“very modern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We happened upon this hotel very late after a ferry trip from Messina to Salerno. Rooms big, clean. Bed huge. Loved that each floor was a different colour. The view of the water beautiful. I feel it is under resourced for the great location. Not far from Naples, Sorrento and the Amalfi coast, Pompeii and even the ferry from Salerno to Sicily. This hotel would be ideal if those locations were offered by tour organisers. Great value and very friendly/helpful staff.

The hotel was picked by the tour organizers and never did I encounter such a poor choice. It is not that the hotel is that bad but it is so much off the beaten track and the time of year being off season, it reflected! No hot water until they switched it on, takes ages for the water to reach the room, shower niche very small, fittings of low quality and falling apart in an hotel still being "run in". No one speaks English and I needed help to convey my room number to get the key.
On the other hand, rooms are good size, clean (windows filthy, not that there is anything to view save the house some 25 feet across); also total size of bathroom good save the fact that for no need the toilet is well tucked in the corner so you sit "diagonally".
Surrounding is of poor neighborhood, lack of services for tourists such as restaurants, availability of taxi yet you have nowhere to go. No operating restaurant in the hotel, no way to get a hot drink, never heard of cattle in the room (this is not the UK!).
I would classify this hotel as suitable for the local people or for a come late-sleep-leave after one night for the tourist. I would not rate this hotel at the 4* it claims.
There was a spot of light: searching for a restaurant we came across La Voce Del Mare some 15 minutes' walk, see my review for details.

Room Tip: I ask and was told no room is facing the bay, so why bother building it on a hill neer the sea?

I stayed at the hotel in August 2013. We were traveling in South Italy and thought the location of the hotel will be good to travel to and from every day. It was very difficult to find the hotel, especially when the neighborhood area is not the kind of place that you would feel comfortable getting lost. The whole area is old, simple and not too much to do. The hotel itself was just as described on the hotel website. It is new, modern, very clean and comfortable, the rooms are large enough. Breakfast was standard (room for improvement). There is free parking and WiFi.The hotel does not yet have a restaurant and there is not a variety of restaurants in the area to go to. if you are traveling with children, I would not recommend this hotel. In addition, the hotel does not have a pool. the hotel staff was very friendly, trying to assist in every possible way and they were the highlight of this hotel. Overall, the hotel itself has very good potential, except for the neighborhood which really impacts negatively.

I stayed at the hotel at Sep 2013.
The hotel room was big, very clean and comfortable, and goog enough for 3 adults.
The hotel had a nice view over the bay, although the whole area was rather old and simple.
Breakfast was standard, no more.
Free parking & WiFi.
The highlight was the the hotel staf, they were just wonderfull, had a great service attitude, helping in any issue with a big smile.
Especially Francesca and Alexandro !! Thanks a lot
It was almost like home.
