Built in 1870, the Grand Hotel Parker’s is an elegant grande dame with fantastic views of the Bay of Naples from its elevated position in the city’s posh Corso Vittorio Emanuele neighborhood. The classic Italian interiors showcase chandeliers, antiques and sculptures, and the 82 guestrooms feature oak parquet floors and marble bathrooms. Book an Executive Room for a sitting room and free soft drinks. All rooms come with a balcony overlooking the hillside, the courtyard or the sea. The hotel is designed for luxe lounging: There’s a library with more than 700 books (some of which date from the 19th century), a cigar bar that also serves rum and chocolate, and a rooftop restaurant for fancy fine dining and wining (the cellar stocks more than 150 labels). Head to the spa for a massage or an ayurvedic treatment, a spell in the sauna or a workout in the air-conditioned gym.
In the Area
Take one of the city’s funicular trains up the hill of Vómero — they’re easy to use and more fun than negotiating the city’s steep streets on foot. There’s a range of world class museums in Naples, including the Museo Archeologico Nazionale, which houses one of the planet’s most stunning archaeological collections. Sample Neapolitan dishes from authentic 17th-century recipes at La Cantina del Sole, in the Spaccanapoli district. Hydrofoils and ferries provide bay tours and daytrips to the nearby islands of Capri, Procida and Ischia.
How to Get There
We stayed two nights at Parker’s and on balance I would recommend it. The hotel has recently been renovated.
The rooms were a slightly odd mix of old and new, but they were comfortable. The bed wasn’t great. The views over the bay were amazing. The photo shows the view of Vesuvius from our balcony.
The star of the show is the 6th floor. Breakfast is served up there and the views are stunning. If you are lucky enough to get a table on the terrace, there are probably fewer more impressive places to eat breakfast.
We ate in the bistro which was ok. We also had drinks on the terrace which was pretty cool. The only complaint would be the drinks menu which was rather limited.
The hotel is well situated for walking into town as long as you are prepared to walk a lot. Good choice overall.
Staying for a few nights at this very friendly and hospitable hotel. The hotel rooms have undergone recent renovation and were of a high quality, though there were a few touch ups to be done (plaster was peeling off in the corridor, the shower head needed to be fixed). The room itself was well proportioned with ample storage space, very clean and tidy, well maintained. The bathrooms were clean and regularly maintained. The whole building exterior could do with some upkeep and sprucing up (the lounge area, the bar)
The staff were very courteous, friendly and in the usual Neapolitan way always going the extra mile - recommended some great restaurants.
The breakfast was sumptuous with high quality ingredients, though we did feel from time to time that the quality of fruits could be improved. The views are stunning and the breakfast staff were always at hand.
The hotel is a bit further away from the city centre / historic centre in a quiet and lovely neighbourhood (and hence the great views). If you dont mind walking for about 10 minutes to the metro station, its a great choice.
The Grand Hotel Parker's is an elegant grand dame. Our room was a very comfortable well appointed old-world duplex king with a spectacular view of the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius and Capri. We highly recommend the hotel for anyone wishing to feel like they live in Napoli. It is away from the busy tourist area, yet close enough to walk. A major asset to the hotel is Marco Giuliano, the Chief Concierge with Les Clefs d’Or (the golden keys.) Marco offered multiple restaurant options (all excellent) and was able to secure a dinner reservation at Da Paolino on Capri. Can’t wait to return to Napoli and The Grand Hotel Parker's.
When arriving at this hotel in the July heat it was so nice to find a table with glasses and a pitcher of freshly made lemon squash with which to refresh ourselves while we booked in.
Our room was nicely furnished and we had a lovely separate bathroom and wash area. We had French windows which opened out onto a small balcony that overlooked the main road - personally i didn’t mind this in the slightest, I love the noise and hubbub - but we also had a view of Mount Vesuvius!
The restaurant was first class , the breakfast choice faultless, the staff polite. The view from the restaurant terrace was wonderful looking down to the Bay of Naples and the town and again Mount Vesuvius. It was simply gorgeous in the evening sitting there with a cocktail!
The Grand Hotel Parker’s is a beautiful hotel sitting high over the Tyrrhenian Sea with sweeping views of Capri, Sorrento and Mount Vesuvius. This hotel is pure luxury with incredibly accommodating, friendly and hospitable staff. The staff are representative of the pride that the people of Naples have for their city. It is a beautiful thing! The front desk staff provided us with a locals dinner recommendation. It was truly the best dinner that we had on our 16 day visit to Europe!
The hotel also has an impressive roof top bar and restaurant that has awesome views and terrific food and drink. One afternoon, we ordered a bottle of Prosecco and they brought out a variety of appetizers free of charge. A huge breakfast buffet is included in your stay, too.
Naples is a wonderful place and before getting there most people we know talked negatively about it, but it was amazing and everyone should visit. And when you do visit, stay at the Grand Hotel Parker’s!
