superb hotel with a lovely garden and swimming pool, friendly staff, not far away from the vesuvius, pompei and naples (by car) castellamare di stabia is not the place to be, the hotel is an oasis in a poor neighbourhood
Hospitality, attentivenes of staff, great garden and view over Vesuvio
Perfect for breaking trip between Airport and Amalfi Coast - close to Pompey and Road - good pool to cool off in. Endearing staff tried hard. Not really - it's big and a bit formal - but that is part of it's charm.
The hotel is surrounded by a beautyfully decorated garden/parc, The stuff of La Medusa is very friendly and helpfull. Evrything in this hotel is excellent, well-cared and well decorated. They have a Vantaxi, which is not too expensive. Traffic in Napoli and in the different towns on the Amalfi coast is especially tiring. A good solution is to take the Vantaxi from the Hotel to go to the station of Castellammare di Stabia. The food is very good and you can ask for special italian preparations.We liked it!
beautiful hotel with terraces and palm trees, staff very kind and helpfull the area is not so nice
Amazing staff, the comments on the other reviews are so true, Maria, Antonio thank u, u were wonderful. Francesco too for ur help. This hotel really should be five star, its service & facilities certainly are. I'd consider us to be experienced traveler's, this hotel surpassed all my expectations. You need a car.
the food was excellent, staff was friendly and spoke english. we slept above the restaurant and in the morning the staff was sometimes a bit loud.
fresh prepared orange juice excellennt bar nibbles
very friendly staff and welcoming, lovely room exellent views great location, great food, very relaxing no
I could find no fault at all with the hotel. For us it was excellent. N/A
the location was good for our purpose . Sorrento , Ischia , Napoli < Pompei . Easy to find , and comfortable rooms. The food
The room was spacious, modern furnishing, good working air conditioning, great shower and of course the private beach was wonderful
Very helpful staff! Beautiful room and very clean! I would definitely stay there again! Very good breakfast and dinner was also delicious!
Fine. Well situated for visiting nearly everything by train and bus.The Hotel has a free shutle bus, bringing you to and fromSorrento as well as to the railway stations nearby. Really fine service. The restaurant should offer better meals. But the breakfast really ok.
The view Not really
Great location. Hotel facilities, layout and design were wonderful. The breakfast was amazing No
location,view, noise of the road near the hotel
The front esk reception area personnel were outstanding and gave great service. I want to particularly site lia as most helpfull. Alphonse, Roberto, and Leonardo were very accommodating. The food service personnel did a terrific job including Ciro and Alphonse. They are added an immeasurable dimension to our stay. Please extend our thanks to them. The only proble for us was transportation. But all did work out well for us.
Very good hotel if you have car.Good price for good quality. We booked standard rooms, and received a superior rooms. Very nice staff at reception, in the restaurant and in the spa. Very good breakfast.This hotel has private parking. This pleace ist close to: Pompeji, Vezuvio,Sorento, Amalfii Coast and Neapol. If you go to Neapol take train from Vicko ( do not drive a car!!!!). Ask at reception. Polecam ten hotel z ręką na sercu jeśli jedziesz samochodem. Super lokalizacja, super śniadania i personel nigdy z niczym nie było problemu. Niedaleko miejscowość Vicko gdzie można zjeść świetne jedzenie i z tej miejscowości dojechać do Neapolu.
We booked the hotel since it was close to the Pompei ruins. The hotel was clean comfortable and the staff was very helpful. Their restaurant had excellent very fresh seafood. So it met our objective. Although I liked the hotel it is in a very run down city. I would only recommend it for those that want to be close to the Pompei ruins.
The building is modern, clean and comfortable and the grounds are beautiful. The staff is very attentive and efficient. The continental breakfast is excellent. We were even offered the services of a shuttle bus to reach the ruins and again in the evening to go out for dinner. The wireless Internet, though free, does not work in all the rooms. There is, however, excellent reception in the comfortable sitting area near the reception desk and in the garden.
Hotel was modern, clean and comfortable
Pretty much everything. Very little to say here.
We had enjoyed our stay in Grand Hotel La Sonrisa so much that at the end we just did not want to leave! Beautiful, comfortable hotel with big rooms and lovely pool area and garden. Very clean, very stylish and very friendly staff. The service was excellent.
