Elegant 19th-century grande dame with an impressive wine cellar and a rooftop restaurant overlooking the Bay of Naples
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
Friendly, excellent, helpful front desk personnel, but sadly this is a very old property in the unfortunately yucky city of Naples...good food in the casual dining area. Clean and we slept well in a room with a beautiful view overlooking the city and the bay. This was a one-night stopover for catching a flight out of Naples airport.
The hotel is not bad quality, despite of the painting in the bistro area and the bathrooms, but the staff is not well trained for a five star hotel and moreover, for the “small luxury hotel” recognition, with the exception of Marco. We were not asked about our satisfaction in the checkout by any of the three staff members in the counter and one day, when the breakfast time was about to end, the staff in the restaurant simply retracted the awning on the terrace to force guests to run out of the sun.
Welcome was great when we arrived at hotel. Room very impressive and comfortable. View was breathtaking and an excellent breakfast was held in a restaurant overlooking Naples bay
Price of drinks in bar was extremely pricey which was a shame and the bistro et is expensive too. Be prepared to pay the ‘town tax of £5 per person per night’ which is added to your bill.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
