This is really just a business hotel which I would be happy to stay in if away on business - Not somewhere I would recommend for a vacation - Nothing really stood out as exceptional The hotel has an environmentally friendly policy which meant it was impossible to get the water any hotter than luke warm and if you wanted you room cleaned and towels changed you had to specifically request this The shower curtain was about 6 inches too short, which meant that the bathroom floor got soaked every time you had a shower
Nice large room. Good breakfast. Inconvenient garage set-up, around back of hotel and paying in and out. The TV set was too complicated and no clear directions in the room as to how to operate. One of 2 TV's did not work properly.
Beautiful hotel in a lovely location, not far to walk for ferry or train station. Very good value for money compared to so many others.
Good location( close to station and town) with lovely seaviews from good sized balcony. Comfortable chairs on balcony.Attractive spacious foyer. Large spacious rooms with good sized flat screen TV.Large bathroom and thick good sized towels.Staff pleasant and helpful. Rooms were stark with no extra comforts. No clock/ radio or little extras that you would expect from this category hotel. Large hanging space but few hangers(3) (requested more but never came) No drawer space. Bathroom large but no shelves or space for toliet bags!Tolietries were poor, (little plastic sachets of shampoo,no creams) so did not make you feel inclined to visit spa. Great views in foyer areas but breakfast room was at back with high windows so no view! Breakfast ok but certainly not gourmet!
great location, and the hotel had lovely big, clean rooms. This hotel is not really aimed at tourists. Recpt staff couldn't really help with organising travels around the area. Seemed to have poor local knowledge. This meant that although the building was 4 star, the experience wasn't...
The very well equiped rooms and the high quality of breakfast.
We liked breakfast best. The buffet had a good variety and we were served fresh fruit beverages with our coffee. The staff at the wellness centre was unhelpful. The facilities were at a standard that we would expect at a three star hotel but not a four star.
Modern clean hotel in very good location. Bar not staffed continuously during the evening. Gave up waiting at one point.
bright room we asked by the internet booking an extra bed for our child, but the reception said their was enough place for the children (3) to sleep in a double bed. A little bit crowdy. We had selected the hotel because they had an indoor swimmingpool. But unfortunatly it was only open between 10-12.30 and 16.30-21.00. We would have liked swimming before breakfast or during the "siesta". Also it was rediculous that only 1 towel was given for the morning and the evening for the swimmingpool.
Very good breakfast,great location,big room and in a nice medium sized town.
Great location - very close to the train station and town center. Parking in the area is very expensive - take the train if possible
It's centrally located to the Salerno train station and Salerno port to the amalfi coast. You use this hotel to simply drop off your luggage, sleep and showrrz Hotel wifi is non existent. The interior could use a new paint job and carpet. It's an older hotel. Don't expect luxury.
Hotel has fantastic location across from train station and bus access.Also, on street with no autos and great shopping.
I've been to this hotel twice already. It's a good location to simply sleep and shower. Very basic but clean. Walking distance to port. The hotel needs to upgrade its wifi service. It's non existent. You can only pick up the signal in the lobby.
Very good location,close to train/bus station, easy for reaching points of interest. Courteous staff. A little overpriced
The proximity to the Railway Station and to the main street of Salerno and eating places.
The convenience to the train station. Nothing. It met my needs.
Location was very convienient , rooms were clean, a little dated Desk clerk was not friendly or helpful at check in...but did not ruin our stay
Close to everything; fantastic breakfast; nice view of piazza; large room and bathroom, large and comfortable bed; attractive and elegant decor; balcony, common area and wi-fi; lively and friendly atmosphere in area around the hotel The traffic noise from the buses and train station made it difficult to have the balcony doors open, but the view was lovely so it was worthwhile; strong smell of cigarette smoke in room next to us late at night and early in morning
Friendly helpful staff, the convenient location as we were catching trains, room size was good. breakfast was not as good as other 3 star hotels we have stayed at, but adequate
Great location near train station and on pedestrian street. Close to car rental. Wif only in lobby.
Functional place within metres of the train station - worked well for us. Some of the furnishings are needlessly cheap (eg. plastic chairs, shower screens), but it works.
