"nice budget hotel"
The hotel was conveniently located 15 mins away from the ischia port by bus and 10 mins walk from a nice private beach and bars. The staff was helpful and the rooms were clean but do not expect anything fancy. We stayed in 2 different rooms, which both had a great view of the sea.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff were lovely, welcoming, friendly, always looking to help! The advice given on where to go/what to see was not very good, but I suppose that is a matter which is dependant on the person! The rooms were perfect, exactly as described, not fancy but clean, comfortable and kind of quaint. The breakfasts were delicious! With a lack of menu […] it was originally a little confusing as to what was on offer but when we worked it out it was delicious! Breads, hams, cheeses, omelates, as well as many other things! The interior was similar to the rooms, it was really lovely! The pool had thermal water so it was warm and salty which originally we did not like, but when we realised this was the case everywhere on the island and the water makes your skin soft and lovely we quickly changed our opinion! On top of everything, the wine was lovely and only 5euros for a litre!!!! The nearby town of Ischia Porto is nice, but if you walk a little further to Ischia Ponte it is much more worth it! Casamicciolo on the other side is also nice but again if you continue to Lacco Amano, it is worth it! In Lacco Amano there is a lovely restaurant called Kalinikta which is DIVINE. Also this town has the wonderful spa Negumbo. Further around the island, San. Angelou is beautiful!!! The bus goes all the way around the island, you must have a ticket which can be bought from reception but it is not necessary to stamp it giving you free travel!!

"Great hotel for families with teenagers"
We had a lovely relaxing holiday and spent most days around the pool which was very clean with plenty of sunbeds. We had two rooms and both were of a good size and very clean. The staff were really helpful. The location was good with a bus stop outside. This is a lovely island and a great hotel with breath-taking views and we would highly recommend […] it.

"Brilliant Hotel Gemma!"
Our second stay at Hotel Gemma, after our honey moon in 2011. We returned in June 2013 for our wedding anniversary and the family running the hotel is still the same, with still the same warm and nurturing atmosphere. Very enjoyable swimming pool with spa water (your skin stays so beautifully smooth). Brilliant location for local transports with bus […] stops at the doorsteps. And then, just outside the doors, there is the fantastic Ischia island. Very recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good one - reasonable distance to the places"
I spent one week at Hotel Gemma in the middle of May 2013. It's a nice family-run hotel between Ischia Porto and Casamicciola Terme. Staff is friendly, helpful and really dedicated to run the hotel. Room was clean, and with balcony which was nice. Nice view from the roof terrace! Breakfast was included to the price and it was very good: regular stuff […] from buffet (bread, butter, jam, yogurt, coffees, fruits...), other things like eggs, ham, cheese and/or tomatos comes by request. Nice dinner restaurant in the hotel, other ones within reasonable walking distance. Bus stops next to the hotel, walking distance to Ischia Porto ~2 km and to the port of Casamicciola Terme ~1 km. Please note: buses are always full - and it means f-u-l-l: principally there are no seating places available. And the island is (obviously!) quite hilly, so if your legs are not in good condition, maybe it's better to choose another hotel, closer to the center of Ischia. To me this was one of the best price/quality ratios I've ever been in western/southern Europe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"lovely family run hotel"
Lovely friendly hotel,great food,personal service. Enjoyed the thermal pool. Will definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my second visit to this lovely family run Hotel. I stayed here for a night on a short business trip to Ischia. Marco and his brother were super friendly and spoke decent English, which in the end was a huge help. I was in a tricky situation with catching an auto ferry to Prochida. There was a obvious miscommunication between me and the ticket […] agent. The staff at the hotel drove me down to the port and spoke to the agent to diffuse the situation. They also made several phone calls for me to help with my work and accommodations. This place is beautiful and clean. The restaurant was not open at the time of my latest stay however, the first time I was there I ate from the restaurant and it was delicious. My advice is stay here!! I will definitely be back.

