Comfortable and cheap Hotel. {3 star}

Good family hotel with a private sandy beach 50 metres from the hotel. We arrived at Salerno rail station and they pick up us by the hotel mini-van free of charge.

Nice and clean rooms with air conditioning during all day and night. Good location between the Amalfi Coast, Positano and Ravello and Paestum. From the port of Salerno you can catch a ferry to Capri and Amalfi every morning, (take the public bus from the hotel, also to the ruins of Pompeii). The prices are good, we spent for 1 week for my self and my wife, 490 euros; 70 euros per night including breakfast. They offer also a dinner. I really recommend this hotel.

Overpriced for the area. Watch out for the cancellation charges!! {3 star}

The hotel building & rooms are ok but the atmosphere there is zero!! The staff were sullen - most untypical of any other Italian hotels I've stayed in.

The surrounding area is awful. Do not consider staying here unless you've got a car. I drove for about 4 miles in each direction around the hotel but I didn't see anything of interest unless you count "ladies of the night" during the day time!! Or old deserted army buildings. I think the hotel is overpriced for the area it is in.
