This hotel was wonderful, we did not pay extra for a view but we sure got one. Our room was on the side with a perfect view of Mt Vesuvius. The hotel had a lot of private parties happening while we were there and you could not hear the people or music in our rooms. The staff was great, very knowledgeable and polite. The hotel has a shuttle down to Sorrento which we took a couple of times. The food was better than any other hotel we have ever stayed at in Italy. For dinner you can have a choice of meat, fish or vegetarian meals, never the same meal twice and very authentic. Our last night while we were at dinner staff surprised us by placing a bottle of Lemoncello in our room. Anytime we are in this region we will always stay at this hotel.
