Good value for the view alone! Fantastic view from most of the rooms and all the public terraces of this hotel. Room was comfortable and very clean, with thorough cleaning every day. The small lagoon style thermal swimming pool is gorgeous and the pool is warm and never busy (even in July) - very relaxing and peaceful. Bus stop is literally at the bottom of the steps to the hotel, very frequent, so it is no problem to get either to Maronti Beach (5 mins) or Ischia Ponte (20 mins), so it's easy for ferry/hydrofoil connections. An adequate breakfast, not buffet style, but there are croissants, bread, jam/honey/nutella, cheese/meat if you like and coffee/hot chocolate and juice if you ask. Helps to have a bit of Italian to communicate with the staff, they are efficient but not very chatty or cheerful (or maybe that was due to my limited Italian). Free wi-fi in the hotel public areas and a PC for use if you need it.
We were a bit disappointed, having paid for a seaview room, to be allocated a room on the side of the building (No 29) which meant our tiny terrace joined on to another room's larger terrace and we only had half a seaview, but the lovely pool area compensated for this. The hotel rooms do not have air-conditioning - which may be a problem for some in the heat of July/Aug; we found it ok though with the windows left open and shutters closed.
All in all: very clean, good value and beautiful location.
