“Bearable for a short stay”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Yes, another Newmarket Holidays visitor. Room small, clean, good view of Vesuvius. Good beds. Like a million other hotels, the air conditioning was useless and the windows hinged in such a way as to make it challenge to keep them open. Staff pleasant enough, food rather poor. Nice outdoor seating area spoiled by the constant stream of scooters along a surprisingly busy road, considering that you're stuck behind the steel fencing and the brooding, abandoned spa building -- I imagine Chernobyl is something like this. OK for a couple of days, but there must be better elsewhere.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a Newmarket coach tour. You must remember that the facilities etc were tailored to secure Newmarket's business.
This hotel is next to a derelict salt bath, has security gates and fencing and is in a remote location high above the town. It all adds up to a depressing outlook.
Staff - not very pleasant and only one managed a grin in 3 days - female was the worst. They need training in customer care.
Bedroom - spacious with a balcony looking towards the Bay and Vesuvius ( lovely) . Comfortable beds.
Bathroom - Although the decor was very dated it was clean with an excellent shower and large bath towels.
Food - breakfast was ok but the evening meals left a lot to be desired - on our last night we were served a chicken leg or breast and some 24 chips. The Germans had a more substantial meal. A case of you get what you pay for.
The staff had the audacity you leave a basket for "Staff Tips" on the breakfast buffet. I did not have a pen and paper handy or my tip would be "SMILE and be PLEASANT".
Nothing would entice me back here.
Our Tour manager and Driver were excellent.

Room Tip: I recommend a top floor room with views of Vesuvius - in spite of overlooking the derelict salt bath...

Stayed at this hotel on a Newmarket hoiiday. The location of the hotel is disapointing, it is amidst empty run down buildings and is a long way from the town. It is surrounded by a steel pallisade fence which does not add to its general ambience. There are no shops or restaurants anywhere within walking distance. The hotel itself is of a fair standard. Rooms are small and very basic but clean. The food is of a good standard and staff are friendly and efficient.
The hotel appears to cater for the coach trip market and as a budget hotel this is fine but it is a long way from its star rating. Not recommended if you want picturesque views or a hotel where you can have a walk out in the evening.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a balcony facing the bay of Naples.

The hotel is situated in Napoli, great conditions, very clean, poor breakfast, but i was travelling with a group which usually for keeping low prices the breakfast is very poor(a croissant and a coffee). The only strange part is that when we arrived in Napoli at 23.00 some people made fire in the street for making a barbecue, otherwise it was ok. The hotel was protected from the parking by a big steelfence with multiple video cameras. Otherwise the hotel made an execelent impression.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view
