How to Get There
I am a frequent customer of the Hotel Vanvitelli in Caserta.
Last time I experienced a beautiful experience. I was working in the morning and came to have breakfast near the closing time. I was perfectly attended. Moreover, I received a phone call before I could sit down. I could not start until I ended my phone call 15 minutes later. I was afraid of asking for anything, but instead of that, the waitress at the restaurant were very sensitive and kind. They offerred me a great breakfast (as usual) and attended me with a smile. This is not common. With you behaviour, you exceeded my expectations. I wish you success.
The hotel is very nice from outside and inside We were in building with spa that is was good to visit spa (20€ per person for 2 hours) but very close to noisy road.
The breakfast is very good also 3-course dinner with free water/wine were good value.The standard room was not big especially wardrobe is very small.
Despite the appearance of being a 4+ star hotel, and in the Grand tradition, the Vanvitelli has seen better days, perhaps. It's still very presentable and grand in size, with some nice amenities, but it is far from being opulent as this time. The rooms are fairly spacious, and the bathrooms ample as well. But the property has not been maintained to the high standard that a Grand Hotel should be. The furniture in the rooms are dated, show obvious wear. The location is central, but not so easy to get to. Right adjacent to the autostrada, but far from the exit, and lots of traffic along the main roads. The entrance is also not so easy to find, especially at night, and it can be hard to cross traffic to enter. There is a second entrance off the side street which we happened to find, but it is poorly marked coming from the main road and we missed it at first. They should explain these to guests in the confirmation emails. Also noteworthy is that at this time of year (Nov) the air conditioning in the rooms are not working, and therefore you cannot even turn on the fan to get any ventilation. We had an inside/courtyard room, so the staff was able to switch us to an exterior facing room so that we could at least get fresh air from outside. We were also given a larger room which was a nice bonus, so kudos to the staff. The breakfast buffet was adequate, but also slightly disappointing and nothing particularly different from other hotels we've experienced in Italy. In fact, the scrambled eggs were rather moribund, not very fresh at all. The serving staff was attentive and friendly, but the food lacked any "grandness". However, given these shortcomings, the hotel is reasonably priced. Just lower your expectations a bit.
The Hotel is few minutes by car from the "Reggia di Caserta" but the location in not really the best, the main road is heavly trafficked. If you are not from the area be aware that most of the people do not respect the road rules...
We had a quite a nice room, it was quiet, clean and confortable we did not hear any noise from the street however more attention to the condition of the room may help (the panel control was a bit loose, the sink in the bathroom had the lever for closing and opening the cap damaged, I almost injured myself.
The receptionists were ok, the staff at the breakfast was not the best, they do not greet the guest except for once. The breakfast was good but it need more love and attention (scrumbled eggs was overcooked, one morning the scrumbled eggs was green)
We’ve stayed here before. We came again for it’s opulent regal classic comfort only 30mins drive in a straight line from Naples airport, easy access from the E45. There’s a massive shopping centre 5mins drive away if you want to meet pop stars. Hotel parking is plentiful & spacious within gated grounds. Room sumptuously decorated, spotless & huge. Plush velvet & leather armchair seating in the reception hall. Last time we were on the top floor, where the view over the balcony down to reception was stunning featuring a crystal chandelier & rainbow dazzle from the stained-glass rooftop ceiling. There’s a gym & swimming pool in the grounds, plus photos of the spa dotted around but we didn’t have time to visit. Breakfast was included in the price, offering a good range of hot, cold & cake foods. Highly recommended to everyone as a hidden gem.