Good position with nice views and very comfortable hotel. Staff frendly Diapointed size of supeiror room. Lots of extra charges ie shuttle bus/newspaper/in room internet/massage usage ect
The views from the hotel
Everything is excellent from when we arrive until when we leave.Location is very good, we could enjoy beautiful view from room, everywhere in the hotel. Dinner OK, but not every night. You better try outside restaurant, too. Cheapeer and same level as hotel. Breakfast is good, food, service, no problem at all. Shuttle service is good, driver took us to town when we request. Coming back, he came punctually on time to pick us up. If you can understand Italian language, it's better as you will be in Italy. Of course staff's English is OK, but you have to be accustomed to catch Italian English. If your communication ability is OK, you can enjoy your stay. We love to come back again. Nothing at all.
Excellent spa Restaurant staff were awful - they were slow and brought us the wrong things, dropped things on the floor and were generally unhelpful. We were put in a room in a block that was not yet finished without any terrace/balcony or view at all
The spectacular view and the pool. When we arrived at the hotel, there was nobody to help us with our surcases, so I had to transfer them by myself. For two continuing days the housekeepers forgot to prepare our room and they did it very late (8.00 pm) after our complains.
Views Size of room . Even de luxe was very small
The a la carte Restaurant - Poor quality of food - not 5 star at all! met several guests commenting on it.
staff assistance was excellent lack of beds at the pool and a games room would have been good and in order to use the spa facilities you had to pay €20 per visit per person yet it was advertised as a facility of the hotel !
staff were excellent. facilities were amazing and location was superb.
Super friendly staff, Weddings, weddings, weddings
only the size of the room, only one member of the team of the hotel, who is working in the restaurant. The restaurant (outside) was very nice. Tis is the only part of the hotel where you feel like you in a four star hotel. the elevators and the floor are more than dirty!!!!!
This was our most relaxing stay during more than three weeks' travel around Italy. The setting was lovely after many inner-city stays. Staff in the restaurant were especially good. Needs new carpets, a trivial point for an otherwise pleasant ambience.
The hotel accepts pets and has on site parking both of which are free of charge. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. The hotel is a bit away from the city center so it's better for those traveling with a car..
hotel not 4 stars
Pretty nice hotel. Beautiful. Not far from the sea. Rooms with balcony are very nice and spacious. We were at a special price and satisfied. Rooms are very different. Those that with balcony, very nice and spacious. But there are very small ones. Beach near the hotel costs 10 euros per person and is open only until 18.00. Free beach is two kilometers from the hotel.
good free parking, rooms made clean daily 1) jacuzzi is not a whirpol but just an upgraded tub --> only suitable for 1 person; 2) very far from the centre --> car necessary at all times; 3) booking.com says satellite TV, but no international TV channels (BBC, TVE, CNN,..) are available, only italian channels available and pay films; 4) from half sept approx. the beach and swimming pool close to the hotel (both pay) are closed; 5) breakfast was one of the poorest we experienced in our trip through Italy (bacon and omelete always cold and tasteless), especially when you consider that it's a 4-star hotel; 6) bike rental, as booking.com offers, is not possible at the hotel
Location, price, friendliness of staff. Even rebooked for my return trip.
breakfast!!! do you expect to make your own bed in a 4 star hotel and have to go to reception 4 times to get sheets, towels, glasses because the phone didn't freaking work!!!!
friendly staff and very helpful.
The hotel staff was very service minded, helpfull and friendly. The restaurant food was tasty. The bed in our junior suite was way too hard. It almost felt like sleeping on a wooden plank. Because of this I woke up several times at night, and it was not good for my neck and back (I'm 26 years old). The location as OK, but we had to take a 20 min taxi ride to the city every night.
The friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Our hotel room was not only modern, spotless and very comfortable but also big and roomy. The buffet breakfast was impressive - very good choice - and excellent quality but would also recommend the restaurant. The meals were superb.
This area needed a new four star hotel , it is Ideal for business people having to travel to Solofra during the day The breakfast was not good enough for a 4 star .
Hotel was clean and staff were nice but car is absolutely needed as there're almost no busses passing by the hotel and hotel is 20 mts away from Salerno center by car there was no curtain around the bath so you had to take a bath cuz if you took a douche the bathroom looked like a swimmingpool after that.
I liked that there was cable TV with interchangeable language options. The staff weren't very efficient in terms of service.
