This hotel is excellent for the amount you pay, the view couldn't be better, the rooms clean (even if a little on the small size) and quiet (unless they have an event on). The food is home made and fresh (no menu), if a bit expensive when compared to Garum (excellent local food) in Pompeii or Viva lo Re (also... More

We stayed at Il Sentiero for three nights. It was a memorable stay, but I probably wouldn't go back. Its only accessible by car/taxi. The road to the hotel is memorable in itself. Don't be alarmed by the poor road; you are going the correct way. No big deal. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, especially the restaurant... More

excellent clean modern hotel. Great service especially Fathi and Chiro. Views out of this world. Last part of the road is rough but don't be deterred. Great parking and A/C. Close to ruins at Herculaneum and super convenient for Vesuvius. We discovered the underground parking for Herculaneum by accident. It's worth finding. Driving in this area is not for the... More

Stayed at this hotel for one evening. Meal and views of Naples at sunset were amazing. This hotel will not be reached by public transportation because it is halfway up Vesuvius . Pack light because you have to carry your bags to your room up the stairs. The meal was a little pricey but very good and the views were... More

Il Sentiero is a hidden gem!!! This is a small family owned hotel. We travelled during the off season and we had the whole hotel to ourselves. The whole hotel stuff was super friendly. Fathi was our receptionist/waiter/translator he speaks 5 languages and he tries to help at any opportunity! This hotel is on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius and... More

Our family of four (two eight year olds) stayed here for four nights in late October. The hotel is small, modern and very clean and well run, and sits on the outskirts of Ercolano, literally on the slopes of Vesuvius, with panoramic views of the bay of Naples. There is a walking trail behind the hotel which leads up into... More

We stayed here in order to visit the ruins at Herculaneum.. This is only a 10 minute downhill drive away and yet out in the peaceful countryside on the slopes of Vesuvius. Very helpful hosts and modern comfortable room on the second floorwith airconditioner and bathroom (no elevator). The hotel has its own large area of ground to explore but... More

Managed to end up here after other booking for hotel nr airport fell through. This is a splendid location with really friendly proprietors, there is a fabulous view over the bay, with a heady scent of the broom flowering in june its a magical location. The food is excellent, best served with a glass of local wine. Rooms are clean,... More

This is a newly and creatively renovated hotel/B&B on the slopes of Vesuvius. The proprietor is fantastic. We were hiking and didn't have a car so he drove us to a restaurant and back (although he does serve dinner, on this night the kitchen wasn't open). The next day he even drove us up to Vesuvius, from where we walked... More

We needed somewhere to stay our first night in Italy, after a late flight in and Il Sentiero looked like it would be great. It wasn't, it was even better. It was the two of us and our daughter who's a little under 3. We had such a great time we stayed for another three nights on our way back... More
