This 'hotel' moved all of out things after one night in the room, into another without us knowing. And the courteous way they told us, with a paper note on the door after getting home one night was a touch of class. I am absolutely disgusted. So my wife went to our room after coming in on the second night,...

The beds are terribly uncomfortable, you can feel each mattress spring; my husbands mattress was thicker than mine; the whole bed was wobbly and not at all good. The room has very old furniture with questionable cleanliness. Breakfast room looks much less attractive than on the photos and food isn't re-stocked after it runs out so there's a pretty good...

We have just spent a great week at the Purple. The location is fantastic, within easy reach of the centre of Sant' Agnello and Sorrento, with good local transport connections. The hotel is basic but good value overall. We booked a double with sea view and a quadruple for our 2 teenage children (only one available when booking) but when...

Lovely place to stay in a quiet part of Sant Agnello. Amazing views over the bay of Naples just a few metres from this hotel. The hotel is quite basic but provides all you need for a nice stay. More of a hostel than a hotel with really helpful, friendly staff. Train station is a ten minute walk away and...

- The pool was green. - The pool was out of service for the entire time that we were there, despite being told that it would be "fixed first thing tomorrow morning." - Our online booking said sea view but we didn't receive this and the girl from the front desk simply fed us excuses about the online booking being...

We signed up for a "sea view" room and were very disappointed when we got there and were given a room that faced the front of the hotel. The woman claimed that when we booked, the online booking system wasn't communicating properly to the real booking system, so although it showed that a sea view room was available, it actually...

We spent one week in Purple hotel in July 2016, in a group od three friends. It has a really good location, and it's affordable, but I would rather choose it if you plan to move a lot by the coast and not to spend too much time there. We were of course aware of the fact, that the place...

Very welcoming staff and a nice converted monastery (?). Stayed in bed and breakfast basis which was great. They offered evening meals and we tried this for one of their themed nights.
