I spent five nights in this hotel and I was very pleased to see that it was what I was expecting: the area is really nice (we had a room with a view to the castle), the staff very friendly (kudos to the ones taking care of the restaurant, very attentive and polite) and the overall experience really made us...

We stayed at the Royal for 4 nights in August, we paid extra for a superior room with sea view and I'm so glad we did. The balcony was just big enough for two chairs but perfect to sit out and enjoy the view over to Castel Ovo (please excuse my spelling!) and the panoramic sea views. We asked for... More

We only stayed for one night and didn't get to use much of the hotel facilities (pool, gym). The room we got was very good size and had a large balcony with sea view which would have been lovely to sit out if it were warmer when we visited. the staff (reception and bar) were very helpful and professional.

Location, location, location. When my wife and I travel in Europe, we try to walk everywhere, so the location of the hotel is of prime importance. We walked everywhere we went in Naples, except to the Capodimonte and to the airport; even then, taxis are available just outside, or the desk will call one for you. The location of the... More

We checked in on 22nd July, we had arrived earlier than planned so we had drinks in the hotel 'Lounge Bar' where staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the view from our balcony was wonderful. Equally the view where we sat and eat breakfast looking across the bay was amazing. WiFi was free and... More

We paid a significantly higher amount to get a seaview room with balcony. Had we NOT had this room, I would have been seriously upset at wasting my money in a hotel that is so indifferent to its guests. The positives: the room. It was large, a corner room, and we were happy to have a balcony with a lovely... More

We spent one night is this hotel with 2 other couples. The spot, location of the hotel is great, just in front of the sea and overlooking the fortress. You just have to cross the street to enjoy a great meal in restaurant by the small port of the fortress. The wifi is free and available in all the hotel.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Four stars for the Hotel Royal Continental, a hotel on the seafront promenade of Naples with a fascinating past, rebuilt in 1955 by Ferdinando Chiaromonte where once stood the Grand Hotel Royal des Etrangers . Today it is known as a structure of great prestige framed by the extraordinary beauty of the Bay of Naples. Large common areas , multiple meeting spaces , picturesque corners of relaxation, the Royal Continental sparkles elegantly with vintage charm thanks to the interiors designed by Gio Ponti , one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. The furniture too was designed by him combined with designs by young architects of his choice . All 397 rooms, of which most have large windows and a balcony facing the breathtaking view of the Gulf, are spacious and very bright. On the Floor Museum Gio Ponti you can stay in one of the 24 rooms with wooden furnishings and fixtures designed specifically for the Hotel by Ponti. Suspended furniture, three-drawer chests with feet, and magazine racks and lamps in satin brass integrated into headboards from briar have made the history of Italian design. In stunning New York style, the Roof on the tenth floor, from which the beautiful view of the ancient Borgo Marinari and the legendary Castel dell'Ovo can be enjoyed, presents the one of a kind sea-water pool designed by Gio Ponti, published in 1954 on the cover of Domus. Guests are offered the solarium, outdoor bar, Fitness Center, massages booked in advance and two exclusive restaurants with spectacular panoramic views that stretch from the Vesuvius to the hill of Posillipo and the island of Capri. Breakfast served by the sea, in addition to the buffet which offers freshly baked pastries by Hotel Royal Continental, including oven fresh Neapolitan sfogliatelle, pastry horns. Location of reference for events and meetings, the Royal Continental is a well known Conference Center of primary importance in the national scene. Equipped with the most modern equipment and complimentary Wi-Fi, the Conference Center is characterized by its many meeting rooms with natural light and sea views. An exceptional location for large or small events thanks to its Auditorium setaing 530, its 16 Meeting rooms, 13 business suites and exhibition space, more than 200 sqm large. Located in one of the liveliest and most dynamic areas of Naples, the Royal Continental is the ideal location for living and exploring the city, within walking distance from shopping streets and the main local attractions, 10 minutes walk from Piazza Plebiscito and the Royal Palace. Furthermore, it is a 7 minutes drive to the harbour for ferry connections, 10 minutes to the Central Station and 20 to the International Airport. Not just a hotel but the real meeting point in the city, with its numerous events, food and wine tasting events, exhibitions, parties and aperitifs. ... more   less
