I stayed at this hotel for one night, arriving late on a Saturday night and leaving for Pompeii after a day of sightseeing in Naples. Although it was dark when I arrived, and the neighborhood surrounding the train station doesn't have the best of reputations, I felt safe while walking the couple of blocks to this hotel because it's on...

The hotel is superficially good looking - all new doors, and furniture, but a closer inspection is horrifying. I took the ceramic tooth mug from my room to reception to show the thick mould growing in the bottom. The concierge did not look surprised or even concerned. He washed it and returned it without a hint of apology. The toilet... More

You had to ask the staff for anything at least 3 times. Both sinks didnt drain. Got to our room only to find old hairs in both of our bed linens. Asked to change rooms, the next room was just as dirty so we have up. Table in te room had dried up food grime that the maid tried to... More

After some days in Rome where we had to spend a LOT for basic services and food; Napoli has appeared like an oasis. And Hotel Potenza is no exception. Very affordable with a helping staff and reasonable next-door restaurant makes this hotel a good find. Rooms are not wide but have high ceilings. Due to lack of floor cleaning there... More

Coming into Napoli, a notoriously crime ridden city, it was a great comfort to get a room right next to the train station that made me feel secure. If you're worried about it being far from sights, don't worry. Its a very short walk into town.

It has been a great pleasure to stay in Naples. Hotel Potenza offers small but cozy accommodation next to the main train station. Only thing that was upsetting for us is that rooms are not sound-proof and you can hear everything that is going on in the corridor. WiFi in the lounge is an advantage for all. Breakfast is absolutely... More

We needed a place close to the station for an early morning departure and, after spending a long day walking all over this lovely city we found a perfect spot in the Potenza. It's very close to the station, right on Piazza Garibaldi. The walk to and from the station is maybe 3 minutes. The hotel has a tiny lobby,... More

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Naples. Let me start by saying that the hotel is incredibly convenient to the train station. I was traveling with my parents and two children, and we had no problem dragging the bags - maybe a 5 minute walk. Okay - the construction project in Piazza Garibaldi is MASSIVE and the traffic...

This hotel was right by the train station and many bus stops, but I would never go back. The bed was clean and comfortable enough. The television was very small. The room stank of cigarette smoke all day and night which was not too surprising as there were ashtrays all over the hotel. There is massive construction going on in... More

Potenza is a good option for those who want to save money. If you are able to pay a bit more I would recommend to book 4 star hotel. During evening hours a strong smell of cigarettes was all over the room coming through air conditioning system probably. The breakfast was really poor and was repeated every single day: coffee,...
