The Amalfi Coast, Capri, and Naples Hotel Reviews

Hotels in Italy are usually well maintained (especially if they've earned our recommendation in this book), but in some respects they won't match what you find at comparably priced U.S. lodgings. Keep the following points in mind as you set your expectations, and you're likely to have a good experience:

Rooms are usually smaller, particularly in cities. If you're truly cramped, ask for another room, but don't expect things to be spacious. A "double bed" is commonly two singles pushed together. In the bathroom, tubs are not a given—request one if it's essential. In budget places, showers sometimes use a drain in the middle of the bathroom floor. Washcloths are a rarity. Most hotels have satellite TV, but there are fewer channels than in the United States, and only one or two will be in English. Don't expect wall-to-wall carpeting; tile floors are the norm.
