This was a massive disappointment. Rooms were worse than a Hotel 6- very basic, with many flies in the room. We did not get an air conditioning remote. Dogs were barking all night long, not to mention screaming children playing on a playground immediately below the room at midnight. Breakfast consisted of rotten fruit, stale bread and a few yogurts, generic corn flakes, diluted juice. The pool was FREEZING cold even in early September. You could not swim comfortably. We had a problem with the lock breaking on one of the rooms. The surly staff did not apologize, but told us to stay in the lobby and listen to the really bad singer who was croning Neopolitan folk melodies. We were told that there were frequent buses to the Palace, but buses did not show up, so we were ripped off with the taxi going into town, but we had no choice as we waited over 1 1'2 hours for a bus. The village of Casertavecchia is charming and worth the visit, but this hotel is awful. I would recommend visiting Caserta as a day trip from Rome or Napoli, but NOT to stay overnight. The Palace is a hidden gem- World Hertitage site with very few tourists, mostly Italians. This is a must see. Rent the bikes and pedal through the park.....incredible. In short, avoid this hotel.
