Reviewed June 22, 2007

This hotel can only be described as a faded gem. Be aware that the image you see on the web is that of the side entrance, no longer used. The hotel is situated in the hills above Capua, near a little village called Durazzano (follow the via appia south, and you will come across the signs pointing left up into the hills). It's location is serene, high above the surrounding area. Family owned, this is the perfect place to totally 'chill'. Loved by the locals (always a good sign for us) there is always an animated group there each evening. The hotel is open all year, but is geared for the tourist season beginning in mid May and ending in early October. We arrived in early May, and the hotel had chosen that week to install a lift, so there was much banging and drilling throughout the day - this work should be finished by the time you read this.
Salvatore, the owner, (who speaks better English than my Italian) cannot do too much for you, the food is rustic but superb, and very very inexpensive - a 3 course meal for two with wine cost less than €30. The rooms are spacious, clean but basically furnished. The views from your balcony are stunning, open rolling countryside stretching away for more than 20 miles - and the dawn chorus each morning has only been beaten for us by an African dawn. Not the place to bring children (there is absolutely nothing for them to do, nor any English TV), but the place to find yourself, let the troubles of the world fall away, and enjoy an Italy that tourists drive past whilst searching for the normal hotel blandness that we all know is out there. A car is absolutely essential, and with one you can find a plethora of local restaurants and bars in quite spectacular surroundings. Visiting the Guardanapoli is a travellers, not a tourists experience. A lovely place. To put it all in perspective, when we stayed we were the only guests, and on arrival we were met by a young man in a sweatshirt and jeans who brought the owners to 'see to us'. Within 15 minutes the same young man reappeared in the hotels uniform, with a collar and tie, and that set the standard for the rest of our stay. Lovely place, lovely food, lovely people. A timeless place.
