No matter the Napolitean chaos outside, no matter its changeable weather, this hotel offers peace, serenity and most of all an amazing view (both from the rooms as from the restaurant). A perfect starting point for a city trip in an area that is close to the city centre and safe (even after dark). Rooms are clean and bathrooms suprisingly... More

We had been in Italy for 2 weeks. Naples was our final visit. Cons for this hotel. Only one place to eat outside the hotel within walking distance. The hotel restaurant was pretty pricey. They say AC, but their idea of AC and an Americans version, not the same. The in room internet, sketchy at best. Pros, incredible view from... More

We stayed here for four nights last week. What an amazing place. If you are looking for 'Americanised' have a nice day corporate stylie then this is not the place for you. The staff are lovely and very helpful. Rooms clean and sheets and pillowcases changed every day. My only complaint about the room would be the hair dryer. One... More

Dear JBell196 thank you for your comments on TA. We are happy you enjoyed your stay in Naples at our historical property. We only want to let all know that we have a bar on the 4th floor adjacent the restaurant. Of course our best selling point is the view and the magnificent terraces we have at the 4th and... More

Our room, #45, was a very nice room in a very atmospheric hotel. I don’t think anyone had been in our room for a while, as the first night it was extremely humid and damp – but after that, it was fine, and probably would be fine in the summer and during high season. The room had great decoration, from... More

For a romantic stay, we booked San Francesco al Monte because, compared to those 4-5 hotels by the waterfront, it is the only one offering “guaranteed” panoramic views of the city, at an affordable price around 100 Euros. Reaching it by car or by public transportation in a city like Naples it’s an odyssey, incredible anarchic traffic and painful road... More

Good: Views facing sea are fantastic, staff very friendly and helpful, cleaning very good. Not so good: No bar (guess in remembrance of the monks), the hotel is a bit austere lacks a few warming rugs and carpet. Rooms could do with a make over, bathroom grouting, bulbs replacing etc. Breakfast average. No kettle in room. Sirens and fireworks through... More

Hotel sited perfectly to visit Naples and all the major attractions. 300 metres either way leads to a funicular railway and connections to everywhere. Cheap all day ticket covers all services. Views from the rooms, terrace restaurant and roof garden are magnificent taking in the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. Converted from a Monastery about 10 years ago they have... More

Great hotel with friendly helpful staff, especially in the restaurant. We had a lovely spacious room with a view over the Bay of Naples and it was really quiet. The open air restaurant on the 4th floor is fabulous, as is the roof terrace and swimming pool on the top floor. It's not the most convenient location but the payback... More

We booked two rooms here, one for the parents one for us. Theirs was pretty good, high up, roomy, and everything seemed to work (except the hot water the morning they left). We had less success. We had to get the maintenance guy up twice to get the shower to give us warm water (we never graduated to hot!). The... More
