Grand Hotel Vesuvio
Ranked #7 of 185 Hotels in Naples
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Great location and view from the room ( you must pay extra for the sea view, definatly worth it !!!).
Although I must say it is too expensive, wifi is not for free??? I would overall recomend staying in the area, but in a cheaper hotel.

Room Tip: Sea view!!!

We spent four nights here, in a wonderful room directly facing the castle. The service was friendly, faultless and totally professional, the welcome excellent, the breakfasts very generous and tasty, the peace and quiet (in February) extremely welcome, the beds the last word in comfort. You get what you pay for in this world and we obtained everything we had hoped for.

Just returned from vacation and couldn't wait to rate this hotel. The sea-view room is a must! The entire staff of the hotel exceeded all expectations, from the bellman to housekeeping. By the end of our 3 day stay, they knew our names and became like family. The rooftop dinner was worth every penny. The breakfast buffet each morning was outstanding. The servers even gave us a departing gift of pastries on our last day. When we return to Naples, there is no doubt we will return to Vesuvio!

Room Tip: We loved our sea view room!

Stayed 3 nights at the Vesuvio in a sea-view room. Great experience, the room was large and the view on the gulf breathtaking. The street in front of the hotel is closed to traffic but if you leave the window open it can get a bit noisy during the day. Fantastic breakfast buffet. Highly recommended.

I was very excited about staying in this hotel because it was recommend by others and pretty high on trip advisor list but after staying there I do not understand why this is ranked so high or considered a 5 star hotel. There is no way it is a 5 star, maybe in the 70's or earlier it was the nicest hotel back then but they have not updated the place since then, literally. First of all there are no signs that tell you you need to drive on the pedestrian road to pull up to the front of the hotel, you have to go past concrete pillars. When we arrived the bell man was VERY nice and helpful. I was thinking it was so great. Then once we went inside the front desk clerk was very unfriendly. I asked what the tower was right in front of the hotel and his literal words were "oh it is an old rock" and that was it nothing else. Then I asked if any restaurants were open around the hotel, he said no. My husband and I went and walked across the street to the dock and many restaurants were open. We wanted to go to the rooftop restaurant to just look at the place and see view. We were not even allowed to go to the floor to see. Weird. I even asked down stairs and they said it was not allowed. Yes the rooms have a good view but everything in the hotel is old and everyone at the front besides the one bellman and I will say the waitress at the breakfast was nice. Our breakfast was included in the room but if I would of paid for it extra I would have been very very disappointed. They did offer a high chair for our baby but it was very old and falling apart and no way to keep him from sliding out. The wifi was crazy expensive too, 30 euros for day or 10 euros for 8 hours. They also wanted a tip for everything. The air conditioner also was horrible. We had it as low as it would go which was only 20 Celsius and it was burning up the whole time. I could not imagine it in the summer. This hotel could be great but needs a HUGE update! They are just going off their rep as a grand hotel and if they don't update soon people are going to realize it's nothing fancy.

Stayed one night in this very traditional Continental hotel. Conventional high-quality; gilded and mirrored common areas; all-marble-and-chrome bathrooms; fabric-covered walls; heavy dark furniture; understated old-school luxury. Very nice if you like that kind of thing. A traveller from the 1930s would have recognised most of it (the style; not the age; everything is well-maintained and/or new) Good views across the bay; it's right on the waterfront. A good dinner in the rooftop (enclosed) restaurant. Service polite, attentive, courteous. Hot food at breakfast was rather tepid.
Solid. Not cheap at 200 Euro for B&B though.

Room Tip: Harbour view.

Be careful to read the fine print here if you think you will be getting a pool / spa included in the price. The pool will cost you $15 euro, and the spa / sauna will cost a separate $15 euro. If you want them both, it will cost you $25 euro. We bit the bullet and did both, it was fairly nice, however the spa pool temperature was not that hot and they were not able to increase it.

Also note that the restaurant on the top level is closed on Mondays (this happened to be the day we wanted to go up), and also likely to be very expensive.

Wifi will also cost you $3 euro for 30 minutes so don't expect this to be free either (unlike most hostels).

The area is also in a strip of restaurants, but nothing else is there and quite a stretch from the "real naples". You need to get a $10-$12 euro taxi to get to the hotel from the main station as there is no public transport in walking distance.
