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...

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...

This is a great place to stay. Be brave and venture out using the funicular to get down the hills. Helps avoid lots of steps! Exploring the hotel took us into old parts and walls showing the rocks of the mountain it was built into. The management should give tours!! The view from the restaurant is fabulous. On the 4th...

Reviewed 8 April 2017

The hotel is very comfortable with magic views from the terrace restaurant and the rooms over the city A bit out of the main town and it might be hard for some to walk "home" up the hill. A 6 or 7 euro taxi fare will do the trick.

We enjoyed a one night stay in early April in preparation for departure from the airport. We chose this hotel for the view and it did not disappoint (see the photos). The views were extraordinary. The staff of the hotel was very friendly; the room was efficient; and we enjoyed a restful sleep. I disagree with other reviews that it...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the S. Francesco al Monte hotel.

Good hotel room with comfy bed, stunning views of Naples and Mount Vesuvius from room and roof terrace. Staff were friendly and experienced good service throughout our stay.

Dear Ellie, Thanks for your review! I am glad that you enjoyed the comfort of our beds and the friendliness of our staff! Typical places that you mentioned in the Spanish quarter are called "trattoria" prices are lower than a restaurant (and rightly so), but in my view the two types of restoration can not be compared Hoping to welcome...
