Cara Signora Antonietta, cari amici,
My name is Dan (Daniele) and I stayed at your hotel with my lovely wife Alina between 19-26 April 2013 when I celebrated a very special occasion in my life, my 50th birthday. You even surprised us with a bottle of Champagne and cake on my birthday making me feel like celebrating amongst friends. Thank you!
Signora Antoinetta even upgraded us to a room (number 64 I think) with an absolutely awe inspiring view over the bay, the Villa Tritone and the city of Sorrento. But then again it's very difficult not to have magnificent views from anywhere in that hotel. It doesn't matter where you chose to have your espresso or your meal or your cocktail, the views...oh, the views!
The location of the hotel is brilliant, only a short and very leisurely walk to town, but because of that location it has the views that it has. If it would be right in Sorrento, it wouldn't be the same thing.
It is a well-kept hotel; we loved the terrace furniture, heavy cast iron with red pillows as well as the interior decorations throughout. Check-in and check-out were a breeze & a porter helped us with our luggage.
The room was pretty and very clean, had its own safe (no extra charge, important to us) mini fridge/bar and of course AC. Bed was very comfortable, bath was clean & spacious and shower pressure was great. For us, that is ALL we want in a hotel room. It had a flat screen TV but we never switched it on, not on vacation.
We were on a half-board plan (breakfast & dinner included) and we very pleased with the variety and quality of the food; espresso, croissants, prosciutto, provolone, orange juice (and more) for breakfast, pizza, pasta, fish, meat, desserts for dinner; perfect. It was also very relaxing knowing that we only had to choose the “vino” for our evening meal. Falanghina is a local wine we especially enjoyed.
On top of being a great hotel it also has great staff. Everyone was polite, friendly, kind and very accommodating. I don't want to single out anyone, because I feel I would do an injustice to the others. They were ALL fantastico and we thank them ALL!
I apologise for not writing in this book sooner, but with my daughter's wedding in Sicily this September, the travelling we've done and the professional commitments, we had a very busy year so far.
However, we never forgot you, your warm hospitality and the great service you provided, making our stay in Hotel Minerva a wonderful vacation.
We hope to see you again soon!
Dan & Alina
