“"A Great Place to Stay"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2011

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. We found the hotel to be very clean and with one of the best views we have ever seen over the Bay of Naples. Sat on the terrace each night watching the sunset whilst waiting for dinner to be served in the restaurant, where we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. All of the staff at this hotel were very helpful and informative and I note other reviews re transport etc we had no difficulty as we booked the hotel shuttle for our trips to and from train station etc. There was a some noise from the road below however it did not interrupt us in our rooms and had no difficulty hearing or talking on the terrace. Would recommend this hotel to friends and would stay there again.

Torre Barbara is a small and friendly hotel worth a visit. The hotel is located on the winding road between Pompei and Sorrento. Some noice from the road below could be registred but we were not disturbed very much. The hotel is simply but tastefully furnished. Lovely garden with a wonderful view of Vesuvius. Rooms were clean and proper. Beds were very good. Internet by cable working witout any problems. Refrigerator with beer, softdriks and water to a decent price. Breakfast was good to be Italian. Dining was excellent! Chef´s todays special with different local ingredients like seefood, meet and cheese is a must . Do not forget the "Vesuvio eruption chocolate cake" and the home made Limoncello!

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Italy and stayed at The Torre Barbara which was absolutely wonderful. Our room and all the public areas were well furnished and spotlessly clean. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Taking breakfast on their beautiful terrace with uninterrupted views of the bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius was magical and set us up for the day. The free shuttle bus the hotel provided was excellent although the local bus stopped right outside and public transport was just so cheap. I would definately go back and certainly recommend it to friends

Room Tip: Definately get one with a sea view....fantastic

we came up with a real lucky dip here!! we pretty much picked this out a hat as there so many places to stay on the amalfi. Vico Equense is small town on the way south to Sorrento and is lovely and peaceful. the staff here were wonderful and did everything possible to make our stay incredible. beautiful , extremely well sized and private rooms were great. an excellent restaurant with wonderful food and very typical Italian service. would highly recommend Hotel Torre Barbara to all

We loved the staff here until they told us to give them 5 stars on trip advisor. The staff there was very helpful and accommodating. They helped us get transportation. They helped us with the local train station. I wished their shower was as good as their service. Their showers did not drain. It was flooded every time I took a shower. It was nice that they had 2 shower heads in the shower but you would flood the shower faster. They were located in the middle of no where. There were no restaurant nearby or places to go. You need a car or scooter to get around. And their breakfast was the same everyday and not much of a selection. They are located next to the main street so it gets crowded with traffic & smog & noise. Thank goodness for their dual panel sliding door and a/c. At night they have nice view of city lights of Pompeii.

As a teacher, I am limited to when I can go with my husband and two young children on holiday. We decided to go in half term and Alfonso Massa from Naples Villas recommended this superb hotel. By going through Naples Villas, we also saved quite a bit of money compared to going through the hotel direct. It has a pool, stunning views and is well located as it is within easy reach of Sorrento, Pompeii and the other major tourist sights. The family room was spacious, well laid out and furnished to a high standard. It is very child friendly and the staff are kind and helpful. Nothing seemed like too much trouble, which is a blessing with young children! Alfonso was spot on with his advice and we had a great family holiday. He also gave us tips and hints to make the most of our week's stay.

Torre Barbara is a beautiful small hotel with a great view of the Bay of Naples. We enjoyed the outdoor dining in its beautiful garden courtyard. The dinners were supurb. After the first night, my husband insisted on eating their every night, and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets over the Bay. Due to its central location, we were able to visit Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello all in 4 days. While a bit off the beaten path, the hotel shuttle will take you to the train station and it is an easy ride to Positano, Sorrento, or Naples. One day we took the train to Sorrento and a ferry to Capri. One day, we hired a driver to take us to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. With all the money we saved by staying at this bargain, we easily could afford the driver and taxis here and there. You also can reach the hotel by bus from Vico Equense.

Our quad was very comfortable, modern and clean with small beds for the kids downstairs and a queen bed upstairs. While it was the least expensive hotel
