We stayed here three years ago and loved it so decided to stay again with our 2 teenage children. It is still a great hotel but needs some updating. We had a lovely room with a terrace but the air conditioner was very noisy and completely inadequate for the size of room. The jacuzzi shower was small and did not... More

We have just stayed for 10 days at this very charming hotel, and with an upgrade to a junior suite, we had spectacular views of the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvio and every evening enjoying the busy harbour life from our 6th floor room. The hotel is quaint and charming, but it seems that all focus is on the views,... More

Fantastic location above a buzzing city. Bit of a trek into town, but makes up for it with amazing views. Unfortunately, repetitive cover music - the same CD - played over and over at breakfast and dinner. Lisa Stansfield never sounded like that. Definitely recommend for anyone staying in Naples

We did not like the city, the hotel is nice but dated. The spa works only with prearranged dates. They even have sauna or any other wellness available only upon request - meaning that you pay a wellness package that includes 15 minutes of sauna.

In honesty, our holiday to Naples was not one of our favourites. We found the city to be dirty, grimy, smelly, and extremely poor in places. This hotel made our stay! The view from the rooms, the restaurant/ bar, and the rooftop pool area, of Vesuvius and the bay of Naples, is sensational! The hotel being an old monastery was... More

S Francesco al Monte is a great place to stay. We had five nights there recently and it was a wonderful place to return to after the hot and lively streets of Naplilo. The view over the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius is spectacular and the location above the Spanish Quarter is central to all of Naples charms. And then... More

Pros: That View(!!!), the history of the hotel itself, the pool deck, Francesco (waiter in the Terrazzo Restaurant), the creepy/cool statues and nativity, the lunch bistro just off the pool area under the grape vines, the cool elevator ride to the pool and the pool area itself (plenty of seating). Cons: street noise (traffic is _right there_ as you exit... More

Dear MelMcMillan we are happy you appreciated the historical side of our ancient monastery and the services we provide. But with reference to the negative points please let us punctualize that all hotels in the major cities of Italy have the access from the street and we are in a main road ("corso" in italian is bigger that "via" alias...

Stayed at this wonderful hotel for 5nights. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The views from either the restaurant or the pool area were fantastic overlooking the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. All the staff were very helpful wether it was calling taxis for us or making sure we had clean pool towels when relaxing by their fabulous pool... More
