First the pluses: you will not find a greater ambassador for the city than Bozena. Although not a native born Neapolitan, or even Italian, she cannot speak more highly of her adoptive home and what it has to offer. Her warnings on how to stay safe are both sadly apposite and worth heeding and her recommendations on attractions and restaurants are excellent.
The breakfasts are huge and fresh and the welcome she laid out for us was wonderful.
The negatives: personally I like a bit more privacy than was afforded by staying in someone's own home and, while converting family homes is increasingly common, this on the wrong side of the line for me - still too much home and not enough privacy. To explain, our privacy wasn't invaded (as far as I know) but I like a room that I lock to remain locked after it's been cleaned, rather than having to rely on the honesty of other guests.
Some of the fittings in the room were loose, such as the light switch to the bathroom.
Lastly it was simply a style that wasn't to my taste: I like modern and uncluttered; this place is eclectic and very busy. I was reminded of a cross between Zorba the Greek and David Copperfield's Miss Faversham. Sorry.
