Recent guest reviews
As part of a 1000km cycle tour of Italy, we simply couldn't find the hotel that we had booked in Pozzuoli? It was late when we arrived, and yet they were very accommodating. A great night's sleep! Great sea view.
One of the worst experiences I've ever had..I was told two months before arrival I would have a room with a sea view..when I showed up I was greeted by a woman who was more worried about her phone then the customers..I get a room it's the wrong room they tell me I will have to move the next day..I have two small children who had to sleep on beds that folded out of the wall..we ended up moving rooms...my daughter needs special diary due to her intolerance and was told there was a mini fridge that was a lie..the hair dryers didn't work..internet went out..shower flooded..our sink leaked an smelled like raw sewage..they wanted our room key so they could clean because they didn't have any spares..we were across the street from a car wash..the "private parking" was across a highway under a building that had flickering lights an abandoned office equipment not secure at all..had to park on highway and hope car didn't get hit..breakfast was subpar..beds were a thin mattress sitting on wood and my kids "bed" was literally a couch that lifted up into a bunk bed and a pin to keep it from falling down..they ended up sleeping with us..we will never stay here again and highly suggest people look else where for hotel..don't know how they get business..worst experience ever
Not a bad hotel, I'm not sure about the price (hotel was booked by my company). There's a free breakfast (mostly sweet pastry - italian style). I had a small but decent room. Staff can speak english (but not very good).
Comfortable and clean for a one night stopover before we caught a ferry. Staff very helpful. Breakfast wasn't great. They had ran out of bread and the pastries looked a bit old. Parking didn't feel very secure but our car was fine. Very good value.
Hotel Gauro is situated along a busy road near the coastline. It's easy to reach by car. They have their own parking garage across the street. Breakfast is nice with many sweet pastries and excellent coffee / cappucino / espresso. Room is good size with TV with many channels, free WIFI and bathroom with shower. We had room with a balcony with seaview - there is a road and a gas station in between though. Hotel is close to the Baia museum and the dive centre that dives in Portus Julius. Staff is very friendly and at the reception they speak english quite well. So we had avery pleasant stay here. Beds are quite hard though - too hard for us anyway. But the hotel did arrange some extra pillows to sleep on.
I'm easily pleased so I liked this place. Again, it was a place to rest our heads (2 adults/1 child). We had no intention of using any hotel facilities except their wi-fi which was advertised as free and available in all rooms (a main spec when we choose a hotel) - NOT TRUE! Unless you were in a room near a router you had to sit in the corridor to get a signal. When I asked/complained about this the receptionist checked my booking and said "what do you expect at this price". I agreed, I guess! We paid about €40 for this room! She was right but it does say in the blurb that there is free wi-fi in all rooms! Yes, I sat in the corridor! As normal, we booked this room late and on the day and on the web. It was value for money for us but would not be if you paid more and were expecting more! Our room was at the front with a 'sea view'. It's true. You could see the sea over the top of the derelict warehouses/factories and the really busy road out front. I liked this but others may not. Pozzulio is buzzing and as a stay over for Naples in the morning, it's ok.
Breakfast was not speciel , but okay. There where missing some ham and chees. One mobning we waited ten minutters for some Bread. Fine location and kind People's in the lobby. Problem in paying by visakart.
The hotel is well located if you don't want to stay in Naples while visiting the area.There is a bus stop just along the road and the metro a short walk away. The room we had was clean,comfortable and well presented. Breakfast was good with cornflakes and croissants and good coffee. The internet connection was only variable at best from our room was a bit disappointing so we had to use the lounge to check what we wanted to on the internet. We did have a bit of trouble communicating with the young woman on the front desk when we arrived to locate the car park which was across the road and down to a garage.She didn't speak or understand much English and we were unable to communicate in Italian. Only really downside for us was the toilet didn't flush on the night we arrived and we were moved from the ocean view room to one at the back of the hotel.It would have been good to have been moved back to that room once the toilet was fixed the next day.
PRO Good value. Kind people at the Lobby. Rooms are clean an well maintained. Free wifi. Good "italian" breakfast: bread, butter, jam, "Cappuccio", a choice of juices. Pretty Silent. Dish television in every room. CON Unfortunately, In the morning there was no hot water, and they did not manage to have it fixed in 1,5 hours. I had a cold water.
For our visit to the Campi Flegrei, we were originally booked to stay at Hotel Gli Dei, which is up on the hillside, overlooking Pozzuoli. After being messed around by them, we decided to cancel and ended up with a last minute deal for Hotel Gauro, which was over €300 CHEAPER than Gli Dei for our 4 night stay. Now, Gauro really is just a B&B; the bar was not open the whole time we stayed, and the Wifi didn't work. But the room was clean, we had a balcony with a great sea view of the bay and Capri, and the staff were pleasent enough. It is in an industrial area, so there is not much nearby, but it is the ideal location for exploring the area by car. There are also local buses outside the hotel, and it is only about 10 minutes into the bars and restaurants of Pozzuoli or Arco Felice. All in all, we were very happy with our visit, and the money we saved.
