Roccamonfina is up and up, away from the A1 Florence/Rome to Naples. It may have been 25C in Rome but was a mere 15C when we arrived. The modern looking hotel is decorated in a rather unattractive burnt yellow with dark green woodwork. It is on the main street which has a pedestrian area inbetween the two lanes of traffic where many groups of people of all ages gathered on the Saturday evening and again on the following morning. There are plenty of bars here but the only restaurant we found was in the hotel.
The hotel appeared empty when we arrived, were we the only guests? A member of staff came out, showed us where to park in front of the hotel and took our bags up to the room. We discovered him to be a jack-of-all-trades as he popped up later in other guises such as waiter, barman. There is a lift as well as stairs and many arragements of artificial flowers around the place.
The room was large, divided into two by a piece of furniture that formed a division between the sleeping and sitting areas. There was a three seater settee, low table, desk and chair and bedside tables and lamps by the bed. The lighting was a curious arrangement with a small keypad to operate the room lights except the one you need most, just inside the door.
The sitting area and the bathroom both have floor to ceiling windows with wooden shutters opening onto a balcony. In the bathroom was a bidet, wc, walk-in shower with 5 controls, hairdryer-no nozzle, a wobbly shaving/make-up mirror, usual toiletries but no tissues. The bed was comfortable, we both slept well, and the room was very clean. Breakfast was in an upstairs room and the waiter brought what we asked for, even though he had to keep going downstairs to the kitchen for it. We discovered that we were indeed the hotel's only guests which explained the rather dis-organised approach by the staff, although the two we met were helpful.
We ate in the hotel, we chose pasta which was cooked al dente and it was, well, ok; wine was 8 Euros a bottle but there was no decaf coffee or any tea apart from breakfast tea.

What can I say? From the moment we arrived and till the last second of our visit we felt the warmth and truly friendliness of Fabio and his fellow’s.
The Hotel is beautiful in the heart of the small community town of Roccamonfina and a perfect spot to tour Campania area as well as Napoli and Amalfi Coast.
The hotel has luxury rooms and suits, the breakfast is just delicious with homemade pies and croissants, and the dinner at the hotel restaurant is just a perfect example of local cuisine - fresh and prepared with love and care.
Way to go Fabio, we will certainly return to this outstanding spot in central Italy.
Ciao E ci vediamo!!!

We were two couples staying here in the middle of May. We were on a bit of a road trip exploring family history – so many Italian Americans on the East Coast, particularly from Rhode Island and Massachusetts, come originally from this area between Rome and Naples. And we were also making our way to the coast, Gaeta, before returning to Rome.

Roccamonfina was an absolute delight, nestled at the top of the mountain, surrounded by groves of sweet chestnut trees and approached by winding roads which curled round this now extinct volcano.

The Roccamonfina Palace Hotel was an excellent find and unexpected in terms of the quality and size of its rooms and décor. It’s clear that this hotel has been completely renovated to a very high standard. The rooms are spacious with marble floors, comfortable kingsize beds and mood lighting. The bathrooms are luxurious with large walk-in showers. Some rooms have balconies which overlook the picturesque town square and the top of the mountain in the distance.

The owners, brothers Fabio and Gianluca, went out of their way on so many occasions to assist us in our search for family history and we were very grateful for their efforts. Viewing old records in the local Ufficio Demografica was a special treat.

Dinners at the hotel restaurant were excellent, whether it was the local pasta or pizza or steak. They even arranged for us to visit a winery about 30 min drive from the town.

Over 3 days we visited many of the tiny villages which are dotted around this mountain. Everywhere we went the people were warm, welcoming and helpful. And at the end of each day we would return to the Palace – a comfortable and luxurious hotel in this lovely, hillside town. Many thanks to Fabio and Gianluca. Would highly recommend and would return again in a heartbeat!

My family stayed at the Palace Hotel for a couple of nights when visiting family nearby. The hotel is beautifully decorated and well maintained. It appears to have had a complete renovation, so the rooms, lobby and common areas are first class and modern. The rooms are quite spacious, clean, and comfortable. One of our rooms had a balcony overlooking the town square. This place is a gem in the countryside of Campagnia. The service is fine, but nothing special. Would stay here again.