Was a very modern place. super clean, but just another typical business kinda place. Sky TV was good. Breakfast is good, had bacon!! the americano coffee at breakfast!! order from the waiter!
The staff was very kind and helpful. The hotel was near the University, convenient for my business trip. The ventilator in bathrooms was not functioning due to a problem in the whole building throughout my weekly stay.
Hotel staff was very helpful: even the hotelmanager checked if everything was to our needs. Free parking, next to autostrada (but you don't have any noise. You need transportation to visit Salerno, Paestum...
Hotel staff was very friendly and was always ready to help you.
It's a nice and new built hotel with lots of opportunities towards the future. Contrary to what is mentioned on the site this hotel doesn't have a swimming pool or welness area yet, they still need to build it...as we were travelling by car it was no issue for us but the situation of the hotel is not so great for tourists as such as it's situated in an industrial area, unless you booked the hotel to visit Ikea which is situated next door...
The rooms were very clean and the breakfast buffet was delicious. The wait staff in the morning were terrific The area did not offer anything. And you really needed a car to get around. I would have liked brouchures/details on tours and shuttles offerings.
Room was beautiful but the bed was surprisingly uncomfortable. The staff in the restaurant were unfriendly and made us feel unwelcome. Visited the restaurant twice and the experience was consistent both times. The rest of the staff were amazing, however. We loved the ladies at the front desk and the bag boy.
Very nice hotel; attentive staff. I think every maid should be instructed to detect clogged drains, so the guests wouldn't have to complain themselves.
This was my favorite stay on the Amalfi. It's a great place to relax and still be able to do day trips if you have a car. The customer service is outstanding, the breakfast is great, and the beds are really comfortable. Enjoy! Nothing!
Fabulous Hotel , Great , Efficient and Friendly staff . Felt as if at home in my own personal villa . Great , healthy and fresh food , superbly prepared by what seems to be your personal chef . Great contemporary design , but not pretentious or uncomfortable like most "boutique" hotels. Brilliant relaxing place and real value for money unlike most tourist traps on Amalfi Coast which are overly expensive tourist traps. beautiful roof top pool and garden terrace. There was nothing I did not like about this hotel ,except the spa bath would not drain and the hot and cold mixer was plumbed back to front.
Lovely country side property but surrounding areas not exciting.Staff very helpful and good English spoken at reception. Not so good in the dining room area!
The silence, and the location which make it very easy to get to other places in the area A good restorant/bar as part of the hotel could be nice to have
very helpful and friendly. Difficult to find and no restaurants in the vicinity but the hotel restaurant is extremely good and reasonably priced. We had an enjoyable stay. Better maps and travel information, but the staff drove us to the station and helped us.
Fantastic customer service
The actual hotel surrounds are good and the facilities were fine. New plants were being planted when we stayed. Clean rooms, internet facilities, a nice pool (but unfortunately we did not get to use it as it shuts at 7pm). This hotel is completely out of the way if you do not have a car. You then need to solely rely on the public transport. Buses are infrequent (and unreliable - we were left waiting a good hour before a bus came along spoiling our days plans). Allow 20 minutes to reach the train station. We stayed here first week of June, but no restaurants were open on the street, so we were forced to utilise the hotel restaurant on the first night which was overpriced (but the service was good). The location of the hotel is a bit ho-hum: along a strip of high-way that has derelict housing (but not uncommon for south of Italy), overgrown fields, dilapidated shops, and just a feeling of neglect. I would only recommend the hotel if you have your own transport (relying on buses was a nuisance ie, you could not miss the 8:10pm bus from Concordia Place otherwise you were stuck in Salerno itself). We did not realise at the time of booking, and it was not until we sussed out the bus schedule (that we would have to wait for an hour or so before the next bus when we arrived in Salerno), but they can pick you up from the train station if you organise it prior to your arrival.
friendly atmosphere Drinks a bit expensive
Front desk was great, got all the info got upgrade and always with a smile
Facilities were great and breakfast was very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We paid for a basic room, but we were upgraded, which was very kind. Nearby Salerno (15mins away) is a good place for eating out and it is generally very nice typical Italian city. Good value for money. Location is poor, but I think you won't be able to find any hotel of this standard on the Amalfi Coast or Salerno. Luckily we had a car, so it was a lot easier. I don't recommend it if you do not have a car. There are no interesting restaurants nearby hence we drove to Salerno each evening. Beach is quite dirty, but we haven't seen private hotel beach (we were not that bothered as weather wasn't good so we only went for a short walk).
