If you want to stay in a boutique hotel, don't stay here (previous reviewers are idiots)! If you want to stay in a converted wing of a monastery with fantastic views of the Bay and really friendly staff, then stay here!! You sleep in converted monk's cells and if you don't bother with the lift and explore the floors, you are greeted with fantastic sights at every turn. We loved the diorama on floor 3, and the dining room just off the corridor is beautiful - great location for a wedding! The staff are really helpful, whether at breakfast (it's continental) - great coffee and fresh pastries, or by the poolside with the best views in Naples. In addition, our room had a safe - I imagine other do too, use it if you need to!! We will definitely return!!
