“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This hotel was spectacular; I do not understand any of the negative ratings. We did upgrade our standard room to one with a seaview overlooking Mount Vesuvius – it was glorious and worth the extra money – we stayed there for 4 nights, so it was nice to wake up to that. They have free wifi everywhere in the hotel including the room.

Breakfast was perfect, we had it every day in the terrace overlooking spectacular views; the service by the staff was impeccable, and a special mention to Luca, he was great. We had dinner at the restaurant in-house, it was pricey but worth it, the food was delicious, if you are going to splurge, do it here.

Unlike suggested by some reviewers, this hotel is less than a 3 minute walk to the Circumvesuvia (train), you can get the tickets at reception – 1.60 euros/per person.. It takes you to Pompeii, Sorrento, Naples, etc. In addition, they have a shuttle that will take you to the town of Vico Equense, if you book it. They were wonderful!

By the way, if you do take the train to the hotel, please get off at Seiano, and call the hotel, they will have a shuttle pick you up. I did not know this, so I spent a fair bit of time freaking out because I didn’t know how to get there and couldn’t find a taxi. It is a small town/village.

We loved the beautiful view and friendly staff here. We stayed for 5 nights as part of our Italian honeymoon and this was truly a gem! We woke up to a beautiful view of Mt Vesuvius and the ocean everyday. A quick train ride to downtown Sorrento and Pompeii and also a stop for the Capri shuttle boat. Just perfect!

This is a beautiful hotel overlooking the Bay of Naples. I cannot say enough about the view of Vesuvius from the restaurant. It is amazing. The staff were wonderful -- so kind, helpful, and thoughtful. Our garden-view room was lovely and well-appointed. If you are traveling by train, make sure that you have a phone to call the hotel for the shuttle pickup. There is no pay phone in the tiny train station although we saw many pay phones throughout Italy. We had momentary panic when we arrived, but were finally able to flag down a cab with a driver who didn't know where the hotel was -- even when I showed him the address. It turned out to be 2 minutes away, but I had to talk to the driver's English-speaking friend on his phone to make sure that we were headed in the right direction. It was a bit of an adventure, but nothing serious.

We had a wonderful meal at the restaurant on our first night and then went to Sorrento by train on the second night. There are not a lot of restaurant/shopping options in Seiano and we didn't expect that. I definitely recommend this hotel, but you need to understand that the location is before Sorrento. If you want to see Positano and Amalfi, you will need to take the train to Sorrento and then hop on a bus to see those towns. It didn't work out for us because we were only staying 2 nights and chose to see Pompeii and than have dinner in Sorrento, but that's just another reason to go back.

We stayed at this nice hotel for 3 nights. The staff was so welcoming and very friendly. The lady who greeted us at the check in was extremely nice.
The location of the hotel was excellent with an amazing view from the breakfast terrace.
From the outside, the hotel is beautiful. I loved the entrance to the hotel, the big jar, the beautiful view, the small church right next to it.
Another big advantage was the free parking availability.
The only small disappointment was the size of the room and a strong smell of cigarettes.
We did book a standard room so it was a small one and as for the cigarettes, we left the window opened every day before leaving the room so it was ok at the end.

My wife & I stayed here for ten days in September & had a really great time, the superior room with sea view was not the largest I'v stayed in but it was well appointed, clean & the view was to die for, as for the rest of the hotel it was always very clean & well kept. We always found the staff very friendly & helpful especially the guy that ran the bar & the receptionist Josephine. The hotel is a little isolated but there is a railway station nearby which offers a good service to Sorrento or Naples & buses are plentiful. I can understand why this hotel would not appeal to everyone as I don't think its suitable for families with children but I would not hesitate to stay there again. Thank you all for making our stay so memorable.

I can't compliment the staff enough. They were overly helpful in resolve a couple of problems (rental car & airline) which occurred during our stay.

The view from the bar and restaurant overlooking the Bay of Naple and Mt Ves were outstanding. Breakfast on the terrace was great, good and plentiful food.

Hotel design was very modern, which would explain the "starkness" comments of some guests. Swimming pool is adequate. The top floor is a large terrace which was a nice place to enjoy a bottle of wine at the end of the day. Shuttle is available to the beach and to the Vico Equese city center. Train station to the Circumvensia is only a few hundred yards away and the shuttle did drop us off. Herculeneum was 45 min on the train, Pompei about 25 min. Well worth the cost to considering cost to park at each attraction.

We stayed in room 203 which had a nice terrace and partial view of the bay.

My only negative comments relate to the mattress which literally was as hard as a rock and the shower which was only 16 inches wide on the narrow end by three feet. In the hotel's defense all bed mattresses in Italy seem hard as a rock, but I don't think I'm being overly critical. At the end of the day what any hotel is selling is a good night's sleep.

We stayed here the summer of 2013 with kids. We booked a family suite. The room was incredibly large but bare bones. There were no pictures on the wall, no artwork except a few vases. No carpets or rugs. The room felt sterile like a hospital room, not a 5 star hotel. The bed was uncomfortable. My children complained they could feel wires poking them in the back when they slept. To their credit, they did replace the sofa bed with a real bed for the remainder of the week. My favorite was the bathrooms. Our $500+ a night suite had a jet tub from the 70's and no shower. We had to climb into the jet tub, pull out the hose, lean over and wash our hair and bodies. I felt like i was washing my hair in a sink every night. The list could go on.. I know how frustrating it can be to spend lots of money on your dream vacation and expect a 5 star experience, to then show up and get a 3 star room. so I felt it necessary to let you know, this is not a 5 star experience. One positive, the staff is really nice, its only the hotel room that is awful. The actual hotel grounds are beautiful. Go elsewhere....
