Hotel Miramare Stabia is a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning gem on Italy’s Bay of Naples. This tranquil, beachfront hotel in the city of Castellammare di Stabia blends the calm of a beach vacation with all the sights and sounds of an exotic city escape. Naples, Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii are within reach, as are the Amalfi Coast’s picture-perfect villages and beaches.
The hotel oozes Italian style, from the minimalist décor to the chic, sea-view pool to the views across the water. The restaurant and lounge areas are cool and calm, with whitewashed walls dotted with bright works of art. After a day spent lounging beside the rooftop pool, there are plenty beachfront bars where you can refresh yourself with a traditional aperitivo, or join the locals for the evening passeggiata along the promenade.
Your Superior Sea View room is light and airy, with whitewashed walls, stylish furnishings and a balcony with a sea view.
Hotel Miramare Stabia’s restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine in a stylish dining room, and the snack bar is on hand for light lunches.
Hotel Miramare Stabia sits right on the seafront in Castellamare di Stabia, in Campania. Naples is a 40-minute drive up the coast, and Pompeii ruins are reached in a quick 20-minute taxi ride. Mount Vesuvius is around 50 minutes away, between both Naples and Pompeii, and Sorrento is a 45-minute drive down the coast.
How to Get There
We've just returned from a stay at Hotel Miramare Stabia and unfortunately it was distinctively average. We arrived around 3pm and our room wasn't ready so we ended up eating at the hotel as we'd been travelling all day and were hungry, the menu didn't have much choice and the food was ok.. I've had much better so we only had breakfast for the remaining days, which once again was ok.. nothing to write home about.
The room.... my husband got bitten to bits all over his legs and arms whilst we were at this hotel, we left a bottle of coke on the side and when we came back in at night there were ants all over the sideboard and floor... the bathroom was old fashioned and dusty. It looked like it needed a good clean. I've stayed in much nicer rooms and I feel like the hotel could do with some money spending on it and refreshing up a little. There were hardly any plug sockets which was a pain when you're trying to get ready, and the hairdryer provided in the bathroom was so slow so take your own!!!
The staff in the hotel well.. the majority were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you, but some of the men did nothing but stare and it's very off putting.
There is no car parking at the hotel, but there is parking a few minutes walk away priced at 10 euros a day.
The hotel location isn't great, and it was a long drive to Amalfi and 50 minutes to Sorrento so if you're wanting to be in the thick of it, don't stay here. We definitely wouldn't return to Hotel Miramare.
We had a superior room. It was huge and clean, with a big king size bed and a stunning view directly to tha Napoli Bay. The staff was very kind and helpfull. Clean rooms and a good athmosphere. we was recommended by local people, not to swim in the bay. But the hotel pool was nice and clean.
We found out that the city was charming and authentic although a lot of garbage in the streets.
This hotel was far to expensive for what we got, although if you shop around I believe you can get deals much cheaper than the £300 a night we paid. The photos show lovely coffee makers in the room but when we asked for coffee we were told they didn't understand what we wanted. We paid extra for one of their best rooms and except for the space and the large bath there really was not anything that justified the high price. The staff fitted into two categories either extremely charming and helpful (2 Luigis on reception) or unhelpful and rude. The location is dreadful, you would not want to sit on the beach and it is a long journey to Sorrento and Amalfi. We asked at reception on more than 3 occasions if they could recommend a restaurant but all they kept saying was to use the hotel restaurant which we did not like as there was not enough choice on the menu. The room looked lovely however it had no long mirror, a lack of plug sockets - so nowhere to dry or style hair and only 4 small drawers. The hotel was very calm and quiet and both nights we went to the bar and were the only ones in there. On our last night we were woken by a disco on the hotel's terrace. I phoned reception and all I could hear was loud music and screaming teenagers. This did not fit in with the ambiance of the hotel and I do not believe those attending were residents at the hotel. I phoned down to reception and they said that it would stop at 12 but there was nothing they could do about the noise. The music and screaming finally finished at 1 am.
