“A fine base with a real friendly feel and welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Stayed here end of May on Travelsphere package. The hotel has a fantastic location (including travel on train to Naples or Sorrento) and boasts a huge terrace, lovely garden and first class pool. OK so it is a bit dated but that to me is part of the charm coupled with being family run. Our bedroom was comfortable and clean and had a safe. Only thing I would have liked was tea/coffee making facilities but no real hardship yo have water. All of the staff are fantastic and nothing is too much for them to do for you. While we were there one other group was there for the first couple of nights and two others for the last couple of nights, but breakfast and dinner service went without a hitch despite the numbers. I must admit that I had anticipated pretty mediocre food and was I pleasantly surprised! The least we were offered was a three course meal (and the biggest five courses) and some very interesting and different pasta dishes as the first course - yummy! If anything wasn't to your liking then the staff were only too willing to get a different dish though I personally was more than happy with the offered Italian fare.
To add to the atmosphere with all the tour groups and a few others the staff still managed to cater for a couple of weddings or birthday celebrations in weekend afternoons with the attendant buzz . The decorations and place settings were absolutely out of this world and I am sorry I did not get a picture of some of them.
If I ever decide to visit the Bay of Naples then this will be my choice of base.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were clean, which I find very important. The decor is few decades behind, but I can overlook that. My only problem was wifi Internet that they gave me pas ode for, but my iPad was not even picking up the signal.
Hotel terrace is large with spectacular view of Napoli and Vesuvius.

I recently stayed at this hotel and was lucky to be given a room with a balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples. The smell of wisteria was in the air, and the room was clean and comfortable. All of the front desk staff were patient, smiling and gracious. They always checked to make sure that my stay was running smoothly. The breakfast was adequate and the location in the town is sensational, because it is near to everything, yet quiet and scenic.

Room Tip: I had room 82, which had a lovely view.

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.
