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

It is a hectic drive up the mountain, however it is worth every effort. What a wonderfull hotel with a great staff. The room was spacious and very good maintained. The staff is very helpfull and trying to assist on every bit of your stay there.

While returning from Sicily we decided to stay one night at this hotel as it was close to Salerno. It was pretty easy to find and had lots of free parking. The outside seemed elagant and charming, tucked away in a small typical Italian narrow village road. Upon entering to check in we met a very snotty and rude older woman behind the desk. We got our key and went to our room. The hotel is old and seems to be stuck in time. The restaurant, bar and lobby are not as bad as the rooms. While our room was a suite and it appeared to have been updated it just had a weird feel to it. It was not a real suite and was only a larger room. I get they wanted to retain the historic feel but they really did not do a good job. The hotel was full of old, beat up furniture, dead plants, and the holiday decorations looked like they had been locked away in grannies attic for a century or more. The decor was smashed flat, caked with dust and grime, broken and faded. It was like this through the whole hotel. The furniture in the sitting halls was just as bad. SO old and broken, faded, worn and the cushions and fabric were all falling off the frames. Near our room there was a particular sitting room that appeared to be set up as a shrine to the long gone owners. They had arranged a table with a spot light shinning on the haphazardly arranged photos, religious paraphernalia and other personal items. The curtains were closed and no other lighting was used. I'm not sure, but there was a picture of a baby and it looked liked one of the pictures they used to take when a family member died. The whole room was SO creepy!! I actually had a hard time sleeping wondering if this hotel would be haunted and I do not scare easily with this kind of stuff. Our bed was full of springs and smelled like cat urine. The patio however was lovely and we had a nice view. The heaters worked well and the hotel was quite. The shower was a disaster. It was broken and would not open or close. The massage jets didn't work and the water never got hot. The next morning I went down to get a coffee and it was disgusting so I dumped it out and skipped breakfast. The morning we checked out, again we were met by a very snotty and rude younger lady. The night before when we had retuned from dinner, there were two men working and they were happy and helpful. I guess the garden and groups are the main point of this hotel but coming in the winter we did not get to enjoy this area. Over all, we were not happy with the amount of money we spent based on the condition of the hotel. I know they are quite popular for hosting weddings in the summer so there should be no problem with refreshing this hotel but they don't. It was just gross, old and similar to staying in a very old persons home that had not been able to tend it for YEARS. I can go to my grandmothers for this kind of visit and not have to pay! On a side note, we were traveling with two small dogs and they allowed them with no problems. We will not recommend this hotel or return.

The taxi to the hotel from Salerno train station was captivating. Driving up the edge of mountains on streets that only have room for a half of a car and hairpin turns. When we entered the hotel, the lobby and common areas were beautiful. We were told that we had a semi-private balcony. The room itself was straight out of "Madmen". If everything was the same, the fabrics, decor, lighting, but from the 21st century... I would have rated this hotel 5 stars. You could tell that the furniture, mattress, fabrics were very old. Our semi-private balcony was huge... and because we were the only visitors, it was private. The views from the balcony were incredible. The grounds of the property are unforgettable. You can tell that they are very well maintained. Walking to a church that was more than 1000 years old was everything.... meandering and exploring the environment was incredibly impressive. The hotel restaurant and bar have an atmosphere that is dated. There was a whole wall of doors that opened up to a balcony overlooking the lowlands and we saw fireworks while dining. The meal was better than expected. Again, a little dated, in the sense of reminding me of a classic late 80's menu/palate. The service was brigade style which I enjoy. There was a buffet style breakfast that was forgettable. This hotel just needs someone with a lot of money to bring it back to its original glory. It would be an "it" hotel.