Everything was excellent: the thermal pool with hydro-massage, the garden, the restaurant and the view on the Gulf from the roof at night. I had a clean and tidy room with a most comfortable bed, a Crucifix on the wall and a balcony (table, two chairs, a cloth dryer) overlooking the sea. Breakfasts on the terrace with an amazing view on the Vesuvius. […] You could help yourself croissants and cakes, jam and honey, juice, milk, muesli, fruit... Other things were brought for free when you asked. I adored the Cappucino they made for me every morning. And once when I was late and all the croissants were over they baked two for me, and those were the best I ever had in my life! The dinner was also delicious, every time they cooked something new and tasty. I can't forget the one they made for Ferragosto - a real party with musicians, beautiful decorations and many tasty surprises! To say that the staff were friendly is to say nothing. They put their heart into it, always caring, helping, cheering you up and giving useful information. They told us about the thermal parks where I could (and did!) cure my allergy, and even gave a discount. It was easy to get everywhere from the hotel as there was a CD-CS bus stop just near it. And you could walk (10 min) to Casamicciola with its shops, port, MD-discount (a big supermarket), beach and what not. There was also a private beach near the hotel (they also gave a discount). In brief, I’ll come back to Ischia just to stay at hotel Gemma! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sehr schönes Hotel, kommen gerne wieder."
Familienhotel, nette Leute, Gute Lage, schöne Aussicht, Thermalpark in der Nähe, Preis/Leistung stimmt.Genuine Expedia guest review
Очень хороший отель,очень удобно расположен по отношению к парку Кастильоне. На посещение парка дают талон на скидку. Очень не удобно,что в номере нет холодильника,но это-ерунда. НЕмного шумит дорога в номере с видомна море,но это тоже чепуха по сравнению с видом на море. Завтраки однообразные,но очень качественные. И замечательный кофе. Фреш за плату. […] Интернет не быстрый,но есть....Но,при всем при том,остановилась бы в этом отеле еще раз с превеликим удовольствием. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel with all facilities and great food"
Excellent facilities including termal pool, very good food for dinner (menu), special discounts for the thermal parks on Ischia. By bus you can reach Ischia porto in only 5 minutes. The family managing the hotel are very friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed our holidays there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful place to stay!"
09/13/14 Michelle M
We loved our stay at the Hotel Gemma. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. We had no idea what we were going to do in Ischia, and they gave us great directions and recommendations. My cousin ate at the hotel restaurant one night (I wasn't feeling too hot) and enjoyed her meal there. The breakfasts were great! There are bus lines in front of the hotel and easy taxi rides into the port. I would definitely stay here again while in Ischia!
"A lovely place to stay!"
08/02/14 irishangel17 Preston, United Kingdom
We have just returned from a 10 night stay at the Hotel Gemma. We got a very good deal! It is a family run hotel and you are made to feel part of it! Domenico on reception was very helpful, hekping us to translate the menu each day! Our room although a little small had two balconies, one overlooking the garden/pool and the other with a beautiful sea view! We got clean towels every day and fresh bedding. We went bed and breakfast, but the evening meals were so nice ans only 17 euros for a four (sometimes 5 course meal ) was certainly well worth the money!. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone wanting really good value for money in a very traditonal Italian family run hotel.
"Second visit...same quality"
06/01/14 Nigelmop Southampton
After a gap of 7 years we stayed once again. Although perhaps some parts of the hotel needs updating the service provided by the family was first class. Half board was on special offer and each 4 course meal was different. The home cooking was fantastic although we had to google some of the menu items to see what was being cooked. We used the bus service again was was still cheap but less frequent than last time. Went to Negombo thermal park and this place is worth a visit. The hotel give vouchers for 3 euro discount. It all helps.
"Friendly Staff, Clean Rooms, Thermal Pool"
08/16/13 cathyindc Washington DC
We loved our 6-day stay here! It is a family-owned and run hotel and they were absolutely wonderful! They made us feel as if we were part of the family. The room was very clean. There was air conditioning and wireless internet. The daily breakfast was excellent with a good variety of both hot and cold food. The bed was reasonably comfortable (8 out of 10) and our room opened up onto a terrace with an amazing view of the sea and of Mt. Vesuvius. The showers varied...some days solid hot water, other days it changed between hot and cold and hot during the time I took a shower. One of the things I liked most was that there was a drying rack on the terrace so we could rinse out and dry our swimwear every night. It's such a small thing, but it made a huge difference in our stay. Another thing that made a difference is that they offer a discount to the Thermal Spa that's within walking distance. We used that discount two different days. The dinners were also very good and filling. The menu was fixed and changed nightly. We were able to have rabbit one evening, which is the main dish for which Ischia is known. It was very good. It would be better to have a car, however the bus stop into town and around the island is only about 30 meters from the hotel. This made it very convenient to move around the island. I would stay here again if in the area and I have already recommended it to others who may at some point in the future visit Ischia. Loved the hotel and loved the family!
