 5-minute walk away- the most convenient way... More

A creative venue with charm and good service, above the traffic area of the city offering wonderful My room was very spacious and the conversion of the monastery into a hotel was well done. The dining area is on a floor with outdoor seating available overlooking the city. Service at the bar can be a bit slow.

Two nights stay in this old convent on the hill above central Naples. Very pleasant stay. Rooms are the old monks cells. Bathroom in need of an update. Great roof gardens with a nice small swimming pool. And a mesmerising view of the city. An island of tranquillity , just a ride away with the funicular to central Naples. We... More

This was our second visit in this hotel (originally a monastery). The main reason coming back is the great location - you're just above the gulf of Naples and you have a huge view over. The cable car down directly to the heart of Naples is within few minutes walk and still you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings above the... More
