If your room is at the back of the hotel and the first thing you see, don't be put off. Everyone can enjoy the fabulous view at breakfast, even when the restaurant was busy we got a window seat each of the 4 mornings we stayed. We ate 1 evening meal at the hotel and the view was completely different, but just as stunning. During the day you can admire Mount Vesuvius , the boats cruising out from the Port and the Island of Capri. At night, no Island or mountains but the Bay is very prettily light up. There was plenty to eat:scrambled eggs, bacon, cold meats and cheeses, and lots of cakes and pastries. The Restaurant staff were great, very warm friendly and courteous.
Our bedroom was fine, small and cosy with TV, Fridge, Tea-making facilities and En suite. I felt we were sleeping most of the time we would be in our room,so the view wasn't the most important thing, but my husband says when we go back, he would like a seaview room.
The funicular railway was great, it costs just 1 Euros and there was always one there when we arrived. Note sometimes the train goes straight to the top, don't worry, after a few minutes it will descend and the best stop to get off at is S. Gioacchin, then walk a little downhill to the Hotel.
We traveled by Metro from Piazza Garibaldi to Mergellina,about 2.50 Euros, then walked about 400 metres to the funicular railway. We got lots of warnings about pickpockets, but we always felt safe and made sure we looked after our bags/money. We found the locals very friendly and helpful when we asked for advice. We got a taxi to the airport, agreed the price of 23 euros, I'm all for saving money, but it saved the funicular, the metro and the bus but can be done on a budget. less
