We visited Salerno for 6 nights in September and decided to stay here for the last 2 nights as the prices were extremely cheap and the proximity to the main road meant it was easy to leave early on the last day for a long drive up to Civitavecchia. I wish we could have stayed longer! This really is an excellent hotel. It is extremely easy to find and they have a largish car park with free parking. It is very modern and the entrance foyer/check in area was lovely and the lady who checked us in was friendly and spoke good english. Our room was great, large, very clean and comfortably furnished with a big bed. The bathroom was a decent size and with a good shower. Good wifi coverage (I think it was free! (Can't remember!) ) and surprisingly, our room had a lovely view. Fair enough, it overlooked the main road (which you can't really get away from) but look past this and you will see beautiful, green hillsides with little villages just waiting to be explored :)
The gym was again, surprisingly good for this level of hotel. It is very small but has enough equipment to keep you going for a few days and it was all brand new techogym.
We didn't eat in the hotel at all so can't comment. There was a small supermarket just over the road where you can get basics.
This hotel is THE hotel to stay in if you want ease of access to both the Amalfi coast and the other side of the peninsula (Sorrento etc....). I don't know what the buses are like around this area but it was very convenient with a car. It is also well placed for visiting places like Pompeii, Herculaneum and Vesuvius (all of which are absolute must see's!).
A indicator of a good hotel is if the weather is awful and you still enjoy staying there. It absolutely poured down with rain the 2 days we stayed here and it was a joy to come back to such a warm and comfortable hotel after a day sightseeing in the rain.
I very much hope to return.
