We stayed here in September - and it was truly awful! It is situated on a very busy main road, with traffic passing immediately outside all day and night - which would not have been such a problem had the hotel been a lovely place to stay - which it was not! Our room - indeed the whole hotel - had the makings of somewhere it would be a pleasure to stay, but it was in a very poor state. Our bathroom had a missing shower door, the safe in the wardrobe was not fixed to anything so could easily have been taken, the curtains were hanging off the rail, the fridge wasn't working at all.
The attitude of the staff was very poor - the receptionist couldn't be bothered to speak at all and just waved us away - and never before, in my many visits to Italy, have I been expected to eat a meal served by a waiter with a cigarette in the corner of his mouth! The food was poor and the service worse.
We were unable to sit and have a drink in the bar as there was so-one to serve us, and there was no lounge in which to sit and chat to other guests. The supposed view of the Bay of Naples was in fact a view of the ship or dock yard!
I would suggest you give this place a wide berth!
