Great HotelPosted Nov 18, 2013
Pros: Everything, the gardens the views from the room across the Bay of Naples
Location: The only drawback was the lack of restaurants in the area but that might have been due to the fact it was November.
A great hotel in the perfect location for visiting Herculanum and Mount Vesuvius The gardens are stunning and parking is in a secure area.

Lovely, large roomsPosted Oct 11, 2013
We were amazed at the size of the rooms and the bathroom. While you walked through what might be considered an unsafe area, it was entirely safe.

Fawlty Towers run by Manuel's Italian CousinPosted Sep 17, 2013
Pros: Nothing. No, actually, it was close to Herculaneum. That was the one and only plus. If taxidermy is your thing the street outside had a fresh dead cat
Cons: Remove all mould (this would take a long time), repaint, sound proof windows, more courteous staff, housekeeping that actually cleans rooms, and more
Location: Train to Naples. Drive to Vesuvius. Walk the delightful streets of Ercolano whilst you experience the fear of being mugged or worst at any moment
Advertised as a 4* hotel this place is living in the past. The grounds are nice when the fountains are switched on and the water is flowing (apparently only for weddings). It would seem the place had investment back in the 90s and the villa was refurbed. Now, the rooms have peeling paint everywhere whilst the bathrooms have an atmospheric coating of mould ringing the bathtub and many other areas. The place supposedly had wifi but it didn't work in the rooms. Temporarily broken from what I was told. The bar area was basically unstaffed as far as I could tell as I had to walk around for ages looking for someone. I got the vibe they didn't have many English speaking tourists because communicating with the staff was not that easy though many English reviews have been posted. The standard of cleanliness was quite low which was very disappointing and if you have a room facing the gardens during a wedding good luck getting to sleep early. Ultimately, if you want to stay a very short walk from Herculaneum's archaeological site this place is your only option. However, given there's nothing around here any visit to the site would be best from another location. Come in and stay somewhere else.

great hotel but...Posted Sep 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is in an old family mansion and has been designed beautifully but, it is well on it's way to needing lots of TLC. Our room was damp.The pool was great.The area around is dreadful. A good restaurant is near but, closed all of August.We caught the train in to Naples everyday but take care the last one is around 9.30pm.

Close to Vesuvio, Pompei, Herculaneum, NaplesPosted Aug 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Wonderful hotel. A beautiful oasis in a hectic city. Walking distance to Herculaneum and easy drive/bus to other important sites

hotel reviewPosted Aug 6, 2013
Location: n/a. stayed in our rooms due to the unsafe feeling of the neighborhood we were located in or seemed to be located in.
although the hotel had nice pictures and reviews for staying, it was pretty far from naples. Additionally it was located in a neighborhood that was pretty sketchy and I know we do not plan to come back to the hotel again. The wifi is only located in the lobby and that makes things hard for those who would like to use wifi in their rooms. The hotel staff were nice and accommodating. But due to the location from the main city, I am not sure if I would choose the hotel again. The main entrance is not the one that is shown online (the online pic is the back mini park of the hotel and is not the entrance that you will use upon arrival to the hotel). Would advise about doing a good map look before choosing this hotel. We are travelers from a suburban safe neighborhood in the States.

An idlyllic retreat close to everythingPosted Jul 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
We loved our stay at this hotel in Herculaneum. It is situated within a beatufiul garden just a few blocks from the Heculaneum excavations.The food (breakfast) was wonderful. The gardens and pool were delightful. We only stayed one night, but if we could do it again, we would have stayed two because it is very convenient to the train that travels to Pompeii. After a long day at Pompeii it would be easy and fairly quick to return to Herculaneum to stay the night. (The trip from Sorrento to Pompeii is much longer). For the price it was the best value for the money of our entire trip (Rome, Herculaneum and Sorrento). If you stay here you will want to stay in the gardens and hotel because the surrounding town is not all that interesting. But it is a wonderful oasis!

Beautiful grounds and gardens.Posted Jun 29, 2013
Pros: Miglia D'oro Park Hotel was a relaxing oasis in a busy area just a one block walk from the Herculaneum Scavi (archeological site.)
Cons: The park fountains would have been much prettier if they had been cleaned and in use. Some areas of flaking plaster need repair both in and outdoors
Location: The one block walk to the Herculaneum Dig site was great, as was the Virtual Museum for Pompei. It was a 20 minute train ride into City of Naples.
We loved our private balcony and used it in the morning for sunning and viewing Mt. Vesuvius in the distance; in the evening for relaxation with a glass of wine. On two evenings we even viewed fireworks in the vicinity of Naples across the water. The room was large and comfortable. We needed to ask for electrical converters to use our U.S. cords, but they were available from the front desk. The pool area was never overcrowded and had large umbrellas for shade. This was a great value for our four night stay.

Great choice for visiting the Archeological SitesPosted Jun 7, 2013
Our room was exceptional - a suite really. Huge, beautifully equipped with 2 bathrooms a living room and bedroom and an enormous private terrace overlooking the lovely gardens. The weather was cold and raining so coming back to the Jacuzzi bath was great. The hotel is only a few minutes from the entrance to Herculaneum and only a few stops on the Circumvesuviana railway to Pompeii and Oplontis. We would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to visit those sites. The fixed price menu was very reasonable and good too.

fine hotel, superb location near HerculaneumPosted Jun 6, 2013
This is a fine hotel; the room (including a small sitting area) was attractive and well-maintained - with a luxurious bathroom. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The grounds (with a lovely formal garden area) were an exceptional added benefit. For many the most attractive feature of this hotel is that it is within three blocks of the Herculaneum excavations. Do note that for those driving that having a GPS device might be advisable. The streets in Ercolano are quite a tangle and it is very easy to go astray. Also, do get very specific instructions for getting on and off the Autostrada. When one (finally?) arrives at the hotel the ample secure parking area is another plus.