interier, brekfast, beach, garden
Very clean and well equiped rooms. All hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Only one resturant within walking distance (elderly parent with us) and the hotel resturant was closed, but we were staying out of season.
the room and pool were very nice. clean, comfy, new, great sun loungers. if you want a lazy few days, we stayed for 4 nights its a good place, any longer we would of been really bored. they were helpful with bus timetable... although the local buses didnt run on time they still did run. the hotel was in a poor location, however we were aware of this - thanks to the reviews on the site.; nothing local to do or see, no where to go for a walk. hard to enjoy any food, i though the evening restaurant opening times of 8pm to 9pm were not adequate, and the food was overprices and not to a high standard, also breakfast was a dissapointment as the cake was stale , and we kept seeing it put on the buffet day after day.
I liked about everything. It is a nice hotel. Enviromentally orienteted, clean and neat. no
staff is very nice, food is good, room very nice and clean, pool clean, beach nice and clean. very good looking gardens. 10 Euros to used laundry room and Iron. the bad directions from booking web page to find the hotel, address was wrong. check the correct address in:www.hotelolimpico.it
location lack of amenities
The hotel is new,luxurious and very clean.There is a private parking place too.
This is the nicest holiday inn I have ever stayed at. It was very clean, modern and comfortable. The rooms were large and well designed. You could even choose between soft and hard pillows!! It was convenient for a motorway stopover but not sure I would stay there on holiday as not in the nicest of locations.
The hotel is excellent! An amazing value for money. You have to have a car though to move around.
The rooms were modern, extremely confortable and very clean. The bed in particular was very confortable. Staff was kind and polite. Unfortunately it is near a motorway even if, thanks to double glazing, no noise problems. Pity for the view!
The hotel staff were very helpful and the rooms were very clean and comfortable I did not like the idea that all air-conditioning was set at 23 in the rooms and could not be altered
Convenient, quiet, with integrated services and very polite staff, it is an ideal choise for business purposes No
the rooms were large and comfortable. the staff was very helpful the shower was not good enaugh
This is an old, well kept building. Spacious, well decorated rooms. Free Wi-fi and parking. Close to the train station, very central hotel. This hotel can also serve as a basis for Salerno town-it is close especially if you have a car. Friendly staff although not all of them english speaking.
Very good hotel and very friendly forthcoming staff. The room got cleaned twice a day (second time when I had dinner). Underground car park and restaurant with reasonable prices, without any atmosphere though. None.
Very nice staff. Good location. Very nice building. Free underground parking.Very good food at hotel restaurant. Average breakfast.
Very central hotel right beside the historic centre of the town and a perfect doorway to many of the attractions of teh Amalfi coast to the South and Naples to the north. The employees were very helpful and friendly and spoke good english. Also they have car parking on - site which is great as it seemed very difficult to find somewhere on the street on the Saturday we were there. Hotel car park is not very easy to find - it's and underground witht ht e entrance on the left as you face the hotel, but there are some one - way systems ion place ariound this busy area. Also there's no lift from the car park to the lobby so you have to walk out the way you come in with your luggage. Having said that the hotel staf were will assist with luggage if you go to reception first.
It is an old hotel but very well kept up. They upgraded us to a small suite with a welcome bowl of fruit. The staff was very friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions and bus schedules. Walking distance from the train station in Cava de Terinni which is a ten minute train ride north of the Salerno train station. The best value we had in Italy. we liked everything
The staff was extremely kind and helpful. Excellent value for money in a charming athmosphere.
The staff was extremly kind and we really enjoyed the cleanliness of the room and the atmosphere of the hotel.Breakfast was excellent and the hotel is a real 4 star.A nice surprise!!! No
Central to were we wanted to be. The breakfast was very poor. For a city which is renowned for good food, it was quite a disappointment.
We were given a very comfortable room and treated very well by the staff. The hotel is very convenient to shopping and restaurants in this town which, while close to the Amalfi Coast provides a sane refuge from the touristic craziness there.
