A very nice hotel converted from a former 16th-century monastery with wonderful views from the bedroom windows across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius. On the forth floor is the terrace where you can have continental breakfast under sun shades also affording the same spectacular view across the Bay of Naples. This is a quiet hotel and you cannot hear the traffic noise from the road below. The roof garden is a surprise, and is really beautiful and well tended and not to be missed, also this is where a small swimming pool is.
On the minus side the bedrooms do not have anywhere to unpack your suitcase, just two bedside cabinets with two draws each on each side of the bed. The wardrobe has about six hangers to hang your clothes on and no shelves, so be prepared not to unpack your suitcase.The bathroom floor and bath/shower is very slippery when wet.
We requested a rubber bath mat for the bath but were given a couple of cotton bath mats which the maid took away after a couple of changes The hotel do supply paper slippers to wear presumably to stop slipping.
