Hotel Miramare Stabia
What We Love
- Sea views at a chic beachfront hotel near Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast, with breakfastThe views from your balcony, across the Bay of Naples and out to Mount Vesuvius
- Staying just a short drive from Naples, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast
- Toasting your sun-drenched southern Italy escape with a welcome cocktail
What To Know
- Guestrooms are basic but spacious
- Castellamare di Stabia is off the beaten path; not ideal for those wanting major attractions, shopping and nightlife
- The beach isn't pristinely clean
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
Sadly our stay was too short here.
We arrived on an extremely congested Carnival Sunday, and finally luckily found a parking space opposite the hotel. The blue line spaces are parking meter spaces and we luckily paid and displayed from Sunday night to Tuesday morning for just 10 euros, alternatively the car park with an agreement with the hotel down the road is otherwise available for 10 euros a day.
Fabio made check in effortless, with a much appreciated welcome drink too. Whilst here we visited Pompeii by train and Fabio was a wealth of helpful knowledge and spoke perfect English, thank you very much Fabio.
The hotel is very “white”! internally and the décor gives the impression of a ship, peppered with drift wood type art. The room itself was spacious and comfortable with a brilliant sea view. The bed was extremely comfortable and extra pillows were gladly provided when requested. We stayed in March and were lucky enough to have warm weather so we slept with the balcony door open and the sound of the sea directly outside was very special.
Despite the restaurant being quiet as it was low season the food was amazing, the octopus starter and seared tuna were our favourites.
All the staff, without exception, make staying at this hotel such a brilliant experience and we would definitely stay here again.
The town itself is perfectly situated between Pompeii and Sorrento, the easily accessible train station is great for visiting them, Pompeii is just ten minutes by train, taking you directly to the entrance of the ruins. (the price for two of us return was just over 5 euros, travelling and trying to park and then paying to park at the ruins was not a viable alternative). We didn’t get the train to Sorrento from here as we stayed on the Amalfi coast after staying here. The town is a very pleasant promenade front town, and prices are very reasonable compared to its neighbours of Naples, Sorrento, and The Amalfi coast.
I can’t recommend this hotel and its hospitality enough, thank you.
Perched between Mount Vesuvius and Mount Faito lies a new modern, eco-friendly hotel on the sea. Opening onto the pedestrian beach boardwalk, Hotel Miramare is the perfect location for visiting Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The lesser known town of Castellammare di Stabbia is well worth exploring! Full of quaint bars, shops and restaurants and famous for healing waters that lower blood pressure and taste divine, this authentic town provides a true taste of Italian life. Walk with the locals at sunset, venture up to Gragnano for handmade pasta and sparkling red wine or take a ferry to the nearby islands of Capri and Ischia. Each room boasts views of the gulf of Napoli and the sweet sound of waves rolling onto the sand. Enjoy breakfast and dinner onsite or organize a special event on the sea level patio or 7th floor terrace. Outdoor swimming pool, excisions and concierge services provided.
We had a quite fantastic stay here. After a week in Rome with our family we arrived her to enjoy 1 week alone from 20.10.2018. We met immediately upon arrival Fransesco at the front desk, and we enjoyed his great local knowledge and his smile. We also managed to follow his recommendations, so we visited the entire Amalfi and a day trip to Capri.
We loved the room on 6.th floor with a balcony directly to the Mediterranean sea and the sea`s shower all day and night. What more could you ask for?
The breakfast buffet was tasteful and with direct sea views. The room was spotless and the towels were replaced a the time. We slept well in the beds, and we enjoyed the view and our meditative moment on the balcony.
We recommend the hotel to anyone who read this review.
We thank you for the most wonderful stay, and we would love to come back.
Stayed four nights at this hotel, couldn't fault hotel or service. From welcome drink to loading car on departure everything perfect. Hotel restaurant great but many others in close proximity even at this time of year. Area is a bit tired but overlooks Bay of Naples, Capri and Vesuvius. Great views drinking wine on balcony @ 11.00pm at night.
I must admit I nearly cancelled my booking after reading reaviews about Castellammare di Stabia. But I’m so glad I didn’t! The area is full of character! And yes the beach is not great but who needs a beach when you have this hotel! With breathtaking sea views, right by the sea! When we sat on a balcony enjoying the sunset, it felt like we’re on a boat! All you can see is waves, sunset and Vesuvio outline in the distance.
Upon arrival we were instantly transfered into a different world! Stylish modern design, squeaky clean! And staff, the hotel’s staff were so polite and attentive we almost forgot we’re in Italy! We were greeted with a glass of prosecco, which we enjoyed on the lobby terrace, overlooking the sea.
Dinner (sea views again) was incredible! A mix between high end and typical italian food. Aesthetically pleasing prssentation and oh so delicious! If you happen to speak Russian, a lady working in a restaurant will be happy to translate the menu for you. Her service was second to none and made our stay even more enjoyable. It is a bit pricey and if you wish to save some cash there’s a pizzeria (and many more bars and restaurants) across the road serving authentic Italian pizza.
Not to forget about outdoor swimming pool and a bar. Everything was top notch!
I found myself feeling a bit emotional when checking out and almost shared a tear! Never did it happen to me before! I pray I earn some more cash next year and spend few more days in this wonderful Miramare Hotel!
P.S. Private teansfer from the Naples airport took around 45 mins. And as it was after 10pm cost around £70.
