Grand Hotel Vesuvio, Naples

Grand Hotel Vesuvio

The Grand Hotel Vesuvio is every bit as stately as the name suggests. An historic landmark on the waterfront, it has direct views of the Castle dell’Ovo and the Bay of Naples. The location is ideal for exploring the city or strolling along the Lungomare in search of one its notable pizzerias or seafood restaurants. Rooms and suites are classic in style, furnished with antiques and artwork, while still managing to feel light and airy. The Caruso roof garden restaurant is an oasis of calm above the crowds; great for an evening drink or meal against the dramatic backdrop of the bay and Mount Vesuvius.

Rooms

Rooms are bright and airy, with views of either the Bay of Naples and Castle dell’Ovo, or of the bustling Neapolitan streets below. Tall windows or balconies give height to the rooms, while filling them with natural light. This complements the antique furniture and paintings, lending a refreshing air to the space. The elegant, marble en suite bathrooms are well-equipped with baths and/or showers.

Location

Standing on the lively waterfront, the Grand Hotel Vesuvio is steps away from Naples’ bars and restaurants and under 20 minutes’ walk from the central Capela Sansevero or Piazza Plebescito. Being right on the seafront, you're well placed to explore the bay; take a boat to Capri Island or down to the Amalfi Coast.

Food and drink

The Caruso roof garden restaurant was named after Italian opera singer, Enrico Caruso - a frequent guest at the hotel. It has indoor and outdoor seating on the leafy terrace, and serves first-rate Neapolitan and Mediterranean cuisine in a modern setting. On the ground floor is a lobby bar, which is open every evening for cocktails and traditional pre-dinner hors d'oeuvres.

Families

There’s also a childcare service, and a range of exercise machines.

Facilities and activities

The Echia Club is the hotel’s spa and fitness suite, offering an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Turkish baths, Jacuzzi baths and a range of exercise machines.

Our opinion

We recommend the Grand Hotel Vesuvio for its high standards, its heritage and its location. Fresh and modern, it has a wonderful roof garden for admiring the city and coastline in peace.
