A very charming B&B located on top of Gaeta with a stunning view overlooking the old town, the harbour, the bay and the surrounding mountains. A cup of espresso in the morning on the veranda is worth the price itself! Breakfast however is basic and consists mostly of sweet pastries. We missed some healthy alternatives like cheese, ham and wholegrain... More

Great place for the right expectation. Friendly owner, fantastic view and open terrace. A nice, compact city with history of it's own, interesting things to find around it. especially on religious matters.

Very pleasant B&B run by a kind and helpful proprietor located on the hill overlooking the old town, harbor, and bay. Location may be difficult for individuals with mobility issues, but the view from the main terrace is exceptional. Comfortable room and bath; although minor maintenance issues need attention. Good breakfast choices and excellent coffee. Great value at the nightly... More

The staff at Il Vecchio are very accommodating and helpful. The breakfast is very nice and from the breakfast balcony you get a fantastic view of the sea. Gaeta is a town with wonderful scenery and definitely worth seeing with easy train access from Naples and Rome. Thank you to the staff Cristiano and Gianfranco for a very welcoming visit.

We booked a double room for 7 nights in May 2015. Criinstiano was very helpful and came to meet us in our car in the main square, and guided us up to the B&B (better than our satnav). We were lucky enough to be able to use one of the B&B's allocated parking spaces in the small road near the... More

The terrace and the view are just as promised. Typical italian breakfast with good coffee. The host is friendly. The only thing that's nuisance is all the stairs you have to walk to get to the b&b if you don't own a car.

Everything in my previous review stands but HOLY COW the new terrace is AMAZING! The view alone is worth it! You can't find any better! Gaeta is most defiantly a hidden gem, plan a couple days here, you won't be sorry! This view+Christiano's cappuccino=heaven on earth!

This B&B is maybe not the fanciest place i ever slept but the atmosphere is definately the best! We stayed in the room with stunning view on the Gaeta! You can see whole old town from your room! And Cristiano is just perfect host. Not only he waited for our late arrival, he also gave us lot of information about... More
