Hotel Scapolatiello

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms are a little outdated, but we liked everything else about the hotel. The pool, especially was a welcome and refreshing respite in hot July weather. The town of Cava is delightful, and the hamlet of Corpo di Cava, even more so. We had a very relaxing massage at the Spa. There are a couple of casual restaurants just above the hotel, where we had good Southern Italian meals, and the hotel restaurant was very good with lovely views over the hills and the valley. Very romantic at night. I also highly recommend having dinner in Cafe Rispoli in the main square. The hotel is very good value for money for the amenities it offers, and is very handy to get on the A3 and drive to Pompeii, Paestum and the Amalfi Coast.

These were the last three nights of our five week holiday in southern Italy and Sicily before we drove back to Rome to fly home. It was a wonderful way to end the trip. The hotel itself is an elegant older (older by Canadian standards, not old by European standards) hotel on a beautiful property with wonderful views. The hotel has a pool which we took full advantage of while there. Our room was very nice, quite spacious and very well cleaned by staff each day. All the hotel staff were great. The town/village is small but there are four or five restaurants to choose from in addition to the hotel dining room (all within walking distance of the hotel) and we found the local dining to be reasonably priced. The breakfast at this hotel was really good. They even have an orange squeezer at the breakfast buffet with a basket of oranges beside it. I just about overdosed on fresh orange juice. You can also do a little hiking very near the hotel and visit the remains of an old Roman aquaduct. I thought this was very worth seeing. The Abby/church a short walk from the hotel is also worth seeing. It is nice enough from the outside but you need to go inside. Beautiful!!! and no charge. Overall this was a very good pick for us and we would recommend it to anyone stopping in the area. You really should have a car if you are staying here. There is bus transportation but we were told it was infrequent. If you want to sight see here the bus is of limited value to you.

Spent 4 nights here with my teenage children and had the most relaxing time. The hotel is situated in a stunning locating and you cannot help but unwind. The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially the barman who should be given special credit. We only ate here for breakfast (more down to the fact that I have teenagers that wanted to eat pizza!) so could not comment on the food. I would say it was the only downside for me that the menu was not a bit wider to cater for more tastes and there wasn't really a snack menu through the day. That said, there was a great restaurant only 10 minutes walk away or a quick drive which the hotel were happy to organise. Would love to come back. Try and get a room with a balcony. Costs a bit more but definitely worth it.

We were a group of 6 traveling through Italy by car. The location is situated in an remote area of this small town, if you are not a good driver you may not make it through the very narrow streets up to the hotel parking , you can park in a close by parking; from there you can call the receptionist and they will send somebody to pick you up or you take the luggage and walk for about 400-500 meters to the hotel. The hotel may have received an 4 stars category, but the rooms we have stayed in, I would not consider them as 4 stars rooms, you can feel that it was an more trafficked room, but for the price we got the room I rate the conditions vs price as being excellent. The hotel is made us from several buildings, with open terraces, small gardens all around, a covered swimming pool (that looked like it was not used for a while, but it was filled up with water) you have the feel of a very big mansion, you may bump into Sofia Loren just around the corner, :). Breakfast was Italian style, with a reduced variety of ham & cheese, enough to get the engine started in the morning; the view from the restaurant it is absolutely marvelous. I recommended this location and if we will back in the area for sure we will book an room here.

My wife and I booked a short break at the hotel and we couldn't have had a better time. The journey to the hotel was amazing zigzagging through the mountains, then edging through the tiniest of streets to pull up outside this quirky and charming hotel. The best thing about this hotel without a doubt is it's wonderful staff. Front of house couldn't be more helpful, waiting staff attentive and bar staff fun! All staff spoke excellent English which was super helpful as our Italian is sketchy at best! The views from the terrace and room were breathtaking! Mountains, distant villages and clear blue skies. Breakfast was amazing, typical continental fare with massive choice. The lunch and dinner menu was limited but ok. I would suggest that if you stay here that you hire a car. We didn't as we wanted an adventure. Getting from Naples to Salerno was super easy on the train, but then we got stung 35 Euros for a short taxi journey to hotel. Next day we walked down mountain to Cava which is the local town and got train to Salerno before boat trip to amalfi 2 euros!!! Return!! Getting back was more difficult! Train back to cava was fine, only to find that there are absolutely no taxis there, none! We googled to see if a bus ran to hotel, it does but only once an hour. We waited at wrong stop for hour only to see bus sail pass us. So we walked back up the mountain to the hotel.. Anyway we couldn't fault hotel, sure it's a bit quirky and dated, but that's it's charm. Would definitely return!!

Great hotel with perfect location. This is a beautiful authentic hotel that overlooks a stunning view. Breakfast is large and tasty and the hotel's restaurant is also excellent. Rooms are large and spacious, decorated in a classical style. The hotel staff was very nice and helped us with everything we needed. Highly recommended !

We decided to stay here on the way out of the Amalfi Coast and were not disappointed. As you can see by the photos, accessing the parking area next to the hotel can be a tight fit if one has a large vehicle. There is another parking area below the hotel as well. The hotel is situated in what looks like a redundant village, but that's part of the charm. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Dinner was outstanding! We were totally surprised with the quality of food in this seemingly out-of-the way locale. It was a great stay.

A nice little hotel in the mountains provided some amazing views. There is plenty of beautiful outdoor space to spend some time in. The rooms aren't large, but are comfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was very nice.

Beautiful old hotel in the mountains with modern rooms and breathtaking views. Just full of old world charm and the restaurant is amazing. Larger vehicles can't get through the streets since they are very narrow so may require a little walking.

Stayed there for 2 nights as a base point to visit the Amalfi Coast and Pompei. Excellent location with never forget views and good food. Nice staff, pretty rooms. The furniture and upholstery in the rooms are a bit outdated, but nothing too bad. I will come back with pleasure
