Hotel San Francesco Al Monte4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The view of the bay of Naples alone was worth far more than what we paid for this excellent hotel. Take a taxi to and from the train station, but once you are here, you are just a short funicular ride from the Via Toledo, where all of Napoli goes shopping. The staff were attentive and friendly, the room was spotless, and although our jacuzzi tub was broken, we still managed to have a lovely bath looking at Mount Vesuvius. The rooftop pool is spectacular. After a day of tromping around the ruins, there was nothing more relaxing than a quick dip in the pool.
Hotel was very nice but pretty far from the Central Napoli train station that we took to Sorrento and Pompeii. Had to take a taxi to the station which cost on the average 20E and 35E to the airport plus tips. The marina was closer where we took a boat to Capri. There was not much to do in the immediate area nor many restaurants. Internet connection cost was expensive 10E per hour whereas other hotels were free in our Bologna hotel and 2E at our Rome hotel. Hotel rooftop pool was beautiful but was only open 9-5 where the area was used as rental space for non registered hotel guests. Wait staff were very accomodating and always had a smile. Hotel rooms were very nice with a sitting room off the bedroom outside the bathroom area and a jacuzzi jetted shower.
