A great safe location located near the center of Naples with fantastic views from its 5 star restaurant and a roof with a pool, unobstructed panorama and a villa like garden feel. The boutique feel offers a nice balance between historic and modern lodging. The Hotel is a restored convent where an actual saint lived and the third floor is... More

I stayed here for three nights on my way to Panarea for a summer holiday. I was so impressed with how lovely this hotel is. Our room was BIG, comfortable bed, good bathroom but the view over Naples was what I loved the most. This hotel used to be a monastery and has been converted into a lovely hotel. Very... More

Location: 9/10. Strategically high location affording great view over bay of naples, and a walk downhill through the classically neapolitan residential view of centro storico. Property: 9/10. Charmingly old and decorated. Extremely beautiful common grounds like terraces. Just the right-sized pool for hanging out in. Lovely place for enjoy breakfast. Room: 7/10. A bit constricted for price, even for age... More

My wife and I, plus 4 teenagers, stayed here for a week in 3 rooms. The location (for its views over Naples and across the bay to Vesuvius) was the best feature of this hotel, and this aspect is enhanced by the 7th floor pool and 4th floor restaurant terraces. Its location means that it is a steep climb up... More

We chose this place as our last stay in Napoli. The hotel is located at the hill side and provides a terrific view over Napoli, in particular if you stay at the garden terrace on 7th floor. When you enter the hotel you get the feeling of entering a monastery with thick walls and a nice inner garden. Very nicely... More

The hotel pool and bar give amazing views over Naples. The location was convenient for the Funicular cable car down to the busy town centre. The staff provided excellent service from reception to the dining waiters/waitresses to the pool attendant - nothing was too much trouble. We had a room for three and whilst the third bed was a sofa... More

Our first impression was a concern about the location. We decided to go everywhere by taxi. Our bedroom was not set up for double occupancy in certain facilities. The air conditioning was overly noisy, the bed was hard and no hot water. The views were fantastic. Our first night dining experience left us feeling disappointed as a result of poor... More

It's up on the edge of the City, and that's good for Naples. It's a great view of course and has character. It does exactly what it says, and does not disappoint. When we were there, there was a wedding on the roof top terrace, and that's great and I have no problem, as I think they restrict the hours,... More

I spent 3 nights at San Francesco al Monte and loved the hotel. The room was comfortable and lovely. Because it's an old convent, there are details everywhere that are interesting and special. The setting is spectacular overlooking the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. Breakfast each morning on the terrace was a joy. I found the concierge very helpful with... More

A converted monastery set into the rock high above Naples, the San Francesco al Monte is full of character. The staff were friendly and helpful and the pool and terrace area were just fabulous. It was great to cool off in the pool after a hot day's sightseeing in the city. The restaurant also had stunning views from the terrace,... More
