This hotel offers outstanding value and a great service. It consists of 5 modern apartments with great facilities. My family (2 adults and two girls aged 9 and 12) were allocated the 1st floor Africa apartment which has a generous double room with stunning views overlooking the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius, and a twin room also with more indirect sea view. It might have a town centre location, but every night was peaceful and we and the girls had great restful sleep. Africa also has a kitchen/dining room, shower room and laundry and an enormous balcony running around two sides of the apartment, again with stunning views. It was spotlessly clean - and the rooms were serviced every day, and a continental breakfast was included in the price. The family that run it could not have been more helpful or charming. Our host Alfonso always had a ready smile, his wife Anna is a very talented chef ensuring that both breakfast goods and the meals in the onsite Mediterranean/sushi restaurant Signum (indoor, courtyard and stunning roof terrace seating options) were delicious, and Stefania the bookings manager spoke great English and ensured good communication both before and during our stay. All the staff were friendly and approachable. The hotel is just below the main square in the small town of Vico Equense, a typical Bay of Naples town set on cliffs above the sea - and it is only about 50m from the bus stop used by the main Curreri line coach service that runs between Naples airport and Sorrento - making transfers (40min) quick and convenient. The hotel is also about 5 mins walk from the cirucumvesuviana line station - making trips to Naples, Herculaneum, Pompeii and Sorrento easy. And Sorrento is only 10 mins by train away, which allowed us an easy transfer to the buses to the Amalfi coast too. The hotel does not have its own parking, but can arrange for some if required - but I have to say we felt we could have a great holiday based on public transport alone, and given the lack of parking at the major tourist sights would recommend this approach. The location of the Cubo apartments made all of this very easy, and Vico Equense is a delightful town well served with restaurants and food shops which means you can be very comfortable. You also probably get to see a more authentic town than the more touristy Sorrento. The only downside is that the ticket office of Vico station does not sell any of the tourist 3 day travel cards for the transport (only day tickets), and the tourist information office of the town never seemed to be open. So perhaps a quick trip to Sorrento early on in your stay if you are planning like us to use the transport a lot to get this sorted out first is all that would be required.
