Good: Views facing sea are fantastic, staff very friendly and helpful, cleaning very good.
Not so good: No bar (guess in remembrance of the monks), the hotel is a bit austere lacks a few warming rugs and carpet. Rooms could do with a make over, bathroom grouting, bulbs replacing etc. Breakfast average. No kettle in room. Sirens and fireworks through the night....
Location ok, walk is not too bad into city and back. Naples is scruffy, dirty, graffiti ridden, scooter filled, cobbly wobbly, full of life character and hidden cultural treasures. Well worth visiting.
Vesuvius and Pompeii excellent. Pizza restaurant turn right out of hotel down road was great value and friendly even though they gave us something entirely different from what we ordered! Their choice was better!
Did not think Procida island was that great really.
