Fodor's Expert Review Hotel San Francesco al Monte

Corso Vittorio Emanuele 328, Naples, Campania, 80135, Italy

This high-end hotel retains hints of its former life as a Franciscan monastery; the small lobby leads to narrow corridors lined with doors that look dauntingly cell-like, until you enter and find surprisingly spacious, simply decorated rooms, many with their own hot tubs and furnishings no monk would dream of. Also there are majolica-tile floors, and stunning views of the city below and the bay beyond. The hotel's restaurant serves regional specialties, and the wine bar has a selection of smaller dishes.

PROS

  • rooftop pool
  • several nice dining options
  • a monk's wildest dream

CONS

  • isolated location
  • taxi needed to go out at night
  • a little far from the action
  • on a main traffic route
