We found what we thought was a bargain...on the beach, attached restaurant and near places we wanted to see.
Just be aware, that although the premises are clean, the place is as old as Naples itself, with small rooms that are badly in need of moderinization.
A bar/restaurant attached to the beachfront side of the hotel is very busy and the valet service is done in front of your hotel entrance which can be quite an inconvience, if you need to drop off elderly guests, luggage or items for the room...you see the parking lot for the hotel is across the street from the hotel.
The foot traffic from the in the coming crowds for the restaurant , for people not staying at the hotel, are continuous from open to close...and they could care less about noise, especially when leaving the bar/restaurant after a few cocktails.
The restaurant has very good food and the staff warm and friendly.
The guy working the front desk must really hate his job...cold, one word answers and not very friendly at all.
Would we return to the VBH?
I would try somewhere else for a little more money.
All in all, you get what you pay for.
