A convenient hotel for the Naples area, close to various eateries, the ruins of Herculaneum, and the railway station. The room was small but comfortable, with air conditioning, the balcony had a limited view, there was a mini-bar, safe, TV (but did not have an English speaking channel). The room was cleaned daily, the bathroom was modern also cleaned daily...

The rooms are small but clean. The location is very convenient to both the train station and the ruins at Herculaneum. The staff is very nice and helpful. They will store your baggage for a few hours and the breakfast is extra special. Best of all the cost is very reasonable.

Small room , odd configuration of single beds, nice balcony , no real view. Air con, shower fine, nothing fancy, staff superb, breakfast very good. Straight down from Ercolano Scavi Train station, suit one night while looking at ruins, lots of cheap places to eat nearby. Will look after luggage until check in time.

Excellent stay with a couple of minor things. Service was exceptional from the moment we arrived. I cannot stress enough how exceptional service was. Even better was that staff spoke Italian, English and several spoke other languages. Breakfast was delicious in the morning and the fresh pastries were wonderful. Rooms were basic but very clean and comfortable. A couple of...

This interesting property is right opposite the entrance to Herculaneum. It's a bit old-fashioned, but the staff are extremely helpful, especially with getting their driver to give lifts to the station or to Vesuvius, etc. The buffet breakfast is excellent, but there is no restaurant for main meals - however, there are plenty of eating places locally. They do not...

We spent 3 lovely days in the hotel. It has a perfect location near the ruins in the center of Ercolano. The staff is really wonderful, ready to help and to make your stay enjoyable. The breakfast is perfect like in a 5* hotel. Highly recommended place.

Just returned today after staying at this wonderful hotel. From the outside it doesn't look particularly special, sat on the corner of a very busy road junction. However, upon entering the front door, you are greeted with a smile and are treated as long lost family, they are so please to see you. The hotel is a family run place...
