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

It was a pleasure to be here. Beautiful historic environment in a great city. We celebrated our 25th anniversary in this hotel. We loved the decoration of the hotel, the history of the place. The rooms were beautiful and clean, the beds were good. Breakfast in the early morning at the terrace of the hotel with the nice view over... More

If you want to stay in a boutique hotel, don't stay here (previous reviewers are idiots)! If you want to stay in a converted wing of a monastery with fantastic views of the Bay and really friendly staff, then stay here!! You sleep in converted monk's cells and if you don't bother with the lift and explore the floors, you... More

Please don't be fooled by the photos on the website which look very nice, in reality it's a run down hotel on many accounts. I struggle to see why anybody has a positive statement to make about the hotel. Here are the severe issues they have: - It smells damp - the rooms and the hotel are VERY run down.... More

The best thing about this hotel is the view from the 7th floor garden/pool area, which is amazing. The open air restaurant on the 4th floor is a lovely place to enjoy breakfast overlooking the city and bay. We only found a couple of restaurants within easy walk but the funicular down to the centre is only a few minutes... More

This is an amazing hotel with an incredible view of naples. Staff are very helpful and will print out ferry times etc and advise what to see. Our room had a huge window which was like a painting as the view of the city is that good. A jacuzzi bath and good shower. We chilled by the pool taking in... More

Only been here two nights but just had to say what a fabulous place. This hotel has a fantastic rooftop garden an oasis in a crazy city. Tranquility and beauty with a lovely dipping pool (not for exercise but to cool you down) the flowers and shrubs are fantastic. The hot water may be slow to arrive and the cupboard... More

We loved this hotel. Friendly staff, great location, beautiful room. What we particularly liked was the bathroom window. Whilst showering/bathing you have a great view over the city. This hotel is all about the views. I must say we expected the pool to be bigger, but eventually we did not go for a proper swim: the temperature went down quite... More

A very nice hotel converted from a former 16th-century monastery with wonderful views from the bedroom windows across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius. On the forth floor is the terrace where you can have continental breakfast under sun shades also affording the same spectacular view across the Bay of Naples. This is a quiet hotel and you cannot...
