The hotel's Mediterranean restaurant overlooks the pool and serves traditional Italian dishes and island specialities, including fresh fish from the port, accompanied by wine from local vineyards.

Guestrooms. The Hotel Parco Cartaromana offers 30 guestrooms located on five floors, all of which have cool white and mint decor with ceiling fans and tiled floors; amenities include televisions, direct-dial phones and bathrooms with showers.
Expert Tip. The Old Town of Ischia Ponte is 800 metres from the hotel and its lively narrow streets are strewn with workshops, small shops, restaurants and pubs. This is where the 'bridge' begins, the walkway that leads to the impressive rock on which the Aragonese Castle rises. The Sant'Anna Rocks are 200 metres away, and the Tower of Michelangelo, now a museum and events venue, is 300 metres away.
Double Standard: One double bed or two twin beds. Cool white and mint decor with tiled floors and ceiling fans. Television and direct-dial phone. Bathroom with shower.
Getting there. Buses run from the airport to Naples train station and the port (Piazza Municipio). Taxis are also available from the airport. Hydrofoils and ferries run from the port to the island. From Ischia's port, take bus number C12 or C14 to Cartaromana. Taxis are also available from the port to the hotel and should take around ten minutes. The town centre and beach are accessible on foot or using the local bus services, which stop outside the hotel. A complimentary shuttle bus runs to the spa.
Driving directions. Take the ferry for Ischia Port from the Beverello Pier in Naples. Disembark at Ischia Port and follow the signs for Ischia Ponte - Castello Aragonese. When the castle is in sight, turn right before Via Seminario onto Via Nuova Cartaromana. Continue for one kilometre. The Parco Cartaromana Hotel is on the left, accessible via Via Nuova Cartaromana n. 44.
