First of all, let's say that Casamicciola Terme in not the best place to stay in Ischia if you are looking for a picturesque place and if you like to take many pictures; next time I'd choose to go to Forio d'Ischia or Sant'Angelo.
Hotel Gemma is a family run hotel, staff is very nice and kind, especially at the restaurant (everything you ask for, they give you without problem). If you have problems with stairs, maybe this is not the right place for you. The location is right if you don't mind to take a bus or a taxi to go everywhere; the walking distance to Casamicciola is about 1 km.
Our room was clean and peaceful, even if air conditioning was not so good, so temperature was freezing or hot, never the right one. The common terrace overlooking the sea is great to relax, especially at sunset time.
About the restaurant, my expectations about it have been disappointed: I'm italian and I can say that I've eaten better italian food in many other hotels. During one week, several times we had the same dish (this is boring if you are on holiday). The temperature in the dinner room was too hot, no air conditioning.
The swimming pool is not as big as it may seem in the pictures, the space around the pool is very narrow and place to sunbath and relax very poor.
If you pay a promotional rate (including daily entrance to the Parco Termale Castiglione, 10 minutes walking distance) it's ok, but the public rate is not adequate to the services offered by the hotel.
