We arrived at this hotel hot and sweaty after the trek up quite a steep hill, took us about 20mins (quicker the fitter you are!) from the main bus stop in Casamicciola Terme. We were met by a lovely man who showed us to our rooms and then left us to relax. We had one of the garden rooms in the lemon orchard, I think there were 5 or so rooms in this little building with a large sun terrace on the roof. Although this hotel is located up quite a steep hill, it is a rewarding trek as the location is quiet and away from the main crowds. Unfortunately there seems to be a hotel nearby who seem to play pretty loud music fairly late, but there isn't much that can be done about that. Also watch for mosquito's, we got bitten a lot while sitting relaxing outside our room. There is a supermarket literally 1minute from this hotel, which was really useful. The bus also goes past it, although we found it was often easier to walk down and catch it from the town. They are a bit hit and miss with the timetables! Also extremely cramped and we weren't even there in the middle of the main tourist season! In the room they had lovely waffle towels, a decent shower, bars of soap and shampoo sachets supplied. They say the water is not drinkable here so we grabbed bottled water from the shop. There is a TV (no English speaking channels that we could find.) No air conditioning so the rooms do get quite warm during the night and if like me, you get bitten by the mosquito's then you will probably want to keep the inner doors closed, so a fan/air conditioning would be a good addition. There was an electric socket which was hanging off the wall a bit, so a little tlc and this place would be pretty amazing. Beds comfy and breakfast was lovely. Wasn't too sure about the coffee, but the tea and juices were good. Ask for cold milk if you need it for your cereal! Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return! Loved the location and would recommend to friends and family.
