We stayed at this hotel for 3 days/2 nights and found it to be a good place to stay. We booked a room for 3 people and we found the bedroom to be rather small. We got a double bed and a bottom half of a double-decker bunk bed. The bathroom was also small. The reception staffs were friendly, informative and very helpful. They helped us with the bus schedules to the Amalfi coast, and also with booking of the taxi on the last day.
The hotel is close to the seaside restaurants that are located within the Marina Grande. We spent our New Year's Eve at a restaurant by the sea, and it was great to just stroll back to our hotel at 2.00 am. We don't have to worry about getting a bus or a taxi. The hotel was really convenient for us.
One downside was that on the hotel website it stated that you can request a room with a sea view, but you will not get a balcony with seaview because your balcony will face the road. You can see the sea if you go to the roof terrace. The bedroom was cleaned everyday but the towels were not changed daily. You will have to ask for fresh towels if you want it changed daily.
Breakfast was OK - fruit juices, fresh fruits, cereals, ham, cheeses, breads, toast, yogurt but no eggs; If you want coffee, ask for the espresso or cappucino - these are made fresh using the espresso machine; just DO NOT ask for caffe latte because you will get black bitter coffee from a vending machine and some cold milk. They have black tea or fruit tea, if you like.
The hotel is a little out of town, but you can easily get the bus (Line D) for 1 euro that leaves the Marina Grande every 25 minutes past the hour. If you want some exercise, you can walk up some gentle inclining steps that lead directly to the town. The walk, which takes around 10-15 minutes, is very nice; you get to see awesome view of the sea and the marina as you climb upwards. You can buy the bus ticket (or water and other stuffs) from the small grocery market at the corner down by the Marina.
Overall, we like the hotel as it is a good place to stay.
