This newly renovated hotel is very well situated for visits to Naples, Vesuvius, Herculaneum and Pompeii or as a stopping point en route further south. It’s easily accessible by train on the Circumvesuviana from Naples, Pompeii and Sorrento and is near the motorway. You can get a public bus up to Vesuvius from Ercolano Scavi or there are commercial companies offering the same at five times the price. The Herculaneum ruins are only a short walk from the station.
The hotel is set within secure pleasant grounds on the slopes of Vesuvius with a fabulous view towards the mountain. In the Summer there is an open air pool and outdoor bar.
Although it’s only a 20 min walk to Ercolano Scavi Station, it is not advisable - the area is rough, semi paved and quasi- industrial. It’s not a pleasant experience. But the hotel run a free very efficient mini bus service three times in the morning and late afternoon.
The public areas and rooms are very new and stylishly decorated in a minimalist style. The rooms were pleasant, stylish and well equipped.
Despite the fact we came in the depths of the Low Season - the hotel was almost empty - the Customer Service was excellent. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful.
Off season prices were very reasonable here. Drinks in the Bar were good value and the restaurant was very good quality.
