“Fantastic staff and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We stayed here for a week on a Travelsphere (Page and Moy) holiday staying half board at the hotel. Paid £160 (£80 each) for an upgraded room, which was well worth the money, as ours was quiet and clean, being on the top floor at the back (only two rooms on our corridor), with a private terrace and a wonderful panoramic view across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. Beds were comfortable and there was the added bonus of a small safe in every room, which was most useful. The staff were helpful and friendly. They were good at organising special vegetarian meals for us. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Food was fine and portions quite generous. The house wine was a good price (E8 for red and white and E10 for rose) and of reasonable quality. Water at E1.50 a bottle was a welcome addition at dinner, the weather being hot, dry and sunny throughout the week. Hotel has pretty, well-kept grounds and is very handy for the town centre with its shops, bars, restaurants and only a five minute walk from the railway station. The wisteria was in full bloom on the terrace and its scent heavenly. The view from the terrace across the bay to Vesuvius was very picturesque,
Other guests staying - the party of Australian 6th formers were polite, mature and well behaved - unlike the younger European schoolkids who were a bit excitable and noisy. Hotel very kindly put those groups in the other dining room so we more mature guests would not be disturbed at dinner. We much appreciated that.
Overall, we had a very enjoyable holiday, with a lovely group of like-minded people, and an excellent guide/group leader. Would highly recommend the hotel and the holiday. Thank you for looking after us so well and making it a most memorable and interesting week.

I was at this hotel in January for a conference of about 25 people. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The location was great (right on the coast, just five minutes from the train station with connections to Naples and Sorrento), the staff was very friendly, and the food was wonderful.

I was concerned before going that maybe my room would be cold, but it turned out to be very warm! There's a thermostat in each room.

I would love to go back in the summer, though I really enjoyed it in the winter.

Room Tip: I had a room on the south side so I had a view of Naples.

Stayed with family recently. Convenient to railway without any noise and with great view over the bay to Mt Vesuvius. Able to get to Pompeii, Sorrento and the ferries to Capri by rail easily. Based in the lovely little town Vico Equense . Room quite compact but functional. Good base for trips to Amalfi etc... Staff were helpful and breakfast was very nice.

The staff at Hotel Aequa were incredibly accommodating and helpful with taxi arrangements, site-seeing advice, and restaurant recommendations and reservations. The views from the hotel are outstanding.

Room Tip: The views of the Bay of Naples are fabulous. Be sure to get a room with a view.

This was our third stay this year, July, September and we have just returned from a long weekend stay. I do not think it is luck that each time there is a warm welcome and they greet us by name. The room is always perfect and any request is dealt with immediatly. This is a quiet period so beautiful coffee and fluffy omolette is served by request, always fresh fruit and a good choice of things on offer. We were there to meet with friends and buy some lovely food for Christmas, salami, cheeses and cake. The hotel and the town had some really nice decorations. Even though our stay was late November we found the weather sunny and bright, so we were able to make full use of the balcony and terrace. We book our trip direct with the hotel, not as part of a package, so our likes are personal, not what is arranged by an agent for a large group. As usual its ellegance makes it very Italian.

Room Tip: Book with the hotel direct, discussyour needs.

The staff and hotel itself were great. Nothing was too much trouble for the reception, bar and waiting staff but the food offered on our Page and Moy tour left a bit to be desired. As I would assume that the quality and choice would be down to guidelines set by Page and Moy costings, I still believe that the dishes that were served could have been tastier. There was a lack of seasoning and salt and pepper were kept out of sight of the diners. I would return to this hotel but not on a tour and find my own meals in the very charming and picturesque town of Vico Equense.
The hotel itself has a bit of age but that lends to the charm of it. The rooms were always clean and the minibar stocked everyday. There are beautiful views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius from the terrace. Our room did have a balcony but faced the main street which could be a bit noisy.
