Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for 2 great nights. Comfortable bed great views from windows. Light comes in early as no curtains in bathroom and no blackout in bedroom. Helpful staff. Enjoyed lunch on rooftop. We parked our car here 25euro per day Would definitely stay here again Just a 20 minute walk to some great restaurants. be careful to take the right route when walking there are a few dodges streets if you go down the stairs across the road. Better to walk further down the take 51 stairs on left then turn right onto Toledo down hill then turn left, walk to the bottom and reach shopping restaurant area Main Street. Pompeii was great to visit.

Short weekend stay with wife was perfectly complemented by some time here. Rooms are perfectly Italian but acceptably modern. Room with a balcony and table overlooking the bay was great, and wine quality was excellent. Great base from which to explore.

I spent four nights at this beautiful and eclectic hotel in Napoli. My room was extremely spacious, and had a stunning view (from the fifth floor) and loads of character. The pool terrace offers jaw-dropping views of all of Napoli, the Bay, and Vesuvius. The gardens are breathtaking. Unfortunately, the pool closes at 5pm, which seems really, especially if you want to get in full day of sightseeing before relaxing by the pool. The hotel's location on the hill has pluses and minuses. On the plus side, the view is unparalleled and its nice to be above the (wonderful) chaos of the city. However, there aren't many great restaurants close by so you need to walk a fair distance (which is a good chance to discover more of the city), take a taxi, or hop on the funicular which is close by. I got lots exercise (walking) while staying here, but that suits me really well. Napoli is an amazing city, so I plan to return. When I do, I'll stay at this great hotel.

We spent a great 4 nights here - enjoyed the breakfasts (and late night drinks) on the terrace with stunning view of Bay of Naples and Vesuvius in the distance. Swimming pool on the roof was also great.

We just spent 2 nights at the San Francesco and enjoyed the historical ambience of this unique hotel. The staff was very helpful in making recommendations on restaurants and other attractions close by and the best way to get to them. Not a lot of choices for meals around the hotel. The restaurant of the 4th floor was very good with excellent service. The pool and the gardens on the 7th floor was an added bonus. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Hotel San francesco al Monte on the last night of our Amalfi coast holiday and were not disappointed. Checking in was easy, parked right outside and they took the car off for efficient amalfi coast parking! The room was clean and recently renovated, but still with lots of old world charm. The beds were the most comfortable of our trip....I could have stayed there all evening! The bathroom was clean and new with a good shower. After dropping our bags, we headed up to the roof terrace for a drink and a swim. The roof terrace is amazing, with a lovely pool up against the cliff and a whole garden to wander round with amazing views of the city. It was a little disappointing to find that our time on the roof terrace was limited as it and pool closed at 5:30, so we got changed and went out for a drink. When we returned we went to the bar on the 4th floor which is also the restaurant and breakfast terrace, it is a great location, but did not really seem set up for late drinks as there was not a designated bar area...It is more of a lounge. Perhaps it will be more drinks orientated during the season... Definitely one to check out and a memorable experience.

This boutique hotel is full of character. It is a converted 15th century convent of Franciscan Order with beautiful interiors. Fantastic views from the windows and excellent location - 15 min walk to Chiaia , 20 min walk to the ancient town. The roof terrace and breakfast terrace on the 4th were my favourites - a perfect spot to relax after day 's sightseeing ( so much to see!) - amazing garden, lots of shady spots to enjoy a book , stunning views of the Bay of Naples. Loved it!

This has been the most amazing stay I have ever experienced. The rooms are converted monk cells which are spacious and the bathrooms right out of a magazine. If you are lucky to get a room to the street side you will have the most amazing view of the bay of Naples with the Vesuvius on the background but you will have to get up early (sunrise). At night on the week end you will hear the normal night life of young people on the street, not to worry as they stop early enough for you to be able to sleep. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed.

Lovely hotel with welcoming in friendly staff. This unique hotel is a former convent - it's well worth a wander around to explore the building itself. Rooms clean and comfortable although they can be a little stuffy if the windows are not opened - remember this is not a purpose built hotel. Generous terrace on room 56 with lots of morning sunshine. Beautiful rooftop garden and pool area (pool was open), again with fantastic views. The air conditioning is seasonal - it was not on when we arrived on 13th May - manager explained they were waiting for the weather to warm up a little more. Air-con was switched on a couple of days later (15th May) - don't try to over cool the room as the air-con unit gets noisy if you set the temperature below 16 degrees Celsius. Lovely breakfast on terrace overlooking bay of Naples with views of city, Capri and Versuvius. Easiest transport to city centre is the Montesanto Funicular, turn left out of hotel, about 300m to station (only one stop) where you can walk into the historic centre or get metro from nearby Montesanto to Napoli Garibaldi the main railway station. Be very careful around Garibaldi Station as the area is bad for pickpockets (their distraction antics did not fool us). Some trains are not very modern and get very crowded, especially those of Circumversuviana services to Pompei and Herculaneum. Taxi from airport is 25 Euros - check with hotel for best time to order taxi when returning to airport.

Lovely hotel overlooking the Bay of Naples with a fantastic panorama The terrace restaurant has food to match the view Some quirky features in the hotel which enhance the experience Great garden terrace with pool but not open until 15th May Very friendly staff Best to use the funicular close to the hotel as the location is on the hillside some way from centre Worth considering independent trips to Pompeii and Herculaneum that save on the organised trips on offer from hotel The ferry to Capri is a must if you have time Naples can be hectic and frenetic so this hotel is an oasis of calm and tranquillity to retreat to at the end of the day