"Pleasant and a great price"
05/22/13 Samoflaherty London, United Kingdom
The buildings may be a little dated, but it is well presented with beautiful gardens and the personnel were great - helpful and courteous. For what we paid the services incl. the pool, spa, breakfast etc were fantastic. It is on the road between casamicciola and ischia porto, and a reasonable but pleasant walk is required to reach either of the two. Buses run often however from nearby. Recommended.
"Good value for money"
05/20/13 Marina D Moscow, Russia
Very good family-run hotel with warm atmosphere. You really feel like a guest at somebody’s home, not like in a hotel. Everybody is always ready to answer all your questions and recommend the best places in Ischia. You don’t need to address tourist agency, just ask at reception. Rooms are simple and cozy, very clean. Depending on the room type you can also have big terrace (shared with neighbor room) with sun-beds. But please pay attention that all sea-view rooms are overlooking the road that is near hotel. It is main Ischia road and quite noisy. Actually, you can hear traffic even in a room, though it is not so loud. Breakfast is very good – just ask for what you want in addition to what you see on the tables. Try dinner there: it consists of many tasty dishes and costs a little. I had dinner in the hotel five evenings from eight. I liked swimming-pool very much! It is in the inner yard near mandarin orange trees, with nice thermal water and comfortable temperature - such a pleasure when you stay in Ischia in April. As far as I travelled around the island during the day, I don’t know how many people are near the pool at the daytime. But before breakfast and before dinner there were just a few or nobody. If you travel by car, there is a parking near the hotel and you can easy reach Ischia porte, Casamicciola and Lacco Ameno. It is not comfortable to walk to these towns as you need to go along the main road. Bus stop is just a few steps from the hotel, great if you plan to discover the island using public transport (like I did). But buses in Ischia don’t go so often sometimes. Summary. Good value for money. Great if you plan to travel around the island by car (or even by bus). Far from the beaches. Near the road.

"Gemma Hotel, Ischia, Italia"
07/22/12 Judith M Sunnyvale, California
This hotel really is a gem!! Our rooms all had a view of the sea. The staff was so wonderful! Warm and caring and so very helpful with recommendations for shopping, dining, sight-seeing. Most of them spoke English, but we still tried our Italian with them and they helped us with that, too! The rooms were spacious and comfortable and had air condtioning! Much needed in July! The hotel is in a great spot to walk to town or catch the bus to other ports. Loved it there!!! Thank you Franco and familia! And Erin and Marcello!!
"A 360º experience"
07/16/12 cucciolo76 Barcelona, Spain
A 3-star hotel with a thermal swimming pool?!? YES!!!! Amazing Hotel, the most genuine and kindest staff, fantastic and always different food (large quantities and real Italian taste!)...ths is really a hidden heaven in Ischia for the reasonable rates they require! Definitively one of the highest quality/price ratios hotels where I have been! After 7 days, I felt really part of the family and I was so sad to leave! but I will be back!
"The Best of Italy!!!!!"
07/15/12 JSR813 Carlisle, Pennsylvania
Our best memories from our first trip to Italy are from Gemma Hotel. The isle of Ischia is breathtaking and the hospitality of Franco, Marcello, and Grandma Gemma made this a perfect get-away. Instead of being rushed, trying to see everything at once, we were able to slow down, enjoy the island, the food, and the culture. We have great memories from our whole two week trip as we hit many of the key tourist sites, but the few days we stayed at this hotel made our trip complete. We will definitely visit Italy again soon . . . and we will definitely stay longer at Gemma Hotel!
