“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We stayed here recently whilst visiting the Amalfi coast. The hotel was clean and the staff were all friendly. The lady who checked us in, and subsequently checked us out a few days later, was very polite and knowledgeable and more then happy to help with any requests. The bar and restaurant are lovely. This hotel is just off the main road about 10km from Salerno, but there are regular buses and trains if you don't have your own transport. The rooms have recently been refurbished and have lovely bathrooms. Would definitely stay here again

Stayed here with my wife at the end of August. First off--the location is both good and bad, depending upon your needs. It is just off the A3 and next to a few modern commercial buildings so it lacks charm. However, its highway proximity enables you to quickly reach the Amalfi coast, Pompei and Naples without the hassle of driving through a town. Parking was free and plentiful and you can walk to a large supermarket down the road. A cafe, bank and pizzeria are right across the street.

The lobby is clean and modern and the staff very pleasant, even though English is not their forte. The restaurant offers a decent breakfast breakfast and is a nice, airy room with views of the mountains.

The rooms are not very big at all and the bathroom is basic with horribly weak shower pressure. In addition, the Air conditioning unit seems to have two degrees: freezing or off.

Still, the hotel was a good value and is a convenient base to explore the area. Incidentally, the town of Cava de'Tirreni has a very nice and active old center that is a 3-minute drive from the hotel. You will find nice shopping and eating options there without the super tourism of Positano and other crowded Amalfi coast towns.

If the hotel improves its shower pressure and air conditioning systems, it would merit an even higher score but for the reasonable rate of 80 Euros, I cannot complain.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor gives you a mountain view on one side.

I loved this hotel as it away from all the hustle and bustle of tourists. There was a really lovely receptionist Clementina. She gave us timetables as we chose not to drive and lots of info on local areas. She also asked about our trips etc. We felt very welcome by her. The other staff were very nice too. I felt I could not get enough travel info for the Cilento area prior to travel as so much of the info on the inetrnet is on amalfi. Luckily Clemintina managed to get us bus and train schedules that let us plan ahead.

There are regular trains to Salerno. The station in cava is about 15 mins walk to the hotel or a there is a bus nearby which takes you to either Cava or salerno station. We did not feel we needed a car. I know people keep saying you need a car to stay here, if you dont mind walking, its an excellent base . The bus to Salerno costs 1.20 Euros these are valid for 90 minutes.

Its a great place to stay as you can travel to the Cilento National Park area where the beaches are nice and very clean. I prefered this area to the Amalfi area as it is less touristy and has stunning beaches. I say this coming from a stunning beach area in Asia.

You really got a feel for local life here. Unfortunately I did not get much time to explore Cava.
Though I wish I had.

There are local supermarkets and loads of eating places including a lovely pizza place en route to the station. It was cheaper to eat here as it seemed to cater to the locals the quality was better too. On saturday evening families were strolling and eating out it was a realy pleasant atmosphere.

The room was great. I fell asleep each night the minute my head touched the pillow and did not wake again till morning. It was so quiet. Of all my travels and satying in Holiday Inns this was a true gem.

The hotel is nice, the rooms are comfortable, the service is quite good. The only real drawback is that the local area is not interesting at best, and a bit dodgy at worst.

As long as you have your own car and want to tour Amalfi and/or Pompeii, it is a good base camp, just off the motorway.

As frequnt chain guests, we got free WiFi, which was fast and easy to use.

Once the kitchen closes (at 10 pm I think), your options for local dining are quite limted.

Stayed at this hotel when traveling the Amalfi Coast. Not sure why I picked it instead of one in Salerno but glad we did. Salerno is in most parts a sleazy dump and one feels quite uncomfortable there. Cava De tirreni is a lovely small town some 10 minutes drive on the autostrade from the port of Salerno from which both the Sita bus and ferries travel to amalfi and the other villages going as far as Sorrento. The hotel is only 100 m from the freeway exit (no traffic noise whatsoever) - the rooms are small but clean and well appointed. The staff were exceptional going out of their way many times to find out information for us and to make sure our stay was comfortable - nothing was too much trouble. Exceptional value and would highly recommend if you are driving in the Salerno area. Only negative - no coffee/tea facilities in the room.

Cava De'Terreni was a quaint little town located just a few minutes inland from the Amalfi Coast. It was about 15 minutes from Salerno and maybe 35 minutes from Amalfi. The Holiday Inn was about 1 year old back in April 2011. It is close to the Autostrada exit and about a 10 minute walk from the center of town. We were driving to the Amalfi coast at night and recognized the sign for a hotel – our friends were staying in Ravello, but we decided to stay here for the night and drive the coast in the morning.

WOW, I am so glad we did…the drive during the daylight was magnificent. It was so beautiful driving along the cost – a bit scary at times, but scenes I will never forget.

Back to the hotel – over super nice and very friendly and accommodating staff!

Room: The room was nice, and large. The bed was in one part of the room and a smaller part with a changing area and the bathroom. The bathroom/shower was large and spacious – which is sometimes hard to find in Italy. 100% enjoyed the room. One down side - this is not the location if you are looking for a view - just for the EASY location!

Food: We were just there for breakfast. The staff was accommodating to sever what they could – I ordered an omelet and they made it to order. Lots of pastries also offered.

We went into town to a great restaurant, recommended by the hotel staff. It was delicious. Only 1 waiter in the entire restaurant spoke English, but we made it through dinner without a problem! They were so nice and wanted to be sure we had a great time! The restaurant was definitely a local establishment – not many tourists…but we find those are the best ones!

We had a wonderful time and I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again – and I know cliché that we stayed at a Holiday Inn in Italy!

Room Tip: Super easy location to get in and out!

Cava De'Terreni was a nice little town located just a few minutes inland from the Amalfi Coast. It was about 15 minutes from Salerno and maybe 25 minutes from Amalfi. The Holiday Inn was pretty new, close to the Autostrada exit and about a 10 minute walk from the center of town.

The room was nice, breakfast was decent. My only complaint was the construction going on in the street in front of the hotel which caused a lot of traffic and a mess for pedestrians.

We took a 10 minute train ride to Salerno (there is also a bus line that runs there as well; the stop is 1 block from the hotel) and then the "Blue" Coastal Tourist bus to Amalfi that runs along the coast road (much, much better & safer than driving).

From Cava, we also drove to Paestum to see the Greek Temples (3000 years old). We spent another day visiting Vietre sul Mare, the next town over. We decided not to visit Sorrento which is also fairly close but we decided against it.

Because of all the traffic on the Coastal road it took almost 1 1/2 hours to get to Amalfi from Salerno which is 12 miles away (Of course the bus stopped for passengers, but there were a lot of traffic lights and places where traffic had to yield so oncoming traffic could get by as well).

Room Tip: Not a scenic view from the hotel; we chose it for it's proximity to the Amalfi Coast
