“really a "grand hotel"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

I stayed at the "Vanvitelli" for 3 nights in July 2012 and I can say it’s an excellent hotel; if you want a nice quite stay in a classy hotel then this is the one for you, if you are looking of something simple choose another place;
The rooms are medium size, clean, with an old tv and very noisy air conditioning unit.
I had a wonderful breakfast every morning and the waiters are very polite.
The hotel is only about 10-15 minutes away from the city center where you can fine nice restaurants and bars (my favourite restaurant is " Locanda Battisti" fish specialties - located in the Caserta City center).

not very valuable: the reception staff could be more friendly and helpful....

If you want your wedding to be referred to as a miracle and a new-born wedding wonder, this is exactly the place you are looking for!

We were in agony looking for a venue for our wedding dinner. Among numerous villas in Campania that offer you wonderful views over exotic gardens in blossom and various restaurants and castles that tempt with the promise of the picturesque pleasure of Il Golfo di Napoli including the impressive as ever Vesuvio, we found ourselves to be desperate to have our demands to the quality and diversity of the dishes satisfied. Do not forget that at an Italian wedding 'il cibo' is the element that matter most at the end.

But lucky as we may have been, we finally found the perfect harmony of style, service and class - the Grand Hotel Vanvitelly!

The event was organized perfectly.

The guests from the abroad were relaxing in spacious and extra comfortable rooms of the hotel, by (or even inside) the swimming pool, in the gorgeous restaurant that offered not just a breakfast but the selection of the best breakfast ideas of the world. Our friends were literally scandalized by the beauty and luxury of the place calling it the paradise of Caserta!

The wedding party itself was extraordinary as ever. The guests were offered an exquisite selection of dishes served in an unforgetabble manner from the point of view of both the gentility of the sruff and the originality and style of the dishes decor.

It was one of the rare cases when you wanted the party last forever!

And the first wedding night in a junior suite of course, too! The discovery of djakuzi and cold shampagne contributed to the force of perception of the magic of the place and time!

Tha Grand Hotel vanvitelli is really GRAND if you ask me and almost 100 other people that I know!

Stayed at this hotel on 3 occasions the last being a whole 2 weeks. Location not too good if your not driving but easily accessible by road. The pool is good and I've only ever shared it twice. Restaurant is good but can't afford to eat there every night , nice little pizzeria in slip road leading into hotel grounds and a MacDonalds a short walk away ( ok when feeling lazy). Breakfast best time of the day and loads of it and not bad all round. Had a few hiccups the jacuzzi bath didn't work but not bothered and seemed to get the odd power glitch during the night which released the door locks momentarily. 2 bars one in the main building in the atrium bit too wide open, other bar in other building became my favourite as quiet with good staff.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights from 17/06 until 19/06. On arrival a very friendly person behind the reception which is a very nice first feeling. The room was nice and big and clean. Bathroom nice and clean, the only thing is that the shower cubicle could be a bit bigger (I am slim and still felt a bit small).
Location suited me as the factory we visit is just 5 minutes driving from the hotel, if you need to go to the centre of Caserta is less than 10 minutes drive. The hotel has plenty of parking space that is secure as they shut the gates during the night. So if you are looking to be in the centre it is not good but if you are for work and look for easy parking and a quick exit to the motorway is excellent,
We ate at the hotel restaurant as Sunday nights in the area most restaurants are closed and the food was very very nice and again the waiters were excellent and very friendly.
Although there on business the pool came handy as it was very hot, nice pool. The beds are just behind the pool rather than around, so they are a few steps on.
Staff happy to recommend and book a restaurant for us for the Monday evening.
I'll come back again when in the are on business.

Room Tip: I like the rooms that face the inside hall, which by the way is very nice to see with loads of natur...

This was our second visit to the Grand Hotel Vanvitelli and, once again, we were thoroughly impressed.
Easy to locate, the hotel offers a warm, elegant welcome in an otherwise fast-paced and somewhat frenetic city. The reception speaks perfect English, and is patient to indulge one who insists on practicing their Italian (me). The lobby is beautiful, and we have found the rooms (in both the buildings, and furthermore both the "internal" and "external" rooms) are clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Bathrooms are modern and well stocked with all the necessities, wifi access works perfectly, and the in-room safes are efficient. Our beds were very comfortable, sheet quality superb. Breakfast was included in our room price and what a breakfast it was!..each day fresh hot and cold choices were thoughtfully laid out and graciously replenished, and served in an elegant sunny side room, just off the main lobby.
We highly recommend the Grand Hotel Vanvitelli!

Room Tip: Most recently, Dave and I stayed in a corner suite, just above the side entrance and on the highway...

The hotel is very nice, the bedrooms are big enough and the interiors are perfect. you can have a good dinner at the restaurant even if it's not really cheap, but it worth the cost. the only problem is the position, in the middle of a big road, crossing with a highway bridge. but don't worry, u won't listen any car while sleeping....
the service is very good and the hotel price is really interesting.

Wonderful hotel, the 5 rooms that we booked were all exceptionally clean and well proportioned. Our breakfast was excellent as was the very late evening meal. (Late because we were delayed!). The facilities could not be faulted and the staff were polite and helpful. The Hotel building is beautiful and the pool lovely ! I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The town of Caserta is not so wonderful but dont let that put you off !