The rooms were incredible to look at, the grounds were great, and horses grazing were great. The pool was pretty. We found a great place to eat it was called Carmansitas, if you come out of the hotel and take a right it is 2 miles up the road on the left. Menu is in Italain however food was incredible. Almost every dish is 6 euros or less. The staff was not very friendly, except for Danny, he was great. The beds in the Luxury rooms were very hard and very uncomfortable. The refrigerator never stayed cold, and it was very hard to get a outside line.
The Hotel itself -Old fashioned Grand Hotel -very unique Too much decoration-in the middle of nowhere without roadsigns breakfast :cold eggs
The staff tried hard to accommodate us. The main purpose of the hotel seems to be as a wedding venue and the noise on the Saturday and Sunday nights was intolerable. The grounds are very poor, small and nowhere for children to play. The pool was dirty and closed off. Although the staff were friendly, the restaurant had a very limited choice, and we only ate there once, the breakfasts were very basic. Not 5 stars!
As mr. Polese said: At our hotel we don't welcome only aristocrats, we treat everyone like a king, it's trough.
Wonderful dekor- beautiful surrondings. Thats it ! They are living on tours and big weddings. They are not used to have normal hotelguests.
Room was comfortable and clean Overall very tacky with no substance. Grandure at a distance,up close very disapointing. Poor staff service, Jacuzzi did not work, toilet not working but fixed hours after arriving, Pool not available due to wedding party. Not to be recommended as a hotel by an means.
Charming staff, comfortable accommodation, incredibly different from the norm, quite kitch in a good way. Over the top, but one of the most amazing hotels we have ever stayed in. Would definitely recommend it to others. Quite an experience. Live groups/music on both sides of the restaurant in the evening. It was difficult to hear ourselves talk, but not a big issue.
Very helpful and happy staff, and the many things to look at whilst there. All Good.
Very comfortable hotel. Location is excellent in front of Pompeii. Quiet gardens. We had superior rooms which are very comfortable with excellent bed and bathroom. Very friendly staff. Breakfast was perfect. Nothing !
The hotel was clean and pleasant with beautiful grounds, the staff were very helpful. The breakfast variety was limited, but it was fresh and filling. The location was excellent. The sound proofing of the rooms could be better.
Good location near entrance to Pompei ruins room was a little tired. beds were hard
Very charming hotel with a warm and friendly staff.
convenience to Pompeii ruins, friendliness of staff
Welcoming, clean , stylish The shower
The breakfast was precisely what was needed - simple but filling. And the location is excellent. It was slightly tricky to find the hotel from the circumvesuvio train, but there's not a lot they can do about that!
Location was great and it had an "oasis" feel. Very nice nibbles available in the evening. Room was quite warm for the season and it was difficult to cool it off.
great staff, excellent map, fantastic location for exploring the entire bay of naples as well as pompeii, clean hotel and rooms, the free internet, web cam and memory card reader was an excellent feature. Breakfast wasn't brilliant especially for a supposed four star. Have stayed in better three stars in the past, but it met our needs.
Close to Pompei ruins and still a quality hotel. Price was very reasonable. Parking was a bit of a hassle but it was free, so no real complaints.
the view's were wonderful.........from the lobby, on the veranda, from our room..........spectacular roof top seating. we did not enjoy the food at all.
friendly and helpful staff, good facilities and decor. Very clean Only too quiet as not many people staying there. Also no sun loungers for sunbathing.
Facilities. location and the room.
excellent menu of the day; staff is very helpful and friendly.
The location is bad. Service is Extremelly poor. TV was not working. Room was not clean. Wireless internet was not working. Mini bar was empty. No room service. No restaurant around.
Excellent location near to important ancient sites. Good views from the roof. The pool is much smaller than the pictures on the internet suggest.
The pool was delightful, and the views were lovely. Check out time was not clearly communicated.
Friendliness of staff Kennel close to the hotel a lot of dogs barking!!!
Location and View, restaurant
Friendleness of the staff of shuttle bus service the shuttle bus times could have been a bit more frequent
One of the best hotels we have stayed in and our holiday was an absolute pleasure Nothing
Loved the location and the view of the beach No
OUr view from the balcony was amazing!! The pool staff was not very friendly. All the other staff were superb.
