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
During my site inspection tour of Naples, I decided to stay in this great hotel. I booked via hotel consolidator and got a very good price. Better than travel agent discount. My room was nice, renovated with great view to Vesuvio. I love George Restaurant in the hotel. Great food and very good service. Highly recommend.
We have recently stayed in this beautiful hotel for 3 nights and we had an amazing stay. This hotel is everything you would expect from a 5 start hotel: the service, the location, the interior. A lovely young man Daniele who checked us in was first class and was ever so helpful. We have stayed in a gorgeous room with a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. The hotel is simply beautiful and luxurious with a very friendly and professional service. Breakfast was superb and served on the top floor restaurant with breath-taking views of the bay and Mount Vesuvius. It also has a magnificent terrace that is simply stunning. The downstairs lounge/bar was wonderful too and the gentleman who served us drinks was very nice and knowledgeable about the wines. I would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone in the hotel for their outstanding service and very warm welcome we received. We would definitely recommend the hotel to our friends and family.
This hotel has spoiled us for all others. The staff is amazing and they treated us like royalty. They were also funny and wity making us laugh as we tried to print our broading passes. The hotel surprised us with champange and strawberries for our anniversary in room as well. Breakfast was a wonderful experience. Everything here is a 5 star experience. Even the door man rushed to grab our luggage as we exited the elevator — knowing we were heading to the airport he told my husband not to worry he would secure a cab and make sure they did not over charge us. Oh and that handsome man pictured on their website behind the front desk, is there and he is dangerously charming. Stay here you won’t regret it
First impressions great. But location is really hard to come to grips with. Nothing in easy walking distance. It’s on the top of the cliffs. Wonderful views but so hard to stay there. Taxis needed to go anywhere
Staff good. Rooms good. But pathetic restaurant. When nothing is easy to walk to. You’d think that the “casual dining” would excel. Ha !!!! 5 items on the menu. It’s the same menu as roomservice
The other restaurant is so far hip itself. Wouldn’t let me in wearing shorts. Ok go back and changed into Jeans. Also wouldn’t let me in !!!!!
So good hotel. Great people. But HARD work to stay there
My wife and I stayed here from the 20th – 23rd October. The hotel is located on the side of a hill overlooking the bay and is a taxi ride from the centre of the city. It is walkable going down but it's a steep climb back up. The taxi journeys are an unforgettable experience and the drivers were, overall, helpful and pleasant but the roads and pavements leave a lot to be desired.
The reception staff were fantastic and knowledgeable they helped us with restaurant recommendations and travel advice and always answered our numerous questions with a smile.
I asked for a walk-in shower and unfortunately the room had no view although towels, robes and slippers were provided.
Breakfast is not to be missed on the spectacular sixth floor terrace overlooking the bay and Mount Vesuvius . It was simply glorious! There are excellent choices for breakfast and the staff were very efficient and pleasant. I am sorry that we did not use the George Restaurant as I understand the meal is divine.
We did use the ground floor bar in the evenings, before and after dinner and the Bar Manager and his team were first class.
We enjoyed ourselves so much we didn't want to leave, and we will return to this wonderful hotel again.
