We came here for a week with Travelsphere back in May/June time, doing the archaeological tour of the area – what a brilliant week we had. Weather was almost perfect, not too hot, not too sunny and with very little rain. The Aequa Hotel was in an ideal location for us, being central for trips to Naples or Amalfi. The local train station was only 300m away, is very cheap and connects to most places easily with Pompeii only being 15 mins away. The Hotel staff were extremely helpful and polite, in fact, sometimes they just couldn’t do enough for you.
Breakfast was the normal continental style with plenty of choices including scrambled eggs and cooked ham (instead of bacon). The evening meal was based on typical Italian fare which was very good overall, if you like Italian food which we do. If there was anything you didn’t like on the menu then other choices were available. The celebratory Vesuvius Cake on the last night was quite spectacular – how the waiter never got burnt I’ll never know. The local wine was actually quite nice, especially the red and turned out to be quite cheap in the end.
The room we had was probably the best in the Hotel – on the top floor over looking Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples, a very large terrace instead of a balcony, with sun loungers and tables, air conditioning in a large bedroom with a large bathroom fitted out with bath and shower with a view of Vesuvius (for me anyway, being tall), bidet etc. Public areas included a very nice swimming pool, covered terrace, gardens etc.
Across the road was Titos – a pizzeria/ristarante which was very good and reasonably priced. Although some of the local Italians seemed a bit unsociable or unwelcoming, the Hotel staff and Tito’s certainly weren’t – thanks for a great week and we would certainly come back here if we visit the area again.