It was a beautiful hotel tucked away in the cliffs of Positano. The views were magnificant I didn't like that we had to leave! :)
The location offers stunning views of Positano. The hotel staff were very welcoming and efficient and the room, although slightly dated, was very comfortable and quiet at night. We used a car which was collected and dropped off at the hotel for us whenever we needed it. We didn't eat an evening meal in the hotel but the breakfasts were delicious! All in all a very relaxing stay. make sure you don't get a room next to the lift!
Hotel Staff excellent except the pool attendant he had an attitude problem.Food and service excellent. The beds very uncomfortable
Excellent customer service.
It was an excellent location, and we loved the view overlooking the town and the street action below. The staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was just fine.
Very clean, nice and comfortable room and staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast at this hotel and service great. Great central location in Positano, near to city bus and coastal buses. Good value for the money. No.
We loved our private terrace with views of the village of Positano and the ocean. We liked being in the middle if the bustle of daily life. Our short walk to the town center and beach was appreciated. Enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace. Staff at Savoia were very friendly and helpful. Small shower stall.
The staff were very helpful. The hotel was ideally located close to the beach.
Rooms were lovely and the staff were attentive and efficient. A bit pricey, especially drinks.
centered location and that's it, unfortunately.... The staff in the restaurant are not professional at all, the towels and sheets were so old which was terrible, stuffy bathroom and very odd 70 years old TV set. Quite weird thing for the 4 stars hotel....a big delusion....
It is a good quality hotel with very helpful staff
Hotel Stabia provided an excellent service, friendly, professional with VIP treatment. It was relaxing and welcoming from the first day to the last, the staff are exceptional and I thank them all for such a pleasurable stay and look forward in staying with them in the future. The shower cubical could be a little larger and the shower head would have been better if it was adjustable for washing hair.
The hotel location is central and convenient to go on day trips such as to Pompeii and also to Sorrento & the Almafi coast. The location of the hotel is on the main road to Sorrento. it is a very busy road with no sidewalksand there is major construction within 5 miles which seems to back up traffic every evening. Other than the hotel the only places to eat are at least 15 minutes by car in either direction at neighboring towns. In addition the staff spoke very limited english. We had a problem with the shower but they did not speak enough english to understand the problem. A minor point is that the room is advertised with "sea view". What they don't tell you or show in the pictures is that the view just below the hotel is a ship building yard and the busy road mentioned above.
The staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful. They had no hesitation in preparing a full days schedule for a tour of the Amalfi Coast.
Friendly service; garden Room a little noisy
The very kind and warm personell, the beautiful garden. We felt at home immediately. Just like we were part of the family. sometimes noisy in the night ( cleaning the streets, traffic ) but we did not find this very bad, especially because the things I mentioned above
The helpfulness of the staff, the beautiful courtyard gardens, secure car parking, in all a really good experience. I very rarely rate anything as excellent but this hotel is really close to being so. There was less sound insulation from adjacent rooms than I would have like, although the occupants were not particularly noisey.
Extremely nice, helpful, and friendly staff. Staff positive attitude to hotel guests is really exceptional there. Very clean and very nice atmosphere. I strongly recommend Diana hotel for visiting not only Pompei and Vezuvius, but also Napoli. When you will visit Pompei you will be able to compare clean, attractive, and friendly Pompei and Diana hotel with situation in Napoli. Napoli is very interesting for visit but I strongly recommend not to stay there but in Diana hotel im Pompei. Napoly is just 25-30 minutes from Napoli cetral station by train.
Excellent location, convenient to historical site. Very small room.
I thought the Reception Staff were very friendly & helpful, they did all they could to make our stay enjoyable.
After a long trip down to Pompeii, we were welcomed into the oasis of the Hotel Diana, by great staff and wonderful ambiance. Highly recommend.
Great proximity to Pompei train station and a 10 minute walk to main entrance of ruins.
We booked only one night and stayed for 3 nights :-) very nice hotel staff, perfect location in Pompei town centre, very clean, safe parking, internet ...
