Very good location - walking distance to Vietre Sul Mare and very close to the autostrade (freeway) entrance to get to Naples or Rome. Very close to roads that wind down the Amalfi coastline. Location of this hotel was perfect.
The hotel was very nice - good size room, ample storage, nice bathroom although shower was a bit small and you have to be very careful opening and closing the shower doors (they will fall off the track). Bed mattress was not very good at all - that was the worst aspect of the room. Views from the room were mostly over the shipyard but you could view the sea from the patio. The shipyard was very noisy at times during the day but with the doors and windows closed, you couldn't hear it.
The breakfast buffet was excellent. Eggs, bacon, juices, cereal, fresh fruit, and lots of pastries. Very nicely done, with attendants to service your coffee / tea needs.
Parking was a bit of a challenge but bottom line, I had a spot to park each evening. I am not sure how they handle parking when the hotel is full - it was pretty empty while I was there.
Hotel staff spoke english and was very professional and accommodating.
I would stay in this hotel again!

Palazzo Suriano is a beautiful, clean, comfortable place to stay. It is run by Paolo and Carlo, who take personal responsibility for making their customers as comfortable as possible. Nothing is too much trouble for them. When our hire car broke down as soon as we arrived, Paolo made numerous calls to the hire company to speak to them in Italian on our behalf. When the hire company failed to deliver a replacement car, Paolo took us all the way back to Naples to pick up the car. Whilst we were without a car, Carlo drove us to Salerno so that we could take a ferry trip, and so that we could still get around. Paolo has a vast knowledge of the local sites of archaeological and historical interest, and is able to recommend and advise as and when needed. The hotel has beautiful quiet gardens where you can sit and read with a bottle of wine (as we did!!), and an impressive library of books in both Italian and English. The breakfasts are beautiful, and 'all you can eat', and can be taken on the balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples, the sea sparking in the early morning sunshine. The 300 year-old frescos on the library ceiling are also well worth a look. This is a beautiful place to stay, in idyllic surroundings and we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough!
