This place has secure parking. The place is gated in. They give u a full breakfast and the staff are pleasant and help full. This isn't somewhere I would stay for an extended period but a night or two u can't beat it.

I stayed at Vesuvio for a few nights in 2008. At that time, it was clean, hot water was temperamental, but occasionally there. We had a room with three beds for one of the nights, and it was very spacious. We ate at the restaurant once, good food, reasonable prices. All in all, for the price, location and space, it... More

A fellow that owns a small shuttle business recommended it to me. It is not for everyone. If you want something modern or upscale, then... More

I stayed at the Hotel Vesuvio for one night. While it was hard to find , once I got there I was pleasantly surprised. It is clean, the service is great and there is a pretty good restaurant on premises. It was not the quietest place I ever stayed but I think that is part of its charm. 10 minute... More

I stayed for three days. You have to first remember this is a low cost hotel. Rooms are clean and basic, bathrooms are a little small, front counter staff are very good, wifi is included all be it slow. The area is safe quiet area and a short walk to city centre. The hotel is fair value
