We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the S. Francesco al Monte hotel. The room was beautiful, the breakfast was plentiful, the staff was friendly and competent, the location ideal for walking to all major destinations, and the views were nothing short of stunning. We particularly liked the big, comfy bed in our room, the pancake machine at the breakfast buffet...

Good hotel room with comfy bed, stunning views of Naples and Mount Vesuvius from room and roof terrace. Staff were friendly and experienced good service throughout our stay. However restaurant was extremely overpriced for what the food was. You can easily go out for dinner locally in the Spanish quarter for a more authentic Italian food experience that is lots...

Dear Ellie, Thanks for your review! I am glad that you enjoyed the comfort of our beds and the friendliness of our staff! Typical places that you mentioned in the Spanish quarter are called "trattoria" prices are lower than a restaurant (and rightly so), but in my view the two types of restoration can not be compared Hoping to welcome...

The views from this hotel are incredible! Not just from the bar/terrace but from our rooms too. The hotel was in a good location near the funicular railway but also a 15 minute walk into the historic centre. The hotel is an ex convent and it's easy to spend a while exploring all its nooks and crannies. Staff all very...

This hotel was a monastery and is up high just below Casteel St Elmo. The rooms are big, the bathroom was nice. The food in the restaurant was surprisingly excellent as was the service. Only complaints are the front desk speaks NO English, which isn't too bad in and of itself, but they are condescending and almost rude. Also, no...

Dear client, Thanks for your review, we are glad that you have enjoyed our rooms and our restaurant! Unfortunately, the historicity of the place doesn’t allow to put kettles in the rooms but room services facilities are available. We are surprised about the comment on the front-desk staff, our customers are mainly foreign: during the staff recruitment is essential at...

Just spent 5 nights in February. Fantastic hotel with elegant, old world charm. Situated in an old monastery, it is full of beautiful paintings, art and artifacts. Lovely room, bed was a dream and lots of modern conveniences. Only one restaurant open this time of year but they had a broad offering and a very good chef. Amazing views. Only...

Dear client, Thank you for your review and for having highlighted the features of our hotel!

This hotel used to be a monastary. My room is actually 2 rooms of the monks joined together. It has all the necessary equipment such a tv, a noisy airco, deposit box, mini fridge. The bathroom has a modern shower and bidet. It also has space for 2 couches and a small table. I have a wonderful view of the...

My fiancé and I stayed here 21-25th November and had a wonderful time.

This hotel is situated on top of a hill overlooking the whole of Naples. Nicely designed interiors and very good rooms. Steps down to the bay right outside the hotel an interesting walk through the lanes with lots of small bars and restaurants.

I cannot think of any better place where to stay for a fantastic stay in Naples. The views, the rooms, the roof garden and the swimming pool are simply amazing. We are not talking about the standardized "beauty" and comfort of the usual multinational luxury hotels. Here it is all a question of unique and singular beauty. The exceptional quality...