Ask for Allesandro as a tour guide
It was a nice family runned hotel, located very nearby Pompei excavations. You can park the park behind the hotel in a safe private parking lot. We also had a nice balkony. Breakfast is good. People very friendly. No
They took good care of us. Someone was always there. They knew our name. Were very helpful in getting around town. It was close to the places we wanted to go. Pompeii was just a couple of blocks away. We took the train to Sorrento which was about a 15 minute walk. Our next stop was Mt. Vesuvuis which was a short trip. Very convenient location.
Staff very helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is perfect for visiting the ruins in Pompeii or the main shopping centre. No
friendliness of staff and locality not much for breakfast
I loved he staff, very family oriented, good location, nice balcony facing the mountains, great bread at breakfast
Friendly staff let us into room at 11am to leave baggage and organised taxi for departure. Very noisy plumbing!
The hotel was in a convenient location, very close to Old Pompei. The staff were friendly and tried their best to help you find your way around town. The rooms are basic, but clean and satisfactory. The rooms aren't very soundproofed. I could hear, very clearly, conversations, televisions, dogs, and motorcycles throughout the night. The hotel is good for one or two nights, but not for long term stays.
It was the best hotle we stayed in in Italy! The people who ran it were incredibly friendlsy and very very helpful and kind!!! The breakfast was elegant the room quiet and clean and comfortable..the people were the best part!!!!!!!
Friendly, helpfull staff. Clean, comfortable room. Good views from balcony. Secure accomadation with gated parking.
Nice hotel, 5 minute walk to Pompeii. Free parking, nice staff and breakfast
Loved the hotel & especially enjoyed the private terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Ocean. Hard to find such a good breakfast in Italy. Bus stop located in front of the hotel.
The staff recommended several great restaurants, and also helped set up driver to take us to Pompei. The scenery was magnificent.
Service from the staff,pleasant,cheerful and very helpful
The views Their arrangements regarding parking
Staff was helpful and kind, especially for Italians. Arranged car to transfer us to/from Naples train station. Location was a little high up in the town. It made the trek to/from city center and the beach quite long and arduous. Still, easier to access than other hotels.
hotel staff and location
Rooms were as they were depicted; clean and fresh. Staff were very helpful in recommending excellent restaurants and taxi service made the evenings out so enjoyable as we could both enjoy wine with our meals. In room Internet was not working which meant we had to go to the lobby for access. This was a disappointment.
We absolutely loved the view...it was wonderful to have when you wake of a morning! A man at Reception was not pleasant upon arrival (he was not wearing a name badge) and it did not make us feel welcome which was unfortunate being our honeymoon. As a travel agent I was quite disappointed.
Staff were great. Very helpful. We had a very large terrace with probably one of the best views in the world. Cannot think of anything.
I liked the location and the hotel staff.The owners were wonderful and very helpful. It was noisy.
Great hotel with wonderful views. Staff were very helpful. Also, hotel offers free boat trips, great bonus. Bathrooms are very small and showers are too tiny.
Beautiful spot on the Amalfi Coast, and a good choice if you want to be able to walk to town/breach/restaurants/etc.
the ambience of the hotel was magical and the staff were friendly helpful and so hospitable. the view from the bedroom was stunning. and the terrace off th ebedroom was a lovely spot to sit and relax at
Location with fantastic view, excellent place for relax. Nothing!
The view from our room was fantastic, the buffet breakfast was also quite impressive there was a lot to choose from. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel did not offer a shuttle service down to beach. Bringing luggage down to the ferry was also quite difficult so we had to pay a porter to do it. This should really be included in the price of the accomodation.
The hotel was extremely clean and well looked after. Not luxury but very professionally run and very neat and tidy. All staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them. A very good atmosphere and a real pleasure to stay in.
The view, the terrace, the cocktails and dinner, the manager and hostess, the breakfast. The staff was helpful. Was nicely furnished. The matress and the pillow.
This was the second time we have stayed at the hotel and being a family-run business it has the ideal mix of friendliness, helpfulness and peace that one wishes for in this ideal location.` We found our bedroom rather noisy as it was situated below the kitchens. We asked to change the room but as the hotel was fully booked it was not possible. Whilst slightly annoying to be woken at 6am it did not deter us from enjoying our holiday.
The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were very polite and friendly. They made us feel very welcome. There was a very pleasant atmosphere in the hotel.
