The public areas of this hotel are hard to fault. A lovely terrace with a small pool, a good choice of comfortable seating (think white sofas and thick mattresses), and a small private beach with plenty of sunbeds.
It is also well located, just a few steps from the old town and the castle from which it gets its name, and a little further from the newer shopping district leading to the port.
The hotel’s own restaurant serves a good buffet breakfast and the one evening meal we had was very good, with a gorgeous anti-pasti buffet.
It is with the rooms that’s the hotel struggles to maintain standards. Ours was very very tiny, and the bathroom even smaller. The shower had a cheap plastic screen and it was a struggle to open the bathroom door without having to dance around it to get out. The tiles in the bathroom were also due for an upgrade.
I think I would have rated this hotel higher if it had not purported to be something it is not. In world class terms, it most certainly is not a 5-star hotel, but I think I read somewhere that Italian hotels operate a sort of check –list system, and if you provide a given list of facilities your five-star rating is assured.
We loved Ischia, and neighbouring Procida, and will most definitely be back and would quite possibly stay here again, but choose a bigger room next time.
