Excelsior review Rate it

Royals, film stars and jet-setters of all ilks have walked the Excelsior's sumptuously decorated halls and corridors. A Neapolitan landmark, it exerts a heady glamour - helped by its enviable position overlooking the bay, with Vesuvius as the backdrop and the Borgo Marinaro right opposite. Every room is different, though all share a fin-de-siècle polish. The top-floor restaurant, La Terrazza, offers breathtaking views; for a pre-dinner tipple, there's a bar on the ground floor.
